I now finally understand the hype and cult following for the Mest for almost 2 years now.
The sound quality most certainly justifies $1500 IMHO. With a 1/3 of the price discounted, it was an absolute no-brainer for me.
It is now my daily driver and loving every minute of it. After multiple days of tip rolling, the comply foam tips in L size worked best for me to allow the BC driver work better with a tight seal, while smoothing out the treble with more pronounced bass.
I bought these used, but it's in immaculate condition with no signs of wear and tear at all, while the box came shrink wrapped!
Top Notch Service from Andrew - Very quick responses. Very understanding. Very Fast Shipping (Received in 2 days after I put in the order).
Highly recommend Musicteck to anybody looking to buy high end audio gear.
If there were 6 stars, I would definitely give them the full 6 stars for this purchase. I will be a willing returning customer for the foreseeable future and have already started spreading the word among my friends. =)
