Btw, where's Sfwalcer's impressions. C'mon already! :)

 

i was mentioning to a fren that this Mikros is like a shure940 done right...with BASSSSS. 

The bass is TEXTURED too..can almost pick out which part of the HIDE is used...lolz. ( its part of the HYPE.. more like skin from a bullock )

 

ABout glasses, i just slipped a pair of reading glasses on...

goodnews...the framestems just slippped right thru the space betw my face n the steel/aluminium spokes of the can. 

ie..your glass frame is sitting ON TOP of the cups..not inbetwix the pads.

 

Just put on QUEENS...Bohemian Rhapsody...clear cacophony :P

Cool. Then the last obstacle really is overall comfort. Would I be content with headphones that make my ears sore after an hour or so. Might not be the end of the world considering I have other comfy ones that I can switch to...

It was tight yesterday...and i wore it for ermmm 4 to 5 hours. straight thru..till bedtime.

Today, it felt better. My facehide had been conditioned by LCDs1350s etc.

Yours still supple?? 

 

Last obstacle is your wallet...IS IT LOADED with $bullets. Lets be honest...

if u have to hack out a few hours parttime at Macdonalds, get your butt there,

then hit the BUYBUTTON !!

So Lorspeaker, you've have (and have had) a lot of crazy good gear. Just to be sure, you are pretty impressed with the 90's, correct? Do you see yourself hanging onto them for a while (after the honeymoon phase)?

post #936 of 6488

ya i believe so, i have been looking for a pair that could play some classicals/soundtracks off my ipad when i am in town,

This Mikros has very clear drivers..good depth...textured bass..u just need to tweak the cables to get the perfect timbre.

 

I am listening to Copland's Fanfare now, straight off my McAir..this Mikros can put out all the whammm n slammmm

of the big timpanis, gongs...without running out of breath...ooooo here goes the climaxxx...arrrghhh...orgasmic.

 

 

i might take a look at mikros100 circumaurals... that should be some time in the future...i hope.

 

 

=================

The ancient cannon just exploded my skull on the opening number...

and i havent even amp-ed this baby yet..ommmmggg..where are my tube amps.

 

===========

Now go pull the trigger. :beyersmile:

post #939 of 6488

Initial impressions of these Martin Logans was WOW!!! COLOR ME IMPRESSED!!!

 

What immediately jumped out at me was the lushness and sweetness of the mids and along with the crazy nice extension of the treble. For anyone that has heard/ read-up on the ATH ES700s you will know that I along with many ES700s owners praise their sweet forward and lush mids to no end. Welp not only is the mids of these Logans exactly as lush as that of the ES700s but its treble is just as lush as well. :blink: SWEET BABY JESUS the mids and treble of these are soooo nice that even that hyperbole is an under statement!!! Excuse me while I compose myself, what I mean by sweet is that these Logans will get your head bobbing (contemplating)/ feet tapping (working out) due to all the nuances and micro details they render. Therefore not only are they easy on the wallet due to their low price but is beneficial for the well being of your mind, body and soul. :tongue_smile: These Logan is akin to something like a flour sifter in which meticulous renders all the finest aspects of the music right down to the smallest micro details and presents them to you in a ever so refined fashion yet without being overly dry, dull, lifeless, boring, or analytical.

 

Also for anyone that has owned/ heard the Beyer DT-250 you will know what I am talking about. The DT-250s have a really clear, sweet, easy on the ears non fatiguing sound that is really engaging albeit hard as hell to drive due to the 250 ohm impedance. You can literally listen to those DT-250 all day long without listen fatigue and the same could be said about these Logans, but even more so because they not only sound great even on low volumes but is MUCH MUCH easier to drive as well. Therefore not only do they have that amazing mid range lushness/ sweetness as those ES700s but is sweet sounding across the entire spectrum. It bests the Beyer DT-250s not only because these Logans sound even more 3D, is faster, along with bucket loads of crazy high resolution micro details with amazing clarity but they sound more realistic in their musical rendition to boot. The instrument and micro rendering on these Logans is so realistic sounding that it is surreal and that is no over statement. Bar none their realism is the best I heard from ALL my headphones as well as iems to date, which even bests that of the VSonic GR07 BEs natural/ organic presentation, but the GR07 BE is still better textured overall.

 

 

So here's the rub, the bass. Bass quantity is pretty similar to the ES700s, whereas it is kinda "soft" hitting/ sounding in the ES700s, the bass of these Logans is snappy, tight, and quick. Therefore it MIGHT sound anemic/ thin as vlenbo posted but it is really not that bad. In fact hip hop sounds amazing with these despite the lack of quantity. Even the sub bass (yes they do have sub bass presence) of these Logans extends pretty deep, but instead of the visceral throaty deep type that is felt not heard, when done right by good audiophile basshead iems/ cans why of course, they are more of a hard snap sounding type, similar to someone snapping their fingers really loud. Therefore, what it lacks in quantity is made up for in quality and the best way to put it is this.....

    

         Logan 90s bass visualized. Lean and mean, can kick yo' arse without notice

                                                         

vs.

 

  

 

Audiophile bass cans/iems. Boosted and roided up, muskals oh so sexcee, but for looks only. : P

So let me make this short and sweet. Are these worth every penny for the $90 price tag on them?

post #942 of 6488

Yes

I'd like to hear a comparison to the NADs and Ultrasone Pro 900 if possible, mate :)

I accidentally fed Bruce with a bundle of ultrasone extension spaghetti lying in my drawer,
And he became that hunk with the silly white hat biggrin.gif

Yes.  Worth every penny, for me, even at their MSRP.
