Martin Logan Mikros 90 On-Ear Headphones - Page 24
Gear mentioned in this thread:
Hey anyone got a few extra sets of these on Black Friday when they were unloading them for $60??? If so can a gentle kind soul hook a brother up for the same price. Wanna see what THE HYPE is on these are all about, and if they live up to it. hoho
Well. "There goes the neighborhood." : )
If it makes some of you guys feel any better, with taxes and shipping they were around $70. Because of a $20 difference some of you guys are refusing to discover and enjoy one of the best headphones around?
Believe us, these headphones are worth their original asking price ($300). At $90 they are still one of the best headphone bargains around.

Those who paid the MSRP of $300 have nothing to regret. They can still boast of having gotten a rock solid "Bang-for-the-Buck" deal on an exceptional set of headphones. The Mikros 90 are WELL worth $300 in my esteem. I have spent 4x-5x more and gotten less than what these audio gems from Martin Logan have to offer.

Those legendary NewEgg "Shell-Shocker" deal days may be over, Ein Freund/Eine Freundin.

Tube rolling update:
1x premium Russian 6H8C and 2x Tung-Sol 6SN7GTB
Soundstage has opened up and there is more natural bloom across the frequencies.
Goodness! The Mikros 90 are exceptionally speedy and nimble with this combination.
Bass is quick, taut and solid. Midrange is clear and shapely. Treble is exactingly detailed Elements emerge out of their precisely anchored locations from an aiy, black background. Lee Ritenour's "24th Street Blues" engages every scintilla of my aural senses with the MLs.
My favorite configuration so far with these tubes and the Mikros 90.
Another surprising and satisfying listen.
