post #4996 of 7319

The meelecs are great for gifts and I always get in on the mee what fun. Of course, most meelecs aren't anything special but for this money you can't go wrong, so I don't see why scores and reviews have to be discussed when we're talking about 12 bucks - I doubt someone is expecting a hi-fi sound from these (or at least I hope so). And yeah, most meelecs are pretty durable.

The last time Meelectronics had a deal (m6 and s6?) I recommended them to many friends. All are very happy including myself. They went with the armband and control models (s6?) and I got the cheaper m6 for the gym. It isolates surprisingly well even on the motorcycle and sound is amazing considering the m6 cost $16.

Don't! They have good warranty, just contact them and they will send you a replacement.

oh! I got the M6 during the easter sale as well, it is a wonderful iem and sounds great. ive got a couple of compliments from my friends as well, the clear color does look very nice c: although it takes a bit extra time to get on they dont fall off even when the wire snags on something. ill be getting two of these grab bags too!

I'm not saying this isn't a good deal, just saying there is a 75% chance of receiving a mediocre headphone for $20, just not trying to get peoples hopes up.

Just remember that they do this event to clear out old stick. Sure they throw in a few of the more desirable models as the proverbial 'carrot', but few will get those.
If you go in happy knowing you'll be getting the lower tier models, then you won't be disappointed.
I do these occasionally with plans to gift them.

Of course, but I don't think anyone goes in in hopes to score headphones belonging to Summit-Fi, so to say. For $11 you go in to score something you can throw around, with little to no worries about them breaking.

Anyone have deals on IEMS for 50-80 that's actually worth 80-150?

Exactly. I don't know why everyone else here is assuming those who are buying the deal are not aware of this smily_headphones1.gif

Not many of us here at Head-Fi would consider buying Scosche for headphones. But these are very good portable headphones with good build quality except for earcups which I believe the plastic to be a little thin. The headphones have a very good aluminum headband that needs to be bent for fitment. And you will probably have to replace the earpads for comfort's sake.

When you do the above for comfort you hopefully be rewarded with a fairly competent headphone. The SQ of this headphone really surprised me. It is fairly well balanced with maybe a mid-centric touch will good bass response (not bloated or and mid-bass bump as much as I can perceive). And the treble is decent with good extension. The headphones really need to burned-in for about three days to sound their best. The soundstage isn't the widest or deepest but these are supposed to be small portable headphones; instrument location is good and they are very efficient (no need for amplification).

I believe to be a very good value at Newegg's sale price.

Right, and I simply made my comment because, to me, the driver flex makes these worth nothing to me. I can't even turn my head without it being an issue with their stuff. If you are sensitive, steer clear of anything meelec unless you get something with BA. I have two pairs from former mee what deals that have sat in my desk drawer since the day I got them. I suppose I should just give them away.

 

Not dissing the company, I like the idea of their products, just saying it is an issue. I really like the design of the sport fis and really wanted to make them work for me. Instead I use the $6 pannys from amazon at the gym.

Creative Aurvana 3 are a pretty good set of dual-driver BA IEMs that retail for $150. 

 They are now $77 new or $47 used on Amazon. They have been as low as $60 new I believe, but still a good deal at this price!

 

I had them and the Shure SE425 at the same time and they were comparable (smooth, mid-centric)...

AFAIK these have consistently been the best deal out there for a dual-BA IEM
