Bass-ed on your firsthand experience of the Mikros 90, I presume?

It's really hard for me to make that call for you. The 90's will most likely have enough bass for you once the bass mods are done, and I`m sure you would enjoy theml. And they are easier to mod. And they probably won't be on sale for this price forever. 

 

But my hunch for you is to go for the statokossters first. It sounds like you want to go with them anyway. And I'm sure that they will be enjoyable and sound great and have ample bass for you. And they might be more comfortable.

 

Actually, just get both lol.

How about bass-ed on others' first hand experience with BOTH and graphs and countless reviews stating the bass roll off at 100hz and lower? Yeah.

Amazon deal for $79 cannot ship them to me :( , however for the $99 it adds another $30 shipping - so that's not deal-breaker anymore.

 

Newegg is for US only as far as I know?

 

 

@bhazar:

 

How would you compare Mikros 90 to your Pro 80?

The Mikros are better than the Pro 80. The Pro 80 extends deeper bass wise and is more comfortable, but the Mikros is better with everything else.

Lol I wish... But honestly I should contain my budget to one of the two, especially as a college student with already a full he-500 rig... I need to stop. Haha.

It would probably have to be through a third party in the US.

USPS First Class shipping with the Customs receipt marked "Gift".

PM me.

Give me your address, and maybe we can work something out.

Not sure about your Tariff schedule there, though.

When I run the frequency sweeps with the MLs, they are still pretty flat at 24hZ.

amazon. Tho maybe this is different after the bass mod? How am I supposed to know. I think I remember people saying the bass mod isn't necessarily all beneficial though.

If you read through this thread in its entirety--and I know it is on a Tolstoy-ian rate of expansion--you will see discussion about the apparently contradictory early reports on the Mikros 90.  

 

We have narrowed it down to:

(a) improper headphone placement 

(b) poor recordings/sources

(c) ambient noise about the audition kiosks.

In that order.

 

Unfortunate, because it gave most people the erroneous initial impression that the MLs weren't worth it.  Look at craigsters post on this thread.  His was indicative of the "early bad press" about the Mikros 90.

 

Anyone who has spent any serious, extended amount of time with the Mikros 90--even DoctorJazz--cannot say that the MLs are "bass-light".  After the bass mod, these can crush you in the low end but stay clean and deep like no other headphones I have owned.  Ask Maxx or Lors.

 

They are also very revealing of ANYTHING and EVERYTHING upstream...

This thread needs a table of contents.

hi Bananiq, pasting the link from my post in this thread pg 67: http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_74447_Martin-Logan-Mikros-90.html?utm_source=ebayenterprise&utm_medium=affiliate&utm_campaign=EEAN&source=ebayenterprise&publisherId=43737&clickId=854403766

They ship worldwide, now my tip is wait until NewEgg drops price to a sexy low (and its price is highly volatile so don't have to be buddhist patient), then use NewEgg's price as a Lower the Price argument on SonicElectronix so they match it. Enjoy

since OP is MIA, we really should have a separate thread, where we only post factual tips and keep discussion Burgundy Hype here. Say like  which all the links/info to ready made cables fit/work with Mikros,  which are the current mods,  what DIYers need and where to find, shops that sell it for cheapest/worldwide.
