RHA MA350 — Aluminium noise isolating in-ear headphone
The award-winning British design features full aluminium construction, a fabric braided cable for reduced tangling and durability, gold plated connections and three pairs (S/M/L) of silicone tips which, together with the unique aerophonic shape of the earphone, allow the user to attain a secure and comfortable fit with maximum sound isolation.
RHA have engineered dynamic Mylar drivers which produce the astounding sound quality which has made the MA350 the critics' and customers' choice. The sound is well balanced and detailed throughout the spectrum whilst producing a rich, deep bass response and sparkling, crystal clear mids and treble.
MA350 in-ear headphone
Unique aerophonic design
Inspired by the aerophonic properties of a trumpet's bell, RHA's signature earphone design transfers sound naturally, allowing air to progress unobstructed and unforced from the speaker into the ear. The result is richly detailed, well balanced sound reproduction across the audio spectrum.
RHA headphones are designed to offer outstanding longevity; the MA350 is machined from solid, aircraft grade aluminium. A fabric braided cable reduces tangling to prolong product life.
Noise isolating design
Soft silicone tips, in combination with the discreet housing, ensures a comfortable, non-fatiguing fit for optimum noise-isolation.
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.
The RHA MA350 has been designed to produce a linear frequency response; no part of the sound produced by the MA350 is emphasised over any other, ensuring richly detailed, well balanced sound.

However, recently, I dropped the headphones and, in a fluke hit, the ear bud separated. I contact Reid & Heath Acoustics to see if I could get them repaired. However, I was very pleasantly surprised when they offered to replace them under warranty (saying the headphones should have withstood a simple drop onto tiles). The replacements arrived yesterday and I now have both an excellent set of headphones and a very good impression of the company.
I will definitely buy more from Reid & Heath Acoustics and recommend them as a cut above the pack.
The build quality is excellent and coupled with the design it certainly suggests a pair of headphones costing much more than the £30 asking price. Straight out of the box, the sound appeared to be very bass heavy, dominating the mid and treble. I'm not sure whether burning in really does make any difference or if it's purely psychological, but after listening to music through them for the last six hours, my impression is of a very involving, warm, rich sound. The bass is prominent, but handled brilliantly and it's not to the detriment of the overall experience: there's a lot of detail in all the music I've been listening to today. And, unlike with my Shures, six hour of listening hasn't left me with aching ears!
Overall, a great pair of earbuds that delivers build quality, aesthetics and sound comparable to much more expensive headphones. Go on, treat yourself: you won't be disappointed.
I'm not too sure how isolating they are, but that doesn't matter so much to me, and the fabric covering feels great and distinctive, but I'm not convinced that they prevent tangling. The true test for me is longevity: I've gone through a variety of Creative and Sennheiser earphones in a bewilderingly short space of time, and I'd love these to last (this is a lot of money for me, the most I've ever spent on earphones). Meanwhile, while I have my Sennheiser X400s back, they're relegated to spares and I'm sticking with the RHA! Buy these and give them a chance -- you won't be disappointed.
UPDATE: Last week, one of the earbud tips fell off, all my own fault. I looked on Amazon for spares but couldn't find any, then contacted RHA via their website to ask where I could buy some. They offered to send me a set, gratis, through the post, and these arrived just a couple of days later. What service! What support! Top marks, RHA.
However, I decided to take a punt with these from RHA, a company I'd not had any products off before. The science looked sound so I was sold.
First impressions of the product were great, really neat packaging, a nice little carry case, braided cabling and quality finishes on the metal elements (which is, pretty much all the non cable parts!). I had a few other buds I have lined up to do some comparisons and the thing that struck me first was how comfortable they are compared to the relative hardness of the shures and sennheiser 300s. The acid test was how they sound, and I'm pleased to report they blew the competition away.
Without putting too finer point on things, these are single-handedly the best earphones I've used for ages. Hats off to RHA, they have an incredible product here, and at a relatively incredible price.
Update - Jan 2014, still have these, used every day since I purchased them and still delivering crisp perfect sound.
Update 2 - Feb 2015: I still have these earphones! Still going strong!
They arrived in beautiful off grey and orange packaging. The standard size ear buds fitted fine and are comfortable for prolonged listening sessions so I haven't tried the smaller or larger ones which also come with the headphones. The sound quality and noise isolation is very good, as a result they are 'loud' compared to other headphones, I run my iPhone on minimum volume when listening to music at work.
The bass response is subtle and articulated, not too overpowering, while mids and highs raise no complaints. Compared to stock iPod headphones you hear a lot more detail in the music and in the basslines and background, which is really exciting. Compared to my other headphones, Grado SR80i, they perform admirably, they are not as subtle or colourful and the bass is a little muddier, but they are a quarter of the price, have go anywhere appeal and the Grados are a really tough benchmark to compare against!
The cord has a braided cover which helps reduce tangling and gives a quality feel. This matches the aluminium buds - they feel much more robust than the standard plastic variety on most ear bud headphones.
The only negatives I can find is that the headphone lead feels a little short, it works fine if your MP3 player is in your trouser pocket, but if you have it on a desk it has to be close. The other negative is you hear yourself a lot when eating with these headphones on, I think it because the are noise isolating and brushing the braided cable across clothes is loud as well - the noise travelling directly up the lead to you ear.
These two points aside, I really recommend them, they are good value and good quality.
