New Head-Fier
Jun 28, 2013
hi I everyone, happy to be a member of headfi,I liked soundmagic e10, unfortunately lost them and I have ordered soundmagic e10s, they are good but volume is low compared to e10, my source of music is cowon I audio e3, ipod shuffle.kindly suggest some ear buds under 100 dollars with similar soundsignature to e10, I live in india so have limited brands availability. I have read good reviews about brainwavz m2 brainwavz m1, ,brainwavz s1,sennheiser momentum in ears,bose ie2, shure se 215,klipsch image s4,solo please suggest new one among them. thanks in advance

The newer E10 and E10S models have a higher impedance now (something like 46 ohm instead of 16 ohm) so will sound less loud.
We've just got the Fidue A73 here in the last few minutes and they're another one to consider - I saw them on
Edit - they're a little bit brighter that the E10 but not much. Similar tuning with elevated bass/treble but with a little more midrange coming through I think. It's very clear. Great soundstage and imaging - a good upgrade if you fancy it.
We'll have the A73 on our site very shortly -
- It should be sitting next to the A71 when a page is created soon.

I don't know about hifinage, I've never been to India and don't know the currency, so used that as a rough guide as to pricing in Rupees - I'm not recommending that specific outlet.

The Fiio X1 is good which is 7,500 Rupees on Amazon in india - or the XDuoo X2 which is more like 4000 - I've not tried it but it seems to have good sound quality judging from reviews.

Even I was considering fiio x1. .costing around 7000 rs, in just a month back some one sold sony nwz a 17 for 12000rs I missed again good about sansa clip plus..I have heard great things about it really that great?

For the price, the Sansa Clip+ is an excellent mp3 player. However, it may not provide much (if any) more volume with your IEMs. The FiiO X1 has more power output. Fiio X3 even more if you can afford it.
