I'm still confused. I don't see anywhere that says "Flagship". Just "new 12-driver". Not to mention that photo was taken from Mixwave's page which was where it was first announced.

"New 12 drivers flagship custom in-ear monitors" in the description section? confused_face.gif is that description reliable?

Actually no & yes. No it's not reliable cos the original announcement doesn't day flagship. It looks like iconosquare copied the picture and added the "flagship" themselves. I don't know who iconosquare is but doesn't look like they're reliable.

As for the "yes" it turns out Mixwave won't bring the Mentors into Japan so at least in Japan, the Maestro will implicitly be the flagship despite not explicitly stated.

What does it mean for the rest of the world? They won't (officially) get Maestro - it's a Japan-only release & it is Kenichi's/Mixwave's special edition. But I'm guessing in this day and age of grey market I'm sure some you bright sparks will find ways to get Japan exclusives anyway.

Fair enough. Thank you for the clarification.

Japan only exclusive? That's a disappointment. frown.gif

How could it be a replacement if the Mentors were never brought in/distributed in Japan?

i mean as a solution XD since they didn't bring it there to begin with :P  guess i made you confused lol. 

why didn't they bring the Mentor to begin with? as far as i know a lot of Japs did pre order it, should been a success over there :/

I think it's a very common practice in Japan. Most of the 'Made in Japan' goods you find in Japan cannot be found elsewhere in the world, well that's changing these days but the mindset is pretty much the same. Mixwave is just trying to bring something exclusive to the Japanese community.

Sadly I never got a chance to demo the Maverick. It's a Japan-only exclusive as far as I know. All I have info about it is that it's 5-driver. I put my Fujiya report in my sig BTW so a pix of the Maestro there. Queue was long so I didn't wanna waste time lining up.

Hi guys, I'm new here and I'm planning to buy a mentor.

 

Does anyone know the image used in this one? and can some suggest a good design.

My suggestion: Hit the contact button on UM's website and ask Stephen to be sure.
