I had a chance to review these for Amazon when they first came out, and these are now the only ones I will use!

    I have slept in them as long as six hours (on my side) with total comfort.

    But how do they sound? Like sitting in a perfect seat at an orchestra! These are so sensitive, I can tell the difference between cheap CDs I imported into iTunes on my laptop, and high quality files.

    I particularly enjoy the shape of the control on the cord, the indent makes it easy and intuitive to use, you always can tell which button you are using, whether simply adjusting the sound, or answering the phone.

    I have had no problems with the other party hearing me clearly when I use them.

    Best of all, the wonderful cord never tangles.

    I don't normally "gush" over products, but these are worth talking about.

    The build quality is nice too.
    However, the fabric covered tangle resistant cord that comes with these transfers friction/impact sound to your ears very efficiently. If you tap on the cord with your finger tip it sounds like a bass drum. If your slide your finger along the cord it sounds like a snare drum. If you run with the cord moving about your apparel it will generate muted bass and snare drum sounds constantly. They have no clip to secure the cord that might help in this regard, but not enough I think.
    I have observed cord generated sound in other headphones, but never as severe as with these ones. I need to take them back as they just won't do for me using them to workout. Others using them for more static listening might totally appreciate them.

    They also come with loads of tips so they actually fit your ears properly!

Also So, the criteria: I wanted a pair of good inner noise cancelling earphones with nice highs, good mids and rich tonal bass. Also a must was a remote to equal Apple's standard in-line remote which I could operate purely on feel without looking with all the usual volume and call functions.

    After looking at earphone in the £30-60 price range and comparing specs, I plunged for RHA's MA450i in White - I was not disappointed!

    I've had these beauty's for about 2 months now and have to say they are the best pair of noise cancelling earphones I've had. Setup is a breeze with 7 fitting earbud sizes to get the perfect fit. The quality of the aluminium cones and the rubber earbuds themselves are a good solid tight fit and I can happily keep the earphones in for hours with no irritation. The only niggle I have is the 1.5m cord, its just a little too long. 1.2m would have been perfect (the standard Apple earphone length).

    Sound wise, they are uber cool. Rich bass on tracks I didn't realise had it there but not only good bass, but tonal too - I can pick out sounds and notes I didn't hear before. Mids are spot on, so are highs notes - very clear.

    Yes because these are inner noise cancelling earphones, you do get noise from when the cable in tapped/snagged etc but I've found you get that with all inner noise cancelling earphones.

    A Great Buy.

    So the sound on these earbuds is very good actually, great bass and treble.

    The problem is the earpieces disconnect very often So the sound on these earbuds is very good actually, great bass and treble.

    The problem is the earpieces disconnect very often even with careful usage.

    I'm now on my 5th pair, I wear them each day for maybe two hours. The longest I have had a pair without issue is 5 months, the shortest, 3 months. Luckily RHA replace them each time as their customer service is great, but it is abit of a joke they are in effect disposable headphones that last 3 months when they cost £40-50 quid.

    Physical issues;
    First thing I noticed with these earbuds, it takes trial and error to make sure you have the right fit for your Physical issues;
    First thing I noticed with these earbuds, it takes trial and error to make sure you have the right fit for your ears. It should be snug enough so the buds stay in your ear and that outside noises are muffled. The ear tips are easy to remove but hard to reinstall. That's actually good because it means it won't fall off in your pocket when you deploy the 'buds as you're running for the bus. The cloth covered cord seems to work OK. I don't think it is any more tangle-free than conventional cords. I do like the tactile feel of them so far. The 3-button remote is a little more difficult to operate because of it's oval shape and larger diameter as compared to the flat, slim, rectangular profile of the Apple earbud control. The length of the cord is great and the plastic alligator clip works well. I like the right-angle audio plug that connects to my iPhone. I did have to use a knife to carefully expand the hole of my iPhone case in order to accept the plug. The base of the plug is larger (fatter) than the Apple earbud plug. Some cases may have a problem with this.
    Audio quality:
    The sound was incredibly harsh in the beginning, with the 's' sounds cutting through, very distracting. It also depends a lot on the type of music or voice you are listening to. However after about 20 hours of listening, the harshness has reduced a lot. Not sure how that works out. It's quite possible some of that might be that I've just grown accustomed to it. I'm no expert audiophile, but I can usually hear differences in audio quality and these sound better than what I had. I did adjust the iPhone's EQ in Settings-->Music-->EQ to Bass Booster though for the type of podcasts and music I listen to.
    Summary:
    Coming from the original Apple earbuds, I'm pretty happy so far with this purchase and would buy again.
