Great review. I get what you're saying about technicalities. Sometimes you can marvel at retrieval, soundstage, imaging etc at the same time lose the emotional connection. Sometimes it's the little things. Very enjoyable review 👌

Hi mate, long time since we had contact. I hope you’re going well. Thanks for your comment. Yep, sometimes you just feel connected to your music in a way that no graph, technical sheet or drivers structure can explain.

Thoroughly enjoyed reading this review and I loved what you wrote about putting, at least occasionally, the technical details aside and just focus on the raw connection to the music. That said, your review did stir my my appetite for Oriveti o400, as the only IEMs I currently have are wireless BOSE ones that accompany me for my runs.

@Kormister: thanks for your comment my dear friend. I think it would be a good idea to treat yourself with those. We share similar musical taste. You call pull the trigger with confidence.

Lovely read mate. I'm also going through my honeymoon phase with the MEST and as I was reading the comparison section I could almost see the future haha

@kmmbd : Thanks mate for your comment. Mest MKII are amazing IEMs and I see a big portion of current owners being set for a long time. You will see/hear for yourself if they do it or not. Enjoy your time with them. I encourage you to discover the O400 if you can, too.

@Scuba Devils : Thank you too amigo! Yes, great sound out of the pretty inexpensive O400. I don’t know how much you are satisfied with your Trailli (I bet you love them), but yes, why not giving the O400 a try as they are true allrounder in my book.

Technical proficiency cannot be taken in default, but I kind of lost connection with my music.
This is my experience with most “technical” sets as well.

@abheybir : Thanks, I am glad my impressions woke up your interest about the 0400 😊 extra cash available? The OV800 can be interesting too. Amethyst vs Emeralds.

@H T T : Complex drivers structures never really have done it for me so far. BA-only or single DD, this is my dope.

@dsrk : Thanks! I genuinely have enjoyed the Mest MKII as an example of what’s possible today in terms of sound reproduction in the IEM’s world. Kudos to UM for this magistral effort. At the end of the day, it’s all about which IEMs stay in the drawer and the ones you keep taking out for your listening sessions 😉

@F700: Yes that's what matters most. Which gear pleases you and stays with you the most irrespective of the price and technical abilities, that's what we prefer at the end of the day to enjoy our favorite music.

@F700 Mest Mk 11 is a total work of art.
