Pros Very Good Soundstage, At Just Rs. 800/- in India (approx. USD 16$ only).
Cons Spiky lower high-frequency, earphone develops air pressure inside the ear canal ( not comfortable for everybody).
Summary The best thing about this in-earphone is it is very affortable.
The wires are bit thin but long enough.
It has 9mm neodymium magnet driver.
About sound quality..
frequencies approx below 100hz is ample but I found a lack of beats i.e lower mid frequencies are not so strong. There is little lack in warmth. The lower high frequencies i.e approx from 4khz - 8khz are very spiky because of which you have to keep the volume low else it will eat up your ears.
Well the best thing about the sound is its soundstage which is as good as in-earphones which cost about 3 times more than creative EP630.
I use sony walkman E436 and creative EP630 but any ways this in-earphone works best with Apple ipods.
EP630 provide best noise isolation. But it has to be weared properly for that. when you wear it properly it develops air pressure ( air-bubble ) in earcanal which puts pressure on eardrum. This is because the in-earphone is sealed from everywhere.
Anyways this is a very good headphone for it's price..
If you have Apple ipod then this is excellent choice for better experience if you don't want to spend much.
Pros - Fits great for the first week or two ( I mean sound isolation and good bass ).
- Good sound for this price.
Cons - After about a month they won't sit so firmly in my ears, maybe it's a common problem for all IEMs.
Summary My first IEM were "Koss Spark Plug" ( 2 pairs ) and I thought they were good, but after trying EP-630 I forgot "Plugs" like a horrible nightmare.
Anyhow nothing is perfect. I've had 3 pairs of these headphones:
- First pair lasted after about a year, left channel stopped working ( Instantly died ).
- Second pair lasted after half year or so, left channel stopped working as well ( Instantly died ).
- Third still living without any problems from 2008.
I don't know if I can recommend it, I have not tested a lot of IEM's, but you will not be disappointed with these. Anyway I know they are better than "Koss Spark Plug".
Pros good overal sound, good isolation, don't fall out of your ears.
Cons the wires seem a bit sticky, when you make a wrong move it gets stuck easily and you end up pullig a plug out of your ear.
Summary great deal, good sound just wish the cable was longer sometimes.
Pros Good sound, good bass.
All the features are good For the price. Value for money.
Cons the rubber earpiece is not really comfortable. i have replaced mine with a smoother one.
The wire gets easily tangled.
Summary Its value for money. it gives you the performance of a slightly more expensive ear phone. But not the best in the world
Pros Good fit and weight. They feel comfortable for hours and provide decent noise isolation. The sound quality is a little better than average in this price range and certainly sounds better than the iPod earbuds, which sound muddy.
Cons Every brush of the cord against clothing or my desk comes through and gets annoying, so I have to make an effort to move the cord carefully. The highs are decent, the midrange is a tiny bit too much, and the bass is slightly weak on some songs.
Summary Not a bad set of earbuds. However, when checking prices on Amazon.com I wasn't able to find any particularly good deals and few sellers. You can get a better deal on a better set of earbuds if you'll do some research. I found an entry-level set of Sennheiser CX200s for $12.99 at newegg.com and they seem more durable and the sound quality is better, being much smoother across the range. If you find a good deal on these, though, I would certainly consider it.
