MUSE HiFi ME1 Review – Well balanced DLC 1DD + Knowles 1BA earphone


I received MUSE HiFi ME1.

Good balance and resolution

MUSE HiFi ME1 is a collaborative IEM model between MUSE HiFi and Hiby.

It features a DLC dynamic driver and Knowles flagship BA driver.


Included is a 0.78mm 2-pin cable, 2.5mm and 4.4mm adapters, earpieces (sizes S, M, and L), low-frequency ear tips size M, protective pouch, and instructions.


I like that it comes with various earpieces in different sizes and colors.


The cable is designed to hang easily over the ear.


The jack part is self replaceable and can be used with 3.5mm, 2.5mm, or 4.4mm depending on the DAC/DAP.


It has a sensitivity of 108 dB, an impedance of 32 ohms, and a frequency response range of 10 Hz-40 kHz.

The shark grille is said to regulate the pressure inside the cavity for a more natural sound output.

The 5-axis CNC-machined shell is slightly cool to the touch.


It weighs 17g.



The positioning is good, and the vertical and horizontal movement was clearly perceived.

I feel that the sound is heard rather close to the center of my head.


The bass has a strong, heavy resonance, and bass and other sounds are rich, and the drums sound powerful and pounding.

The whispered voice of the vocalist can be heard clearly and lustrously in the ear.


High hats and other treble sounds clear without being crushed, and the resolution is very good.

Bass and vocals are in excellent harmony, and all registers are clearly audible.

There is no stinging of vocals.

The MUSE HiFi ME1 earphones offer a good balance of bass, treble, and all vocals.

Bass is rich and powerful, and treble is clear.

Personally, I prefer to hear all frequencies evenly and clearly rather than just the bass in my earphones, so the MUSE HiFi ME1 is my favorite.

MUSE HiFi ME1 is available at HiFiGo for $169.
