Straight out of the box, the EW100P immediately caught my attention with its solid build quality. The shells are crafted from glossy black resin and feature durable aluminium alloy faceplates. Near the base of the nozzle, you’ll find a small vent. Additionally, the EW100P comes equipped with 0.78mm 2-pin sockets, allowing for easy cable swapping.
Beyond its aesthetics, the EW100P excels in comfort and practicality. The ergonomic design of the shells ensures a secure fit that can be comfortably worn all day long. Plus, the earphones provide effective passive noise isolation, minimizing external distractions and allowing you to fully immerse yourself in your music.
The included cable, a silver-plated copper (SPC) 0.78mm 2-pin ribbon cable, may be simple in design but delivers excellent performance. Its flexibility and smooth texture make it easy to handle, and you’ll experience minimal cable noise.
The Simgot EW100P is an efficient IEM and thus does not require a powerful source – you can run it straight out of a phone or laptop.
EW100P has a U-shaped sound signature and adheres closely to the Harman target. It has a balanced and slightly warm tonality – one that favours vocal and midrange performance.
The soundstage is average in size which is typical for this kind of tuning. Instrument separation is pretty good although it deteriorates during more complex passages. Tonally, the EW100P performs well and it produces instruments and vocals with a natural timbre.
There’s more weight in the sub-bass than in the mid-bass and as such, EW100P can produce some decent rumble. Mid-bass and kick drums are done pretty well and are controlled if not authoritative. However, I found bass guitars on this IEM lack depth and presence, resulting in a hollow or thin sound.
The vocals take a prominent position in the mix and exhibit a pleasingly natural tone. While the midrange notes possess commendable body and thickness, they could benefit from a touch more grit and bite. It is not uncommon for in-ear monitors (IEMs) that prioritize the midrange to have a somewhat flattened sound. Nonetheless, the midrange clarity remains satisfactory, and there is no excessive congestion or darkness in the sound signature.
The treble is unexceptional, yet it carries a natural and relaxed demeanour. The timbre of the highs is pleasant, though it would benefit from a touch of added sparkle and excitement. The emphasis here seems to be on achieving a pleasing tonal balance rather than precision. As a consequence, the overall presentation is free from fatigue, but it does miss some definition and extension in the higher frequencies.
In conclusion, the Simgot EW100P offers good overall value and quality but doesn’t really bring anything new to the table. It joins a host of other solid budget IEMs with similar tuning and as such, doesn’t stand out from the crowd. Nevertheless, thanks to its natural tone and excellent ergonomics, the EW100P remains a worthwhile purchase at its price point. I would confidently recommend it alongside other popular budget favourites.
