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: I am a sound engineer.I tested the headphone for frequency response ( till 16000 hz) and fouund it almost linear at constant db of input with extra low frequency (bass)punch.which is the best thing about the headphones. This means it produce exactly what the music want you to listen with extra base.
Summary: THe earphone has an excellent noise cancellation and overall balance of everything. It comes with a pouch for keepsafe. The best earphone anyone can probably get at this price range. It is comparable to almost all and even better than many other earphones which cost around INR 900-1000. One more satisfying thing is the design at the connector. It is not straight but at right angle so that there is no strain on the wires while you plug in/out.
Summary: Great Bass and treble. Clarity of sound is too good. Amazing experience. Better than Skullcandy DUDZ-003 with almost similar price. And even better than creative ep-630 when it comes to sound clarity.
Summary: Oh wow Product Is awesome, I think sony is the best for sound quality, but now sony have to competition with SoundMagic, Really Noise isolation, when train pass through station i have no noise problem, just enjoying my Music
