    Unique Melody Martian — $465
    Ahem. It's seldom pleasant to eat one's words... but this is hardly the first time, nor will it be the last. Since burning in the ZX-2 with the Andromeda, I've grown enamored of that combination to the extent that I'm just not listening to this otherwise marvelous IEM anymore. And someone should be!

    Cosmetically, the Martian is in great shape. I'm its original owner and, until recently, have used it routinely. Nonetheless, it lacks any observable signs of wear. UM know how to build quality — no paint rubbing off here. The cable is in the same unblemished condition as the earpieces.

    The Martian will be shipped in its original box, alongside its full suite of accessories. As detailed on CYMBACAVUM:
    The nozzles will accept Comply T-500, which I used more often than not. Preferred Comply comfort over that of the stiffer foam which UM utilizes in their tips. Also, if desired, I can throw in a Pelican 1010 case. It's rather more convenient for transportable storage than the aluminum pillbox.

    I would prefer to sell this IEM to a buyer within the USA. That said, I'm open to the prospect of an international sale, so if you live outside the USA feel free to drop me a line. I'll see what I can do to accommodate you. Price includes the cost of non-international shipping. Gift via PayPal or add fee, please.

    Pics available on request. And feel free to PM me for more information about the Martian's performance and/or condition. I'll be happy to provide it as best I can. I'd encourage any prospective buyer to reference @shotgunshane's wonderfully on-point review, as its conclusions virtually mirror my own.

    Friends will be given preference!

    Ordinary-shaped-ears-having traitor! Good luck with the sale, they are lovely-sounding things.

    Ha ha, believe me, embarrassment was a contributing factor in my delaying selling this. :oops: That, and I genuinely like it a great deal. Phenomenal coherency for a hybrid, and perhaps the most accurate lows that I've heard from any IEM or headphone. The Andro has a bump to its mid bass that the Martian lacks, arguably for the better. And the dual-dynamic drivers sport a more natural decay.

    Additionally, the Martian sounds consistently "itself" from every device I've used it from. No wonky impedance/FR interactions to speak of.
