Which guest reviewer are you referring to, Craigster? Is it Edd Noble? What's his story? confused.gif

 

The Headfonia review reads like a sad review of a $30 bass cannon headphone, and not an M-100. I'm sure the bass is strong, but not "monstrously powerful thumping bass". I'm not aware of the reviewer's agenda, but his take on the M-100 seems to be overtly negative.

I don't really know, just commenting on posts I have read from others regarding this issue and finding past posts on the M-100 thread has become like looking for a needle in a haystack.  All I can say for sure is that, while everyone is entitled to an opinion, the Headphonia review is the most inaccurate M-100 review I have read by far to the point that it doesn't even seem to characterize the same headphone I listen to every day.

I agree with this 100%

so I made a mistake of buying a pair of Beyer's DT 770 Pro (250 Ohms). I thought in the description it said 80 Ohms but that was not the case. I've never really had to amp headphones before, so I'm quite new to this. I used my house stereo surround sound amp to power the Dt 770's. They kinda sound quite bad as there is a very loud "hissing" noise (worse than my Beats Studios) and the bass is insanelyyyy disappointing. I am using the red, white, yellow RCA cables as for some reason the optical input cable doesn't work (I think I'm just noob and didn't adjust the right settings?). 

 

So my question is: can you use a house amp to power headphones? Do they sound like crap because I should buy a portal amp instead?

 

 

Thanks in advance guys

hiss? i dont actually know but maybe it is the amp... mine dont hiss at all, not from either of my portable amps or from my (really shi*y and really old) speaker amp...

as for disappointing bass, the dt770s arent the bass monsters youd think they are. i was disappointed at first as well, but:

1 - they are VERY bass capable. if you use an eq, you can get bass that kicks your head, and sub bass that crunches your brain, with no cliping or distortion

2 - the quality of bass is great. it extends deep and accurate, i havnt had any other cans, so of course, take my words with a grain of salt, but personally, after a while i grew to appreciate these cans and love them.

3 - what music do you listen to? alot of tracks just dont have any bass to speak of. even edm tracks often wont go deeper than 100hz on the bass, offering just a mid bass punch, with no actual detail or variety in the bass department.

How do the m100 beat out the 770/80? Do they dig as deep? What about distortion and soundstaging? I've been looking at getting the m100s but have read mixed reviews and realize they are new so they may be getting a lot of hype.

Not hype, the real deal.  No distortion, big soundstage, deep bass.

How would the M-100 sound with techno and electro house? Also do you use your M-100 for home listening?

Yes, and it seems the majority of reviews for the M-100 paint it in a generally positive light. The Headfonia reviewer on the other hand seemed to be finding reasons to criticize the headphone. As I mentioned earlier, his review was ostensibly negative and far too critical.

 

I'd like to read more of this reviewer's posts on HF. Do you happen to know his nick on the forms?

I am not 100% sure, but I believe it is swbf2cheater.

I have a vague feeling that he was one of the reviewers that always flipped his review samples on here, but not too sure.

ALSO dub step fans check out monster cat records. super bassy. 

I don't understand people's fascination with monstercat most of it sounds like wanna be skrillex's and nearly every song has about zero form; its just a random mess of sound.

Well if you listen to only hiphop/Rnb/dubstep then you will be disappointed with the DT770's. I would go for the m100's thoughhhhh they are 2x the price so you are paying a premium for them. But at least you won't be disaapointed like me

Hi Adamlr:

 

I tried all 3 house amps. There is a background hissing sound thats very loud. When I plug it into my laptop, iPhone, or iPod I don't here it. How are you hooking your house amp to the headphones??? I did it with an RCA (white, red, yellow cord) from the TV to my house amp then I plug my cans into the house amp. 

 

I only really listen to RnB/Hiphop/dubstep. I was comparing the DT770's to my Atrio MG7's. The Dt's really can't keep up. But to be fair I did just get the DT770's like 2 days ago and there's been only a few hours of burn in so the sound should get better. It's just that its the 250 OHMS ones and I have nothing to really drive them..

I listen to dubstep on the 770/80s and they pick up plenty of sub bass while offering a massive soundstage for a closed can. Do you really think the m100s can top them?

They're YouTube producers. Some songs are ok but if you want real bass heavy tunes let me introduce you to my friends Tempa, Deep Medi, Osiris and Chestplate! >smily_headphones1.gif
