Martin Logan Mikros 90 On-Ear Headphones - Page 77

post #1141 of 5963
Anyone have a good quality 3 inch 3.5 male to 3.5 male aux cable for my new E07K that they could point me in the direction of? Just looking for one that looks cool and won't fall apart on me or maybe some materials to make my own.

Thanks. Can't wait to get them. They should be here Thursday and I still need to buy an amp. Been mulling over the options for about the last 3 months. Keep coming back to the C5 but I really don't want to pay $200. 

^ Hmmm dat C5 should sound AMAZING with these Logans, but they are pretty easy to drive so.......

 

Oh and i have seen the C5 drop as low a $100 here on the sales forums so......

 

Should buy from your fellow head-fier instead??? :)

^ I just use the one that came with my E17 and think it is pretty damn good. Not really a cable guy but the stock cable should be more than fine esp. since it's just a lowly E07K.:tongue:

 

Congrats on the new amp btw, was just teasin' ya', wlep not really. ;)

I actually keep forgetting about the sales forum. I'll definitely be looking there before I buy anything now. Thinking about it, if I can find a Meier amp for about $50-100 off I'll probably snatch it up and embrace the ramen with a side of emergen-C.

Looks like my E07K was on back order from the NewEgg seller. Is the $40 extra worth it for the E17 over the E07K?

if u have a pair of ALpha pads, reverse slip it onto the Mikros...and u have a quite comfy pair of headfones.

 

something like this..looks familiar? :P

Perhaps my favorite closed pair. They still look ugly. Overall though... my MA900 bests it in its speaker like soundstage. Obviously, this comparison doesn't mean much. These mids are like, open headphone mids. There's good air and warmth. Open headphones win in bass for me.

Not sure weather to buy more cans for the heck of it or just stick with the now legendary MDR MA900 and Martin Logan (two discontinued headphones), while upgrading my system...
Watching the Walking Dead on these is scary...those zombie sound like they're rubbing up on me.

I know you've stated it from post to post that you'd get the re700s.....

 

BUT....you should totes get the re700s! For sure!!

 

Them looks! And....

 

They're different sounding to the martin logans, while having similar sound positioning, 3d experience, and goody bass that sounds textured to the max...

post #1150 of 5963

THEY CAME IN :D (the ups guys are such trolls :mad:)

Initial Impressions:

 

Pros:

-Totally worth $90 (even $300 I would think)
-Totally whoops every other can I own (which isn't much)

-Totally awesome soundstage and presentation
-Totally realistic sounding, with a tonal balance that is quite neutral, but with speed, detail, and dynamics that are unmatched in my experience.

 

Cons:

-Not totally comfortable, but not so bad (probably can do much better with a pad swap/mod)

-Not totally efficient, it may be 26 ohms but I feel like it really benefits from the juice
-Not totally great for portable use, as it will slaughter poor source material with no mercy

All in all, these are an incredible reference can, totally worthy of the hype.
:happy_face1:

ok im sorry, this review totally went out of hand with the word totally, I apologize

Nice...I'm glad you like them.

 

 

Now, if you want to fit in with this Martin Logan crowd, you have two buy one or two more pairs.

Looks like you are not getting as much isolation though.
