Oh yeah this cheapo beats aftermarket cable brings the "beats" to these Logans alright. More full sound, punchier with more weight and warmth as well as texture??? SAY WHOA???

 

......!!!

 

Man these are crazy BOMBASTIC sounding, the least funky in presentation by far. More of your conventional audiophile basshead can sound but done soooo right, kinda reminds me of the WS99s. LMAO Best the craps outta' the ES700s in the bass department for sure now. WOW!!! O.O

 

I DON'T BELIEVE!!! MOMMIE HOLD ME!!! :L3000:

 

Doesn't sound boxy, dry or flat at all. NICE. SO FUN SO DYNAMIC & ENGAGING me likey. With this sound these Logans can even be great for portable use now. LMAO

Just ordered one of these (off Amazon).  If the listening experience goes South, I'm holding you personally responsible, meng.

Lots of user complaints on Amazon citing that the cable breaks after a short while.

Does anyone know how much it would cost for these to be shipped to Australia? I've looked everywhere for some decent mail fowarders, and they're just all so expensive. Amazon won't ship these, Newegg won't ship internationally, does anyone know where else these are sold that ship to oz?

^ Think Sonicelectronic ships worldwide, but they sell them for $99.

You can get them to price match amazon or the newegg $79 price by providing them the link, this option on the right of the page as seen below:

 

Low Price Guarantee

Seen it for less? Click here

 

I tried this before BUT they will not match the $79 price, instead they will issue a $10 off coupon so your order for these Martin Logans will be $89.99 instead of $99 plus shipping cost to your country.

 

Hope this helps. :)

Maxx, THANK YOU(!) for the driver mod.  I may try it on (one of) my other pair(s) and do comparisons.  My question would be: how is the [stock] midbass presentation affected?
Welcome aboard the Mikros 90 EXPRESS!!!

Thanks for the entrance to the committee.
I always felt I was missing a headphone and this is it. Deja vu feeling I have a great can.
I noticed the issue here for a good bass seal is the tilt of the cups.
I think pushing them back a little more on top of ear works..

I will do a comparison to stcck once I get the second one.
I believe they may be more open or agressive with the port open.

Also I am noticing a lot of micro detailing and air in my music..

Ok, got the Fiio cable, fits, also ordered some cables SF linked to on eBay...Radio Shack ones too big, maybe I'll send them to you (Pataburd) if the offer is still open. Starting to hear more bass, not sure if break in, brain break in, cable change...still not too comfortable for prolonged wear, but slowly coming around.

So I finally got my hands on these.
They are brand new and not burned in they already sound sweet but a bit closed and not the largest sound but clarity and sweetness is there.

Let us proceed to the operating table:

Time to open them up...
Don't worry about the screws falling into driver magnetic field as these screws seem heavy and non magnetic.


Don't worry about the chrome center just keep it together with the driver side...

As you can see, I am on the right side driver.
This unit is totally sealed and so the cup does nothing for the unit!


We will be removing ONLY the small adhesive felt in the center.
This is the "bass port"..!!

Now carefully and slowly pry off with a tiny flat screwdriver...

Once off, it can be saved to reapply at a later time if needed.


I used my felt to secure the wire from vibration which may occur from the tremendous bass you will now perceive,
So let's close it back up!

Align the unit back together without the screws ,
And then apply one screw at a time.
If you don't have screws removed before placing driver, they will get in way to align unit.


OK so now there you have it.
A REAL BASS INCREASE to sound like a BIG CAN ..
Woohoo!

 

Maxx134, thanks for the pictorial... awesome! That looks like a mod that even I could do without destroying anything. Very cool. I am very much looking forward to your ongoing perceptions. If that mod truly does enhance the bass without being at the detriment of other areas, I'll be very tempted to try it out. Very nice that it is completely reversible.

 

@sfwalcer, you're a wimp for not trying it with your 2nd pair! (you are one of the hoarders, no?)

Appreciate your ongoing attempts doc!

If they price match, and I can get this 5% off with a discount code, I think that I might end up buying them from this site. Thanks :)

They are gonna give you a lame reason that they can't price match the $79 deal but will give you a $10 off coupon for your current order, and if you can stack another "5% discount code" on top pf that go for it. haha Good luck. :beerchug:

Well get with the program buddy! Either get that 2nd pair and do the mod, or fire of another set to Max134. Seriously, we need someone to be doing some ab'ing with the stock versus the Maxx134 mod!
