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. 

Sounds good :)....I hope it plays along well with my elvish/vulcan ears XD

There's a good chance they will. Fwiw, but for all of my complaining, I've been listening to them all morning (ie 4 hours) without any problem. Go figure. So, don't worry yourself over my whining lol!

I also highly recommend the Onkyo ES-HF300 (or the standard cable FC300 version).  Very nice sound, solidly made, really comfortable, and even at the list price, a good value.  The ear cups are larger than most on ear...nearly over ear size.  The bass is very nice, and crisp...no muddiness.  These do not quite have the highs of the MIkros, but I find them to be more than adequate.  They approach, but don't quite match the Mikros for clarity.  Compared to the dt1350 and t51p (both very nice phones, for sure) I would rate the Onkyo's very close...at 1/2 the price of the Beyers...no contest.

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

Liked the DT880/2003 version the best.

 

You need to get a pair of K501's back i n the stable.

Damn, these Mikros just always sound so good. One of the things I love about them is that they NEVER sound congested. Incredibly tight and extended bass that never sounds boomy or impedes upon the mids. And the highs are so nice and detailed without being sibilant. Everything is so nice and clear. Sweet! Again, off of the c3/bh combo that really opens these things up and makes them sing :-)

Two quibbles I have with the Onkyos is a bit of pseudo reverb, kinda like the AKG 240. It works for some recordings, but not for others. If you are an 80's music fan the Onkyos are ideal. The other is there is a bit of a dip in the midrange. Lower range female singers like Utada Hikaru seem distant. I notice this cold, without just coming off using the Mikros to bias my auditory expectations. Still a very good headphone.

Sorry, I haven't; nor any of the Nakamichi's you were asking about a few days ago.

That is is how I would describe the Mikros as well. That is sooooo important for classical music. On the other side, when there are just a few instruments playing, say Uncle Ted Nugent's Stranglehold, the Mikros really let Ted's palm muting and pick technique shine.

 

Are there any Mikros fans that have tried the Harman Kardon CL and have opinions? Thanks.

Does anyone have the Mikros paired with an E18? I'm wondering if they pair well.

Sorry for going OT, but DT1350's in da house! I'll say this for them... potentially a bit uncomfy (hopefully to be addressed), but right out of the box, they sound phenomenal. I think that they will  be formidable beasts after some burn in.

I just got them! I plugged it into my Vali and the sound was screwed up, but sounded good when I had the mic held down. I then read a post of someone having this problem and a temporal fix is to only have the jack plugged in 70-80%. I did that and voila!, it's sounding as it should! I'm wondering if I should get another cable :S

 

Btw I find this headphone really comfortable!!!

 

Need to burn these babies in.

 

They already sound excellent though!
