I got mine. Not quite as good as my Aria. However, I like my music to have power and my Aria can be a tad too polite. For $50? Yes. Satisfied. (Bought direct from Linsoul, shipping took 11 days)

Thats interesting. I own the Starfield which are better than the Aria and I prefer the MELE. The Starfield are good but the MELE are making me grin ear to ear. Absolutely the iem under the $100 mark. And dare I say compare to many sets in the $300 to $400 range. Keep in mind the MELE were not designed as a $50 iem. They were designed as a $160-$200 set. There was some miscommunication on the part of Linsoul and Chris when the project was under way. So to keep the $50 price point, the packaging was downgradeda lower quality cable was included and less accesories were included. Even with a downgraded cable however I find this cable is actually usable unlike with most sets. This is a MUST HAVE no matter the budget.

Nonsense. So they were designed to cost $200 but due to some miscommunication they decided if we change the cable and packaging we can take $150 off? Do you hear how ridiculous that sounds? There's hype and there's hype lol. I'd loved to have seen the cable and packaging... Was the box made of real gold?

How's it vs the Sony MH750, both with tip rolling? I just obtained a genuine pair of that for $10; sound quality is great and it complements my tip-rolled Aria (technically proficient, airy sounding with enhanced mid-treble) very well

Nvm just saw a review saying it is only marginally better. Probably not worth the price increase from $10 or the little difference with the Aria's $70+ for a technically more capable set

My thoughts for anyone curious lows + mids are solid but high end lacks energy which is basically what BGGAR said I will add that drums sound AMAZING on these pretty solid overall for the price

Well if this is the exact tuning they like sure it could be worth $400 for them but in general it's OK for $50

We'll I don't know what to say. I prefer it to the Hana and several of the higher end ThieAudio sets. So no it's not fanboy hype.

Love my Tripowin TC01 but will never support anything with HBB name attached to it

Your loss. The Mele are outstanding even if they were selling for $160+. I have a shit load of iems. Some I would sell in a heartbeat. The MELE are KEEPERS. The cliche of "punching far above the price" applies X 1000 with the MELE.

No loss. I have the Shozy 1.4 and the Tripowin TC01. I'm good with wired. The Sony XM4 get most eartime. I've learned with budget IEMs it's really same sound, different shell.

They are not a single cent cheaper here than at Linsoul, where I bought them already (still waiting to be delivered though).

yeah... such has been the case with drop since they dropped the mass. I really dont know what this site actually offers anymore without its original niche of group buys. its really unfortunate, i used to love this place but prices are the same at many places that have better shipping and a return policy.

I got them because Bggar liked them and was curious how 3 DD's in a IEM would be and while they look cheap they are built well enough What's wrong with the connector type? It can take normal 2 pin also

I don't like the KZ, TRN, CCA style that takes a keyed wire connector. Other companies use a variation called QDC. I prefer my connectors straight and the KZ style has the wire shooting up at too high an angle preventing a proper fit for my ears. The MELE flush 2 pin or a recessed 2 pin like Moondrop uses is fine and what I prefer. Besides fit issues if the protruding plastic housing that holds the female connectors crack the wire will never stay plugged in and the earpiece is useless. I had a connector on a KZ ZSN PRO crack and the wire won't stay it at all. I think the plastic that's used is too brittle and basically deteriorates over time. My ZSN PRO is a little over 2 years old with minimal use so that's a dissapointment.
