Thanks. Was waiting for these to hit sub $15. Is this the lowest price they've hit?

I believe they were $2 cheaper for black Friday. Still, seems like a very good price for what they are. TheHeadphonelist rates them as one of the top sub $50 headphones.

Any thoughts on how these compare (sound quality) to the Sennheiser CX200? (http://www.amazon.com/Sennheiser-...B001EZUQ5E)

The CX200 were my last pair of IEMs for gym use and they just bit the bullet. I loved them for a cheap "disposable" set of in ears. I figure for $12 the M6 should be the same if not better. Here are a few threads discussing.

Seems like the M6 win out over the budget CX200 and even the CX300.

bahamut000 12-31-2013 12:04 AM

These are my go to headphone.
I've owned several pairs at a time and always keep a new one as backup.
Occasionally I have issues with the cable wearing and one of the headphones dying.
I contacted the company once (they were under warranty) and after inspecting the headphones I sent in they were happy to replace them free of charge.
Thinking of picking up another pair just to have an extra backup.
Would recommend/buy again.

goofhead9 12-31-2013 12:05 AM

I've used these for the gym. I got about 3 years of light usage out of them before the earpiece starts to fray metal. I'm on the fence about buying another pair since the sound quality (my taste obviously) wasn't as preferable as the m31s that I had as well. I would comment that these are great for running though as they tend to stay in the ear.

itsxjustin 12-31-2013 12:36 AM

pro tip: remove ear wax before using these or else you'll push your wax deeeep insiiiiiide.

damn would have gotten these if not for the $35 free ship requirement

AristoNYC 12-31-2013 03:32 AM

I tried these and I couldn't get them to feel right, not sure what it was.
for what its worth, I use the V-moda sport ear hooks paired with the monoprice earbuds and they feel much better.

pmgreen 12-31-2013 05:38 AM

Have these in right now, they are ok. Surprisingly comfortable, sounds is average depending on what you have used prior. The noise isolating doesn't do a damn thing. <$15 worth it

Where is the S6 ?

Powerzzz 12-31-2013 05:43 AM

arggg....I just bought the orange ones 2 days ago!

to be honest these buds are a pain in the butt to get seated in your ears correctly, takes allot of fidgiting and wire fighting.

MMMope 12-31-2013 07:00 AM

These are the BEST headphones I have found for running

DuyD2352 12-31-2013 07:19 AM

check the ebay link that someone pointed me towards earlier. there's a comparison table of different models in the auction description

jefflam79 12-31-2013 08:37 AM

I have a set and they are great. definitelly worth the $12. they do need break in though, moreso then any other set of headphones or earbuds I have used before so don't write these off yet if you try them and don't like them right out of the box. the sound completely changes after a bit of use, i forget how many hours (maybe 50 or so?). just let them run some music at a moderate volume on the desk till they loosen up. do a test before and after, you will see (hear) a big difference in sound.

piebraket 12-31-2013 08:49 AM

I use these for my run. It doesn't fall out and doesn't have to constantly adjust it.

dj_jonnyv 12-31-2013 08:56 AM

I have some Comply foam tips on mine...increases Isolation considerably and enhances sound quality IMO. Yes, takes a few extra to get a good seat on them, but once placed, they stay locked in. Definitely worth it...

ScorpioRising 12-31-2013 09:34 AM

I have these ear buds. Every in-ear ear bud I have ever tried falls out while running. These will at least stay in for a few miles - if it's not really hot out and you're not sweating, and if you fidget with them to get them seated as DEEP as possible. But under certain circumstances, they will fall out of _my_ ears. I'm not sure what it is called technically, but one other problem with them is that you get a "bounce" sound as the cables bounce a bit off your body. And lastly, the built-in mic and on/off control, while small enough to not affect the grab of the clip, seems to have gone bonkers on my pair after just a couple of months of outdoor warm weather running. I'm not sure if there is anything I could have done about it - perhaps wrapping the part in some sort of waterproof protection (plastic wrap?). I don't know if it was sweat, running in rain, or if it was just plain faulty.

If you are the type that has trouble finding in-ear earphones that stay in your ear and you want to use them for running, I'd think twice about these. The old style Sennheiser behind the neck earband (without the bulky control, which sucks because it pulls the clips off your shirt) works much better. They are easy to temporarily remove (just pop 'em out of your ears and let them hang around your neck) and put back in while you are running. The M6's you really have to stop running, try to dry the inside of your ear the best you can, and fidget with them to get them back in. It is very frustrating to be running and feel them start to come unseated from your ear, then keep trying to push them back in so they don't come all the way out, every few hundred yards, and finally having to stop and try to seat them correctly because you are so annoyed you can't get in to that zone that we runners like.

One note about the best way I found to seat these earbuds, with the opposite side hand, pull the top of your ear up and out while inserting and twisting the ear bud in place with your other hand.

That said, these are really cheap, so you could try them and if they work - great! If not, well, at least you didn't pay $50+ for them.

REVMB04 12-31-2013 09:39 AM

These headphones have been a staple for our orchestra and band members for following click tracks and having the fidelity of decent sound range. The biggest plus for these is that they have such a good seal with the earbud accessories provided that you get true sound instead of an open sound with outside noise leaking in. The downside to them is that I couldn't find them to be comfortable to run in because the seal was so strong and the earbuds went so deep that every time I took another step running the seal/pressure popped in my inner ear. For sitting down and listening, these have great sound for the price, and these have been used by my drummers in the cage because they seal out external sound and allow them to hear the click tracks we use despite the amount of sound the drums are making in an enclosed cage. I just bought 6 more for this next year because they are completely worth it to have on hand. I'm just sad I missed the BF $9.99 :-(

oxtis 12-31-2013 10:34 AM

how are these compare to UE TF10 ? (http://www.amazon.com/Ultimate-Ea...B0019RBJOE)

I'm not sure if I should use my TF10 in the gym, because I'm scared that I will break them.

socalmab 12-31-2013 11:00 AM

I have tried many different in ear headphones these are by far the best fir running. They seem very sweat resistant. I have run 2 marathons and 6 half marathons with the same pair. I love them

atldirtybird1 12-31-2013 11:05 AM

I could not get these to stay in my ears even with the different tips. It was the loop that goes around the ear that was the problem for me.

cdavis211 12-31-2013 11:47 AM

Awesome, thanks. I specifically checked to see if there was a very inexpensive IEM deal and there it was.

These will be perfect for audiobooks while I walk, exercise, etc. I can keep my higher end IEMs for the lossless music library.

Now watch them sound as good as something costing 20x more, lol.

MiguelN 12-31-2013 11:47 AM

I wanted to get these, but the ones with a mic are $28 :(

cobra11murderer 12-31-2013 12:07 PM

maybe some one can help me.. I'm thinkin of getting these (Sennheiser CX 300B MK II) but I def want the mic setup... anything close like that?

nottrollin 12-31-2013 12:16 PM

So is there a difference between amazon and eBay link? EBay link says first Gen. Thanks

astralisdustin 12-31-2013 12:57 PM

On 11/28/2011 I paid $10.99 for the mic version shipped, I think it was a slick deal (on Newegg). They are my favorite earbuds by far, and although I don't use the mic a lot, it is very handy when I need it. If they hit that price point again I would buy 3 more pairs just as backups for the years to come.

The only con is it is sometimes easy to lose the little rubber tip. I have lost my small ones more times than I can count, but somehow I have always found them again.

ljxdaly 12-31-2013 01:27 PM

wish this was any store but amazon. i'm very sick of amazon's hidden fees and charges. they are the new sleezeballs of the internet. i sure hope google ends up owning the world and not amazon.

You OK bro... Can you be more specific. I checked it out for the advertised prices without taxes and free shipping (2 days if you have prime).

mezosurfer 12-31-2013 02:08 PM

I've had 2 pairs of these (since lost) and they are fantastic headphones. This is a really good deal.

Hey ljxdaly, my friend. Did you take your meds today ;) ?


What hidden fees are you talking about... ? Are you annoyed like me that Amazon charges sales tax in your state? Believe me... I hated that too, but that is your state which is forcing them not Amazon..

chaoticrash 12-31-2013 02:32 PM

These are great ear buds. I have had these for about 3 months and the sound quality is great.

I cant speak for the I phone 5 but I can for the SGS3. The bass can be better with the SCS3 headphones but the problem I found with the SGS3 stock ones is that when you pull on the chord by accident it greatly affects the sound quality so you have to constantly adjusts the earpieces. With the MEEi's they stay put, which was my reason for getting them since I got tired of readjusting the SCS3 buds while in mid stride when running. Whats cool too is that the S6 come with different size ear pieces so you can find the one that fits your ear best. I paid $20 for them so this is a great price.

I have done the same too. I purchased the size I loved direct from their website. They come in 3 pairs for $8, which is not bad. I tried using the other sizes but they did not work, guess I got spoiled.

I'm curious about this as well. I bought the Philips SHS8105A/28, but would cancel and switch if these are better. The Philips has a mic, but I don't care too much about that.

cobra11murderer 12-31-2013 03:24 PM

anybody?

benjie 12-31-2013 06:03 PM

FWIW, the sound quality on these is good, but what I really wanted them for was the noise cancellation. I wear these on planes, with or without any music, and they do an amazing job of blocking out the noise of the flight - engine whine, crying babies, annoying passengers. These things are like really good earplugs that also happen to be great headphones.

As other said, ... HUH?

I LOVE Amazon. As a student Prime member ($40 a year) they are unbeatable. Much easier to deal with than Best Buy or any brick and mortar.

What in the world hidden fees do you see? They very blatantly state shipping charges, and as another poster said, if they charge sales tax, well that's up to your state, and any physical store charges the same.

What in the world are you smoking? Amazon is the future of shopping.

Ok, right now my daily drivers are a pair of first-gen (pre-Supreme Sound) Skullcandy Ink'ds. Also, my ears are pretty dang small for a guy.

That being said, how are these (and this style) for people with smaller ears?

Same here. The silicone rubber cups included have two types, the ones with multiple folds are especially good for noise isolation. Sometimes I use them as earplugs when riding subway, lol.

I can not remember since when I started to use them for running anymore, but I am always get a pair anytime a deal like this comes up. Never disappointed. The only con I think, is that it takes a few times to learn to put them on. :hug:

ljxdaly 01-01-2014 01:51 PM

nonetheless, i bought two of these for 9 bucks each from the manufacturers ebay store. free shipping. btw, the shipping for amazon was 6 buckets,

These are amazing, sound quality is soooo much better than the iPhone earphones. So many earpiece selections, you need to make sure you get the perfect fit for the most optimized sound.
Thanks again for the advise and post

jaliu 01-17-2014 12:25 AM

what do you guys think? the sound quality isn't the best and the wire doesn't feel secure on my ears. i wonder if the jlab fit is any better?
