How are you finding the initial comfort?

Regardless, after a year and a half on debating whether or not I should buy a pair, I finally have some black M80s.

They sound pretty damn good. Sound stage could be bigger as I'm use to open 'phones, but they're semi-closed so it's no biggie. Still have to formulate my opinion of them over the next couple of days, but the signature is sure winning me over.

I got them also for $84 also, i like the sound very much that i want to use them with my desktop also, they were initially for mobile purpose.

 

 

can someone post a link for a long audio cable, i would like to use this new M80 with my Desktop, looking maybe for 2 feet audio cord, i am afraid to buy the wrong audio M/M audio cord.

 

 

Thanks

It's just a standard 3.5mm plug on the M-80's end, so almost anything will work really... Unless you're trying to retain mic functionality at the desktop or something. Aren't the stock cables longer than two feet anyway? Monoprice.com has a nice variety of lengths/thickness etc.

Or you could just go straight to the source.

Well yeah, I just assumed he wanted something different or shorter/longer...

Their stock cables are pretty nice IMO, cloth sleeved isn't for everyone but the 45° plugs and separated mic/button capsules are perfect for mobile use. It's silly how many portable headphones ship with woefully inadequate cables that aren't even removable.

I use my M-80 a lot with a 4-6" cable that goes into a clip-on BT receiver, love the versatility of the removable cable.

So back then I said I didn't hear the difference between the vents being covered. I used tape and it was not quick enough for me to do an A/B  between open and closed. Using your fingers works too. So I was able to hear the difference. To me, vocals had slightly less lower-ness so it sounded crisper. It was also a smaller sound stage. It was not a big difference, but it was there.

I need something as good but longer, to use with the Desktop.

 

Do you think this cable will fit?

Either would work, Monoprice's might be cheaper even with shipping tho.

I bought a pair of M-80 truebloods on amazon recently, where I was impressed with the sound across multiple genres, I wasn't impressed with the excessive creaking of metal and loosening of the screws attached to my right cup. Would these be warning signs that my headphones coul break?

Loosening of the screws? The ones that hold the shields? I can't remember if there's any other visible screws... I've seen a couple people mention their cups squeaked a bit when turned but what you're describing sounds excessive.

One of the cups on mine clicks a bit when I turn it while it's not on my head but once they're on they feel very solid and I can't detect any creakyness.

Not the ones that hold the shields, sorry, the ones that attach the cups to the outer metal ends of the headband.

 

Should I return them and exchange for a new pair? Or should I go for the ATH m50s just in case this issue was caused by my head size?

I noticed creaking on the right earcup of my M-100 when I first got it. I popped the cup off the hinge and cleaned out the dust inside the hole and the creak went away. It's a little trickier popping off the cups on the V-80, but that could solve your problem.

Oh, I'm not the only one with a squeaky right cup?! O_o

My friend told me he got the M-80, but says the bass sounds a little distorted. Any thoughts?
