In-ear design effectively isolates you from outside sounds allowing you to hear your music clearly at lower volumes which can protect you from hearing loss.

5 Sets of Ear Tips

Five sets of ear tips give you more variety to find one that works best for your ears. Ear tips include: Standard bi-flange tips that fit most ears and three sizes of standard silicone ear tips, plus large triple-flange tips.

Achieve Perfect Fit and Seal

In-Ear Fit Guide

The MEE A151 earphone is an over-the-ear earphones that may take several minutes to get the A151 positioned for the best sound. Sound quality and bass response are dependent on the seal achieved between the ear tips and your ear canal. Adjusting how the cable is positioned, insertion angle, as well as choosing the right tips are important for comfort and getting a proper seal. If you do not hear much bass, you do not have a good seal. If the treble sounds harsh, the earphone requires a deeper insertion. 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. Note: different ear tips may change the sound you hear due to how deep they insert and how well they seal. Usually tips with more flanges offer better isolation.

Using the Cable

Loop the cable over your ear first so that the A151 will have the right angle for earphone insertion. The cable is designed to be flexible and will softly curve to the shape of your ear. Repeatedly bending the cable at sharp angles will break the cable.

Earphone Insertion

Each earphone is marked with a R for right and L for left channels. The MEE A151 channels are not swappable due to its angled design. Moistening your ear tips may make insertion easier. Pulling the upper part of your ear (helix) up and back while inserting your earphone opens your ear canal during insertion, which may improve your ability to get a deep insertion at the proper angle.

If you are still having issues, or if you feel that your earphone just does not sound as you think it should, please contact MEElectronics for more 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.

Style Name: Without Mic Verified Purchase
Pros:

Tight, controlled bass
Very good isolation, much better than my previous SoundMagic PL-30s
Detailed highs, not a lot of sparkle, no sibilance,
it's not fatiguing -> treble is not super bright, it's well-presented and doesn't extend uncomfortably high
Soundstage is good -> Well-separated, accurate, though it's not HUGE
Cable is braided -> thick, solid, tight
Little to no cable noise -> microphonics is very low if worn around the ear
Includes nice amount of silicone tips, 5 in all

Cons:

Bass-light: not for you if you like hip-hop, rap, heavy metal, bass-heavy stuff.

Nit-pick: I'm not really a fan of the mirror finish, since I believe it might attract curious wild-life some day. Though, it just might save my life if I get stranded on a desert island and need to signal a passing air vehicle. Hmmmmmm...

Overall I am pretty happy with my purchase. I'd give these a 4.5/5 "officially". I've had them about two weeks and they've held up well so far. If anything happens quality-wise, I'll be sure to update my review accordingly.

Sidenote: To get the highest quality sound out of any in-ear headphone, a good seal between the ear and the tip of the headphone is crucial. Without a good seal, you might as well stuff standard iPod earbuds in your ear canal. Keep this in mind if this is your first set of IEMs.

UPDATE: March 24, 2012: Through normal use, they are still holding up well. I have been having problems with the stock silicone tips, though. They are ok, but they never could stay in my ears for more than 10-15 minutes without needing re-positioning or readjusting. I recently bought some Comply T-100 foam tips. They make the A151 sound THAT much better.

First things first, if you're the kind of person who's always complaining that all your headphones don't have enough bass, these headphones are not for you. That's not to say that the A151s lack bass, but just that they're not particularly bass-heavy headphones. Now that that's out of the way, I'll try to give an idea of how the A151s sound. I'm not a professional, so just bear with me here. First off, what these headphones really excel in is in detail. When you're listening to a song with them, you can easily pick out individual instrument lines from the music. Especially on some songs from bands like Fleetwood Mac and Pink Floyd, the overlapping guitar parts can really easily be distinguished. If you listen hard enough, you can even hear details you never heard before. It's really pretty cool. As for the sound, it's generally pretty balanced, without any frequencies that overpower the others. As I mentioned before, the bass is not huge, and doesn't go down to like the super rumbling frequencies you can't really hear, but is adequate for most music. At first, the bass might sound a little grainy, but this goes away with usage. Another note is that some vocals may sound slightly muffled, but it's only noticeable on certain tracks. However, because it's not as good with super low bass, it might not be a good choice for electronic music like dubstep. The sound works well, however, with rock music, or any music that uses actual instruments... Now, a note about the fit: These headphones are meant to be worn with the cord looped over the ear, which accounts for the design. This eliminates pretty much all the noise that you get from the cord rubbing against clothing and stuff, so a big plus.Read more ›

Read alot of positive reviews about these but I don't think the sound is for me. Speakers and headphones are very subjective. One persons pleasure is another's poison. Some like alot of bass. Some alot of detail. Some folks prefer a more neutral sound. My other set of earphones are from Denon but I can't remember the model. They're no longer made but are the dynamic type and cost approx. $30.

The MEElectronics A151's are the first armature type earphones I've tried.

First off, you have to get used to putting these in your ears properly. Once you get used to that it's not a problem. Just takes a little bit more time. That being said they are pretty comfortable. They were even more so when I switched to the Sony Hybrid earbuds (Highly recommended). I can wear these for a long time without any irritation.

Construction is well made. The wiring is great and the ear pieces look nice and sturdy. Unlike some people I like the straight jack a opposed to a right-angled one.

Now for the sound. Definite difference in sound signature from the Denon dynamic types. If you're a bass head don't even think about these. You will find yourself playing with the EQ to get more bass. Yes, the bass is there and finely defined but not real deep. These are more detailed than the Denons but to my ears more on the bright side. Sort of like the music is being played in a room with lots of glass windows. I find I get listener fatigue pretty quickly and find myself turning the volume down lower and lower the longer I listen. I also found myself playing with the equalizer for a tad more bass even though I'm not a bass head but some music you just want to "feel" more rather than worrying about whether the bass is accurate or not.
