I listened to this several times now, and the melody doesn’t get boring for me—very mystifying. I’m really diggin it.
The lead synth you chose, in my opinion, is not the problem as I actually like how it sounds similar to a voice. It just becomes piercing to my ears around 1:35. I think the problem lies in how you mixed it. It’s way up front, and it has a lot of high-end which then causes the piece to lose some of its warmth. If you EQ'd it a bit, perhaps that could solve what others have been saying about it. My ears are enduring it because the melody is so good.
