True but why bother when the C5 is only $50 more?

E17 is a DAC/amp so if an external soundcard is needed, the E17 would be more useful in that case. It's the reason why I bought the E7 in the first place since my on-board soundcard was meh.

Very true, as I got my NuForce Icon Mobile a long time ago (when FiiO just started and still making crap) for the exact reason.

Not really, but remember I was talking about over 6 years ago when they only makes the E3s and such, and the old FiiOs were no where near the E7 or E17.

How well do you think the m100 does with gaming? Do you guys think they could handle First Person Shooters(FPS, RPG's etc.) well? Also would an amp benefit when gaming, I heard that the can needs good sound stage, which the m100 does provide good amount. Also on amps what kind of amp would work with it? I heard the astro mixamp is good, but I heard it is discouraged among audiophiles?

Look at my sig and you know how much I game (specially Sniper Elite V2 on Steam), and I can tell you that the M-100 is WAY better than any 7.1 gaming headset out there. Don't sucker into buying those.

Thanks DrSheep for all your help! I actually watched the Battlefield 4 17 minute gameplay reveal, and it nearly gave me a heart attack. It was so realistic, I could clearly hear the people positions and foot steps and people talking from below! It is amazing! Also do you think I need an amp while gaming, how about when I am gaming on a console?

I haven't tried that, but you will need some RCA out and maybe some extension for consoles.  I use my DragonFly for games too, and it is more of a DAC than AMP so you don't really need one for gaming in my option.  Maybe I should try using my VERSA/M-100 combo for games at least once...

Note I haven't used either, but usually when people are talking about gaming amps that give you virtual surround sound, the astro mixamp does get brought up. a cheaper alternative would be the creative blaster recon 3d.

Sorry to break up the gaming tangent, but I did a set tonight and decided to wear my M-100s on stage with me. Sorry about the crappy video quality. My phone's camera doesn't have the best zoom and I couldn't find a closer spot to film.

post #13271 of 21232

Didn't know you do stand ups.

 

p.s. that last joke is very good, and it goes very well in my line of work :).

Oh man that was a good laugh. Stand up is hard, I've watched a lot of amateurs fail to get so much as a chuckle from a full room, but you were really good! great delivery and confidence is key.

BRAVO, we'll post that on FB.  From the studio to the streets to the stage, even a COMEDY stage - thats a first. Now who will be first in space, on a volcano, on _____ w a M-100......?  Reports have it that they are being used on some Air Force 1/2 flights already.

 

Doing stand up and the delivery is on my bucket list too, I just had to do THEM BOTH first with M-100!!! 

 

 

 

 PS - Metallo for iPhone 5/Samsung, VAMP VERZA and ALL M-100s in ALL colors will be in stock at the same time tomorrow on V-MODA.com.  FINALLY, that's delivery!

Nice, Nhan you are going to be famous :).  BTW, when will the XL (or the regular) pads be listed in the store?  I am still a bit confuse about the deal on whether I can order now or not...

Great set Nahn! Next time you'll have to incorporate your M-100's in a sketch.
