With it on, there seems to be added treble energy, almost sibilant to me, the bass is reduced in quantity so it's more balanced, and the midrange is brought forward. Switching to the normal/no profile, it's very evident to me that the midrange is laid-back and the lower-midrange gets veiled somewhat from the bass.

 

iPhone 4S (320 kbps MP3's) -> FiiO L3 -> C5 (bass boost off) -> M-100's

 

 

If you download the free app, I think the M50 works the best from what I've tried so far. If you have any other profile suggestions, feel free to give me a holler since I have the paid app and unlimited sound profiles.

 

Thanks mice. I am extremely happy with the Audioforge Equalizer app (really brings the "dull" Touch 5G sound to life imho), but I will try the Accudio with the M50 profile and see how it sounds.

I would have made this a constant thing but I can't find a steady stream of fake cheap beats headphones. People seriously want over $100 for fake beats headphones. WTF. 

 

You're not that bad...I'm just terrible. 

You are indeed.  You are clearly an asset to society.

I like the way you think, A man who stands on principle has my respect.

After I finished I went to the customer service desk and returned the cable for a refund, then went back home.

 

Am I a bad person because of this? biggrin.gif


On the shady scale, probably about a 2 out of 10.  If you want to feel better about yourself, watch Shameless on Showtime.

The only thing that boggles me is how you COULD NOT be without listening to music this one time. That's pretty extreme addiction right there. I personally don't even listen on the go or at work, ever. When I'm outside my home I just want to focus on the surroundings or whatever I'm occupied with. :p

That sounds boring :p

 

I personally hate the noise pollution that surrounds me and would rather concentrate on music I love. I just went across the street to pick up Chinese food and brought my rig with me.

I listen to brown noise when I need to concentrate. Reminds me of beautiful waterfalls. confused_face.gif

So no offense, but this is one of the things I have often pondered about our society as of late.  I always see kids walking around the store (usually with their parents) and they have headphones in, and I wonder why they can't just take an hour and observe the world around them -- Maybe it's just a different mindset -- while at home I am fairly active with CCW, so even when on travel I have a hard time walking down the street and purposely making it so I don't know what's going on in my surroundings.  Put me on a plane, in an airport, or at my desk though and please...drown out the rest of the world!

To each is own. I think I maybe was born with headphones on. Like I said before I am a music lover and I listen to headphones A LOT. And I've been doing it all my life. To top it off I was a Club DJ/Turntablist for almost 20 years -so that didn't helped-. My family is used to it and that's all it matters to me. To be honest I DO enjoy the "being in my own world" effect that I get when I have my headphones on.  

 

Am I addicted to music? Possibly. Believe me, it could be worst.

I don't think it's such a bad thing to walk around with headphones on as long as you acknowledge that you are impairing yourself by doing so. You have lost the ability to hear and cannot react to danger around you as fast as you could without headphones. You must compensate some what and be extra alert with your eyes and paying attention to other peoples body language. When I have headphones on I'm constantly looking around and at other peoples faces around me. If something is happening you will notice their facial expressions change and they will stare in the direction of what ever is happening. As a cyclist I am literally putting my life on the line just to listen to some tunes on my way to and from work. AND I CAN'T STAND J WALKERS WHO HAVE HEADPHONES ON AND WALK OUT INTO THE STREET LIKE THEY DON'T HAVE A CARE IN THE WORLD. When ever I hit one of these guys with my bike I ask if they are OK and I'm on my way. I don't feel bad for them or anything because they are just being idiots and I've probably saved them from a real fatal accident with a car now that they have a new found appreciation for looking both ways before crossing the street.

Well, I am 42 years old and as of yet I haven't been hit by any bikes, cars, trains, semi's, planes or ufo's so I think I'm doing it right. o2smile.gif

 

Anyways, I didn't expect my post to have so much reaction and derail our M-100 discussion, so let's move on please.

It's not entirely a matter of drowning out the world around me. It's more like I have a love for music and when I'm out, if I have the luxury of bringing music with me, then I will. Noise pollution is a bit of a problem for me though; I'd prefer not eavesdrop on others, or subject myself to the screeching subway or busy Toronto streets. I've also been listening at lower levels lately so I'm not completely enveloped by my music, and I don't usually keep my headphones on when my full attention is needed like at a corner store or whatever, but I still can't do without music. 

 

As a cyclist/longboarder, I find it extremely dangerous to listen to music while commuting that way. I use IEMs for cycling/longboarding the city, but only ever one ear in, and it's always the right ear. It actually bothers me a lot to see cyclists wearing headphones, especially in such a heated cyclist vs motorist type city like Toronto...

Received my black 3-Button SpeakEasy cable today. (I think) its a little bit thinner than the orange one, but I like that. Now I don't have to mess with my iPod while listening to my playlists at the gym. wink_face.gif

Probably like most of us, we love music, thats why we are so passionate about our head phones, but yes like you im also in Toronto. but just IMO. Even tho im crossing the streets with my headphones blasted, or over one ear. I believe the main point is that you are aware of ur surroundings(DONT BE IGNORANT). Even tho i probably looked cracked out turning my head left and right all the time, I do what i have to do to get around safely, with that said , light is faster than sound, so use ur eyes first!

 

But dont be so passionate that u are air drumming ur steering wheel, or closing ur eyes while air guitaring to a awesome solo as u cross the street or kicking hard while u pedal/push on ur board/bike to some awesome hardstyle music. But i know when i have my M-100 on. I want to just rock it out too.

 

off topic, what grinds my gears is parents j-walkin while holding their childern's hand. or even carrying a infant!, Has crossing the street like a regular person gone to main stream!?
