SoundMagic PL11 or ES18 or any other suggestions around 600Rs

SM PL11 is currently retailing at 500 on amazon wheres ES18 is 650.
Very tight budget so I'm wondering if paying extra for ES18 worth it?

Any other suggestions at this price bracket are also welcome

ES18 has excellent sound quality but the build quality is not... My old ES18 has wires that are torn out.
 
Dont buy es18 . i bought it after some guy in this forum recommended it to me. After a month the left side went dead.

Just buy a Sony,JBL or Creative. Soundmagic and other Chinese brands have inconsistent build quality. Some ppl praise it some people hate it. U need to be lucky with these products.

u should have tried to get a replacement. es18 is pretty good, i am using 1 for more than a year, no issues. and sound quality is decent for what u pay for, the upper / higher freq is a bit fuzzy, but overall good bassy sound quality.
 
I dont think replacement applies for products which are used for a month a more. Flipkart will just tell us to comtact the manufacturers

ES18 is very good been using one for a year now you can also try the ES18S to be honest Sound Magic has really good value for money products I am actually surprised how well they are doing in terms of performance than my old Skull Candy or Sennheiser earphones!

I had got my es18 in august 2012 & used it till Oct. 2013. It was lying idle till Feb 2014 when I gave it to my cousin who is still using it for his daily commute.

If used & taken care properly it can last long.

OR you can check cowon em1 @ 675 or piston 2 [chocolate smell] if found from genuine source.
