Sunrise SW-Xcape or MEElectronics A151?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Which of the two would you recommend? I mostly plan to use it on-the-go, so sound quality, comfort, and isolation are probably the priority for me. Price isn't really too much of a factor since they are in the same range. biggrin.gif

I've read the reviews and such around for both, but I haven't seen many comparisons of the two. Does anyone have any recommendations? Thanks for your help!

According to ljokerl, the A151 might be more user-friendly, but the Xcape ultimately sounds better...

I haven't heard the Xcape, but the A151 isolate quite well.

 

I imagine A151 will last you longer too since they seem pretty well built.

I just got the A151.  It is indeed well built.  Also, I can say that it sounds very good and has a lot of accessories to get you going.

 

I know that other people are having problem with the build quality of the Sunrise.  Just look at the Sunrise Xcape V2 thread.

 

In the deals thread someone has stated that at buy.com the A151 can be had for $49.99.  It regualary sells for 74.99.

 

I would recommend it.  Good luck in your search!

I was going to mention that too, but the deal is no longer available...

I had te Sunrise V.1's and they sounded amazing, but the build quality wasnt great, and lost hearing in one ear by the 2nd-3rd month. Tried re wiring them myself and got no-where. So I bought the A151's and the quality sound is up to par but not as good as the Sunrise's. Build aspect though, they seem much better (speaking of A151's).
