My SoundMAGIC E30s arrived today.  My first impression was... meh.  It turns out they needed the right tips.  For me, the large clear UE tips work perfectly - allowing for a tight seal and better bass response.  OK, these things are in no way close to the awesomeness of the UM3X, but they're in the right area.  Warm, slightly mid-centric.  Not as forward and intimate as the UM3X.  Vocals and guitar do well with them.  During busy sections of music the separation is not nearly as good as the UM3X.  The bottom line, for rock and funk these things are great for <$40.  I'm listening to Rush right now and having more fun than my SE535s.  Something is seriously wrong here!

 

Still... I'm looking for the next "cheap-o-UM3X."  My Brainwavz M2s should be arriving soon.  I'm holding hope.


I got a bit of a UM3X-ish feel from the UE 600 / SuperFi 5. It's too bad UE isn't having more of those $55-65 sales because $100 is way too much. M2 is a good choice as well.. curious as to whether you will like them better than the E30.

I may snag a pair of UE 600s if they do another amazing sale on them.  I'll let you know my thoughts on the M2 shortly.

I don't know what the CX300-II sounds like but the Hippo 10 EB is fantastic. Not sure what it costs nowadays but for a while it was <$40 which is an amazing deal for balanced sound. Cable noise is its biggest flaw but otherwise very competent.

Used to be on amazon goldbox every couple of weeks. Guessing they were just clearing out the pre-logitech packaging. They can be worn cord-down without issue - the nozzles are pretty long so the stems don't get in the way.

Hello,

 

Can anyone tell me if the MEElectronics are great/okay for hip hop songs, does it have great bass? Because I just got the Klipsch Pro media one's and they barely had any bass.

 

Thank you

They have quite a few models that are all different. If you just want bass try an M9. It's cheap enough and the bass goes low and hits hard.

Thanks very much for all the reviews - your review of the GR07 persuaded me to purchase the and I'm loving them. I appreciate all your hard work.
