Looks like an enhanced MEELEC M6 up close. I'll get a close up within the next hour. 



Wish they would get rid of that annoying memory cord. That was one of the reasons why I hated my M6.

      They were thinking about fixing the Memory Cord problem for several months and it's probably resolved in this series.

"...Featuring memory wire for a locked-in fit..." I think not.

      I'm pretty sure that's what anyone would want. A locked in fit to prevent the S6 from falling out. Right?

If anything, just use the cable guides that they're soon going to release later this year. It'll be useful for memory cable problems.

It also prevents a lot of people from getting a proper fit and in many cases prevents the M6 from staying on.

It's useless if the memory wire's still there. That thing could probably bend the guides out of shape.

      If it has better flexibility like the cable itself, then it should be somewhat better than the M6.

If they stop using wires altogether and actually gave the cord memory characteristics then it would better than the M6. I cannot help but compare these wires to paper clips.

MEELEC has also mentioned:

Externally the housing is similar to the M6 (aside from the color scheme) but it has been sealed for better moisture proofing and has new hydrophobic nozzle filters.

Funny thing was my M6 did end up falling apart. I didn't bother notifying MEElec customer support about it though. Hydrophobic nozzle filters? Metal is prone to rust, paper is prone to decay... so... plastic?

     My M6 is still intact. Also, I guess it wasn't reinforced enough. It's possible for that to happen.

More from MEELEC for the S6:

No change to the drivers - any acoustic differences will come from the filters.

I'm guessing metal filters or something. If they do use paper then I would consider that a step backwards.

With respect to the OP, let's keep the speculations of any new Meelec offerings in the respective Meelec thread(s) please.
