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...

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.

With the money saved, you can buy that SECOND PAIR!!

The way you guys keep talking about these headphones... I ordered the last pair for$79 on Amazon, expected to arrive tomorrow (also my first pair of serious headphones) If tears aren't flowing out of my eyes the moment I start listening to them, I got trolled.

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!!!

@Maxx134


I'm assuming that your didn't come glued together? 
They came with plastic part for the beats can but WERE NOT GLUED ON!!!
So I just easily peeled them off the plastic wich is an oval shape just like the mikros so it was perfect snug fit....
I got them on ebay:
