Thanks everyone. Sigh... Too bad... I like the design of the shadow more than the matte black one, but I don't really like the material around the headband of the shadow one. Consequently, deciding between those two headphones starts again.

Could someone please take a detailed picture of the headband(s)?

Matte black: leather-like textured pleather

Shadow: black micro-suede with red stitching (suede is the material used in some furniture where you can make drawings by drawing patterns in 1 direction in the material)

White silver: spotted pleather

Are the MDR-1R's portable?  They look like they'd be monsters to haul around!  Tyll at innerfidelity just did a review of the entire line up and the MDR-1R and the MDR-1RBT are now Wall of Famers!

They're actually smaller than I was expecting it to be. The photos of the earcups make it look gigantic.

 

In terms of portability, I actually prefer the form-factor of the 1R since it lies flat. Folding flat makes it easier to slip in a bookbag/backpack since it takes up less volume in the bag (my M-100 tends to fall to the bottom of my backpack and creates a big "hole"), and it's easier to wear around your neck if you tend to do that since the earcups don't interfere when turning your head.

The Logitech when NC on has an overpowering bass, the overall I think craigster said sounded darker. But it sound a little more lively compared to the m100. They are a lesser headphone. They are not as detailed, the M100 is far superior. I have listened to both for hours and heard the difference. The UE6000 has less soundstage, has more of an in your face compared to the m100.  Compared to other $200 headphones, the m100 destroys since m100 on all sounded more detail, but I noticed most of the time the m100 sounded a little dark. I actually had a chance to listen to the momentum and I noticed that the m100 is better, may be because of the source but I did notice that it was kind of bass shy on the momentum compared to the m100. Or probably I am used to the bass of the m100 XD. But it sound more lively and brighter, and it I guess was more balanced. It is a good headphone. But it didn't fit my liking. I took along time before I have purchased the M100, and asked bunch of people (thanks Miceblue & Criagster)

Bass shy ain't objectively a bad thing. And objectively, the momentum are better. But, here is the catch, I still bought the M-100 and I don't regret it! Because subjectively, I preferred them.

Also, I was talking about the UE6000 with the NC off, obviously. And honestly, you repeated the same thing I did. The m-100 have a more defined treble and tighter bass (and yes, more soundstage). But, the UE6000 is 100$ cheaper and doesn't sound like it's 100 cheaper. The difference in the sound quality is small, while the price isn't.

I see what you are getting sound wise It is about preference, with the NC off, I kinded sounded bland to me. UE6000 is a good value, and the M100 is a better since that $100 in sound wise I guess I see why you said they are not worth $100, but actually I think the tighter bass and treble is alone worth the $100, plus the soundstage when gaming adds a boost. I feel there is a good amount of difference. Also the features of the M100 makes it worth the upgrade. The NC on the UE6000 is decent, I have the bose QC15 so I have a huge standerd for NC, but mainly they added NC since it will act as an added amp and bass boost. I noticed that the m100 had more bass when amped.

The momentum, objectively doesn't sound better in my opinion  since I guess the mids are the same between the two. I just heard some like 30 mins ago from a friends house. Actually I believe that M100 has better treble extension than the momentum. 

 

A youtuber named Dale Thorn said he preferred the M100 over the momentum once eq'd it could sound nearly identical to the low end and the M100 provided a better treble extension on the Momentum. He said he gave the Momentum away. 

 

 

I get it that bass shy isn't a bad thing, I agree it is all subjective to the user. Thanks for your insight :)

Does the M-100 sounds good with Pop/ Ballad/ Instrumental music? I own the M-80 and I love their sound so much. However, I've been listening to them for quite a while, so I decide to try for a new thing, and it's M-100. But the thing I worry about the M-100 is the mid cause from what I have heard, the M-100's mid is kinda laid back, recessed, which is a problem for those kind of music. I like detail, warm sound of the M-80 but I want more bass

The M100 does very well with pop and all the genre's you mentioned, If you like the m80 you will definitely like the m100. It is a huge upgrade in my opinion.

Thank you for your answer. I like the M80 so much, imo they're better than HD25-II ( i find the HD25 sound kinda boring and they have many flaw too) and the DT1350 (they're actually very good but not as fun as the M-80). Accessories and design are another things i like about V-Moda's headphones. If the mid is not too recessed then it's ok for me. I'm just afraid that M-100's mid is as recessed as the IE80's mid, which i can't listen to.

Don't worry it is minor recession, the reason why people said the mids are recessed is that the bass is more prominent  A simple eq will fix it. The M100 is a great can, don't worry! If you have any questions just ask, I took a long time to research before I buy. Plus I have the M80 so I could understand where you are coming from.smily_headphones1.gif

I agree with you in every single word. I think they are highly eq´able, and you can get the sound signature you like out of this cans. Highly recommendable if you are willing to pay the 300$.

Kind of off topic, I wish there was a Headfi iphone app. Sorry for any incorrect grammar use and structure. It is very hard typing in a mobile keyboard. Plus I hate when I double post.

 

Hey Jude, Dont let headfiers down, (Have someone make an app :D) 

 

 

 hopefully someone gets my beatles reference :)

There is a mobile version via internet browser, and there is a thread for suggestions: http://www.head-fi.org/t/638016/mobile-version

 

The mobile browser works fine for me except for when I multi-quote and I can't find where the quotes end via BBCode editor.

Guys...when you fold up your M-100's, is one cup higher than the other? Because when I fold mine up, they aren't exactly lined up. I hope it's just the headband still being tight from being packaged...

How far off are they?  Do you have a picture?

Double seconded!

 

The cans don't lack mids in any way (and I also have the HD598, so I know mid centric phones), but the bass and lower treble are bumped.
