Martin Logan Mikros 90 On-Ear Headphones - Page 344

post #5146 of 6486

any portable phone that leaks beats the purpose, in my opinion... 

the design of the mikros 90 is their biggest flaw. if you get "aggressive" with the stretching they will become comfortable, but the i still wasnt a fan.

Well, I'll always be a fan due to their incredible sound quality.

 

Have you found any portable headphones that satisfy your requirements?

i wasnt saying the mikro leaked, just the k403 and others mentioned.

as good as the momentum on ear sounded, they leaked crazy. i thought they sounded better overall to the m90, but i didnt have them side by side. maybe someone here has had exp?

 

so far, as a semi portable, the onkyo hf300 are top notch. comfortable and bass diggs very deep. highs are not like the mikro though.

honestly, iems are best for privacy.

All good points! And I should look into the hf300's. Next on the hit list though are the dt1350's (to be evaluated alongside the t51p's).

I would try sticking the drivers in another pair of cups before tearing off the headband, tbh. Feeling along the headband, the aluminum tubes end quite abruptly, the funky chunky headband hides that. Pull it off and you might get a thinner headband, but you'll have these dorky tubes sticking out the sides.

I actually like the aesthetics of these. They're not on the level of the Momentums in that regard, but I think they've got an executive look to them in a similar vein. With some dedicated stretching before every listening, I've reached the point where I really don't have an issue with clamp or the non-donut pads. I briefly stuck S500 pads on them and really didn't like what that did to the sound, so sticking with stock.

I wouldn't use these for exercising, but for me the only thing fits that bill is IEMs anyway.

how is the comfort on these compared to bose OE, has anyone tried both? A friend of mine had those and I remember finding them quite comfortable and they have non-doughnut pads. I actually liked the flat pads, I thought they gave a more even pressure distribution than some of the on ear doughnuts.

I have the FC300s. Same headphone, but different cable. Really, really good balanced cans that handle all genres well. I highly recommend them. Watch for stealth sales on Amazon. Their price drops to $99 from time-to-time. Sometimes the HF300s drop to $129.

Just picked up the Beyerdynamic DT990/600 for an audition.

I have tried all the Beyer full-sized now, except the DT48 and DT770.

Liked the DT880/2003 version the best.

I happily use the k403's though when isolation isn't important (or is beneficial).

 

:beerchug:...It was an impulse buy for me and I'm glad I did, I love them. I agree, the akg's sound great across the spectrum and the signature sounds quite balanced as well. The sad thing is that these are severely underrated, I always see these going on sale here as people don't seem to be buying them, barely anyone knows about them! A damn shame. I use them as my exercise can's.

 

I have a Mikros 90 on the way, I can't wait! All the talk about it's clamping force is unsettling but I was ok with the k518's and they were notorious for their clamping force, so I'm hoping I won't have an issue with these.

Well, if it makes you feel any better, I like the clamping force so much that I bought two pairs :D

 

Seriously, you'll probably be fine. And they sounds awesome.
