BTW, did you buy the Mentors based on reviews, or were you able to audition them prior to purchase?
Nice. I bought based on reviews. I actually wanted to try the 1+2, but wasn't exactly on board with the snobbery in the forums or the sales approach. I figured if you spend a premium on a product you should get premium service. It is a far cry in today's world. Why can't people be more helpful and considerate? Isn't that the story. Back to the topic at hand, I bought based on reviews and some information from private messages I've sent back and forth between members in this post. I've got a few of the more popular (universal) IEMs at the moment...JH Roxanne, Shure 846, ASG2...and soon the Mentor. The Mentor isn't really one of the IEMs that gets alot of mention on the forums here, but that is ok. I hear decent things about the UM sound and wanted to try one of their newest offerings. It's still quite a wait, even for a pair of universal. It's been about 6 weeks.
I also see from your profile that you listen to similar types of music.
