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!

Oh, that'd be awesome! I'm currently awaiting some high-res photos from the set so I can make the preview thumbnail for the video a much better shot of me with the M-100. And I do shows almost every night. Next time you're in NYC, Val, hit me up and I can get you onstage.

 

Thanks, guys! I've been trying to come up with more headphone/music related jokes. I'll post another video once I pull that set together and find a decent show to film.

Am currently in possession of both the Momentum and the M-100, and was looking for some brief feedback on certain issues.

 

First some brief impressions. If one was looking for the most all rounded headphone soundwise then I would say the momentum extends a small lead in general due to the sound sig closer to neutral (though still not near at all). The issue with them is that it never seems to excel with any given genre, and this is where the M-100 comes in. With well produced hip hop or electronic, the extra bass and greater 'front-back' soundstage (for lack of better words) makes M-100 to sound great. However, with guitar-heavy metal a la 'A New Level' by Pantera, the bass is just completely in the way for the most part. 

Where the M-100 absolutely dominates is in practicality, the case is half the size than that of momentum which is a huge bonus.


So I wanted to ask if anyone had found a good, low profile, way of reducing some of that bass? 

The ipod classic sounds slightly loose in the bass department (from comparisons with my musical fidelity M1DAC/M1HPA) and exacerbates this problem.

that was brilliant! thanks for sharing, i enjoyed it very much

Some people have reported that the paper towel mod reduces bass and brings out the mids more, although my experience with the mod didn't have that effect. I think the material you use may play a role there. Some people have tried playing with the foam covering underneath the shields and there is always EQing.

I use to equalize them kind of this way, depending on what I'm listening to:

 

 

In fact you can move between 2db and 5db.

 

If you were meaning a mod, then you can try the one with the Garfield Softies that is somewhere in this thread.

what exactly do you mean by this? if you equalize properly, you can "move" a hell of a lot more than that...

I mean that is what I usually do with the M-100, you can put out there whatever you want. You can go to a million if that is what satisfies you. That was only my way to equalize them depending on what I am listening to.

There is a youtuber, who's name is dalethorn2, said that he prefers the M100 over the momentum since you could eq it to sound like the momentum, but with better neutral highs. He said this in his youtube "I got some questions off-line about the M100, so without repeating the questions here I'll try to explain in a way that makes the best sense. Some people get the sense that the M100 treble or midrange is recessed, but that's just an impression that occurs because of the strong bass. In desktop Foobar2000, I set the EQ to -1 at 311, -2 at 220, -3 at 156, -4 at 110 and 77, and -3 at 55 hz"

 

 

Also he said this about the bass reducing setting to sound like the momentum : "When I use iTunes, I start with the default bass reducer setting on the equalizer, then I reset the sliders to zero (flat) at 500 hz, -2 at 250 hz, -4 at 125 hz and 64 hz, and -2 at 32 hz. With Foobar2000, I go -1 at 311 hz, -2 at 220 hz, -3 at 156 hz, -4 at 110 hz and 77 hz, and -3 at 55 hz. With ipods alone or feeding into a portable amp, I just use the ipod bass reducer (but only in very quiet places). Mostly when outdoors or on public transit, I don't see a need to adjust the bass.The important thing when using equalizers is to keep the sliders close together - having adjacent sliders far apart creates huge narrow peaks and dips in the response and then the sound gets choppy. So I only do small gentle corrections as described."

Yeah app wise EQing will definitely help on cutting the bass., but also remember that default flat / no EQ setting from the iPhone / iPod is actually not flat, so either way you will still need some kind of app to  truly flat line and cut bass.

Never tried it myself but I think so.

Ah Dale Thorn, good 'ol YouTuber. He's not afraid to use the EQ.

He actually got banned from the SRH940 thread for attacking people. >_<

Also, he's the only person I know of who says the UE6000 sounds more high-fidelity with the noise cancelling on with a bass reducing EQ.

post #13290 of 20285

i like his videos though and mostly i agree with his thoughts. what you mentioned about the ue6000 was when he had a defective pair.
