Here is a detailed comparison between the two in-ears.

The MEE Audio M6 Pro have an impressive design. With great tonal accuracy, they also offer a super low frequency responce. "
S500I'S HIGH-QUALITY AND SOPHISTICATED RHA DESIGN OR M6 PRO'S DETACHABLE CABLES?
MEE Audio is very proud of the M6 Pro, and has positioned as the 'musicians in-ear monitor'. Do these in-ears stay true to this tag? let's find out.
The brand has gone all-out to ensure that these IEM's look unique and difference from out counterparts. The ear-buds feature a well-built translucent housing. The clear casing is sure to draw eyeballs and make inquisitive creature take a peek. To dive in deeper, the transparent sturdy plastic material holds your circuit in, this means that you can see your drivers meticulously at work. MEE Audio has gone so far as to let you take a peek into the circuit of the microphone and remote. How cool is that?
Perhaps the best feature of the M6 Pro are the detachable cables. The package come include with two cable. One being the standard cable with a mic and remote, while the other being a standard cable without controls. The absolute advantage of this function is that you can replace the damaged part, without having to throw your earphones away.
Most importantly, the M6 Pro is sweat resistant, baring moisture from causing your earphones from getting damaged. If does not blow your mind, we are not sure what will.
When it comes MEE Audio's warranty, the brand offers a basic One-year warranty.
The RHA S500i comes in a heavy duty metal construction and we did expect these to be heavy on the ear canal. However, you will be surprised that the aluminium body has no influence on the weight of these earphones. It has an ultra-lightweight structure and can you can jam with for hours, without feeling strain or fatigue. The fit is excellent and it truly as if RHA has scanned your ear canals to design an earphone that just slides in.
Perhaps the best part of the RHA S500i is that it comes packed with various pairs of ear tips further aids in achieving a perfect fit and good noise isolation. The in-line three-button mic and remote lets you answer calls and control your music volume. You might want to consider its non-mic version, the RHA-S500 if you do not need a mic and remote.
ULTRA-LIGHTWEIGHT STRUCTURE VS AN OVER THE EAR DESIGN ?
The MEE Audio M6 Pro comes with a size and shape that is very different. Although true with most earphones, the M6 Pro's audio output is particularly largely dependent on right fit. And it will not be wrong to say that getting a perfect fit with the M6 Pro is quite a task.
The monitors have to be worn in an over-the-ear fashion, and this is a process. However, after you have worn these, they stay put. They bend over your ears for a more secure fit. Moreover, they do endure accidental tugs of the wire.
MEE Audio has ensured has that yu further enjoy a better fit, and the package comes included with 7 pairs of extra ear tips.
The mic and remote lets you answer calls and control other functions. Since the M6 Pro is an on-stage monitor, it also packs with it an extra 6.6mm adaptor letting you connect to other music output devices.
The IEM's offer great noise isolation and there effectively attenuates external sound.
BEST IN CASUAL LISTENING VS FLAT AUDIO RESPONSE?
Siince the MEE Audio M6 Pro is a studio monitor, it is expected to have a more balanced audio. These in-ears have an edgy sound. It presents your audio with quirk and is fast moving. If you like your music with big bass and can not lie about the same, then the earphones will not really disappoint you.
The bass is tight and solid, and the earphones do not shy away from throwing little sheen in here and there. The mids and highs are well combined and do present a balanced audio experience for people who have a leaner taste.
We did find that the M6 Pro does fall sometimes, making pounding tonnes shrill at high volumes. The vocals are clear and crisp and shines through prominently.
Nonetheless, the audio quality you achieve at this price-point is superb, and is great at entertaining.
RHA S500 is known for its design and the vast range of accessories that it comes along with, makes these a true winner. The 3-year warranty is the cherry on the cake.
