Let them warm up, I think someone on the t90s thread had a similar issue but cleared up after some time.

More of a personal discovery, Miles Davis kind of blue album sounds great on my new speaker setup. smily_headphones1.gif

Doubt it.

 

Before shipping out the replacement, Brian at razordog tested and confirmed no defects, and even volume on both sides.

 

He also confirmed the defective driver on the first pair, crinkling, and uneven volume on the left side. This pair has the exact same uneven volume issue... but no crinkling.

Have you tried both cables to rule out that?
post #22069 of 26099

Yes, and multiple sources as well... and compared to my other headphones...

 

It's a QC issue... and I give up...

That is to bad, I don't blame you one bit. I walked away from my SHR-940 after my first pair broke. Just couldn't trust it wasn't going to happen again. If you can handle on ears, maybe those Mikros will do the trick. My inner geek wants to try the SHR-1540 something fierce. Having reviewed the 1840 I know the construction will not be an issue.

A pleasure, he's from Cuba, have some of his recordings, but, obviously, (from the video), need to go see him live...

So, back to the Mikros..I originally found them on the Deals thread, where the discontinued price drop was noted. I was on a bit of a spree with holiday sales, and wound up with 4 on ears ,ML, Yamaha 200 (I think), BT1350, and Sennheiser Amperiors, so I did a comparison and wrote it up. I liked the Sennheiser best, followed by ML and Yamaha in a dead heat, then lastly the Beyers. All the Mikros hoopla had me questioning my impressions. Tonight I listened to All Time Low (a guilty pleasure...fun band, rock hard, very melodic). Anyway, I was listening with ML first, admiring clarity, imaging ,etc etc. then I pulled out the Senns again...know what? Enjoyed the heck out of them. Sure, have some of that Sennheiser darkness, but rocked out like nobody's business, couldn't sit still. Still got the wide stage, details good highs, but, instead of "what an accurate, deep bass, with that pull", I FELT the bass push the music, much more fun than admiring the fine points of sound reproduction. Just me, of course, ymmv, and probably does, but that's why so many options are out there.
Still gonna play with the MLs, there might be a fun phone in there somewhere...
Just sayin'

That's how I feel with the mikros vs re700s.

 

Those were helpful thoughts doctor!

Well with nearly 50 hours burn in on the TE-50 I've discovered these can become a reference bass monster with the right tips. The MA750 single-flanges, for example, brings out major sub bass without obscuring the mids or highs. But no iem is perfect. The Fostex doesn't isolate well enough to be an out and about iem.

Some comparisons for Leo or anyone else who is interested.  Thought I'd throw the TE-05's into the mix with the Heaven V and Cardas because the Cardas sticks out like a sore thumb out of the three.  

 

Bass:  Cardas is really thick.  A mix of sub-bass and mid-bass.  Doesn't sound as controlled as the other two.  TE-05 has more sub-bass over the V's.  V's have more mid-bass.  Both the V and 05 have nice controlled bass, Cardas has control but not like the other two.  I definitely prefer the TE-05 and V in the bass department.  Can't pick which one I like more but the TE-05 might get the nod in bass.  

 

Vocals:  All three have nice vocals.  Can't really tell which one has is the most forward since all three are not recessed in any way.  Bass does protrude into the Cardas which gives more heft to the voices and adds a nice element to male vocals.  V's are in between the two and TE-05's are on the airer side which gives female vocals star treatment.  V's do well with both and I would give the nod to the V's for vocals followed by the TE-05 a close second.  Cardas still is strong on the vocals though.

 

Treble:  Cardas sounds more laid back than the other two but is just as detailed.  V's and TE-05's have really nice sparkly treble.  Can't tell which one extends more or less.  The TE-05's sound slightly thinner in treble but I don't hear this as being bad.  Both portray treble amongst the best I've heard.  Very detailed without a hint of harshness but the TE-05's get closer to that amount.  

 

All three do a great job of surrounding the music all around you.  The TE-05's seem bigger due to that really airy treble and is the least thick sounding of the three.  The V's can pick out all notes the best since it's tuned quite equally all around.  All three are really good in this department.  

 

My preferences are the V's and TE-05's of the three at this point.  The Cardas is still a keeper for me but will be used sparingly because of the thickness of the sound.  The bass of the TE-05's are absolutely amazing because it hits the low notes without any bleed and is strong.  V's are tight and has that mid-bass bump but not offending mid-bass.  Cardas just has big bass to my ears compared to the other two.

X2....nice DannyBai. I agree with pretty much everything stated. Let me add that the TE-05 is one fast dynamic driver! It was slamming Foo Fighters' Rope. I've also did some slight comparison of the TE-05 and the Doppios. The Doppios' vocals surpasses the TE-05 on many recordings. Just more natural, but the Fostex vocals are still great. Of course, TE-05 wins in bass, but the Doppios have very good bass that can go deep too. Some great earphones out that are really competing with each other. Can't say which is better. Really difficult.
