Amazon Review
Best earphones for under $50 Competes with headphones that cost $100+
Comparisons: The M9's are one of the best, if not the best headphones in the sub $30 category. They easily beat my modded JVC Marshmalllows, Skullcandies, and my V-moda Bass Freq's. When compared to stock earphones, haha, I guess you already know. The M9's even beat out headphones that are much more expensive. Compared to my Ultimate Ears super.fi 3's, the bass of the M9's are greatly superior, the highs are also better. The only thing the Ultimate Ears does better is the midrange. My Shure SE110's are inferior to the M9's even though they cost up to seven times more than the M9's, the bass on the Shures are muddy compared to the bass of the M9's. The clarity is also inferior to that of the M9's.
I'm Not an Audio Expert BUT Hear Me Out!
I've owned Sennheiser earbuds, Klipch buds, Skullcandys, Sonys, JVC Marshmallows, Creative EP buds, Bose, iWAVES, iWishIneverBoughtCheapEarbuds, Memorex and Philips buds, and at some point in my life--a very low, low point in my life--I resorted to a cheap pair of buds made by Sentry. What times I've had...
Amongst all the ones I've owned and own now, these MEElectronics M9-BK's are SUPERB (I say this with a very French accent, which means buy them now because I'm right all the time!). Seriously, silly jokes aside these are the best earbuds I've owned in a long time. They're the type that you'll want to take with you when your commuting as opposed to sacrificing more expensive earbuds to the elements of an urban/active life.
Folks Let's Stop Kidding Ourselves, Shall We?
I am now of the opinion that Sennheiser and (wait for it, cuz here it comes people....) even Bose ear buds have NOTHING on these. The folks who talk about these buds being high quality at lower price points are actually UNDERSTATING the case. I make no exaggerations here. I've been through them all, and it the buck stops with MEE. Someone mentioned boutique prices for the bigger names touting otherworldly quality. I say nuts.
Newegg reviews
Excellent for the Price
I'm not really an audiophile, but after using Skullcandy and switching to these, the difference is easily noticable. These are really for people who love their bass. The bass is nice and loud and a bit 'boomy'. The mids are decent, and the treble can be a little harsh at some times, but for $18, these are easily the best sub $30 pair of earphones on the market.




PC Magazine India: MEE M9 in-Ear Headphones “Overall, the M9 has sound quality which is exciting and its frequency response is commendable for its price.” Dec 01, 2010 Laldinfela Pachuau
UNI Student Wish List: MEElectronics present the M9 In-ear Earphones “Verdict. Overall, I have to say that i love these earphones. For the price range that they are in, they are outstanding. From the aesthetics to the sound quality, we believe that there is not a single person out there who will not gain some excitement or enjoyment from these earphones.”

Android Police: For Audiophiles: Sub-$100 Mobile Headset (Earbuds + Mic) Review Round-Up “...for those on a budget, we cannot recommend the Meelectronics M9P highly enough.”

Gadget review: MEElectronics M9 earphones “Without any hesitation whatsoever, I would absolutely recommend anyone music lover to pick these up – irrespective of the fact whether they’re on a budget or not. The MEElectronics M9 earphones are a whole lot of fun, and the overall package is far too good to be ignored by anyone who takes their music seriously.”

Head-fi.org: MEElectronics M9 - Impressions/Review “It's above what I'd expect from a $60 earphone and a surprisingly good experience from what's only $20 on the street. These to me are not $20 earphones. The sound isn't $20. The packaging and accessories are not $20. It's a good $60 value and $80 retail wouldn't be bad for them.” July 12, 2010 mvw2

The Mind of Game: MEElectronics M9P Review “The cable is perhaps the best I’ve seen on any IEM. It’s lined with what appears to be delicate braided silver wiring inside and coated with a transparent plastic coating that both looks very attractive and makes it feel very durable. The cable is properly relieved at both ends which inspires confidence in terms of long term durability. Because of the great cable design, microphonics are negligible when worn straight down and practically non-existent when worn over-the-ear.” Feb 26, 2010 TheGame21x
In Ear Matters: [REVIEW] MEElectronics' In-Ears “[UPDATE] With the new version of M9 spotting the transparent cable, I think it really deserves a Sonic Diamond Award™ for its outstanding value.” Nov 01, 2009 Tai Ming Sow
Touchmyapps - MEElectronics Ai-M6 & Ai-M9 Review – Royalty on a Budget “Affordable, well built, and stylish with astonishing audio performance rivaling competitors that cost more than many times their price, Meelectronics M6 and M9 are great.” Jul 13, 2009 Felix Yau
Head-fi: The updated Meelectronics M9s: a short pictorial “I'm personally very impressed with the update - the build quality was probably my only gripe with the old Ai-M9 for the asking price. With all of the improvements the M9s become my most highly recommended sub-$30 earphone for the moment as I expect far fewer issues with the new build.” Jan 10, 2010 ljokerl
Head-fi: My personal impressions on Meelectronics Ai-M9 “Compared with the SoundMagic PL21, the M9 are better overall, specially taking into account the minimal price difference. Compared with the PL30, I like the M9 better…” Dec 26, 2009 DervishD
Head-fi: My review of Meelectronics M6, M9 and M11 “Being a dynamic IEM they require time to settle (burn in) to sound their best. Once settled the M9 offer a dynamic sound experience, with a tight and punchy bass that does not over-power the rest of the soundspectrum, the mids are lively, the highs are crisp and the soundstage is wide. The laidback and pleasing warmth is very nice sounding and one can listen to them for hours on end, without any fatigue. The detail in the overall sound is impressive for a dynamic IEM in this price range. The M9 will make all music styles sound lively and enjoyable, with their dynamic sound nicely wrapped into a large soundstage, they make for a great listening experience that soon will have you tapping along to the music. It can also be noted that they respond well to the use of DSP’s and EQ’s.” Oct 12, 2009 mp3

Excellent in-ear headphones in every way, have had the m9's for 8 months until i accidentally dipped it in water, amazingly they still work!

My earphone of choice February 13, 2010
Reviewer: Paul from OH, United States  
I stumbled upon MEElectronics and I am happy I did. Comparing these to other similar products I have, all the others are a let down. I listen to mostly metal and I like to keep up with "top 40" songs. These sound fantastic for both. The word full comes to mind when trying to describe the sound. The bass is very strong and stays clean during busy tracks. The mids and highs are comparable to other pairs I own that cost 3x what these do.

I already purchased a pair for my brother and am considering checking out the M6's for my next pair. Very fast shipping also. Ordered late on a Sunday night and arrived Wednesday (shipped to Ohio).

Excellence February 8, 2010
Reviewer: Colin from Saint Louis, MO United States  
Excellent sound, great customer service, unbeatable price. Some of the fastest shipping ever, you will not find a better sound for this price. In fact, you will struggle to find a better sound for 3 times the price (unless it's the meelec m6's from what I read). Could not be more satisfied. Also, these things are of high quality construction, they look great too, keep it up!
