I'm curious about the Mikros 90 too, but the more I read the more I get confused. Lots of conflicting opinions, and comfort seems to be a major issue for some too...am not sure if they'd be an upgrade for my current Aviators which have been a surprisingly excellent portable headphone...

They're pretty impressive for $60, i'll give them that. Still will keep my he-500 though no doubt lol, so no need for it.

Reading up on it, it seems to have the clamp of death. I can assume people with small noggins find it comfy and it seems people enjoy their sound...?

Completely possible, but there is certainly NO need for a second mikros discussion thread...when there is an already ridiculously hype filled one in existence.

The clamp is not bad at all once you stretch the headband. Just leave it stretched over something wide over night and itll be nice and easy on the ears in the morning.

It does have a strong clamp force, but I find the material the pads are made of pretty comfortable. I can wear them for about 3 hours, but more than that it starts to get uncomfortable for me. i've got one of those small noggins though :p

For me it was around that, maybe 4 hours straight.

Oh I wouldn't go near it. I wear a 7 5/8" hat. That would probably feel like medieval torture for me.

Got a Superlux 668B coming though, that's a bargain even at standard price. I'm hoping it's not hype. $50MSRP and named "Giant Killer"

Before I offend the Hype Gods of the Mikros 90.

Let me just say that the comfort of these cans were indeed very poor for us wearing glasses.

It was unbearable for me.

And overall, I wasn't particular impressed with the sound signature. Dynamics were sluggish. Lacked in speed and transients. Mid-bass hump. And transparency was below average. Where was this "soundstage" and balanced signature people raved about?

Just shows that you should always try something for yourself. 

I returned mine needless to say.

I wear roughly the same hat size, want me to let you know how bad the clamp is?
post #3613 of 11125
Sure but I'm not getting one. You might do a big noggin members who's looking at those a favor though.

I'm glad I got it for $37 two weeks ago... :L3000:

I did slightly better than your $37 for a new set.
