MEElectronics A151 (Black)

The Good The MEElectronics A151 earphones offer comfortable fit and very detailed sound for an affordable price. They also come with a carrying case.

The Bad No integrated microphone for making cell phone calls; bass-lovers will probably find the bass a little too thin for their tastes.

The Bottom Line At around $50 online, the MEElectronics A151s are among the most affordable balanced-armature earphones out there and deliver very good sound for the money.

Review

MEElectronics A151 (Black)

We've reviewed several MEElectronics headphones and generally have been impressed with their value proposition. They tend to deliver good bang for the buck and the company's A151 balanced-armature in-ear headphone is one of the better sounding earphones in its price range of around $50 online.

The first thing you'll notice about it is that it has 47-inch-long braided cable that looks like the wires used on expensive custom in-ear models from Ultimate Ears and JH Audio. No, you don't get the build quality of higher-end models, but it's decent enough for a $50 headphone and I found them comfortable to wear and it was easy to get a tight seal.

The A151 comes with five sets of eartips (small/medium/large silicon; double flange; large triple flange) and a clamshell carrying case, which is nice, but I could have done without the big MEElectronics logo (it screams "Made in China"). One other small gripe: while the cord is very flexible it does have a tendency to get twisted up easily.
