According to MEElectronics their new Sport-Fi S6 Headphones are the complete workout package. As you’ll notice from the pictures below we spent a lot of time testing these new sport headphones through several intense workouts on the tennis court. The question is, how do they stack up?
Super Secure Fit. We absolutely love the fit for these earbuds. Never even came close to falling out.
Perfect Cord Lengths. MEElectronics supplies 2 different cord lengths, 1 for an armband and 1 for a waistband.
Lightweight. You won’t even notice they’re their after a couple minutes.
Ultimate Sports Kit. You won’t need to go out and purchase anything else, as it comes with a carrying case, multiple ear tips, sport clip, armband and more!
Poor Armband Design. We were really hopeful for a nice armband since this is one of the few sports headphones that comes with one. Unfortunately the armband doesn’t allow for ease in changing songs, especially if you are using an iPhone.
When we first heard MEElectronics was coming out with a new pair of earbuds targeted for working out we got excited. They’re known for packing a ton of value with an affordable price, and we were also a fan of their M6 Headphones, which are very similar to the S6.
So, how did the Spor-Fi S6 sound? Out of the box they sounded average, nothing great, nothing bad. After about 20-25 hours of burn in they started to sound a lot better. The HIs are very sharp and crystal clear and the MIDs and LOWs are very smooth. We were hoping for a bit more bass, but overall we didn’t have any real complaints about the sound quality.
We mentioned above the the S6 have a great fit, but it took a little time to find out what works best. They come with 6 sets of ear tips:
- (2) tree tops (S/L)
- (1) cylinder
- (3) round buds (S/M/L)
We tried them all and ended up liking the smaller tree tops the best in terms of comfort. A tip from our Audiologist is to pull your ear slightly back and up to get a better fit for any in-ear canal earbuds. This worked like a charm.
The headphones themselves are equipped with memory wire which allows you to shape the wire to hook around your ear or however else you would like it. Honestly, we didn’t have to change much. The earbuds kind of twist into place because they are designed at a slight angle (to help achieve a better fit, see picture below) and the wire sits naturally just over and behind your ear.
9mm driver with no ear tip attached, angled slightly for a better fit
It might have been a little better if the wire was about an inch longer (in order to hook it full around your ear), but overall we’re big fans of this design because of how lightweight it makes everything.
In addition to the earbuds, the armband also had a great fit. We used it with an iPod and iPhone. We were able to put the iPhone into the armband with the Otterbox Case on or without, so no problems there. The only problem with the armband is it’s a pain to change songs if you’re using an iPhone.
There are no in-line controls, so you’ll either need to have your playlist in order or you’ll have the pull the iPhone out to switch to another song.
Bottom line is these are a great pair of sports headphones that are lightweight, comfortable and fit securely. MEElectronics has included just about everything but the kitchen sink in the sport kit. As an audiophile you could find better sound quality, but you’ll be paying 2-3 times the price of the S6 which retail at $49.99.
