if they have NOT given up...our headfi fanclub is kinda tiny...financially not feasible i guess. 

 

 

 

The Mikros 100 - with the new and improved neon green cable.   :L3000:

Very high extention, very clear, very good separation,

spacey hall-like quality, lotsa depth, vocals slightly recessed making me want to increase the volume.

Textured quality bass, not boated. Captivating ethereal sound, like a cross between a T1 and a LCD2...lolz.

 

Thus far, i like it for JAZZ, POP, TRANCE, AMBIENCE..VOCALs..

 

Classicals n SOUNDTRACK...think i still prefer the BIGBIG soundscape of the BIG CANs...AT THE MOMENT.

( i havent hook up my tube amps yet...listening thru the NFB10.32 dac-amp right this moment)

Easily beats the KEF/NAD/UE etc...the best ON EAR to my taste. 

I am biased...ON EARs are like BOOKSHELF speakers to me, though this is a very good ON EAR :P

unlikely i will sell the HE6.

The cable is too short for my home use..hmmmm.... 


Great analogy, with bookshelf speakers, done right they just sing, like the ML's

Perhaps if they had a better marketing crew (if they were featured on Head-Fi or something) the Mikros 90 wouldn't have been discontinued to begin with.  I'm not so sure ML will release another full sized can for a long time, if not ever.

Hey for you doods that want another cable option the V-Moda cable fits perfectly on these Logan. Just got them in yesterday and has them hooked into the Logans for "burn-in" just for funzies. :ksc75smile: Haven't listened to them with the V-Moda cable yet but will post impressions if the sound is different from the stock ones.

Oh and also anyone willing to cop these super el cheapo ones off of ebay??? They should fit fine as well.

Offered the mofo $4 but the lowest he would go was $4.70 so i didn't get it. :D

Thank you.


^ No problemo meng. This is a pretty good write-up on the V-Moda vs. the FiiO RC-MH1 cable. Both seem to fit these Logans but the V-Moda seems to be more neutral while the FiiO has more warmth??? Welp that was the gist i got outta' it anyways......

The V-Moda is much more versatile it seems as well design wise that is.

The Mikros 90 rendering of 3-D space is very natural and organic.  It seems to scale right to the specifications of the recording. By Pataburd.

 

That's what strikes me instantly within the first few minutes with the Mikros 90. Dire Straits- Money for nothing and Neil Young- Harvest Moon...WTF, on ear headphones with 3D image. I stopped and re played the two tracks and yes it sounded 3- D.

 

I do not want to be a Mikros 90 hoarder :wink_face: so I control my '"add to cart" finger right now. However, there is also a HK CL on sale for $99.00 down from $249.00 and there is not much reviews in @ HF but headfonia and other webs give it a positive reviews. Is it another diamond in the rough?

 

These Mikros 90s are classy gifts for V day or next Xmas....

 

So what's up with the HK CL @ $99.00 ?

I've read a couple of positive comments from the few members who bought a pair.

 

 

 

I don't know if they are at the same level as the Mikros 90, the DT1350, the B&W P7 or the Viso HP50.

 

Would you care to find out? :wink:

Yes but not by clicking on add-to-cart button on Amazon. :smile:

Let's cast lots to see who will click the "buy now" button.

But I am in no particular hurry.  Would rather put the $99 toward something that will bring more out of the Mikros 90!
