Question about the Soundmagic E10s

  1. mugabuga
    I just got my first pair of decent headphones, the Soundmagic E10s after I they were recommended here. I bought them because of their reputation for good bass while still retaining a clear sound. However, it seems like there's no bass at all unless I use the bass boost effect on my Nexus 4 or iPod Nano, after which they sound quite a bit better. Is this normal for these headphones?

    They won't sound incredibly bassy, E10 have a slightly forward low end but nothing to extreme. Also double check you're getting a good seal by trying all the provided tips. If the seals good that's it, you're doing it right!

    If you would like to boost the bass further I can recommend a FiiO E5 or E6 amp for about $25 both have bass boost EQ and E10 perform well with either.

    Sorry if this is a dumb question, but what's the difference between the effects I would get from the FiiO E6 versus software tweaks on my phone to get more bass?

    You'd be giving the E10 more power.

    Have a look at some of the apps, such as "equalizer" "Sonic Max Pro", see if they are enough for you.
