My Goldilocks Set

I purchased my Mest MKII from Andrew on the 4-9-21 and forgot about writing a review...

Ok, to be honest, when I first received these I didn't like them and would have returned them if I could, but that would have been a big mistake, let me explain...
I was accustomed to earphones with very little sub-bass and mid-bass so these were warmer than I was used to but I started to quickly realise upon listening sessions that I have never been hearing music accurately on other sets as I was missing out on kick drums and bass guitars.

- Kick drums and bass guitars on the MKII have the perfect amount of energy and sound accurate.
Bass guitars are very easy to follow without overstepping other instruments which may be something to do with the bone conduction as they are definitely doing something different to other sets I have listened to.

- I am a vocal lover and I must say the vocals are just about perfect on this set, nicely balanced, clear and inline with everything else with great emotion. Again, I do believe the bone conduction is having a positive affect on them... Recessed they are definitely not, in fact on certain tracks I would even say that they may have a bit more energy than some people may like. They definitely have more vocal energy that the graphs show.

- Treble is perfectly clear, non-fatiguing and can deliver extra detail and micro detail that is missing on other sets.

- The Mest MKII are my goldilocks set with everything extremely well balanced, never too much, just perfect. Without a doubt, they are vocal and detail king for me till I hear better. (Interested in hearing the Odin and Anole VX)

Comparisons:
I recently purchased a used but mint Mest OG and a brand new Monarch MKII and these are a few thoughts against the Mest MKII.

- My Mest OG seems to have a hair more sub-bass compared the the Mest MKII but the bass on the MKII is tighter and cleaner. The Mest MKII seems to have a hair more mid-bass over the OG.
Vocals on the Mest OG seem to sit ever so slightly behind the bass and treble but are still excellent nonetheless.
Tambourines, shaking instruments and cymbals are ever so slightly more forward, clear and upfront on the Mest MKII.

- My Monarch MKII has more sub-bass and mid-bass compared to the Mest MKII but the bass is very loose in comparison to the Mest MKII. (I know reviewers have said that the Monarch MKII is light on mid-bass but definitely not on the set I own)
Vocals on the Monarch MKII are very good but I do feel that they are at times overshadowed with the warmer bass and mid-bass and not as clean as the Mest MKII. The Monarch MKII definitely has a thicker sound.
Tambourines, shaking instruments and cymbals are a good deal more forward, clear and upfront on the Mest MKII. The Monarch MKII just can't produce the level of details and micro detail that the Mest MKII can.

These are my thoughts on the sets and exactly how I hear them...

I am UK based and the service Andrew and Musicteck provided me was absolutely Outstanding, so a massive Thanks to them...

Fantastic

Given I don't have a history with IEMs, my previous pair being a 15? year old pair of Ultimate Ears SuperFi 3. These were a huge step up. The most notable thing was the immersion, it felt like I was in the middle of everything but not necessarily in a way where I would consider the soundstage small or claustrophobic. A very unique experience compared to what I was used to from open back headphones.

MEST, the BEST

The MEST MKII are by far the best IEMs in my collection. I parse their use because my other 5 pairs pale in comparison. All of those IEMS are priced btwn. $500 and $1500. One of those IEMs sells for exactly the same price as the MEST, I won't mention the brand, but the sound just doesn't have the amazing separation and detail of the MEST, not by a mile. I did a bit of tip rolling on the MEST, and the included Azla Xelastec (size M for me) hit the sweet spot. Only drawback, and it's slight - is the cable... a little primitive for my taste, bordering on stiff, especially the molded over ear loops That said, I'm still using it. I'm lazy. Lazy, and incredibly happy with MEST MKII.

fyi: Classical music is heavy in my rotation, so symphonic separation and instrument timbre is incredibly important to me:. The MEST delivers both sublimely.

Great purchase

This are very special iems they give me something my other iems don’t give me that holographic feeling in the sound. Fit is very good but I can fit almost every iem but with the mest I can listen for hours without hurting my ears. The unboxing was the best I had in my iem journey so far it was very luxurious.
Sound compared to monarch mk2.
They both sound great but when comparing them side by side, the mest mk2 always won except for focal oriented songs that was the only thing the mest mk2 lost to monarch mk2 for me. But both great iems can’t go wrong with either.
And now I would like to thank Andrew for his great service and quick responses very great man he knows what he is doing, can’t go wrong doing business with him he is very reliable. And reading from all the previous reviews I did not think twice doing business with him.
Thanks Andrew!

Great IEM and awesome costumer service.

At this point there is nothing new to say about Mest MK2, is excellent, fit fine and could be all you need for a long time.
Andrew at Musicteck also need a 5 stars review, but that is also known for everyone.
