Guys tanong lang. Saan nyo sinasaksak yun SoundMagic ES18 at Superlux nyo? I mean, sa phone ba o MP3 player?

I got to try ES18 tsaka 2 models ng Superlux, forgot the model names, and unfortunately, they didn't sound right to my ears. I plugged them to my S4, which by the way requires 32ohms impedance. Natataasan ako sa mids ng ES18 at nakukulangan ako sa highs/treble making the clarity so-so for me. For the Superlux, it was not for me.

I have the stock S4 in-ear headset and a TDK IE500. Ok na sana yun stock earphones kaso nakukulangan ako sa bass lalo na pag nasa bus ako. Hindi makasabay sa ugong ng bus. Ok din sana yun IE500. Sakto ang mids and highs kaso napapagod tenga ko katagalan gawa ng sobrang boomy ng bass. Kung pwede lang sana i-combine yun 2 para saktong sakto na sa listening pleasure ko.  :-\

Hope you guys could recommend me a good in-ear headset na nasa reasonable price. Siguro yun hindi lalagpas ng 2k.

for the stock earphones, hindi mo talaga makukuha ung ideal mo na tunog. maybe the isolation due to the tips, baka hindi masyadong fit sayo.  kung gusto mo ng balance for that price, try mo yung ATH CKM-500i or CKN50, another option will be the VSonic GR02 bass edition. :)

I'm currently using the largest pair of buds for the stock earphones kaso kapos talaga sa bass. I will check on those brands and models. Thanks!

I use mine sa Samsung Galaxy Y at sa Laptop ko, Samsung dn... 370r4e yung model...
Ok naman sa pandinig ko yung ES18...

Kung gusto mo ng mas bass try mo sony xb series, or kung ndi naman kaya, saksak mo yung headphones mo sa mp3 player na may bass boost, meron din si sony, 1,999 2gb... NWZ-B172F/P

Just hang around sa sony, madalas may nakadisplay na test unit...

Ndi ko pa natry yung es18 sa ipod nano gen 1 ko...

I'll try later...

I did a little research a while ago. Wala pala kinalaman yun impedance sa sound quality.  :eek: I just have to rely on what I'm hearing when I test different earphones. I also tried the Klipsch, not for my ears as well. I read somewhere na oks daw sa S4 yun Ultimate Ears 500. Sana meron sa Egghead para matest.

gamit ko yung es18 sa ipod classic.. at gaya nga nung review ko okay naman, medyo tweak lang yung highs using ipod's EQ, okay naman!

Walang UE sa Egghead.try mo Westone nila baka magustuhan mo din.

And try tweaking the EQof your player din.naging habit ko na yung papasyal ako ng Egghead,kada earphone o headphone na isaksak ko eh kinakalikot ko din yun EQ.timpla timpla lang.if youre using an android phone,try downloading Rocket Player.it has more preset EQ kesa sa stock player ng android e.

Yeah, will do in the future. Ang hirap kasi pumasyal sa Egghead kapag taga Cavite ka tapos sa Makati nagtatrabaho. Out of the way.

Actually I kinda solved my bass frequency dilemma with my stock earphones. I took jmwreck's advice about the tips. I placed the TDK IE500's tips on the stock earphones, and tweaked the EQ of my player (actually may settings ang stock S4 player na ADAPT SOUND wherein it'll boost/cut and/or balance the frequencies that you hear). Ayun, medyo lumabas yun bass frequencies na gusto ko marining. Medyo solb na ko pero kung makakatest ako ng mas maganda tapos within the budget na earphones, then why not. It's just that I'm not convinced by the ES18 like you guys. Ewan ko, bingi na ata ako.

Eto po yung Frequency response ng ES18
From http://www.head-fi.org/t/598627/review-soundmagic-es18-measured


Siguro kailangan mo lang muna burn-in para lumabas tunay na tunog nya...

Katulad ng XB400 ko, medyo ndi ko tinigilan yung paggamit ko ng first 2 days...
Hahaha... :mrgreen:

Well kanya kanya pa rin.sold na ako sa ES18 nung unang test ko sa kanya.i even got it replaced when the left channel broke dahil nanghinayang ako.i tried other brands there,even went as far as the pricey onespero balik es18 hehe.at maganda yun stock android players ngayon may preset eq na nga gaya nyan sayo.dati alam ko wala.im using an LG with presets by dolby.sa htc beats audio enhancement.yours i think has good enhancements at maganda din feedback na naririnig ko sa stock earphones ng samsungs.

Yup.i once mentioned here how the burn in helps.what i do naman is to make a playlist sa pc ng kahit anong music na makuha ko.saksak earphones tapos iiwan ko ng mga 12 hours.wag mo nga pala itodo yun volume mga 60-75% lang.

Ah talaga? May burn in stage din pala ang earphones. Now I know! Anyway, wala naman siguro fake ng ES18 na nakakalat sa mga gaya ng Astrovision no. Tsaka mas mura sa kanila kasi P500 lang compared sa Egghead na P600+. Gusto ko nga ulit balikan yun ES18 tapos spend some time tweaking my MP3 player's EQ and enhancement.

^Hit or miss din yun burn in procedure kaya maganda yun may demo unit sa bibilihan kasi naka burn in na yun.itanong mo sa store clerk kung burned in na para sure kang yun na talaga actual output nya sa tenga mo.yun sa egghead tinanong ko kung ibebenta ba nila yun demo units,ayaw nung clerk kasi naka burn in at sayang oras kung magbubukas pa sila ng bago at mag burn in ulit.

Buti meron na sa astroplus.ang hirap maghanap ng Soundmagics dati dumadayo pa ko ng Gilmore para lang dun haha.

Good day Guys! :D
Tried searching an earphone/headphone cable replacement para sa mga luma kong earphone a headphone. Anyone knows where can I buy it? Or is there someone that I can PM dito sa thread? Tapos baka meron din nagbebenta ng CMOY amp dito. Baka kaya ng budget bili na lang ako kesa ako mag build at baka sumablay ako. :D
Thanks in advance and more power to us!  :mrgreen:

Guys, saan nakakabili ng carrying case for headphones? My Audio Technica ATH-WS77's don't come with a case, which is strange, considering at its price range usually may kasamang ganung accessories. Tiyaga ako ngayon sa pouch eh. I want something a little more protective. Thanks!  :)

Ako din gusto ko nyan para sa  Xb400 ko...
 :idea:

Wala din kasi sya kasamang case...  :cry:


Pero pwede na din siguro yung mga gumagawa ng mga bag brands like case logic, golla, etc...  :mrgreen:

Dagdag ko lang Soundmagic PL11


Ok naman yung sound, mas gusto ko gamitin to sa fone kesa sa es18, pangit kasi tunog ni samsung  :cry: kaya kailangan ng magandang earphone na magpapaganda kahit papaano ng tunog nya... :lol:

Medyo flat pa  din naman yung tunog nya, pero yung lower frequency madidinig mo talaga  :-D
Pero hindi naman nya sinasapawan yung ibang frequency...

tanong lang, hindi ba madaling mag tear o bumigay yung strain relief ng ES18? plan ko bumili pangsamantala habang nagiipon for a better IEM. thanks :D

eto pala yung tinutukoy ko:


yan kasi agad bumigay sa superlux HD381 ko
