A tidbit of info from Innerfidelity (posted 10/2)
"V-Moda M-100 - Seems that Val has pushed the button on these, and has told me a pair will be showing up shortly. Been waiting quite a while for him to be happy with this new baby. My fingers are crossed."
Thanks for sharing. Great to see a mainstream media-outlet like Engadget focussing on SQ! This could push smartphone makers to focus a bit more on better sound from their next generation of smartphones.
Well that's a bit of a misconception then; there was never any official "release date" of this pre-order batch. I reckon people who pre-ordered (myself included) are fine with that and understood from the onset that we joined a pre-release phase. When the whole production process is finalized, no doubt V-moda will give an official release date.
Beats took a leaf out of V-moda's stylebook (not the durability, mind you), but forgot to add the sound quality that ought to accompany headphones in that price range. On that front, I don't think you can compare Beats and V-Moda at all.
