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
I got the orange and grey color scheme. It looks quite simple, and cheap. But for $15 what do you expect? 8/10 I guess
Build quality is average. The earpiece split open after 4 months of use but what do you expect with its price? Cable is a little stiff and cheap too. The Y-splitter is tiny but does its job and the jack is solidly built. Maybe 7/10 for build quality
Now for the SOUND QUALITY:
After burn-in. these sound absolutely great for $15! First of is the bass. The bass is quite good. Warm sounding but a little bit more than my taste. Mids are the best point of this IEM. Mids are a little forward, smooth and sweet sounding. Highs are the weakest point of this IEM. Highs are recessed, and not very good. Imaging and soundstage is average. I would say... 8/10 for sq
So that's it. Thanks for reading! :) P.S sorry that I don't have pics
