agreed, just because if you are listening to bass heavy music, it will show up, but to more neutral music it will never intrude ^^

IMO I hope they don't have as much bass, but can be EQed or amped for more.

Ya that's fair. Like have it capable of it if you ask it too (i.e. EQ bass boost)

Does anyone know if Val has a patent on the 45 degree jacks? I haven't seen any other companies doe this and after months with my m80 I find it the best design possible. Far better than 90 degree or straight jacks.

Nah, a few other companies do that - Dunu for example.  I'm not really sure why other companies haven't jumped onto it yet, they are pretty great for everyday use.

It's most likely because they don't break as easily when subjected to the wear and tear of being used in pocket, being rotated all the time, etc. High end headphones with straight plugs don't deal with that plus they are really, tough (look at the grado plugs and cables, gonna take a lot to break something that thick) whereas cheaper cans have the flimsier wires and plugs. 

 

TL;DR they break more causing people to have to rebuy cheap headphones=more profit for other companies.

I know we are asking alot from Val as they are about to be released, but I'm wondering if Val could add whisper quiet micro fans in the ear cups to address the issue of ear sweating when wearing during exercise..................perhaps a future release, the M100MF (for micro fan).  Of course, I am being facetious, but with lighted logos on rapper cans, can micro fans be far behind?

 

Lol micro fans.
But yeah in u experience, supra-aural seals quite well. It blocks surrounding noise quite well, but depends which model. HD25-ii (which to me seems like what the Amperior is based/plagiarized on) isn't one I'd call well sealing but that depends on the pads. Larger plush pads seal quite well. Better than circum-aural that suffers from leaks through the larger cups. Once again, depends on the model.

Val...I found another pic of what I believe is the M-100.  (yes I scan the internet daily for it) From the Shanghai SIAV exhibition.  It's not a close-up and doesn't give away much other than the fact that you can see the earcups in folded position.  Just thought I'd ask if you minded before posting it here.   There's also another  distant photo of what I think is the Vamp.  I'm pretty consumed by it, awaiting it's birth.  I can't imagine what you must be feeling. Are you freakin' out too?

Why am I so worried about the VAMP in the event the iPhone 5 is a different shape?

post #1303 of 21063

Hi guys,

I had the chance to see and hear the m-100 and the vamp

at the german high-end exhibition in munich and I was very pleased what I heard.

 

When folded the m-100 looked very compact.

My first listening test was a demo track played through an iPhone with

a vamp attached to it.

Although I don't posses an iPhone I think the design of the vamp is

well made fitting like a glove on the back of the phone.

Soundwise I was impressed. But I can't reacall

too much since It was just a brief listening.

 

Next up I tested the hp with my samsung galaxy nexus.

Volume was no issue and I was able to drive it loud enough

for my taste. Sound performance was very solid with plenty of bass imho,

although I was told it is still being tuned and not final of course.

 

A new feature will be also screwable calbes for a more secure fit.

 

I wished the earcups of the m-100 would be a little bit bigger,

because I kinda felt it was touching my normal sized ears all around

but still way more comfortable than the m-80.

I also would love the option for velour earpads.

Do the m100s have ambidextrous cable inputs or dual cable outlets? Basically, I want to know if you can enter the headphone cables from the right and left ear cups.

Amazing, how did they look? Are the shield and phone design pretty much just like the LPs except with the folds? Did you have any chance to test out isolation?
