Ohhhhh, Baby!!!

Might have a copper one made, too, following impressions of the Ag.

^ Congrats!!!

 

Oh speaking of cable talk, regarding cable burn-in. Just wondering if you have to connect the cable with the headphone to burn them in or can you just hook it into a mp3 player, etc have the music on and not connect them to the headphone.  Are they still in use/ burning in then??? :confused_face:

 

Cuz if they are i don't mind just having the cables hooked to my mp3 players/ desktop rig and leave them on without it connected to the headphone so there is less noise. LoL

Those CAL 2s should be pretty damn good, think it has a biocellulose diaphragm just like the VSonic gr07s cuz that would interesting to see how theu compare performance wise.

 

Congrats btw on dem CALs!!! :beerchug:

 

Hmmm did you get the "Pro" version of that Havi B3s??? Cuz it seems to be as elusive as the Loch Ness Monster tbh. LoL i do wonder if they are REALLY that good sounding or that bhazard is just blowing hot air. haha :rolleyes: 

 

 

Yeah, I can't wait to compare the two. 

 

About the B3, I'm actually not sure. i don't really remember what Bhazard said about his. I ordered mine close to after he ordered his and selected the pro version. I mean, everything sounds clear, has solid and tight bass, a lot of sub bass, and a big soundstage. If I'm not mistaken, he said the the newer version had a clouded mids or highs. To my ears, the ones I have seem to be fairly neutral with slight bass coloration--it's noticeably less than the VSD1s but more than the 90 (unless called upon). I just don't want to say too much on them before I get an amp because I do remember him saying these improved a lot when amped, and they have the highest impedance out of all the cans I have so far. Right now, they're definitely no better than the 90, but they're pretty darn good to my ears.

Duly noted.

What are you amping the Mikros 90 with?  If you have not heard them juiced from a full-sized amp [with the Pipeline], then you have not heard the sub bass I just described.

The next can that ML designs, should be an over-ear can

with an extra outer cellulose driver with a crossover for ...

chest thumping...balls wrecking subbbb subbbbbb basssss

 

As it is, this Mikros satisfy most/all of my music taste...

i actually use/tune a Pro900 for classicals..lolz.

But its dead now..sigh, so this Mikros is standing in very well indeed.

That sense of INNER SPACE, with CLARITY is effortless on this gem.

Bass : i can feel the quality of the hide on the cattledrums, how hard its been hit...

ok, i am exaggerating ...forgive me,

....actually i could see the brand of the skins they use. lolz.

 

I am saving some coins for the next Mikros...

what we want is a MAKROS..

i want ALL of my EAR to be bombarded by music !!

not just the tunnel...

MARTIN LOGAN DESIGNERs...u heard us????!!!!

 

 

ermmm...or something likethis..? :P

Regardless of what headphone is used (HD650, Mikros 90), cable effects should still be observed, no? How the hell is a different driver going to affect the performance of cable?

HD650 is known to be receptive to cable changes, yet there was no audible difference recorded.

If there is any audible difference in cable, it's very subtle.

think it affects timbre..brightness..transient...space..body....enough to get the listener excited...like me n my M100cable .. n ultrasone ext cable..

and a few more that i will be buying...cheapbeatstuff...everycable stirs me. hehe.

Honestly, Pataburd may be on to something. These 90s keep surprising the heck out of me. I decided to listen to some progressive rock tonight, which I try to avoid due to it being a big time sink, and the 90s portayed the music beautifully with sub bass to boot. Now, the bass wasn't basshead heavy, mainly due to progressive rock not being made to be that way in my experience. But, the bass that was there was tight and the interplay between the snare and the heavy bass notes, while simple, were, IMO, pretty darn breath taking; all just before leading into a more intricate pattern utilizing the entire kit. Not only that but there are these light bass notes that I can hear in the lower-back of my head that I can immediately feel jump down into my chest. And, the cymbals just sound oh so splashy. And, the way the recording is made has it where a lot of the time you'll hear the cymbals start in one ear and fade ever so slightly out the other. The clarity is insane.

 

The extension (?) at the end of some of the guitar notes also has a really nice in head feel to them as well. And, in Liberer Le Piano each strike of the piano can easily be felth throughout my head with the lower notes easily extending down to my chest. 

 

Anyway, the album I'm talking about is Breatherman by OCOCAI. 

 

Lastly, I listened to a couple of songs with solid bass guitar, and I have to say that the notes from the bass guitar can be felt a lot more than what comes from the woofer-like bass. I definitely feel the bass chord reach down to my chest.

^ Cables DOES seem to make a difference but are they worth it to warrant some of those OUTRAGE prices some asks for??? HELLS NO!!!

 

And the fancy materials/ more expensive they are doesn't ALWAYS guarantee the best/ your desired sound as some of the cables for these Logans has shown. Just saying..... but like everything in this hobby there is science behind cables so it's not ALL snake oil. Nonetheless "CABLE GUYS YOU JUST CAN'T TRUST THEM!!!" :tongue:

Forgot to say that the 3Dness is awesome as well. Drums all around, above, and beneath you. And, when I said the cymbal was oh so splashy I didn't mean uncontrolled but like a thousand fine, but noticeable, sparkles ever so swiftly cascading from the heavens. Lol

 

Anyway, I can't wait to get my other schiit and compare.

Hoping to get a Burson HA-160 next week, too--with the money from the sale of the HE-6 (with dollars to spare).

Decided to start with the 160 and do some solid state reconnaissance.  Don't need the Soloist as a pre-amp (and it is appreciably more expensive right now, anyway).

I have a feeling that the Mikros 90, with good solid state, is going to sound even better.  My KMF SS amp does well, but I think the MLs will do better with some solid state BEEF offered by the Burson.  From the reviews, it also sounds like the Burson should reinforce the Mikros 90's inherent strengths of detail retrieval, low level resolution and tonal hue/density.
