MartinLogan Mikros 90 Refrence On-Ear Headphones, Black
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Amazing sound, meh build quality. 02/13/2014

This review is from: MartinLogan Mikros 90 Refrence On-Ear Headphones, Black

Pros: - Very detailed and accurate sound.
- Surprising bass extension (from some reviews i have read)

Cons: - Suspect build quality.
- Cabling could be better.

Other Thoughts: Make no mistake, these headphones present a very accurate, clean and open sound. Very high quality drivers are evident. For the price, the sound is top quality, but the build quality prevented me from giving these a 5 star rating. Just handling them made me question their durability. I ended up always handling them with kid gloves. Even so, the ear pads started to show some unraveling in the stitching within about 1 month (the ear pads ARE replaceable). They can be had currently on newegg for 80$. At this price, I would recommend them very highly. Handle them with care, and they will surely give one many hours of listening pleasure....

Polk Audio Monitor70 Series II Floorstanding Loudspeaker (Black) Single
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Cheap! I paid 340$ for the pair on a Christmas deal.
- Excellent soundstage. Nice and wide.
- Good imaging for the price.
- Nice tight bass
- Small footprint
- Easy to drive... very efficient.

Cons: -Soundstage depth and imaging somewhat compressed.
- Too cheap on the sale. Last thing I needed was another set of speakers but for these Polk's, I didn't regret the purchase

Other Thoughts: My current stereo setup is dedicated for just listening to music... without the surround sound aspect which doesnt interest me. I drive a vintage set of Infinity Kappa 8's (they sound amazing) bi-amped with a pair of Emotiva XPA-2 amplifiers. I switch the Kappa's out with a pair of Jamo Concert vII's that always impress. I picked up the Polk's on the sale interested to see how they would compare. Needless to say I was very impressed. The Kappa's and the Jamo's are 2-3000$ speakers and, while the Polks cant match them, for the price I was very surprised. Bass was tight, Soundstage wide, with acceptable imaging. At higher sound levels, the speakers started to show some weakness and started to compress the soundstage and imaging. All in all, very impressed with such sound at such a price!
