Color temperature on that picture is off. Probably the yellow flash.

Tried some pads I had laying around loose, couldn't get them to fit on the Mikros...any suggestion of pads I can try if I have to get some? Still feel I need more bass to these things, bass needs to be "felt" at least a bit imo. It's a pity as these cans do everything else so terrifically...

Which pads did you try? If it was 840 pads and they didn't fit I might suggest looking at 750 pads?

Just a couple of loose ones I had sitting around, don't want totake off any in use...I'm just checking out the ML thread, seems there is a discussion on some of this there, may be helpful, thanks.

Well, got through the Mikros thread, aside from all the hype, didn't really get info on pad replacement (SF is the only one doing it, I believe. He didn't actually replace it, he put another over the one already there). I guess I'll just take some off and try them, buy one that works if it makes a difference. Gotta go, later...

Question about "rolling tips".  I've always assumed this meant trying out all your tips on the latest iem's you just bought. 

 

But after reading a few posts I'm starting to wonder if I misinterpreted.  Is there more to tip rolling than just trying them out?  Are you rolling them between your fingers to make them softer?  Does this apply to the foam tips to make them thinner before you stick them in your ear?

People just use the word 'rolling' for trying out different kinds of something, whether it's tips, cables, tubes or whatever. Don't know who came up with it, but it seems to have established itself.

It's like dough, man. We roll our own tips. We pour that molten silicon into the mold and wait for it to cool. That was we always have the tip shape and size that we want for our headphones. smily_headphones1.gif

So I've only done this once or twice, but today I decided to take Cardas on my morning commute to work. I threw on the Sony Hybrid tips for the first time. It's like a rekindled love affair all over again with the Ear Mirror (not that I ever stopped loving it). If ever there was an earphone that improves with good burn in and the right tips, the Cardas EM5813 is it! I love this earphone! It, the ASG-2, and the H3 are my three favorite universals, period. Then a huge nod to the M200,  DN-1000 and the IM07 (the DN-900, AX-35 and AX-30 are close in the mix). Can't wait to see (hear) what the V and TE-05 bring to the table.

I guess you were able to tame that cable?

I was using Sony hybrid tips the past couple of days on the K323 but went back to the original tips today and I think I might prefer them (still debating with myself). One interesting thing is wit most IEM's I use large tips and when using hybrids on the K323 that is what I use, but with the default tips I am using the ones installed from the factory and they are very small and consequently seal quite deep in my ear. So don't just switch out the tips to larger ones automatically, give the small ones a chance. When I try the larger tips they don't seal very well at all as they are further back in my ear.

I will throw out a caution on this IEM, the lower treble does have a spike which some might find offensive. I have grown used to my K545 which does not have the spike so I do find it annoying at times but only for some songs. I still say it sounds better than the list of IEM's I mentioned earlier but do think the GR07 will out perform the K323 more than I initially mentioned due to some very slight grain in the treble I started to notice.
