  • Summary: The HP100 has the best and most unusual bass I've ever heard, rivaled by only the ATH M50. The treble is strong and highly detailed, but still only borderline irritating on the very worst tracks I have. The mids get a lot of their clarity from the detailed treble, and if anything, have a slight flavor of emphasis around 800-900 hz, giving it a lighter sound than the M50 or Senn Amperior, for example.

  • Summary: Great quality sound. Reviews complain about appearance being old fashioned. If it isn't broken don't fix it.

A good buy for a year until you need to replace them.

  • Summary: It's a real shame I have to give these headphones a two star rating since they are perfect in every way... apart for build quality. I have consistently had the left hand overhead clamp break on two separate models, after only one year of use. This also doesn't seem to have been rectified in the HP150's either since I have seen a review detailing my exact same issue with these headphones. TL;DR Don't buy them unless you have more money than sense.

Amazing

  • Summary: These headphones are really comfortable and the quality of the audio are amazing. Bad thing is the cable being 1.2m. For me this bothers me when i am at home listening to music from my computer. The cable is quite hard to stretch out being coiled and you may find this may drag you down slightly. Overall these headphones are very good.

HP100

R. husbands, Amazon

  • Summary: I adore these. Easily the best value headphones I have heard around this price. In my opinion they destroy Sennheiser HD558s which I also own. Extremely detailed, extremely comfortable and a wide soundstage for a closed back headphone. Versatile, but do rather punish poor source material and poor amplification, so will always be slightly niche. Fold up a bit easily, but's that's only a tiny gripe. The sort of cult product that owners feel passionately about.

SoundMagic HP100 Closed Back Headphones

Phil Lord, Advance MP3 players
13 August 2013
  • Summary: Having owned a pair of Soundmagic E-10's for a year it was a logical conclusion to consider the HP100's as a replacement for some ageing Beyer's. The HP-100's are an extension of the E-10's with all their positive attributes and more - with a controlled deeper bass - but not too deep along the lines of the Beats range. The sound being very precise and detailed in the upper range was exactly what I wanted and I chose the HP100's above the B&W P3's and P5's and AKG K550's.
