Martin Logan Mikros 90 On-Ear Headphones - Page 42
Gear mentioned in this thread:
I think the Mikros 90 are more detailed/resolving than the K70x. The MLs are also great for running with tubes. Mids on the Mikros 90 are clearer and better balanced IMHO. The K701 had an upper midrange/lower treble glare that ultimately lead to my relinquishing them. I think the Mikros 90 go deeper and are better resolved in the bass, too.
For me, it took about 200+ hours before the Mikros 90 settled down, whether attributed to actual burn-in or to my own psycho-acoustic perceptual adjustment.
Need to do an a/b: FiiO RC-MH1 v. Pipeline ET-4.
The Pipeline is definitely a few notches closer to high end than the stock cable, IMHO.
I'll order the FiiO with the kind permission/go-ahead of you all. Shall I? : )

So I should believe that the martins won't sound warm, thick, or wide in soundstage? (talking about the ws99). It will, however, sound more detailed and thicker than the a900x? Don't now about the esw9
They either do or don't as a function of production variances/tolerances. Mine just barely squeaked in (requiring a bit of a force-fit). PredatorZ had to whittle down the plug barrel to get his to fit. ML specs call for an input plug barrel diameter of 1/4 inch (6.5 mm).
