Okay, bass is solid and plentiful (still can't see how these were called bass-light .... neutral maybe, but not bass-light). Guitars sound very nice through the Mikros, with a nice wide soundstage. Vocals are quite decent, but haven't Wowed me yet (like in the On1 and HP50 or M500). I realize I should judge these too harshly until I get about 40 hours or more. I do hear the potential in these. Right now I can say the Mikros stands with the M500 and On1, but it's not surpassing them yet for me. And it's not making me miss listening to the HP50, but for the price - it is now - it's a quite a phenomenal headphone. Glad I have it and good recommendation fellas!
Sounds very nice through the Fiio E10/E9 combo.
For me, it was a comparison to the es700s. They had pretty good bass quantity. It still didn't satisfy me, but it had enough and were not bass-light. These, in comparisons to the es700s, were bass-light. Anything below the es700's quantity is bass-light for me.
There is plenty of bass though, and depending on sources and recordings, the bass can change accordingly.
Pretty surprising to hear that these are well against the on1s! Won't be long now...
HAHA! That's what I'm missing as well, so! the fiios that is.
