Good VFM - Weak highs, good enough bass, fantastic soundstage, poor fit longetivity, decent build

Summary: Decent earphone for the price. Sounded terrible out of the box but after around 8-10 hours it radically changed. I compared it with the following other earphones I own : MEElectronics CC51, Brainwavz M4, Samson SR850 Reference, Roland RH-300, Panasonic HJE-355, Sennheiser HD180 and HD220. The highs are probably the weakest aspect of this phone. They really feel 'behind' the rest of the frequencies.
Summary: Strangest headphones I have seen so far. First, the balance is decent but it gets surprisingly loud at places especially at the beginning of verses when more instruments come in. Next the bass is pretty weak but very clear. The bass knob is quite difficult to turn and doesn't seem to do anything. The snare drum sound is extremely clear and well placed. I am still exploring the soundstage with different genres.
Summary: Arrived on time and nicely packaged, but.... I have an older pair of Sound Magic PL19's and they are more robust, better sounding and a lot cheaper...? The PL30's are rather flimsy and don't have the same depth of bass. They also protrude from the ear more so no good if listening lying down. They do look a bit flash but I say try the PL19's...
Summary: SoundMAGIC PL30 Earphones - White Just recieved these IEM's 4 days ago and i have found them OK, but only OK. I've owned Bose, Sennheiser,Shure IEM's in the past and they all have their good points and bad points, so I'll try to give an honest early review.I will add a review in 6 months time,once they have settled in.
Summary: I go through a few pairs of in-ear headphones a year, and I tend to stick in the 25-30 quid range. Deviating from the various Sennheiser/Sony products in this category for a change, I opted for these SoundMAGIC ones. They're really comfortable and come with a lot of different in ear bits, so finding the perfect fit is easy. However, they do fall down on sound quality - they're literally incapable of producing any bass at all, even with the bass boost switch enabled.
Summary: Bought these headphones around 3 months ago now, they were 2nd to none for about two and a half months, the the sound started to crack, through process of elinination, it was a dodgy connection between the mini-jack and the wire, get it positioned right and once again amazing sound quality. But now, no sound at all. Good quality headphones....while they are working!!
