The MEE audio M6 Pro are a more durable and better-built upgrade to the MEE audio Sport-Fi M6. They come with two cables and the transparent casing on the earbuds and the in-line remote makes them look and feel more premium. They're stable enough to exercise with, and thanks to their decently isolating and portable design they're an adequate choice for commuting. Unfortunately, they tend to sound a bit sharp and they won't be ideal for very noisy environments.
The MEE audio M6 Pro are decently versatile in-ears. They deliver a moderately well-balanced audio response but may sound a bit too sharp for some critical listeners. They're easy to carry around on your person with a stable and durable design that's decent for sports. Unfortunately, they may not be the ideal headphones for more critical listeners.
Decent for neutral listening. The MEE audio M6 Pro have a moderately well balanced audio reproduction but may sound a bit too sharp for some. They also don't have a spacious soundstage due to their closed in-ear design. They won't be the ideal headphones for more neutral listeners but they should sound decent enough for most casual listening.
The MEE audio M6 Pro are above-average for commuting and traveling. They're comfortable and easy to carry around with you at all times. However, they isolate a little less than some of the other in-ear headphones we've reviewed. On the upside, you can always mask some of the noise by playing your music a little louder since they don't leak much.
The MEE audio M6 Pro are above-average for sports. They have an ear-hook design that's stable enough to run with and they're decently comfortable for in-ears. Unfortunately, their controls can be a bit difficult to see due to the transparent casing and they may get tangled or hooked on something when exercising.
The MEE audio M6 Pro are decent for office use. They barely leak even at very high volumes so they're a decent pair of headphones to use at the office. They block enough noise for most office environments, but they don't perform as well as dedicated noise cancelling headphones.
The MEE audio M6 Pro are average for gaming. They have practically no latency since they're wired. Unfortunately, they don't have the best microphone for gaming, and they don't have any customization features.
The MEE audio M6 Pro look somewhat similar to the MEE audio Sport-Fi M6 but with a detachable cable and transparent casing for the earbuds. This makes them stand out and look more premium. They also have an ear-hook design with angled earbuds that better fit the contours of your ears. Their cable is also a bit thicker and more rubberized than the cable for the MEE audio Sport-Fi M6.
The MEE audio M6 Pro are slightly more comfortable than the MEE audio Sport-Fi M6 thanks to their memory foam tips. Their ear hook design is also less flimsy than the original, which makes them fit your ears a bit more securely. However, they do not quite fit as snugly as some of the pricier in-ear headphones we've reviewed like the Westone W40. Also if you're not a fan of the in-ear fit, they may still get a bit fatiguing after wearing them for a while.
The MEE audio M6 Pro have a simple and easy-to-use control scheme that's a bit difficult to see due to the transparent casing of the in-line remote. They provide the basic functions for call/music track skipping and volume control. The buttons are also relatively responsive although the slider could use a more discrete input with notches.
The MEE audio M6 Pro are incredibly portable. They fit into most pockets and come with a good case that's a little large but still quite portable. This makes them practical and convenient to have on you at all times.
The MEE audio M6 Pro come with a decent soft case that can help protect them from drops and impacts but adds quite a bit of bulk.
The MEE audio M6 Pro have a good build quality. The cables are decently thick, and the earbuds are dense yet lightweight enough that they won't get damaged by a few accidental drops. The ear hook on both cables feels a bit more rigid than on the MEE audio Sport-Fi M6, but they're still a bit flimsy when compared to more sports-oriented headphones. The cables improved, but don't feel as premium as those of more expensive models like the Shure SE425 or the Westone W40.
The MEE audio M6 Pro have a decently stable design. Their ear hooks prevent them from easily falling from your ears, but the lack of stiffness means they won't be as stable as more sports-oriented in-ears like the SoundPeats Q9A Wireless or the Beats Powerbeats3 Wireless. On the upside, they're still great headphones to run with and shouldn't fall out of your ears unless the cable gets hooked or tangled on something.
Very good frequency response consistency. Like other in-ear headphones, if the user can achieve a proper fit, then they should be able to get consistent results each time.
Excellent bass range performance. Low frequency is extended down to 22Hz, which is excellent. Low-bass is also well reproduced and shows only 2dB of underemphasis compared to our target. Conversely, high-bass is over our target by about 1.5dB, adding slight boominess to the sound.
Very good mid-range performance. The overall response is pretty consistent, but the 4dB dip centered around 700Hz pushes vocals/leads slightly to the back of the mix.
Mediocre treble range performance. Low-treble is overemphasized by more than 5dB, bringing excess brightness to vocals and lead instruments. The 10dB peak at 5kHz could make the treble to sound harsh on certain tracks.
Average isolation. They don't isolate a lot of bass-range noises, and they even show some resonance buildup around 200Hz. In the mid-range, they achieve about 13dB of isolation which is above-average. In the treble range, they reduce ambient noise by more than 36dB, which is good.
Very good leakage performance. The significant portion of leakage sits between 4kHz and 6kHz, which is quite a narrow range and typical of most in-ears. The overall level of leakage is also low, and the leakage will consist of mostly S and T sounds.
Average microphone performance. Speech recorded with the microphone of the MEE audio M6 Pro sounds full and easily understandable but will be rather boomy and muffled. They don't fare well in noisy environments, and also won't be able to separate speech from ambient noise in relatively loud environments like a busy street.
The MEE audio M6 Pro have a good recording quality. LFE is at 20Hz, but high-frequency extension basically cuts off at 5kHz. Additionally, there's a big bump in the bass range. This results in recorded speech that sounds full, but boomy in the bass and rather airless and muffled in the higher frequencies.
Sub-par noise handling. The microphone achieved a speech-to-noise ratio of 10dB, meaning they aren't good at separating speech from ambient noise.
No compatible features.
The Shure SE215 are better critical listening in-ears than the MEE audio M6 PRO. They are noticeably better-built and also feel more comfortable for long listening sessions. Additionally, their isolation performance is great and will allow you to concentrate on your audio content. Sound-wise, they’ll be boomier than the MEE, but won’t be as sharp. On the other hand, the MEE have an in-line remote and an in-line microphone, which the Shure are lacking. However, our MEE unit seemed to have a mismatch in phase.
