MEElec - Yet Another IEM launch

Here is another upcoming MEElec IEM being officially announced. This time, it is the user tunable SP51. Some of you might recognize the same housing being used by Hippo VB before, though the new SP51 does have a lower price and a better cable. As of whether it will sound similar to VB or not is still a bit too early to tell, I do hope it can surpass the aging VB myself.

On other news - I have had the new MEElec HT-21 on-ear portable headphone for a few days now. All I can tell you is this is a surprisingly good headphone for the asking price and once again MEElectonics has done a great job on bring yet another bang for the buck product to the market. You can expect the full review to come after CES2011.

[UPDATE] Apparently the guys from Hippo ain't too happy that VB-like housing is being used on the SP51 as they just shoot me an email explaining to me that they are in fact the original designer of the VB housing.

[2nd UPDATE] MEElec stated that, although the housing is used by Hippo first, it is not an exclusive design but more of a generic supply. SP51 is using a different transducer and cable from VB, not to mention a different price point and targeted audiences.

The website does have Google Ads and Amazon Associates enabled (which I have no direct control over their content) - though I don't write review for a living, nor does the ads generates enough money to cover my breakfast (in fact, not even one breakfast per week).
