i really want the r1
but since i saw a review that the e30 is really good for running i dont know what to pick up...
So guys can you tell me which one has better sound and better fit?
I've got a pair of white Soundmagic e30s that I've used one time that I can give you for cheap if you want to try them.
I ordered the R1s and I'll be able to compare them to my black e30s that I use daily at the gym.
The R1 just came out so not many people have it yet. The first batch was shipped out today for everyone that pre-ordered. You will see reviews/impressions coming up in near future.
SoundMagic e30 is amazing. The best IEM you can get for under $50 for now. It has natural sound with amazing tonal quality. Has a hint of warmness and a touch of added bass. It also has a good soundstage, about 75% of a Sennheiser IE8 imo.
I think R1 could be simliar to e30, but better soundstage and bass. I will let you know as I ordered one, and I already have e30 on me.
Give me few days guys,,,,got my E30 replaced n also got my new R1.
From initial impressions E30 is clear winner as far as Mids n Highs are concerned.
R1 wins in Bass department. It has depth n more capacity to handle boomy songs. E30 has more punchy bass but small nozzle prevents to get proper bass(may b my ears r too big for E30)
Soundstage of E30 feels really tiny after listening to R1.
I'm waiting for both the earphones to burn-in. Will post in depth review later.
