      Refurbished unit in excellent condition repackaged with original accessories or accessories from compatible models and brands. All refurbished products are certified by authorized technicians and are supplied with a 90-day manufacturer warranty.

      A guiding light in the audio world, the brilliance of the Shanling ME500 Platinum Edition earphones emits a splendour that equals its stellar sound performance. Shanling have refreshed the acclaimed ME500 earphones with a stunning platinum coating and updated a few technical aspects to bring the ME500 Platinum Edition even closer to perfection. 

      The original ME500's brass housing was coated with tempered glass to defend it from blemishes and damage. Shanling have upgraded the exterior of the ME500 Platinum Edition with a luxurious platinum-plating that glistens with splendour while providing a strong protective casing for the rigours of everyday life. Shanling ME500 Platinum Edition has also been awarded the sought after Hi-Res certification by the Japanese Audio Association with a frequency response that extends to 40kHz. 

      For a tailored personal listening experience the ME500 Platinum Edition includes five different eartips that alter the sound performance. Choose from balanced, bass enhanced, vocal-centric and soundstage silicone eartips to change the frequency response as desired. Switching the material of the ear guides from PU (polyurethane) to PE (polyethene) also achieves a softer and more skin-friendly feel.

      Simply brilliant.

      Shanling ME500 Platinum Edition


      Precious Metal Housing
      As with the standard ME500 the housing of the Platinum Edition is made from high-density brass carefully cut from a single block and coated in noble platinum. With the highly polished finish of this precious metal, the ME500 Platinum Edition display more strength and resistance to corrosion with a visually striking lustrous sheen.

      Upgraded MMCX Connectors
      With thicker gold plating, the MMCX connectors have been redesigned to be more substantial and robust, improving connection stability and providing a longer lifespan. As a result, the plug not only survives more plug-in operations but also have an even better, firmer fit.

      Hybrid Driver Design
      Armed with a powerful customised dynamic driver and two high-performance balanced armature drivers the ME500 Platinum Edition will breath new life into your personal listening. The custom-tuned dynamic driver is equipped with an OFC voice coil for tight low-frequency performance, while the dual BA driver delivers a balanced and clear high-to mid response.

      Premium Silver-Plated Cable
      Instead of the copper cable with silver coating and pure copper cable, the Platinum Edition contains all eight conductors with silver-coated OFC copper cables. In addition, the stranding of the cable has been significantly refined, which again significantly reduces the susceptibility to oxidation.
