MartinLogan proudly announces the new Mikros 90 reference noise isolating on-ear headphones. Inspired by the sonic clarity and detail of their legendary electrostatic speakers and designed by MartinLogan's in-house team, the Mikros 90 deliver realism, richness and purity of sound that MartinLogan's discerning customers have come to expect. With outstanding comfort and superb ambient noise isolation preserving the subtle nuances of recorded sound, listening through the Mikros 90 is like having your own private MartinLogan listening room wherever you go.

MartinLogan focused on delivering outstanding reference quality sound with natural deep, extended bass and an open, revealing midrange, along with executive styling and minimalistic design. High quality materials, uniquely tuned drivers, and obsessive attention to detail are as much part of this new portable design as in our traditional loudspeakers. The Mikros 90 body is constructed from genuine leather and lightweight polished aluminum to provide years of deepening enjoyment. Soft replaceable ear pads provide a snug fit that isolates up to 92.05% of ambient noise and provide outstanding sound quality.

Features include a 90-degree gold-plated 3.5mm plug and a simple, yet durable, removable black rubberized cord that dampens and isolates noise often transmitted through contact and movement. A folding design and custom carrying case assure safe stowage when traveling.

Control At Your Fingertips

Mikros 90's in-line remote/microphone controls volume, play/pause, track selection, voice control, and allows seamless transitions between listening to music and phone calls on compatible Apple devices. The remote and microphone also function with a variety of smart phones, digital media players and similar devices* with a standard 3.5mm 4-conductor socket.

* Exact function of the remote will vary by make and model and MartinLogan cannot guarantee compatibility with specific brands or models.

The Mikros 90 is shipping at the end of November with an MSRP of $299.95 (US) each.

Ah, sorry. Inside joke.

On Martin Logan ESL loudspeakers, there is a common setup process using a flashlight and a second person, to make sure the speaker is lined up properly to the listening position.

Yeah OK, heard of that process...It didn't hit me.
At first I was thinking you referring that they might be the same head phones just different outer casing.
They do look similar.

Thanks
