The good: The MEElectronics Sport-Fi S6 Earphones deliver good sound for the money if you can get a tight seal. The earphones come with a nice set of accessories, including an extension cord and a nice carrying case.
The bad: Some people may have a hard time getting a comfortable fit and a tight seal, the lack of which hurts sound quality. There's no built-in microphone/remote for making calls.
The bottom line: While the MEElectronics Sport-Fi S6 Earphones are affordable and decent-sounding, with a nice set of accessories, they won't fit everyone equally well.

Build Quality :
Packaging : The packaging looks sleek and great. Gives the impressions of the IEM technically and general info about it.
IEM: The S6 earphones are very comfortably shaped, with large bodies that fit snugly into most ears and tips that go securely into the ear canal. To make them more secure, there are also flexible ear hooks built into the cables. The housings are made of plastic that feels rather durable. The housing is Sweat resistance for workout durability
Cable: They come with a modular cable, which essentially means a cable that can be separated into a small or large cable, perfect for either hooking into your armband or using your MP3 player around your waist. A shirt clip is on both cables if you need them, and the pressure they apply is good enough it won't unclip easily. The over-ear cables has a 2 inches of memory wire.
Microphonics: None unless you really really try. Excellent cable.
Comfort: Due to the housing and the memory cable, getting it to fit and seal properly is a pain. It needs some time to experiment with tips and insertion technique. Comply T400 is an expensive alternative, but comfort would be vastly improved.
Isolation: Perfect fit makes it a major noise isolating IEM. Triple Flanges improves the isolation considerably
Sound Quality: They share the same Sound quality with Meelectronics M6.
Amped / unamped: Not much of a difference, these are drived easily by even low power sources
Bass: Lows are S6's Strong points. Good deep low bass but not several tons of it. These feel so much lighter to listen to . It's there deep and low but no great hump of it rising toward the midbass range. This mid-bass hump gives a good overall balance, has great impact and body
Mids: Mids are much cleaner with a slight V shape. They are very evenly balanced in quantity to the highs and lows. Not too dry, not too wet. They sometimes get too sibilant at first. Burn-in compensates it somehow.
Highs: Many complain that s6's Highs are unbearable and too harsh. This is completely due to the fit. They arent that bad even though its their weakness. They are pretty much spot on in the quantity that should be here and they are detailed nicely
Soundstage: As usual for a dynamic it's pretty good. I'd place these as better than average with decent airyness.
Final Conclusion : Overall, the MEElectronics Sport Fi S6 are quite good if you are looking for a pair of headphones that stay in your ears while you are running. Not only do they have great sound performance and a very impressive design, but they are also extremely durable and can withstand very intense and sweaty workouts due to their sweat-proof design.
Best sporting IEM for its price!
by Kousthubha_Kumar on October 14, 2012
Pros: Solid Build Quality,Accessories, Customer Service, good all-round sound
Cons: Fit can be frustating for some, over-the-ear style might not suit for everyone
Summary: S6 was my second Meelec IEM after M6, which I was thoroughly impressed with, though it shares the same sound with m6(same signature), its a bit more less mid-recessed ...
Summary: S6 was my second Meelec IEM after M6, which I was thoroughly impressed with, though it shares the same sound with m6(same signature), its a bit more less mid-recessed than m6 in terms of SQ comparision. Cable is a LOT durable, stylish and sleeky than m6s. More accessories included.
I had monster isport before, I must say this is far better in terms of everything, they literally broke after a few months of usage, isolation wasnt that great, SQ isnt the best too. This IEM might just serve as a good cheap alternative for sporting activities like gym,running etc.
Heres a detailed review on S6 :
Accessories : Well, Meelectronics really cant go wrong in this part, they provide a solid package of Accessories for all of their products. S6 comes with
1) 2 Shirt clip(attached to IEM)
2) 6 pairs of silicon ear tips (3 sizes Single Flanges, 1 Double Flange and 2 sizes of Triple Flanges)- Tips are pretty much the best silicon tips Ive used
with, they are reasonably durable with good comfort
3) Hard clamshell carrying case- Pretty hard case on the outside with good soft material on inside making earphones secure to carry on the go
4) Extension cable
5) Neoprene Arm Band - Looks fancy and is made of good quality indeed.
Build Quality : Cable is pretty solid and has low-profile L-plug, Housings are made of plastic. The over-ear cables has a 2 inches of memory wire. Cable is a lot more durable than of m6, but is small(18 inches approx), an extension cable is provided though. Microphonics are pretty much non existent.
Isolation : This suprisingly isolates a lot, particularly with Triple Flanges,Double Flanges.
Comfort: This is where this IEM lags a bit, since its over-ear, the memory wire can cause fit issues for some. Experiment with different sized tips might
solve it. With a little knife work, memory wire can be removed making it wearing straight down which might solve it for some(with the expense of bit isolation), Comply T400 is another alternative which isolates well with good comfort (comfort is same as m6)
Signature: V-Type Signature
Mids: Mids are better than m6 has good clarity, range, extension, but still somewhat recessed
Highs: It has good crystal-clear detailing at top of the range, it is little bit bright and is relatively smoother
Bass: This is where S6 Shines, Bass Control is good for the price, mid-bass hump gives a good overall balance, has good impact and body
SoundStage: Pretty good with decent airiness
Final Verdict : S6 might be the best budget IEM for sport in 30-70$ range, they just sum up good as a package. Add the amazing Meelectronics Customer Support, you should not worry for techinal/breaking issues. They just have the best technical support to assist you with any problem and might just give the edge over the other IEMs at its price
Amazing sound quality and equal durability.

Pros: These headphones do an amazing job of staying in place during my workouts while also delivering high quality music to keep me motivated. Rain, shine, and snow, they have performed admirably.
Cons: I have yet to find any.

Summary: I began using the MEElectroincs Sport-Fi S6 headphones this summer while doing off-season training for the Team USA Skeleton Team. My workouts take me through all conditions as we do not stop for rain or snow and tend to work in extreme cold. Most headphones have a tendency to short out or just die when going from hot to cold rapidly. However the Sport-Fi S6's have proven a worthy advisory to extreme weather conditions while still performing extremely well. I highly recommend them to any level of athlete.
Side Note: They also work very well as in-ear monitors while playing percussion!
