Edit:- Thank you all, I got my SoundMagic ES 18 and the SQ is truly amazing. But the small size and the build quality worries me a bit. When these will stop working I'll go for the
JVC HAFX1X. They look rock solid even though they don't have a flat freq response like SoundMagic ES18 :)
Hi, I live in a third world country and spending 100$ for a decent pair of IEMs isn't really economical. Max I can spend is 10$ since I'm a student. But I run and workout regularly. Can you tell me which sub 10$ IEM has a good lifespan? I had SkullCandy Ink'd 2 and they broke within 3 months. I didn't work out with them just used them to listen music from PC. I'm not looking at 10$ IEM which will last forever but the best built one would surely last for 8-12 months since I'm really good at taking care of my earphones. I have ordered SoundMagic ES18 which is yet to arrive. I'll be jogging and working out with them. Please share your experience with them if you had them before. Thanks.
