The MEE Audio M7 Pro In-Ear monitors fit anybody and have two drivers: a 10-mm moving-coil subwoofer and a full-range balanced armature for the mid-range and high frequencies. They have a frequency range of 10Hz to 20kHz and a sensitivity rating of 96dB @1kHz. Sensitivity is a measure of loudness versus input power.
The M7 Pro in-ears come with two replaceable 1.3m cables: one regular stereo cable and another with an inline microphone and remote for use with phones. The M7 Pros In-Ears use MMCX connectors to attach to the cables for a solid and sturdy connection and are fast becoming the defacto standard for in-ear monitors.
I liked the ComplyTM memory foam ear tips—you get two pairs of them plus five pairs of silicon tips. I also liked the MEE Audio M7 Pro’s sound quality and their light feel within my ears. The M7 Pros are transparent and the cables seem well made plus the over-the-ear memory wire retains its shape to secure them to your ears.
You get everything in the kit: the aforementioned stereo audio and headset cables, protective carrying case, four pairs of silicone ear tips, 1/4-inch adapter and user manual.
The MEE Audio M7 PRO is covered by a 1-year warranty and sells for $149.99 MSRP.
