To be honest so far it is like not really having a new can, so no real new toy syndrome. Cooler if it was like you with the RE700 and Mikros which are more different. I guess I don't sound that hype-ful or excited due to that.
At least I can say for sure, that those thinking about pairing the Mikros with the C5 should do it cause the CD666/C5 was epic so the Mikros 90/C5 should be the same.
Forgot to respond to this.
I totally understand you bud, no worries!
I don't mind whatever your impressions were, I just hope you enjoy them!
And enjoy them you have! Nice impressions, pretty well done meng! Continue to burn them in, they do improve overall. I truly don't mind hearing it the way it is now, it's pretty good so far, even with a few more hours of burn-in, I bet it'll sound better for sure! These guys have outdone themselves, truly a audio grade worthy class of headphones.
Now I feel obligated to tour the re700s so people know the SQ differences between the martin man and the audio eloquentia. Especially since the footprints are similar to one another, and the weight as well!
