SoundMAGIC - one to watch for the future.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: SoundMAGIC E10 Earphones - Silver/Black (Electronics)
I bought a pair of E10's to replace a pair of CX300 MK2's, which had failed after 3 years of pretty constant use. Initial impressions of the E10's were much better bass control, but a slight sibilance to vocals. A bit of equalizer adjustment tamed the sibilance issue, and I was quite happily using them, until after just 2 months one of the ear pieces came apart (as other reviewers have said, the glued joint between the two sections had failed).
My first experience of returning a product to Amazon was an absolute breeze, they really are excellent, and another pair of E10's were on their way to me the same day.
The second pair of E10's had me questioning SoundMAGIC's production methods. Visually, they had a slightly different cable, but sonically, they were completely different. The sibilance issue of the first pair was non-existent, and the bass was far louder than the first pair. I was really happy with this second pair, they were the best earphones I'd ever used, right up until the point they fell apart after just one months use!
So, I'd certainly bear SoundMAGIC in mind in future, but they still seem to have a few issues at the moment.
I tried a pair of JVC HA-FX1X after these, don't go there, trust me. But I'm now using a pair of RHA MA-350's, and they really are excellent, I should have bought them in the first place.

Aw diddums, I've upset a few fan-boys by telling the truth about their favorite earphones! Well to be honest, you can buy a pair of Panasonic's for less than a tenner, that totally blow these out of the water, and last longer. My daughter permanently borrowed those, so I tried a pair of Sony's (available on amazon, but Argos sell them for less than £20), and they're even better. Don't fall for the hype, there's a great headphone review site called golden ears, they've measured the Panasonic's and the Sony's, but funnily enough not the Soundmagic's. Also, use the amazon customer ratings to your advantage, search for earphones and then select department, and sort by average customer rating. Ignore any 5* reviews that have had less than 10 votes.
