Probably decreases isolation though, huh?

I always have a hard time differentiating between headphone and brain burn in, but after about 40 hours of play, these sound more bass-y and midcentric than initially. Bass is fine now, but highs seem to be less sparkly.

 

Not sure if this is consistent with other peoples perceptions over time.

Many Mikros owners (most actually) have reported changes at around the 50 hour mark.

 

I'm not sure if it is brain burn in or actual burn-in, all I know is that I thought I heard a change...and I liked what I heard.

The added bass is welcome but the decreased treble not so much.

Shure940 is a superb can for trebleheads:-)

I received my two pairs yesterday! They sound pretty good right out of the box. A little bass light but good vocals and treble. Maybe a tiny big harsh sounding at times but that's probably a combination of the source (iPhone 5) and the music.

I think I'll hook them up to my old iPod this evening in the spare room and let them play until maybe Saturday for some break-in. Right now I'm very tempted to do the bass mod so that may happen this weekend as well. I'll decide after I let them break-in.

Interesting how many people find them bass light.. I thought they are quite bassy and warm...

I also agree that they can be harsh to my ears at times and I have burnt them in for quite a while now (over 100+ hrs)... Still quite harsh

I don't experience much sibilance. Ever since the QC3 pads.
post #4886 of 6488

enjoy the break ins...and the brain ins...its part of the gettingtoknowyouprocess. 

 

if u wanna do the mod, try one without breaking the sticker over the hole.

and gauge your appetite for moarbass.

It's just that some people like a lot of bass.  Nothing wrong with that...but they should be aware of their preferences.  Not every headphone in existence is going to cater to their needs.   Most experienced Headfiers ware aware of this, and they know how to express themselves...saying things like, "this model does not have enough bass for my tastes".

A lot of rock doesn't have a lot of bass or it gets over-powered by the guitars so it doesn't seem to have as much bass comparatively. I listen to a lot of Tool and Foo Fighters so I'd like a little more solid bass impact from the kick drum. Something like Beats are too loose and the vocals are too recessed. And something like the V-Moda M-100's is solid but just too pumped up. So I'm hoping these can be somewhere in between. The PSB's are still my favorite, but for the money I had to give these a try.

You can always mod the Mikros to give you a little more impact...but don't touch a thing until 200 hours of use.

Been burning them for just over 100+ hrs. What sound change will I be expecting?
