Will have to try these H3s with those UE900 tips later on but i can't say i completely agree with you there meng. These DN1Ks can more than hold their own, and i don't think these H3s blows them completely outta' the water in fact. For one thing the treble extension of those DN1Ks is some of the best i have heard to date, and bests that of the H3s more smooth yet extended treble.

 

My DN1Ks can more than hold me over until the prices of these H3s drops so then i can go in for the kill. :veryevil: Not trying to make excuses or anything but this is what i am hearing. These H3s are amazing but so are the DN1Ks so.....

Both of those guys expressions is how I feel at the moment...

 

maybe eric does too.

But see I didn't say the DN1000 isn't good. It's quite good. But I'll be the lone voice in saying it doesn't compete with the H3. I can live with that just being my opinion. It's an apples and oranges comparison, kind of like some want the Pistons to beat all the mid-tiers, but it just doesn't have the scope or reach. Dn-1000 and H3 aren't in the same league, but there is plenty room in the game for both. H3 competes with the ASG-2 and Cardas.

Okay so Im listening out of my o2 right now and something is wrong. It's completely hollow sounding like there is something wrong with the driver but oddly enough if I press the middle button on the remote, the sound fills in back to normal... Please advise!

^ Welp since we are at it, mo' HYPE didn't hurt nobody right??? :tongue:

 

Initial impressions of these Martin Logans was WOW!!! COLOR ME IMPRESSED!!!

 

What immediately jumped out at me was the lushness and sweetness of the mids and along with the crazy nice extension of the treble. For anyone that has heard/ read-up on the ATH ES700s you will know that I along with many ES700s owners praise their sweet forward and lush mids to no end. Welp not only is the mids of these Logans exactly as lush as that of the ES700s but its treble is just as lush as well. :blink: SWEET BABY JESUS the mids and treble of these are soooo nice that even that hyperbole is an under statement!!! Excuse me while I compose myself, what I mean by sweet is that these Logans will get your head bobbing (contemplating)/ feet tapping (working out) due to all the nuances and micro details they render. Therefore not only are they easy on the wallet due to their low price but is beneficial for the well being of your mind, body and soul. :tongue_smile: These Logan is akin to something like a flour sifter in which meticulous renders all the finest aspects of the music right down to the smallest micro details and presents them to you in a ever so refined fashion yet without being overly dry, dull, lifeless, boring, or analytical.

 

Also for anyone that has owned/ heard the Beyer DT-250 you will know what I am talking about. The DT-250s have a really clear, sweet, easy on the ears non fatiguing sound that is really engaging albeit hard as hell to drive due to the 250 ohm impedance. You can literally listen to those DT-250 all day long without listen fatigue and the same could be said about these Logans, but even more so because they not only sound great even on low volumes but is MUCH MUCH easier to drive as well. Therefore not only do they have that amazing mid range lushness/ sweetness as those ES700s but is sweet sounding across the entire spectrum. It bests the Beyer DT-250s not only because these Logans sound even more 3D, is faster, along with bucket loads of crazy high resolution micro details with amazing clarity but they sound more realistic in their musical rendition to boot. The instrument and micro rendering on these Logans is so realistic sounding that it is surreal and that is no over statement. Bar none their realism is the best I heard from ALL my headphones as well as iems to date, which even bests that of the VSonic GR07 BEs natural/ organic presentation, but the GR07 BE is still better textured overall.

 

 

So here's the rub, the bass. Bass quantity is pretty similar to the ES700s, whereas it is kinda "soft" hitting/ sounding in the ES700s, the bass of these Logans is snappy, tight, and quick. Therefore it MIGHT sound anemic/ thin as vlenbo posted but it is really not that bad. In fact hip hop sounds amazing with these despite the lack of quantity. Even the sub bass (yes they do have sub bass presence) of these Logans extends pretty deep, but instead of the visceral throaty deep type that is felt not heard, when done right by good audiophile basshead iems/ cans why of course, they are more of a hard snap sounding type, similar to someone snapping their fingers really loud. Therefore, what it lacks in quantity is made up for in quality and the best way to put it is this.....

                        Audiophile bass cans/iems. Boosted and roided up, muskals oh so sexcee, but for looks only. : P

What you stated is how I thought of the martins. They are similar to the es700s in lushness, but differentiates itself by being a bit more airier sounding.

 

The re700s tramp both in terms of airiness and vocals in general. While it is not lush and may sound a bit thin, they sound pretty god like. Just saying~

 

But your impressions match mine, and it can sound anemic depending the fit, and types of genre you listen to.

 

It's bass isn't as thin as I stated before, just like you said.

 

And your bass impressions is the "pull" effect I mentioned. You can feel it, it is sharp sounding, clear, it's a good thing, while the re700s are soft, but pretty good.

Oms should be getting here today. smily_headphones1.gif

Hopefully they don't pull me to far away from my BBs. I'm actually thinking about opening them up and seeing if I can mod them a little because... it's a fostex and that means it probably sounds better modded.

Okay so I'm in here to look around and I fell upon a few headphones that keep coming up and that interest me. The ML Mikros 90's seem like a great deal for $89.99 on amazon as far as I can tell and most seem to agree that they sound amazing and very true to the original intended sound the artist was going for.

 

Although, I am looking around and don't like to jump the gun on just about anything. It's been a few weeks since I started my search for "the one" and have yet to find it. Went to a few music stores around here and the only one that had any headphones to try (Sam Ash) only had some very not nice sets that I didn't even consider. It's just sooo difficult to find a headphone that catches my attention especially when I can't even listen to it before buying it somewhere. I just don't want to get something that I had imagined would sound amazing and have it sound like crap. I'm sure someone can relate... Hopefully :(

 

What good IEM/Portable headphones would you recommend for someone just getting into the wide world of hi-fi gear? I've made a few posts and none seem to be able to get me to go to one side or another. I will mainly be using these for when I am out and what not, but also at home and possibly at the gym if they are able to take that kind of use.

 

I've been most intrigued by these here...

 

IEM's - ATHIM70, VSonic GR07, Brainwavz B2

 

On-ear - B&W P5/P7, Sennheiser Amperior's/HD25-1 ii, Philips M1 and of course the ML Mikros 90's

 

There are some over ear that I like, but I want something I can use everywhere for the first pair of nice cans. I understand this isn't the suggestions page, but if you guys could help me nail it down or introduce other cans even I would love you all!

post #21343 of 32908
So I finally gave in and decided to get the the Mikros 90's just to find out that Amazon won't ship them internationally, bummer frown.gif

Haven't listened to the H3s yet but 1st reaction to those Pistons, MAN ARE THEY WARM!!! :L3000:

 

Not at the level of the VSD1s for sure, maybe on par with those LG QB2s but........

 

They are alright, but a bit too warm for even this basshead.

 

Tyme to tips rolls these bad bois!!!


Oh gawd are the Pistons really that ugly? They didn't look like this in other pictures :/

edit: I was using the smaller stock tips though, right now Im trying the large.
