But you can never have enough of dat phat B_ASS. :L3000: 

 

edit: oh that is if your sources are weak, but like many have already posted they scale crazy well with better gears so.......

... go check yo' self before yo' wreck yourself. :basshead:

Available at Newegg for $68.99, and they're offering a $20 rebate card between now and 2/28 ($48.99!).

 

They must really want to get rid of their stock...

That's supposed to happen.  The diaphram crinkles and uncrinckles.  This happens with most closed cans.

They do have sub-bass though.  Sure, there might be other cans out there which have more, but there are many, many models that don't have as much sub-bass as the Mikros.

 

 

Don't go spreading rumors that the Mikros is lacking sub-bass. :mad:

It's unfortunate because while I like the sound, they're uncomfortable to me. 

Probably put them up for a cheap sale, or return them.

 

Before you sell them, stretch the headband.  My pair was a little too tight until I stretched them.

You must be used to more subbass.  The Mikros' subbass is fine.  It's flat, neutral, balanced.

 

I still do not know what "bass texture" or anything "texture" means.

^ OH WOW!!! CRAZY SWEET DEAL. Just emailed newegg to see if they will refund me the $20 for my ebay store order. If not i'll just refuse shipment and have them send it back. haha

 

D'YAM newegg is getting cut throat with the prices. NICE!!!

 

They want to steal all the customers from amazon it seems. :bigsmile_face:

^ LoL but they are lacking that fullness, texture, depth in their sub bass though. :rolleyes: If you have heard basshead audiophile cans/iem like the ATH WS99, JVC FXZ200, ATH CKS1000s, Sony XBA-H3s you'll understand whatimeng.

^ Bass/ sub bass texture is LITERALLY the visceral sense of the bass that is felt not heard, well heard as well but yeah..... What i mean by this is that visceral/ gut sense of the music which the bass conveys.  When the sub bass is masterfully presented you can hear its deep throaty texture from the sub bass extension/depth hence there needs to be fullness in order to sound satisfying.

 

A lot of cans reaches deep into the sub bass regions, such as the Philips Fidelio X1s as well as these Logans (when not properly amped) but the sub bass lacks the fullness/ texture which makes it sound kinda boxy and flat. This is what i meant that there is "texture" and fullness to the sub bass.

fake red Beats cord better after burn in, still not there.
I'm from the "needs more bass" crowd, though, as stated earlier, it is intermittent, sometimes sounds fine, sometimes anemic.

My Teac shipped.

 

I talked to Newegg. I ordered the 23rd, but was invoiced the 24th. They said to call this rebate center number to see if I was eligible 1-800-953-3098. If not, I have to refuse shipment.

I get that visceral sense of sub-bass with the M500's and WS99's. Will be interesting to see where the 90's fit in (assuming I ever friggin' get them lol)

Thanks for the heads-up.  Ordered a second pair.

 

Am I crazy? :tongue_smile:

post #2234 of 6486

Good as it is...

i dun think the stockMikros will ever overtake the TOTL bigcans.....

the drivers are being heard, "just above the waist". :tongue_smile:

 

unless u unlock...

 

 

 

 

...erm..what are u so afraid of?

 

Last nite i put my T1 back into the garage after 10mins... put the moddedMikros back onto my head.

Will resolve this matter when i have more time at the next review board meeting.

Amazon confirmed my $10 credit.  If anyone ordered the ML90's at the $80 price and received delivery less than 1 week ago you should be able to get a credit for the $10 price drop.
