The RHA MA150s are the little brothers to the MA350 and MA450i earphones, for those on a budget whilst not wanting to sacrifice build quality or sound quality.

The three models all share the same specifications:
* 10mm Mylar drivers
* Frequency range of 16 to 22,000Hz
* Impedance of 16ohms
* Sensitivity of 103dB
* and a rated/max power of 3/10mW.

Where the models differ is the added value, the extra features. The MA150 has 1.2m rubber cable whilst the others have braided fabric cables, are made of ABS plastic instead of machined aluminium, has fewer ear tips than the MA450i and also lacks the inline remote control of the MA450i. However, the core of the product isn't compromised - that is whether they are of good build and sound quality.

For just less than £15 these are excellent sounding - good bass response with mids & highs I wouldn't expect in "cheaper" earphones; I was impressed at just how accurate the sound reproduction is in such a small package. For me the fit was perfect plus the selection of 3 tips should ensure that for everyone; whilst passive noise isolation is never perfect, these do a very good job. It is very easy to block out the outside world and enjoy the music as it was meant to be heard without pumping the volume up. That being said, they do handle loud volume quite nicely and don't distort noticeably. As for their looks they are fairly discreet as you would expect with in-ear earphones plus they are very lightweight.

For the price and the 12 month warranty, these are great value; they really do sound fantastic and you won't be disappointed. You would be hard pressed to find as good sounding set of earphones for the price. Overall, if you don't need a remote control and you aren't fussed about a braided cable, I would recommend these highly.

I've been a big fan of the RHA in-ear ear phones for some time - I have a problem though with leaving my headphones on the train; so when it happened again & working on the basis that this wont be the last time, I thought I'd experiment, by buying the cheaper RHA 150's; and do you know what? I can't tell the difference between them and their more expensive (aluminium) counterparts. Great sound. Nice fit. Fab aftersales service. Highly recommended.

I purchased these earphones not really knowing what to expect since they were only £15 ... Wow! I have to admit I've been really impressed so far in the few days I've had them. I listen to a wide range of music, including rock, hip-hop, classical and pop and everything sounds brilliant. I would genuinely go so far as to say I would expect earphones that produced clarity and range of this quality to be much more expensive. I really want to know how good the MA-350 sound now.

Can't recommend this product enough, really excellent sound quality and a tiny price. Well done RHA!

EDIT: I initially wrote a positive review and am leaving it below exactly as it was. I have changed the star rating from 4 stars to 1 star. My RHA MA150 earphones stopped working in one ear after just a few days. I contacted the manufacturer who promptly sent me a replacement set and a pre-paid mailer so I could return the defective pair at no cost. This very good service is something that other manufacturers and retailers ought to emulate. I received the new earphones on 26 February. The replacements stopped working on April 16. So two pairs have failed in less than two months, which is very poor. I'm not contacting RHA for a warranty replacement as I don't want another pair. I'm now back to using a pair of Sennheiser CX95 which I bought in 2009 and have outlasted several other similar products. They are well worn and definitely showing their age but do still function perfectly. Like several other earphones I've bought, ranging from cheap to very expensive, these RHAs are not well enough made for daily use and are not the bargain they first seem. /EDIT

original review below:

I bought these after several much more expensive pairs (Shures and Ultimate Ears) either failed or have been lost/stolen. I am really fed up with paying big money for stuff that seems destined for a short life so decided to try these cheap RHA in-ears. I chose them because they have a decent reputation and looked like I'd be able to wear them comfortably when lying down (I like to listen to audio books with my player on a sleep timer).

Design:

Overall it's excellent. The earphones sit within the shell of the ear so nothing protrudes. This means you can put your head down or wear them under a helmet.

Sound quality excellent, they have a better all round range than others I've purchased. They fit snuggly into my ears.

These sound good. For the money they are excellent.

Build quality somewhat reflects the price. No major complaints but the cable has a flimsy, tangle-prone feel. I need to test more, but rotating the jack in my phone's socket (e.g. while phone's in a pocket) sometimes sees the sound cut out...if this persists I'll follow up with RHA.

To my ears the sound feels pretty well-rounded, warm (my ears don't hear the harshness another reviewer mentions), with plenty at the low end but perhaps not the most expressive in mid-ranges. I've not yet played with any equalisers; as is, they more than hold their own against other budget/mid range earphones I've used (Shure e2c, Klipsch s4 - both several times the price of the RHAs).

Noise isolation is good, I've found the fit good (with minimum fuss), and they are comfortable.

In short they are well worth trying; RHA have done a good job and I'm not aware of anything that comes close for the price.
