MEElectronics HT-21 Review

| May 10, 2012 | 0 Comments

Price: $40 (MSRP $40)
Wear style: On-ear

In Short: The HT-21 is not a stand-out in any particular category but it performs admirably across the board. The sound is slightly dark and aggressive.

Quick overview:

The HT-21 is MEElec’s first on-ear headphone and stays true to their bang/buck philosophy. Its construction is almost purely plastic (contributing to its light weight) but feels very solid considering this. Clamping force is low which makes them very comfortable over long periods of time and the folding features make it portable and convenient for any type of travel.

Onto the sound, the HT-21 gives a slight emphasis to the bass and mids. The low end has surprising impact for a such a small compact set, and the quality doesn’t lack either. It can be equalized up without distortion to higher volumes without trouble if you find anything lacking. The mids are clear and forward with a touch of warmth due to the strong bass. Treble presentation is similar to the mids and flaunts some sparkle which gives them an overall balanced feeling across the frequency range.

The HT-21 is a solid choice under $50 and will satisfy those looking for an energetic, non-fatiguing, ultra-portable headphone.
