ES18 from which online store for the least price?
Also between JVC and Sound Magic which one is good?
How about Sound Magic PL 10 & 13? How are these?


Sq wise both es18 & jvc fx 34 marshmallow are almost at par. sm being more inclined towards bass imo.
Pricing of JVC ~ 550 on pristinenote.com & Es18 @ 440 from hs 18 which is vfm & truly best choice imo.

Pristinenote is stocking both, if you are from mumbai visit them for demo or you can even call them up for clarification.

Guys who are from Mumbai/Pune or have got stuff delivered to Mumbai/Pune, can you pls comment on the Octroi scenario in these cities?...I intend to buy a phone and IEMs online. Do I have to pay a hefty amount as Octroi(4-5%)?...any specific parts in Mumbai, where Octroi is not chrged??(so that I can try n get it sourced to someone over there)....Any particular couriers that bypass Octroi tolls, n any that do not?...i'll then ask the seller to courier accordingly if possible...

Do reply...thanx :)

P.S: Made up my mind to buy the SM E10 :mrgreen:
Hope it lasts a couple of yrs atleast(n I hope SM's build quality is not as bad as some ppl say! :|)
I've had a Philips SE3750 (which i dint like much) and a Sennheiser PMX-90 (which I liked a lot...except that its a neck-band type)....Hope I'm not disappointed by these SMs, as I'm spending more than double of what I had initially planned(was inclined to buy JVC Marshmallows for jus 500 bucks...but going by ur reccos, I'm buying this instead)....Any last-minute suggestions, guys? :oops:

Can anyone suggest a pair for me too? Budget is 1-1.5k.

I will be mostly listening to light music, like Jo Bhi Main, Tum Ho, Kun Faya Kun from Rockstar, old songs from black and white movies and similar songs, where not much bass is needed(Not saying that won't listen to those songs at all, but less). How's SoundMAGIC PL11?

I didn't read this thread completely, sorry.

Guys I'm hearing lot of comments on the poor build of Sound Magic Earphones. Is this true for E10 as well?

Any earphone within 600-1200 will def have poor build and sound quality. I think many people here are expecting too much for such a low price. As far as I'm concerned, i wouldn't buy a 600 rs earphone anyway, because i'll use it for 3 months and get a new one, or unless i lost mine somewhere and bought it for listening over the weekend, and throw it in the dustbin the next morning after my trip. Also, its not safe to believe all comments people post. Most people who post have not even bought them and are complaining.

I and some friends ordered es18 and have been using them for months now. Trust me the build quality is very ohkish! A friend of mine has already got issues with one earpiece not working and in the rma process.

But the sound quality is at par with earphones worth almost thrice the price.

Infact looking at the build qualtiy, a friend flying to Africa for a year actually bought 3 pairs :p

you won't get ES18 in nehru place below ~550-600.best option is buying online from homeshop18(a few weeks ago it was priced ~440 but it seems like because of its increasing popularity everyone is increasing its price).

i today bought E10 from SMC International @ 1.5k..
totally awesome, and 20-30% better than ES18, which my friend bought, ES18 sounded more like my earlier PL21's, and E10's have a wider soundstage, and better instrument separation, plus more rich sound..
Plus Biflange tips provided are awesome...
Check out pics here..

Hi,

I have a similar query.

I used to own a Creative EP-830 which I have used for about 2 years now. However, one side of it has met a sad demise and that has prompted me to get a new one. I mainly listen to Rock and Metal so I want a earphone good mids and decent bass (The Creative EP-830 handled the mids very well). Will the E-10 be good enough for this?

Anything against those creatives.. :p
BTW, i too mostly listen to metal rock, hip hop, raps etc., so E10 is serving me pretty good, bass is what i think you might not like coz it's not the "boom boom" one, but a more controlled one, mids are pretty good too..
For rock metals, i prefer my PL21 over E10 due to heavy dark toned bass i used to feel in PL21's, but E10 is also not that bad choice either, especially when those guitars sound more richer in E10's..

Edit : Also suggest some good shop for earphones in Pune. Everywhere I look online, I only see the E10M everywhere and I do not want the in build mic.

Nothing against Creative, but now that I am earning, I want to try something a little more premium.
