"If sophisticated Swedish design, a generous 2 year warranty, customisable headset controls impress you, then the a-JAYS Five presents phenomenal value.
But, If you want no further than a basic earphone with mic then you should go with the SoundMAGIC E10C."
A-JAYS FIVE'S PREMIUM DESIGN VS SOUNDMAGIC E10C'S LOUD COLOUR OPTIONS
SoundMAGIC has come to be known as a brand that offers good quality earphones at veryaffordable prices. Thus, it has won applause from earphone enthusiasts all over. The E10 series from SoundMAGIC has gainedimmense popularity.
SoundMAGIC recently upgraded their most popular E10S to the E10C. The major point of difference is that it has a 3-button remote and microphone which is supposed to be universally compatible with all devices and smartphones.
Let’s talk about the design - the E10C has its earpieces built of metal. However, the metallic red accents and the L-R indicators may come across as gaudy to some if not all. The cable of the E10C, like the E10S series earphones isbraided. This makes the cable tangle resistant. Although, the plastic sheath coating the cable makes it look pretty cheap. With its plastic cables and almost fragile sense of durability, the build quality disappoints.
INTUITIVE & SMART HEADSET CONTROLS VS CUSTOMIZABLE COMFORT
The E10C packs along with it seven pairs of silicone ear-tips of varying sizes, including a double-flanged pair. There's also a small carry case , a shirt clip, and a double-pin adapter to use the headset with a laptop or computer.
A small complaint would be the noise isolation. You will find that these in-ears do not do not do a great job of effectively attenuating environmental sound. However, this does not depricate the value as this is a smaller issue. Further more, noise isolation and fit can be improved with a pair of Noise isolating Comply ear tipsComing to the warranty, JAYS offers 2 years Manufacturer's Warranty whereas SoundMAGIC E10C offers a warranty of 1 year only.
NATURAL BASS & DYNAMIC RANGE VS WARM BASS & TONS OF POWER
SoundMAGIC's E10C has managed to maintain an almost identical sound signature to the older, now discontinued, E10 and E10S. With a reasonably sized driver unit of 10mm, the sound can get loud and can pack a good punch.
Compared to the a-JAYS Five, bass output is a little exaggerated but does have an appeal to those with a large appetite for bass. So fans of EDM and Bollywood should be able to appreciate the warmth and the power of the bass. That said, don't mistake these to be a bass driven pair, as other earphones in this price point, like the Sony XB Series, definitely take a big chunk of the (bass) cake.
Vocals are slightly recessed and the highs are somewhat clean for the price. The overall clarity on the SoundMAGIC E10C is surprisingly good.
The a-JAYS Five has a lot going for it. The fact that it doesn't truly belong to the 2000 rupee price point (up to 70% off!) is very apparent in its design, comfort features and sound.
The SoundMAGIC E10C is a popular buy and offers a pleasingly warm sound with a functional remote that appeals to most.
