Review of Soundmagic PL30 + Comparison with Sony XB20EX


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.

**** is *****


Pros: Cheap

Cons: fall apart and fail quickly

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.

Great IEM with amazing value


Pros: Bass not too overpowering, great mids, amazing soundstage

Cons: Build quality, prone to hiss

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.

The shirt clip attached to the IEM also prevents microphonics.   Design: Really a small IEM, not like the exceedingly large Altec Lansing UHP336. The design is not the conventional straight barrel I usually see, but...

A Long Overdue review


Pros: Quit neutral, very good soundstage

Cons: A bit fragile

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. 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. The cords tangle quit easily such that I had to separate them almost every time, but this problem improved after more than a while.   Sound: The soundstage is wide and airy, which is probably is the most noticeable aspect and one of...
