Conclusion: Martin Logan successfully imports its signature approach to treble to the Mikros 90, and it is a treat for the ears. But the overall sonic character here is almost surgical in its precision. As such, these headphones don’t impart the sort of warm and fuzzy feeling we think many listeners appreciate.
Summary: Bass: solid, balanced and extended with excellent pitch. Can be Stygian and prodigious with the right recordings. May lack mid-bass warmth/emphasis for some listeners.
Midrange: open, clear, coherent, tonally saturated and complex. Vocals are rendered with breath-taking realism.
Pros: Currently very affordable and incredibly sonically poised

When I have seen these headphones for the first time they got my attention with their looks. They have a very nice design and a stylish and sturdy build quality.
Pros: Excellent treble, good transient response, nicely detailed on higher mids and treble, good instrument separation & imaging, transparency
Cons: A little shy on the bass, price, hard to get a good seal sometimes
Summary: Everything But the Sound
The observations were made over about 3 months and hundreds of hours of listening. Amping helps, the QC3 pleather over Mikros foam mod explained later I feel is almost essential.
Presentation definitely holds some importance.
Pros: Great detail, scales well, built well, extremely portable
Cons: Look... OK, fit is finicky, need a ton of burn in, needs different pads imo, kind of uncomfortable
