Though we generally don't recommend buying earphones from no-name companies due to inconsistent quality and sound performance issues, MEElectronics is offering three models - AI-M6 ($40), AI-M9 ($20), and AI-M9 with Built-in Microphone ($30). The AI-M6 model uses a plastic in-ear molding with a memory wire to go over your ear, while AI-M9 uses a metal in-ear molding with cabling that can hang down from the ear, or wrap around its top. Each comes with a carrying case, a cable manager, a headphone adapter, and various rubber tips; the AI-M6 also includes foam tips, and the microphone-laden version of AI-M9 includes a 2.5mm adapter for use with cell phones in addition to its large in-line button and microphone box.


Editors' Note: iLounge only reviews products in "final" form, but many companies now change their offerings - sometimes several times - after our reviews have been published. This iLounge article provides more information on this practice, known as revving.
