British music and sound specialists, Meters Music, has launched the new M-Ears in-ear headphones. The M-Ears’ sound performance was developed in collaboration with Adam Clayton, bass player in U2 and one of the world’s most successful and popular musicians over the last forty years.
The M-Ears are the latest addition to the Meters’ 2017 audio range – which began with the groundbreaking OV-1 headphones. The Meters Music team also trades successfully in the pro audio/musical instrument sector – in its guise as parent company, Ashdown Engineering – making bass and guitar amplifiers for many of the world’s most popular and legendary musicians such as the Sir Paul McCartney bands bass player Brian Ray, U2's bassist Adam Clayton, Foo Fighters bass player Nate Mendel, Biffy Clyro's front man Simon Neil and bass player James Johnston, System of a Down's bass guitarist Shavo Odadjian and many more.
Speaking of his collaboration with the Meters team, Adam Clayton says,
“I love the Ashdown team’s approach to sound. I’ve been using their bass amps in the studio and on tour with U2 for years now, and the sound I get from them is superb. So, I was very happy to work with them on the development and tuning of their new ‘M-Ears’ headphones.”
The Meters team created a considerable number of samples, each tuned differently and with varying performance characteristics. Having tested them all at home and while on tour with U2, Adam Clayton picked the final version which is available now as the M-Ears. He says, “I listened to a whole range of samples they gave me for testing, and eventually chose the version now launched as the Meters M-Ears, because it had everything you want: precision, clarity and musicality.”
The M-Ears feature smart leather styling, which comes in three colours – Black, Tan and Red. They utilise magnets that clip the two earbuds together when you’re not using them. These magnets are strong enough to hang on the back of your neck while not in use, for a completely tangle-free headphones experience.
Speaking of the development of the M-Ears, Meters CEO Mark Gooday commented, “We collaborate closely on sound with the world’s finest musicians, so we know Adam well. When we decided to develop the M-Ear headphones, I knew the quality of his musicianship, and trusted his ears completely, so I asked him to advise and help determine the sound of the final design. And the results are every bit as good as I’d hoped.”
Costing just £49.99, the M-Ears are the perfect summer travel companion, as well as stunning value for money delivering exceptional sound thanks to the involvement and endorsement of one of the world’s most credible and successful musicians.
