5 out of 5 eggs Great budget Balanced Armature 10/28/2011

This review is from: MEElectronics A151-BK 3.5mm Connector In-Ear Headphone with Balanced Armature Technology


These are great IEMs, especially if you get them on sale. The sound signature is definitely darker than my previous IEMs (Ety ER-6i), and only a little cooler than most sub-$40 IEMs. The secret to enjoying these earbuds is the choice of eartips. If you're looking for a lot of bass, then the Sony Hybrid eartips are the ones for you (it's the only eartips I've used since a month ago). If you use the stock double-flange eartips, then the bass is, in comparison, a lot weaker, and will only be apparent on deep insertion. You definitely won't hear or feel the bass on the train with the stock eartips.

The rest of the sound spectrum is typical for a BA, it has articulate, almost sparkling highs and very smooth mids. Check out the reviews on Head-Fi for more information.


Despite being a BA, the highs were less pronounced and much darker on the highs compared to my Ety's. Then again, Ety's are considered very cold and highs were the only thing that the budget Ety's excelled at.

Other Thoughts:

The fit and comfort of these IEMs are great, they go over your ear and the cable is amazingly soft and pliable. You have to try these, especially if you need a cheap pair of good IEMs.
