The MEE Audio X7 are budget wireless in-ears with a decently comfortable fit but a piercing sound quality that won't be for everyone. They won't be the best headphones for critical listeners, but they're a suitable option for sports and casual use. They're easy-to-use and super portable, they're also stable enough to exercise with. Unfortunately, they do not fare as well in loud environments and noisy commutes.
The Mee X7 are easy-to-use and practical wireless in-ears but the size of the earbuds may be an issue for some. They're decently comfortable and the angled shape of the earbuds fit well within the contour of your ears. They're compact enough to fit into most pockets and sufficiently stable to exercise with. This makes them suitable for sports and outdoor use but unfortunately, they do not have the most responsive of control schemes. Their build quality also feels a little cheap and due to the size of the earbuds, they won't be as comfortable as some of the other wireless in-ears we've tested (see our recommendations for the best earbuds under $50).
The Mee audio X7 are decent-looking wireless in-ears. They have angled earbuds and a simple design that will work for most. Unfortunately, they do not have a lot of color schemes that you can choose from to better suit your tastes and preferences. The earbuds are also a lot larger than typical in-ears and somewhat protrude out of your ears so they won't be ideal for all users. The plastic in their build quality also looks and feels a bit cheap upon closer inspection but shouldn't be very noticeable at a distance.
The Mee X7 are decently comfortable. They have an ear hook design that threads the audio cable securely behind your ears. The earbuds are also angled to better fit the contours of your ears but their size may not be ideal for everyone. They also still have an in-ear fit so if you do not find in-ears comfortable you will have some of the same issues with the X7s.
The Mee audio X7 have an okay control scheme that provides call/music, track skipping, and volume controls. The buttons are well spaced out but have a mediocre-at-best feedback due to the heavily rubberized coating.
The Mee Audio X7 are very portable headphones. Their earbuds are a little larger than typical in-ears, however, they're still compact enough to comfortably fit into most pockets, bags or purse.
The build quality of the X7 is decent. The earbuds are lightweight and dense enough to handle a couple of drops without damage. The cable is also moderately thick. However, the plastic used throughout the build quality of the X7 feels low grade. The in-line remote has cheap rubber buttons that do not feel durable, and nothing is replaceable on this model so if the earbuds or the cable gets damaged you will most likely need to get a new pair.
The Mee X7 are stable sports headphones. They won't easily fall out of your ears thanks to their lightweight and wireless ear hook design. They're stable enough to run and exercise with and are a good option to take to the gym.
They have a well-extended bass, a very good mid-range, and given the proper fit, a very consistent performance. However, their treble range is overly bright and distorted and tends to sound harsh on most material, which could be a deal breaker for most. Additionally, the bass is on the muddy side, their mid-range is slightly recessed, and their soundstage is not open or spacious sounding.
Excellent frequency response consistency. If the user is able to achieve an air-tight seal with these in-ears, then they should be able to get very a consistent performance each time. It should be noted that in-ears usually perform very consistently and knowing that, we performed only two re-seats for these headphones in order to decrease wear and tear on our dummy head.
Although the Mee audio X7 have an in-ear design that should passively isolate a bit more than on or over-ear headphones, they do not always create a good seal within the ear canal due to their slightly bulky earbuds. This lets a lot of noise seep into your audio and means they won't be the ideal headphones for commuting or to use in loud environments. On the upside, they barely leak even at max volume, so in noisy conditions, you could always mask some of the ambient noise if you turn the volume up.
Excellent leakage performance. Like most in-ears, the leakage of the X7 is concentrated in a narrow band in the treble range and is very quite.
Mediocre microphone performance. Speech recorded with the microphone of the Mee audio X7 will sound thin, muffled, but relatively easy to understand. In noisy environments though, they don't fare as well, and will most likely struggle to keep speech separate from ambient noise even on a busy street.
Mediocre recording quality. The dip in high-bass, centered around 150Hz, and the cut-off at 3.4KHz, results in a speech that sounds muffled and thin. Additionally, the region between LFE and HFE is captured inconsistently.
Sub-par noise handling. The Mee audio X7 achieves a speech-to-noise ratio of 10dB, meaning its microphone is not good at separating speech from ambient noise.
The Mee X7 have a decent wireless range and an average-at-best battery life. However, they won't be the ideal headphones to watch videos and game with due to their latency. They also do not have any software support so you can't customize or EQ them like some of the more recent in-ears form other headphones brands like Jaybird.
The Mee X7 have a mediocre battery life. They last longer than the other Mee in-ears we've tested but it won't be enough for heavy use throughout the day. They also take a bit of time to charge compared to other wireless in-ears and don't have an auto-off timer so they will run out relatively quickly if left connected to your Bluetooth device.
No compatible app.
Poor latency performance. The Mee audio X7 will not be the best headphones to watch videos and game since they have a substantial amount of latency that will slightly delay the audio with respect to the image.
The Mee X7 are best-used for sports, but they're versatile and compact enough to use as casual headphones that you can carry with you at all times. They have a decent audio reproduction although they may sound a bit too sharp for some. Unfortunately, they do not block a lot of noise so you may struggle a bit to hear what you're listening to in noisy environments or while commuting.
Average for neutral listening. They have a decent audio reproduction but the peaks in the high frequencies will sound a bit piercing, especially with tracks that are already a little bright. They also have closed-back, in-ear buds, which can't create a spacious soundstage. This means they won't be ideal for neutral listening but are sufficiently adequate for more casual use.
Average for commuting. They do not isolate much, which makes them less suitable for noisy environments. However, they're compact and fit into most pockets.
The Mee audio X7 are good headphones for sports. They have a stable in-ear fit with an ear hook design. They're wireless and small enough to carry around on your person wherever you go. However, they're not comfortable for everyone, and their control scheme could be improved.
Decent for office use. They don't leak much but won't block the chatter of a loud office unless you listen to audio at high than average volumes.
Subpar for gaming. They have a mediocre-at-best mic, lack customisation options and have a bit too much latency to be suitable for gaming.
