I wish they could install my custom shields for me.

Gave my M-100 2 slight scratches while trying to remove the basic shields. frown.gif

Wow, I missed 600 posts in one week.  Hope it wasn't important, because there's no way I'm catching up - will have to start over from this point forward.

I'll have to disagree with you there Miceblue, the 'Club sound' is - for me at least - the result of massive speakers' sub-bass throbbing your chest and the synergy of kick and snare drums forcing you to shake yo groove thang. The throbbing is <100 Hz; the kick drum is 100-150Hz; the snare "warmth" or OOMPH which you get from 909s is around 200Hz and the snap from both of these is further up around 1-2.5kHz (depending on the sound of the drums). All of these the M-100s produces amazingly, better than any other headphones I've tried. I would say the club sound is the M-100's defining characteristic.

Miceblue could be thinking of the club sound of the 90's - not implying anything about his age or anything. But a few months ago attending a presentation by Sony, they showed a chart of how "bass" has been defined to lower and lower frequencies as we moved from the 80's -> 90's -> current as music becomes more electronically produced.

  • the Amperior has more treble energy, extension, and is definitely more forward, so it's probably more preferable for rock music
  • yowzees that sibilance is such a problem for me with the Amperior, not so with the M-100

Personally I much prefer the M-100 to the Amperior as I didn't like the Amperior upon my first listen to them, and again a few weeks later. The sibilance was really a detraction for my musical tastes.


Excellent comparison.  I would go as far as to say this the best concise comparison between M-100 and Amperior I have read to date.  Well done.

My extensive "80's Club Mix" compared to my "Current Hot Mix" Playlists on my Iphone would agree.

Got mine today, have been on my head for a few hours so far. I would like to know what this 'running in' process is, pink noise? Does it make a difference? and also now that a lot more people have them.. do you see a nice difference with an amp?

I haven't dared admit having 80's club mix on my iPhone, but I do have WHAM!, Modern Talking, Europe, and others which I'm far more ashamed to mention.

I think there are more one-hit wonders from the 80's than any other time in history.  The memories of the hair and clothes definitely detract from the music.  I still can't believe I wore two-tone jeans back in the day- one color in the front half, a different color in the back.  These were very popular in the US at that time.  However, back in my college days, I could rock the Miami Vice look- white linen pants and matching jacket with a turquiose button down, TMI?

Times have moved on somewhat :p, dance music is either highly progressive or extremely fickle depending on your point of view.

 

Someone dropped this in a club this other day:

 

C2C – Down The Road

 

Much confusion on my face.

Damn never noticed how sick some of the bass lines are for RHCP.

I think I may secretly be a bass head....
