post #1216 of 22848

My A161s are on the way.  FWIW, I'm very happy with the value I get from the A151s...a good all-rounder for $30.  Based on ljokerl's review (excerpts below), I'm expecting a step up in the experience for almost the same price I paid for the A151s.

 

 

(2B10) Fischer Audio SBA-03 / MEElectronics A161P

The SBA-03 is an impressive all-around performer, not just ‘for a single BA’ or ‘at its price point’, but overall. The bass is fast and resolving, as expected from a BA-based earphone, but it is also surprisingly punchy, even aggressive at times. Impact is greater than with the Etymotic ER-4S and ACS T15 but not quite a match for the VSonic GR07 or Fischer's own dual-dynamic Tandem.

 

Value (8.5/10) - When a mid-level earphone performs as well as this one does, it draws comparisons with top-tier earphones, as in the review above, and those rarely play in its favor. The SBA-03, however, holds its own in many ways against higher-end products from the likes of JVC, ACS, and VSonic.

Here is a review from another member that will probably give you all you need to know and more.

 

But a short summary that I snipped from his comments, "The overall sound is warm, mid-forward, and quite subdued in the treble...that makes for a pleasant but not neutral listen "

I got the A161P when they were $40 during CM. Shipping wasn't free though. But yeah they are excellent IEMs with beautiful and detailed mids and punchy bass. The cable is microphonic and looks kind of fragile though.

MEElec A161.

 

Pretty neutral. You should consider what kind of sound you like. It wasn't my cup of tea, although I like to pull them out now and then.

 

If you like a euphonic, romantic sound, probably not for you. Can be stiff sounding and not terribly involving with a lesser source. To my ears, other phones let the music breathe more.

 

Can't emphasize enough using them with a high quality source, though. They can sound rather decent with a good source.

 

Still, a good value at the sale price.
