Magaosi is a Chinese brand that produces iems. They started out with the K3 and has since improved it to the K3 HD. Since then, they have released the K5, X3 and Y3. Recently, there is release of the MGS-401. I would like to thank Penon Audio and Magaosi for the review unit of MGS-401. The MGS-401 is available on Penon Audio .

Unboxing & Accessories
The MGS-401 comes in a black package with protective cover that sports the brand name, model name and description of the iem. At the back of the protective cover, there are specifications of the MGS-401. The black package has a transparent film that shows the iem. After opening the package, there are the iem, 3.5mm single ended cable, 2.5mm balanced cable, user manual and semi-hard carrying case which contains packs of tips.

Sorry if I am asking for a lot, but can you compare the MGS-401 to the DM6 and the NS-5 Dream Bridge? I want to be as informed as possible since this will be my first Chi-Fi IEM 🙂
The MGS-401 has a livelier presentation and there is more energy.
If I want a prefere a more balanced sound signiture, should I get this or the dm6?
Also which one have a better sound isolation.
The DM6 but vocals on MGS-401 are better.
Another question. Which iem is funer to listen to?
Can you help me choosing between this,DM6 and OSV3, please? I often listen to piano, female vocal and somtimes edm.
The MGS-401 is more suitable for female vocals but it has a lighter bass performance.
hi, excellent review, do you think that for the price it is better soundstage than you can get? Or do you recommend some other model with a bigger and more detailed sound? for that price I could get a se535 but I do not know if it is the best option.
Thank you! The MGS-401 has good soundstage but it is light in bass. It depends on other factors you are looking at too. There are other recommendations that has good soundstage too but they offer other aspects. Tansio Mirai TSMR 3 for 7 different sound signatures. TFZ Secret Garden HD for impactful bass.
Cheers & Happy New Year ahead!
Big fan of your site and reviews here, love how your analyses are concise and straight to the point. I know they are in total different price levels, but both being 4 driver IEMs, can you please compare the MGS-401 with the IT04 in terms of transparency, detail retrieval, overall FR and isolation? Thanks a lot in advance!
Thank you! The IT04 is better than the MGS-401 in all the aspects you have mentioned. Cheers!
