Martin Logan Mikros 90 Review


Martin Logan has been exploring all sorts of new avenues lately. And so far, we've enjoyed what's come of these new ventures. A company that's built a reputation on a line of somewhat pricey electrostatic speakers, Martin Logan recently introduced a...

Stunningly accurate treble response ; Stylish and well built ; Tight bass with impressive extension

Excessive clamping force ; Lack of midrange warmth ; More expensive than competing models

Martin Logan successfully imports its signature approach to treble to the Mikros 90, and it is a treat for the ears.

MartinLogan Mikros 90 On-Ear Headphones


Not wanting to be left out of the lucrative headphone market, MartinLogan has released the noise isolating Mikros 90. Instead of going the exotic, high-end route of designing a pair of electrostatic headphones to mimic their famous loudspeakers,...

MartinLogan Mikros 90 Reference On-Ear Headphones Preview


At $300, the MartinLogan Mikros 90 Reference On-Ear Headphones are in a very popular "entry-level high-end" bracket. The MartinLogan name will turn heads but those heads have discerning ears.

The proof is in the pudding, so to speak, and while the Mikros 90s look great on paper, we're still unsure how they sound. At $300, they are in a very popular "entry-level high-end" bracket. At this price point, the MartinLogan name will certainly turn...

Not worth $20.00


None, I paid $130. over a year ago, and there is nothing special about these cans, there are many brands and models that are cheaper and perform better ; the only pro is that you can bend them to fit your head and also they have good workmanship and...

first they are tight and you can't keep them on for over 40 minutes and they start to hurt and soundwise I am not impressed

Nearly Good...


I DID figure out that the person who designed these must have REAR-FACING ears. If the headphones are REVERSED, L/R, then they actually fit very nicely, if a bit snugly. Of course, with L/R sound channels also reversed, that's a separate disaster. But,...

Great Sound ; Great Price ; Pause/Resume works with Android, which is about the best one can hope for in a "Not Designed for Android" world

Fit is TERRIBLE. The pads literally role forward off one's ears, no matter how carefully positioned. They simply won't maintain a proper position/seal if worn as intended. However, there's a potential work-around

Best Value in High End Audiophile Headphones


Highs are outstanding...They are really sweet and extended. Midrange and Lows are good. Decent soundstage. For $57 these are the best headphones out there. I have used with Audioquest Dragonfly and CA DacMagic and LittleDot III headphone amp

Comfort sucks big time. I couldn't wear more than 1 hour. They clamp my head and it really hurts

Good but not great


At MSRP ($300), these would be a bust, only suitable for those who value the name and the production quality over sound quality. At $70, these are one of the best buys out there. They are relatively portable, feel luxurious for the price, and sound...

These headphones definitely rate high on the bang for the buck scale (when purchased on sale). The quality is high, the fit and finish are solid and most of the plastic seems to be of high quality. Sound is good, but not spectacular (which is why I...

Like I mentioned above, the sound quality isn't all that. The bass is a bit weak, but is decently defined. Mids are clean but the highs are also lacking. My biggest complaint though is that they are a bit sluggish, they lack speed. I listen to mainly...

the best on the house


These so far are the best headphone that I own and also beat up my old boss headphones on sound quality and design. Thanks martin

No cons here, all smoth

Unimpressive. Not Recommended


Headphones ought to be simple to use. These are anything but. M-L COULD have made them universal, but chose to make life difficult for non-Apple owners. I'm very close to tossing them into a corner and forgetting about them. This experience has been...

Their appearance may impress your friends and relatives

WAY Overpriced, even at the Egg's recent Shell Shocker level ; Very tight on my head (which far as I know is ordinary in size). Impossible to use glasses with these due to clamping force. You could use these to glue-up carpentry projects. They'd...

Great...if they fit


A really great deal if they fit you.

Very clean sound, no modification from source that I could detect

Can feel tight on the ears, designed for a smaller head
