They sound thicker, not as lean as the M500. Bass reduction is needed!

Now for JRock (some extremely complex, fast sounding stuff) they sound...meh. Hip hop, r&b,

They're on ear and they clamp a bit. They're uncomfortable to me at least.

I'm extremely sensitive to soundstage. Grados don't do it for me, and anything with below average soundstage won't be tolerated. I haven't listened to these long enough, but...I don't know.

More listening shall be done at once!

dammmm......u are giving me the shivers. :P

i need the measurements of your head... ha.

 

reading all the posts by pataburd n team, i have high hopes on this Mikros really...

heard the KEF /NAD /UE / and a few more...they sounded POP-ish to my ears,

so i didnt hit the BUY button despite the clamor on those threads.

Yeah dood i would burn them in with some bass heavy fast hip hop tracks or a good variety of beat heavy stuff on high volumes since everyone reports they improve with burn-in. Doesn't hurt a thang meng since it can only improve them or they stay sounding the same if not. haha

 

Yeppp agreed with you on their looks, these are pretty damn ugly but glad the pads are replaceable though. They are right??? :blink:

OK now!  These are getting better.  I took off the pads, some of the foam was out of place; I learned good positioning, and I applied EQ sparringly.  -4db to the bass (too much for me), +4db to treble, - a few db from 2khz-4hz, then a tiny bit off of 8khz.  Now we're talkin!  Detail retreival is suprisingly great also.

 

They now sound good (not as beastly as my ES FC300 but still good).  The soundstage is its main limit now.

 

Comfort is much less of an issue, since I adjusted  the clamping pressure through some crzy stretching.  Though it is still an issue.

 

The intimacy is great.

Funny, I couldn't find the power cord to my amp so I didn't try it.

 

Round Two, Here We Go!

They're easily removeable, not sure about them being replaceable.

LoL removable means replaceable cuz you can just put them back no??? :rolleyes:

 

Nice that these are sounding better after the internal foam readjustments you made, hope with further burn-in these will best those Onkyos and WS99s of yours. ;)

Hah.  I'm not so sure about that.  Those two are my favs right now, with the edge in the FC300's favor.

 

I have to say the bass is freakin fantastic.  Great extension.

It will get even better after 50 hours or so.

 

Soundstage is what it is...on par with most closed portables I've heard.

Until he lets them burn in, I'm taking everything he says right now with a grain of salt...

 

 

 

 

...if his  impressions remain the same after a couple of days we are taking him to the audiologist. :biggrin:

LOL!  Its not needed for all, but I dislike emphasized bass.  The upper mids are just emphasized now (only a slight bit of control loss now, and its only at high volumes, on certain voices), so I use EQ.
