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

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.
