Sound Signature of Shanling ME200 IEM 

The bass of ME200 IEM was phenomenal with much energy and very good separation. The mids were much nicer, cleaner and prominent. The vocals sound much warmer than ME100- you can listen to how smooth and pure the sound actually is. The highs also sounded much more clear – the highs are crisp and clean and yet not overbearing or harsh. However, they are also a little loose for highs with fewer waves and tension. ME200 is a natural and warm style with very good performance on popular music, rock, J-Pop and female vocals.
