Martin Logan Mikros 90 On-Ear Headphones - Page 360

Yup, ensure that they are burned in for 100 hours, and wear them reversed, and you will hear what we're hearing. And when you are very happy with how they sound, then you can /really/ bitch and complain about the ergonomics/fit/comfort like I do lol! To be fair though, others don't seem to have the same issues, and can sustain a good seal and "sweet spot". They are the blessed ones!

Oh they're well burned in. Like I said, they're my sister's pair and she's had 'em for a while. Reversed they're certainly better, but... although I still have no qualms recommending them for people looking for a great pair in the $100 area, I don't think I'd say these are fighting anything up in the $250-300 range. Like I said before, these are priced perfectly.

I'm listening to the Princess Mononoke soundtrack by Joe Hisaishi on my iPhone 5 and Mikros 90. Total sonic bliss. These headphones amaze on a daily basis. :atsmile:

enjoy this too...

*slight bow...cracking sound.....ambulance*

 

I'm still working it, I had torn a pad while working so I might need to look into a new set or try to use the QC3's again. Are there any cheap supra-aural pads available?

Lors, good youtube review of the mt220's:

He compared them favourably to the Pandora Hope VI. Whaaa? I know, right!

 

Upsides: excellent SQ!

 

Downsides: no replaceable cable; the cable is too heavy and long for portable use, and is coiled at the end (yuck!)

 

But for home use, it sounds like something that I could be tempted to spend more money on lol!

u can just cut it at about 4ft...put in a male/female in betwix....n u can hit the street.

This MT220 has this BIG presentation, was listening to Queens, n Celine D earlier...

almost as if they were actual humansizedperson singing a few feet away...

and Chris Botti 's LIVE in BOSTON, that LIVE AIR ambience, shocked me somewhat.

i hav the pandora coming in this week, think it has a thicker sound...off my memory.

Mt220 is just so airy..easy...maybe it is becos of the 45mmdrivers..? not too small not too big to control.

 

You have the VI's coming in as well? Damn!

The difference in driver size has zero to do with how much control it has. Completely irrelevant.

 

I'm not sure I'd call the Pandoras "thick", rather "full". The music envelopes your ear, at any volume level.

The lows are definitely lacking, the mids and highs sound good, that's about it. I'd say they're an $80 headphone. The current price is exactly what they're worth. If I spent full price on these things I would have returned them immediately. 

 

They're definitely burned in, by the way. They're a pair I bought for my sister over a month ago that she's been using daily. 

Yup my thoughts exactly

Although I'd say they are equal to the M100 if not better on memory

How'sthe Yamaha MT220 compared to the NAD HP50?

post #5399 of 5822
Meh, I like 'em. They punch above retail price for me, but I'd have been disappointed at retail. In fact, I'm downright shocked at how bad the QC on $300 headphones is. Martin Logan have no one but themselves to blame for the crash-and-burn of their first portable audio releases if they think this level of variation is acceptable.

The NAD...is ok. :P

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

was a little left to right, little depth, to my ears when i auditioned them, once..twice...trice. ( tats y my VISA stayed in my pocket)

Quite comfy though, and portable. The sound: unoffending. Not bad for a portable. I just didnt feel like taking it home. 

 

I was expecting a neutral analytical "studio" monitor out of the Yamaha, i was living in the shadow of Sony z1000..

took a gamble and it turned out to be such a natural balanced lively BIG enveloping sounding can. Very enjoyable.
