No problem friend.

Well, once you try these.mikros on, that nickname will continue to be used based on their epic looks and sound. your current peers won't be able to match you in status!


.....just don't let anyone know the current price of these phones!

PredatorZ has alerted ML about the thread.  It would be great to have them weigh in on the discussion.  I don't think they realize just how "revolutionary" their Mikros 90 are.  They set about, apparently, to make a simple iPod-compatible product, but developed a true audiophile masterpiece that, I think, has the potential to capture a sizable international market--and become a bona fide Head-Fi CLASSIC/LEGEND in the process.

 

We get a 15% commission on all their sales!

SF,

Got the Beats knock-offs yesterday evening after getting back late from work.

 

My perceptions agree with with yours: The BASS is BOSS with these unassuming cheapos!

 

ANOTHER testament to to the incredibility of the Mikros 90: Different Cable = Different Headphones.  AMAZING on my He-Man rig!

 

Bass is like a dense plasma that is about as articulate as I have ever heard.  Thick, growling, complex.

 

My only issue, with just 4-5 hours of break-in, is with the uber-uber treble resolution, which seems just a bit reticent:  a whisper where there should be a more audible phrase.  For example the tambourine on "If You Feel" from the remastered Crown of Creation disc is not as well relieved with the ersatz Beats as with the Pipeline.  Also, the cheapos lack the ultimate balance and coherency of the ET-4.  Right off the bus, the ersatz Beats sounded a little harsh in the highs, too, but after a few hours they began to settle down.

 

With the Beats knock-offs the Mikros 90 can produce prodigious bass while simultaneously resolving feathery delicate treble detail.  Gracie Slick's vocalizations were AMAZING!!
 

Interested in your observations with more burn-in hours.  I''ll hook them up to my desktop rig today for further run-in.

 

                                               99 cents on Amazon. . .99 cents on Amazon. . .99 cents on Amazon. . . 

 

. . . and a potential stop gap solution for those hesitant to do the Maxx/Lors MikrosHypedBass Mod just yet (because they have only one pair of the Mikros).

 

Good call, sfwalcer!!!

 

C'mon folks, how about a nice round of applause for the SF meng!!!

I'd be willing to give you the felt from the solo pad, but I don't know how similar it is to the original. 

Thanks for the offer!

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 cherry 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.

Predator,

This has earned entry into the ANNALS of Mikros 90 HYPEDOM!!! 

 

 

********************************************************************************************************************************************************************

It's time for the first annual Hype-down at high noon.

 

But you have to be strappin' AT LEAST TWIN Mikros 90s, pard!!  Stock and MikrosHypedBass.  

 

We welcome all out-of-thread pistoleros: "DRAW, SUCKER!!!"  The Mikros 90 are gonna put ya six feet under.  Start gettin' measured for your coffins NON-MIKROSers.  

 

This here Head-Fi Universe ain't big enough for the both of us!!

 

Elvergun, the Predator, the Doctor, Trunks, SF, Maxx and Lors are gonna form a posse.

 

It's time to run all them other headphones outta Dodge!!!

Lol, I can't help but laugh when I read these posts. In a good way :)

Fiio X3 + Mikros 90 + great recordings= THE BEST OF PORTABLE AUDIO!

 

My only problem I have is the fit.  It takes forever to get them on right.

Plastic surgery can permanently alter your skull for a perfect fit "every time".  Mikros-Surgery will be up-and-coming in the years ahead.

"And doctor, look!, what do we do about that permanent smile that's on his face?  It has all the indications of Mikros 90-induced Nirvana that I read about in med school!"

Now cut that out, Lors!  You're making me desperate to MOD the Mikros, but I don't have the modding pair with me at the moment.  Hey!  Maybe I can mod this desk lamp!  It's not the Mikros 90, but it'll do for now.

 

*EDIT: "Cranking up" the modded desk lamp just ain't cuttin' it for some strange reason.

And the smart plastic surgeons will charge extra for a "bass mod" to your head...who knew that a discontinued headphone would spawn it's very own economic offshoots!
