Soundmagic E10? Piston 2.0? Other suggestions?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hello there,

long ago I owned 400$ Shure's and ... I lost them. Then I got the Apple IEMs and couldn't be happier, but the build-quality sucked and they broke. Afterwards I got some Marley Zions and I lost them too rolleyes.gif My last purchase was a Vmoda Remix and I still own them, but lent them to a family-member in hospital.

So where do I go now? And yes, I will try not to lose another pair tongue.gif

Actually I don't want to spend more than 50 EUR, only if a slightly higher price is really worth it.

I listen to progressive rock, digital hardcore, pop, jazz, classical music, ... So no preference.

Thanks!

€: What I forgot to mention. I would like something Apple-compatible with three buttons and a mic.

Donscorpio Bass Colours are another you might consider. They seem to be the same earphone as the first generation Velodyne vPulse, and I would say comparable in over all sound quality as the E10s: http://penonaudio.com/DONSCORPIO-Bass-Colour

Neither heard of the vPulse nor the Bass Colours. May I ask you people for a bit more input?

The vPulse and the Soundmagic E10 are both described (and rated) in this gigantic set of reviews: http://www.head-fi.org/t/478568/multi-iem-review-317-iems-compared-astrotec-ax-35-added-06-25-14-p-931

I'd worry that the bass on the vPulse might be too much. But that's highly subjective.

I'll have a look. But something is strange. I used your Multi-IEM-table and filtered out headsets with a max. price of 85$, and a three-button-mic. Based on the average-score it recommend the Ultimate Ears UE 600. But have a look over here. Build quality looks more like 2/5 points.

Thanks, but I just compared the of your ratings with other reviews and they often didn't match redface.gif Just an example: Logitech UE 600vi should have a 1.5 in build quality. And prices are often off too. But still, the single reviews are quite good and a great help beerchug.gif

I wanted to know the same i.e., E10 vs pistons. Which is better? I didn't get to know so I got pistons for my self, they are in burning right now. Will get a E10 or a E30(preffered) and then will post a comparison myself.

I unexpectedly got the e30 by accident and gave them a try. I'd personally choose the piston for rock and bass oriented music, and the e30 for classical and similar sounds. I haven't checked but I'd assume folk would work well. This was checked via siriusxm through a Moto X through a beyerdynamic a200p.
