MEElectronics A161P Review

theheadphonelist.com
5 June 2013
  • Summary: The MEElectronics A161P holds its own in many ways against higher-end products from the likes of JVC, ACS, and VSonic. Aside from the smallish headstage and average dynamics, it is easily a top-tier performer. What detracts from its value are the surrounding bits such as the stringy cable.
  • Pros: Clean and versatile BA sound, good isolation
  • Cons: Mediocre cable

  • Summary: Note: this is more of an impression-style review, since I ultimately did not keep this set. I listened to it intensively, however, and feel confident enough to put together a few thoughts. At the end I mention some things I'd like to see from MEElec's next flagship.
  • Pros: Lovely, lush midrange, quite comfortable, solid build, excellent accessory kit
  • Cons: Treble quite subdued, midrange tends to dominate signature, timbre not quite natural, difficult (for me) to get a proper fit

MEElectronics A161P earphones

MacWorld
13 June 2013
  • Conclusion: MEElectronics’ A161P earphones have a beautiful sound, look good and are very comfortable. At the price of $109 we reckon they’re the best bargain on the market. They lost half a mouse for the microphonics, but still get an ‘Ed’s Pick’ button because they’re officially our new favourite earphones.
