Achieve Perfect Fit and Seal

In-ear Fit Guide

Sound quality and bass response are dependent on the seal achieved between the ear tips and your ear canal. Please try the various sizes of ear tips included with your earphone to determine which gives you the best sound and comfort. The sound may change depending on the insertion depth and tip size.

To achieve proper insertion, pull up and back on the top of your ear (helix) and/or use a slight bit of lubrication/moisture on the outer part of the ear tips, which will help achieve the proper insertion depth and angle. If you feel your MEE earphones do not have bass or sound tinny, the fit and/or seal is more than likely problematic. You can visit the MEElectronics online product manual for more information and assistance.

Burn-In

Many owners have stated that the sound may improve with use when compared to the out of the box sound. This change in sound will occur with normal listening and is not necessary; however you can accelerate this process by playing music at a normal volume continuously for the first several days.

Have these headphones for about 10 months now. The sound is impressive for such a low price also good strong connectors and minimal cord resonance. Bundled in the package were a assortment of ear plugs a semihard case and cord caddy. Much more than you would expect for the price. If you purchase these you will be pleasently surprised at the sound and quality.

I've bought 2 pairs of these at a low price and loved the sound of them ONLY after I burned them in for a day or two. After roughly a month, the earphones on one of the sides will stop working. I blame the L shaped aux cord going into my iphone. Since the iphone is in my pocket, the cord would get tugged and mess up. Definitely great for a computer, terrible for devices in the pocket.

WEEKS of Research Came to THIS!!!

Best Sub $20 Headphones on Amazon!!!!

These MEELECTRONICS M9-SL offers tons of bang for the buck! After researching for weeks on head-fi.org (a trusted audiophile forum), amazon.com, and other sites, I decided to take the plunge and order these; I could not be happier. I ordered three different pairs of $10-$20 competing earphones, earbuds, IEM's or whatever you want to call them from amazon because I could not decide which ones to get after countless hours of review. I decided to order the following earbuds from amazon with free shipping:

1. MEElectronics M9-SL Hi-Fi Sound-Isolating In-Ear Headphones (Silver) $13

2. JVC Marshmallows $15

3. Ultimate Ears 100 Sound Isolating Earbuds (Branded by Logitech) $10

In addition to ordering these three I already own a pair of:

Sennheiser CX300's, Sennheiser HD280PRO's, Panasonic Fitness behind ear phones, and countless pairs of crappy apple earbuds. I generally listen to MP3's, FLAC , or other Lossless music sources and have a FiiO E6 headphone amp (mainly for the HD280 Pros).

My music sources are : iPhone 4, iPod 2nd Gen, iPod Dell Laptop, and Macbook Pro.

The M9's sound amazing and are only rivaled by my HD280's which are full size headphones!!! They sound full, pure, crisp, and accurate and at this price point cannot be beaten!

I highly recommend!!

These are a great pair of IEMs for the price (and are highly regarded value IEMs over at Head-Fi). I picked them up after misplacing my last pair of JBuds J2 IEMs (which I bought because I misplaced my JVC Marshmallows) right before my trip to Asia, and was glad that I did. These managed to block out most of the noise of the flight, and because they come with a two-prong adapter plug, you can use them on planes in place of the cruddy headphones the airlines give you too! Also included in the package are a total of 4 ear tips (try them all, they sound and fit different), a cable winder, and a carrying case, making it a awesomely concise little travel package.

The sound (to my not-overly discerning ears) was great, though I did subject it to a 40-50 hour music burn-in before I even used them. The cabling looks good, and seems much more durable than any other IEMs I've used to date. One issue I do have though (and I consider it part of sound) is with the microphonics (hearing vibrations through the IEMs, a la stethoscopes), which can be pretty bad depending on how you wear these. If you wrap them over and behind your ears, this helps reduce the noise a lot, and even more so if you use the clip on the wires. But wear these under a hood, or have the wires tunnel under a jacket, and you can still hear all the vibrations.

So I was the type of person that always bought the [...] pair of earbuds simply to be able to listen to my music. Well, let's just say that I was only "hearing" the music before, not "listening" to it. I am hearing things in MANY songs that I was unaware of before! And if your into bass (of course without your heart vibrating), then these are for you! I have heard so many songs with bass (low frequency) that have such better sound now than they did before. I have recently just turned to actually enjoying ALL the sounds coming from music, and I listen to all kinds of music. From hip-hop and R&B to Country and Rock n Roll, they all sound better! I cannot compare it to those [...]+ earbuds or headsets, but these are definitely amazing! They initially retailed around [..], and now are [...]!!! That's just crazy for the quality you get with these.

As for the physical nature of them, as others have stated, they have a very unique cable to them, with a braided cord looking very sturdy! The extra sizes and types of earbuds are awesome too, but I just stick with the normal medium sized ones. The double buds feel a little uncomfortable after lengthy use, but they would probably work great when exercising, although I just use the medium normal ones for that too.

I just can't say enough about the sound in these! Not only do they sound REALLY great, they also block out a ton of sound! I had a flight coming up, so I wanted to wait until after it was over to truly review these. I kid you not when I say I was in the same row as a crying, screaming 2 year old!!!! But low and behold, just a simple volume turn up (not too much) almost completely drowned out the kid! I was amazed at how well it blocked out the sound! If you can handle VERY loud music (I have sensitive ears so I like to keep it at medium levels), then you can definitely drown out ANY background noise if you wanted.

All in all, one of the best electronic purchases I have had in a while, 10/10!
