JBL Synchros E10 Review
  • PROS
  • Well represented mids and highs
  • Tonal accuracy and decent soundstage
  • Flat, tangle free cable
  • CONS
  • Falls short pure aural performance
  • No spare tips

Verdict

The Synchros E10 has the typical JBL sound signature – well represented mids and highs with an over-load on bass. In terms of performance, it’s got what you would need – clarity, tonal accuracy and decent soundstage. Although, if you compare the E10 to a reference monitor level IEM you’ll find that the lower midrange is a little more enhanced than usual giving them a slightly warm sound signature. Overall, the Synchros is worth a look but maybe not your money.

JBL Synchros E10 detailed review

The new Synchros E10 from JBL finds itself fitting snugly into a category that's growing fast– a category comprised of slightly above entry level IEMs designed for users who want to go beyond the EP630s and EM1s of the world. This is not such a segmented category globally, and elsewhere all of these headphones are clubbed under sub $50 range, but here in India this higher range of the entry level segment is gaining traction.


The Synchros E10 has the typical JBL sound signature – well represented mids and highs with an over-load on bass. In terms of performance, it’s got what you would need – clarity, tonal accuracy and decent soundstage. Although, if you compare the E10 to a reference monitor level IEM you’ll find that the lower midrange is a little more enhanced than usual giving them a slightly warm sound signature.

In terms of features, it hits the right spots as well with its flat, tangle free cable and a see-through box that doubles as a carry case. But how does it hold up against the competition? Let's take the similarly named and priced SoundMagic E10M as a reference. Compared to it, the Synchros E10 falls slightly behind in terms of pure aural performance. The SoundMagic is a superior albeit more delicate headphone and hence there is a trade off. At the same time the Synchros doesn’t come with spare ear tips which was a bit of a downer.

Overall though, The JBL Synchros E10 makes for an almost perfect substitute, hence we'd suggest you try it out before you buy it.
