[REVIEW] MEElectronics M-DUO: The Treasured IEMs Under $100 - Page 4

post #46 of 163

Well, it's been about 25 hours...  The bass hasn't settled too much, maybe a little.  The problem, unmentioned before, of sibilance still hasn't gone away.  Sibilance can be heard in both the vocals and upper treble, mainly with cymbals and clashes (the ch sound for the cymbals and the sh sound for vocals).  Still an aggressive little IEM that's pushing its limits.  It's got high points, but they don't come without the lows.

The sibilance can be tamed with the Comply T-400.

Great initial impressions. Mine are in transit and may arrive this week.
Are these able to be worn cable up? Does it come with ear hook guides?
Looking forward to future posts- subscribed!

edit: checked the product page, nope on the ear guides. But I got an extra pair lying around...

Yes. You can wear them worn over the ear.

Mine arrived today. Though I asked about being worn cable up, they seem better fit worn cable down due to the angle the strain relief protrudes from the housing.
Currently trying the biflange tips. Pretty comfortable. I like the built in cable cinch.
Initial impression on sound is along the lines described. To my ears, bass is strong and tight (you can feel some rumble but it doesn't steal the show), mids seem in line with the other ranges (even though the posted FR graph shows a U-curve) and highs have some energy without being piercing(I do not hear much sibilance). The sound signature really jives with my preference.
I'm really enjoying the M-Duo even before burn-in! I hope the sound doesn't change much after 40hrs...

Hey all,

 

I got a my pair Monday(got them through the MEE what promotion) and my first impressions are almost exactly inline with everybody else.  I've really enjoyed them thus far.  Great, detailed bass and nice clarity.  I also hear the sibilance mentioned, but it isn't that much of a problem for me.  I haven't had much luck with wearing them over the ear either, they are pretty large and the strain relief angle makes it awkward.  The only thing I'd add is that I had a problem getting a good fit with the supplied tips.  Double flange were too small for me and I could never get a good seal with the triple flange, plus it felt like they were sticking a mile out of my ear.  No luck with the medium and large silicon tips, either uncomfortable or no seal.  I found a pair of large Sony Hybrids and they are working perfectly for me...which is kinda weird because I normally use the mediums.  Anyway, also order a pair of comply's to try out as mentioned above.

 

All in all, I'm impressed with this IEM.  They are definitely satisfying my bass needs but without overwhelming everything else.  Lots of fun.

Try Comply foam tips. Similar sound signature, better fit. It has to be the T-400, BTW.

Has there been any comparison to the Brainwavz R1? And I assume people are aware of their soon to come R3s, a new dual dynamic (I guess the Vsonic naming protocol is starting to catch on...). I found the closing sections of Raz' post amusing: 

 

Specs:

Thats for later :)

The price:

Its not final yet, but it will be a lot more than the R1 and more than the M3, but less than the B2.'

 

Maybe we should start a pool on what the price actually ends up to be... 'a lot more, more, but less' pretty much narrows it down. Says they're aiming to launch them later this month or in July. 

 

And congrats to jww187 on the MeeWhat win. Optimistically strategic, I placed two orders, got two M9Ps. Hard to complain, though - they are perfect for proselytizing to the non-believers. Can I get an amen?

Yes to that. Also, I don't have the R1, but I am aiming for the R3 soon, so I'll do a comparison soon.

Two thumbs up for the T-400s.  Much more comfortable and perfect seal.  Sibilance is also gone.

Is this a worthy upgrade to the VRSonic GR06 if you pay full price for it?

Missed the offer :(

They work out £10 less then the RE-400s. 

I only listen to Trance and House music.

They are definitely worth the upgrade from the GR06. The bass is fuller, the mid range is crisp and clean, a little dry. The treble is plenty with a tad bit of sibilance until near 50 hours of Burn In. The Soundstage is definitely bigger and better. There is some distinct Instrument Separation. The detail is pretty good and yes, it excels in-comparison to the GR06. Excellent choice for under $100. The RE400 is obviously a better choice when it comes to midrange and treble, unless you're a treble head. I'm not sure about the bass though.

Thanks.

I do like bass but not like beats. 

I am interested in the Meele EDM IEMs that are out in August. Specially made for EDM music so should be perfect for me.

Okay. Then go for that.
