S6 was my second Meelec IEM after M6, which I was thoroughly impressed with, though it shares the same sound with m6(same signature), its a bit more less mid-recessed than m6 in terms of SQ comparision. Cable is a LOT durable, stylish and sleeky than m6s. More accessories included.
I had monster isport before, I must say this is far better in terms of everything, they literally broke after a few months of usage, isolation wasnt that great, SQ isnt the best too. This IEM might just serve as a good cheap alternative for sporting activities like gym,running etc.
Heres a detailed review on S6 :
Accessories : Well, Meelectronics really cant go wrong in this part, they provide a solid package of Accessories for all of their products. S6 comes with
1) 2 Shirt clip(attached to IEM)
2) 6 pairs of silicon ear tips (3 sizes Single Flanges, 1 Double Flange and 2 sizes of Triple Flanges)- Tips are pretty much the best silicon tips Ive used
with, they are reasonably durable with good comfort
3) Hard clamshell carrying case- Pretty hard case on the outside with good soft material on inside making earphones secure to carry on the go
4) Extension cable
5) Neoprene Arm Band - Looks fancy and is made of good quality indeed.
Build Quality : Cable is pretty solid and has low-profile L-plug, Housings are made of plastic. The over-ear cables has a 2 inches of memory wire. Cable is
a lot more durable than of m6, but is small(18″ approx), an extension cable is provided though. Microphonics are pretty much non existent.
Isolation : This suprisingly isolates a lot, particularly with Triple Flanges,Double Flanges.
Comfort: This is where this IEM lags a bit, since its over-ear, the memory wire can cause fit issues for some. Experiment with different sized tips might
solve it. With a little knife work, memory wire can be removed making it wearing straight down which might solve it for some(with the expense of bit isolation), Comply T400 is another alternative which isolates well with good comfort (comfort is same as m6)
Signature: V-Type Signature
Mids: Mids are better than m6 has good clarity, range, extension, but still somewhat recessed
Highs: It has good crystal-clear detailing at top of the range, it is little bit bright and is relatively smoother
Bass: This is where S6 Shines, Bass Control is good for the price, mid-bass hump gives a good overall balance, has good impact and body
SoundStage: Pretty good with decent airiness
Final Verdict : S6 might be the best budget IEM for sport in 30-70$ range, they just sum up good as a package. Add the amazing Meelectronics Customer Support, you should not worry for techinal/breaking issues. They just have the best technical support to assist you with any problem and might just give the edge over the other IEMs at its price..
Pros: Solid Build Quality,Accessories, Customer Service, good all-round sound
Cons: Fit can be frustating for some, over-the-ear style might not suit for everyone
