What we need is a mod to do away with that lower treble peak.

Man i was wondering if I was the only obe who thought the treble was a bit sharp tongue.gif. Going to see how things go after a bit of burn in.


Oh btw sf, never said I wasn't going to try the bass mods. Just in due time. A little sub bass boost might be interesting... But again going to wait and see how they are after burn in.

Mikros has a clean refined sound...like finely shifted flour...v absorbing once u get sucked into the way it presents the music...
Once u get sucked into the hype.

 

Well said!

Huh! I haven't noticed that myself yet (and I was expecting it a bit before burn in). Most likely the music I am listening to isn't prone to that.

Hmm that's probably the case. The kefs treble is a bit more subdued so it works well on some aggressive edm tracks. Though with some other music I listen to its not as bad... Though i don't think sharp was the exact, accurate term to use.

The GCHA is due tomorrow.  Had a good audition last week at the audio shop.  Let's hear how things play out on the home system.
The winner of the first round (HA-160 v. GCHA) advances to final versus the Lehmann BCL [which I have not found yet].
Will keep the open-cell foam mod going for the next 50-100 hours.

I made money on the Burson ...blush.


Hey, u used quite a big thick piece of foam on your first cave dive huh...did it fill up the whole cavern?
How does it affect the sound depth?



My Sansa clip zip just died on me...hung...is there a reset button somewhere?



Using my wife's Sansa loaded with mp3 now....
The lower resolution still makes the Mikros sound quite good..like a regular popish can.

Later on it is sure going to be interesting to ab the 90's with the m500's. One thing for sure though.. putting on the m500's is relatively like putting on soft comfy pillows onto the ears... can the 90's ever be that comfy? We will see after the headband stretching...

Try holding the home and power button for 20 secs on the clip.

I'm a bit reticent to post this since the hype train appears to have too much fuel already, but these are damn impressive. My reference for portable cans at this price range was my Gemini HSR1000 (a.k.a. Takstar pro 80) and the Mikros thoroughly whoop them on all (sonic) fronts. These have an incredibly wide and natural soundstage that belies their size.

 

If I manage to remove brain-crushing clamping force with some shoebox therapy I'll consider this $60 very well spent. The prospect of these improving with burn-in blows my mind.

you don't even need the shoebox, the headband is made with a bendable metal part, you can adjust it more to your preference by bending. Just be careful not to bend the arms, them suckers are fragile.
