Here at HardwareHeaven we are always pleased to see new products from UK based companies. So we are delighted to have on our test bench today two headphones from Reid and Heath Acoustics. Reid and Heath Acoustics, RHA, are a Glasgow based firm who specialise in high specification audio products and engineer headphones to deliver a professional grade, cutting edge sound.
Today we will be taking a look at two products from the RHA range. Firstly we have their top of the line SA-850 headphones and then we’ll take a look at their in-ear MA-350 ear buds.
Packaging and Bundle
The SA-850 headphones are presented in a medium sized package, only slightly larger than the headphones themselves. The front of the package features a large clear plastic section where we can see the headphones, which are securely fixed inside. The front of the package also highlights the key features of the SA-850 headset.
Turning to the back of the package we find further information on the headset, provided in several languages, as well as some detailed technical specifications.
Provided with the SA-850 headset is a detachable cable which comes with gold plated 3.5mm connections, a standard feature on all RHA products. The cable provided with the SA-850 is a black braided fabric which measures 1.2m in length.
The MA-350 ear buds are provided in a compact package, which again features a plastic window that allows us to see the design of the headphones. Like the SA-850 the front of the MA-350 package highlights some of the key features as well as the RHA logo.
Turning the package over we find more information on the MA-350, presented in four different languages (English, French, German and Spanish). There is also a short list confirming the technical specifications of the MA-350.
Supplied with the MA-350 are a small fabric carry case and two pairs of alternate tips. In total the MA-350 is supplied with three different sizes of tips, small/medium and large.
Kingston have been known for some time now as a manufacturer of high performance memory and with their HyperX brand have added some stylish modules to their range. In more recent times we have seen them branch out into SSDs and now they are taking another leap, this time with the release of a headset. The HyperX Cloud.
