Soundmagic, a company known for pushing boundaries in the budget earphone market has just released their first full-size offerings: the HP100, HP200, and WP10.
The closed-back HP100 retails for around $200 and offers a solid combination of fashionable looks, full-fledged accessories, and unique sound signature.
Instead of trying to take on the portable heavyweights in the price range (Audio Technica M50, Sennheiser HD-25-1 II, Phiaton MS400) head on, the HP100 is actually very unique and distinguishes itself from the rest of the pack. Those looking for a bass-heavy ‘phone can turn their heads away, but the HP 100’s sound seems to be something the mid-market is really missing: neutral, spacious, and detailed.
The HP100 comes with a detachable cable, gold disco-ball looking earcups, a very nice case, and a few other goodies (1/4″ adapter, cleaning cloth, and a carabiner to attach the case to your belt (just kidding)).
I have not been able to dig up much about the open-back HP200 or wireless WP10, but here are some photos (click to enlarge):
