I also listen for many hrs, usually there happens a break naturally and usually there's never non-stop music on in my case (listening at the computer only). But I've forced myself into a limited volume level that I never cross and by doing so I'm adapted to enjoy this lower level volume level, at least it shouldn't be louder than 85dB, that's for sure, probably isn't not that high either except well the brickwalled masterings on hardstyle tracks perhaps.

Remember everybody, TIME AND LOUDNESS is what = hearing loss.  Be careful!   Especially if the headphones are or mastering is bright.  If M-100 or ANY headphone isn't comfortable past 1 or 2 hours, it is also a SIGN you need to take a 15-30 minute hearing break to keep your hearing health.  

 

Ain't no anecdote for deafness, you want to be an audiophile for life as audio is something that you can really enjoy in your "golden ears" (pun intended).  Also beware that during workouts, your blood goes to your muscles so your hearing may not be as good and you may be listening too loud and not know it.

 

PS - I sound like a mom and this IS a shameless plug, but "don't forget your Faders" when going to loud events, concert and festival season is coming up.  Amazon has a sale on Faders VIP for $14.99, you can't go wrong if you didn't get them with an M-100 promo.  

 

Plus with the Faders + M-100 you can have a passive noise cancelling for flights, the little strap inside the M-100 case is meant for Faders VIP case (maybe someone can photograph).  And the other strap next to the 1/4" adapter holds a USB memory stick.

Yup, I always try to listen to my music at as low of a volume level as possible. I really is a scary thing to see other people listening to their music and you can hear their music over your headphones, over your own music. :/

Practice safe sound!

 

Sometimes it's fun to listen to headphones at low levels and look for details in the audio.... low level critical listening i guess that's what its called...

 

Sorta like "hypermiling" if we're talking about cars hehehe

Someone in the basshead thread recommended the JVC FXZ-200

Velodyne V-Pulse? V-Moda IEMs?

Val,

 

Will you be starting a Verza thread?  Also, since Verza doesn't really compete with low-cost portable amps, are there any that you recommend which pair well with M-100s?

I'd say it's worth contacting V-MODA support, since this sounds like an oversight on their part -- and, given how strong their service typically is, I'm betting they'd be happy to correct it for you.

UK headfiers, Amazon UK now have stock of the Matte Black! Get in there quick if you want them!

 

Unfortunately for me, my pre-order is for the Shadows of which there is still no stock (as well as white), sods law. frown.gif

I just received my m100 yesterday and am really enjoying them so far. I read about how they are small they are when packed, but was still surprised when I saw them. I do notice that the headband seem to twist towards an angle when putting them down instead of being balanced. The right side keeps bending towards the front and it is harder to bend towards the back. Is this how it is suppose to be?

That's what i thought you were promoting, because Ive seen you talk about some of them in the edm exchange. You're lucky you have a scene for D&B up there, here it's all trap and hip hop. We have the M Machine coming here in like a month, and that's the first big artist to come here since skrillex did over a year ago.

There is also a small number available at amazon.de (15 pieces matte black right now, no shadow or white though).

eek.gif Ouch. Skrillex played in Toronto five times in the last 12 months; 3 shows in one weekend. I remember cuz I had to chase him around and flyer the two parties he played one of those nights haha. Here's the distance of longboarding I had to cover

 

Our drum and bass scene is held together by the independent companies that bring big name headliners on the regular as well as the longest running EDM promotional company in Canada, Destiny, bringing WEMF, Bass Week, Digital Dreams (in part with Electronic Nation), as well as many other Projek parties of the biggest names in drum and bass. And we've got some local talent making a splash internationally too iLL.Gates for glitch hop and dubstep, Rene LaVice just released his first LP on RAM, Gremlinz has a spot on Metalheadz, NC-17 keeps releasing gold on Grindhou5e, and Marcus Visionary, the local drum and bass junglist legend is touring Europe in August and September, making an appearance at Outlook Festival in Croatia. This guy is on nearly every flyer in Toronto. Our scene is highly influenced by the UK scene, and we've even had Jayline stay here for a few years before getting deported cuz of his crazy (ex)girlfriend haha.

 

I know Kansas has a scene, and Miami. I'm pretty sure Vegas' scene is tourst-artificial; I heard last year Deadmau5 had a residency in Vegas and played shows regularly at a hotel. But then there's EDC in Vegas..... Come to think of it I seem to remember Bassnectar and Deiselboy posting about being in Memphis this past year, I could be wrong. 

 

Anyways, this is OT... I'm passionate about my promoting, what can I say :D

Sort of off topic: something called "VTF" is up for pre-order on V-moda site for $40, but there are no text in the listing so I have no idea what it is...
