Summary: First off, I always check reviews of any audiio equipment across multiple sites before choosing what I buy. Immediately the sound quality was in no way better than my last pair of Creative EP 630s which only cost £11. Seemed like a wasteful mark up. However I have just carried on using them. Completely broke in 5 months through regular, normal use, if the cable is jilted even slightly by the headphone jack you will lose sound in one or both headphones.
Summary: I bought these last year but didn't really use them as I had been supplied to Sennhiesser 425s for work which I also used to listen to music on my iphone whilst on the train. I started using the E30s when I was waiting for some replacement buds for the Sennhiessers. They sound ok- not amazing but not horrible. I don't feel the listening fatigue caused by hyped high frequencies which is often the case with cheap headphones.
Great sound but unfortunately they only lasted 3 months before ...

Summary: Great sound but unfortunately they only lasted 3 months before one of earphones broke. This is the second pair that I have bought and the same thing happened to them as well. Amazon don't offer a guarantee. I have sent the seller an email but they have yet to respond and I don't expect they will. It's a shame because the sound from them is great but unfortunately their Lastnight power is not .
Summary: These were bought to replace my broken Sony monitor series MDR-EX310LP which appear to be discontinued. Based on reviews, and the fact that these are more expensive, I was expecting them to be at least as good, so when I tried them out I was bitterly disappointed. First impression is that the build quality seems cheap, and I found the over-the-ear format to be an unnecessary and fiddly, but that is a personal preference.
Summary: I bought these in the hope that they would be an upgrade on my Samsung earphones that came free with my Genio Touch mobile phone some years ago. Unfortunately claims of wonderful sound and extended base were incredibly inaccurate. I could bearly hear my SoundMAGIC E30 earphones on maximum volume and the audio fidelity was appalling. The sound quality was akin to a pair of tin cans with a piece of string connecting them.
Thoroughly disappointed, don't be tempted like I was...

Summary: I was using my Nokia WH701 earphones that came with my Nokia N8 phone, for everything. I assumed that they were just a cheap, low quality product bundled with said phone, so when the sound went in one side of them I decided to get onto Amazon to get some new, 'better' ones. So I made the mistake of buying these Sound-not-so-magic E30 earphones for £40.
Summary: spent ages looking for an allround good ear bud to replace my denons finaly went for these!what a mistake they do not cancel out any noise what so ever you can hear every thing and i find the sound very weak Also they come with these stupid rubber things which keep them in your ears they work but a can see myself loosing them as they come off the cable very easy Dont waist you money with these
Summary: Ich habe diese Inear als Ersatz für meine alten gekauft. Doch leider passen sie sich nicht gut an in vergleich zu den alten. Sie schirmen die Umgebungsgeräusche nicht so gut ab. Ich hatte von den alten noch die Silikonaufsätze da und mit denen ist es besser. Aber ich habe jetzt neue gekauft weil sie mich nicht überzeugten und darum war das für mich ein Fehlkauf.
