  • Summary: Miscellaneous: They are exceptionally comfortable and light; when I wear them I sometimes forget they are in my ears. The quantity of accessories is more than enough, though the quality of which is not so. The tips seemed poorly made, and one of the bi-flanges even has some defect.
  • Pros: Quit neutral, very good soundstage
  • Cons: A bit fragile

  • Summary: Packaging: Packaging is nice... great for display. Opening the flap in the front shows the frequency of these IEMs, but not representative of what you would hear. I think the package should make a good gift for your loved ones.   Content: 7 pairs of tips... amazing at the price I bought it...
  • Pros: Bass not too overpowering, great mids, amazing soundstage
  • Cons: Build quality, prone to hiss

  • Summary: These and the PL50 are terrible quality buds, I went through both of them in less than 8 months. Both times they failed they left me in an awkward position where I really needed earbuds for working. Thus I would rate these as highly undesirable as I prize reliability and quality most.
  • Pros: Cheap
  • Cons: fall apart and fail quickly

  • Pros: Great Value Great Sound Quality Great Amount of Accessories Decent Build Quality
  • Cons: The Bass Knob is more of a Gimmick. The cable is flimsy. The clip is annoying. The tips dont fit well. Isolation using stock earbuds arent veru good.

SoundMagic PL30 In-ears

31 August 2009
  • Summary: These earphones provide a good amount of bang for the buck even though they are ridiculously cheap. At $25 I am surprised you can even make a set of in-ears that have the qualities that the PL30s have.
  • Pros: Small, Amazing value, Provides you with the advantage of IEMs at a very fair cost, Well built, price considered, Brilliant bundle, Attractive design, Handles microphonic noise well
  • Cons: Not nearly as good sounding as more expensive in-ears

  • Pros: Very cheap, bass response adjustment dial, replaceable earphone tips, good sound quality
  • Cons: Hard to keep clean, bass isn't very punchy, noise isolation could be better

SoundMagic PL21 and PL 30 Earphones

  • Excerpt: Soundmagic is one of those “made in China and we’re proud of it” brands, which is actually different from your regular “Made in China” brands. The company is called Shenzhen Soundmagic technology, and the global coverage on this set of in-ears is nothing less than superlative.

  • Summary: Эти наушники обладают хорошей динамикой, они весьма чувствительны к тихим звукам. Передача реверберации зала хорошая. Ощущения от передачи сцены положительные. В целом, подача естественная, живая. КОНСТРУКЦИЯ Еще один китайский продукт. Эти наушники оставили о себе приятное ощущение.
