Ah, true, it does come out to about even. The custom plates is a HUGE draw to me since you need to pay a lot more to get a custom set of HD25 1 IIs

And until the 26th, you get a 2m detachable cord, 1/4 adapter, and "faders" correct?

Still looking for a comparison picture with the ATH-M50s^^

If you could make the M50's headband length the smallest and the M80s the smallest too, that would be great (yea I have a small head lol)

That's correct. If you buy the m80 from the vmoda website, you get 3 cables. A normal straight one, a single button one and a 3 button one. Other places like Amazon or NewEgg that sell the m80 are only supposed to come with two cables; the straight and one button ones. Also, the m80 cables are detachable, not just the 2m one. You can use any standard 3.5mm cable in place of the ones that come in box, ranging to the ones that come with the beats to ones you find in a dollar store (though I'd never let anything from a dollar store into a pair of m80's.)

Faders aren't IEMs Faders are ear plugs designed to keep you from getting ear damage, you can use them at concerts etc. While using them they'll shut out background noise all the while allowing you to still carry on a conversation.

Ah, okay. I wasn't quite sure what they were, but iem's seemed like a good guess. Either way, the more that comes with the m80, the more value.

And for a while i thought everyone on this site was into classical, jazz, or 70's rock.

It would be a crime to ignore the other genres of music. Industrial, dubstep and hardcore rock all day long for me.

post #233 of 2753

true. it just seems that when people review headphones and amps they seem to use jazz, classical, alternative, or classic rock. none of which really suits my listening preferences. sure once in a while i like to listen to a good classical piece, but once in a long while. its nice to see a review i can relate to.

They most likely use those genres because it's a lot easier to hear a mistake, a missed note, etc. If they know how the track usually sounds and then they listen to it through a pair of headphones, they have a way to judge them. This is almost the opposite of other genre's such as industrial or post-hardcore. Try analytically listening to that.

Symphony and Metallica could give you the best of both worlds...except its live and i imagine a review of detail would go something like this "yes, in Fuel at 2:18 you can hear a fan's cell phone ring"

Haha, that's probably a good prediction.

Pretty sure they just throw them in the package.  At least that's what they did when I bought my LP2s.

Pretty sure that's what they do. If you're worried you won't get them, just call or email vmoda and ask.
