Thank You for posting this. I am receiving Maestro SE today, so will let ya know what I think. Fingers crossed :slight_smile: I saw HBB rated it #1, but Timmy gizaudio says bass canon w less vocal prowess, so I really hope I am gonna like it.

Glad to see the MSE is tricking over to these parts as well.

They did something special for my MSE that was supposed to be shipped out this week, but it failed QC inspection, so it looks like I’ll get that and my Mini in early February after Chinese New Year.

Since I’m a more bass-inclined person, I think it will be right up my alley. My taste lines up more with HBB versus Timmy in general.

I look forward to seeing your review!

I’m not sure if it’s intentional, but under the “Source & Drivability” heading, the paragraph mentions the IE600.

Did you mean to reply to me on the IE200 page LOL

No, I clicked the link to Precog’s review of the Maestro Mini and it mentioned the IE600.

Same here, as a drummer, I am hoping it has great drums and bass for possibly using on live gigs, but even if not, maybe I will prefer the strong low end.
They said mine would be aprox 10 day turn around but it took a month. He apologized and added the silver cord upgrade for free. I think I saw a post saying that was already added free as a perk. Aware of seeing that on a review? Also they use DHL and it said 5 days, but if it does arrive today was only 3.
May I ask what they did special on yours that you mentioned?

Initial impression is sound stage seems slightly slightly wider than u12t (which is already amazing) and separation of instruments/placement incredible. I am marveling at the various instruments and placement.

added note- I played Paul Simons music and was so exquisite that hrs later I was still at it. ‘Spectacular’ comes to mind as the description. As a drummer, I almost always want the bass as a solid foundation under my drumming and that is there perfectly. The separation of instruments was the best I have experienced. Even the sound stage at times felt as tho the instruments hard left and right were outside the iem farther to the right and left. Hope this helps a bit and Id love to see a review from you experts :slight_smile:
