Is the headband material on the shadow m-80 some type of leather? I just got then and I accidentally scratched them and it won't come off, any suggestions?

It is a synthetic material.

One of the issues I had with the M-100s was the soundstage. Rather than a wide soundstage, it was more deep, like the layers were standing in a line. I paired it up with the O2 amp from JDS Labs and these two pair very nicely. It seemed to fix the soundstage issue, and the vocals came out of my head and little more in front and a tad lower. 

 

The O2 amp doesn't bring out the bass if that is your thing, but it seemed to improve SQ all around.

 

I've read people say the mids are recessed, but when it comes to female vocals, the M-100s are really good, especially with the O2 amp. I now own the HE-500, which was raved for its mids and both male and female vocal presentations, and honestly, I found vocals such as Sarah McLaughlin better with the M-100s. They sounded clearer, and more open, airier. The M-100s with the O2 amp made my unamped HE-500 seem a little recessed in the mids, at least with female vocals! I'll be getting the RSA SR71B amp to pair with the HE-500 soon and we'll see if that changes any.

 

I did end up sending the M-100s back and kept the HE-500s. I found the M-100 bass impact to be on par with the HE-500, but the HE-500 goes deeper, with a velvety sounding bass that I love.

 

However, no doubt the features of the M-100 were awesome! I will dearly miss all the extra touches and the build quality. A job well done there.

 

They are double the price though! :p But yeah, whatever suits your needs :)

I'm waiting for the PA2V2 amp to pair with my SGS3 and the M-100's, so I can't wait to see how that improves things.

It's meant to be less analytical than the O2 amp, but it may give it a warmer sound which may appeal to me.

You'll find a lot of her stuff sounds good on the M-100's! :p That track is really good though!

Yup its deceptively small. Much smaller than the LP and M-80 boxes which is impressive imo

The zipper on my case busted open because of the tight fit. But yes, they are an impressively small headphone. People always look at me weird when they hear the *click* *click* sound when I fold the M-100's. XD

My ears touch the inside of the driver enclosure making the outer tips of my ears red and painful very difficult to wear for long periods. I am thinking of returning them. What a shame, I heard about the bigger pads coming out, I'm trying to decide if I should wait on those.

 

My first impressions running out of a E10 is very balanced sound, I can't find anything I don't like about the signature. I demoed both the HE-400's and the M-100's. I liked the M100's more because the music felt more engaging and there was a stronger bass punch. The HE-400's sounded airy, laid back, and distant. Did not like. I tried the HE-400's out of various amps including a tube amp in store.

 

I listen to EDM exclusively though. I owned the D2000's and Pro 900's before this, the M100's are just about as amazing as the D2000's

Could you do a comparison between the 3

Sidwulf, wait a week or so.

The material softens and molds to your head. I used to suffer discomfort, but I hardly do now.

I still need the other set of pads though, to help balance the sound.

I'm considering returning my M-100 and purchasing the HE-400. I've had the M-100 for almost two weeks and have been listening to it for 2-3 hours a days since the day I received it. The M-100 sounds great with all my music, i listen to EDM exclusively, and has very nice bass impact, clarity in the mids, and decent treble. My only problem with it is the fit. I feel like I have to spend 10 minutes just getting it situated on my ears so that my ear lobes aren't exposed and so my ears aren't rubbing against the driver. I also feel like they are always about to fall of, almost like they are not pushing down hard enough on my ears. I'm goin to keep them for at least a few more weeks to see if my opinion changes with more usage, but I haven't made my mind up about anything.

Hey miceblue,
Do you remember this post?

I finally made the headphone surround intro guide.

I would really like your feedback on how well the M-100 does with the surround tests, and perhaps a comparison if you have any other headphone?
