Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: RHA MA150 Noise Isolating In Ear Earphones (Electronics)
I can't say I'm an earphone nut but I am impressed with these, bought to replace the standard-issue ones that came with a Samsung Galaxy S3.
Huge improvement in the bass and treble and just sensitivity generally.
Note that the lead is quite skinny at about 1.5mm. Takes up less room but looks less robust and maybe more prone to tangle.
Also the lead from the jack is angled at 135 degrees - which I like as it puts less stress on the exit point for the way I use it.
UPDATE: Having used these for a few weeks I must report the same problem as other reviewers: the cables are very "sensitive". I don't know what it is but if you touch them within a couple of feet of the buds the sound seems to travel along. Even moving your head can cause this scraping/scratching noise - momentarily. I mostly use these on a train and even there when it's a bit bouncy I get this interference. I have not found this with other phones. Maybe the finish is hard rather than soft and this causes some kind of conductivity a bit like a tin can with a string? I have also found that when walking outside with them even a slight breeze causes whistling. I cannot therefore recommend these for any kind of active use - sitting quietly is fine.
I've had to reduce to two stars because after a few months I was losing sound intermittently - looks like a fractured cable. The unit has not been subject to any abuse - just daily use. Also the interference from the cable referred to above seemed excessive. I have replaced with Brainwavz M1 which are a bit more expensive but look like they have a tougher cable and the sound is noticeably better - in fact rather good. Still some cable interference but not as bad.
