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.
I would not waste your time with these..
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. I only found the olive-like foam tips to sit snuggly in the ear canals. Isolation is above average with those tips, but the sound would be darkened because of that.
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.
7 pairs of tips... amazing at the price I bought it... 37SGD (about 31USD). A pair of earhooks, which are very useful for keeping the IEMs at the back of the ear. Hard case which really protects the IEMs from damage.
Pros: Bass not too overpowering, great mids, amazing soundstage
In this review the Soundmagic PL 30 will be reviewed and compared to the Sony XB20EX. Both are around the 30 dollar mark.
Specs (according to Soundmagic)
100±3 dB at 1 KHz/mW
My initial impression of these earphones are the relative smallness of the earphones compared to the pictures of it.
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.
Summary: The build quality was rubbish and mine broke after barely 5 months of usage. The sound was not crystal clear(my sony MDR-EX57SL/B were MUCH better) and the bass overpowered some of the mid range sound. Definitely not worth the price you pay. Might be a good buy for Bass Lovers but I didnt like them at all!
Summary: I had this earphone long back, and it had awesome sound. If I was to compare a few earphones, these did provide a much more wider sound stage compared to the low end earphones, but it comes at a cost. Build is above average and definitely a you will enjoy if budget isn't your main concern. The overall response is rather flat than bassy, or brightly, which can be the only plus point. The sound on these matches Twinwoofers a little bit, so you can go with either.
Summary: i had bought this at a price tag of 900 bucks, about 2 years ago, it worked very well, it provided me with the boom boom and at times the small notes perfectly, noise cancellation wasn't that good but for 900 bucks i was more than happy. it also worked well with my rough use, at times it was dropped on a platform or was entangled in the midst of a crowd and made me think as its *DEAD*, but it still worked.
Summary: It was almost two years ago when I purchased these earphones. At that time they cost around 950 bucks! I came across these phones when I was searching for budget earphones. They received rave reviews from many respected audiophile forums. Many of them went as far as to say that they sounded better than those big brand ones which were almost thrice as costly!! So in spite of initial concerns over it being a Chinese brand, I mustered enough courage to buy it.
Summary: I just received my Sound Magic PL30!! Awesome Quality, Super Comfy, Sturdy Built! and on top of that, because of the -20 db noise cancellation, music is really clear and crisp! which makes it one of the best there is in the market. Along with the headphones, the box contains 6 pairs of great quality silicon tips, one pair of behind-the-year fit and one pouch!
