Dang....wish I was stateside!!!

 

One vendor on Amazon had it for $8.95 with international shipping, but I think I got the last one...tried to order two but it went to "sold out".

I think that is the same vendor that has it listed for 12.95 on ebay, but $17 shipping to Canada.  Dang.....

Went on ahead and just bought a second pair from Amazon since they finally dropped the price back down from $99. What I've noticed from Amazon is that they'll drop their prices when stock gets low and then when stock is refilled they'll usually push the price back up in 1-3 separate increments. So, ultimately I'm out $152 for both pairs.

^ You know that when people start hording headphones like this, that either there is a lot of insanity in the air, or else the headphones are incredibly good bang for the buck. Which is it people! :smile:

i might throw the money at a pair of leather pads...probably the flattish ESW11LTD type.

tats 60bucks i think..ouch. 

Or should i just walk around with the JmoneyBeyerBigtyres..? hehe.

ya..get another for spares...since its going out of production..

a portable can that projects such depth n clarity is hard to come by.

Too many run of the mill popishcans around..and charging 150 n up.

i almost bought the P3 actually..its very clear too. but dun think it projects the kind of depth i am hearing from mikros..

i am a depthaddict.

Supplies are limited.  Offer good only as long as supplies last!!!

 

BEWARE: you may have to whittle down the input plug barrel of the ET-4 to fit the MLs access hole [which is spec-ed out for a 6.5 mm/0.25 input plug barrel].  So if you are not up to the machining, kindly decline the offer.


^ ehhh can i have your modded set instead??? :ksc75smile: Cuz don't gots the skittles to machine it down to fit so...... would love to hear how they sound.

 

Anywho my cheapo beats cable is in, haven't listened to them yet cuz breaking them in a bit but they fit like a glove, exactly as the stock cable.

 

Impressions to come........................ later.

Well, I really like them, and I'm only moderately insane. :D

 

Honestly, I just can't imagine another pair of headphones sounding as good at the price, even for two pairs. This is based both on what I've read here and heard myself. So, since they're being discontinued, I might as well buy a second pair for backup until I'm ready to pill the trigger on something more expensive, or until something in the price range comes along and beats these.

You and your TE05.  I'm going to try them...and if they are not as good as the Martin Logans I'm going to find you and smack you in the head with my Mikros.

 

 

Actually...I'll smack you in the ass with a stick while I wear my 90s.  

 

It's going to look something like this:

:deadhorse:

Dude, mochill knows, HE KNOWS.

 

Leave it at that. :p

 

don't act like your pre-mikros self.

 

Act like your current self.

I just found them at Maria & Mildred's Audio Shoppe for $29.95 + free shipping so I ordered 6 more pairs. When they arrive, I will take three weeks off work so I can break each one in compare them and write up reviews on each :rolleyes:

Beagle are the Paradigm H15 even close to these hyped up Mikros? Saw them around same price as well, similar sort of pad style and form factor, sort of.

 

And the ADL , something about those keeps brining me back to stare at the listings

 

Thanks for all your Mikros90 impressions everyone.
