Just sent my impressions to China today. Let's see when they will turn up at UM Lab's door.

We are now offering titanium plating embedded into the faceplate as a form of artwork for only $30 extra. 

In my opinion, black words/patterns on top of the faceplate looks the best, but this customer wanted gold~



Does this mean that if i chose the titanium faceplate, I can choose custom artwork and the total cost is $30 extra? Or would that be $60 extra?

Ordered mine a week or so ago, with UM Malaysia and their recent promo. Now, the wait....

Got my impressions today.  What is the most reliable shipping method?  I'm seeing cost from UPS & Fedex around $90 from Ohio.  Does this seem about right?

Why not go with USPS Express Mail International? Those price quotes sound much too high compared to what USPS Express would run you.

Hi Miracle owners

 

So torn at the moment with the upcoming UMAus sale. That extra silver cable included is really pushing me over the edge

 

I've recently just traded my SM3 v1 for a set of CK100s yet to arrive in the mail

 

I really like the sound of the merlin, but the noise isolation is a deal breaker, which just leaves me with the miracle

 

However I do know the JH16's have pretty good bass and isolation. 

But the price is significantly higher! 

 

SM3's were really great once I got used to the neutral sound signature, but sometimes it can be too warm, and the details is lacking. 

 

This was made apparent when I put on the W3's and the CK100's when I tried them in Japan. Sub bass was pretty good, with the detail going quiet into the lows for the electronic music, but bass slam wasn't there, especially in the rock music, although the drums did sound natural

 

What improvements do the Miracles have over the SM3's? 

Is it more sparkly for the trebles? More or less warm? Is the bass on par or better than the SM3's?

 

I'm just afraid that if I go with the Miracles, I won't end up liking the neutral signature, and be wishing for the JH16's instead

 

I tend to listen to alternative rock, indie, pop, but since the bass slam isn't there with the sm3's I've shied away from electronic, house, and hard dance (although I still like this genre)

 

Does Miracle still have that bass slam? or would I find it lacking and not exciting?

 

I didn't like the W3's although they did have that punchy bass, as the mids were so veiled! couldn't stand it as the voice seemed to be veiled by that V frequency

 

I'll be using it primarily unamped with my Iphone4, but I do have the E7 amp and LOD

Cheers for any feedback!

 

James

Thanks for the tip.  I guess I didn't think of USPS for a China shipment.  It was 1/3 the cost of UPS or FedEx.  Hopefully they will be there by mid to end of the week.  Already, the suspense is killing me...

I should be receiving my Miracles within 2-3 weeks, maybe I'll post some thoughts here after listening to them. Weirdly enough, I'm not going crazy over the wait like I usually do, probably means that the HD800s are doing their job biggrin.gif

post #115 of 2875

There should be a pretty big influx of Miracle reviews coming out in the next month or so.  This thread should be moving along very soon.

post #116 of 2875

 

In case anyone is interested in getting a set nice and cheap. I've got a pair up for sale.

 

Check it out here

post #117 of 2875

hey guys, so i ordered my pair and shipped my impressions out about a month ago; how long does it typically take for a US customer to receive his?

 

i'm really impatient to hear them etysmile.gif

So are many others, mostly from the numerous promotions/group buys that have been been waiting for nearly two months. Individual purchases does seem to take the expected 4-6 weeks, as they do not have to wait for the promo cable that's included. You should read the last six pages or so of this thread to get an idea of what it's all about: http://www.head-fi.org/t/524282/review-unique-melody-miracle-6-driver-custom-iem/

Have you even tried contacting UM yet? You cross-posting the same post everywhere is a pretty bad look in my eyes... especially when you did not even post in one relevant thread (Merlins).

And I suppose you think I am somehow responsible for you getting yourself in trouble with the Staff here at Head-Fi? You did that all by yourself buddy. If you have not already I suggest you have a read of the posting guidelines or even the terms of service, maybe then you will see the error of your ways.

 

As far as being relevant... from what I remember of your now deleted posts you were inquiring about the wait time of other customers. As a fellow customer of Unique Melody I feel my opinion on wait times is just as relevant as any other. For what it is worth my wait time for a group buy was exactly 33 days from payment to delivery - not bad in my eyes when you take into account postage times from me to the office to the lab and back again!

 

Lastly, you think this is a UM issue and thus is it relevant to every individual Unique Melody product thread? I certainly do not see it that way. There is the group buy specific thread which is entirely relevant to your ranting - use it as you see fit, but do not try and pin your wayward behavior on me. 

 

This post is off-topic enough as it is. Do not expect me to continue this debate here.
