I bought six pairs of the Meelectronics M2's just before Christmas ($6.99 each on sale ) and one pair of the M6's ($9.99 on sale) just to try them out and because I had heard good things... I wanted my friends to have decent IEM's. I am AMAZED at how good these things sound for as cheap as they are. When you pair them with a little amp, they can pretty much compete in the big(er) leagues. They really do need amplification to shine, but when they do, they REALLY do. I always like to have spare pairs of IEM's in case of emergency, so I am giving these a hearty recommendation. Just remember that without the amplification they are not so impressive (as one would expect with under $10 phones) but with the amp they can compete with Etys and my Atrios even. The main thing is they blow their price-range-competitors out of the water, such as the sony ex-70's or 90's etc, the sharp MD33's and certainly the JVC marshmallows. These all sound god-awful compare to these little MEE gems. If you are looking for spare, cheap, tolerable backup IEM's, these are your men.
