On Twitter earlier today Unique Melody announced their entry into the universal headphone game with two new products, the dual driver 2X and triple driver 3X. They're both hybrid designs, so a single BA/dynamic configuration in the 2X and a dual BA with dynamic driver for the low end in the 3X. There's two colour options, either clear shells with red and blue faceplates or an all-black model.
Both models are available to order now from Unique Melody UK (I can't see them on the US/AU sites yet) for £199 and £249 respectively, with a £50 discount available for the next two weeks using the code UNIVERSAL50 at the checkout. No word on arrival dates yet, although having ordered the 3X I'm hoping they'll be ready to go soon! I'll be trying my hand at a review whenever they arrive.
Over the past few years, we have been inspired and humbled by the feedback and overwhelming support our customers have given us. We’ve collected all that feedback, and combined with years of experience building the best custom in-ear monitors around, launched the UM 2X and 3X – universal IEMs done differently!
Embarking into unchartered territory, the 2X and 3X is the result of rigorous testing and industrial design, utilising our in-house hybrid design technology along with cutting-edge 3D printing technology. The 2X features a 2-way design with 1 BA/1 Dynamic driver, while the 3X uses a 3-way design with 2 BA/1 Dynamic driver.
