UM Universal MEST MKII
Well I've tried a lot of pairs of IEMs around this price and these are by far the best I've heard. I find they do not lack in one area.
Usually there are compromises to be made even at this price but everything is how I would like to hear it. Bass is spectacular with depth and detail but never too much. Mids are great especially for female and male rock vocals. The highs are full of nano details I don't hear on other pairs even knowing that they are there now.
The bone conduction certainly adds something that I have not heard on other pairs. The imaging and staging is surreal at times and can make well recorded tracks seem like a personal concert.
Trying the cable they come with on other pairs I own shows an instant improvement. It's a great cable that I may end up buying another one of and a great first impression of PW Audio cables.
Fit is great as it needs to be for the bone conduction to work effectively. My one complaint is that I feel after time the holes to plug cables into will get loose if removing the cable often. This is why I want to get another of the cables as I want to use it on everything else but don't want to keep taking it off the Mest Mk2.
I like to wait a while to write a review as my thoughts can change a lot over a couple of months. I find that the electrostat drivers used in the Mest Mk2 take a few hundred hours to reach their best & I heard imrovements in the sound up to around 250 hours.
I bought these back in April and the service from Musicteck was first class. When I got the shipping notice I thought that is quick when I saw the delivery date and they were with me in the UK even sooner.
The Mest Mk2 is my favorite iem I have ever had the pleasure of hearing. It literally checks every box! The 1st things I noticed when I heard them was how clear and upfront the vocals are and how dynamic the sound was. Absolutely nothing is lacking. Usually with iem's there is one or two things it does great but lacks in one category but not with the Mk2. The Mk2 is unbelievable with rock music especially but it handles every genre beautifully. The fit is amazing too. They were actually smaller than what I anticipated which makes the fit that much better. The supplied xelastec tips work great with the Mk2. I also found the Azla Sedna earfit light short works great too. You can order them off of Amazon. Overall I am 110% satisfied with the Mest Mk2. I highly suggest buying it.
As the title suggests this set is "The End" Nothing compares to Mest MK2 in any price range, I am finally done with hobby, all I have left to do now is to enjoy music.
This pair of iem wears comfortable, and I don’t feel much canal pressure during listening. It has a good DD bass rumble, and relaxing listen overall
Absolutely love this IEM- it’s got great technical prowess while keeping strong musicality and engagement. It’s incredibly engaging and pairs will with the dx300. Something to note is that this IEM can get a little shouty if you listen to a lot of vocals and at high volume (with the dx300, anyway)- tip swapping helps alleviate this (using final tips) as well as the AMP 12. The provided cable is also luxe as hell.
