Could you explain to me what the phrase, " the highs SHIMMER more with these cans more than those"? Someone was comparing the v moda m100s to some other more audiophilic cans.

generally shimmer may refer to the upper treble being more prominent than etc. it may also state good treble extension. 
in the case of the M100 it would generally mean that the audiophile cans have more prominent treble than the generally dark M100

I have to say that this had helped me a ton in figuring out how people described headphones to me when ever I ask questions. Than you fordgtlover for taking the time to put these all together for use noobies and audiophiles alike.

This thread is awesome and should probably be stickied in every audio-related subforum to help new members figure out what's being said.
