They don't qualify to be on the list IMO.

 

I have the D2000, and I have previously auditioned the D5000 and D7000. I feel that all 3 cans are good for delivering detailed bass that has nice sub-bass definition. Nevertheless, they are lacking in mid-bass quantity. On the other hand, the M-100 is far from a neutral can IMO - it is quite v-shaped, with a noticeable mid-bass hump and slightly extended treble. I don't subscribe to the belief that burning in cans will result in a drastic change in sound, and I believe the M-100's bass quantity isn't going to disappear.

 

You may want to ask the team at Stereo to provide you with an E11 or ZO2.3 when auditioning the M-100. Try to boost the bass and see if you like the sound then. Good luck!

just plugged in my odac and O2 for the first time. looks like this is the very best audio tweak for bigger, better bass:

proper amplification and a good dac!

 

maybe its just because im excited about getting new gear, perhaps its just some psychological bias, but i found myself turning the bass DOWN on the eq, i took it down from +10 db to +7. coming from my sub-par laptop dac and a cmoy, i find the bass alot more pronounced. ill give it a few weeks to get used to the sound and then try and a/b the O2 and cmoy, and then a/b with and without the odac to try and see if i can detect a difference, but for now, im very pleased.

 

i guess its worth mentioning im using dt 770 pro 250 ohm. these are said to improve greatly when paired with a good amp, the better the amp - the better the headphones. so far, seems like its true =]

 

p.s

i understand one can get some sort of switchbox, where you connect (for example) two amps, and then can switch between them instantly, for the sake of making a/b comparisons. do these things exist, and if so, are they affordable? what are they called?

The salesperson that told you that either doesn't have clue, is making stuff up or just flat out lying.  I have owned these for months and they have the same fantastic sound with powerful bass that they had out of the box. 

 

Regarding comfort, I had the same comfort issues at first.  They became much more comfortable after a few weeks and now I don't even notice they are on my head.

 

IMO,  THE M-100 IS THE BEST SOUNDING BASSHEAD-CALIBRE HEADPHONE AVAILABLE TODAY FOR UNDER $300.

i was just about set on getting them, until i saw the WS99 thread, and decided id wait to see if any comparisons come out. would you by any chance happen to own a pair yourself, and be willing to make a short comparison?

Sorry, but I am at least temporarily retired from new headphone purchases after trying about 50 in the past year and settling in contently with two:  V-Moda M-100 and Ultrasone Signature DJ.

That sales person must have it out for V-Moda... OR whatever info he has was from well before the release when it was almost expected that the M-100s would be more of a neutral flagship than the detailed bass monster they ended up being.

I for one wouldn't mind owning another set of headphones for objective comparisons with my M-100. So far all my comparisons have been from brief auditions or my IEMs.... And I'm easily suggestible lol

Except they're not UNDER $300, they're slightly over or right about. If you know where I can get it for less, do let me know!

He also mentioned they require over 600 hours of burn-in to shine, i think that's why people who audition them did not know the cans are not fully burned-in causing like ALL headfiers go bashing them. Here's the link: http://yklee118.blogspot.sg/2012/12/the-monster-beats-pro-live-update-review.html



LoL Can't Believe I'm quoting myself! But no one noticed my post! This guy said that beats pro is reference class!

If you look at the list of headphones that are considered part of the basshead club, the M-100 is nowhere near the bottom of the list.  I would actually place them in the top third.

Wait the denon dxxx series are lacking in Midbass???? Dang I gotta go try all of ten again.

The yklee118 post about the beats pro (which he calls beats professional) seems to intrigued me- Soundstage as spatial as the Ultrasone edition line, that's gotta be something!

Going back to stereo try all over again. I believe that burning in actually help, yklee118 burned in the pros for 600hrs++, I think that's why nobody heard their true sound

I don't wear glasses, so you may want to pose the question regarding comfort with glasses on the M-100 thread.

 

I wouldn't get too excited about the one impression that compares Beats PRO to Ultrasone Signature.  For most headphones, I look at collective reviews to determine some type of consensus, also reviews from reviewers where I have liked similar headphones so that I know we have similar taste/hear music similarly.  I periodically listen to the Beats PRO for comparison purposes at Best Buy, so if they do benefit from burn-in, they would have logged significant hours on their demo models that run non-stop based on their setup.  The Beats PRO has some seriously powerful bass, but the mids and highs just sound "rough" and unnatural to me.  Plus, they are the heaviest headphones I have ever worn.

The Beats Pros are way too heavy for me...
