Hi,
I think the thread first page is very outdated. I need to upgrade from my current excellent IEM Sound magic ES18 at budget Rs 2000. I don't prefer bassy iem but it should be balanced. Also, I mostly watch movies, tv shows etc with earphones in mobile and laptop. Apart from that I listen to dinner causal songs and instrumental.
So please help me select an upgrade.
Thanks!

Guys my SM PL11, which I bought in Jan this year have stopped working. I am supposed to claim warranty from SnapDeal, right ?

Lol. Best of luck for that. Only few companies are providing seller warranty on SoundMagic products. Almost certainly, snap deal won't provide any warranty.!

I am also looking for a pair of IEMs for under 2k. Please suggest good ones.

Go for the SoundMagic E10. Another great but a bit more expensive choice would be the VSonic GR02.

Both are excellent in their own way. You can buy from hifinage or from their shop at amazon india. Popular offers balanced sound. Popular has the best bass quality |joker| has heard at this price range.

Whether the first post is updated correctly, coz I need a good 3.5 mm earphones under 500..

Well the prices in the list are extremely less than what you will actually find in the market..
The ES18 mentioned as 450 in the list is costing somewhere around 630 now..

If you can increase your budget by just rs.50-100, then you should surely go for Sennheiser mx170.. Decent sound and awsome base.. plus you get a 2 year warranty, so if anything goes wrong, the customer care representatives replace it hand to hand(Got mine replaced after 1.5 years..:-D) and got another one 3 weeks back for my friend as well..
Either Mx 170 or ES18..

I'm planning to get this one:
Sennheiser HD 180 - Sennheiser: Flipkart.com

How's it? Any other better options? Please don't suggest Tekfusion Twinwoofer

The sound quality and bass is pretty decent but the volume is awfully low..

Any opinion/reviews on Sennheiser MX 375?
I am getting it a price of Rs. 750

MX 375 for 750!! What sorcery?? they are priced at some 3.5 K as far as i remember..

need good build quality earphone with sound quality as good as soundmagic pl21.
please don't suggest es18, as i need, one with good build quality.
Can spend upto 800rs.

I am currently using ES18 with ipod touch 4G. i am happy with its performance but thinking about upgrading. something more bassy [i'm n00b in music/audio stuff. bass is all i understand and like]. i think ES18 is enough but hunger for more bass is growing day by day

i am thinking about senn CX180, does it worth upgrading over ES18 ?? considering i am bass lover?

my budget is 1.5k

Cx 180, NO NO NO!! go for the mx 170..

But you forgot to notice that i asked this question on 04-05-2013. :lol:

In between this timegap, i bought ES18 - used it - lost it - and finally settled with Lenovo P165.

But i appreciate your help. :)

My bad!!:blush: Saw the thread in the "Whats New" category and just thought i'l share the experience.. Did you get a chance to do a comparison between mx170 and es18, sound quality, bass and noise cancellation wise??
