Many are curious about how the Mentor came about, and here's our story. After the Miracle has been a successful hit, customers wanted something better. We tried the active crossover set-up, but many do not like the idea of bringing a dedicated box with them. Therefore, we had to work within the minute space of those acrylic shells.

Some asked for more bass, so we threw in two more balanced armatures for low. Others desire thicker vocal and smoother highs, so we tossed in two more drivers in the mid to high region. Initially, it didn't work out quite well since having good sound is not as simple as that. Therefore, we had to start from scratch, thinking about different drivers to use for the 10 driver 4 way crossover configuration. We used something totally different for low drivers, and yes, four of them. For those vocal fans, we order pricey drivers that we have never used before for the mid frequency due to their heavy price tag. The manufacture claimed that particular driver performs two times better than other ones, and therefore, charging us twice as expensive. Without contemplating on the cost, our lead engineering was putting two of those premium drivers per earpiece!

There were definitely times of frustration and despair, but the support and love from UM fans kept us going. After sleepless nights, we had it. Ten BA drivers all squeezed in those tiny earpieces just for the heavenly experience. It was not easy, but as long as you guys can better enjoy your tunes with the Mentor, we are contented.  

Note: For new Unique Melody custom earphones, they can be re-shelled but not upgraded.
