It depends.  If you love the bass of the M80 you might not like the Mikros.   These two models are worlds apart - one is refined and analytical, the other one is a bass cannon created to rattle your brain.

 

You can always modify the Mikros to get sound closer to the M80 if you are a basshead.   Perhaps you will find out that you are not a basshead after all and you will be able to enjoy the Mikros in its stock form.

I don't know yet since I can't buy it yet.

 

However, reviews say that it's as good as the mikros, or some prefer it to the mikros, not really better than it. It has great detail that rivals the p5, don't know about the p7.

 

I saw it at a sale of $63 with shipping. If you can get it at that price, go for it! Or you can get it for $89 in amazon, still pretty good compared to the $150-200 price tag.

I'd say go get them! Rectangular or not, they remind me of the mikros in a good way, just 5mm bigger.

 

Beagle states that the harman kardon cl's mids are laid back, but other than that it's good. He still prefers it to the mikros, but it is a great buy for a different SQ.

Well, you were successful.  Just placed an order with Amazon.  There was a note stating that they ship from 1 to 4 weeks.  We'll see.  If I don't like them, I'll send them back.  "Refined and analytical" sold me.

Had em...not good enough for me to reconsider my earlier decision of returning them.  Good quality phones but not as comfortable, and nowhere near the clarity or detail of the Mikros.  Once you have the ML's you can't go back.

 

PS...Check out Oregon / Out of the Woods with your stock Mikros.  Rediscovering all my favorite music...born again.

Still makes me want to buy them. :p

 

Lots of ups and downs of the cls.

 

I know for sure that the clarity wont reach the mikros.

 

But the comfort is a 50/50 chance, and depending on the comfort, the SQ won't sound as good at times, so I wonder how it'll sound with me. 

 

Thanks for your input!

What price have you seen?  ShopHQ shows sold out.  Best price I've seen on Amazon is about $140...most other discount sites $90-$100.

best one I've seen is from ShopHQ, while it is sold out, they do restock at the same price, you just have to be ready....;)

 

From amazon, I've seen it go up to $87.00 from their third party sellers that have the amazon fulfillment. When it reaches $79.99 with those third party (and not amazon), I'm getting them.

 

They had it for $89.99 in amazon for a week or so. 

 

 

Observe!

Still waiting for it to reach 79.99...

I would probably give it another shot at $55 if Shop HQ gets it in stock.

Thanks.  No mods for me yet.  Postman lost Mikros #2.  Waiting for replacements.  No chance I am going to risk #1.  Haven't had my P5's on my head for more than 10 minutes in the past 3 weeks.

post #3809 of 6488

^ ehhh weren't those harmon kardon CL like $65 yesterday on amazon or something???

 

Remember seeing in on the deals thread or something.

Yikes! That guy didn't lose it, he stole it!

 

That deal of the mikros is too much for us to handle!!!!

 

On a serious note, I really hope you get them, forget the mods then, since it isn't really needed unless you want some fun in your mikros! :p

 

Speaking of which, what do you think of the p5s?
