Simgot EN700 Bass In-ear Earphone Review

5

Introduction –

Simgot doesn’t have the rich heritage of decade-old Western audio giants like Bowers and Wilkins, Grado and Shure, but their fresh outlook on audio does net them with a certain level of creative freedom. And though their first earphone, the EN700, didn’t grant them with a glorious entrance onto the audio scene like other Chinese manufacturers Dunu and Oriveti, Simgot’s huge aspirations are only matched by their stunning rate of development; demonstrated by their upcoming EN700 Pro along with a set full-wireless earphones. And sitting in the middle is the EN700 Bass, an evolution of the EN700 that has proved to be one of my favourite earphones around the $100 USD price class. Keep reading to see how the EN700 Bass compares to some of the most competitive earphones around this price and whether it’s natural tones will work for you.

 

Disclaimer – 

I would like to thank Simgot very much for getting in contact and providing me with the EN700 Bass for review. There is no monetary incentive for a positive review and despite receiving the earphones free of cost, I will be as objective as possible in my analysis.

 

Accessories –

The EN700 Bass has a nice unboxing, the larger box and high-quality print convey a greater sense of quality than models like the Magaosi K3 Pro for instance. The outer box slides off to reveal a textured hard box.

Inside lies the earphones within foam along with the very nice leather carrying case just below. Within the case are 6 pairs of tips within cardboard holders that enable the user to adjust the sound of the earphones; 3 pairs that boost low frequencies and 3 pairs of high frequency orientated tips.

All tips are of nice quality and provide a really great way to alter the sound, illuminating the astonishing effects tip rolling can produce on other earphones, not just the EN700 Bass. The included case is also of great quality with a hard design coated in convincing PU Leather. It comfortably fits the earphones and magnetically closes, one of my favourite oem cases.

    Hi Ryan, great read.
    I usually listen to EDM, rock/metal, little bit of pop, and the odd RnB/hip hop song and a very small amount of classical/piano solos. How do the Oriveti Basic compare to the Simgot EN700 Bass and Shure SE215 (maybe I’ll consider 315 too)? It’s going to be a daily driver for me, and I may possibly hook it up to the PC too for gaming since I get terrible headset hair!

      Hi Jack,

      Considering your music tastes, assuming it’s in order of preference, I would probably point you towards the Basics, they have the best bass response of the bunch, they are also the most comfortable and are almost as stable and isolating as the Shures. The Simgots have strange earguides and are more semi-open so they aren’t the best in noisier environments. That being said, the Simgots have the best soundstage and are still perfectly comfortable if that is a main priority. I generally don’t recommend the Shures, especially not the SE315, the SE215 is a good earphone if you want a warm low-end and a super solid fit though I feel that these newer earphones perform at a higher level.

      Cheers,
      Ryan.

    Earbuds and in ear are great for commuters as the sound is in your ear and does not “leak”out to others around you. The real advantages are that these headphones are very very portable and kind of hidden within your ears The SoundMAGIC E10 Noise Isolating In-Ear Earphones are designed with comfortable ear tips that fit right into your ear, allowing for stability despite constant movement. The isolation also leads to richer sound. Get more information at http://www.soundmagic.us/index.php/product/soundmagic-e10-noise-isolating-ear-earphones/, about in ear earphones.

    Hi Ryan,
    I think I’m gonna buy simgot en700 bass over k3pro for it’s natural tuning (and safer). I am thinking performance wise (details, clarity) they should be on the same ground and en700 bass got one point less than k3 pro because of it’s inferior built and non detachable cables.

      Thanks for your comments Shaan, I hope you like it. Pretty much scored lower than the K3 Pro due to the non-removable cable and the fit isn’t quite as stable as the K3 Pro. If you are treble sensitive, the EN700 Bass is definitely a safer choice than the K3 Pro and TFZ King, I’m also a fan of the Oriveti Basic if you want more sub-bass and an even more laid-back tone.
