Mhmm true true. I was just stating that there are more detailed headphones out there, sound signatures aside. If you like the M-100's you'll probably like the HD650's and LCD-2 in the long-run. Ironically enough, I don't like the two very much and I prefer the sound of the HD800 and SR-007, which have more of an airy, analytical sound to them....but this is all summit-fi and I won't be going in that area for a long while.
That doesn't sound too good. My ears get fatigued after using the SRH940 at medium volume levels on the bus, but I always thought it was because of the non-sibilant treble peaks. Maybe you should check up with a doctor if it persists for a few more days (or maybe it's because of the chest virus).
As for the Nightwish track (which isn't on their Imaginaerum album until I realised you said Imaginaerum (The Score)) yeah I hear the bass drop, but I can also hear it quite clearly on my $20 Sennheiser earphones. That sub[bass]-woofer you've got there is in need of a doctor too if it can't reproduce it. XD
Found out it can produce it, but the Youtube link doesn't reproduce it as well as when I played it on Spotify. The bass breaks up a lot more on the Youtube link.
I was using Spotify for the headphone comparison.
I'm pretty sure my PX-100 Sennheisers wouldn't have produced the bass as low and as clear as the M-100's did. I can't test it either since one side died :(
Yeah, I hope it is the chest virus, but the headphones seem to keep doing that to my left ear either way. It does really feel like it is physically closing up.
i.e muscles in the ear can close to protect you from high sounds, but seeing as I'm not listening at high enough volumes I wouldn't have thought to make this happen...
Especially as it usually happens at night whilst in bed listening, where I have the volume half of what I would have it in the day.
I just wondered if maybe the closed nature of the headphones could be causing some kind of... pressure embalance of some kind my ears aren't acustomed too, so my brain is trying to protect them.
Hope you get better soon! Ah gosh, with the flu around these days no one knows what's going to happen to you. I caught bronchitis myself...not fun. >.>
I have the white and no paint chipping issues as the hinges are not painted, plus I prefer them in white.
Yeah the white silver colour has no paint chipping for me either, if there is any paint. The earcups feel like regular 'ol plastic without paint and likewise for the metal yokes.
