I find the bass overpowering with stuff like Deadmou5 and that's when I pull out my HD700s. I'm going to stick with Audirvana+ for now.

I'm an Audirvana Plus user. smily_headphones1.gif
I don't use iTunes so I'm not a big fan of Amarra, but it probably has the best iTunes integration of the major audiophile Mac music players (Amarra, Audirvana, Fidelia).

Now why is it that Mac users have to pay for audiophile music players and Windows users have free ones (Foobar with WASAPI output or Winamp)? XD

Oh, if anyone is looking for a radio station app on the iPhone (dunno about Android or Windows), "TuneIn" is a pretty good app. It's not the best of sound quality but it's good for casual listening. They have radio stations world wide including Antarctica...I must say, I enjoy China's top 40 songs exponentially more than America's top 40 songs even though I don't completely understand the lyrics. There's some pretty good Japanese radio stations too.

I love bass, but I need that clarity on geeeeetars. Works just fine?

Yay? Nay?

I go for Yay. Don't be afraid to mess with EQ to lower the bass if you feel it getting too heavy.

Personally though, Acoustic is something the M-100's do very well

Should do fine for acoustic as long as it's not poorly mastered. There's clarity in the midrange like you wouldn't believe, but that said, the bass is strong. But if you don't mind a healthy dose of bass, then these should be fine for you.

I'd say yay for the most part.

I think they need to hit go on it. How have you bought it, paypal or through credit card/debit card?

post #11664 of 21094

Credit card. I got an email giving my order info saying thanks for ordering and that's it. I go to the site and when I check my package info it says manual activation required in the package info area.

On a random note, I know that Val was designing a headphone stand earlier in this thread...probably about 300 486 pages back or something like that. XD

If anyone needs a headphone stand, I found one at Best Buy for cheap (cheap as in < $10 USD).

 

Rocketfish™ Universal Headset Stand, padding might be beneficial to prevent dents in the headband

 

Or if the chrome-coloured plastic isn't to your liking, grocery stores sometimes have metal banana stands.

^ something like that; foam shelving liner can be used to make the hook thicker and less likely to leave a dent in the headband (although it's not like it's going to seriously affect the comfort levels, I think)

I just use my lamp that kind of looks like this:

 

Except the light part is bigger and rounder. Efficient use of space if you ask me. The top doesn't even get hot either because I use a shorter energy saving bulb than the one necessary.

I just put my headphones on the table. No harm done. I also have a shelf on my laptop stand (DJ rig) so that's where I put them

 

But then there's this  Talk about diminishing returns. 

 

Okay I concede. I'll get a Verza WAY before one of those.

Anyone else think this song has a really nice rumble?  Also thinking of picking up a nice looking headphone stand from mp4nation since they have free shipping.

Ew why? Send it in for repair. That's much more worth it than giving up and buying Beats?
