Summary: So this is my first ever review. Enjoy!
I got my es18's for about $15 in my local store on December last year and I've been enjoying them since. SO let's start!
PACKAGING AND ACCESSORIES:
Packaging is pretty decent for a $15 IEM. It includes 3 eartip sizes(small, medium and large) and a leather-ish carrying pouch that's a little bit too large. Overall, 10/10. Pretty good value for $15! :D
I got the orange and grey color scheme.
Summary: SoundMAGIC ES18- Magic Sound, Magic Price
In this world, there are people who are willing to spend a lot to make sure they enjoy the incredible details and natural vocals drove by their high-end audio equipments. On the other hand, there are also people who just want to listen to music with a decent earphone that cost affordably. No doubt, the SoundMAGIC ES18 falls on this category.
First of all, I would like to thank Li Yan for providing a sample of SoundMAGIC ES18.
Pros: Price is the main factor; did great on mids and lows
Summary: This is my first review in the past year of getting in to audio as a hobby. My roots started last year around April when I purchased the SoundMAGIC PL11. I heard my father's various Bose products, which introduced me to the world of high(er)-end audio equipment. Directly comparing The PL11 to the Bose Triport made me realize that my $16 PL11 were nearly as good as my father's $130 Triport, and it lead me to Head-Fi.
Pros: Price, audio quality
Cons: None at this price point. Sacrificed cord/housing quality for better drivers at a cheaper price point.
Summary: amazing delivery thanks India post .i got the product before the estimate delivery date . The product is just amazing i saw some bad reviews here by analyzing that reviews i understand that they are comparing soundmagic es18 with other high range products .they are correct its not better than high range products but the price range is also different. under 1K the best option is soundmagic. don't hesitate go for it .
First of all the sound quality is amazing. Bass is awesome

Summary: I'm really confused about these pair of IEMs. First of all the sound quality is amazing. Bass is awesome. But I find the design uncomfortable, may be a problem with me only, but the earphones are not usable for long times. But for sound quality I give it a 5 star.
Summary: First thing, I got this earphones less than 2 days for normal delivery option, thanks to seller's amazing service. And about the product I should say it is a fair product with good sound clarity for given price. Sound is getting muffled when i turn the wire sometimes, hope it will not end up damaging earphone. There is no mic to it which is disappointing a bit as it cost 600 they should have included mic. There are extra ear buds which is very good.
Summary: great!!! it is better than wht i expected good bass and trebble is a lit bit low, i am a little bit dissapointed because i bought it for rs 699. nut now the price is just rs 585. u cant get better headphone for this price......
