Another "just one more disc" evening with the Mikros 90 and PM-1.
The MLs are definitely more balanced across the board, with more "THERE" there across the frequency and dynamics spectra.
Finished with the last two movements of Tchaikovsky's 6th Symphony. The third movement is one "to die for". [I think I could listen to this symphony once a week and never tire of it.]
The PM-1 are exceptionally detailed and expressive, with finesse, albeit a bit emasculated compared with the Mikros 90.
Timpani strikes sounded more rounded and warm with the PM-1, with incredible mid-bass contour/detail. The Mikros 90 definitely go deeper, with more solidity/impact and lend greater ambient support to the overall hall acoustic.
Both headphones extract a lot of detail, with the PM-1 getting the edge with respect to subtle, inner detail.
The short of the long of it: Tchaikovsky's 6th came across equally enjoyably through both the Mikros 90 and the PM-1.
Add another aspect of the Mikros 90/PM-1 complementarity:
more "masculine" in delivery
more "feminine" in delivery
