Meizu could also release EP31 earphones during Meizu Pro 5 launch

Remember that Meizu are originally an audio hardware maker and that they like to remind us of that fact with the release of new audio products. Well 23rd September might see the release of a new EP31 headphone.

Meizu started off their life as a MP3 player company, and even after they started to copy Apple, have launched earphones and audio centric products during their phone years. In honesty their recent audio devices haven’t been all that amazing. The Meizu MX4 Pro had average audio at best and their EP21 HD earphones are nothing to write home about either.

Gizchina News of the week

This doesn’t give us much hope about these rumoured Meizu EP31 earphones that could launch this week. Sources say the new earbud will be designed as a high-end flagship earphone and might cost as much as 499 Yuan ($78).

The design schematics show a earphone with silicon head and 3 button control built-in to the main cable. Judging from other earphone releases we can expect a kevlar wire and gold plated jack.

Xiaomi, Huawei, and other phone makers all offer similar earphones for around 100 Yuan with proven quality. Meizu might want to start off small before going big in this market.

    It might be their flagship, but $79 is nowhere near high-end. Earphones or more specifically, IEM like this model is, can go to upward of $2000.

    And yes, some people pay for it and think it’s worth it.

      I’m happy to pay way more, but not for Meizu earphones.

        Well, their earphones models are certainly not so well received among audiophiles. I’m willing to give this one a chance, but I’m skeptical, it’s probably going to be just okay for the price again, whereas other Chinese companies have been making breakthrough price/perf IEM at this price.

          I don’t think they are really marketing them towards audiophiles. They use the word “high end” as meaning to the average consumer. Competition for brands like Beats and Sol.

            In China people are more aware of other brands beside those.

              I realize that I was just using those two as examples…

    Not sure I would pay $79 for Meizu earphones. I bought a pair of Seinheser for $99 and they are the best I have ever used.

    And by the way, the mx4 pro had really decent audio quality…

    The headphones are another thing ^^
