The sound is crazy good. I am assuming this song is a reference for most folks.

I did enjoy the stock Mikros without mod...there was good bass.

But unplugging that little hole just opens up this can from a small bookshelf speaker to a full blown floor stander.
Most telling is that big big sound scape. Easy depth portrayal..more effortless.

It's like a cross between a denon d7000 bass with a T1 clarity.

As far as cable goes...it's a trial n error tweaking until u hit your personal sweetspot IMHO.
The v moda cable works on my home set up better than the stock cable.
But failed with my Sansa n iPad. tongue.gif

^ What's Hotel Cali??? :blink:

 

And yeah it is trial and error cuz we all own different sources etc etc, but every cable has its own unique characteristics so...... good to iron it all out so folks can pick the one that best matches their personal preferences. :)

 

I FREAKEN LOVE THE SOUND OF STOCK CABLE TBH.

Yup, that would make the 90's truly epic in my books.

 

So @Maxx134, Sf isn't requesting, he's demanding!  :D

^ +1 LMAO:deadhorse:

 

What i posted about the beats cable still stands, cuz they still make these Logans sound the most fun/ musical/ conventional in presentation. I just didn't know, nor can imagine that burning them in makes them lose some of their fullness is alls. They still got it but it is just not as overt/ bombastic as before. LoL

Mikros 90 = cable-roller's dream = tube-roller's dream = amp-roller's dream = source-roller's dream = MODDER's dream = tweak-roller's dream

 

Get with the program, Head-Fi!!!  

Whatta ya got--if ya ain't got the Mikros 90?  SOCKS in your ears right now?????


They are a perfect tool for reviewing gear and recordings, love all the suggestions.. you guys are killing my wallet... but I am loving it. Not a perfect analogy, but to truly get the full potential, these headphones need time on the vine to ripen, and like a nice sweet cheery or strawberry, there is this explosion you get from how real and natural it tastes, very organic, its hard to put exact words on it, but when it just sounds right, you know it.

Fell asleep with it 3times actually.

Or maybe my ears were numbed....lolz


I think the fit has to break in a bit, I know I can wear mine longer now, takes much less time getting them on the sweet spot, so over all I have really grown used to the few fit nit picks, and just dig the groovy sound !

Thanks. It took USPS from the Feb11 to Feb17 to move them on the first mule from Minneapolis to New York. Then on Feb 17 at 6am they got moved onto a moose to get shipped from New York to Canada, where they have been stuck in "International item has left originating country and is en route to Canada" mode ever since. I am hoping that the tracking is just not up to date, and that suddenly tomorrow I will see "out for delivery"!

I've sent stuff to Europe and the tracking stops at the airport where they are shipped on their merry way.   All hope seems lost for a day or two until they magically reappear at the destination country and tracking starts to work again.

 

Just hang in there...I'm sure you'll get them by the time this thread is 500 pages long.

Ya, I hope so. this time of the year, with all the bad weather, tracking inst up to snuff, I had a manual that got lost, tracking said 4 to 6 weeks( I almost had kittens) and it showed up a few days latter, so I'm thinking it can't be long..... but at least you know, it will be worth the wait.

^ Meng weak arse ebay has forsaken me, GRRR!!! :mad: Still trying to get my hands on a 2nd for modding, etc.

 

If anyone don't like these and wants to offload them, i'll gladly take them for around $60 or so shipped.

 

C'mon there has gots to be someone not happy with these right???  I don't mind used. :ksc75smile:

 

At this point i might just have to get a set from amazon new. haha :triportsad:

 

When they restock them that is. : P
