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.
In my opinion yes, the M-100's have really opened up for me in the past week or so and have turned into something completely different to what I recieved initially. I'm loving the sound, clarity, detail, lovely deep and detailed lows, and crystal clear highs.
I feel the bass rather than hear it now if that makes sense.
One thing I love about them is how you can hear every subtle sound an instrument is making, with all the timbre of the original instrument so you can really feel them.
Noticed this a lot in bass instruments. You can hear the buzzing on the frets, even really low down.
A song which really shows how good the bass really can be is Angel by Massive Attack. The bass at the start is really strong with a lot of detail, but yet, I got such a shock when the bass drum came in, and it goes even LOWER than the actual bass guitar! It's just perfect quite honestly.
Also, listen to some William Orbit :D
Best set by far I have tried, and yesterday, I even tried the Sennheiser Momentum's. Mids were more forward on them, but they lacked as much detail in the bottom end, and lost the detail in the higher mids/treble that make the M-100's so good to listen to.
I'm finding new tracks every day that balance so well on them.
Not to mention, the sound stage on the M-100's is tonnes better in width with better image seperation.
