So what's the expected price on the M-100 at this point? $300 for the M-100 with the M-80 remaining $200?

post #1397 of 21250

has anyone compared these to the Audio technica m50s

We calculate MSRP based on our BOM price (bill of materials).  In fact, I don't know M-100's final MSRP until it finishes final validation and we lock it down.  It'll definitely be less than or equal to $300.

 

The VAMP/DAC is also based on BOM and will be ~$600, yet it's well worth it to think different.

Kema, these M-100 headphones aren't out till july. So no, we haven't compared these to ATH- m50s. I'm sure they will be. You could be one of the first!

Grado's are too piercing imo.. :<
However, I didn't love the lp2, and honestly, I don't think even the bass was too great, it moved air, but it didn't have that sub woofer like power. I feel that my M50's can provide some much more powerful bass.

Lol I like how you were able to answer their questions just by quoting the thread.

Kids today. Do they even know what the Dewey Decimal system is?

I know what it is. I think the problem is not knowing how to use the "search this thread" button at the top.

No headphone, without significant bass boost, will ever come close to subwoofer like air movement. I have no idea why people expect a subwoofer when they put bassy headphones on.

the closest I've heard to a subwoofer in headphones though, was my sony xb500 with ZO2 at max. too much bass IMO at that point as they can't do much else to begin with.

I Dunno hisound Popo feels like a subwoofer. But thats an IEM, and its not exactly tight.

you will never get a subwoofer like effect with headphones.

Deep strong bass is felt all over the body. Headphones just can't do this.

I know, I tried XB500 at max level on ZO2.1 (which has a bit bigger bass boost than ZO1 and ZO2.3) with Three 6 Mafia - Late Nite Tip and the bass pressure was giving me a nausea. I started feeling dizzy at the point the bass rose from the 20~40Hz range it plays constantly in this track towards a quite short 100Hz peak (it rises from 20~40Hz to like 100Hz shortly, imagine the low frequency tests that is fast forwarded), my eye sight became slightly skewed so had to take off the headphones as it felt so weird and I was only playing at normal listening volumes (well ok the bass volume probably somewhat higher but the vocals were quite silent, below normal vol listening). True story.

Perhaps maybe we can simulate the experience...

 

 

IDEA! Subwoofer+Amp Leather Jacket. Gives the simulated feel and experience of a subwoofer and amplifies any headphone while plugged through the jacket. Also very fashionable.

 

 

Val, are you listening?

The Skullcandy Skullcrushers have built-in woofers that are battery powered and actually manage to vibrate atop your head at mid to high listening levels. They don't sound great, but the effect is comical in replicating that car sound system feel. And it tickled.

I've actually heard of headsets that have little motors built in to make the earcups vibrate (Like in a cell phone) for deep bass notes....................................... *Looks at Val*

I paid $80 for my LP1s, great deal I think.
