Natalie tested out the RHA MA450i Noise Isolating In-ear Headphones with Mic and here’s what she had to say about them:
These noise isolating earphones with remote and microphone are a great accessory to keep in your bag when you’re traveling – and even when you’re not! They give really great sound – crystal clear with a nice, deep bass. They come with 12 replaceable ear tips so you can find the size that’s right for you. That’s awesome – but it’s a bit tricky to change them. However, once you find the size that’s right for you, they’ll fit great. I had to use the smallest ones and I loved how securely they fit in my ears without falling out. I tried them out on a recent flight from LAX to YYZ and the noise isolating functionality worked well. There were a lot of talkers on my flight and since it was a red-eye, I just wanted to catch some shut-eye. While the earphones didn’t entirely eliminate the noise, they blocked out enough of it that I was able to sleep. Since noise-canceling headphones are so big, it’s nice to have an earphone option that’s small enough to fit in your pocket. I won’t travel without these again!
