Review: RHA MA450i Noise-Isolating Aluminum In-Ear Headphone (with Remote and Microphone)

I was excited to test this pair of RHA MA450i earphones because I’ve heard good things about the brand. When I opened the box and inspected the materials used, I was immediately impressed and thought it’s well-built.

*Note: RHA MA450i was made for Apple devices (iPhone, iPod and iPad), but I mostly used it with my Android device. I connected it to my bro’s iPod and my review remains the same, except for the remote control features.

The earphones are said to be made from aircraft grade solid aluminum, ensuring maximum strength and durability. I actually like the feel of the earphones. They look (and feel) like they’re going to endure a lot of stress, which is great for those who love the outdoors or traveling. Though it’s made of aluminum and slightly “heavier” than other earphones, you’ll barely notice the difference.

Review: Ye!! Energy Xtreme Power Bank

With my work as a social media manager and a blogger who maintains my own social media accounts, my mobile phone is one of the things I always bring with me whenever I go out, most especially when I travel. It’s been a struggle for me in the past few months because my Samsung Galaxy SIII’s battery just won’t keep up with my online activities, so I was in the market for my own power bank. I initially wanted something with a capacity of over 10,000 mAh, but thankfully, I found something that was just right. I now have a new constant companion – my Ye!! Energy Xtreme Power Bank.

Built For The Outdoors

At first glance, I was impressed by how rugged or durable this power bank looks like. Upon reading the features, I found out its rubberized exterior is impact, splash and dust resistant. How cool is that?! It’s built for those who love the outdoors, that’s why. :)

There’s even a built-in carabineer loop so you can attach this to your backpack, bag or belt for easier access. I have not yet tested how it can endure hanging outside my backpack while I travel, but it looks like it can handle the stress. :)

Urbanears Kransen in Coral

To be honest, when I was checking out the box of these earphones, I thought it was just like other earphones. As soon as I opened the box and saw the ear buds, I got curious.

Urbanears Kransen's angled ear buds for maximum comfort

At first, I was weirded out by the angled ear buds. I made sure to use the correct one for the right ear ’cause I’m particularly sensitive when it comes to using in-ear earphones like this. I wasn’t sure how they’ll fit me, but I was surprised that they were comfortable. In fact, I had it on for more than 30 minutes, and my ears didn’t hurt at all. Usually, I can only go for 15 minutes or so before I feel soreness or pain in my ears, but this time, I didn’t feel anything but comfort. :)
