from my personal experience, the headphones would slip around a lil bit (not much, but just enough to be slightly annoying). my ears got really hot & stuffy under the earpads, which caused me to start sweating earlier. when I started sweating the headphones got really uncomfortable to wear. however, i don't think these issues would be specific to the m100, but rather to overear closed headphones in general.

 

I do think that out of all the closed headphones i've tried, the m100 would seem like the best one to exercise with as it has a very tight clamp & is made of very durable materials, so I wouldn't be as worried about dropping them. only slight drawback is that these headphones are a bit heftier than others due to the metal construction.

 

Edit: I think that the Sennheiser Momentums would be a pretty good choice for exercise headphones. they are incredibly light & very small... has real leather earpads that are more breathable & more on-ear than over-ear, so your ears probably wouldn't get as stuffy.


M-100s are more secure on my ears than most IEMs unless they have ear hooks.

How would you compare the sound?

I tried the M-80 before and after owning the M-100.  Initially I thought the M-100 was bassier.  After listening again to the M-80, it seems M-80 bass is muddier to me and seems to dominate more of the range than the M-100 which is brighter and more expansive with tighter bass.  It is interesting to me that many consider the M-80 more neutral.  I am not sure which is more neutral, I just know I find the M-100 far superior to the M-80 sonically.

When you say background actor, are you an extra?

Get the Verza.  It is amazing with the M-100.  Also, regarding the wife, I'm sure you have heard the saying it is easier to get forgiveness than permission k701smile.gif

EQ is not the issue.  M-100 is simply a superior headphone as it should be for the price as well as Val building on his M-80 experience based on feedback to create the M-100.

That was exactly what I wanted to hear, as I didn't try the M-80. :)

I've never asked for permission nor forgiveness.  I walk a very fine line my friend.  tongue.gif

 

Am definitely planning for a VERZA though.  Oh, nice review on Amazon too!

 

(hmmm... mayber there's something about that part about forgiveness, i'll think about it. biggrin.gif)

Nice!  The next Captain America flick would be my guess.

Yes. I've found saying extra sometimes confuses people.

I'm surprised no one has gotten it yet. Maybe the white is throwing everyone off.

If you are wearing V-Modas while on-camera, then it has to be a movie set in modern times... not historical, fantasy, or sci-fi. If you are assuming that the clues Red+Blue headphones equals the movie title, then I think that superheros flicks are the only movie subject that can be linked to colors. Superheros that are linked to red/blue with upcoming movies besides Cpt. American/Superman/Wonder Woman would be Spiderman or Thor. Since you live in New York and you have spider in your username, I would guess Spider-man.

 

I don't think there are any other superheros with red/blue as their signature color, so if those aren't the answers... then there's no way anyone here will guess it...

Nope. Superman, Superman in French, Wonder Woman, 3D remake of something, and Captain America were all the guesses.
