Remember these things:

- they do have awesome bass. I'm not sure how/why some people think they are bass light.

 

They may have awesome bass when amped, but unamped, I find the bass tone to be not as deep nor as much quantity as KEF M200 or Yamaha HPH-200

That's probably true. I always listen to them amped through my C&C BH or E12.

The HD25-Mikros looks good. I'm happy right now with the QC3 pad covers over the Mikros foam shifted 90deg. Definitely better than stock.

Hmmm.  The Mikros 90 is a bass cannon, unamped,  when compared to the Etymotic ER4P or the AKG K701.

Just use a dremel, a file or a knife.

But I like to share some usefull info...

I have been informed by a fellow modder a short time ago,
that "wool" is better than both fiberglass and cotton for sound properties in modding...

So I been looking around and came up with a great idea...
I have been cultivating some fresh white padding material that has very waterproof and insulating properties,
Very organic white "down"...

Take a look, see:


I will be shaving all this "sheeplike" white material off this week(!)

It is ready, due to what I would call, "natural knots" deep in the down material..

It will have excellent absorbtive properties!

So anyone want some, I should have enough material for about a hundred Mikros90..
Just PM me smily_headphones1.gif

I have lots of lamb's wool, if anyone wants to give that a shot.

Might add just a little around the inside rim of the earcup on the SPACEY mod [bass ports removed, a patch of chamois beneath a narrow strip of open cell foam at the bottom/center of each ear cup, small strip of Dynamat on the driver casing above the Rabbit Hole], but I like the SPACEY mod as-is already.

It also makes cellos sound Mich fuller and cello like, 2 Cellos songs now sound much batter as do more classical oriented cello pieces.

My one poor ear pad is almost 1/3 split open though so I hope the replacement pads come in soon.

Has anyone tried the pads from Vmoda M80, I also might have some velour HD25 pads kicking around.

I am almost tempted to transfer the drivers into my M80 LOL. Or even an over ear headphone like maybe a cheap over ear Sony like the V6 or something like that.

new housing would be ideal for these bad boys, open up the staging.

Anyway, a new cable is on its way. Great customer service experience.   

It's a 4-pole plug in a 3-pole socket.

Funny.

Ran my stock cable into my laptop.  Afterwards, it worked fine with my amp [although it had not worked before].

Lors,

BCL came yesterday.

 

Effortless cascades of detail, speed, explosive dynamics, broody well-controlled articulate bass.  

 

Gain set at +10.  Might try +18.

Great SS amp and a worthy companion for the Mikros 90!  :beerchug:

 

Works pretty well as a pre-amp, too.

 

Too bad the beta 22 did not fare as well with the Mikros 90.  I was hoping to a/b the beta and the BCL with the MLs.  As things stand, I can only do the a/b with the HFI-780.

 

Enjoying Men Without Hats: "Safety Dance" w/the [superceded] MikrosHypedBass mod, the Auvio cable and the office rig.  Bass is relentless, but ME LIKE!!

 

. . . now Devo: "Whip It".  . . . DVD-A

Removing the bass port stickers helps open up the staging.

With both of my modded pairs there is no sense of spatial confinement.

We are all waiting for Martin Logan to get back into the game with the "Mikros 100" full-sized, circumaural headphones!!!

Have a ball, papa !!!!:-)

FOTOsssss?!!!!

Ha...keep dreaming.   Martin Logan might have a group of talented engineers, but their marketing and\or management department seems to be clueless.
