You can push the mesh back into the cavity.

get it while it's cheap. (or you could get the non-aging for $20 more, and with a beautiful case).

 

This is a third party seller however, most likely not worth taking a risk, with an additional 340 yen for shipping.

^ Works out to $265CN (shipped) for us Canadians. Not quite "cheap", but still a good deal I'm sure.

post #21664 of 32906

Sorry to hear that wayne. Its original cost was $260+

post #21665 of 32906

Yeah, it's the Canadian $ exchange that is a drag lately. The 22650 yen to CN$ is $243, but to US$ is $220. Hmm, that's not as much exchange as I thought. I was thinking back to when they were something like $203US a few weeks ago (which made me think the Canadian exchange$ is more now - but it's not - just that the Yen price has gone up).

My mistake, forgot to check the party seller itself. Thanks

 

So the actual cost is. ¥ 24,210

haha no worries :) I still would have considered that seller as they have a good rating, but the extra shipping fee they charge isnt worth it to me.  Probably would just get it from amazon.jp since the price is a lot closer.  Is there somewhere with some more reviews on these?

I pried the mesh open with a fine-pointed tweezer  and removed the foam. Unfortunately, I deformed the mesh, and the sound became more sibilant. I ended up using a micro fiber cloth to both cover the nozzle and lessen the sibilance. The effect falls in between unmodified and no foam, which I'm good with.

You used to have Tascam TH-MX2 in 2nd place.  Did you change your mind?

I like the warmth of the MX2, but it is missing detail which the Pro 80 has. The Pro 80 got a knock because of the treble peak it has which can be fatiguing without EQ.

 

Although the HE-500 is tops, I still wasn't 100% satisfied with it either. I'm hoping the 560 will fix that, otherwise I give up on attempting to find a headphone flagship endgame until one becomes unanimously praised and semi-affordable. I refuse to spend more on headphones than what my DIY speakers cost, which even the HD800 can't touch.

Agree, that's how I hear it also, which puts the MX2 below the Pro 80 and S500 as well.

 

I'm also loving the Fidelio S2 and Yamaha HPH200.  They both may unseat my current #1s for IEM and HP!

Resistance is waning on the Mikros 90, mostly due to Mochill, Vlenbo, and Sfwalcer  :D

 

Opinions on whether I should get it?  I already have the Yamaha HPH-200, Gemini HSR-1000, and JVC HA-S500.  Are they a true upgrade or more of a side grade?  I listen mostly to pop and rock.

 

One concern is that the Mikros will be bass-light for me.  How is the bass compared to anything in my sig?

Total upgrade like you won't believe it!

 

Has sufficient amount of bass that has some of the tightest and clearest bass with the best texture I've heard from a headphone. I like the re700's bass more, but this headphoe is unbelivable.

 

The bass is less than the s500 in quantity, but has SO MUCH QUALITY that you can't believe it! The mids best the has500 and yamahas, as it has soe lush qualities and the type of clarity, openness, and depth that you usually miss out on other headphones.

 

Since you listen to pop and rock, these martins are just what you need, especially with the crunchyness of eletric guitars, great strumming of acoustic guitars, and the tonality of these things are awesome!!!!!

 

You can easily tell voices, instruments, and sound apart with these headphones, and the timbre is fantastic!

 

Best 3d presentation I have heard, and I hear a "black" space within the soundstage, and speaking of soundstage, it has a good width and great height that most headphones miss.
