Nim,

PM me your shipping address.

 

A package could be arriving for you next week.  :smile_phones:

 

 

If you like them, pay me the $70 in mid-March.

 

 

If you don't, send them back [you cover return postage].

 

And this is just another reason why this is the coolest thread on Head-Fi...

@pataburd you could just take the rebate and lower the cost I owe you. Probably easier, and also would give you $20 of that sooner :)

Man, if the below things are the "other things", I am soooo in!

 

 

 

Well, maybe not epic lol.

 

I got the pads off, and managed to get the screws out. Then I saw how very short and very thin the wires are connecting the drivers to the cups. Not very much play. I realized that these mods are not as simple as I thought they would be - they require great care and attention and no bone-head moves. Otherwise the wires can easily be broken, resulting in despair and destruction. So I bailed and put it all back together (getting those screws aligned can be a bitch!) and managed to get the pads back on.

 

I will tackle this another day! When I have more time and patience. Damn, I wish I had a spare pair for modding!

Lol, I will try my best to not feel obligated to say that they are amazing. I will analyze the hell out of these and be completely honest.

Meng, I only have 1 pair. Go hard or go home.
For real though, if you turn the cup to its side, then you can put the driver plate flat on the table. 1 strip of dynamat in each cup, then a bit on the back of the driver enclosure. I should probably post a picture...

No.

That's not the way it works.

We give you a script which utilizes every word/phrase from the current MikrosHYPE Lexicon, and you just watch the teleprompter.

One little slip, and the Boys escort you into the backroom and properly educate you on how to review [read: HYPE] the Mikros 90.

Lol. You know, my review might just come off as just that--even if it is honest. That's what I will assume based on other peoples' impressions so far :P

Yeah, I just started on it a bit too late tonight. I'll get it done this weekend though for sure. This is the Lors look that I'm going for from this post (it's a bit more work to get the blue tac all around like that):

$68.99 with a $20 rebate for the Mikros 90.

Folks, this is the stuff that Legends are made of!!

 

THE LEGENDARY MARTIN LOGAN MIKROS 90.  [no exclamation point required, a'cuz I got one righ t'yeer inside my Modded Pair . . . heeheehee]

Honestly, I have no doubt that this is a bargain at this price--but that's not to say there aren't other good options at the same price as well (stratoKOSSter anyone?)

Has anyone actually heard one? I will compare these to the ath-m50 as well...and of course...the legendary HE-500 (grill mod, jergpads), modi, and Emotiva rig.
