The M-100 was tuned with the VAMP, so I would expect the VAMP to pair quite nicely with the M-100.


My prediction for Verza pricing:  $599

Very sexy headphones. I just realized that they're on backwards, but let's pretend that they're not.

Frequency response on a graph is one thing...my ears are another.  LOL...way more similar to the M80 as far as I'm concerned.  As I have some LP2s, some M80s and the M100s sitting in front of me right now.  Now that could be because of pads as you mentioned, it could be because of various states of burn in, or it could be I just have faulty ears, but the LP2 isn't in the same league sonically as the 80/100s which are much more similar than your graphs would suggest.  I'd bet on ears and pads.  :)

I'm so jealous you got a vamp for 180$! I wish that sale happened everyday. It's at 330$ now, no one would pay that for a portable amp, maybe a desktop amp. It was 500 a few weeks ago. SO I think they are slowly realizing the price is far too high lol. Hopefully Verza is affordable, if not I'll get Fiio E12, which releases right before Verza :0

 

Edit: Scratch that. I'm not jealous xD! I don't have an iPhone 4/4S to use Vamp with :P

Well if the VERZA is anything like the VAMP, it's a DAC and amp. The E12 is just an amp. From a functionality perspective, the VERZA will be more versatile than the E12.

But yes I agree, hopefully the VERZA is affordable....$500 for a phone DAC/amp sounds ridiculous to me and my wallet since it's more expensive than any headphone I own.

Isn't the Verza just a modified GoDap? What will the differences be if so?

For my M-100, at least, every area of the bass is weaker. Kicks are stronger because the M-80 has a mid-bass hump. But the very low oscillating tone on Skrillex's Kyoto is weak on the M-100. That low tone is definitely in the sub-bass region. I asked my cousin to A/B my M-100 and my M-80 and he agrees the M-80 has more bass, though the M-100 are more comfortable.

How is the hiss/background noise out of the VAMP on the m100?

I don't know anything about the GoDap...sorry.

Logo turned out great :)

Mine left the LA sort facility on 13th, no updates since then.. When can I expect them :(

post #10843 of 20809

Ok I am really happy with my M100, beside the comfort which Im hoping my ears will get use to. One issue that im having though is that when I connect them to the computers at work and my external sound card on my computer the sound quality becomes so bad, and there is no bass. However on my iphone and my laptop they sound normal (good sound quality). Is the reason for this because the computers at work and my external sound card dont have enough power to power them? I found it weird because I thought the M100 was ment to be easy to drive, is anyone else having this problem?

Yeah, chances are the computers at work have basic soundcards so not much power and your external being USB powered most likely will be the same.

I reckon you should invest in an amp.

 

Parcelforce since I paid duty went to 'delivery scheduled'. Still hasn't moved today... I want them today dammit!!

Your best bet will be the AudioQuest DragonFly.  I know it is expensive, but it sounds good and you will never have to worry about sound quality from any computer.
