The SoundMagic E30 come in one of the best packaging jobs I've ever seen. This is before I'm even able to see the packaging mind you. The E30 came securely wrapped with a brown cardboard box wrapped tightly around the actual package with either end having a label telling the user to fax a picture to SoundMagic if it had been tampered with or opened.
Pros: Pros: Sound is phenomenal for the price, packaging is great.
Cons: Cons: Build quality is lacking, comfort is an issue, slight microphonics
Summary: These earphones are good reliable neutral sounding performers. I use them on my ipod and they convey the music very well indeed. Occasionally, a song my benefit from some bass reduction but that is the exception rather than the rule. My main headphones are AKG 550 and these do not let themselves down in comparison. Highly recommended. Very good value. They lose a star as they did not come with foam ear buds.
Summary: i bought these to replace the ear phones that come with g note after reading many reviews online these came out tops on sound quality fro the budget i had. i thought they would take some getting used to because of the design being over the ear only but because of how light they are. you can pop them in and forget they are in your ear. the only bad points would be the build quality they do look cheap but the sound quality more than makes up for that.
Summary: I had owned P11s and was happy with them but eventually cut a wire with a zip after two years. Bought these due to reviews suggesting they are good for the gym. For gym use I am really happy with them (been using them for a month) - I do use the ear runners but I also wear glasses so I am used to the feeling. I also run the wires from the front. I like that I can remove the buds for a minute or two to chat but they are still there over my ear.
Summary: After careful research I opted for these, went for the colour due to my sporting affiliation. I use these about 4 hours a day during my commute, I travel by bus and they cut out a huge amount of noise. The silicones that come with these are adequate but I have put Comply foam buds on and the comfort and hold is excellent.
These are a great set of in the gym earphones/additional review 26.09.13

Summary: I was hunting for a set of in the ear headphones that gave great sound and stayed put in the ear whilst doing a good work out in the gym. I have had these for over a year now and the sound is of very high quality, especially when you consider the price range. I use them in the gym linked with a little Sony stick MP3 tucked in a trouser pocket.
Summary: Nice sound, especially for the price. Would have liked a little more bass but otherwise great. Would rate 5*s but for me they broke after ~6months of regular use. They come with a year warranty and were replaced no questions asked, but the replacement also broke after another 4 months.
