Martin Logan Mikros 90 On-Ear Headphones - Page 234

post #3496 of 5805

So have like 100 hours on the stock 90s, did the reverse pad mod but reversed it back (reversals galore). They sound fine, excellent in fact, out of my iPhone 5, but...I need to EQ them via Onkyo HF app, taking the bass up and the 8k freq down a small amount. With that, excellent with the HP out on the iPhone 5. Haven't plugged them into my C&C BH/iPod Classic combo yet. Excellent phones, design is a bit annoying, but on balance well worth the $69 I paid. Not replacing my X1s however, just prefer the Fidelios for several different reason, sound sig being just one.

 

Going to keep burning them in with the Auvio cable, another 100 hours, see if things sound any different. Also hard to power on the IP5, but enough volume without hitting max. Close though.

 

Just too lazy, concerned about modding. Guess I will miss that boat.

EQ down the 3.6khz region too. Peak there from what I heard.

Thanks. I just tried the mono trick, and then ab'ed both drivers to the same ear. Mine might still be slightly off balance here and there, but it's so slight that I'm not even sure. You probably just have bat ears relative to mine.

Yeah, I am extremely sensitive to it because it ends up bugging me a lot when I know it's there. It was a problem I had with the HE-500 and emotiva, which is why I issued a replacement for the emotiva so it wouldn't have that imbalance issue. Thank god I did.

Thx. Will check that out in 4-5 days after continuous play. Don't need them so wanted to get 200+ hours on them and then see where it all goes. They will be used around the house, second fiddle to my X1s really. So no rush to use them. I also have some CIEMs here and a couple of other favorite IEMs, mostly budget-fi after the CIEMs.

Still need a larger soundstage.  Do any of these pad mods increase the ss?

Lol I'm being serious though. The bass below 30hz before was more prominent in the left channel as well as the extreme peaks at around 3.6khz and i think it was 6ish khz.

Do yourself a favor and never remove that sticker. Never. Only after there is a mod that is widely accepted and explained should you consider it.
