Latest RHA products use unique airflow design
British headphone specialist RHA announced earlier this week the upcoming launch of two premium in-ear headphones. The MA750i and the MA600i have a three-button remote and microphone, compatible with Apple devices. RHA describes their headphones as having a 'aerophonic design', meaning that it is designed to allow air flowing from the driver to be less obstructed than traditional headphones shapes, to encourage a smoother sound. The MA750i has a handmade 560.1 driver, and contains 303F-grade stainless steel in its construction. Aircraft grade aluminum is used for MA600i, with a 320.1 driver. Complete with a carrying case and ear tip selection as well as a three-year warranty, the MA750i and MA600i are to be available in the US market August 28, and will be priced at $130 and $90 respectively.
