"If a whooping 3 year warranty and a plethora of accessories are in your mind, then the RHA MA390 U is the best pick in this price bracket.
But, If you want no further than an earphone with mic then you should go with the Sennheiser - CX275S
RHA - MA390 U's AEROPHONIC DESIGN VS SENNHEISER'S SECURE-FIT DESIGN
The CX 275s
As far as fit, the CX 275s feels quite secure—the earpieces are so tiny and glossy, they're almost difficult to put in at first, but once you get a good fit, they stay put.
A big boon is the inline remote of the single-button variety which is universally compatible. However, the cables are very thin and the lack of tangle-resistance is a disappointment.
TANGLE RESISTANT CABLE VS TANGLE PRONE CABLE
The E10C packs along with it seven pairs of silicone ear-tips of varying sizes, including a double-flanged pair. There's also a small carry case , a shirt clip, and a double-pin adapter to use the headset with a laptop or computerComing to the warranty, RHA - MA390 U offers a 3 years Manufacturer's Warranty where as Sennheiser - CX275S offers a warranty of 1 year
RICH BASS VS HEAVY BASS
On tracks with serious bass, the CX 275s provides ample boom, that too without distortion, even at high volumes. The CX 275s does manage to maintain a decent balance between lows and highs to some extent.
Sometimes, however, there is a strange mid to high boosting. In specific areas, the highs are so boosted that there is a strange mix of elements that stand out dramatically. The mid-range and the upper mid-range in particular are significantly recessed. While the trebles are sharp at the very top.The noise isolation is decent but not great, assuming you can get a decent seal with the 3 different sized silicone eartips.
Certain electronic percussive sounds can seem far too bright, even a bit harsh or tinny. You will find that these in-ears may get muffled in the pursuit of pumpy audio delivery.This makes it great for bass heavy music like EDM and hip-hop, but listen to something with vocals and the CX 275s disappoints. The sound isn’t particularly detailed, either. The soundstage is also not as wide as the RHA
This is not the earphone for audiophiles but for the people who enjoy the added sheen in their music.
If you are looking for a rich bass and premium looks then RHA- MA390 U is a good pick since it provides a rich, detailed sound signature with aesthetic looks.
On the other hand, SENNHEISER-CX275S has a heavier bass as compared to RHA -MA390 U and don't do as well in terms of looks.
