MEIZU EP52 – Review



| Bluetooth | 10mm Driver | IPX5 | aptX |

? MEIZU EP52, a sports neckbud loved by many.

The MEIZU EP52 features 10mm dynamic drivers with bio-cellulose diaphragm, an IPX5 waterproof rating and aptX compatibility.

The MEIZU EP52 is a Bluetooth earphone with a neckbud design, which means that it has a cable/band that sits around the neck – inside the neckband there is a 130mAh rechargeable battery and the Bluetooth chip.

The design of the MEIZU EP52 offers an aesthetically pleasing tri-colored design (black, red and silver) and great ergonomics that grant a secure and comfortable fit in a fashionable look.

Recently we reviewed the MEIZU EP52 Lite but do not confuse them with the model being reviewed now, they are 2 different models.

The back plate of the MEIZU EP52 is metallic and has magnets that allows them to attach to each other, this is something that we have already seen in models such as the:

Accessories & Packaging

The MEIZU EP52 unboxing results in 3 pair of silicone eartips, 3 pair of hooks/wings attachments, an USB charging cable and a rubberized pouch with a magnetic closure system.

Everything comes inside a nice book-alike packaging with a sliding front.



Bass & Sub Bass

The MEIZU EP52 bass is fun and punchy with a vivacious response that tends to a stronger mid-bass than deep sub-bass. Nonetheless, their lower frequencies offer a good ratio of mid-bass and sub-bass with no prominent unbalance between them.

Depth and punch will hardly fall short with the MEIZU EP52 unless you are looking for a basshead earphone.

With an EQ huge mid-bass punch is revealed and crazy deep sub-bass but also expect a very bass centered sound.

Mids & Vocals

The MEIZU EP52 have super warm mids with noticeable mid-bass bleed but non-distant male vocals.

Male and female vocals are alive and present despite the congestion on the lower end of their midrange.

Higher mids are crisp and clear while harsh peaks are not extreme but can show up if the track has peaks in harshness ranges.

With an EQ there is an important improvement over lower mids congestion and a clear reduction of mid-bass bleed.

Higher mids will get very harsh if boosted up, it is recommended not to EQ them up.



Highs & Treble

The MEIZU EP52 highs are darkish with some detail, yet they are not overly dark providing sufficient brightness for many average-demanding consumers.

Piercing and sibilant highs are difficult to predict, on some fatiguing-prone tracks they will never show up while on other ones both will be frequent.

An EQ shows a remarkable clearing up of highs with a much brighter, open and detailed personality but expect more frequent fatiguing peaks.




Sound Leak

The sound leaking out of the MEIZU EP52 is fairly under control with a leakage level substantially below most average earphones.

Sound Isolation

The sound isolation provided by the MEIZU EP52 is noticeable and efficient, with the potential of providing absolute isolation from the environment, if volume is dialed higher than moderate-high levels.

The earpieces of the MEIZU EP52 are very small and thanks to their flat and thin profile they are able to fit flush with the ears and securely as to hold their position during very intense activities and sports.

Their sports capabilities get increased by their stable neckband and tight fitting earpieces with the aid of the rubberized, flexible wings/hooks – and, of course, their waterproof IPX5 rating.

Response to Equalization

The response to EQ of the MEIZU EP52 gave them a clearer sound signature (if EQ’ed for this sound) or a very aggressive and intense bassy one (if EQ’ed for bass).
