Cheapest price ever on Amazon according to Camel Camel. Decent earphones, in fact I'd suggest there is none better at this price range. Just ordered a set myself. Hope this helps someone!

good sound poor build quality


Are you serious, I've had these for a few years now and I can tell you that they are the only headphones I have had that have lasted that long. Considering that I use them almost daily, that is some achievement and so the build quality is amazing, and I would go as far as to say that the build quality is better than the sound quality.

Maybe you could have been unfortunate with a faulty batch, or just simply unlucky.

Disagree. Had mine for over a year and a half, used daily. Been pulled out of my ear if iphone fell or wire got on something, dropped, tangled etc and they're as good as new so far.

Agree, mine lasted 6 months, lots of reviews state the right ear loses sound around 6 months into use, which was true with mine.

Posted less than a week ago, get that thread unexpired rather then posting a new one as price hasn't changed.

Bought for my son- lasted longer than any others that he has had!

Ooops! Told a lie! These lasted not too long....it's the ones that were bought after these that have lasted.

Had a pair of MP21 soundmagic's since April 2011 and the build quality is awesome longest I have had a pair last they been stretched run over by office chair etc but still going strong. The sound quality is very good as well for price. Had Shure, Sennheiser & Sony before but Soundmagic has been best so far. The RHA's are a good alternative as well.

Great headphones, I agree with the build quality statements though, with my pair the actual two parts of the earbud came apart, told amazon and they sent a new pair no questions asked so that was fine. Happened again with the new pair though out of warranty, bit of superglue and they are ok.

As for none better for the price ranger however, check these out: http://www.head-fi.org/products/xiaomi-pistons-2-0-mk301

Getting rave reviews all over, cheaper, and has in-line volume controls.

I've got some soundmagics - I thought they might be a cheap brand, but they're so good I forgot I even ever had to replace my previous pair of Sennheisers (twice). These things sound good, last well.. they seemed too good to be true, and they weren't!

Heat added.
#11
mine lasted ages without any issues (and sounded better than most earphones i've tried in this price range, which is quite a few now!) - and that's using them every day, too. the only reason they bit the dust is because i zipped my jacket up too quickly, and it sliced the cable on one of the earphones :( . i don't think it's fair to blame the build quality for that, though...

Yeah but loads of fake around xiaomi ones. Not sure whom to buy off as none of them seem to have them based in UK

Thanks, I bought the gold/black ones as they are same price also. Shame the black ones aren't reduced too though.
#14
Had these for over a year, love them! Great price
#15
delievered tuesday, seem decent.
#16
Agree with all previous comments regarding top notch sound and build quality. Mine are bullet proof and still sounding great two years later.

Check out the What hi-fi review here - http://www.whathifi.com/soundmagic/e10/review
#17
I think the comments on build quality of some items, especially earphones, are a bit of a red herring. There are some people who simply cannot (or will not) look after things however high quality and however well made they are.

It's just the way it is. Those who complain of low quality are more than likely to be the ones that don't look after things. Of course this does not apply to every single person just before somebody decides to give me an example that contradicts this assumption.
#18
had mine 2 years now. Not a problem with them. sound quality is great
#19
Had a pair of these for nearly 2 years...absolutely beltIng pair of earphones for the cash (£30 at the time) no problems with build quality. I read that they did upgrade them about 2 years ago...newer versions have a twist in the cable and are possibly more robust hence differences of opinion....?

Heat added.

Great sound quality, this side of £100.

This. Had 2 pairs (1 a replacement) both developed the same fault. Can't fault the sound for the money, but when the casing comes apart it's not much good. Hopefully they've improved.
#22
Looked at these a couple of months back, great reviews, as previously stated they were about £30 even better value now, well worth a gamble, if they do fall apart after a few weeks they'll just be returned/replaced, heat added!
#23
Bought these before, only lasted a month or so then the right channel stopped working.
#24
does anyone own both these and the rha ma350? i can't decide which one to get.
#25
Build quality seems good however in my opinion they don't sound nearly as good as the Sennheiser cx 400ll that they were bought to replace, they however are currently £65 on amazon and are only rated 3 1/2 stars so I guess it's all subjective.
The only other problem is they constantly fall out whilst running. But then again they aren't marketed as a sports earphone.

Same happened to mine in less than two months.
#28
These are excellent headphones and outperform sets that are 3 times this price. I've owned 2 sets myself and bought a set for my partner, my first set lasted 2 years and my second set have been going strong for a year now along with my partners.

I'd highly recommend these as a replacement for any set that came with a device the difference in quality is huge especially if you've only ever used cheapo or came with sets before.

I agree - from personal experience. Jack fell apart on first use, had to return to Amazon.

I've bought a pair from here: http://penonaudio.com/Xiaomi-Piston-2.0-Earphones

Granted I've not received them yet, but most legit forums and such seem to recommend this site, not heard of anyone getting fakes from here. With free shipping too they still end up cheaper than the E10s here. Might take a while to arrive though.

Silly question time, have a pair of beats headphones that came free with my htc one which don't sound bad ... will these be significantly better ?

Was so close to buying these recently but got sidetracked. Ordered and saved a fiver from what I was going to originally pay. Finally my short attention span has paid off.

You won't because it is less than £20 and they did not give me a fee

I think these Moxpad x3s are equally good, if not better, and are significantly cheaper as well. Cheap enough not to attract any custom duty as the amount is below the threshold

Here is a review.

In terms of exchange rates etc., use Halifax ClariMetro Bank card. Since AliExpress bills you from UK when you buy from UK (they have an office in London), you don't need to pay any fees on the exchange rate using these cards. I ended up paying about £13 for these in the end.
