SIMGOT EW200 IEMs – Dynamic Driver Entry Witchery

SIMGOT EW200 IEMs – Dynamic Driver Entry Witchery

Simgot EW200 is a $35.9 USD IEM or In-Ear Monitor from the entry-level range with a super neat design, complex new driver structure, and with a high quality cable, designed to be one of the most affordable options you have in this hobby. 



Simgot is a company from China, which is usually sold and fulfilled by Linsoul, but also available through other channels, being masters at providing high price / performance ratio for their products, reliable products, and being some of the first Chifi companies who approached me in 2017 when I first started writing reviews. They are generally great, but since Linsoul handles most overseas sales for them, you’ll likely be happy with the presentation of both companies. As an Amazon Influencer, I earn from qualifying purchases, and using the purchase links in my reviews helps me maintain this website and YouTube channel.

I’d like to thank SIMGOT for providing the sample for this review, in exchange for my honest opinion. This review is a description of my personal experience, and Audiophile-Heaven doesn’t have an affiliation with Simgot beyond the review you’re reading today.

Build Quality/Aesthetics/Fit/Comfort

SIMGOT EW200 is one of the very few IEMs for which I have to keep opening the page with technical info to read what exactly went into producing it, as the story is quite interesting. Simgot has a Flagship-Level Dual-Magnetic Circuit, with Dual-Vacity Dynamic Driver. The short version is that there are dual magnetic systems with both internal and external magnetic paths, and N52-Grade magnets for EW200. 

Simgot also implemented a new SCP diaphragm, which uses a special polymer film dubstated, coated with silicone, combining the strengths of both DLC and LCP diaphragms. The cable included with the IEMs is a High-quality Silver Plated OFC Cable. Subjectively, the cable is super neat, flexible, no microphonic noise, and it winds neatly around my ears. The cable has a 3.5mm SE connector, which is good for an entry-level IEM. 

With an impedance of 16 OHMs and a SPL of 126dB/Vrms, EW200 is super easy to drive and will get loud, and be great with most sources. This being said, the impedance is on the low side, and you may hear a bit of hissing with sources that have a high output impedance. The cables are detachable, using 2-Pin standard connectors. The cable is so nice that I would buy the EW200 if I broke the cable on an IEM, just to get this cable. 

Joking aside, EW200 is designed neatly, it has a full metallic shell, with no electric shocks while you’re wearing it. There is also no driver flex, the shells have an opening that allows for pressure equalization, and there are no problems with Simgot EW200, the wearing experience being great. The passive noise isolation is average, around 15-20 dB, and they have some leakage that can be heard from around the room at high volumes. The only thing that I could complain about is that altough they look beautiful, the metallic surface is a fingerprint magnet. 

To drive the Simgot EW200 I’ve been using a selection of sources including FiiO BTR15, HIFIMAN EF600, Hiby Digital M300, Shanling UA1, JDS Labs Element III MK2 Boosted, SMSL DO400, Audioengine D1, and iFi Go Bar. This is an IEM that is easy to drive but which scales a bit with the source, and which has a sound that requires a source that has a wide, holographic soundstage, but pairs well with both warmer and colder sounding sources. 


Sound Quality

The overall sound of Simgot EW200 is natural, dynamic, wide, holographic and impressive, with the resolution being easily above what we’re seeing these days from 100 USD IEMs, a fast transient response in the midrange and bass, but with a softer transient in the treble. It manages to have both a bright, well extended treble, but avoids being sharp, harsh and fatiguing as Chifi IEMs are typically described to be. Simgot designed a sound that’s a bit sweeter, more delightful than Harman standard is, but also implemented it in a Chifi IEM in the entry-level. The sound of EW200 is great across all volume levels, but it handles medium volumes best. At low volumes, the sound is a bit too smooth and scattered, while at high volumes, the sound can be a bit shouty and forward, though this is pleasing for metal and rock. 

The bass is full, has most of the energy where you want it to, between 40 and 70 Hz, with a bit of a dip around 100Hz to avoid the veiled signature typically associated with a strong 100 Hz presence. The sub bass doesn’t extend very well, and below 40 Hz, there’s not as much energy, and the bass can be a bit smeared, having a slow and sloppy response, but it is not dry, and instead is pretty full. The bass bleeds a tiny bit into the midrange, but not enough to cause smear, just enough to warm things up slightly. 

The midrange is natural in presence compared to the bass and the treble, just a hair recessed, but with male voices in particular having a pleasing presentation. Especially Emo, Pop, Rock and metal sounds sweet played on EW200, and it is the kind of IEM that can make a punk/emo boy / girl happy, presenting Dance Gavin Dance, Alesana, Enter Shikari and others. The soundstage and instrument separation is surprisingly good, and for example, on the “(pls) set me on fire” song by Enter Shikari, around 1:50, the guitar playing in the background is clearly audible through EW200, although most IEMs even at 300 USD don’t really reveal it much. The sound is best for guitars and rock, alternative rock, with EDM and Dubstep being on a second place, as EW200 is great for drum beats and blasts, but Classical music and acoustic music falls a bit lower, as EW200 both is better for male voices than female, and also for guitars over violins and pianos. This is because the sound is happy more than it is emotional, having a slight recession in the upper midrange compared to lower midrange. 

The treble is well extended up to 16 kHz, above which it tends to roll off slightly. Most of the treble energy is quite high, around 14 kHz, which avoids the sharp points of 7 kHz and 9 kHz that typically sound metallic and harsh, but also gives EW200 a strong sense of spatiality and soundstage. The dynamic headroom is fairly good, with the soundstage being around the head of the listener, but with a good instrument separation, which helps rock and metal have a natural, dynamic presentation. The whole sound comes through as Vivid. 


Value and Conclusion

There is no chance for a 35.9 USD IEM to be perfect, and I don’t review entry-level products often enough to make proper comparisons, but EW200 is surprisingly good for its money, and for this kind of money you’re into the Kaufland / Best Buy / Convenience Store Earphone territory, and Simgot EW200 absolutely slaughters those in the price / performance ratio, it is so much better, and a great starter for this hobby, or a great backup IEM. 

At the end of the day, if you mainly listen to rock, emo, alternative, or Pop, Dubstep and Electronic music, Simgot EW200 is a comfortable, good sounding IEM with excellent build quality, great looks, and a nice cable, and a fully recommended purchase that I can vouch will put a smile on your face when you hear it.
