I don't think they will sell out that fast.  Wait a couple of days for his response...if he does not answer, I can buy them and send them to you.  Keep in mind that shipping to other countries costs around $60, so I don't know how much you will end up saving (Mikros costs around $70 + $60 = $130).

Oh, thanks for pointing that out! $135 isn't really that bad then. I think I'm gonna stick with the buying services here as I don't have a credit card to pay you but thanks! :)

 

Enough of this problem of mine sorry for the OT. So, anybody here listens to progressive/extreme metal (The Faceless, Blotted Science, Periphery, The HAARP Machine, Soilwork, etc.)? Thanks!

I mean look at their headphone in white.

 

It sold out! And it costs 3X the current price of the logies!

 

EDIT: well..elver proved me wrong with the word naked that is part of my syntax...

 

Curse you Elver! you deserve a whack!

Before:.....

 

 

The hole is just a wee bit smaller. I used the double sided tape and just punched a hole through with the small screwdrivers (before attaching it to the driver).

 

I think this is working very well for me. Still an awesome amount of sub-bass, but just keyed back enough such that I can retain my fillings :)

 

Question: the top picture is of the left driver. Looking down the rabbit hole, I don't see anything obscuring the hole. Below is my right driver where you can see that the hole is half obstructed. Anyone else notice that?

 

 

^ Great work there Masa' WAYNE, keep on fine tuning. :beerchug:

PRECISELY why it should be white. I said if they want more sales. ;) I never said I would buy it if it were white.

 

Though to be honest, brown is awesome too. I've seen the re700s in brown done right, the martin logans would make it two times better, but I never had a white headphone or earphone yet, so I can't say it's overrated myself. :P Oh wait, that's why I picked white! because it IS, lol.

 

tumblr_m5ty5pJgTu1r5g67po1_500.gifShe laughs at brown, look at her white doodle!

 

edit: yeah  yeah, she has brown hair, and she's in a brown interior, but it is not the point!

You see what these homboys see?!

 

They see the most beautifully crafted white pair of beyers, that help them become players!

 

You ain't got enough boy?

 

 

Well, here's something for you!

 

 

You forget that white was created first, by the pioneers dude!!

And the lord looked upon these two idiots and their previous postings. He then deemed this  post to be the most idiotic of them all...

Add some spice on them buns...

Very fun drumming from Taylor Hawkins, but not nearly the best for me personally. My problem with a lot of Rock drummers is they generally don't have much in the way of dynamics. It's all hard-hitting. Now don't get me wrong, my favourite genre is Alternative Rock.

 

Neil Peart will knock your socks off, but I can't say he's my favourite. Quite a hard-hitter. Still a  real treat to watch and listen to, though. This man has dedicated his life to percussion far and beyond most drummers - travelled around the world learning the different drumming sounds and techniques of different peoples. Just check this madman and his mad kit out. 

 

 

Now Jazz drummers know where dynamics are at. This is one of my favourite tracks for dynamic drumming by Joe Morello. Beautiful recording, too. You can hear the room it was recorded in. If you listen nice and carefully, you can occasionally hear him kind of humming while he plays. Get this one in higher quality of you can. \

 

 

Now for my favourite, it would be Benny Greb. His dynamics, experimentation, passion and skill just blows me away. This one sounds FANTASTIC on the Mikros, I must say. It is a long solo that is worth watching the entirety of, but if you're pressed for time watch from about 9:00.

My time is coming. Sometime tomorrow, I will officially be a part of the Mikros Hype Club. Thanks @pataburd :P

Apparently there is also a Sabre U2 dac, but I'm not familiar with it.

 

And here's the C&C BH:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/C-C-BH-Portable-Headphone-AMP-battery-AMP-CC-BH-NEW-/261172737290

 

The only downside with it is that it only gets a measly 80 hours per charge :)

 

Are there any scientifically proven biological differences between the C&C BH amp in the link above, and the C&C BH2 in the following link? 

 

http://www.amazon.com/BH2-Portable-Headphone-battery-Version/dp/B00A2QJSBO

 

I think I might be ordering one.

Neil Peart is on my YouTube favorite now....scintillating..smashing..v entertaining drumming.
Props to u sandwich smily_headphones1.gif
post #3103 of 6488

I think my main issue with Peart is his use of electronic triggers. They really kill the dynamics that come from acoustic drums. Also, I'm not sure why, maybe it's just the sound of the venue or his actual drumset, but it just sounds constricted to me. I dunno, hard to explain. He's amazing, no doubt about it, but not my cup of tea.

 

I like Benny's philosophy when it comes to drumming - I've watched his Language of Drumming DVDs even though I'm not a drummer. There's a nice video of him talking about and demonstrating his approach here. Insightful and funny guy.

What didn't you like about the Mikros that could be improved with a little modding?   Apparently, some of the lunatics...err...some of the modders have improved the bass, the soundstage and who knows what else.


The sound signature was a bit less warm than I'm used to with my HD650 and ESP/950, but maybe modding could fix that.

 

This thread moves far too fast for me to keep up, so sorry that I replied to something four pages back.
