Oh man, with the LP/LP2 pads, I'm really loving how much more open and balanced-sounding the M-100 is.

I can enjoy Vanessa-Mae's Choreography much more with these pads over the stock ones. As a quick analogy, for this album with the stock M-100 pads, it sounds like the room is a small hallway; with the LP/LP2 pads it sounds like a large room.

 

By far my favourite track in the album (for some reason it reminds me of Final Fantasy Tactics A2 music):

So you are enjoying more music with them now Miceblue?

Are the XL pads Val is releasing, similar to what the LP/LP2 pads are?

Confused right now.

^ I'm pretty sure that's the case, but the'll be 'tuned' more for the M-100

I'm REALLY looking forward to these XL pads. I don't like that I almost *need* gauze in my $300 headphones to make it sound good, so I'm really rooting for these XL pads whenever they're available. They're still in the final R&D phases I seem to recall so I'm sure it'll be a few months still.

I've gone ahead and ordered these in Matte black from Amazon, must say i'm quite excited popcorn.gif i've got the perfect pair of cans to watch blu rays movies on my widescreen in the Sennhesier 558's and for the past 18 months i've been looking for a quality set for use with my laptop and phone, this will be the 4th (and final I hope) set i've purchased in the last two months. Went from the WeSC Chambers Premium by Rza which sounded decent but were horribly uncomfortable to the Sol Republic Tracks HD which had a muddy bass and were probably the most overrated headphones i've tried and just recently the Monster Vektr Diesels were the cans of choice and I must admit they produced some decent sound but were lacking in other areas (build quality was aweful) considered the P5's the Amperior's and the Momentum's but I settled for the M100's so I guess there's nothing to do but impatiently wait.

 

Just a question to those of you who are in the UK and ordered from Amazon, which delivery method did you choose and how long did it take? Thanks.

How balanced are they now?? Does the bass still get in the way of the instruments, and are the mids more clearer?

When will the BoomPro mic be available?

No one knows yet, but Val said they're making some improvements over the ones that have been released with the VTF-100 batch.

They are definitely more balanced. The bass isn't as obtrusive as with the stock earpads and I find the midrange to be clearer as a result of it being more forward and more spaced apart from other sounds.

I haven't modded mine, but am I the only one who finds stuffing paper towels into $300 headphones to get the best sound odd?

 

I like the M100, but am not in love with them and still prefer my Momentums overall, though honestly I don't listen to much of the music these were probably designed for.

In case this information is useful to anyone, V-Moda refuses to refund a purchase made through Amazon. I was under the impression that the test-drive guarantee applies to all verified retailers, but apparently not!

Well that's silly, especially since they've got amazon listed as one of their 'verified resellers' yet are not willing to refund a product that they themselves are supplying to amazon.

Satisfaction Guaranteed
Two-Year Warranty - Immortal Life Program - 60-Day Test Drive Guarantee: Each M-100 purchased from a Verified Reseller is backed by a 2-Year V-MODA Premier Warranty, more than double the industry average. In the unlikely event you run over your headphones with a tank, with the V-MODA Immortal Life Program, you get 50% off a replacement for a lifetime. V-MODA is so confident the M-100 is a superior headphone, it even offers an unrivaled 60-day test drive guarantee.

 

This is straight from th Amazon product detail page.  This is also the same statement they make on their own web site.  Technically, it does state that this is available when purchased through a reseller, but why would they put it in the same paragraph if they didn't intend to honor it?  In the end, if V-Moda will not honor it, Amazon will need to.  

 

I'm curious though, what did they say specifically when you talked to them?  I assume you are able to provide proof of purchase & that your purchase date does fall within 60 days, correct?

This was the message I received after explaining what happened and asking for a refund: "We apologize for receiving a defective pair! If you would like to provide your full address, we will be happy to send out a new pair today with a pre-paid return label for the defective pair. Unfortunately, we can't refund transactions made through Amazon. We know you'll love the headphones so we want to make sure you have a working pair to try."

 

I bought these literally 1 week ago.

 

So, for anyone who missed it, here is my v-moda story:

Bought the m100s from Amazon with the intention of returning them for a refund based on the test-drive guarantee if I didn't like them. When I got them, i used them in my iPhone, and the right ear seemed softer than the left. Tried them on my main soundcard, the Xonar D1, and they didn't work on the soundcard; I just heard distortion. So they are pretty much useless for me at home, which is where I intend to use them the majority of the time. The next day (using FiiO E7) I noticed that the right ear is defective, as when I press on it gently, the sound goes out. Two days later, the right ear doesn't play any sound the majority of the time (through E7, laptop, and iPhone). I sent a customer service message to V-moda asking for a refund based on the 60-day test drive guarantee on Thursday, and received the above reply today saying that they don't refund transactions made through Amazon. So now I get to receive a new pair of headphones that don't even work on my soundcard, when I only purchased them in the first place because of the supposed refund guarantee!

This is a normal return within Amazon's typical window.  Why didn't you just go through them?  I was under the impression you were not able to return through Amazon.  What they said does make sense and they may have an agreement through Amazon to accept returns up to 60 days.  They really should have addressed that in their reply to you tough.  Just start the return policy through Amazon.  Within the regular return window all returns should go through the retailer.  Retailer's have agreements that account for this and it is expected that they take this type of return.

mos def not.

I for one agree but I Think I can live with having a few pieces of non-visible gauze in my earpads of it means having a comfortable, sexy, great sounding headphone. I wouldn't say the mod is meant to get the best sound out of them, but a preferred sound per user.

Mine was a comfort issue, and the xl pads should solve it.

I think you're asking the wrong question (although they should have seen through it).  Tell them you are wanting to take advantage of the 60 day test drive guarantee.  They don't do returns from amazon purchases per se.

 

*EDIT* NVM - Re-read it and saw that you asked for the test drive...that's opposite of what has been said on here before.
