Martin Logan Mikros 90 On-Ear Headphones - Page 161

post #2401 of 5883

u guys know i have this ipad...first gen. its my ontheroadreference soundstation... 

loaded it with a few classicals, a few jazz, pops, some trance, some light operatic vocals.

All portables had to nail these songs...especially classicals.

 

when i auditioned the KEF...all genres passed, big sounding, tall airy..  all gud  cept classicals...

it cant keep up, sounded messsssssy. V comfy n stylish...Struggled but finally kept my credit card.

 

The Mikros never had this issue from day 1..the separation, clarity, soundstage..stunning.

Now i am just trying to push the sound envelope n take it out to space.

 

 

.the crazy thing is i forgotten how to reload/rotate more songs into my ipad..

getting old...how did i load those albums in the first place..scratching my head.

@Endcode, exactly right! I was able to bend it easily without busting it. No more shoe box :-)

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.

..... dat Logan 90s lovin' baby!!! :)

Little things :

Anyone tormented by the "irregular" shaped hole formed by the foam when it is seated in the padcover? 

And u could never get it to look like a circle?

U can try rotating the foam 90degrees and fit it into the cover...u will get a nice oval shape see top foto.

well...its OVAL...but its a REGULAR oval. :P

With the Mikros 90 for maybe 2 hours, I feel like it has better timber than the kefs, but some of the songs I've listened to sound a bit less natural because of the treble. Overall the kefs feel  a bit more natural and are smoother in general and mids seem a tiny bit more forward (quite a small difference), but the Mikros 90 has better bass control especially. The Mikros 90 soundstage also seems a bit more expansive. I'll update more if anybody's interested later on when I give the mikros 90s more burn in. Can't wait to see how these change!

^ Realized the same thang the 1st tyme i took the pads/ foam off/ out but never really bothered me..................... maybe it helps to not CONSTANTLY open them drivers/ pads and toss your junk in there, just saying. :tongue:

^ Just wait until you amp/ dac these suckas with dat great sauce, these don't feel lacking in bass whatsoever!!! :basshead:

 

Garbage in garbage out, but even with lackluster gears these Logans already sound amazing.

when i had the K550, i tot it had some kind of a peak in the treble that bothered me...and tried this :

added a ring of felt around the outer holes..and it did the trick.

 

u can experiment with the rings of holes on the top surface of the mikros driver..n giv it a listen. u dun have to unscrew the drivers,

i didnt see any outerholes beneath..just that ONE BASSSS HOLE. :P

Any chance you could explain some of the differences between the two in your experience? They are the two I have been thinking of (particularly as the pro80 is a ton easier to get a hold of)

Never said they were lacking bass though :P But yeah oddly enough the vali/modi combo sounds pretty good- there doesn't seem to be any major impedance mismatch issues and the noise/microphonics really don't cause any problems. Don't have any nice solid state amps at the moment but the random old ipod touch 2g + fiio e11 which I haven't touched in months doesn't sound half bad either lol.
