SoundMagic E30 review

E30, another emerging and top searched IEM from SoundMagic. E30 is launched as an upgrade to PL30 – a budget earphone with fun and spacious sounding, and also a preferred earphone by many customers even for now.

The outlook and feel of E30 is similar to PL30 – an on-ear type earphone, designed for the use even while working out, playing and other activities.

Accessories and Build Quality

The package comes with a pair of plastic ear guides, a pair of double-flange tips, 3 pairs of single flanged other different sized silicon tips, a carrying bag and a shirt clip and  these accessories are sufficient and quite enough to fit for different ear holes.

The build quality is good. As, I am currently using the third version of E30 which shows a good improvement in the build quality compared to the previous two versions I used (not sure about how many versions of E30 has been released).

In the newer version, the wire looks like a rope where two wires are twisted to combine them. The housings of E30 looks like a cheap plastic unlike their siblings.

There are two cheap looking silvery metals: one at the end of the connector jack and the other at the meeting of two earphone cables. Other than this, the earphone is very light weight and sits comfortably in the ears when using it. There is no denotation of L and R on the earphone but can be identified by SoundMagic’s standard color markings – Red for Right and Blue for Left.
Sound Quality

I knew you people are most concerned about this particular section than any other sections. First of all, I repeat that this is an over-ear type earphone and cannot produce its best if used normally. This is primarily designed for gym purpose; however, it is good for normal listening as well.

This is one of the analytical sounding earphones with slight emphasis in bass, natural sounding with no warm or dark sound. The lows are sufficient enough to satisfy a normal user. E30 produces a satisfying bass and has full body texture as compared to the sibling PL30 and this is definitely not a bass monster.

The mids are laid back compared to the PL30 which excelled in producing forward mids. However, E30 manages to neutral sound with good details, in fact a cold sound. The highs are again better than the preceding PL30. It sounds clean and clear compared to PL30 but does not possess crisp sound and the soundstage is not as wide as PL30 but is above average. There is no hissing sound when using the earphone when it rubs the cloth or body- very less microphonics.

Overall considering the price point, these are detailed earphones in SoundMagic’s list and are value for money earphones.  If you are looking for a good earphone for gym use or cold sounding IEM for long time listening, then E30 is one in considering the price point.

DA5000 Pro is a very popular multimedia speaker system and the fans call it as a mini home theater.  The package is really huge with 2 boxes. One box with a heavy 8” sub-woofer and the other box contains satellite speakers. The build quality is good with wooden housings and looks good.

Sound Quality – let me preface by saying sweet sounding speakers for the budget with soft bass and good details. An inbuilt sound card is definitely not a good source to check the efficiency of the speakers.…

Best Audiophile Grade Music Player for Android Devices...

Music Players – Top searched apps on Google Play. What really matters when choosing a player for your phone or tablet? - Software or hardware or both.
It is definitely a good hardware which makes difference in the sound quality. Some cheap quality phones are available in the market for give away prices. Many have cheap quality hardware which cannot deliver quality sound though a good player is installed. But a good player always performs better than the default player provided with the phone. However, many will never be satisfied with the stock player and always look for something better.
Almost all players come with several equalizer settings and tweaks to modulate the sound. However, I personally feel tweaks will spoil the originality of the music and suppress many sounds and delivers recessed output (I am not sure about the custom equalizer though). If you are really an expert in equalizer settings and can judge the difference between clear audio and amplified audio then definite…
