Unique Melody Mentor V3+ IEM
Twelve balanced armatures per monitor
Unique Melody is a company best known for their mid-tier and hi-fi IEMs. But since their founding in 2007, they’ve developed products and filed patents in the Bluetooth, planar magnetic, piezoelectric, and bone conduction driver markets.
The Mentor V3+ is an IEM that features twelve balanced armatures. Its carbon fiber finish and corrosion-resistant titanium/gold tubing system makes it a resilient piece of equipment that should last more than a lifetime. It’s a great option for audiophiles for whom sound quality is of the utmost importance.
Balanced armatures for extreme detail and clarity
The Mentor V3+ features twelve balanced armatures per monitor. Unlike traditional IEMs that use a single dynamic driver, balanced armatures are smaller, lighter, and provide greater output for less power. Inside each balanced armature, a small reed is balanced between two magnets (hence the “balanced” in balanced armature). The magnets vibrate the reed, and the reed’s motion is transferred to a diaphragm.
By allocating different frequency ranges to different balanced armatures, the Mentor V3+ is capable of producing a more detailed and clarified response. Think of it like this. You give a muralist a single hour to paint a mural on a large wall. They may be able to paint the whole thing, but the finished product won’t be very detailed. Now imagine you give that same task to twelve muralists. By splitting up the job, they can deliver a far more detailed finished product.
Because the eartips of IEMs fill up your ear canal, they’re naturally isolating. They’re not as isolating as noise-cancelling IEMs or headphones, but much more so than open backs. They’re a great choice for commuting, traveling, and other scenarios in which privacy is important.
