What customers say about "Size & Weight"
SoundMAGIC E10C Noise Isolating In-Ear Headphones
  • High quality construction. The cable is braided, and the buds, plug, splitter, and controls are all metal and have a great feel to them. I also love the gun metal colour.
  • Fit- Excellent. These things fit me well and are light so gravity is not a problem. The lil Jamz I have are built like a tank, sans the cabling, but are metal as well but fairly heavy. They tend to gravity check every now and then.
  • I actually found that a pair of $20 over-the-ear ones fit better, even with all the selections for ear size available, though these do have good sound quality.
  • These are so comfortable and lightweight, that all you really sense is the music. Very high fidelity! I'm not a techie nor a music pro, but I was listening to these at the library and an unexpected interview at the end of a piece of music made me jump!
  • Very happy with this in ear headphones. Good sound, comfortable - and good looking too. Very good exchange for the money!
beyerdynamic Byron Wired Premium In-ear
  • The actual buds themselves fit very nicely in my ear, the medium size are just perfect and seal outside sound extremely well.
  • The BD's are my favorite as they fit my ears (on the small side) comfortably for extended periods at work and airplanes.
  • Very lightweight so more comfortable to wear for extended periods of tiem
  • They are very comfortable, and very tiny.
  • With the right size adapters they are a comfortable fit and completely block out ambient noise. I'm impressed that speakers so small can replicate musical tone and detail almost as well as my much more expensive headphones.

What customers say about "Features"
SoundMAGIC E10C Noise Isolating In-Ear Headphones
  • The sound produced by these earbuds is airy, with an excellent broad soundstage given the price, and highly detailed as I consistently hear new instrumental sounds that I had not heard before from other earbuds.
  • No microphonics or cable noise. I can run with these and not have it pick up any cable noise when the cable moves around or rubs my shirt
  • Great sound for the price. Good set of earbuds. The control volume buttons work wit iOS and android.
  • The only possible criticism of the sound from the E10C earbuds is the volume. The volume is just a bit on the low side, but this is negligible and could be due to the Moto X Pure/Style Edition Android Phone being used.
  • Quality sound but you notice that the volume is on the lower side compared to other I had in this price range.
beyerdynamic Byron Wired Premium In-ear
  • Very balanced sound, bass is smooth but well controlled and a bit elevated but nothing exaggerated. The mids are what stands more in their frequency response (very good mids).
  • Incredible bass (they are rated 10-23,000Hz vs SE 215's 22-17,500Hz) so actually has a better range overall
  • Beyerdynamic have always had a great name and known for their amazing sound quality. I would definitely recommend these to anyone looking for a "lower-end" model of IEMs. The mids and highs sound very nice and the bass is definitely up-to par as well.
  • Nevertheless the sound is great. I owned a pair of Shure se215 that cost twice the price, and the sound difference is very slight. The Shures are much bigger, heavier and expensive.
  • Cord seems somewhat flimsy so don't know how long these will last
  • Easy to pair and the battery lasts well. However, I can’t get them to fit without falling out / loosing their seal.
