Want the opinion of audiophiles here,
Want to buy an IEM in 500-600 range max..
I mostly listen to Classic Rock, Metal, little bit of pop and bollywood here and there.
Which among the three are best VFM out there.
According to the reviews I read, ES 18's take the cake but I wanna from people
here who have heard all three of them, can tell which of them are the best.Wanna buy asap.
Thnx

I have ES18, and it is good. Haven't tested the others though.
Also, you get ES18 for around 400 or even less. Check indiatimes shopping. I got mine for 380 from there.

does anybody here have reviewed both PL21 and ES18, i currently own a PL21, what should i expect from ES18..
And should i consider CX180, given it's almost thrice the price as ES18..??

I have not reviewed both of those but i can tell that there won't be much difference between PL21 and ES18 since they both use the same driver.
As for CX180, if you have the money then go for it. I have read good reviews about it.

Got the Soundmagic ES18 for Rs. 460 from Shopclues.Don't know if there is a thing like burn in or not
but I did burn it for around 15 Hrs now and is sounding like a premium iem.
It is my first inner ear monitor and I am blown away by it.
I am also having a Sennheiser pmx 60 and JBL earphones,
both of them are costlier than this but are no where near the sound quality of this.Incredible Bass it has.
Thnx guys for helping.
