MartinLogan has just introduced their Reference In-Ear Headphones that is said to be inspired by the sonic clarity and detail of their legendary electrostatic speakers. The new name for this in-ear headphones? It is known as the Mikros 70, where it is also touted to deliver a private MartinLogan listening room regardless of where you are. Offering superb ambient noise isolation that is said to preserve the subtle nuances of recorded sound, I guess only those who listen to it will be able to tell by their own ears whether it is worth the money invested on each pair.
Shipping at the end of this month onwards, the Mikros 70 will retail for $149.95 a pop, and will boast high quality materials, drivers, and an obsessive attention to detail. The body itself is made out of black anodized solid aluminum, where it has been sealed with metallic hyperblack end caps in order to isolate ambient noise. Not only that, it will also feature a 90-degree gold-plated plug, tangle-reducing cable slider, and durable black rubberized cord.
All purchases will come with a range of ear tips (3 sizes of bulb tips and 2 sizes of flange tips) to deliver a comfortable, snug fit that isolates up to 97.8% of ambient noise.
