I thought that meant his dialogue. I'll make it better next time.

 

But thank you for the tips, I will give it time to sound their best. I know though, as the re700s got me wondering about its sound first few hours of burn-in. I thought it was a dark headphone, but I was wrong. This may happen with the martins once I hear them.

^ Almost forgot to reply to this cuz was too busy trollin'. :tongue_smile: But i am glad that these Logans sounds NOTHING like ATHs offerings cuz all the iems/ cans i have heard from them so far, albeit not THAT many has sounded good yet it never conveyed to me that feeling of a truly high end/ Hi-fi product/ experience. 

 

They are AMAZING budget/ mid-fi gears esp. for their price but never was i totally enthralled nor mind completely blown by them so...... maybe that was why i went for these Logans despite i really wanted those AKG K545s more not only cuz of Father Pata Papas' hype but their unique/ elusive sound siggy as well, plus it doesn't hurt that they are dirt cheap. hoho :veryevil:

 

P.S. so a risk worth taking is what i am saying........ :)

I don't believe you'll say that the es700s re700s are part of the ath collection that didn't wow you, but...

 

How about the es700s?

What a huge typo, thanks for fixing me! :biggrin: I meant the re700s, they already kick the es700's cans after A/Bing them multiple times. All I need is the martins. I'll get them by friday, I didn't order it today, but I'm ordering them tomorrow with a one day shipping for all of us!

Ah!!!  The Master Troll has returned--or might be showing signs of returning--to The Fold!  Make sure he learns the secret handshake.

 

"unique/elusive". translation: "True to Source".  that's High FIDELITY, sf-Man!

Put the smoke-glass RCA 6SN7GT into the Bada last night.  (Was up listening to the Mikros 90 until past midnight--and my alarm goes off at 04:00.)

 

This tube brings a creamier texture and an extra measure of purity and body to the midrange.  This "tube effect" in concert with the midrange resolution, clarity and openness already inherent in the Mikros 90, made for captivating vocals.  Joe MacDonald's "Rock Coast Blues" was an emotional gold mine with the MLs, with every little tremble/modulation in his voice delicately but clearly resolved.  The Blues Breakers disc sounded surprising full, more rounded and warmer than what I  could remember from before.  By contrast, the (remastered) recording of Jethro Tull's "This Was" sounded a bit cold, flat and recessed in the studio room.  (This Was is my favorite JT album, with Mick Abrahams on lead guitar, and one of my all-time favorite R&B albums.)  Ronnie Foster's B3 Hammond solo on "4 on 6" (from Lee Ritenour's "Wes Bound") was completely arresting: nimble, tonally sophisticated and positively jumpin'!.

 

Tonight: the Brimar CV-1988!!!  BRING IT AWWN! Mister Martin Logan, BRING IT AWWN!

 

Did I happen to mention that I am of the opinion that the Mikros 90 are a superb set of headphones?  :smile_phones:

 

Music:

Paul McCartney: All the Best (Capitol)

Country Joe and the Fish: I Feel Like I'm Fixin' to Die (Vanguard)

John Mayal/Eric Clapton: Bluesbreakers (Deram)

Jethro Tull: This Was (Chrysalis)

Lee Ritenour: Wes Bound (GRP)

OK... But do you like em? I'm just making sure since you have yet to give us a clear opinion. I'm on to you!

Either way, im still interested in that RE700 (ah, another shootout including the usual suspects: MDR 1R,, MOMENTUM, WS99, ESW9A, KEF M500, Thinksound On1, Focal Spirit One, ES FC300/HF300, Martin Logan Mikros 90, RE700, maybe MDR 1R MK2, AKG K545, or Fidelio

Hey guys!

Who can chime in on this one--maybe again?

From my experience/comparison, the Mikros 90 uniformly betters the M500.  On the "sonic bang-for-the-buck" scale IMHO: MLs worth every penny at MSRP of $300.  KEFs worth maybe $99.  Paid $80 for my Mikros 90 and $250 for the M500.  Promptly sold the KEFs.

In all fairness, my outboard monitors are KEFs and my subwoofer is a Martin Logan.  :wink:

I wasn't asking for a comparison.  I have both!  Wasn't the Martin Logan $300 to start with?

 

Anyway, I was planning to make a shootout!

Great job guys, this headphone deserves some hype. I didn't get mine yet, but I just finished ordering it and will get it tomorrow. Expect some harsh impressions (harsh because I will not give them burn-in), but I will give them the chance as I did with the re700s. It better wow me the first time i hear it though. ;)
