Headphones Meelectronics M-Duo – an incredible bass and other advantages

Hardware Review

The company is always pleased Meelectronics users of its products quality / price ratio. We have already written about their reinforcement model A-161 , and a very good bluetooth-headset AF32 . The company recently introduced a new, unusual model M-Duo, built using two dynamic drivers. Let’s see what it can do.

In headphones use two coaxially arranged dynamic transducer, one of which is responsible for the bass, the second – for the mid and high frequencies. For correct operation of the company has developed its own crossover. M-Duo now positioned as the flagship of the second (in addition to A161) for those who like the sound of their handwriting line headphones M-series.


We have already considered dvuhdrayvernuyu dynamic model Brainwavz R1 , which has a very unusual and specific sound. Getting to the review M-Duo, I was expecting to hear something like that, but I was wrong.

Packaging and delivery

As the second flagship A161, M-Duo packed very efficiently. A beautiful box of thick black cardboard with a valve on the magnet on the box is put “jacket” of construction paper, all decorated in a black and blue colors. The packaging is very nice, stylish and yet not showy bright.


Inside the plastic cover on the tool tray are snakes and the headphones themselves. In a case hidden everything that is included in the package: a clothespin to attach the wires on clothing, instructions and 5 additional pairs of tips. In addition to the average single nozzle, the package includes the single nozzle small and large size, double the average, as well as medium and large three-lobed. Bits of gray, slightly transparent silicone, pleasant softness.

Package Includes regular, no frills, but also not to blame greed manufacturer.

Design and comfortable fit

Here is immediately visible quality work Meelectronics, the design worked well. Compact enough to dvuhdrayvernoy model body is made entirely of metal. The combination of black and electric-blue highlights the beneficial texture. The unusual shape, interesting and yet not showy sets it apart from the competition headphones.

Unusually designed plug – it T-shaped, with a beveled edge. It is not always easy, but it looks very, very interesting. Also unusual in shape and made a block splitter microphone headset button.

Общий вид

Wire seemingly subtle, but inside it is reinforced with Kevlar, so it is extremely durable, does not dubeet the cold and little inclined to the microphone effect.

I must say a special thank you to the developers for what is right earpiece marked by a dot, and it allows him to distinguish by touch.

Wearing headphones can be both directly and behind-way, with proper selection of nozzles wearing comfort, even for a long time, sound is also very good.

Вид сзади

Before listening to headphones were heated for 48 hours.

In the experience of listening to other dvuhdrayvernyh dynamic headphones, I was expecting a pronounced V-shaped frequency response with a dip in the midrange. It is worth to say that I was wrong. The failure of the midrange really is, but in the M-Duo it is not as pronounced and is not a dominant feature of the sound.

Без насадок

The first thing that surprised by the data headphones – it’s the bass. It is stunningly deep and very detailed, listening to M-Duo almost believe in the figures claimed by the manufacturer frequency range (at least the lower part). On the track «Bass I Love You», which I often use as a test for the bass, the bass pounding away somewhere in the depths of the brain and resonate there, the headphone is quite rare, and for “vnutrikanalnikov” – and even more so. In this case, all this power is well controlled and does not turn into a complete mess, though on some tracks like brutal metal – still a lot of bass. Juicy and deep bass makes for a fresh look at some of the genres. Of course, they are good for electronic music, especially EDM with all subtypes and genres of rap, most modern pop music. I liked the sound of M-Duo in such genres as jazz and instrumental music – all the same bass adds liveliness of real instruments.

Сравнение с Re400

Average frequency in M-Duo priopuscheny, but not critical, as the effect of deep failure of the R1 Brainwavz not also pleased that the mids are detailed and well muffled bass.

HF are quite good, they do not allow the headphones to slide into the abyss of a dark sound and complete sound picture. Sibilance present, but rarely, and with the heating of them gets smaller. At around 5 kHz there is a failure, giving the sound of M-Duo’s own handwriting sound, reminding me a bit for some reason the sound from headphones Dunu.

С плеером RoCoo

Surprisingly well M-Duo cope with the construction of “scenes” – they do not sound trapped, instruments well separated.

In general, the sound is not universal, but for many genres – it is much better than what they have to offer “simple» IEM.

Общий вид

Headphones are designed for any sources, I tried them with the iPod Nano 6G, iPhone 4, Sansa Clip Zip – sound degradation is observed. Not a very good combination of headphone with too-bright players – get too much sibilance.

С усилитилем

Headset microphone is good, not in the noisiest environments can hear the speaker properly.

Headphones are sold on the company’s website for $ 80 . Given their great bass and good sound rest of the range, for lovers of bass-driven genres – these headphones are a godsend. Add to this the presence of a headset, interesting design and good workmanship – their purchase is more than justified.
