Our Verdict

Great headphones that are held back by better value rivals


  • Solid bass, good body and punch


  • Better value from rivals

The SoundMAGIC PL30s prove a pleasant surprise.

In the box you get an abundance of buds, both foam and plastic, as well as a chunky but solid carry case and a pair of comfortable over-ear clips.

The delivery boasts bouncy, solid bass, with lovely punch and body through the range.

The presentation has decent dynamics and scale - only better value rivals holds them back from a fifth star.
