I know I've had some critical comments, but I don't think they're junk by any means. But likewise I don't think they're the second coming either. I think they're very good phones for sure, and handily displace my Mad Dog 3.0 orthos, which is a pretty nice feat considering the going $65-75 price! To me, they seem to represent the $200-300 bracket quite well.
On anther note, I picked up the 6' Auvio cable from Radioshack for all of $3!! I hate how stiff, and microphonic it is, and how it kinks.... but damn if it doesn't open up things a bit (which is good because my main beef with the Mikros is a touch of congestion with detailing). Now I have an email out to Brian with BTG Audio to see what the price would be for a silver cable... that would probably do some nice things to the sound sig.
^ Yeah i know was just saying that so haterz can get off our backs is alls, so yeppp they for me perform at the $200 and $300 levels as well sound wise but can be had for under $80 these days so it's really a no brainer buy, welp at least for me anyways now knowing how they truly perform. No one ever claimed that these were the 2nd coming if i remember correctly but it's that just many, myself included likes them over all the cans i have had before, which are my ATH ES700s, ATH WS99s, and Philips X1s. Those are all gone now and i have no regrets selling them off whatsoever. But for others that likes/ prefers them over flagships like the HE-6s, etc etc etc it's their personal choice and opinion so take it for what's worth and YMMV.
Thinking about getting that $3 auvio cable as well just for funzies despite they are so damn long, stiff and microphonic cuz it's so cheap. haha Sweet keep us updated on that custom cable if you do decide to take that route.
