I ordered if Amazon and it says it's initiated, it's been like that for 4 days, it looks like it hasn'tt even got to the FedEx post office...?

First thing to do is phone your local royal mail sorting office and ask them if they're holding any mail for you, give them your address and name etc. because if it was handled by Royal Mail the postman would have returned the item to the sorting office. Also another thing to note is that if V-Moda themselves are unaware of who the UK courier is I think it's safe to assume it would have been handled by the standard uk mailing service which is Royal Mail and not DHL UPS etc.

Go to:

 

http://www.parcelforce.com/track-trace?page_type=parcel-tracking-details

 

Type in the tracking number you got from stamps.com in the states you have been following, and it will automatically convert to the UK side.

 

You can now track.

 

You will most likely be at one of these points:

 

18-12-2012 08:47 Manchester Piccadilly Depot Awaiting payment of charges
18-12-2012 05:33 Manchester Piccadilly Depot Received at delivery depot
17-12-2012 09:46 National Hub Received and processed
17-12-2012 05:54 International Hub Revised charges to be paid
17-12-2012 05:53 International Hub

Forwarded for UK processing

 

Either way, once you get the waiting payment of charges, ring your local collecting point on the phone, tell them the reference, and you can pay over the phone, or even online.

 

Once that is done, they can arrange delivery.

LIFE SAVER THANK YOU!!!

 

Mine says it's awaiting payment of charges in the London NorthWest Depot (Dunno if that's Royal Mail, is it?). 

 

I'll try to resolve it tomorrow but at least I know what on earth is happening. Thank you so much.

No problem :)

 

The charges should come to around £59.60 or something daft like that

 

On another note, I'll have to tell you my thoughts when I get the PA2V2 amp.

I prefer the M-100's to be more balanced, and have EQ'd the bass down by 1-2db, but my hopes is this amp may help with mids, and bring the voices out slightly better than it does now, but we'll see.

I'd also be interested in seeing what the E12 is capable of

FYI, V-moda just updated their website, and now we can get gold shields for the M-100!!  Sadly however that the orange one is still MIA.

this headphone is looking like the best thing out right now...do they need a portable amp to reach their full potential? the thing I keep running into is distortion when I tweak the eq for added bass

They do not need extra amping no but that does not mean that they won't benefit in some way from extra amping depending on the source of course (was not meant to rhyme

 

What you using as a source

 

Some EQs work against the sound by amping a signal that has ready been fully processed by the internal sound chips so becomes software implemented only which can and will cause distortion at higher settings when sent through the jack

 

Depending on your source you may benefit from an amp with bass controls if you feel you want more rumble

 

Sorry about lack of punctuation

The Mont Blanc (E12) is very flat, without boosting any range in particular. The hardware bass boost bumps the sub bass (I'd guess 80hz and down, like subwoofer bass) up by around 3 dB, it's subtle but doesn't bleed into the mids. Mine sounded flat at first in an OK but kinda boring way, but it surprised me by becoming noticeably musical after a few hours. Feiao surprised me by saying the WIMA capacitors will burn-in a little over the first 20-40 hours, but mine is already pretty exciting after just one charge cycle (I started really noticing the improvement after the first 3 hours). The development wasn't huge, but I think it changed by a % similar to the % change of the bass boost effect.

It doesn't boost the mid frequencies over the rest, but the overall fidelity has improved with the Mont Blanc and that might be enough of an improvement.

They sound just fine un-amped, but amping does help it a bit yes.

If you're using EQ's, reducing the "bars" will yield less distortion than raising them.

I honestly have no idea unfortunately. My M-100 case's zipper is busted as well because of the super tight fit...I only had the M-100's and 1 cable in it [unplugged] when I used to use it.

Nice! Sounds like an interesting portable option. I wonder how an Altoids CMoy would sound with the M-100 (mine is currently dead so I can't test it).

Gold and matte black would look pretty nice in my opinion. No idea why they cost twice the price though.

I think that's a coding error on their page, as $45-50 is the price with the custom logo and not just the shield.  I just paid $45 for my blue ones with the Hi-Nu Gundam logo on it, so $50 for the gold one is not too bad.

Is it? I recall the gold shields being twice the price even during the VTF-100 ordering rush. I was once considering the gold shields for a different design I had in mind until I saw the price.

 

It appears to be the same $50 even with the custom engraving. confused.gif

£60...ridiculous!!! So in total, I've spent more money on postage and all this bs, I might as well have ordered from the UK, I ordered from overseas cause I thought it was cheaper!!

 

So do I call this Parcelforce people directly?
