I'm using my iPad with the Mikros 90s.   They don't need an amp to sound incredible...but and amp will make them sound even better.

Better control, sound is generally "thicker", with more solid body and tighter bass.  Nothing sloppy or "warm and fuzzy" about this tube.  Again, excellent separation and rendering of space.  Nice dynamics.  (Paired with 2x Tung-Sol 6SN7GTB (tall bottle).)

 

Going for the Brimar CV-1988 or the RCA 5692 (brown base) later tonight, after I leave office.

 

The Mikros 90 are my "everywhere", "everything" definitive "go-to" headphones.    

 

Music:

Tammy Wynette: Anniversary: Twenty Years of Hits (Epic)--Oh! that sultry, southern voice!!  Nobody sings it like Tammy.  Duet with George Jones: "We're Gonna Hold On".  Wow!

Various Artists/The Easy Project: Loungecore Favorites (Sequel)

Muddy Waters: Best of (Chess)

The Yardbirds: Roger the Engineer/remastered Over Under Sideways Down w/(guitar genius) Jeff Beck (Repertoire)

Time for a few bars of The Beatles' Ringo Starr's "Honey Don't".  : )

Maybe I'll try that on my wife the next time she shares her agenda with me.

A trip to the doghouse is assured.  

But the Mikros 90 are there!!  :smile_phones:   Woof(er)!  Woof(er)!

Very True.  And the better the source, the proportionally better the MLs sound.  This is where the Mikros 90 out-distance the competitors, where their respective superiority becomes more and more evident.

  

(Maybe the FiiO RC MH1 will be in my mailbox when I get back!)  : )

 

Can't get myself out of the office until Tammy Wynette finishes playing.

DOUBLE DOUBLE YOUR PLEASURE!

Definitely keep us posted!!

Which of these is earmarked for the Black Market?  ;)  That'll teach those fence-straddlers and johnny-come-(too) latelies a lesson or two! 

 

Yardbirds: "Rack My Mind" and "Hot House of Omagarishid" (stereo)--Rockin' the Cerebrum!!!!  Get it on, Martin Logan!

 

My new slogan:

 

The Martin Logan Mikros 90: There's nuthin' "Reptilian" about 'em!

Isolation

 

Re700s = Mikros

 

Comfort

 

Re700 = Mikros

 

That's all I can say. The soundstaging and imaging will be next.
