Mrice E300 In-Ear headphones
The Mrice E300 earphones offer highly impressive audio performance at a fraction of the cost.
- Mrice E300 headphones.
- 4 sizes of earbuds.
- Carry pouch.
After reading an article on Wired.com about how the Mrice E300 earphones were comparable to Audiophile grade headphones costing over 20 times the price, I had to find out for myself.
The Mrice E300 in-ear headphones arrived through the post in a no-thrills retail box. Included with the E300 is a basic plastic carry pouch and a bag or variable sized earbuds. No hand stitched silk cushion or fancy backlit pedestal to be found.
I do understand why leading brands in audio technology are happy to spend extra on presentation and celebrity endorsement. It raises the expectation of quality and helps justify the ridiculous price tag [a dig at BEATS].
In the case of these Mrice E300 earphones, I actually think the opposite is true. The basic packaging helps to make sense of how they can manage to sell a high-quality product at such a low price.
2Mrice E300 Earphones – Build Quality
The Mrice E300 earphones look and feel extremely well made, with notable features including:
- Tangle-free wire – The 1.25m red TPE triangle headphone wire is lightweight yet highly durable. Over the last 2 weeks of testing these earphones they haven’t tangled once which has been a real pleasure.
- Earbud design – Most in-ear headphones have a standard transition from the earbud to the cord which usually involves a rubber retainer glued or pushed into place. These always seem to come loose over time. The extended neck design of Mrice E300 earbuds has done away with the need for the retainer.
- 3.5mm Audio Jack – This is typically the area where most of my earphones have failed in the past. The gold plated Mrice connector seems to be far more robust and less likely to perish over time.

If you are looking for a set of quality earphones, the Mrice E300’s will save you a ton of money without any compromise on build quality or sound performance. Is it really worth paying 10 times more for a brand name or a fancy box? I don’t think so.
