I am a web developer and I use my headphones mainly for listening to podcasts, lectures, etc and I also listen to music. These headphones sound perfect for everything... Seems like the longer I use them, the better they sound..

My last set of headphones lasted less than 3 weeks.. I have had these for 5 months and they have been through everything. i have caught the wire on drawer knobs before and I wear these daily while driving, hiking or even shoveling snow. These things are built to last!

Every set of headphones I have ever owned except these have all had connection problems after a period of time. Usually it is where the wires meat the jack. These are built really well and so far so good..

Another big plus was that I paid around $20 for these I believe.. I am not sure what they are selling for but I have paid 3 times as much for headphones that have not lasted nearly as long and have not had the sound quality these have. I just love these headphones.. 5 months of using these every single day and they work perfectly still and they sound even better now than when I got them.. Oh yeah, these headphones block a good deal of sound as well.

This was one of the best purchases I have ever made.. I am so happy with these..

UPDATE-Here it is January 2011..I have had the phones since Aug 2010 and I have used them every single day since they arrived. I finally managed to break them..One of the speaker wires ripped in half. I was very depressed because going back to any other headphones after these is just seriously depressing. I went through my orders and found the order for these and sure enough they had a year warranty! I contacted the company through email yesterday and today the7y are shipping out a new paid for me.

Company Info: Meelectronics is a new company that produces some of the best headphones for the price. From my experience, they have some of the best costumer service. Their website can be found here [...]

Product: Meelectronics M9 without iPhone microphone

Price: Retail:$30 I bought mine of Amazon for $20

Specifications:

* Driver: 9mm driver

* Frequency Range: 20 - 20000Hz

* Impedance: 16 ohms

* Connector: 3.5mm gold plated
* Cable Length: 1.4m(4.6ft)

Equipment Used:

* My custom-built desktop with a Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium sound card
* 32GB 3rd generation iPod touch
* Fiio E5 amplifier

Packaging and Accessories: The packaging is a nice, clear plastic box. Not hard to open and gets the job done. When it comes to accessories, there is only one thing I can say, wow. Meelectronics gives you quite a lot of goodies for $30. The box includes the headphones themselves, 4 extra pairs of tips, 3 varying size pairs of single-flange tips, and an extra pair of bi-flanges making it a total of 5 pairs of tips. A very nice case is included, the case also has a little pocket on the inside for storage of items such as extra tips. An airline adapter, a cord wrapper, and a shirt-clipper is also included. The accessories themselves could retail for $15+, the generosity of Meelectronics is just amazing.

Build Quality: The M9's are built very well; the housings are made of aluminum and are very lightweight The cable is a very nice braided cable that is coated in a clear plastic/rubber substance.

I have the silver model without the microphone, but same earphone. These are very solidly built earphones, have one of the best cables you'll find on any earphones up to $100, and have a great sound quality that rivals much more expensive phones, like the Klipsch S4.

The M9 has a very strong bass response (a little boomy until about 30-40 hours of use), a flat or slightly recessed mid response, and a very clear strong treble response (a bit grainy, also until the 30-40 hour use mark). They give very good details all across the spectrum, have a pleasantly wide soundstage, and yet are still very musical and still put you in the middle of the music, enjoying it, not just analyzing it.

The M9 comes with very nice accessories for the price, as well. You get several ear tips to give you the right seal. Like most IEMs, it can be sensitive to insertion depth and position: too shallow kills the bass response, too deep and the treble response is dulled. You also get a nice carry case that is big enough to probably hold the very small Nano, Sansa Clip type players.

A very worthy small investment.

These are a good phone for the price. Worth much more than 30 bucks. Good build quality. If you like bass these phones might be for you.

If you're one of those people who keeps up with audio technology, you've noticed a phenomena increasingly common at audiophile community websites: almost unbelievably low-cost IEMs (in ear monitors) are being discovered that approach the quality of high-end headphones. Imports from China and Germany, some costing $15-$40, are getting raved about. Reviews with titles like "Are you kidding me?!" discuss $30 IEMs shipped from Germany(though not manufactured there), mentioning them in the same sentence as items costing $200-$400; if not equal, scarily close for the price.

Maybe it's the high end manufacturers that pioneered the technology that made this possible; so be it. But the fact is becoming increasingly clear that high quality, audiophile class headphones need not be at boutique prices. The ultra-high end market still has superiority, but almost zero justification for the price difference, and the divide is narrowing. Guess what? Your $300 IE8's and Triple-Fi's are not 6x superior to many $50 'phones. You got fleeced by a boutique item that caters to people with more money than sense, or audiophile elitists who see high prices as validation for the exclusivity of their hobby. The technology just does not cost that much to produce.

At this point many of the "cheap but excellent" phones come at a compromise in build quality and need to be purchased from overseas, but not for long. Small upstarts like Meelec are turning the market on its head with items like the M9 and M6, and I have a feeling they aren't going to stop there. If these headphones are judged penny for penny, Meelec is about $30 away from producing elite-status gear on par with the best of the best.
