MEElectronics just released its M6 Pro in-ear monitors in a new smoke colour. Like the original clear model we reviewed a few months back, the M6 Pro Smoke is a detachable in-ear monitor set that comes with a host of accessories including extra ear tips, an extra cable, and a clamshell carrying case.
At just under US$50 for the entire set, the M6 Pro Smoke is a great value and a good introduction to the usually expensive world of in-ear monitoring (IEM). DJing with IEMs takes a bit of getting used to, especially if you’ve always used headphones while mixing, but they help in a pinch when you’re gigging at a venue without decent booth monitors, and could also potentially save your hearing when used at very low volume levels compared to cranking up your headphones.
• The MEElectronics M6 Pro Smoke is now available for US$49. Check the MEElectronics website for more details.
