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.
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.

Build Quality: 10/10
For its cost the build quality is much better than many of the more mainstream brands, the wires are thicker and the shell is made out of aluminium. The thick wires also make the M9-SL tangle free.
Comes with hard clamshell case for extra protection, shirt clip (can be annoying though), single-(3 sizes) and bi-flange silicone tips
Sound: 8/10 (for price) 6/10 (in general)
The soundstage is considerable wide and they sound quite airy. Bass is strong but can be excessive at times. Great clarity for the price.
Absolutely brilliant for the price, sometimes I use them over my Shure SE215LTD cause they are super cheap and I wouldn't mind if they break. This is too good for its price.
However, do they live up to the "great" sound quality that many reviewers have stated before? I don't think so.
As you can see from the picture previews, this impressive MEElectronics package comes with many accessories.
I was thoroughly impressed upon opening the package myself, finding metal housing on the earphones, and a
relatively tangle-free cable with little microphonics.
The clam shell is a big plus in my book because I'm a frequent traveler and I like to keep my earphones protected
and not jumbled up with other gadgets I may have in my laptop case.
My good impressions stop there, however.
I plugged these into my phone first to test out a few familiar tracks (EDM / Pop).
It's amazing how this little bullet shell can pump out so much bass. In fact, with a flat EQ setting, all I could hear was bass and lots of it. Bleeding all over through the mids followed by an incredibly unbearable ringing of the treble.
I am not making this statement because I'm a neutral-maniac. I certainly love bass. Deep and controlled bass is what gives me passion for the EDM genre. This earphone, however, is nothing out of the ordinary when it comes to earphones in this price range, with the exception of its accessories.
Different genres such as dubstep, hip hop, R&B, trance, etc, did not change my opinion of the sound quality.
Bringing down the sub bass frequencies (20~50 Hz) helped stop the endless pummeling of bass.
Then, bringing up the mids (200~1000Hz) brought some life back to the vocals and instrumentals.
However, even with various EQ settings, I could never get these earphones to playback tracks in a satisfying
crunch and crispness of other comparable earphones. Not to mention that the sound-stage is nonexistent. There is a big 'dip' in the frequency spectrum that these earphones refuse to play.
Fine, then I refuse to put these back on.
Besides the accessories and build quality, these earphones have nothing impressive about them.
If you are looking into these earphones for sound quality, then look elsewhere.
After three months, the left side no longer produced any sound. As I had bought another pair of MEElectronics earbuds at the time, I hoped this was an isolated incident. Unfortunately, the other pair of headphones from MEElectronics also wore out in about three months. Either I abuse headphones (which I doubt as I have a pair of JVCs that have worked for years), or MEElectronics makes some brittle headphones.
Bottom line: If you can afford to throw away a pair of headphones after a few months, these certainly produce good sound quality.
