Actually just ordered a pair of these locally for $120 brand new which i thought was a good price. Hopefully it can match my mikros 90's or dt1350s while improving on comfort.

Excellent! Looking forward to the comparison to both the 90's and 1350's :)

No spare coin with the AKG K812 on deck.

Might be selling both the beta 22 and the DT770/600 to recoup some coinage.

For a lot of people the left channel starts to go out, including me. Dont treat the like headphones with detachable cables because the tiny connectors they have are fragile.

I haven't used anything but my Mikros QC3 modded for like a month.

im a big fan of the fc300 as well.

Excuse the clutter on the table! :tongue_smile:

 

Well, the only response I got about a trade was cricket noises.  So, I have decided to sell instead.  Here is a link to the revised listing:

Am enjoying the Mikros 90 with my old RAM-modded Samsung DVD-HD841 and the cfcubed ß22.  Not the last word in resolution, but still very enjoyable.

The DT770/600 seeme to have smoothed out a little more with 150 hours.  Might do some a/b-ing tonight with the Mikros 90.

 

The AKG K812 should arrive by the weekend, or by next Monday due to July 4th.

How about soundstage?  I currently have the Exodus and am tempted to buy the MIkros just to try them out.

I suspect that you will find the Mikros to have a better overall SQ than the Exodus...the Mikros are at/near the top when it comes to clarity.  They are on-ears so sound stage may not be up to full size over-ear, or open phones...hard to say because this quality is very subjective...but for a small, closed, on-ear, portable...the sound stage is hard to beat with any comparably design phone.

Ah thank you.  I am relatively new, trying to develop an ear and get a variety of sound signatures to fit my mood at any given time.  So far I have the KSC75s, Exodus, Koss TBSE (DJ100s with detachable cord), Sony XB10, and an O2 amp.  I was interested in the Mikros for the soundstage and clarity.

I do not believe you will disappointed.  Enjoy.

definitely deeeep soundstage :P

For depth and clarity, the Mikros 90 are hard to beat.

The DT770/600 are too treble-dominant a listen for me, I guess.  They actually sound hard/"varnished" in the treble to me as well [as did the T1, but not as markedly].  After the DT880/2003 version--my all-time favorites, I have not warmed up to any of Beyers' subsequent offerings.  From the introduction of their "Premium" line and all-the-way forward the Beyers--at least for me--lost most-if-not-all of their listenability.  Instead of the seemingly unbounded HF and LF extension of the past, the new Beyers seem confined and even sheered off along the treble and bass reaches.

 

The DT880 Premium/250 ohm were possibly THE most disappointing headphones I ever auditioned.  The DT880 Premium/600 ohm sounded much better to me, yet also signally failed to recapture what their 2003 predecessors delivered in spades. 

 

Amping with the ß22 is probably not optimal either, as I have noted previously.  May wait until the Bada hybrid comes back from the shop, but if the DT770 happen to sell before that, then so be it.

 

I prefer the superior balance of the Mikros 90.  And after I grab for the PM-1, it's "all over" for the Beyers.

 

At least I can say that I listened all the way across the DT Premium 600 ohm line [770, 880 and 990].  End of chapter.
