Let me begin with a disclaimer. I used the MEElectronics Sport-Fi X6 Wireless Bluetooth headphones for about 2 weeks on a daily basis when I was both working out and at home. They come in only the color scheme of black on red unfortunately, so if you don’t like the look of them, then you’re out of luck. The Sport-Fi X6’s are priced at $79.99, but you can currently get them on sale for $59.99 on MEElectronics website. At this price, the X6’s are some of the cheapest in their class and may be worth your look if you are on a budget.

The X6’s come in a small white box with nothing too special to mention about it other than that it contains everything you need to know about the product. Upon opening up the package you will notice that the contents of the box include the Sport-Fi X6’s themselves, a hard carrying case, and some spare ear tips just in case the ones from the factory don’t fit quite right. The box doesn’t include anything else besides your usual stack of Manuals, Warranties, and information pamphlets.
The X6’s are sweat and water resistant so you will not have to worry about damaging them while jogging on a hot day or in the rain. Surprisingly the driver units stayed in my ears rather well and were no where near as heavy as I expected them to be for their size. However this is where problems begin to arise. The X6’s where an absolute pain to get comfortable situated. It took me about 15 minutes the first time I used them to find a way to let them rest comfortably. This is probably a result of the all plastic build which also makes them feel rather cheap to the touch, but they do feel sturdy and durable. There is a micro USB port on the side for charging, which takes about 3 hours to fully charge, and a power/multifunction button on the back of the device
After finally getting them comfortably situated in my ears, I proceeded to attempt using them without use of the actual instructions. This turned into a futile effort and made me feel plain dumb because I couldn’t get them to do or say anything to prove that they were on or even functional. After consulting the directions I held the power button for about 5 seconds and the unit spoke to me, announcing that it was on. When I started listening to music on them, I was blown away by how powerful the bass was. It isn’t overpowering, but it has a depth that is difficult to explain. Unfortunately that excitement was short lived as the highs are too sharp and more prominent than they should be even after heavy EQ-ing.
The Sport-Fi X6 Bluetooth headphones are a very good pair of Bluetooth headphones and some of the better headphones I have used to date when it comes to sound. However the high’s being too sharp and the incredibly frustrating and uncomfortable fit detract from the experience as a whole. For the price at $79.99, I feel like they are a wonderful, yet cheap, Bluetooth headset. If you are looking for a premium headset though similar to the JayBird Blue Buds, you are going to find better Bluetooth headphones elsewhere.
