Made some enquires re custom IEM's not too long ago here, and at the time had JH16 and Miracles on my radar, also Westones ES5's. Well Matt from UM Australia got in touch with me and we arranged to meet up.
He came around to my place Brought along The Merlin Demo as i have the IE8 , which have a simillar bassy sound and also bought around his own Miracles.
Firstly tried on Demo Merlins, straight out through my Sony S739F portable. with no enhacements eq etc dead flat.
Played Radiohead's Packt Like Sardines in tin box, boy my body was thumpin with the low bass.
Also some other tracks wich presented simmilar fun sounding.
Tried his Customs Miracle with my tips, with no real success, sounded like a cheap trasistor radio.
Then Matt worked out a way to apply my sony hybrid tips inside out on to his Miracles, I then inserted and all i can say is I was gob smacked to the point that ive never heard iems so crystal clear, Highs Mids Lows presented in a way they were so natural free from any colourization. Such a Balanced all round signature. There also was a kind of presence wich was Live - Like the kind when you are there with the band in front of you, and this was with tips turned inside out! all the time i was pressing flat with my hands against them over my ears. I can only imagine what the REAL customs are gonna be like. And not to forget about mentioning the workmanship on these guys is simply top notch.
I have definately made up my mind on what i will be ordering.
Seriously guys get a hold of a pair to demo your ears will thank you.
Personally now that i have heard them i dont think i will be able to sleep, i just want them so bad!!!!!!!!!!
I also want to thank Matt Wong for going to the trouble of coming out and blowing my mind with these amazing IEM's.
I just had to share this with the community.
