“About Me I am a 52 year old audophile, from Bradenton Florida. I have been in this hobby, for about two years. The sound from headphone blew me away, and I dived down the proverbial rabbit hole and have not come back up. I use headphones to cope with pain from a back injury. Furthermore headphones allow me to hear the sound, without out side distractions....” --reddog
“I got some of these based on their crazy-good reputation. Even for the $6 I paid I feel ripped off. Worst pair I can remember. What in the world is everyone talking about? These are so gaudy looking, and feel cheaply put together. I could overlook those things if they sounded like everyone says. But they don't. I can't remember disliking the sound quality of an IEM this much. These are just...” --SethDove
“ Monoprice MHP-839 the budget performer *Note, this review also applies to the Kicker HP541 which is a rebrand of the same headphone. So I have both reviews with the non-model-specific info simply copy & pasted. Same headphone! A couple of us here on Head-Fi were looking for some budget performers that could compete with higher end headphones that are constantly being...” --MalVeauX
“So I am fairly new to the audio world. The Monoprice 8323 was my second purchase on starting to get into headphones (after Superlux HD681 EVOs). I have had these headphones for about 6 months now. First the bad things about them. The cables and pads are the let downs in terms of build quality. There are two cables. The first is really long and cheap feeling. It also has pretty bad...” --93EXCivic
“ -Introduction- I review a lot of budget earphones in the $30–$60 range. It’s not uncommon for me to review an earphone in this price range that’s lauded as a giant-killer, only to be severely disappointed in it’s lackluster performance. The 11 Neo challenges the notion that budget earphones need to be compromised in order to deliver both a dynamic listening experience and a solid...” --Cinder
“ These IEM's arent the greatest. But these ARE the greatest for $5!! Seperation is great, Clarity is great, Detail is great! Bass is superb! Doesnt muddle out the highs and mids. This is the best buds that ive had for just $5! A reminder, these arent audiophile IEM's, but because if the price, they are probably the best IEM's out there! ” --Ezio
“I purchased these a long time ago after reading reviews that these were a good budget option in the earphone category. To save time, i am just going to jump in to the sound quality section.. Bass: A little bass light for my tastes, but i can live with it. I doubt people are going to complain with these at the price they are offered at. It has decent punch to it, but like i said, a...” --zach8278
“Expanding on the pros, other likes- - These cans are pretty comfortable imo, with the velour pads and soft headband. I havent had any problems with pressure points on the headband, and have been able to wear them for several hours on end without much fatigue. Clamping force is just right. Tighter than, for example, a Creative Aurvana Live, but looser than my FA-011s. Fairly light weight. -...” --kidcharlemagne
The latest in the Classics series, the Meze 12 doesn’t reveal itself immediately. The walnut wood housing changes, slightly, over time in tone and contrast. Its mystery isn’t quick to vanish. The signature sound of a Meze, on the other hand, is and will be unchanged.
These circumaural headphones include a 49 inch removable detachable audio cable with in-line controller and microphone, heavily padded headband and soft leatherette ear pads, 40 mm neodymium drivers and comes with a semi-hard storage case. Monoprice claims a 102 dB/mW sensitivity, 32 Ohms at 1 kHz, 99 dB maximum, 20 Hz to 20 kHz and Apple MFi certification. There is a one year replacement...
