From the Manufacturer

Dynamic driver (model 130.5)

The highly capable dynamic driver (model 130.5) has been developed to offer clear, high quality bass, mid and treble reproduction.

MA350

Noise isolating, aluminium in-ear headphone

Featuring RHA's unique Aerophonic design in machined, aircraft grade aluminium, the MA350 produces richly detailed, well balanced sound and provides effective noise isolation against background noise.

Aircraft grade aluminium

Each MA350 driver housing has been machined from high quality, aircraft grade aluminium. The anodised metal offers both sonic and build quality benefits to ensure high quality audio performance and durability.

Aerophonic design

RHA's unique Aerophonic design is engineered to efficiently channel sound from the high performance dynamic drivers into the ear. The shape is inspired by the airflow properties of a trumpet's bell, allowing MA Series products to deliver full frequency, authentic sound reproduction.

Noise isolation

Included with the MA350 are three sets of RHA's dual density ear tips for a comfortable, noise isolating fit. The ear tips feature a soft silicone outer layer for comfort and blocking against exterior noise and a firmer silicone inner, to ensure a tight seal and prevent noise leakage.

Fabric braided cable

The 1.3 meter cable used on the MA350 is reinforced with a fabric braided outer layer designed to offer high level durability and resist tangling compared to conventional cable materials.

Two wearing styles

The RHA MA350 can be worn conventionally, with cables extending below the ears, or using an over-ear fit, looping the cable over and behind the ears. The over-ear fit offers greater stability and reduced cable friction during active use.

Carry bag and clothing clip

Also included with the MA350 are a carry bag for storage and a clothing clip to attach the headphone cables to clothing during active use.

3 year warranty

The MA350 has been designed and engineered to deliver the highest standard of build and audio quality, which is why it is covered by a comprehensive three year manufacturer's warranty.

Over the years I've owned lots of headphones/earphones, including various Grado, Etymotic, Koss, Panasonic, Sony, Future Sonics, Ulimate Ears, Sennheiser, etc. Having lost/broken/mislaid/had stolen many of my favorites, I've been looking for a new pair of earphones for walking around/working out, as I've grown dissatisified with an old pair Future Sonic EM-3s I've been using lately. So I looked around on Amazon, came across the RHA MA-350s, did a little reading and research, and decided to give them a try.

Sound: At first, the 350s sounded really detailed, but overly bright and lacking in bass. After several days, I realized some of the issue was that the EM-3s I'd been using were, by comparison, bass-heavy and somewhat lacking in clarity and detail. When I switch back to the EM-3s from the 350s now, the EM-3s sound muffled. That said, if you like your bass heavy and/or like rap or hip-hop, these might not be the buds for you. The bass is there, but it doesn't really whomp. Also, voices, cymbals, stringed instuments, pianos, etc. really come across, but snare drums and the like can be painful/fatiguing --*WHACK!* -- at high volume. If you like to turn it up loud, they're harsh and too bright.

Fit: Small and really comfortable. The aluminum housings are quite small and light and the tips are well-shaped and comfortable. When inserted, all you see from the front are the cords sticking out of your ears.

Looks: Nice, elegant, understated looks -- small and silver/black, the RHA logo, and that's it. Nothing unnecessary.

Other issues:

1) Microphonics from the braided cord. I do notice more noise moving around with these than I do with non-fabric covered headphones/earphones.

2) Straight plug: I prefer a right-angle plug to a straight plug.

First things first - excellent (5-star) sound, made even more excellent by the (5-star) price. I'm used to constantly replacing really crappy earbuds ($15 and under), because they always seem to break at the plug. The clarity was eye-opening -- I heard things I'd never heard before, even on albums I've been listening to for over a decade. The materials have a quality feel, and I was excited at the prospect of a more durable woven cord.

There are several complaints about bass not being powerful enough. For starters, if you're really looking at lots of thumping bass, there's really only so far earbuds with that itty-bitty 10mm driver can go. I had to play around with the settings on my Sansa to adjust from my old-hat $12 jobbies, but soon found a good mix. At first I wasn't getting any bass either, until I found a good position that engaged the noise reduction and really "locked" the earbuds into my ear canal. All was well, for a brief moment.

If you do have the earbuds "locked" into your ear canals for noise reduction, DO NOT MOVE. AT ALL. That fabric cord -- which should be named "the Serpent of Cacophony" -- will drown out nearly anything with its incessant SWEEP SWOOP SWEEP SWOOP SWEEP SWOOP as it rubs against, well, anything. It's worst when the cord rubs against another fabric -- you know, whatever your shirt, pants, or jacket are made of.

They must have woven this thing using corduroy pants, or material leftover from those compostable "Sun Chips" bags that crinkled at over 90dB. I'm all for recycling, but this renders the phones far less usable for me. I read the reviews mentioning the microphonics; I'm a commuter and I knew the risks, but I honestly didn't think that the issue could be this disruptive.

The RHAs do a lot of things well at a really low price point. Build quality and warranty are exemplary, but the general lowering of prices in the IEM field across the board means there is some really tough competition...

Sound Quality: Largish dynamic driver, 10mm. Mids and highs are fines, nothing unpleasant there, moderately rolled off treble that will not offend too many, trumpet concerto fans be forewarned. Strongly emphasized bass to the point of sloppiness in some pieces which require a more nuanced balance - e.g. Bruckner's 5th Symphony (Von Karajan, BPO) a vast orchestral piece with lots of loud things going on at once, sounded like it had a few extra kick drums in it, fuzzy and unmusical. Other classical pieces sounded fine, but the problem with Bruckner could not be duplicated with other IEMs or headphones, leading me to believe the overly thick bass was a result of driver tuning and / or response time.

Other genres sounded excellent, even very bassy stuff like Morcheeba and Massive Attack. Another odd sonic issue happened with Opeth's "Leper Affinity" track off of the Blackwater Park album. The soundstage sounded very congested and Ackfeld's vocals were recessed and murky. Similar to Bruckner (yes, Opeth / Bruckner comparison in progress here) this piece also has a lot happening at once sonically, so I am thinking this is simply a price point issue - some interplay of soundstage and response time limits. Soundstage in general seemed small, but this is very common to most IEMs.

It should be mentioned that 95% of the material I played on the 350s was absolutely fine.
