Martin Logan Mikros 90 On-Ear Headphones - Page 111

post #1651 of 5771

Don't give them funny ideas.... :o But I do agree if you mean it figuratively!

 

I was going to buy martin logan floor tall speakers for $400 a set before, and I was so into getting that as it was cheap. 

 

I forgot to buy them...maybe I still have a chance...

 

 

These headphones are hecka cheap, and at $300, it's a no brainer.

 

But if it goes to $1000, I'm going to back away and save that money for a camera! ._.

Listened to Western Movie Themes: "A Fistful of Dynamite".  HUGE, 3-D soundstage, transparent and wholly enthralling with the Logans.

 

Gotta go to bed!!!  Martin Logan, PLEASE let me go to sleep!!!  : )

 

Anyone for Ennio Morricone?

Have decided that I will most likelu be modding my second pair of 90s next week and will compare them to the unmodded 90 and the CAL 2. 

 

@waynes world 

Been listenning to Yes and I have to say I'm liking them. I really enjoyed Spirit of Survival off of the Magnification album.

u heard it in a more delicate manner...cymbal decay..EPICEPICEPIC !! 

:beerchug:

 

add Fajro's ...cascading from heaven.. thats an OMG !

 

Haha! It was one of those type the first thing that pops into your head posts. Anyway, just saw this post and your other one about the decay. But, it's good that other people are hearing what I'm hearing. For a second there, after I made my post, I was wondering if I was just hearing things.

Will give em a look.

We have discussed it hear before, one place the ML's really shine is in decay, how a sound subtly fades away, normally the last standing wave of that sound will be absorbed by a wall or structure at on end of the recording venue, and this phenomenon I can clearly hear in cymbals on well recoded music you can hear them fade off to one channel.

  There are some who feel the ML's do particular genres better than others, for me, I listen to almost every kind of music, and they all sound great... to me !  I can't imagine how a very  faithful reproduction of what was recorded can be a downside for a transducer, the ML's have yet to show weakness or strain no matter what I throw at them, and no matter how loud, and my Ray Samuel s Predator has plenty of head room and never strains to drive all my headphones. The predator is almost euphoric in its tube like sound, but not loose and out of control like some tubes can be , just the nice warm feel of music, not transistors, which is why I think Ray is a genius at circuit design.. ( bowing on my knees to Mr.Samuels). Music should sound warm any ways, at least if you understand chemistry and physics, motion creates heat, so a transducer in a room will effect the air with micro changes in temperature as all the molecules collide and share energy and then melt into the wall as the dying echo of a hi hat... hehe , But of course to really change the temp in a room, tube amps help a lot.

 

Yeah, I'm really enjoying how drums sound as well. For example the visceral sense I get when the snare is hit and it's like you can really visualize the sound wave spread from each impact. I'm also one of those people that thinks, although the 90s handle most everything excellently, they seem to really shine in certain genres over other--progressive rock, jazz, piano, acoustics and soul/funk/rhythm really seem to stand out for me. But, that's probably more so related to persona preference. Anyway, I really can't wait to get my amp.

I have a Burson HA-160 [and a UPOCC silver cable] coming in next week, and am still on the lookout for a Lehmann Black Cube Linear.

 

Don't misunderstand me: the Mikros 90 sound superlative running from just about anything.  [I just had a fine listen from my home theater Sony BDP-S580 and the headphone out from the Denon AVR-1905.]  But when I hook these up to my best source and amp, they take me into a whole 'nother dimension of detail, resolution, extension, tonality and spatial realism whose overall sum is an exponentiated musicality.  Add a compatible after market cable and you land squarely on the REFERENCE Class side of highend, IMHO.

 

You will, I believe, discover over time--and after a lengthy break-in--that the Mikros 90 will respond noticably to every little change upstream; they're amazing in that respect.

 

Haha! A lot of us are going to be busy with these testing testing stuff out with these thanks to their malleability, especially for the hoarders. Next week is going to be a good week for me regarding head-fi related stuff.

Fajro... please give Yes's Close to the Edge a listen if you can find it. That's a classic, and I'm very much looking forward to listening to it with the 90's.

exactlyexactly how i felt standing in the washroom..... lol

 

classicals, soundtracks...ambient music works for me in addition...tat killer separation, depth n clarity...superb extention to the highs..n lows..

find myself repeating what i..and u guys been raving..   its the mikros rant...hype ..:P

 

:beerchug::beerchug:

 

Edit : its not that i want to write about Mikros again n again...but its the way the music is presented ..

the little naunces, forcing into my attention in unexpected ways that makes it all the more spectacular.

Now it could be the rat taH taK on the snare...moments later that vocal right upfront...soaring up n up cleanly..

the violins' cascading in layers DEEP in the background.. little little things that tells u this can is a crazygem.

Alright found it. Was having some issues with the 1972 album but got it working. Having to go back and forth between two libraries is starting to be a pain. Anyway...liking it so far :gs1000smile:

Ha! Thinking about it I think I'll have to give soundtracks a listen this week. But, yeah, extension is craaaazy! Hyped indeed! It's definitely a good thing you guys pushed past the first pages and kept this thread going. I'm pretty sure Amazon's stock has dipped down to 0 a few times this past week.
