by the 4th mod, u will know where the sweetspot for your taste will be...

its discovery time, just get IN.

 

also do open your drawers m see if there are any stray thrash u could creatively use.

seashells...chewing gums...plastercine...erazers... cottonbuds..

toss them in...see what happens.

 

^ Somehow i don't think you are joking. :tongue_smile:

The smaller OD version was sent to me by doctorjazz.  The 1st 4 were mailed out this morning to they're prospective owners, should arrive soon, and I will have doctorjazz's cable in the mail in the mornimng.

Used dynamat instead cause that's what I had lying around. Can definetly hear more power in the bass, but its still very nicely defined, as I feel the bass boost is in the lowest frequencies allowing the mikros to maintain its excellent PRaT. Listening to "Fotografia" by Yiruma, the mod gives a better sense of weight to the piano, but the articulation is still on point, with notes being able to soar and dive effortlessly. While the piano does seem meatier, it does sound like its in a larger room.
 

"Ivy" by I The Mighty, a very melodic hardcore band (more shouty than screaming, but more singing than either, it's pretty tasteful imo), it starts with a beautiful mash up of the drums and guitars, and with the mod everything sounds beautifully snappy and well defined, I can't get enough of this band to begin with, and the Mikros makes it a much more satisfying experience for me.

This mod also gives a much more grand sense of scale to large orchestra pieces. One worth mentioning would be "The Shadow of The Past" by composer Howard Shore. This song from the Lord of the Rings through this modded mikros sounds nothing short of epic. The sense of scale and emotion is chilling, making this song almost frightening to listen to in a dark room at night T_T

Still getting used to describing sound, but what I can say is that this mod is worthy of trying.

Great work Lors and Maxxx!

^ Pics or it didn't happen. :tongue:

^ Those hoes are a different story, different day. : P

 

Doesn't require opening the Pandora's Box Hole. Hence all my mod experiences in the pass has been mostly cosmetic. haha :biggrin: 

 

Looks like i have been outed. :bigsmile_face:

And if we don't like the sound? :(

 

Can we revert to normal as if nothing happened?!

 

That and this is the only pair of mikros I have at the moment, lol.

Vlenbo, easily reversible. And almost zero chance of breaking them. I'm a modding wimp as well, but these ones are a piece of cake. Grabbing some blue tac tomorrow...

Ditto. :P

 

I'll find some leather as well, thanks wayne. 

 

Does anyone here ever have the harman kardons? Do the mods work with it as well? If not, I'll be the first to find out once shophq restocks.

Weird that you should say that - there is definitely a disconnect here somewhere. Pada claims his mikros extend to 24Hz. I can tell you right now with a sinewave in my pro80s at 28hz and it is not even audible, if I really concentrate and stop typing I can hear the ever so slight base somewhere. The pro80s start tapering off in volume at around 34Hz to my ears - somewhere around 30-34 there is a significant difference and further down is just not audible at all. Sweeping between 30 and 27 is where it goes from audible to not audible here.

I'm starting to think mine are defective. My mikros produces no sound at 30hz and under, or it's so faint its inaudible. I almost wrote off this thread until you mentioned the Pro 80 cutoff, which I hear too.
