2.0 out of 5 stars No bass, lots of distortion, 21 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: SoundMAGIC E10 Earphones - Silver/Black (Electronics)
I bought these on the basis of other reviews and the awards they have won. I was surprised, then, at the poor quality of these headphones. It is possible that they were faulty, but I can't be absolutely certain. The main flaw with them was the almost total absence of bass in the sound - even if I adjusted the EQ settings on my iPod to boost the bass, it was just never there. On tracks with a lot of bass, I got a lot of distortion and crackling from the headphones, although the treble was fine and, overall, the headphones gave a good, clear sound. Sound isolation was not perfect - listening at high volume (probably a little higher than is sensible) other people close to me could hear, quietly, what I was listening to, so not ideal for listening on a crowded train if you don't want to annoy others. Overall, a disappointment.
