That's odd, they work with my friend's N9. Are you sure that both sides of the plug are inserted all the way?

Mkay. But for good measure the M-100 have now a running time of a few hours with electronic music at middle volume... ;)

 

Next thing ist to buy new covers - the M-100 Shadow defenitely needs some red plates with the V-Moda logo... cool.gif

On that regard make sure you resize the logo with the template.  I was lazy and just use the default V-MODA logo option, and the logo came out a bit too small to my liking.  Nhan has one of my red shield with the logo on it if you want to take a look.

They are. I tested on my friends nokia n8 too, it played but with very bad quality and no bass. maybe i need a software update? I also tried on other non-nokia phones and  my pc, the headphones worked on all of them.

interesting you should say that. other than wanting a general upgrade, part of the reason i got the m-100 was because the dt 770s treble was fatiguing my ears. however, after about 15 minuets with the m-100s, i found that they were just as fatiguing, if not more.

i opened up sinegen and sure enough - ~7.6 kHz spikes by ~4 dB (the dt 770s spike at ~7 Khz by ~7 dB. this is all just my own experience ofcourse. im not making any generalizations or anything). i also have the feeling that from 10 kHz and up theres another increase in volume... anyway, no matter, a few days with sinegen and eq and ill find a way to make them less fatiguing. thing is, i was hoping to maybe use the m-100s portably, there goes that idea... perhaps my ears are more sensitive then others, ive noticed not many people get fatigue as bad as i do...

after bashing the m-100s a bit, i felt i had to give some positive remarks too. because well, i think these headphones have taught me the meaning of some terms i wasnt clear on beforehand. the "clarity" on these cans is amazing! the sound really DOES sound clear and clean. also, i think i have finally come to understand what "tight/controlled" bass sounds like. i believe the dt 770s are indeed "muddier" in comparison.

 

i dont want to say too much. A, because these cans have been reviewed 1000 times and i dont want to be redundant and B, because i have only had a couple of days with my m-100s and i feel like it would be unfair to give any real impressions just yet.

 

all in all, first time i put the m-100s on i felt a significant difference over my dt 770s. im sure ill enjoy getting to know these headphones better, and i hope ill find the right eq settings to tame the fatigue.

Which cable are you having problems with? My HTC One X didn't recognize the SharePlay cable but works fine with the one button cable. I contacted V-MODA about it and they offered to send me regular cable for free.

Could you post a picture of the whole cable? I am interested specially in the volume, etc. part.

 

EDIT: Never mind. I found them:

You can search through the gallery. It is much easier.

With the LP/LP2 pads I have, the bass is decreased, the mids are brought forward a bit, and the highs get more extension and texture, but grainy texture too.

 

Pad size differences:

700

 

 

   They do fit, but I wouldn´t say perfectly. They fit much tighter. I had to use pliers to get all the tabs to grab the base of the pad.

Pliers? Wat....I can take them both with on/off with just my hands within a minute. >.>

Yes for the original ones, not for the LP´s in my case. The LP base is definitely bigger than the M100. Remember that in every industrial process there is dispersion in the dimensions due to wear on the tools and other factors. Maybe you got a smaller part, maybe I got a bigger part, but in my case, entering with the hand is definitely not the case, and believe me, I am pretty familiar with what a tight and a loose fit is.

 

The M100 ones on the other hand, enter pretty well by hand.

I agree on the listening fatigue, low trebles are quite aggressive for me. I also experience that even at low volumes (tipically I listen to 1/3 ipod touch 5g max volume). If you find out a good eq configuration please share with us !

None of these are true for me. All people I've used it with spoke positively about it. As for flexibility, yes a bit. I'm more concerned about rotational capabilities. I wish there was some way to lock it in place rather than having it swing side to side. The flexibilty I can deal with, the rotational I can't as much. It still isn't terrible though. And over all, on my computer it is rather good.
