Best 240 bux ever spent - iBall beats Soundmagic PL11


Ok so another pair of my earphones conked, so being short of funds, i ordered these cheapo iball beat earphones of flipkart for 240, low in expectations, i put these on my itouch but a was in for a pleasant surprise!these sound decent!better than pl11 for sure, almost as good as the marshmallows.the bass is great, and the overall sound is good (considering how cheap these are)

But i seriously expect these to die in two months (but then flipkart replacement is super fast).

So if you are looking for some cheap earphones, give these poor guys a try.

So the PL11's should basically cost less than Rs 240

Re: Best 240 bux ever spent - iBall beats Soundmagic PL11

Really bold statement, but then the PL-11s were not that great. My two roommates had PL11s which inevitably died after a few weeks. All soundmagic iems seems to be poorly built. Anyway, I guess these would be some rebadged chinese stuff, so should be dead in no time

Re: Best 240 bux ever spent - iBall beats Soundmagic PL11

This should be true.

I hate my PL30s. My PL11s conked off after a few months of use. (Both bought retail)
My cheapo Philips iem (got em for free with my 5230) sound way better than that crapload.

Re: Best 240 bux ever spent - iBall beats Soundmagic PL11

old pl30 sounded great and build was decent. I still have those....over 2 yrs old now working fine.
But pl11 on other hand(bought this year) two of them conked in couple of months, both with jack problem. I guess SoundMagic has deteriorated the quality substantially.

Yes, that's amazing but they dont match Ad1tya's earphones built for 150 years of usage (while swinging your head and neck as demonstrated in Ad1tya's avatar).
