The MEE M6 have a typical in-ear design with ear hooks that make them a bit more stable for sports. They have very low leakage, they block a fair amount of noise, and they're very portable, which makes them decent for commuting. However their average-at-best build quality and poorly balanced sound will be a deal breaker for some.

Our Verdict

5.9 Mixed Usage

The Mee Audio Sport-Fi M6 are average-at-best for mixed usage. They have a poorly balanced sound and lack a lot of basic features like an inline remote or a mic. On the upside, they're a lightweight and compact in-ear that's stable enough to use at the gym and they block enough noise passively to use while on public transit.

Pros
  • Lightweight and compact design.
  • Stable for sports.
Cons
  • Poor audio reproduction.
  • Weak build quality.
6.0 Neutral Sound

Mediocre for neutral listening. They have a poorly balanced sound quality, with an overwhelming amount of bass and sharp reproduction of the treble range that will be a deal breaker for some. They're also a closed in-ear design so they do not have a wide and open soundstage that would be ideal for neutral listening.

6.0 Commute/Travel

Average for commuting. The Mee Audio Sport-Fi M6 don't block as much noise as some other in-ear headphones but depending on the volume at which you play your audio the passive isolation could be sufficient.

6.6 Sports/Fitness

The Mee Audio Sport-Fi M6 are decent, budget sports headphones. They lack a decent control scheme but they're small and easy to carry around on your person, wherever you go. They're also stable enough to run or exercise with.

6.1 Office

Average for office use. They will block some of the office chatter but since they barely leak you can mask some of the ambient noise by playing your audio at higher volumes.

3.9 Wireless Gaming

Average for gaming. The Mee Audio Sport-Fi M6 have a no latency wired connection but lack a microphone and many of the features that make a good gaming headset.

Style

The Mee Audio Sport-Fi M6 are straightforward in-ear headphones. They have an ear-hook design that gives them a more sporty appeal but an understated color scheme that won't stand out in a crowd. Unfortunately, they look and feel a little cheap and the hooks are not the most rigid which won't be as stable as the Q9A or Powerbeats 2 Wireless.

The Mee Audio Sport-Fi M6 a typical in-ear fit with an ear hook design. The audio cable goes behind your ears, but it's very thin and does not affect the comfort level. However, the tips will put a little pressure in the ear canal, which can get bothersome during long listening sessions. On the upside, they come with a couple of different tips to help you find the right fit.

The Mee Audio Sport-Fi M6 like most in-ears are very portable headphones. They will easily fit in most pockets and they're small enough to carry on your person without hassle.

The Mee Audio Sport-Fi M6 come with a decent soft case that will prevent your headphones from getting tangled in your bag or pocket. It will also protect them from falls and impacts but not water damage.

Build Quality

The build quality of the MEE M6 is average-at-best. They're lightweight and the earbuds dense enough to handle a couple of drops without getting damaged. However, the audio cable is relatively thin, which may not be as durable as some of the rubberized or flat cables of more premium in-ears. Unfortunately, they also do not have a replaceable cable like the M6 Pro edition and their ear-hook design feels very thin and cheap.

Design
Stability

The Mee Audio Sport-Fi M6 are stable enough to run and work-out with. They have an ear-hook design that provides a bit more stability than standard in-ear models. However, the hooks are as thin as the cable, which may not be sturdy enough to keep the headphones attached to your ears during high-intensity exercises at the gym.

Excellent frequency response consistency for the Mee Audio Sport-Fi M6. Like most other in-ear headphones, in the user is able to achieve an air-tight fit with the headphones, then they should be achieving consistent results almost every time.

Average bass range performance. Low-frequency extension is at 10Hz, which is perfect. However, the entire bass response is consistently over our target by more than 4dB. This makes the sound of these headphones noticeably bass-heavy and boomy.

Good mid-range performance for the Mee Audio Sport-Fi M6. The remarkable thing here is the 5dB dip centered around 700Hz, pushing vocals/leads slightly to the back of the mix.

Sub-par treble range performance. 10dB peak at 4.5KHz adds excess brightness to the sound and could make vocals/leads on overly-bright tracks sound harsh. Conversely, the dip in mid-treble takes away some of the presence and sibilances from the mix.

Mediocre isolation performance. The Mee Audio Sport-Fi M6, unlike Jaybird X2 and BeatsX, don't isolate in the bass range. However, they achieved 11dB of isolation in the mid-range which is decent, and 36dB in the treble range, which is above-average.

Excellent leakage performance. The Mee audio M6, like most other closed-back in-ear headphones, barely leaks. The significant portion of the leakage sits between 3KHz and 6KHz, which is a narrow range, and the overall level of leakage is very low.
