Even more out of control bass... tongue.gif
post #3707 of 4413

So then the M-80 has the least bass, while the LP has the most and LP2 is inbetween? How much/heavy is the bass on the M80?

post #3708 of 4413
The m-80's is above neutral but it's pretty tight and punchy, doesn't overpower the mids.

How about the m100? How are those? 

 

My only worry I have with the M80 are they could be a bit on the larger size for my taste. .

There is a giant thread on the M100's

The M-100 are larger if you're alluding to physical size... The M-80 are actually remarkably small, even by on-ear standards. LP/LP2 are same size as the M-100 only they don't collapse.

Is there like pics comparing the M-80 to others in it's class and price range? 

post #3713 of 4413


Here they are next to Senn HD25-1 ii and Beyer DT 1350... Radio Shack usually has a display model out if you wanna check them out in person. The cups are rather small, the hexagonal shape helps keep them compact. I can post a pic next to MEElec HT-21 if you're familiar with those (they're smaller).

Thank you for that pic, can you post like a side view comparison if you have any? 

post #3715 of 4413

The M80's cups are tiny, making even the diminutive HD25 and T50p/DT1350 look a bit bulky by comparison.

So I can got pretty much to any Radioshack and try these on? 

post #3717 of 4413
Should be able to, yeah, there's three near me and they all have it out for demo... Just bring a source, they're not hooked up to anything. They'll typically have some Skullcandies and maybe an Audio Technica NC set or some Beats out too, from what I've seen around here anyway.

I went to the Rat Shack to try them out several times before eventually ordering them on Amazon. tongue.gif ($130-160 vs $230, you lose RS) Microsoft stores carry them too btw, can't remember if the one that opened here recently had them out to try, but they did have some demo headphones.

They won't let you try them, but they do have a 30-day return policy.

Huh, that'd weird, your local Radio Shack doesn't have a headphone demo section?
post #3720 of 4413

So, now I am not sure if I should go to RS or MS store to try them out, or will I be out of luck at both? I have two Radio shacks near me(and about a mile away from each other too) so I could try both, but I could be out of luck at both.
