SoundMAGIC are back at it again with the E10s. But, this time, the company takes one of the best budget earphones and adds Bluetooth, creating the E10BT. Using the E10’s as my throw-away earphones, I was intrigued to see how the E10BT would compare in both value and sound quality.
At £70 the E10BTs ($55 in the US) aren’t as affordable as their non-Bluetooth variants, the £30 E10 (non-mic) ($42 in the US) and the £40 E10C (mic) ($50 in the US). At the time of writing, the E10BT is only available in black. If you’re looking for a Bluetooth earphone that offers good sound quality at an affordable price, the J&L-102 (£23) ($22 in the US), SoundPEATS Q21 (£20) and Sumvision Pysc Espirit (£17) all provide sensational value for money and offer fantastic sound.
