MEE Audio Sport-Fi X7: Gotta Go Fast!

1 comment:

Intro


TL;DR: MEE Audio's (as of this writing) flagship Bluetooth IEM offers an impressive sound quality at its price, but fails in the end due to major connectivity issues.

Before I begin, I would just like to thank Mike at MEE Audio (yep, not MEElectronics anymore) for providing the review sample of the Sport-Fi X7 in this review. Please note that I am neither affiliated with MEE or any of its staff, nor am I being compensated for this review (other than being given the opportunity to keep the review sample). Everything in the following review is strictly my own honest opinion unless otherwise stated, and all pictures are taken and own by me. Also, please take everything stated in the review with a grain of salt. Thanks!

Having had a wonderful impression of the current state of Bluetooth-powered sound with the Brainwavz BLU-100, I felt it was time to take a look at something a bit higher-end. Fast-forward about a couple weeks later, and here I am with the Sport-Fi X7. Will these $80 Bluetooth IEMs catch up to the competition, or will they get left biting the dust? Read on and find out!

MrSpeakers' Alpha Dog

No comments:

Introduction:

This review features only my own honest personal opinion as such should be taken with a grain of salt.

To start off, I'm the proud owner of the following headphones:
  • AKG K240
  • Beats Studio (first gen)
  • Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro (32 ohm)
  • HiFiMAN HE-300
  • JVC HA-MR77XE
  • JVC HA-SZ2000
  • Koss Portapro
  • MrSpeakers Mad Dog 3.2
  • Philips Fidelio X2
  • Sennheiser HD650
  • Sennheiser HD800
  • Xiaomi Pistons V2
  • Xiaomi Pistons V3

And the newest addition, the Mr Speakers Alpha Dog.

A little backstory: In 2014, I went to Canjam Europe. Mr. Speakers was there, showing off his Alpha Dog. I tried it, and didn't like it at all. A long time passed before someone I know sent me an e-mail a few days ago and let me know that he was going to sell his Alpha Dogs for 450 euros (They're 600 euros around here). As I am a huge Mr Speakers Fan, I just went with it and I'm very happy I did, as these might be my new favorite headphones.

On to the real review now.
