post #14566 of 20985

trying my cmoybb with my m-80s right now and are they supposed to add this much rumble even without bass boost?

 

trying to make sure i don't have the volume turned up more than i normally do but i'm pretty sure there's a difference.

 

also not sure if i really like it. :\

That doesn't mean I am not in love with them thought. biggrin.gif

 

It was just funny to read because I was really wondering how bad they could be, I've got a few flights coming up and it's on my mind right now. I mean, the vibe going there was like the were useless, so it sounded even funnier when SpiderNhan chimed in.

 

Anyway, I get where you were going with it. I also pull the long haul flights when I fly, either to Japan or China, so ~12-14hrs in one sitting. I demoed a pair of QC15s and they blew my away with the NC. Like that was impressive! But they're too dainty for me, and I don't like the high pitch that NC causes. I can always hear the ringing from it in the background, so up until now I'd take just pure noise isolation rather than NC. If there was one that I didn't get that feeling from I'd take a good look at it. Plus like SpiderNhan also said, I don't mind a little pinch of outside noise, just so I don't feel too disattached.

I'M BAAACKKKK...

 

Full update coming tomorrow night and I'll ask a few members to see if there are any questions.  For the XL cushions, we are on the third round now as the first 2 didn't improve as much as we wanted.

 

 We have been extremely laser focused and working 18hr days on expanding Europe distribution into almost every country, supply chain, customer service, 4Q 2013/2014 product Industrial Designs, as well as the Munich High-End audio show and launching the new V-MODA Milano office.  Not to mention Karl and I learning the Italian language and EU laws.  

 

Taking off back to Germany for the second time in a week now to finalize the market plan, they really love the M-100 Matte Black and especially it's CliqFold hinge engineering and the Vamp Verza!

 

Ciao!

X2 Thanks for the update Val!

i have done a couple 10+ hour flights with my LP2(my m100 airplane test will happen next week) and probably about 20 other flights ranging 1-6 hours. i am a frequent flyer and i dont have any noise canceling cans anymore i had QC15s which i actually wore the pads down to shreads and eventually the band snapped after 6 months(im pretty rough on my portable stuff) i guess im pretty resilient to engine noise but ive booked seats sitting right next to the engine before and had no problems hearing my music over the drone. i can even hear the bass. one time i forgot my e11 and only played from the unamped sony a series and could hear everything st 60% volume. i however am not saying that they will block all engine noise... but they block a lot of it... i would say it makes the sound of airplane engines less annoying.

My problem is not that I cannot hear the music. I have pretty sensitive ears so I usually do not listen to music really high except for some rare occasions. I for sure don´t need an amp with any of my headphones for other reason different than properly driver them. My point is, when you are in a plane you tend to try to eliminate the background noise by cranking up the sound, which might result in damage in your ears at some point. Probably not when you do it once, nor when you do it twice, but at some point you start losing hearing. I only said that V-Moda´s are not the best option isolation-wise if you are a very frequent traveller. 

 

If I were to buy some headphones right now as a frequent traveller, and I wasn´t talking about noise cancelling only. There are other options. If I were to recommend headphones for flights I might give a chance to these:

- Beyerdinamic DT770. (35db apparently)

- Beyerdinamic Custom One Pro.

- MrSpeaker Mad Dog (as Miceblue already mentioned).

- Vic Firth Stereo Isolation.

- Extreme Isolation EX-29.

- Ultraphones High Isolation (29db)

- Remote Audio HN-7506 (45db)

- Bose QC15 (some people may not like them, they are an option out there).

- Or... some IEMs 

- And many others..

 

I just don´t care that much about sound quality in a plane, I care more about my ears. I don´t know, I can live 10h without extremely good sound quality.

 

Note: I suppose the numbers of db are the max isolation at some given frequency. Not average or nothing like that. Of course the best way to compare would be to see an isolation-frequency plot for all of them.

I would add the HD-25-1 ii and Beyerdynamic DT1350 to your list as well. I found those two isolate much better than the M-100 in a noisy environment. They are definitely more isolating than the Custom One Pro.

I agree, just trying to limite the list to circumaurals, as I cannot stand supraaurals, but those are really good options if you like them.

He's on the third revision. He can't give a date when he doesn't have a product he's willing to sell. I remember following the M-100 thread from February 2012 and reading about the June 2012 release date that stretched and stretched and stretched until a handful of us finally got the PPU M-100 which were sent out in late August/early September before eventually reaching the actual release in December.

I find that Val doesn't keep to dates and, from my experience with the quality of his products, I hope he never does.

Yeah, that's probably smart since we'd all be asking when the target date came up "where's my stuff".  Good point.  It's better to get it right than hit a date.
