Anyway, do you think the Headfonia reviewers were overly negative of the M-100 due in part to the massive hype surrounding them on HF? I just feel like the review is more suited for a low range basshead can than the M-100.

 

For example, look at Ed's own words -

Sound wise I find the M-100 a very difficult one to recommend. The hype for this headphone has been ridiculous - if you live on head-fi.org anyway - and perhaps that effected my ultimate opinion, but I have sat on this review for a while now and my thoughts are not shifting.


I do think the review was unfair based on my comparative listening experience.  I was doing some last minute shopping and they just opened a huge updated Apple store at the mall near me. I A/B'd about a dozen headphones again compared to the M-100 and I felt they were the best sounding headphones in the store.  I am not just talking about bass, but the entire range.  The only bassier headphone was the UE6000, but their bass is not as tight.

Some people (like myself) may be searching for an upgrade to the DT770 and havent found one yet, and IMO the M100 is a very worth while upgrade and worth the price difference IMO! 

fair enough man

Is the V-Moda LP the bassiest set of cans in the 100$ range?

Yeah I think so... Either those or XB500s

Oh, it depends on the version. The Bass heavy version is 80ohms and is over $200 on amazon.

Are they really as awful as lots of the reviews say they are? I've got the M50's and the bass doesn't have enough power even with my Fiio E11 set on EQ 2.

I personally have not heard them but for EDM they shouldnt be too bad. Maybe some others can chime in?

If you're talking about the crossfade than they are not bad for edm, hiphop, rap, dubstep, etc. When I had mine I used them all the time for those genre. I wouldn't recommend them for rock or classical or country or anything like that.

And yes, I agree with you about the M50, they lack bass, that's why I returned mine after a week.

It depends on your definition of awful.  If you just wants gobs of bass they are great for that.  If you care about detail, resolution and transparency for multi-genre listening, then yes, IMO, they are awful for that.

Do you guys still consider the V-moda m-100 as a bass head headphone?

Do you like bass music? You shall not be dispointed. Want a versatile can, look elsewhere. Personal, I love mine!

I certainly do but I don't know if I want to go for a basshead headphone with a little more all rounder capability or if I want the LP... I am sure that I could EQ them to get the sound I am looking for. How do they compare in size to the M50? How do they leak? I am stuck between the LP or the WS55. The LP is only another 5$ more.

The M-100 definitely qualifies as a basshead headphone, but with emphasis on quality over quantity.  However, don't think they aren't deep and powerful.  They are capable of powerful, deep, distortion-free bass with some amplification.
