Our Verdict For the money the PL11s are not a bad effort For Good bass relatively smooth and calm sound Against Could do with a little more poise and agility Reviewed on 12th August 2010 The discreet PL11s are pleasant in appearance and feel comfortable enough in your ears. As well as the 'phones, SoundMAGIC provides you with a carry pouch and rubberised cable wrap. An in-line clip helps to prevent the cable from flapping about or snagging. Start off with a hip-hop track such as T.I.'s Dead and Gone and the first thing that hits you is that they serve up a serious amount of bass. There are others which exhibit more poise and agility, but at this money you can't grumble too much. Some budget in-ears can be afflicted by thin and splashy treble, but the PL11s sound relatively smooth and calm. Not a bad effort.
