I don't think the Mikros blows the Sennheisers out of the water, but the ML is better (IMO).  I would probably chose the DT1350 over the Mikros because the Beyer has some of the best bass in the business.  The M90 has a wider soundstage than the DT1350, so it's a close call. 

 

The Momentums are really comfortable -- I wish an over the ear Mikros existed. 

^ What is this blasphemy you speak of. There will only be ONE love and ONE Mikros, nothing else you herrrr???!!! :mad: Or else........

... let that be a warning to you unfaithful thought criminals!!! :D

Is that including the bass mods on the ML? or stock?

Anywho here is a quick report on the Pipeline ET-4 cable, haven't really listened to them THAT much yet, nor burned them in, but sonically i would say they are more like a fusion of the V-moda cable and the stock one, meaning that it is kinda slightly softer and more airy compared to the stock one, which is tighter and cleaner, punchier. The ET-4 seems to have higher resistance/ less receptive to EQs or something cuz when i put bass boost on my FiiO E17s normally when i set to 2 i can already hear a lot more bass with the stock cable, but even at 4 the bass isn't as prominent with the ET-4s. It also sounds less quick/ not as  engaging as the stock cable as well which kinda makes them sound a bit boring similar to the V-moda cable with their softer presentation.

 

The stock cable is still my favorite so far. FiiO is 2nd but just wish it was less grainy/ overly textured/ strident. ET-4s might get better with more burn-in as well as with other sources so the jury is still out on them, but for now they are my 3rd favorite followed by the more generic mainstream sound of the cheapo beats cable then the V-moda is last.

 

Might pick up the auvio cable next week. :popcorn:

Thought so. I'd assume with mods that would GREATLY change in favor of the ML :)

After a few more messing around...this is MY FAVORITE todate : ( if u have no time, just go for this. )

MikrosHearThruBass

Steps:

Bluetac all the walls
Leather the centre base ( see sonusbass mod as above)
Add this:
Place a 1/4 by 1/4 inch felt Right at the bottom of cup
(Not directly behind the driver)




Expect open airy, tight, well integrated,hear through bassss..:P

Idea comes from sandfilling speakerboxes...
(the leather adds a natural touch to the sound, without which the sound has a brittle tinge.)
(updated my original mods/ post )

Lors,

What is the difference if you center the felt versus placing it at the bottom?

I was going to try putting a circular piece of felt in the center of the leather immediately below the driver, but this post saves me the grief.

[This looks like the Gentleman-meets-Basshead hybrid Mod.]

I'll look to ordering that when redco finally gets their gold plated amphenol 1/8" connectors back in stock (or just go with the nickel plated one, shouldn't make a difference but doesn't look as nice xD). Lol I need opinions... OFC, SPC, or OCC copper man too many choices.

 

On the modding front, since Friday I've been experimenting around with these headphones. These mods actually remind me of the q701 mod because of the little circular thing you remove. My current set up has dynamat on the back of the cups and 2 layers of some random party streamer I had lying around covering the hole (I cut small squares and taped them behind to limit airflow). Without anything covering the hole it was way too bassy for me lol even on the verge of being boomy/bleeding into the midrange. I'm really enjoying this current set up; I'll post pictures later.

Fun process though just experimenting with what cover on the hole would give what sound effect... I think currently its slightly bassy but not obtrusive in songs that don't need the bass with good (maybe a tad too much) treble/extension, nice mids too. Seems a lot more engaging than my other headphones.

 

Now I just need to figure out where to get some leather xD

PM me.

I have a deerskin coat to slice and dice.

I am a bit giddy.. and I am Oafish and clumsy sometimes , oh ya back to the wire, I did accidentally break it, to aggressive of a putty job, but good news they are working perfect, so even if you have potatoes for fingers like me, its pretty easy, hardest part is aligning screws.. or getting the elastic little band out of the way of the screw holes.  I am listening to a better recording and the Bass seems just fine, so like always the MIkros is very source dependent, so far so good.  Sorry, I might have over reacted.. jumped to a conclusion.

I use a small LED flashlight to shine down the holes and ensure proper alignment before trying to re-engage the screws.

Live with it this way and see how I like it, will A/B with an un modded pair to try and judge how tunable my method is. One thing I noticed, and it might have some effect, is the tube that goes up into the headband is open to the cup, so it might work like a ported sub, it greatly increases the volume of air the chamber, and might add some loading to enhance the bass, I'm curious, was this an intended design, or a happy accident ? I hope it was design brilliance. Think of it too, as bass tube wrapped up each side of you skull, transmitting sub-bass notes through the headband and ear cup contact points. Or, I am just over thinking it.

My thoughts exactly.

elvergun,

GO TO YOUR ROOM!

And leave your Mikros 90 DT1350 with sfwalcer at the door.

 

 

[But then again, he didn't do his BASSSSSSSMODSSSSSSS, either.  SIGH!]
