. . . and our full IRE for your act of betrayal to the Mikros 90 HYPE cause!!!

 

Sure, you can try 'em BUT you BETTER NOT like 'em!!!

 

(Boy!  I should talk, given my present "infidelity" with the Oppo PM-1.)

 

But, then again, elvergun has always been a "difficult child"!

 

Truth be told: I almost did.

Yes.  

Filet mignon in the headphone department.  

Ramen noodles and hotdogs in all other departments.

We are shameless audiophiles all!

I'm starting to think that these are my portable end game. I really can't imagine doing much better with a setup then the X3, a card and these for 300 bucks. 

 

For people like me who sometimes associate clarity and detail with sterility and lack of musicality (cough, AKG), these dissuade of that notion. They're really remarkably musical.

 

Note that I listen to a lot of the music these are best for: classical, jazz and other non-bass heavy music.

Here!  Here!  :beerchug:

The Mikros 90 ARE my "portable endgame" and just about everything I could have hoped for in a single set of headphones.

 

MOD them, SJ, and the bass will plow you under--the MLs become even more mind-blowing in their subterranean capacity!  Rock and pop will rarely, if ever, sound better after that.  Even the traditionally non-bassy venues [classical and jazz as you mention] reap unforeseen benefits.

I thought you said your endgame portables would be the Mikros 100?

He is bored waiting for the Mikros100...

and the clamp on his head by the 8 Mikroses he has is killing whats left of his hair.

 

Meanwhile i just pulled the trigger on the HAVI B3 pro 1...

i sussspect it is a mikros in disguise, wait for my feedback in a week or two;s time.

My endgame FULL-SIZED CIRCUMAURALS would be the Martin Logan MAKROS 100!!!

 

Dang!  I wish Martin Logan would come out of their corporate funk and make the be-all-and-end(game)-all full-sized circumaurals we've all been a hankerin' fer.

 

Scott Gribble, put the Martin Logan production boys on notice!  The disgruntled peasants are gathering, murmuring--hoisting torches, clubs, hoes, pitchforks and other handheld farm implements.  

 

We are ready to march on The Square!!!

Only a passing fancy, Lors, spawned by the desparate illusion that there might be a portable out there half-as-good as the MIGHTY Mikros 90!

Rest assured, we will be waiting back at the ranch for you when your hopes are dashed and you come running back to the [modded] Mikros 90.

i havent picked up the mikros for two weeks , since the yamaha MT220 landed in my garage...

this yamaha is some circumaural...it is impressive in stock form, but went a gear up with microsuede pads

( tall spacious, balanced, upfront vocals, n yet deep...v interesting can. )

Mikros 90 [Stock Pair #3] are really giving the Oppo PM-1 a run for the money.

 

The two are very complementary in nearly every respect:

 

Mikros 90          PM-1

closed              open

supraaural        circumaural

visceral            delicate

candid              refined

forthright          reserved

dynamic           deliberate

treble bite        treble ease

midrange pop    midrange refinement    

bass impacting  bass sculpting

extroverted       introverted

 

Very different, representing two very different listening styles, but each also very enjoyable in their own right.

 

The Mikros 90, for me, are the better frequency-balanced overall.  The PM-1 are midrange-prominent, but still manage to convey a good balance.

Dynamically, the Mikros 90 are the winners.  They bring the music right THERE with an almost raw energy that grabs you.  The PM-1 are reserved but ultimately more detailed and refined than the MLs, drawing/luring the listener in.  I am fairly amazed at how detailed the PM-1 can be, because the Mikros 90 are themselves wonderfully detailed already.
