With the bass port open, bass is noticeably increased in volume + more loose. Sort of blurred, more one-note

Sibilance interestingly seems more present... 
Mods would help but... think I'm going to revert to stock form

Good thing I read the caption...I initially thought you had finally gone mad and were experimenting with some Wheat Thins to see how they changed the sound. :tongue:

Sounds terrific on my stockMikros...

its like an inbetween of a thinleather n a hardfelt. 

The stockMikros sounded liberated, alot less congested in the uppermids,

there is this agility n give in the sound at the same time, v nice.

( i didnt violate the HOLE )

I confirmed it by listening to each side individually and also flipping the phones around, the sweep goes left to right. How would this effect listening to actual real music though? Because I'm not sure I would have noticed if I hadn't done sweep tests. And my ears aren't perfect in the first place, I seem to hear a tad bit better with my right ear than my left anyways.

So not sure what I should do. They're stock not modded. But if I return them to newegg for a replacement I'll probably lose my $20 rebate since by the time I ship them back and have new ones shipped to me, it might be past the deadline to send the rebate with UPC. If I process the rebate and get them replaced by ML instead, then I'm out the cost of shipping them to ML for replacement. So lose-lose situation unless I just keep them and live with it, or just return them for refund and be done with it. Decisions, decisions.
Welcome to my problem.

try some tests here...not sure if these help.

 

Ok thanks, I just retested with the tones on that page and yes confirmed what I was hearing with the youtube vids. There is an problem in the 5khz frequency range that causes the sweep tone to pan right and left. The right side spikes louder then rolls off which then causes the left side to sound louder.

Yours getting replaced by ML, but you have to pay out of pocket to ship back, right? And I think you said the inbalance didn't really bother you much when it was stock? Mine are stock and I don't plan on modding. I don't have golden ears so I didn't notice anything wrong when listening to music. I only noticed because I was having problem with another phone so I was running sweep tests on all my phones for comparison.

Why? Because it can be done of course! Also because my buddy Nick gave me some Twaron Angel Hair to play with. .2 grams per cup...

 

Still got the foam stuff on the driver (from one of Lors mods), and also the all important elastoplast fabric covering the hole:

 

 

Haven't had much chance to listen yet.

When i opened up the rightcup to mod..i actually placed a hardfelt on the reversed opposite side..mimic-king the circuitboard on the leftcup..
To try to even out the physical volume n physique of the two cups.
Seems to work..at least psychologically. My 2nd mikros seem to have a slight bias towards the left..v slight.

Used the Mikros for the first time on a flight...short one, only one hour to Phillie.  I was sitting over the wing, behind the engine...must be the noisiest spot on the plane.  They didn't fare too bad.  Normally I would use my Denon NC732 (which I don't believe are made any longer...shame, they are sweet).  I would say the Mikros did pretty well.  They isolate the engine noise much better than I would have expected, but do absolutely nothing to impair you from hearing the annoying announcements, unfortunately.  Used them straight out of my iPod Classic.  I don't know if they will replace my Denon's for air travel...but, then again, it would be nice to only have to pack one set of phones.  I can't bring myself to leave my Mikros at home.  Outside of a the NC feature, the Denon's can't touch the 90's.
