At the current selling price, these represent a good value. At the original retail price of $300, there are likely better choices when it comes to sound quality. Interesting style and design that will appeal to some. They certainly look distinctive and are well made.

Sound quality:
In general, I find the sound quality to be enjoyable. Some have complained about the bass. I find the bass adequate. Many headphones these days have exaggerated bass. Detail is good. Mids and highs are good. I don't have a lot to complain about the sound. No part of the frequency spectrum jumps out to me as wrong or distracting. I like all genres of music, but it's unforgivable if the voice is not reproduced well. The Mikros 90 does a respectable job with voice. I do not like the scooped mids and exaggerated bass and treble that a lot of headphones have these days. The Mikros 90 thankfully does not have a U shaped frequency response.

I can see how some people might find these a little on the tight side. If you have a big head, then they may exert too much pressure. I find them comfortable, but these are not all day wearing headphones.

Build quality:
Solid. Nicely packaged. I can see they were trying to go for the $300 price point. So at their current selling price of under $100, these represent better build and aesthetics than your typical $100 headphone.

I like these headphones. I can understand why some are more critical, but when current price is factored in, I don't think there's a whole lot to complain about. Not the reference quality ML may have been aiming for, but still a good set of headphones that doesn't do a whole lot wrong. If you like full, emphasized bass, these are probably not for you.

I think some of the negative reviews of this headphone are a bit off the mark. These headphones have a wonderfully detailed, accurate and rich sound. The treble is delicate and never harsh or strident sounding. The bass, while not pounding is detailed and has impact and definition. I did audition these at a local Best Buy, and from the listening station in the store, had initially dismissed them, especially in light of the retail price of $300. The sound was flat, unremarkable, and a bit congested, a sound signature I felt it shared with the B&W P5. However at the current selling price of under $80, it was worth a Black Friday whirl, and I anxiously waited for my MLs to arrive as I read through the few online reviews I could find.

I have auditioned at length many entry-and mid-level headphones, including the B&Ws, Beyerdynamics, AKG 550s, Shures, Grados, and V-Moda Crossfade 80- and 100s. I personally own Sennheiser HD580s and Momentums, Sony MDR-V7s, and a few others. I listen using an Aune X1 DAC/Amp (another nice bargain product) with high quality music files. I have been listening to the MLs everyday for a few weeks now, and they sing oh so sweetly. They have a nice sense of space and air, especially for a closed headphone, good noise isolation, and do not have any extraneous microphonics from the headband or cable. Perhaps I am lucky, but I find them very comfortable, although they do clamp more tightly than my Sennheisers, the headband stretches over time.

Bass is impactful, but not rumbling. Note changes at the low end are clean and detailed, bass lines are easy to follow and track, which is not easy with all headphones. The midrange is clear with nice sense of space. Vocals are recessed but natural. Treble is glorious without harshness.

These are really strange headphones. In an attempt to lure buyers into the ML sound, the company has tuned these phones to have perfectly clear, articulated treble that is non-fatiguing. This is hard to do, especially in a headphone, so kudos to ML for that.

However, the treble magic comes at the expense of bass, which is minimizied to an unnaturally sounding level. Even symphonic music sounds enervated and hollow, especially older ADD stuff. The new digital recording of Mahler's 9th by Dudamel and the LAPO sounded good enough, and the added detail in strings really made me spot new and interesting elements in Mahler's composition. But then I put on Levine's Brahms symphonies, and they sounded like the bass section was in a different auditorium. Pop and rock sounded even weirder. But acoustic guitar and piano pieces were incredible!

Moral of the story; unless you collect headphones, or listen to nothing but acoustic music, these are probably not going to be a good choice. As an alternative to the gobs of bass slathered all over most modern portable headphone tuning, these are a refreshing concept, but most popular music needs more bass than the Mikros 90s offer in order to sound even reasonably close to the recording artist's intent.

ML ruins even a qualified recommendation in my case by the fit issue. I have a large head, hat size L, and these barely fit. When crushed down on my ears, the small and oddly shaped driver pads create immense pressure, and the precarious balance of the drivers perched on my ears make them likely to shift into uncomfortable and / or worse sounding positions easily. Definitely not for the big headed.
