MEElectronics HT-21 Portable Travel Headphone with Adjustable Headband
2 February 2013
Summary: The headphones are slightly larger than I thought they would be. After extended wear the band pushes into the top of my head and is uncomfortable. There's a bit of padding but not nearly enough.
Summary: While I am not an audiophile, I do collect as many budget head- and earphones as I can. These HT-21 headphones do not do the good name of MEElectronics justice, as I can definitely recommend their M9 earphones, as well as their customer service (my pair of M9 broke, replacement sent immediately upon...
Pros: - Portability (they fold up nicely) - Low-profile
Cons: - even though they fold up, they do not stay that way. I would have to jam them into the included storage bag. - somewhat flimsy construction, headband is too thin - earcups a little too firmly padded, hurt ears after a while - MEElec logo on earcups scratches off easily
Summary: They can get a little uncomfortable to wear after extended use, but you sacrifice comfort for extreme portability.
Pros: I bought these hoping to have a nice portable replacement to my aging Sony MDR-V300s and they deliver on that front. Nice and compact, these headphones are easy to slip in it's carrier bag and fold up quite nicely.
Cons: However, more important was the sound and the HT-21s left me a little disappointed. The out of the box sound is very bright, and not every device I carry has the capability to tone down the highs. With the right settings you could get some great sound of of these.
Summary: Got these to use while at the computer and that's a good thing because these headphones require an equalizer to sound good. Out of the box, these have an overpowering midrange and an almost non-existent highs.
Summary: It seems strange to me that they would invest so much into the build quality of these headphones, yet, use such mediocre speakers. I tested them with rock and symphonic tracks on both an iPhone 4 and a nano. Overall, the sound is lacking any real depth.
Pros: Great build quality. Very comfortable and lightweight. Tangle-free cord. Great quality carrying bag. Folding cups for portability.
