Martin Logan Mikros 90 On-Ear Headphones - Page 306

No recessed mids on my pair either, if anything they are forward, definitely one the M90's best traits. The Momentum OE on the other hand is a bit V shaped in signature. While I subject the M90 to another 48hrs of burning I have been playing with the MOE and enjoying the change up, not sure but I might keep both.

The mids sound very dynamic and forward to my ears. Try playing with the jack, that's the only thing I can think about.

Which is to say you've been sticking random Schiit in the M90s until you found something you like? You can be honest :P.

Hey Guys/True Mikros HYPE Comrades,

Excerpted from the "Portables Shootout" thread, posted by poopsockk:

 

"i have the mikros 90s, and for the $55 they're selling at now they sound okay. It is not a bassy headphone, althought [sic] I haven't finished my burn-in... One thing for sure though, unlike what someone said on the thread, the Mikros 90's are most certaintly not worth their $300 MSRP." 

 

Oddly, on the Mikros 90 thread, he/she is quoted as saying:

 

"My pair just arrived today!   impressions: The clamp force is pretty tight, yeah. It's not uncomfortable though. I've been wearing mine for an hour or two already (but maybe I just have a small head? And maybe my head's built resistance from having v-moda m-80's on them, also). I can always feel the headphones there though.   I haven't burned them in yet, so i won't write anything about the sound... but its not like im really qualified to write about..."

 

The poop on the The Poop who, ironically, is not qualified to publish impressions on this thread but who--for apparently the same reason--is qualified to publish hooey on the Shootout thread.  

 

I have refuted The Poop on the Shootout thread, but am bothered by these lilly-livered tactics which seem all-too prevalent on more than a few of the other H-F threads.  [Yes. I am acting Mikrosi Defensor.]  

 

I never would have guessed that I would be returning anxiously to our thread--the "Mikros 90 Madhouse" thread--for its honestyintegrity and sanity: three qualities that tend to be conspicuosly lacking elsewhere. 

 

As for the coward, Poopsockk:

"String 'im up from the yardarm, Mateys . . . then we keelhull 'im!!!"

Aren't we all about joking and having fun? Do you now all of a sudden care about what others think? Maybe it's April's fools... completely justifyable given us being all about the fun

Will share the mod once I findtuned the innards ....:-)

The immediate value crisis is more important,
What's the true worth of anything to anybody
And does it matter to, or bother u?

In all honesty
My wish is that the price comes down to 30...:-):-)
Keep bashing...I m waiting.

No.  The really fun part is stringing someone like The Poop up to the yardarm and then keelhulling him.

Fun and joking are justifiable here, but not cowardice and mealy-mouthiness, which are despicable and have no place here.

My care has been from the very beginning; it has not arisen "all-of-a-sudden" like Brigadoon.

Yes master.

 

I will not question you again.

 

But really, his nick is poop, what did you expect?

Yet another example of someone completely misrepresenting the Mikros 90 sound signature.

 

Let's see:

(a) posting a "review" many many hours short of break-in,

(b) after removing the bass port stickers and not following any of the published mods,

(c) and on an allegedly--by his/her own words--"defective" pair.  

 

Credibility Rating = Zero [0.000000000].
