Walnut, Calif., January 3, 2011

Sound preferences vary from person to person, across music genres, and even with different media players.

The in-ear design provides passive sound isolation and the 10 mm driver provides powerful, dynamic full range sound.

"Simply changing the rear plate alters the sound in a very natural way, without the sound degradation that can occur with an equalizer. Giving consumers an option to alter the sound to match their preference will take out some of the guesswork when buying a headphone before listening to it."

The SP51 has a stylish all black design with the MEE frustration-free cable and retails for $59.99. A phone version with an inline microphone and remote button will also be available for $69.99. Accessories include a protective case, 4 sets of ear tips, and 3 sets of tuning plates. Available in Q1 of 2011.

MEElectronics introduces in-ear headphones with ceramic housing for accurate sound

Walnut, Calif., November 16th, 2010
MEElectronics, manufacturer of award winning earphones and accessories, has announced the release of the CC51 earphone, also known as in-ear headphone, that features a ceramic housing for resonance-free reproduction of sound resulting in less distortion and improved accuracy.

The CC51 uses a new 6.0mm micro-driver that delivers full, accurate, detailed sound and, when housed in the ceramic housing, eliminates resonance that might cause distortion-inducing harmonics. Due to the driver being located very close to the ear, driver size does not limit reproduction of full range sound.

"Ceramic is an extremely hard, durable material that does not resonate like other housings, resulting in a very clean, clear, ear-pleasing sound signature, while looking fantastic and holding up extremely well to wear and tear," said Joe Daileda, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for MEElectronics. "Ceramic is not usually practical for larger enclosures, but for in-ear headphones it works very, very well. We think this product offers a new, unique style, great sound, and is an excellent value in today's budget-conscious world."

The CC51, which will retail for $79.99, comes in black or white and will be available in late January 2011.

MEElectronics Supports The Troops with M9 In-Ear Headphone Giveaway

Walnut, Calif., August 13, 2010
In support of overseas US troops, MEElectronics, manufacture of earphones with high-quality sound at affordable prices, is donating one M9 earphone for every special edition commemorative M9 purchased.

MEElectronics would like to recognize the American Service Members for their sacrifices and hardships endured in serving our country. The special edition commemorative M9 ($24.99 shipped within the US) is available in limited quantities at www.meelec.com. MEE is partnering with Operation Gratitude for distribution of the donated M9s, which will be distributed at the end of October. Operation Gratitude has delivered almost 560,000 care packages to date.

In an effort to determine the best affordable earphone and accessories for service men and women overseas, MEElectronics polled several people that served overseas. The consensus was the M9 would be great because of its award-winning sound, extreme durability and accessories, which include a clamshell case, extra ear tips, and wire organizer - perfect for conditions overseas. Many service members use iPods and other MP3 players regularly and upgraded headphones are always welcome and useful. The included clamshell case and wire organizer are great for keeping earphones protected. The M9 also comes standard with 5 sets of ear tips vs. 3 or fewer with most other earphones, so even if an ear tip is lost, the M9 is still usable.

About Operation Gratitude
Tens of thousands of American Service Members are deployed in hostile and remote regions of the world, including the Middle East, Afghanistan, and on ships throughout international waters. The physical conditions they must endure are difficult and they may be separated from loved ones for long periods of time.

Operation Gratitude seeks to lift morale and put smiles on faces by sending care packages addressed to individual Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines deployed overseas. Operation Gratitude care packages contain food, hygiene products, entertainment items and personal letters of appreciation, all wrapped with good wishes of love and support.

Through Collection Drives, Letter Writing Campaigns and Donations of funds for shipping expenses, Operation Gratitude provides civilians anywhere in America a way to express their respect and appreciation to the men and women of the U.S. Military in an active, hands-on manner.

Operation Gratitude is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, volunteer-based corporation, funded entirely by private donations. For safety and security, the assembling of all packages occurs at the Army National Guard Armory in Van Nuys, California.
