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.

I am new here in Head-Fi and I have been getting lot of information/help from you guys.

I am not an expert, but I know when I listen to something-I rate my listening capabilities above average.

The best Audio experience I had was many years ago using in-ear earphones ('aiwa' portable cassette player and probably the same brand earphones). The music sounded like they were originated inside the brain - or rather different parts of the brain. As if ears were not doing the job. The experience was very pleasant and comfortable. I think its the presentation (please correct me if I am wrong) of audio that plays the part here.

Can anyone guide me through this?

 

You guys are awesome! Lucky to be here.
