I was skeptical at first when I saw the A151s going for around $50 at buy.com because I bought the M6Ps based on the glowing reviews I read here but was utterly disappointed by their performance. However, buy.com's generous 45-day return policy got me and I am so glad I pulled the trigger on these!
The cardboard looks much classier than the plain old all transparent plastic boxes.
The cable is awesome. Light, soft, flexible, no microphonics whatsoever.
Great strain relief.
Comfortable (I use the small silicon tips)
The sound is...for me, just right. Not too dark and grand like the IE7s, not too sparkly and artificial like the TF10s, not too bright and sibilant like the UE700s, and not too boomy and passionate like the MTPCs.
It's like they took whatever frequency range the UE700s were emphasizing too much on and pulled it down a bit. These are very stable and mature sounding, detailed, and clear, always calm, and knows what they are doing. Mids and vocals are definitely not as smooth or sweet as the UEs but they are still well presented (that's the only shortcoming I picked out), and the A151s more than make it up with better separation and soundstage (than the UE700s)
Anyway, Meelectronics' got a fan out of me with the A151s. Still no love for the M6Ps though. But bravo for their first BA driver IEM! They are a bargain at the price buy.com was offering, but they are well worth the MSRP!
Please come share your appreciations for these awesome budget high value high quality IEMs!
