V-MODA M-100: Discussion/Feedback, Reviews, Pics, etc. - Page 935

post #14011 of 20235

As soon as the European V-Moda distribution is set up (direct, not via Amazon et al) and the XL pads are available I might give them a try at last... Still good looking, though I suspect they are too bass heavy for my taste. Well, only one way to find out I guess...

do i just send back the vmoda m100 after doing a return request?

I need to give final feedback to the factory by THURSDAY!

Curious, that, in the two weeks after this urgent tease, Mr. Kolton hasn't posted a followup.  That usually means he's up to something -- extended XL testing, haps-may?

 

What I find particularly pee-culiar is that no one who might have tested the pads has posted any results. 

 

To those who are considering the matte-black M-100s:  Buy them; I ogle mine.  The orange cable adds that slight shudder of color which should be enough for anyone who appreciates subtlety.

 

I have both black and orange shields; the black are customs, the orange, blank. The black is sleek and subliminal, the orange, strangely pleasing.

 

Be advised that the orange shields are a different shade than the cable. The dissimilarity in textures makes up for that.

I'm guessing that those who did manage to make it to the LA office for the tests must have signed some kinda NDA cos no one (here at least) have given any feedback in the forums.

or they're too busy listening to their new and improved M-100s

im finding that the xba-4, westone w4 and m100s have a similar amount of instrument separation! which is pretty awesome for a dynamic speaker

now, i have a thing with the m-100 bass response. i wonder if anyone else feels the same?

if you look at the frequency response, which can be found here: http://www.innerfidelity.com/content/bassheads-delight-v-moda-crossfade-m-100

 

youll see that the rise in the lower end of the response actually starts at ~500 Hz. bass, atleast according to the head-fi glossary of terms, is the frequencies below 250 Hz. perhaps its because of this that i dont actually feel the bass is very prominent. it doesnt stand out at all. i eq it heavily in order to make it stand out the way i like it. nothing is any louder than the other sounds that its contrasted against, in this case, lower mids.

this isnt to say that i dont like it. not at all! the m-100 have brilliant, tight, well controlled fantastic bass which i love dearly. but i wouldnt say its accentuated as strongly as most people seem to think.

or maybe they're just not very susceptible to equalization? am i talking nonsense? does anyone else feel this way?

id say that its nonsense!(no offense) you might need to let the pads break in to your head shape! i happen to be a bass freak and no headphone comes close in bass presence!

it could be nonsense, yes. yet still, as good as the bass is, i felt it was at the same volume as the rest of the music, perhaps slightly elevated... it didnt hit me in the face, lets put it that way. with the dt 770s, the bass was muddier and less textual, but it stood out. there was music, and there was a bass line. with m-100, its all together, and i have to eq the bass way up in order to get the feeling of a really strong bass line (and i listen to music that has plenty of bass in it. such as clubroot, truth, hol bauman, you name it...). im just a sub bass enthusiast, nevermind me... it was only a thought. doesnt matter anyway, thats why equalizers were invented =]

As I said in one of my previous posts, these cans have a boost of near 7-8db on the bass compared for example with Jaycar Pro Monitor. This is something Tyll already said in his review in innerfidelity, and my experience is the same. That's plenty of bass...

I don't really hear them as a bass head can. To me, they sound accurate with every genre. Trance music is supposed to have a thump for example, and these deliver. Any less and they'd be too bass light.

The bass in my eyes never crowds. It's just deep and pleasing, but never bass heady, in a sense the music in my opinion has just enough bass to be enjoyable, but not too much to have to turn it down.

 

I've heard bass head style cans, and these are not in my view, but that is a good thing.

 

I've had them a long time, so that view is accurate. To my ears at least.

Wait till you get to summit-fi headphones. You'll be in for a surprise. ;)
