        The silver case has a solid nice luxury feel, definitely one step above the competitors, which I find extremely useful when travelling or simply storing the IEMs when they are not in use. The tip selection is decent especially the comply tip inclusion. The stock cables is definitely worth upgrading to a higher end after market cable.

        Construction/Fit

        The Unique Melody Mentor has a somewhat strange design shell with a triangular acrylic Shell with non recessed two pin sockets.

        Given this is a 2013 IEM we can agree the design is a little outdated and basic this days, Unique Melody have had two revision on these: V2 with Shell and Cable revision and V3 which seems a completely new earphone.

        Despite the strange form factor, the Unique Melody is the most comfortable multi driver (6 + drivers) that i tried and i could wear it for hours without any discomfort.
