Martin Logan Mikros 90 On-Ear Headphones - Page 236

post #3526 of 6486

This Mikros is challenging indeed...

think i opened it up at least 15times, i realised i werent as smart/lucky as i hoped..hehe.

 

my unscientific attempts :

3bluetac on wall + felt at center

fullybluetac on wall +felt at center

fullybluetac on wall + blurtac on base

fullybluetac on wall  + bluetac on base + leather over bluetac on base

fullybluetac on wall + leather on base + bluetac on base removed

bluetac + leather + felt on leather

bluetac + leather + felt at lower cup

bluetac + leather + felt doublestacked at lowercup

bluetac + leather removed + felt at lowercup

bluetac + leather + felt at lower + upper cup

bluetac + leather + felt at lower + add felt next to first felt

bluetac + leather + felt lengthened + sidefelt removed

bluetac + leather + felt lengthened + framehole sealed

bluetac + leather + felt lengthened + framehole sealed + thinfoambelowdriver. ( LorsMikros )

 

plus a few reversals just to hear the difference from prior mods...

 

I think i put in enough variations to satisfy my own ears..to my taste...

this is a fantastic journey...

i recommend those with some time n patience to give this a go..

i share this mod, hoping to save u some pains..

u dun need to follow mine, its just one of a thousand ways to "THE SOUND"

 

u might come up with a superb improvedsounding Mikros..and take it to the next level..?!

(after some hearbreaks..n abandonment, but do TRY AGAIN !! )

What are you going to do?  Man up and take the $70 hit.   You could try to fix the issue, but its much easier to make it someone else's problem. 

 

The store will probably sell them as b-stock and the poor buyer (maybe a Headfier) who ends up buying them will get a damaged item.  He will probably return them and believe that Martin Logan makes crappy products.

The thing is, that "damaged item" is exactly what it is--damaged. The imbalance is what makes it sound damaged, not the modified "sound" at all. If this "mod" didn't turn out how everyone else's did, then how exactly could it NOT be defective?

^ ehhh but that's not the point here. No matter how they sounded initially, once you opened it and messed with it the seller/ manufacturer are no longer liable for anything.

 

Best for you to sell them off on the forums here tbh, cuz returning it back to the seller once you modded their inners is pretty shady.

 

But hey like what have been said numerous tymes, do whatcha' gotta do meng.

u bought a stock can, the stocksound didnt raise any strong alarm with u then,

else u would have...n done something about it..like talking about it n returning it.

 

u took the pleasure/risk of opening it... 

like changing the engine of a car :P

 

 

 u mod it the way u decided,

todate no one is quite clear what u did.. 

u only shared your remarks here n there..

how could it "turn out how everyone else did" ...?

 

anyway, i havent seen anyone following anyone todate..:P

everyone is responsible for his own action..n pain.

 

this mikros is a PAIN. sweetsweetPAIN :P

All I did was remove the stickers lol

I tried other things that I then took out as it never worked with that massive amount of bass imbalance.

 

I'm talking about the extreme imbalance issues in the bass after modding

 

Anyways, what's done is done. I'm not going to say any more when it really doesn't matter what I say or others say.

So you both were herping and then derping...

Smooth.....

 

 

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
In retrospect though...
 
I was herping and derping when I wasn't specific about my qualms with the mikros 90, so there's that!

EDIT: everyone here is defending claims, when basically it's all a misunderstanding. Please take the time to edit your messages before you finalize your post please, these posts have been nothing but the channel imbalance (or more accurately, bass imbalance). I am also guilty of this.

LOL?  Nothin' funny about this.  Kinda sucks that you can't admit that you made a mistake, and are now returning some phones to a reputable seller that were not defective until you messed with them.  You had a choice, you made it.  Live with it.

I'm not ****ting you though... they DID have an imbalance before it, it just wasn't nearly pronounced enough. Reputable? Debatable.

post #3536 of 6486

ok seriously, enough.

 

This thread was hilarious and pretty healthy in friendship.

 

Fight amongst yourselves in pms please.

 

 

Lorspeaker, amaze us with more mods if you will please! :D

hahaha! 

 

Why thank you wayne. :p

 

Did you get to fix the imbalanced bass by chance? you said that they are sounding awesome now, that is, you used your 'rip the tape at a good size' to balance the bass correct?
