Package Type: Standard Packaging
Quick Review:

Aesthetics: Questionable. Nicely finished would not sure how it'd be accepted amongst general population. Looks nice and is very similar to my skin tone plus it has a nice earthy feel 4/5

Packaging: Eh. Comes with zipper pouch/bag, cord wrap, a bunch of extra tips including flanged tips. Also includes and Airplane style stereo to bi-mono splitter (1 tip to two) which is pretty useless. But it has the same extras as their entry-level products. Plastic box could be made better. 3/5

Sound:

-Wood: Yes it really does make a sound difference. It adds richness that I've been looking for. I have tried multiple headsets from multiple manufactures including other ones from MeElectronics and the wood causes the sound to be projected at you instead of smashed into your ears. Headphones often make sound uncomfortable by making it seem the sound is too close, this does the opposite. 4/5 (no benchmarks to compare to)

-Lows: This WAS built for an amazing bass. Especially a perfect headphone for me to test considering my new found love for Dubstep. 5/5

-Mids and Highs: Listened to some songs again using these headphones and I caught many things that I missed on previous listens. One thing I love about it is that I don't have to raise the volume to get better quality and that good sound quality is there no matter the volume. 4/5

Pricing: $40 from their website, $30 from Amazon plus they tweet deals all the time. I think its beyond worth it at $40 considering I think they are better than my Sure SE115 priced at $90 4/5

Conclusion: Great headphones at the price. I was difficult in the subcatagories but all in all this headphone + company makes a 5-star headphone. The wood adds a lot to the sound quality. Good newish company to give a try out.

The R1s sound is warm and bass heavy. mids and highs are there but almost not enough. fit is excellent for me. I haven't experienced any ear fatigue or dicomfort and I've slept in them. I use the double flanged tips and they fit very tight. Sound isolation isn't quite as good as the sennheiser 300s or j3s but very good. The 90 degree jack is a def plus if u keep ur music player in your pocket.It fits tight to your device. Cable has a plastic coating on it which helps with tangles and also makes it nice if you run the wire up your back. doesn't stick like the rubbery cords. The wood makes them aesthetically unique.
I have so many earbuds tho these don't get used often. I prefer the sound of my sennheisers and j3s better. The R1's hang with em in the bass department but loose out a little with the mids and highs. They're a little muddy, almost fuzzy sounding and are no where near the clarity of my klipsch image s4s but they are less than half the price.
If you are looking for eye rattling bass the skullcandy skullcrusher cans can't be beat. But for in ear buds these thump with the best of em. The j4s and skullcandy riots have excellent bass also. But my favorite all around in ear is my beloved j3s. They just have everything, great sound,comfort and noise isolation.
In conclusion these R1s are well worth $30 bucks. I was not disappointed

Meelectronics R1 is a perfect IEM for Bass Lovers, With the recent price drop, this is a steal for bass heads. R1 has been redesgined and updated from the initial version and is very much improved a lot in terms of SQ.

A complete review on R1 :

Accessories : My purchase had a pretty good set of accessorries though the official website doesnt show some of them, My R1 package came with:
1) 1 Shirt clip (Attached with the IEM itself)
2) 4 pairs of Clear silicon ear tips (3 sizes Single Flanges, 1 Double Flange )-
3) Hard clamshell carrying case- Pretty hard case on the outside with good soft material on inside making earphones secure to carry on the go
4) Cable Winder - Made of rubber, makes portability better
5) Airplane Adapter

Build Quality : Housing is made up of coated bright colored wood. Cable has a L-Plug, similar to the meelec M6,M9 cables but more durable and is a bit microphonic.

Isolation : Average when compared to other Meelec IEMs, But isolates a lot whenused with Small single flange tips as the houses just blocks out the noise.

Comfort: Most might find that Small sized tips much comfortable. Other sized tips might not be comfortable, since the bulge of the housing makes it uncomfortable, using comply tips might just solve it

Sound Quality:

Signature: Bass oriented Signature, mostly warm type

Lows: Very deep, smooth and warmness gives a good punch to it

Mids: Not much clear or detailed, slightly recessed, thin sounding than Meelec M6/9, mids might not be much prominent as it is warm. Though, lower mids are smooth, full and balanced, Upper mid range frequencies are harsh

Highs: Not much of treble, enough of it though.

I currently own a pair of ME Electronics M21P and I can definitely say there is a noticeable sound difference with the R1s. Cleaner, deeper bass and consistent sharp highs as with the MEE brand. Love the thicker cord which should be a standard with earphones/headphones next to flat cables. Don't know why people would rate these below 4 but bear in mind it can take time for your ears to adjust to the sound and the burn-in varies so give them time. MEE did an execellent job on these!!
