post #1906 of 2733

i'll admit it's gotten a touch more comfortable.  Wilco's Being There sounded quite pristine on it during my break today (guitars actually had plenty of bite despite what i've been led to believe about these headphones).  i tried bending the cups inward/pinching the top sort of to make it conform to my head more and the cups to reach down farther but it's still a pretty tight fit even on the largest setting.  i'm guessing bending them flat/outwards would only help relieve the clamping force?  cause i don't think that's the problem; just my head's too "long".  i think its slowly starting to fit better though.  still wish it extended a little bigger in the first place.  isolation is a little better?  probably just imagining things.

 

i'll keep on trucking for a little while longer but if it doesn't get better than it is i may bid them adieu.

This.

 

I haven't seen this mentioned much but due to the shape of the ear pads, the headband needs to sit more forward on the top of my head.  It almost feels like it's too far forward but I'm used to my Denons sitting at the highest point on my head.  After a little bit of use you get used to it sitting more forward.  That angle difference should give you more room since it seems like you only need a couple extra millimeters.  Give that a try, it's way more comfy as well since it relieves the pressure point on the helix.

Planning on buying a pair of these in a few weeks, and as much as I enjoy the idea of customizing/personalizing the headphones, I find it a bit disappointing the shields have to be color-coordinated.

 

Or to be more precise, I can understand how they couldn't offer separately engraved shields (as they'd have to do two engravings), but it would be nice if you could order two different colored basic shields. Partly because I'd get a kick out of the multi-colored look (I'd love a red pair of V-80s with green pink and blue shields), but also because I very often get frustrated at that small period of time that I need to spend figuring out which side of my headphones is Left and Right before putting them on and having them sort of color-coded would make it a simple glance. Would love it!..Just wouldn't love it enough to pay $50 to order two sets of basic shields for the process, to not use two of them. Nor do I see how allowing you to pick one of each color would hurt them at all (as long as they're produced in bulk).

 

2 separate colored shields for $25, please! Just me? tongue_smile.gif

With the M80's single-sided cable entry, telling left from right is as easy as a simple glance: The side the cable comes out of is the left. Voila.

 

But I do understand that left/right recognition isn't your only reason for wanting two separate shield colors...

One of my favorite things about the M-80 and partly what swung me away from options like the Phiaton MS-400.  I figured out that I hated trying to figure out R from L with IEMs so I knew I wanted a portable with  a single side entry.

Send them an email, they might be able to do that if you ask. Can't hurt.

I asked. They rejected my request. Although in my case, I wanted them customized with artwork.

Yeah, I only figured getting two colored regular plates can't be much to ask for as it's not any extra effort (as far as I'm aware).

 

The benefit to colors over cord position is that I typically place very little attention to what side the cable's on. Or to be more precise, even if I know which side is which due to the cable's side, I still have to think about which side it is, colors make it immediate to notice.

You could always just get one pair of shields and make it black on one side, color on the other.

Shields aren't reversible...  I don't know what making it black on the inside will accomplish when it won't show while it's on the headphoens.

I'm pretty sure when he said sides, he meant "left/right" side not "inside/outside"?

I'm confused, this was the basis of my post...  

post #1918 of 2733

I think he meant get two pairs of shields, then you have two sets of one black one red?

Read the original quote below.  I've bolded one area that is major.
