Cooler Master MH703 Review (Page 2 of 4)

Page 2 - Physical Look - Hardware

The Cooler Master MH703 are nice and small, featuring a brushed aluminum exterior. The majority of the earbuds is a dark silver color and it is the only color that the MH703s come in. Right in the middle of each earbud is a bit of black rubber that connects to the cable. The rubber is quite hard ensuring good build quality. This is pretty important for where the cable connects as it can easily break in this area. The hard rubber will ensure everything stays connected and where it should be. At the back end, there is a bit of plastic jutting out. Right on the back of the earbuds is the minimalist Cooler Master logo with a glossy finish. I really appreciate the small design of the earphones and their lightweightness. It meant I had no doubt that these would stay in my ear. They come in at 14.5g, which is pretty light, especially compared to the larger Tesoro A3 Tuned In-Ear Pro earphones I reviewed last year. This weight includes the cable, and so without the cable they come in at 6.65g. These are seriously light and I have no doubt they will stay in my ears.

Without the sleeves, you can get a better idea of how big the earphones actually are. The brushed aluminum continues on throughout the entirety of the earbud as pictured above. Inside of the earbuds is where the real magic happens. The drivers are 10mm in diameter with a frequency response of 20 to 20000 Hz. The impedance come in at 16 ohms. The specifications are quite standard, but we will have to see how they perform in real life on the next page. The Cooler Master MH703 earbuds also feature an omni-directional microphone with a frequency response of 100 to 1000 Hz. We will also be testing the microphone on the next page. There is a small in-line control box to have some basic controls over music and phone calls, which is a nice addition to the earphones.

The Cooler Master MH703 comes with a few different accessories. There are three different sized silicone ear tips, which should fit anyone's ear. I generally opt for the smallest one as they sit the most comfortably. Otherwise, since you are also supposed to be able to game with these earphones, there is also a splitter cable to split the normal 3.5 mm audio connector into an audio and microphone connector. As well, all the cabling is braided, but unfortunately they are pretty prone to tangling. The normal 3.5 mm audio jack connector is a right angle connector and supported by a substantial amount of hard rubber to ensure nothing breaks. All the connectors are gold plated. Overall, the Cooler Master MH703 is built well and has some good specifications. We will have to see how it performs on the next page.
