Unique Melody Mentor V1$1449
- Most Comfortable Multidriver I have tried so far

- Can be a little bright with some sources
- Soundstage Depth could be a little better
As part of a series of revisiting lost treasures and earphones from the past few years that still hold a dear place in the earphonia.com teams hearts, I will start with revisiting the 10 drivers ‘Unique Melody Mentor’ V1 earphone.
- Frequency Response: 20Hz – 20Khz
- Impedance: 20Ω
- Sensititvity: 112dB
- Release Price USD $1449
Digital Audio Players:
- Lotto Paw Gold
- Sony WM1Z
- Pw Audio No. 5

The packaging of the Mentor includes:
- 4 pair silicon tips
- 3 pairs comply tips
- IEM solid metal storage case
- Cleaning cloth
- Cleaning tool
- Earline adaptor
- 6.35 Adaptor
- 2 Pin standard IEM cable
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.
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Given this is a 2013 IEM we can agree the design is a little outdated and basic this days, Unique Melody have had two revision on these: V2 with Shell and Cable revision and V3 which seems a completely new earphone.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.
