A nice step up from the 450i
Last year I had bought the 450i and was very pleased with the sound quality for the price. This year I decided to give the 600i a Last year I had bought the 450i and was very pleased with the sound quality for the price. This year I decided to give the 600i a go seeing as how they use a new driver but also a much better cable than the 450i.
The 600i feels very solid yet lightweight. The aluminum remote and right angle connector gives the unit a nice sophisticated look and the cable feels quite durable and not tangle prone like the 450i was. This new cable allows the buds to be worn over the ear or straight in very easily and can be easily managed. The remote is well built and nothing feels loose during use.
The sound quality is very nice, especially those who like to have their music sound lively and with plenty of bass kick without sacrificing much in the mids and treble. Out of the box it can sound a bit heavy handed in the bass department and a bit muffled top end but breaking them in helped solve that issue. Audio purists will have to look elsewhere as these are far from neutral. …

Super value, excellent sound, best under $100 I have heard!!

Very, very hard to pick the right one. Let's clarify some things. If you are simply wanting to listen to music and have the $, get the Bowers and Wilkins C5. If you are wanting the best workout headset, get the Bose iPhone units, they are outstanding for biking and treadmill workouts. If you want a set for great quality sound and be an all purpose unit to use everyday, the RHA MA600i is it. Period. Very good sound, very solid built, great warranty (three years), great packaging, great carrying case. If you can ONLY afford ONE headset, get this one. …

The Sound Of The '80s...At 21st Century Prices
The build quality seemed excellent, so I was hoping the sound quality would be similarly excellent.
There's a goodly The build quality seemed excellent, so I was hoping the sound quality would be similarly excellent.
There's a goodly amount of bass - although not enough deep bass - and plenty of extreme, shrill midrange. Unfortunately there's insufficient treble extension. The end result is a really unpleasant listen, that makes everything sound like a late '80s Bananarama record, all slappy drums with no low end and an ear-splitting midrange. In spite of the hot high-end the treble seems curiously muted, which is a losing combination - shrill yet muffled.
I would have returned them but managed to somehow lose them for a couple of months. When I finally found them again it was too late.
Crazily enough, based on strong reviews I purchased RHA's better-reviewed MA750i earbuds to replace them, and was pleasantly surprised to discover they have none of the 600i's shortcomings. They offer strong, deep bass performance, a balanced midrange and reasonable treble extension, although at fairly reduced levels. Still, they're an extremely pleasant listen and might be the best earbuds you can buy in this price class. I've had them for months and they've held up well so far, fingers crossed. …

Great value, sound and build quality
These are some great earphones! First I had some B&W C5's which I absolutely loved however, the build quality on them is questiona These are some great earphones! First I had some B&W C5's which I absolutely loved however, the build quality on them is questionable and after a while the in-line remote didn't function properly. The volume buttons worked intermittently but the pay/pause button worked as it should have.
This prompted me to explore other manufactures and stumbled upon RHA which I'm glad that I did. I bought this ma600i model first because of the simplicity even thought I favor the higher specs of the ma750i. I used the ma600i for a week and they sound awesome however, the break-in period is CRUCIAL for these because symbolance is a huge problem with them without break in properly. (what I'm referring to as symbolance is where the higher frequencies distort and somewhat sounds like someone hit a cymbal and just let it ring without dampening the sound in any kind of way).
Curiosity got the best of me so I returned them to try out the ma750i's and I will honestly say that I like the 600i's better because the fit is a lot better for me since I have smaller ears and the loop that is built in with the 750i is just too big to fit snug around my ear. Secondly the 750i driver size is too big for my ear as well which leads to the stainless steel metal sitting directly on my ear surround which is not very comfortable. Also with the all of the ear tips that the 750i comes with the only ones that work for me are the tips installed from the manufacture. The foam ones with the 750i are too big and are uncomfortable and I enjoyed the double flange from the 600i packaging better but not over the standard medium ear tips.
The ma600i has a better bass response in my opinion than the 750i but the 750i has a better all around slightly cleaner sound right out of the box so once the break in is complete I believe the 750i will sound a bit better. However, the 600i sounds TEN TIMES BETTER once they are broken in completely and I can't stress that enough!!! At this point I'm going to return the ma750i's and repurchase the ma600i because I love the look of the cable, the 90 degree bend on the jack, and the simplistic design of the driver which again is a much better fit for someone like me with smaller ears and ear canals.
Oh and if your a biggie on portability I love the size and feel of the 600i carrying case because it can fit in a pocket and doesn't have a large footprint at all plus the case is somewhat hard. The 750i has a much larger case and frankly I can't stand using the case after my experience with the 600i previously.
Hope this review helps anyone who was in my same situation but I really can say that either model is completely worth the money especially when you consider how much I spent on the B&W's in the first place. I will admit that the B&W C5 sound is more full and has more depth across all frequencies than the RHA's but for the price difference there is no comparison. Can't go wrong with the 3 year warranty either for the RHA. …

Great Headphones at a Great Price
I bought these as the first set of non-Apple headphones I've used since I bought my first iPhone. I did a lot of investigation as I bought these as the first set of non-Apple headphones I've used since I bought my first iPhone. I did a lot of investigation as I wanted quality but didn't want to pay a huge premium for it and these are great headphones and totally worth every penny. They have a stylish design, fit very comfortably and work really well with my iPhone using the remote control. A great purchase. …
