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. 

Ah, yes the swivel does get annoying. A locking mechanism would have been a good idea, I think, but then it would incompatible with other headphones such as the M-80.

Silly question, but is your line gain set to min, by any chance?

I didn't have any trouble with the prototype cable

It might just be the integrated audio on my mobo, cuz the headset volume is low too

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 !


this is the settings i used yesterday (nevermind the bass boost, look at the treble range):

 

 

 

everyday, until i feel ive got it right, ill go into sinegen and sweep for frequency spikes. the reason for doing it once a day is to try and avoid expectability bias as much as possible. also, finding the exact center of the spike, together with the correct Q is quite a challenge.

no. lowering the mids and highs, and then turning the volume up is the way i bass boost. notice the null and roll off that i created at ~7.6 kHz. thats what i wanted to show sdonati84 who asked to see the setting i used to ease the fatigue that the m-100 caused me. this is one of the reasons i think im overly sensitive to treble, a 4dB peak isnt very much, and yet it hurts my ears terribly after as much as 15 min. i also have a 2nd instance of electriq open at the same time, boosting the bass even more. this is so i can maintain a low listening level, while still having head rattling bass. if i listen at even a moderate listening level, the treble cuts my ears like a knife... 

 

edit: this isnt the m-100s fault, i did the same with my dt 770s, which have an even bigger treble peak btw.

Ah ok. I don't have this problem luckily but experience the "treble knife" sometimes in some tracks. It's like contracting the tongue-neck-muscles and "closing" the ear channel. Funny effekt though...

Any update on the status of the XL pads?  Also, does anyone know how flexible V-MODA is with exchanging the M-100's for a different color?  I got the white silver M-100's in the mail about a week ago and I still have all of the packaging and plastic wrapping like new and I e-mailed support to see if they would let me exchange them for a matte black pair.  Has anyone else had any luck with an exchange like this?  Thanks in advance!  Also, seriously can't wait for those XL pads, Val.  Hope to hear something soon!

Someone is asking:

I am looking to buy these headphones in UK but cant seem to find an official retailer and i have problems when buying headphones off of amazon about the warranty. Whilst watching a unboxing review i noticed that the warranty came in the box and you simply had to activate it. Does the warranty come with the headphones and does it matter it i buy it from amazon? Any help would be great thanks!!

 

I'm guessing the answer is yes, but do you guys who live in the UK know for sure?

Is it open? They only exchange it if it is sealed and unopened.

i'm sure it wouldn't be a problem. you would just have to pay return shipping.

 

considering their return policy, if they say no to exchanges, that would be incredibly silly as you can just return it and rebuy.

That's what I was thinking too, haha.  Thanks for the heads up, though!

I ordered a pair of Matte M-100's, and gettings buyers remorse. Please convince me why they are better than the Momentums smily_headphones1.gif.

I'm in a very similar situation. But I keep telling myself that the m100 are much more solidly built and have more "fun" tone. Heh, I'll see, but I'm sure I'll love them.

Yeah, for that kind of money you always ask yourself if it was worth the investment. For me this answer is "Yes!"... ;)
