Scottish company RHA has a cheaper alternative to the more upscale ear buds on the market. The MA750s comes in two versions, one with and one without a remote control and microphone for iPhone devices (£79 and £89 respectively). But RHA earphones differ from its competitors in several areas. Build quality is top class, with beautifully designed earpieces made of steel and a variety of silicone and foam ear plugs in different sizes. The sound quality is the aim, matching the quality of headphones way out of it’s price range.
The sound stage is open, and is extremely neutral, almost too neutral for my liking. This may be at a disadvantage to those desiring a more punchy bass. However if you are looking for some headphones to replace your mobile phone earphones, then these should be on your radar. What many people found, including myself, is that one of the monitors would rattle, resulting in slightly lower volume on that monitor. However, RHA happily replaced it with their 3 year warranty included with the headphones.
- Amazing sound for the price
- Extremely well built using premium materials
- Well packaged, and fit well in the ears
- Possibility that the right monitor can rattle.
Like I said earlier, these headphones won’t mix for those wanting a more punchy bass, since the MA750s provide more of a flat sound. So, if your listening preference is to jazz or classical music, the balanced sound will suit your needs. They would also be great for studio monitors. The balanced sound enables the vocals and instruments to sound more natural.
Although, this always seems to be a preference, whether you want extra bass or not.
