Unique Melody Mentor debut in Tokyo e-earphone festival - Page 46

post #676 of 685
Just looked on re-shelling my universals to customs. It will not cost you more than $300 (exluding going to the doctor for impressions)

the CIEM there is being made with PC 3D, not the old school, the fit is so epic and too comfortable, technology <3 the sound from the CIEM is better too due the isolation difference.

and the tips issues will be gone as well.

 

 

oh the silver cable make the mentor rocks, someone did recommend the Oslo II cable for me, also a Mentor user here is selling his DHC or what ever was the brand, cable , its silver occ type 4 litz, 250$ i say avoid the waiting time and get it, i bought a silver cable too, but from toxic cables.

 

check the cables page, i saw it today, and you can ask him about the sound he got a mentor as i said, his DP is the one with solid snake from Metal Gear solid 4

I wouldn't be surprised if UM are preparing a 12 driver competitor to the Roxanne. They already have a template in the Maestro and the Legacy. The Mentors are amazing, but they haven't gained enough traction in the CIEM world. At least not to the levels the Miracle reached.

I did yes. They almost fit perfectly. One ear was a bit loose so I sent them back for a refit. Can confirm the custom version sounds even better. I definitely encourage going that route

Finally had time to go test the Merlin and Mentor. I think I will go with the Merlin in the end.. The bass of the Merlin swayed me over. Not to say Mentor has no bass but just different type. And also going the custom route as advised by the sales person. :bigsmile_face: Hope going custom will make it sound even better since this is my first custom.

The custom version might sound a little better than the universal fit, but it's the comfort that will amaze you. I can listen for over an hour on my Mentors and not feel at all uncomfortable.

 

Anyway, congrats on your first custom purchase. It's a good choice, too. :smile:

the comfort from UM shells are way better than the 1st generation due them using 3D technology, fit on spot, i mean Technology does it 100% compared to the old school way were they had to trim it, but they can't undo mistakes in real life compared with PC programs

the power ot CTRL + Z !!!! lol.

Do you have a link which describes the 3D printing UM uses for their recent CIEMs? I'm interested to know more. Thanks. :smile:
