MoreMe Studio Headphones
The MoreMe Studio Headphones are a good sounding headphone at a disposable price! Everyone needs a few extra sets of headphones in the studio, MoreMe has you covered!
They're called MoreMe headphones because they bring out the detail range of frequencies that you need to hear when you're tracking. MoreMe headphones use 32 Ohm, 2-1/2" drivers (a little over 60mm), so they'll work with almost any amplifier and you can use several pair without loading anything too hard. They can hit 105dB (loud enough to cause ear damage). They have a "Stereo/Mono" switch with easily detachable earpieces, so that two people can use one set of phones (for recording choirs and backup singers). They also have metal adjustable earcup holders (not plastic), so you can bend them to clamp on your head really tight. The MoreMe's have pretty decent isolation, and a low enough price (i.e., dirt cheap) to ensure that even the smallest home studios can afford to have a few sets around without robbing their piggy banks.
A nice little touch: the MoreMe labels are color-coded. Most people don't realize that phones with single cords always have the cord coming out of the left earpiece. Like Sony, MoreMe made the label for the left earpiece blue, and the right earpiece label red (red usually stands for right).

What We Think
So what's the downside? They have a damn short coil cord, a 1/8" and 1/4" adaptor (which can actually save them from being stepped on). No, they don't sound as good as the Sonys, Sennheisers or the AKGs. But for tracking, they're good enough (and cheap enough) for most people to use and get outstanding results.
The manufacturer claims 30Hz to 18,000kHz, but it's actually more like 30 or 40Hz to around 15 or 16kHz. The Studio Deluxe headphones have a little more bass extension, and slightly smoother response. We wouldn't recommend using either of them for final mixes or mastering (We wouldn't use any phones for that), but for tracking, they work great (or at least, they work "good enough")

For the price of the headphones, there's not much to complain about for the sound quality. They're made to be tracking headphones, and they really do the job well. Great isolation. Cord is very short, however, and the connectors are inconsistent. We get a lot of problems with the signal cutting in and out.
I was trying to find an alternative to the wonderful Equation EP3070 headphones Front End used to sell. These definitely aren't a viable alternative for those wonderful, cheap headphones. The More Me headphones have a poor sound quality and are quite uncomfortable. Just the opposite of the EP3070's. It was a total waste of $20. If you're considering buying these, I recommend that you, like me, continue searching other alternatives for a great pair of cheap headphone. If you find one, let me know.
If you own a studio, these are great in-expensive tracking headphones. They are built well and do the job. These should not be used for mixing in any capacity....
