Hi,
I'm looking for cheap IEM's (no more than 30 USD). Are there any of similar design to the Meelectronic M6 Sports / Audiofly AF56? I really don't want to break the bank, but I'm also looking for a good design. The only prior earbuds I've owned are Apple earbuds and store-bought earbuds. Thanks in advance.

Get the meelectronics m6 pro for $50:

$30 more than the m6, but more than worth it for the detachable cables alone. Just be careful not to lose the earbuds when you are out and about. Here are some user reviews:

One of the best buys for the the price. I use these on a regular basis and they have done a great job so far.

What's the difference between the M6 sports and the M6 pros? I'm not really looking to spend a lot of money on these buds. How big of a difference in quality are they?


Unless you damage the earbud sockets connecting to the cables of the M6 pro, the cable replacement will cost probably $30, which will be one-and-a-half M6 Sports. Considering how many M6 sports you will go through before replacing the M6 pro cable, which is 4 M6 sports IMO (3 driver-to-cable disconnects and 1 frayed cable), it will pay for itself and have better sound quality to boot.
