Pros: Incredible value,Punchy bass, Fun sound signature, cable quality, comfortable , wide assortment of tips

Cons: Can be a pain to fit properly with the memory wire

 

Introduction:
 
MEElectronics is a name which most of the people interested in IEMs are already quite familiar with because of their great bang for the buck IEMs range and this one is one of them.

Accessories : 
 
1) 1 Shirt clip
2) 6 pairs of silicon ear tips (3 sizes Single Flanges, 1 Double Flange and 2 sizes of Triple Flanges)
3) Hard clamshell carrying case
 
Build Quality :
 
Packaging : Along with your headphones, the MEElectronics M6s ship with a carrying case, and six total sets of removable sleeves. The packaging looks sleek and simple. 
 
IEM:  At first glance, the MEElectronics M6 look much more expensive than their 30$ price tag. Most budget earphones opt for a reserved, simple look, but not here. The M6 earphones are very comfortably shaped, with large bodies that fit snugly into most ears and tips that go securely into the ear canal. To make them more secure, there are also flexible ear hooks built into the cables. The housings are made of plastic that feels rather durable
 
Cable:  The cable measures 1.4m and has the usual 3.5mm stereo plug on the end. A shirt clip features on the cable, which will reduce microphonic noise. The over-ear cables has a 2 inches of memory wire.
 
Microphonics: None unless you really really try. Excellent cable.
 
Comfort: Due to the housing and the memory cable, getting it to fit and seal properly is a pain. It needs some time to experiment with tips and insertion technique. Comply T400 is an expensive alternative, but comfort would be vastly improved.
 
Isolation: Perfect fit makes it a major noise isolating IEM. Triple Flanges improves the isolation considerably
 
Sound Quality:
 
Amped / unamped: Not much of a difference, these are drived easily by even low power sources
 
Bass: Lows are M6's Strong points. Good deep low bass but not several tons of it. These feel so much lighter to listen toIt’s there deep and low but no great hump of it rising toward the midbass range. This mid-bass hump gives a good overall balance, has great impact and body
 
Mids: Mids are much cleaner with a slight V shape. They are very evenly balanced in quantity to the highs and lows. Not too dry, not too wet. They sometimes get too sibilant at first. Burn-in compensates it somehow.
 
Highs: Many complain that M6's Highs are unbearable and too harsh. This is completely due to the fit. They arent that bad even though its their weakness.  They are pretty much spot on in the quantity that should be here and they are detailed nicely
 
Soundstage: As usual for a dynamic it’s pretty good. I’d place these as better than average with decent airyness.
 
Final Conclusion :  
 
In short words, they are fun, cheap and sound great for the money. They are Great performers on trance and electronic music. Works great with gym and running. They are perfect for a budget bass head. Taken as an entire package, M6 is just a bang-for-buck at its price with good accessories for the price.
