SoundMAGIC ES18. Good sound for a good price.

Posted

Pros: sound, good mids, price, value

Cons: not that solid build quality, highs

So this is my first ever review. Enjoy!         I got my es18's for about $15 in my local store on December last year and I've been enjoying them since. SO let's start!   PACKAGING AND ACCESSORIES:     Packaging is pretty decent for a $15 IEM. It includes 3 eartip sizes(small, medium and large) and a leather-ish carrying pouch that's a little bit too large. Overall, 10/10. Pretty good value for $15! :D   LOOKS:     I got the orange and grey color scheme. It looks quite simple, and cheap.

SoundMAGIC ES18- Magic Sound, Magic Price

Pros: Price is the main factor; did great on mids and lows

Cons: Soundstage, recessed highs

SoundMAGIC ES18 In-Ear Headphones

Pros: Price, audio quality

Cons: None at this price point. Sacrificed cord/housing quality for better drivers at a cheaper price point.

This is my first review in the past year of getting in to audio as a hobby. My roots started last year around April when I purchased the SoundMAGIC PL11. I heard my father's various Bose products, which introduced me to the world of high(er)-end audio equipment. Directly comparing The PL11 to the Bose Triport made me realize that my $16 PL11 were nearly as good as my father's $130 Triport, and it lead me to Head-Fi.   The SoundMAGIC ES18 use the same drivers used in the higher end E10. This is a budget-minded 'phone, sacrificing build quality to bring a higher quality sound to the lower income crowd, and they did a marvelous job of doing so. The 'phones aren't as...
