Make no mistake about it: the Mikros 90 produce DEEP, WELL-DEFINED bass. They do not have the midbass hump/emphasis of many popular products out there. The ML's bass is balanced, extended and articulate.
So vienbo may be actually perceiving/reporting lack of midbass emphasis--maybe not. But his comments have tended to puzzle me.
However, anyone who auditions the Mikros 90 and concludes that they have "no bass", or that they are "bass light", is not listening to the same set of cans that I am. In some cases, the Mikros 90's bass can go down--cleanly--to levels that seem to shake the ground beneath my feet.
For me, this is a Wild Card that is definitely worth playing. The Mikros 90's low frequency response is "All Bass, No Mud".
And apparently, they will not be around, or as plentiful, in another few months.
Knowing what I know now, I would have regretted not buying a pair if/when the supply vanishes.
there isn't a lack of bass, it's actually plentiful. However, at times, (and yes, this mostly pertains to the mid-bass) it isn't enough for me. Sometimes, to my ears, when the bass is not enough for me personally, I tend to call bass light.
And I already know it depends on recordings, which is why I say sometimes.
That's the only problem I have with it, but other than that, I'm in good terms with the mikrons.
Are you still puzzled?
Besides, the ws99s and re700s keep me company for the bass and the rest of the sound spectrum.
Also, I retract my statement of instruments sounding thin.
They actually don't, after a few hours of wearing them the other day, I actually believe that they have enough weight to them, this headphone is awesome!
