Oh snap...I thought that was the picture of sfwalcer's lobotomy.
That would require a Balanced mode on the Mikros...
i believe the surgeon will need to drill another hole somewhere...on the right.
Pipe in this music for the op to stand a chance...
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!
I also sent the international sales coordinator an email with a link to this thread.
Maybe we can all send Martin Logan emails informing them how much we like their headphones.
Perhaps our messages will not change their minds about discontinuing this model, but it might make the engineers who designed the Mikros 90 feel proud of their work.
Send me a PM if you want the email address.

ps ..... start looking for unwanted bits n pieces to mod the can.
Listening to the Mikros 90 [stock] with the Beats knock-offs. Some welcome midbass fullness--recording-dependent (not a whole lot on this recording of the Guess Who's "These Eyes").
Soundstage seems not as open as with either the stock or ET-4 cables. Ditto what SF said already: some loss in transparency and resolution compared with stock cable--as well as speed IMHO. "Laughing" has some nice deep bass.
Test Track: "Pretty as You Feel" from Jefferson Airplane's 2400 Fulton Street collection. Bass is full, tight. Nice rendering of this tough track. Vocals/harmonies are intimate and well sorted out. Have really gained a new appreciation for the bass tracks on this collection: nice work by Jack Casady. The acoustic guitar work is also very enjoyable ("Good Shepherd"). "Eskimo Blue Day" . . . some great big rollin' bass licks.
Not sure how the cable changes with more burn-in. SF notes that some fullness might be lost. Could be loss of ultimate coherency across the bass bands.
For 99 cents, these cables will show you another side of the Mikros 90, a more "popularly tuned" take on things as SF also notes.
I'm off to audition the Mikros 90 with the SPL Phonitor!!!
Muhahaha...another victim falls prey to the deception.
Our overlords at Martin Logan will be so proud of us.
I've got it on speed dial
