NOTICE TO CUSTOMERS ABOUT COUNTERFEIT MEE AUDIO PRODUCTS
We have recently learned of counterfeit MEE audio M6 PRO in-ear monitors being sold by unauthorized distributors and resellers in various regions around the world.
While these products bear MEE audio logos and can appear extremely similar to the genuine articles at first glance, the internal components, assembly quality, and performance all fail to meet our standards. These products may also fail to meet safety regulations for materials or workmanship. We regard such products as infringement on our intellectual property rights and a violation of our registered trademarks, and will pursue all available legal actions against the manufacturers and sellers of these items.
Our aim has always been to deliver high-quality products to our customers at reasonable prices, and these unauthorized knock-offs run counter to these goals. While we have already launched our efforts to clear the marketplace of all knock-off MEE audio products, we also openly provide this information so that our customers can make educated buying decisions and ensure they are getting the performance and quality our brand is known for.
HOW TO AVOID COUNTERFEITS
- Avoid purchasing MEE audio products from any source other than those listed on our Where to Buy page
