Excerpt: The discreet PL11s are pleasant in appearance and feel comfortable enough in your ears. As well as the 'phones, SoundMAGIC provides you with a carry pouch and rubberised cable wrap. An in-line clip helps to prevent the cable from flapping about or snagging.
Pros: Good bass, relatively smooth and calm sound
Cons: Could do with a little more poise and agility
Summary: Never heard of Soundmagic before? Don’t sweat it – neither had we until the sound-isolating PL11s from www.hifiheadphones.com landed on our desk. As a general rule we countenance spending disproportionately large amounts of money on headphones but the Soundmagic PL11s tip the scales at just £20 (or even less on Ebay). Surely you’re better off with the ones that come with your player? Buddy good Well, no – far from it, in fact.
