UM Universal mini MEST Open Air Balanced Armature Drivers X Bone Conduction Driver HIFI IEMs
Bone Conduction Sonic Engine
Mini MEST succeed the bone conduction technology in the original MEST to embellish the mid and vocal performance.
Unlike the traditional tuning approach, bone conduction technology is able to transfer certain sound frequencies directly to your inner ears through the bones of the skull, processed by the inner shell vibration. The sonic path like this: Sonic signal—Bone conduction vibrator—bones of the skull—cochlea-- auditory nerve.
Knowles Custom-made Open-air Balanced Armature Drivers
Mini MEST applied the custom-made open-air balanced armature drivers that are made by Knowles. These BA drivers have widely open front cavities which allow them to deliver sound without inner tunnel. The sound signature of open-air BA drivers is similar to dynamic drivers. It sounds more natural and forgiving than traditional BA drivers.
High precision DLP shell printing: We applied dark blue resin shells on Mini MEST which make Mini MEST aesthetically beautiful and practically comfortable.
Two color handmade carbon fiber faceplate: We used the classic carbon fiber faceplates on Mini MEST that were used on our flagships Mason V3+, Mentor V3+ and the original MEST.

I am not an audiophile, I don’r follow the analysis of all the frequencies. However, I am hearing things that o had not heard using other items and the bass is so good, full, tight but does not overpower the mids and highs. It’s all there and they have a nice sound stage layered and broad. Just a very comfortable and enjoyable listening experience.
More relaxed, musical presentation than the MEST. The open back BA drivers provide a bass and sub-bass with incredible slam and depth; sound 'dynamic driver' like. Great air and layering with a slightly smaller soundstage than the MEST, yet it remains amazing! High, tall and wide. More forgiving dynamics and tonality than MEST, and sound signature is neutral and 'flatish'...Tasteful, sophisticated tuning; highs are incredible, detailed and yet smooth and polished. Perfect coherency! Easily sounds better than IEMs costing twice as much. Stock cable is very decent! Comfortable fit. Whatever Unique Melody is doing in their labs, don't stop!
