As usual I got a few hours on the earphones before I embarked on my review.
With the Simgot EN700 bass I first used the same set up as I did for the EN700 review. The Opus#1, CEntrance Hifi-Skyn and Shozy Alien Gold.
I volume matched with the Dr.Meter MS20 SPL meter.
Later I listened with he iBasso DX200, Opus#3, Opus#1, Cozoy REI and straight out from my ipod touch 6G.
Whilst mentally comparing the Simgot EN700 bass to other earphones I was mindful that it is a US$100 earphone. Its specialized stylish design can make one think more of upmarket/higher priced models. And while its easy to sum up an earphone in this price region as `good performance for the price` etc, that can be a lazy approach, even If at times it most certainly is true in some cases.
The Simgot EN700 Bass is one of these earphones, its design, packaging and over all look scream `I`m a special kind of something`.
These days the market for lower priced earphones is heating up, some are making whole collections out of the sub $100 market.
The Simgot EN700 is most certainly affordable, although I still have memories of buying my first $100 pair of earbuds and thinking to myself `what am I doing?`. Ah earlier innocent days.
The packaging is very beautiful.
The earphones themselves are a big step up in design from the earlier model, the EN700. The housing is smaller and the fit more natural and easier.
The cable is a nice braided affair and covered in a type of material, yet still pliable. The earlier version was more a medium type plastic or rubber coating which didn`t yield so well.
I read that a version with a detachable MMCX cable will be released in the future.
A nice double set of tips (small and large bore), with S.M and L for each helps the user to get a decent seal and a comfortable fit.
The Simgot EN700 scales up quite well when matched with a +$500 dap, clarity, sound stage and detail is improved.
I found using the JVC Spiral Tips vastly improved the Simgot EN700 Bass, tighter, fuller, wider and better separation and clarity overall.
The Simgot EN700 Bass an excellent, comfortable and stylish looking $100 earphone that can be improved with a simple bit of tip rolling.
