These are hands down the most frustrating earphones I've ever owned. They simply cannot be put in the ear quickly. It's like a science project, straightening them out, inserting, adjusting for correct placement, then carefully curling the cable around the ear. I wanted something for when I'm sitting at my computer, just put them in, work, pull them out. These are maddening. On the plus side, once in, great at cancelling out background noise. Sublime sound quality. Really decent product for the price. It's a shame I hate them so much I've boxed them back up, never to use again.
My old pair of bright green Sennheiser neckband earphones finally broke after many years service and punishment and I needed something to replace them for gym use and general iPod listening. I want great quality sound, comfort and small size. The old Sennheisers did all of this but were no longer available on Amazon, the reviews for the new Models weren't too good or they were too expensive so I spotted the good reviews for these. I've used ear buds before and they always fall out but I took a gamble on the ear hook and the in ear rubber thingies on the end maybe keeping it all in place. No. I fiddled around with the ear hooks but they're not very good and not very effective. I tried the different latex blobs on the end of the earphones and the cone type kept in my ear the longest but still eventually failed and fell. As soon as sweat is added in the mix you're finished. I really don't want to be constantly stopping, drying my ears and replacing the earphones. Apart from that, most of the time, I pushed the earphone in and it blocked my ear with no sound coming from one ear at all. It finally works after two songs worth of fiddling. Then falls out! So money wasted but fortunately not expensive. I eventually found a new pair of of my old neckband sweat resistant earphones on Ebay.
Product came the day after it was dispatched even though free delivery was only selected. The earphones are excellent quality and are really comfortable. The large triple flange tip does go quite deep into the ear but you soon get use to the feeling. The drivers themselves are very small and fit really nicely into the ear so that they are flush,and they are really low profile. The audio quality is also excellent, the bass is well balanced with the mids and the highs (from a sound engineers perspective) and the sound isolation is very good so long as you choose the right ear tip and get a good seal. The carry case is very useful but there was no cable tidy as I understand come with some models, but that was no problem for me.
Overall, excellent quality, very comfortable and amazing price.
I was going to replace my Phillips headphones or possibly go for some bluetooth in-ear headphones, but I don't think they are quite there yet. I was very dubious of an unheard of brand, but they got good reviews, so I gave them a try. They are just what I was looking for. A good sports heaphone with great sound and good value for money. Well, they are superb at sticking in your ear whilst running. Get the right ear plug (plenty to choose from, some a bit weird looking, but horses for courses) and these little buggers need prising out of your ear, they certainly don't slip even when sweating! The sound is very good. I thought they were a bit tinny at first, but in comparison they just produce an extremely clear sound with good mid & bass. Very impressed with the sound. Wasn't sure of the bend to fit wrap round the top of your ear. Once you get used to that it works a treat. Lets see how durable that is. Tangle free wires are good too. They fit so snug to the contour of your ear that you can hardly hear much externally even without any music playing (good for the train). Only had them a couple of weeks and I'm impressed so far. Quality product with a neat carry case. A surprising find.
I needed a pair of headphones to use whilst bike riding. I don't like the large versions that cover your whole ear so I asked around. Someone suggested the meelectronics m6p so I had a look and bought them. Firstly postage was two days early which was obviously a nice surprise. The headphone packaging is neat and minimal. They provide 6 sets of sweat proof ear tips ranging from single to triple sized. You're bound to find a set that fit really well. The memory wire idea is nice and they seem to fit very well after a day though I don't know if that fit will stay the same over time. The little carry case is nice, as is the clip on the cable to clip it to clothes. The sound is great from a cheap pair of headphones and sounds much better than the price would suggest. The build quality is solid and looks to be long lasting. I'm glad I went with this pair over the others I looked at.
I recently purchased the M6 sport for gym use. I had the Sennheiser CX 3.00 (latest one) before that and absolutely loved the comfort and sound quality for the price. Unfortunately the Sennheisers gave up rather quickly (4-5 months). So I read reviews about good gym IEMs and got these.
First off sound quality is OK, the Sennheisers were much better in terms of soundstage and clarity, but I could have probably gotten used to the M6. My main issues with these is that I can't seem to get a proper fit. I've tried all the supplied eartips (yeah yeah I've watched the tutorial that is basically useless, too. This is for you, MEE customer support.), and when I actually do get a proper seal, It feels like this uncomfortable sort of "vacuum" and the sound nearly disappears - imagine playing music on your speakers in a room, getting out of it and closing the door - this is what it sounds like. With all my other headphones I've always used the standard (medium size) tips and have had no issues. When I do somehow get these to stay in properly and start training, things like moving my jaw or smiling drastically change the sound, which is incredibly annoying. You can also sometimes hear the drivers crackling, which makes these headphones feel like something you'd buy from the $1 store. When I go to the gym, I usually sweat A LOT, and these are the first headphones which actually act as a total sweat magnet. After 15 minutes of running I have sweat in both my ear canals, which has never happened with any other headphone I've owned.
I've also had other over-the-ear headphones (Vsonic GR-06) which were excellent and did not have any of the issues I described.
Have been using these earphones for over a year whilst daily commuting 50 miles each way up and down the M5. The rubber ear buds were very quickly replaced with a pair of Moldex ear buds as these sit further in the ear, help keep the phones in the ear and reduce external noise. Connected to a Pure DAB radio I can happily listen to radio stations at all speeds and not have to be deafened at low speed with sound levels needed to hear the radio at high speed. Admittedly the external noises are very much reduced but no more than when sat in the car with the stereo on. The sound quality is reasonable on a good sound system and they far outperform the PURE Move 2500 radio that they are usually connected to. Headphone cables are both strong and very flexible and although one of the strengthened sections that bends around the ear has started to fail I can sympathise as they get a daily dose of abuse. They will be replaced by another pair when these eventually fail.
It's that time of year when it's getting a bit warmer, and I can no longer rely on my running hat to keep my regular earbuds from falling out of my ears. With this in mind I decided to pick up some running specific headphones, and after scouring Amazon reviews I decided on the M6s. They seemed to be generally well received, and fairly priced.
After going for 2 runs in them, I am confident I have made a good choice.
Great sound Multiple ear canal fittings Nice case Clothing clip << which might not seem like much, but it's a nice touch to include one.
So far none. If anything detrimental happens down the line then I will of course amend this.
