Tripowin has partnered with one of the legendary audio reviewers in the audiophile world, “Bad Guy, Good Audio Reviews” (also known as Hawaian Bad Boy), to develop the next ultra-performance, budget in-ear monitor that will shake the market. Tripowin has been producing some of the most popular audio products for international brands for years, and this technological knowhow, combined with HBB’s years of experience with thousands of HiFi audio products, has created the perfect storm - the Mele. Designed firstmost with the audiophile community in mind, Project Mele promises supreme audio performance and professional tuning at a budget price accessible by all.
he Mele utilizes a first of its kind Accutune dynamic driver. Designed by the Tripowin R&D team specifically for Project Mele, the Accutune driver features a premium 10mm graphene membrane suspended by a completely redesigned voice coil over a dual magnet system. Unlike typical dynamic drivers that rely on the earphone’s housing shape for tuning, the Accutune driver is designed with a precisely calculated acoustic cavity built into the driver itself, allowing us to achieve pin-point tuning accuracy. By being able to determine the sound of the driver irrespective of the housing shape, perfect left-right unit matching is now possible - a task that has been the pitfall for many manufacturers before. The capability to accurately customize the acoustic chamber of the driver has further given us the chance to dictate the specific technical properties of the sound, culminating in an extremely high-resolution and spacious sounding stagefeel.
The Mele was tuned with the legendary BLON BL03 in retrospect. Once hailed for its incredible price-to-performance value, the BL03 took the global market by the storm. With help from HBB, the Mele takes a similar beloved sound signature, but with greater emphasis on the sub-bass for punchier kick drums and bass lines, slightly less mid-bass for a cleaner and more natural mid frequencies, and a more balanced treble transition. Most significantly, the utilization of our Accutune driver significantly enhances the technical performance from its predecessors, improving the soundstage depth, resolution, and detail retrieval. The Mele is the rebirth of a legend.
The final task of Project Mele was to combine an incredible sound in a housing that would be durable and elegant. We chose an extremely light yet durable 7 series aluminum alloy that has been precisely CNC milled. It is the same material and build process utilized in multi-thousand dollar in-ear monitors. Particular attention was placed in ergonomic design, with specific efforts placed into ensuring the nozzle length was suitable for a secure fit. The Mele is as comfortable as it is incredible to listen to.
The Mele comes standard with 2-pin connectors that allow cable swapping. A premium 4-core OCC copper cable is included to bring out the best of Mele’s sounds.

I received the MELEs in the mail today and I can categorically say I am blown away by the tuning of these 50 dollar earphones. They are performing wayyyy above the price. The bass is articulated, has good slam and has excellent extension, and just warm enough to be fruity. Brilliant!
My fiance tried these first and instantly loved them. I tried them the next day and was blown away. They do something that others over 10x the price don't do. They are more than worth their price. HBB seriously tuned these to perfection. I wish all brands tuned their iems to his playlist.
I bought these on a whim just to support our friend HBB. My usual daily driver IEM’s are CFA Solaris 2020, Empire Ears Legend-X, 64Audio U12T. Ive spent maybe a total of only 10 minutes with the Mele’s so far (driving over BT from Tidal on iPhone with Shanling UP4 in dual dac mode). Absolutely incredible performance for a $50 set of IEM’s. They sound like $1000 to me. Just my honest opinion. If you like bass, sound stage, clarity, and a fun / enjoyment focused tuning, I really don’t think you can go wrong with the Mele’s especially at $50.
Made me listen to my playlist for hours. Typically I am not a person that sit down for an hour to listen to music unless I am working. This set is tuned for long term listening. Vocals and instruments sound great on it. Sub-bass rumbles and just enough without being overwhelming. (I personally prefer a bit more sub-bass). Upper Treble is alright. Not the most detailed set but it is enough for relaxed listening. Soundstage is decent but instruments separation and layering is great If you listen to HipHop, K-pop,J-pop and Metal, Rock, this set is for you. For the price, this set really outperformed itself.
PROs: price/quality, tuning, fun
CONs: bassy, dark/warm, resolution
I am a budget person as I am currently a student, I have kbear ks1, blon 03, kz dq6, kz zsn pro and sony xb75. Out of all of these mele sounds the best. Ks1 had more bass but lacked in vocals a lot. This is the best overall sound signature you can get for 50, i guess. Highly suggest trying it out and paired with a btr5 it becomes the best goto iem to sleep in or edc.
... so I do own exclusively IEM single driver from Graphene, Dynamic silicon coated, multiple Single magnetic, Planar ...
Sources : JRiver + Topping Desk stack / Hiby R3 - Files Specs : 1 bit perfect to 16/24 bit depth - Format : Flac/ Wav / DSD 128/256 so Bite rate in consequence.
I did let myself go for the Tripowin HBB Mele for the Driver, the Aluminum casing, the large nozzle and the 4 cores pure copper cable (don't like Silver ones) that's it.
What I didn't suspected was a large carrying case at last. Good point ! I don't have to pend 10$ for a Linsoul hard case round one :)
Musically I go for electronic and all sub genre so from early GusGus on 4AD Label, Chemical Brothers ect.
The Mele hits it swiftly in the Bass while the Sub Bass needs no EQ, Mids are holding. That was what I looking for.
Ex Gusgus - Very Important People
As for the upper part of the Graph I had to switch to Funk / Nu Funk / Acid Lounge lib. and defectively the sound stage is very good not really deep tho. No harshness or fatigue in anyway .
Ex : Skeewiff Space Jam (Feat. The Brand New Heavies).
Conclusion : I will pend a few more $ in a while for a better copper balanced cable, the set is worth it.
Let's be honest some IEMs have magic and some do not. Many do nothing wrong to my ears, but I will go to IEMs that make me want to listen to music. The Tripowin x HBB Mele makes me want to listen to music. Magic. I listen to music mainly with vocals: Rock, Hip Hop, Electronic, Metal, Punk, Reggae. Everything sounds right and it also has that special sauce. Something unique. Magic.
It is really a pretty set of IEM, great tuning. Everything is just nice, very relax to listen to and I like it very much. The IEM is very light and comfortable when It's in my ear. Even if it is being sold with a higher price, it's definitely worth it!
I was a bit skeptical at first, but bought one anyways after I saw how it was tuned. The fit is perfect and with the AZLA tips I forget that they are even in my ears. I swapped the wires to the FIIO 2 pin to 2.5mm to work with my stuff. I use the Sony Xperia with my the EQ & Dolby and love the sound I get. Reggea, Dancehall, EDM, HipHop, old school bass, ETC, it all plays well and no fatigue. NO ear fatigue equals properly tuned. Response well to EQ equals no limit in dynamics. Well that is how I grade my stuff. Shove some power into these drivers and your eardrums start to tickle and the driver doesn't complain. This easily surpasses other single driver IEM's in the 200 dollar range. Blon 03 are great...... These are Mo" better.
