Form and Function
Black housings with chrome accents are complimented by a lightweight and flexible twisted cable, making microphonics (noise from the cable rubbing against clothes and other objects) a thing of the past.

Top Customer Reviews
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
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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›

Good sound, but those tangly wires are not high quality. My twine wire connection failed and now I only receive parcial sound. Also, the twine wire gets tangled way too often.Published 4 months ago by Nicholas Lindblad
