Funny story. I went into Best Buy with my friend and he tried the P5s and a salesman/floor worker came up to him after he took them off and asked if he liked them. He said "no, not really", then the guy said "well, they certainly aren't beats"

Totally would ask the saleman "have you heard and compared both?"

gosh.

 

I don't like the P5 much either until I figured it has to be fitted a specific way to really shine. Still too expensive for my liking...

Huh.  I guess the Apple store in my town stopped carrying them. I haven't seen them for quite some time.

I never actually heard VModa headphones, but overwhelmed with curiosity to listen to the M100.  Based on the sound of other VModas (thinking M80 and LP2) and anticipated sound of M100, could they potentially have detail and clarity comparable to headphones costing hundreds of $$$$ more? 

 

Thinking of maxing out my credit card on Ultrasone Signature Pros, but would prefer to wait for the M100 and save $600 if they have the potential to be close in sound reproduction.

I'm thinking that they probably won't be the most technical or reference headphones, but will have an enjoyable sound signature that's audiophile-friendly much like the M-80 but with more extension on both ends, sub-bass especially.

Thanks, great description that should hold me over until the July release.  How would you describe the M80 compared to the Sennheiser 580?  I listened to the 380 and really like the mids and highs on those, but the bass was lacking.

The 580's mids are more recessed than the M80s, bass has much more extension with more texture but isn't as tight, and highs are a little more prevalent but just as sweet sounding maybe with a tiny bit more sparkle. The 580s are also more laid back overall.

What? Free V-MODA headphones with a laptop? Hmm...

 

(Just checked the MS store. They're crappy Nokia Purity headphones made by Monster. If the deal is to give away crap headphones with a laptop, then I'll bet we can count V-MODA out.)

LOVING MY NOKIA 900, it's UI is SOOO BEAUTIFUL.  Haven't tested sound enough though, using VAMP too much for critical listening w iPhone but my Nokia 900 for all calls and apps lately.  Can't wait for METRO Ultrabooks w touchscreens, it's going to be a big year for MSFT if the hardware mfgrs step it up.  I feel like the new UI is Minority Report from the future, which is now...

Just wait when Windows 8 comes out and someone makes a Kinect hack for it. Then it will be TRUE Minority Report UI.

 

 

Thinking about it is just exciting!

Just got the Ultrasone DJ1 Pro and I love them. The bass is huge- but precise.The highs are also clear and precise . One drawback, and it's a big one for me, is that they look ridiculous on my smallish head. I want to use them for my Sony MP3 , but I'm too emabarrassed to wear them out in public. So I'm waiting for the M-100s and I'll have to decide between those, and the Denon ahd 2000. I'm thinking these  50mm driven cans will look more discreet, while providing the bass response I'm after.

I give Microsoft props for a relatively new design, instead of the copying from the past. Little tiles with functionality are more unique, and in the end, more effective than widgets/gadgets. Like I said, it's a unique approach compared to Android and especially Samsung's implementation of Andriod that look just like Apple's iOS, and I kinda think it's more useful.
Nokia also has the chops to do amazing things, but honestly I haven't seen their latest offerings. I DID see their very cool nano-tech phone concept that you wear on your wrist, stretches out into a small tablet (with solar charging), and is self cleaning. Nokia is not in the spotlight any more as much since Android and iOS reached a new bar.
Microsoft and Nokia, the biggest companies in their fields, they used to be "the man" with market dominance and stagnant development, but now they have really strong competition. It'll be really exciting to see how they apply their vast resources when they truly try to compete in the mainstream space.
I have no idea why mostly just enthusiasts are aware of Sennheiser, but I feel that as high value underdogs such as V-MODA redefine the market and people learn about the alternatives to iBuds, Bose, and Beats (a lot of B-phones?), personal audio will undergo a mini Renessance as well smily_headphones1.gif

Tho perhaps not as big as when iPods made headphone listening mainstream, at a level far beyond walkmans...

I'm looking into getting a Droid Razr Maxx, anyone know how good the sound quality is from those?

Some of us had a chance to try out the M100 at the Tokyo Fujiya May Headphone Festival today. According to the V-Moda desk, the M100 we tried out is still pre-production. Initially brief impressions are that this does sound quite good and decent treble extensions (by far the major contrast in comparison to the LP2s) and a rather musical pair of headphones. Personally, I found the bass could be a little tighter however having said that, something like Black Eyed Peas sounded great on them. I also thought Lana Del Rey's "Video Game" sounded decent, although at least for me, I've had some other vocal tracks that didn't suit the M100 (e.g. most of the Diana Krall tracks I had little time to try on). For me, if I had a pair of these I'd use them more as musical headphones rather than analytical.

 

The way they fold is just amazing and quite compact, and the case is aesthetically awesome - IMHO, #1 in presentation, even the Japanese folks were impressed with it (and not just the case but the packaging).

 

Aside from what I personally perceive to be the loose bass, I do have one other little thing to pick on and the hinge for the folding cups, is that hinge final? At least to me, aesthetically it looks somewhat big-ish, doesn't seem to match the V-Moda style of "cool looking". I understand that going for slimmer profile hinges would mean less durable (which in turn contradicts the other V-Moda's policy of durability), but is there some other option of a "fair" compromise?

 

I've got pix but I'd rather get Val's permission first before posting them up.
