I feel the external top part of my ears touching the pads as well. To be honest, I found out that it is uncomfortable for me during the first 5 to 10 minutes. After that time, I suppose the pads and my ears get warmer, and I feel much better comfort. Again, It's gonna be up to you. I use them with the softie mod though, which already expand the room for your ears gradually, so...

OK, so it's a spacer under the pad.  I do that with my Q40 pads for clearance.  Good idea.

Basically like the paper towel mod with wire wound around about 2-3 times so you create a circular "spring" that eventually stretches the pads outward. I took the softee off the other day to put a new one on and the pads kept there stretched out shape and had rediclous amounts of ear room

Ashade, what is your impression on how the softee mod affects the sound?
post #14603 of 21200
I procured a pair of sennheiser ie8s yesterday and the lp2 with the softee mod+dynamat.... The sound is impossibly similar with a little less sparkle on the highs with a slightly colder sound ! I don't think I can stop myself from doing this with my m100
Jeebus help me. It might be worth voiding my warrantee...

white m-100 waiting at home for me.  gonna be a long 3 or 4 hours before i get back.  can't wait!

Looking forward to hearing your impressions of the m100's, I'm still on the fence about them mainly due to the price. If you could comment about comfort/isolation it would be greatly appreciated! smily_headphones1.gif

The thing is that I tend to eq a lot,  and I'm really bad at this but I feel the bass becomes a little bit less present making them a little bit more neutral. It's very subtle thought, I mean, the bass drops like 1or 2db or so which out of a boost of 8 is like... nothing. XD

post #14607 of 21200

first listen, burial's untrue (always a good barometer for headphone quality).  fit is fine so far but as i was afraid of these are pretty strained by my gigantic head.  not nearly as bad as the m-80s though.  bass surprised me as i assumed it to be emphasized but more subtly.  still it seems pretty well controlled and not loose and melting into everything all over the place.   title track is beastly.  good sense of space/positioning though.  i'm bad at judging soundstages but so far it doesn't seem too odd sounding and pretty wide open.  surprisingly good detail as well.

 

my ears aren't QUITE as trained as others here so the differences between this and the m-80s aren't immediately evident besides the reverberating bass and the surprising micro-detail.  time will tell though.  midrange (vocals) don't see as compromised as everyone made them out to be.

 

this may be the start of a beautiful friendship :)

 

e: do all vmoda headphones have these weird bumps on the top side of the headband about an inch or two up from the plastic wings/whatever they're called/where the arms extend out?  it's very subtle but noticeable (if you're feeling it)

i'm thinking i may like these more than M-80s already (VERY early judgement i'm aware, lol)
