These used to be my go to pair, but sadly the mic seems to now have a mind of its own, stopping and starting playback at will. hopefully the PX won't have this issues. I do really like the MEE sound.
Um, can I actually get a reply please?

I have the original A151 with no inline mic and love them. As the reviews have stated, these are not for bass heads. But mids and highs are great. The bass does come out more if paired with an amp (I have an old Fiio E11). Nevertheless, for the clarity you get with these, great bang for the buck...I'm getting another pair just so I have the inline mic :) . But I must say that although the $35.99 for these is great price, the MSRP of $74.99 is misleading. MEE has these on their website at an MSRP of $49.99. http://www.meelec.com/A151P_Balanced_Armature_In_Ear_Headphone_2nd_Gene_p/ep-a151p-bk-mee.htm
...so you are getting roughly a $15 savings.

Mine actually already shipped and according to the tracking info its scheduled to arrive Saturday. MUCH sooner than I expected to get it, so totally worth the savings.

nice, good for you, i'm gonna keep on waiting til I get to see IEM's of my likings, so far i've bought 4 diff earphones from Massdrop and they're always ahead of the delivery date which is good.
If only these shipped to Brazil...
Could anyone compare these to the ECCI PR100 MKIIs?
I have a set of the 1st gen 151's and, a set of the bluetooth on ear headphones from MEE. These headphones are amazing. The balanced driver takes away from the bass side of things but the clarity on my 1st gen is fantastic for the highs and mids. I was honestly blown away with the detail I was missing with my other headphones before switching to these.
I did have some issues with my bluetooth headphones and MEE was super quick to replace the headphones at no charge and advanced shipped the headphones with a return label.
I would recommend MEE to anyone.
I know not in the same price range, but how do these compare to the SE215's for sound and comfort? I just did the K553 drop but want something more portable also.
How do these compare to the Vsd3s?? The in-line mic might just sell these to me..

Good to hear. I've heard good things about the Vsd3s and I just love their design but no in-line mic sucks.
Any idea when these would arrive? I leave out of town on the 7th of May and would like to have these before then..

The wire on the VSD3's are incredibly fragile (no strain reliefs), and tend to get tangled extremely easily. I wouldnt recommend them to be used on the go, since the wire can't take a beating.
These have been getting good reviews on headfi http://www.head-fi.org/products/meelectronics-a151p-2nd-generation
Oops, shipping date fixed, thanks for pointing it out.
As for pictures, we haven't gotten a 2nd Gen unit in to shoot yet to completely revamp the page. Below's a stock picture of the A151P 2nd Gen, which is what is being offered in this drop.

Massdrop, can you update the listing with the correct pictures and estimated shipping date?
The photos on the description page are showing the a151 first gen; theyre selling the second gen which includes the inline mic and L-shaped jack.
There are tons of reviews floating around the internet on the first gen, a few about the second gen. Look them up if you want some insight.
Coming from vsonic vsd3's and meelectronics m6's, I'm pretty curious about them.
The description says it has an inline mic, but the jack in the photo isn't one for a mic. What's up? Also the reviews from the previous drop were fairly lousy... Any good/great reviews?
Opinions on these, coming from a pair of SE215s?
Sounds incredibly tinny and hollow. Bass is almost not existent - I have to crank my bass boost to 100% to make it tolerable. Highs are an improvement over my Sennheiser CX300-II - much clearer sound. Yet I would have been better off with buying second pair of SoundMAGIC PL50 which sound incredible compared to these.
I've been using the A151 nearly daily since April 2011, and other than replacing the 3.5mm jack, they've been absolutely amazing in sound and build quality. I was paranoid that eventually they're gonna bite the dust and bought the A151P off of this drop as a backup set. I just tried them out and they sound horrendous compared to the 1st gen. Hollow, no character, and very distant sounding. I'm gonna plug them into my PC and let them run a few days. Hopefully they just need to be worked in..
This combined with the 3 pairs of A161P I went through (1 new, 2 RMA, all broke at the cable relief on the left ear) before they finally pulled the product has a long term customer worried for future products.

No noticeable change for the better. Even running them off of a Bravo V2 made little difference. I think it's safe to say that Meelec really dropped the ball on these. Another thing I noticed was that the button for the mic rattles around like crazy and it transfers that rattle straight through the wires to your ear. To be fair I don't know if the first gen A151p models had the same issue since I have the A151.
All in all, I would rather pay the $75 I paid originally for the amazing sound than save $35 and get crap.

Is it possible we got a lemon batch? Box advertises a slightly warm tone, but mine is no where near a warm tone. I've burned ut in for 100+ hours already and no signs of it going better. Bass is almost not present on mine as well.
Highs can get harsh and the deep lows seem really distorted. Just used them on a 4 hour flight, two movies. These are just okay.
I'm pretty disappointed ... maybe they don't good for the type of music I listen to :(
just got mine :)
Received and they are great.

Really? Jeez, my tracking hasn't even updated beyond 'Shipping Label Created'
Quick update for the group. The vendor let us know that all of the order will be prepared tonight and will be picked up first thing tomorrow. Tracking has been uploaded, but will not show progress for 24-48 after pickup tomorrow. These will be shipping directly from the vendor to you and should be at you doors very soon!

We placed the order for The MEElectronics A151 IEM shortly after the drop ended.
Our vendor will be preparing it for shipment.
The moment we receive confirmation regarding the shipping schedule from the vendor, we will provide you all with updated information.
Expect an update from us on 12/8 or sooner if something comes up.
Coincidence that the price of these including shipping is the same as on amazon with free shipping right now?
I have had a set of these for a couple years now. I haven't found anything that comes close in clarity. I still use mine daily, and highly recommend them.

What else have you used ?
I dont have either. In general i would expect ttpod to have better lows. Mids and high to be more detailed in a151 due to ba drivers.
This versus the TTPOD?
I had a pair of these for a while (bought at $50) and loved them. Amazing cable, great isolation, great fit (I have small ears and it can be hard). My old ones died due to sweat build up messing up the drivers (don't exercise with them). So without a doubt I'm jumping on.
A word of warning though: They are not bass heavy. I haven't listened to the new generation, but if MEElectronic is following the same sound (as they say) the signature should be the same. They have great define bass, but nothing that's going to slam against your skull. Neutral would be a good term for them. Their greatest strength is in the highs, mids, detail and speed.
Frequency. Response. Looks spectacular. For 2nd gen.
