Unfinished Brilliance!

Posted

Pros: Suburb Mid-range refinement, Sound-Stage, Remarkable treble

Cons: Two faced, Maybe uncomfortable, mid bass?

Unfinished brilliance   Okay, well let me just start off by saying I'm big fan of Unique Melody, it was actually the UM Miracle that I got a chance to demo which helped me understand how great an earphone can actually sound. This coming from a pair of Skullcandy's (forgive me Head fi) but we all started somewhere.    Getting back to the topic at hand I'm going to typically break down each segment into sections. Untypical, I will be describing the sound in one chapter instead of strictly categorising each element of sound. To make things a little easier to read I will highlight keywords such as midrange, bass, soundstage and treble etc. There is a reason I'm explaining...

Pros: Treble detail, general clarity, good soundstaging, bass texture

Cons: Lacking in accessories, minor issues with finishing

I purchased my Mentors in the first half of September 2014, and actually received them by the end of the same month.

Pros: mids amount and resolution, sub-bass (especially with EQ), Cable (yes, with a C), comfort and fit, EQability for the lows. Soundstage. coherent

Cons: some build and finish qualms,highs tuning to some 'enhanced/refined' feel, no huge foam tips, maybe the default mid-bass quantity,$$$$,maybe isolation

I've had Mentor for nearly a month before selling it and JH16fp (first deciding to sell Mentor, then putting it on hold, then selling JH, then finally selling Mentor) and thought I'd share my experience(s) with the Mentor with you. (more or less a summary of the previous impressions, invalidating the initial ones) Many photos can be found here: primary reference point for the pics about build. There are pics of it here - small one solid-ish black with UM logo side by side with other IEMs Specs, buying, FR, etc: Fr chart and buy them from Stephen Guo here . Like others - I can indeed recommend his services. (but think he can push UMLab on QC a bit more ) For universals,...
