Another nice feature is the single cable, better for moving about. And they fold as well. I tested them with several tracks from my headphone test playlist (Buena by Morphine, Hotel California from Eagles' Hell Freezes Over Tour, Cassandra Wilson vocals, etc.), and the HT-21s can handle it all with aplomb. What's most impressive is the price-to-performance ratio. Hard to believe these phones can be found for as low as $30 on sale. That's really a no-brainer, if you need a pair of on-the-go phones and don't want to drop too much cash. Of course, you can use them at home as well. I only wish they made an HT-21P version, with controls for an iPhone/smartphone. Is that coming MEE?
The 5-star rating is a context rating. Are they on par with the Grados? Not for at-home listening. But for the price (and maybe even high, in the $60-70 range), the HT-21s are tough to beat.
First, I'd like to thank the folks at MEElectronics for sending me an HT-21 sample for review.
MEElectronics is one of my favorite manufacturers of IEMs. Seeing how far they've come in such a short time (it was only a year ago when I was reviewing their M9P, which I bought on a whim after reading a bit about them) is rather inspiring. This is a company that has gone from one with only a few truly compelling products to one with many, catering to just about any budget. MEElectronics has previously limited their product line to in ear monitors but now, they have taken their first step into the portable headphone market with the HT-21.
So, does their first portable headphone perform well enough to be worth note or does it simply trip up right out of the gate? Read on to find out.
Packaging and Accessories
The HT-21 arrives in a fairly standard cardboard box with a plastic window, allowing buyers to see the headphones. Inside, a plastic insert holds the headphones in place and underneath it lies a black carrying pouch, a welcome addition given their portable nature.
Design and Build Quality
The HT-21s are a good deal smaller than I was expecting. The earphones fold flat and the earcups fold in, toward the headband, to make them easier to carry. Their diminutive size does mean that they give up a bit in terms of build quality for the sake of being so easily portable. My review sample actually arrived slightly damaged, as you can see in the picture below, with part of the headband leading into the right earcup missing. I imagine this is a rare manufacturing defect though, and doesn't impact their performance or wearability, at least in my case.Read more ›
Sound quality is a subjective thing. Reviews of headphones should be treated with some suspicion, but it is safe to say here that I agree with other reviews - these are a great pair of headphones for their price. They have a clear, open sound that mimics more expensive headphones. I own both Sennheiser PX 100's and iGrado's, and these are the ones I use everyday. If you are looking for an emphasized low end (aka "Beats") these are not the headphones for you. Given their modest cost, they do a good job of reproducing music well.
Both the SennHeiser and iGrado headphones are open back, versus the HT-21's closed back design. The open back design lets in more ambient sound, and have more sound leakage (people can hear what you are listening to). From a comfort standpoint, the iGrado's feel like one is wearing a vise grip on their head compared to these, which fit well but stay in place fairly well - not necessarily the best headphones for a workout, but certainly good enough for walking to work.
These come with a vinyl bag that in my case was quickly lost. They have survived well in my laptop bag with a minimum of care; I fold them up and they are ready to go. Everything is nicely made and doesn't have a flimsy feel that belies their ultimately inexpensive price.
When I got these, I was impressed by the build quality and the look. Then I started to burn these in over the next several days (some examples of musical choices include the Purple Rain Soundtrack, Public Enemy's It takes a nation of millions to hold us back, and some Bach).
The vocals were sick, a perfect balance of tone. Hip hop worked without being ridiculous, and the headphones didn't wear on me after hours of use. Not the kind of headphones that won't bleed out what you are listening to, but all around, for what i paid for thEm, best money I've spent on headphones.
