Hey guys, an upd, ate. In London at the moment and had a chance to try the Sony MDR 1s that have been compared somewhat with the M100s.
Great for electronic but not as good for anything else. The M-100s in particular have much cleaner vocals so it sounds right infront of you.
No headphone has matched them except for the Momentum.
I also tried the Amperor and the build didn't appeal to me for the price at all. Sound wise, didn't compare at all.
So even happier with purchase now. I also tried all beats on display and i still can't see the hype. Mine just blew them all away. Even my friends agreed.
In London though, alot more range in headphones on people's heads. In Manchester you don't see that. It's either beats or standard. Only a few have I seen real headphones on necks or on heads.
Saw a few beats but nothing in comparison
No one had mine =p
That's interesting to hear. I've read that the MDR 1R has a similar midrange to the ATH-ESW9, which is renown for their lush midrange as a woodie headphone. Jude seems to prefer the MDR 1R over the M-100 for general listening purposes.
