The Mentor V3 at $1599 is a steal. I like it better than the Mason V3, and picked one up earlier this year. It...is...stellar...

how bout the UM Universal 3DD-Ti i do not see any info about it

how would miracle compare to mason
In terms of signature, whats most obvious is that the Mason has a sweeter and slightly more forward midrange. Most people really enjoy the tonality and engaging nature if the Mason's midrange. Some do find it a bit too forward for their preference, but I've yet to have someone say to me that its to a fault. Of the lineup, the Mason is easily my favorite in terms of tonality, timbre, and tuning. That makes sense, of course, since I was one of the few voices that were heard in tuning the unit.

The Miracle, on the other hand, was a piece that was incredibly well received during the years of its inception as a reference piece. The classic "Jack of all trades, master of none." the biggest criticism was that the midrange was just a bit too bland. Thus, with the Miracle V2, that was addressed while maintaining the Miracle V2 identity and DNA as a reference piece. The unit's core concept has been around for a while now - since 2011 or so i believe. But with updates and improvements to the unit, it's certainly kept up with the shifting market and maintains the spot as one of the best value props within our lineup. Does it compete with the Mason technically, absolutely not. The Mason is a cumulation of 10 years of experience and experimenting. The Mason is honestly quite a few leagues above the Miracle. As it should be.

The 3DD concept was always meant to be more of a head turner. Those who gravitate towards its signature will really fall for it, while it'll likely make quite a few enemies along the way as well. Its likely one of the bassiest products we've ever created, but we do try to maintain the core values of clarity and tonal correctness in mind and not let the signature deviate too far from a faithful reproduction of sound. Rwviews for the unit was unfortunately kind of slow getting out (You can blametme forfthat one...) but I think Marcus sums it up nicely. Definitely check it out if you have already!

And, of course, feel free to reach out if you have any other questions. I'm on Head-Fi too much anyways... =P

Hey everyone! For those that fell victim to food coma and didn't get their black Friday shopping done, MusicTeck's sale will continue until the end of today.

Any customization option will be available, so feel free to let us know if there's a look that you're looking for in particular!

Hope everyone celebrating Thanksgiving had a great and safe weekend with family :beerchug:

Hi everyone. I'd like to introduce everyone to the two newest members of the Unique Melody Family - The Maven and the Mirage!

Our semi-open tuning unit gives us the power to tune the Maven to a sharp degree of precision, allowing for a more natural and correct tonality.

Don’t be fooled by the “mere” 3 drivers that are core to the Mirage’s design. Utilizing a unique customized open driver for its mid range, the Mirage offers formidable performance despite its smaller stature.

With these latest releases, you can expect the best that Unique Melody has to offer when it comes to a beautiful, yet pragmatic design.

If they sound anywhere near as good as they look, you've got a pair of winners on your hands here! :D
Outstanding design, and I'm intrigued about the sound too :)

Never heard anything from UM, but these look interesting.

Cool to see more happening with "open" BA drivers.

Thanks for the support! We'll go into details regarding the special collaboration drivers, with Knowles in particular, pretty soon, as the open and semi-open drivers actually do vastly different things.

I'm just gonna put 2 and 2 together, considering MusicTeck and Unique Melody are both among the Exhibitors in the upcoming CanJam NYC'19 :wink: Hopefully will hear it at the show!
