Well, if your friend likes them better, I'm not sure my opinion will rub anything in his face, but IMO, they have no soundstage and have that typical muddy Beats sound in the mids with lacking highs as well as mediocre one-note bass.  Beats wins on global branding; M-100 wins on sound.  My son and nephew have Ludacris Souls which sound the same as Beats and they both immediately noticed the superior clarity, resolution and extended highs of the M-100 over rapper cans.

 

This sounds like a case of perception = reality.  I think if you could convince V-Moda to make custom shields with the Beats logo, your friend would say they were the best sounding headphone ever made.

The best thing would be to let him listen, first with your M-100 then replay the song with his Beats Mixr. Of course, if you set the stage by priming his attention on detail in the mids and lows, recessed highs, then he will be paying extra attention (and possibly deny you just to save face). If you really want to be cruel, show him how the M-100 earcups can be bent so they pass eachother, then bend them out, and ask him if his headphones can do that. You don't even have to flex your headphones all the way they can go, if it seems reasonable that his should be able to do it too and he tries it, his beats will break biggrin.gif

Thanks for the responses fellow Aussies. Guess it's the V-Moda site then.

Just tell them to order from V moda direct since there's no tax on postal goods under $1000 AUD.

*oops, I just checked there, and they don't seem to have the M-100s yet.

Damn I've got a lot to catch up on in this thread.  I was really hoping to pick up the M-100's but they aren't arriving at any stores here until about April.

If you really want the gold shields, you can get them on Amazon for 25, but of course, no custom engraving.

Why are they $25 more though? That's what I do not understand.

Hey guys, just wondering what you think.  I have a pair of UE 6000's along with some M-80's.  You think I should pick up the M-100 in the near future anyways?  The prominent bass and recessed midrange that I keep hearing about kept turning me off.  If anyone is wondering I listen to all types of rock with a splash of dubstep.

post #12118 of 21165
Recessed has always been the wrong word to describe the mid range and people need to remember that.

Laidback is a better description, but recessed, or veiled? Most definitely not.
post #12119 of 21165

I think the mids are "laidback" by the emphasis on the amount of bass and treble 

post #12120 of 21165

Agreed. The midrange detail is too great to really be considered recessed.
