You may notice I already reviewed SoundMAGIC's E10 a couple of years ago. I am not affiliated to the company, but I may be a bit of a fanboy!
So what can you expect from the much cheaper ES18? Well, a carrying pouch for a start, a set of ok silicon earbuds and, if you choose the black/red ones, a fairly subtle styling (red cable aside). Build quality feels pretty much what you'd expect for the money, and on a par with your Skull Candy's and Gumy's - they have a plastic body and cheapo feeling cable which seems to come with its own, dedicated tangle fairy.
I think I might have long ear canals; I certainly have trouble getting earphones to fit properly and get a decent seal (for the bass to work), but the combination of light, thin body and not bad earbuds means I can get a good seal and keep these in for hours.
And now to the important bit: the sound. What emanates from the ES18 is warm, deep (but not overbearing) bass, clear sibilance-free treble and just enough top end "sparkle" to stop it being too neutral. In fact, very similar to the previously mentioned E10, I'm guessing they contain the same drivers as the "family" sound is so close. If these were a much more expensive product I'd probably be a bit more picky and say the bass occasionally gets a little "flabby" (but never overwhelmingly so), while the upper range can sound a touch recessed (turning it up to eleven can help this a bit). What this does mean is you can listen to them for a long time without fatigue. It also makes women's voices much nicer to listen to, none of that shrillness that can creep in with a brighter treble.

I have no idea what some reviewers are talking about, these headphones can be very loud and with the right size of plugs they isolate perfectly well. I had them at 50% and I couldn't hear the door bell or the bangs on the door from 10ft away, the delivery guy had to call me on the phone. Bass is good too.

Now I won't pretend they are true audiophile stuff, but for 20 pounds and listening to music on your phone on the go they are quite excellent. Balanced, well-rounded sound, with no glaring omissions. I do recommend using a good equalizer and fiddling with the controls, it can really make a difference in things like perceived loudness, stereo "spaceness" and fine tuning bass.

Yeah they transmit thumps and rubs on the wires up to the earpiece (all wires do that) but you can only hear that when there's nothing playing. Wearing them upside down (wire going over the top of the ear) will help with that, and will also make it much harder for them to shake loose.

They don't mark left and right as such but they do have different stuff printed on them, so after listening to a test track for left/right channel you can tell them apart.

I like the right-angle plug, and it has a ridge you can grip when you pull it out. Another very nice bit is a sliding brace on the earpiece wires, which you can use to raise or lower the separation point.

EDIT: Good durability, still in perfect condition 1 year later. I should note I put them in the included pouch whenever I take them off, never directly in the pocket or bag.

Amazing sound for the money. Where these ES18 earphones impress is on overall balance. I was getting tired of either bass heavy or high, mid-range emphasized earphones. These earphones give a delicious balance with both bass and mid-range exceptional. Treble is still good but without the amazing detail of the most expensive earphones. The whole sound is very musical. I had bought a pair of Brainwavz M5 earphones, but they have NO bass experience in the listening and although the treble chimes nicely it is on the borderline of harshness. Build quality is good on the ES18 but not exceptional, at the price top build quality is not possible. It is easy to find a good bud for the ear and they are extremely comfortable to me. They have fairly good sound isolation and volume levels can be made loudish and without any noticeable distortion, but they do not play at ear shatteringly loud volumes. Because of the well balanced sound they will out perform many more expensive headphones, and because of their musicality will give joy. Not to be underestimated.

Received the parcel next day, they were half price. My 2 year old JVC XFX earphones packed up (One speaker went KAPUT) so after some research these came top on of every budget range earphones under £50. Anyway got them in a tidy box and with nice leather pouch also. I am hooked them up with my Sansa Clip 8GB MP3 and when I put them into my ears the sound was amazing. My MP3 plays FLAC (Loseless) and the clarity was instant, you could hear every string, mid and bass instrument ...The XFX were too heavy on bass ..not these the balance is prefect.
I will buy another..maybe the E20 range if affordable.
My advice.. Just buy them.

These IEMs are both incredibly high performing, and ridiculously cheap, two attributes very difficult to marry, but SoundMAGIC does it near flawlessly.

Your mileage may vary, as I've found It's signature to depend on which kit you pair it with, and how you have said kit configured. I can wholeheartedly recommend them nonetheless.
My initial impressions, using Spotify on a Moto G were not grand, however this was more than likely down to Spotify (and perhaps the budget hardware), however when I moved to both the iPod Nano 3G and 5G I was pleasantly surprised. On my Rotel amplifier, I was blown away. Offering an impressively broad soundstage, and a surprisingly decent attempt at isolation the ES18s punch well above their weight. Sound quality is by and large the most subjective part of an IEM, but I found It's reproduction of bass up through to upper mid-frequencies incredibly pleasing; treble was not always as impressive but more than palatable.
Frequency response is largely consistent across the board. At home I use a pair of B&O Form 2i, of whiches softer and considered tones compliment the raw and powerful signature of the SoundMAGIC

The included tips cater for the 95th percentile, and come in three sizes. They are comfortable, and suitable enough for most usage cases but you are more than welcome to swap them out for an aftermarket set should you so with.

They can, however, be suspectable to a level of microphonics, which disappears at higher volumes.

The 90° jack is a welcome inclusion.

I say this comparing the ES18 to much more expensive and well known headphones. They punch far far higher than their weight would suggest. Pick up any Sennheisers and see, I preferred them to the Momentums. When you compare them to IEMs of a similar price, or 'fashion-first' designs much more expensive, the SoundMAGICs well and truly blow them out of the water.
