In recent years, some internet brand company have popularized “cross-border” production. Taking the earphones field as an example, some terminal brands in other fields have begun to launch their own earphones, and then add intelligent Internet of Things, cost-effective marketing points, but when you Listen carefully to their sound quality, I can’t flatter them.
If you are looking for a pair of earphones that are not homogenized, you might as well take a look at Shanling’s new HIFI earphones——ME500. Shanling is a veteran audio manufacturer with a 31-year history in China. ME500 is a mid-to-high-end HIFI wired earphones launched by Shanling, which can be seen from its “double-acting iron + single-acting coil” sound structure.
The sound quality of a pair of earphones depends largely on its sound structure. Shanling ME500 earphone adopts a combination of dual cavity, dual magnet, single moving coil unit + Lou’s double moving iron unit. After Hybrid technology electronic frequency division processing, each sound unit corresponds to the high, middle and low frequency bands.
The excellent mid-to-high frequency is the main competitive point of mid-to-high-end HIFI earphones. For this reason, ME500 earphones use two American Lou’s high-performance moving iron units TWFK-30017, and they have been tuned by Shanling and Lou’s acoustic team. Ensure that they show rich details and transparency in the resolution and transient response of the mid and high frequencies, and reduce the appearance of distortion.
The moving coil unit is also a sound unit that cannot be ignored in the earphones, because current users like to listen to rock, electronic music, DJ and other rhythmic music, which are all affected by the moving coil unit. Although the ME500 has only one dual cavity and dual magnet single moving coil unit, but its structure and material are not simple, for example, its magnetic induction intensity exceeds 1T, and the low-frequency vibration is more intense.
If the sound unit is the “heart” of the ME500, then the high-density brass body cavity is the “skeleton” of the ME500. Its internal brass composition is particularly high, which can effectively suppress the diffuse reflection of sound waves inside the cavity and let The sound is softer and mellow, reducing the interference of noise.
Wire is an aspect that mid-to-high-end HIFI earphones will talk about, because of its high degree of DIY. Shanling ME500 earphones use Japanese Furukawa’s eight-strand high-fidelity oxygen-free copper and silver-plated oxygen-free copper mixed braided wire, coupled with the MMCX expansion interface at the end of the wire, which can be replaced or upgraded. This can be said to be one for earphone lovers. It’s a big “surprise”, because different grades or styles of cables will have a certain impact on the sound hearing. You can replace or upgrade the ME500 earphone cables by yourself to create your favorite sound quality.
Shanling also officially launched a balanced cable, the specific model is EL1-25B, using Japanese Furukawa single crystal copper wire, left and right channels separated, independent grounding four-wire design, eight-strand 22-core hand-woven, brass plug, expansion The MMCX interface can improve the purity of the sound while improving the sound details, which complements the ME500 earphones.
In terms of wearing, Shanling ME500 earphones also show the level that a mature manufacturer should have. First, it adopts a round-ear design for the wire, and then the earphone cavity has been ergonomically optimized in many places, so it is still comfortable to wear for a long time. In addition, ME500 earphones have passed Japanese Hi-Res Audio certification, and the sound effect is absolutely guaranteed.
Finally, let’s take a look at the unexpected selling points of Shanling ME500 earphones. The first is a gift-level custom metal storage box. The upper cover is made of 2.5D tempered glass and the bottom is made of carbon fiber panel, which is not only good-looking, but also effective to protect ME500. The earphone sets are equipped with 5 kinds of equalization, vocal, low frequency, sound field, memory foam, etc., so that you can easily “DIY” your own music program.
