thanks for the link =]

I mean the ends of the audio cable may scratch your shields if they're bouncing around inside your bag.

Haha Thats what I do during college, I take off the cable and put it in a seperate compartment now. My shields have minor scratches on it now, but the headphones are built like tanks.

It also seems like a lot of M-100 owners live in NYC, is there ever going to be a meet up? I'd definitely come down to meet you guys since I'm only a noob and starting to get into audiophile scene.

I might be purchasing the FiiO e17, it will be my first dac/amp combo. Is it worth it? does it make big improvements in sound for the m100. It will be a big investment for me. Sorry if this question is repeated :)

E17 should be a good beginner DAC/amp combo. It'll probably make the M-100's a little cleaner-sounding and open-up the soundstage a bit.

You could try looking into a Digizoid ZO2 portable subwoofer headphone amplifier. :p

Shadow! Good choice.

Do it! I can't think of anything that competes at that price point!
The only thing that comes to mind is the ibasso dzero(it has a better dac aperently, but not as good of an amp section, and a lot less features)

cheers! thanks mate

Currently I have the Logitech UE6000.... I want some headphones mainly for EDM with nice bass.

 

I paid £100 for the UE6000 and could buy the M-100 for about £230.... Do you think the M-100 are worth the extra money for genres like EDM and general sound quality? I want some headphones with fun sound signature that are amazing for EDM. UE6000 are good but I think the M100 may be the better EDM can? Are they a big jump in treble and bass quality from the UE6000? Also a bit worried the mids / lower mids may not be very good on the Vmoda?

 

I was also looking at the Sennheiser momentums but I think they may not be the best for EDM? I plan to get one pair that are amazing for bass and EDM and then another pair at some point for other genres, movies, games etc.

I was in pretty much the same position as you, looking for a nice pair for my mostly EDM music collection. I demoed the Momentums, they're very well built, fairly comfortable, and sound alright. But for EDM the bass really isn't there in them, and overall I was left with a "meh :-/ "  type reaction. Beyond that, personally my ears were too big for those terribly small earpad holes... Based on the reviews from here I went ahead and bough a pair of M100s and they didn't disappoint. I'm very impressed with them, the soundstage is huge, the bass you can literally feel it's that impactful, and it still remains tight an controlled, and the rest of the sound is great. Super good for EDM and pretty much everything I listen to, which is pretty much everything from EDM->orchestral.

Momentum is not the best for EDM.  Check out Sony MDR-X05 or MDR-X10.  UE6000 are also better than Momentum for EDM.  I have not had a chance to open the M-100 yet.  I hope to do so this weekend.

I ordered some momentums and I think I will just keep both the UE6000 and the Momentums because they are probably good for different genres. I will see how they compare and post my impressions because I am sure a lot of people are looking at these headphones at the moment. I think I will give the V-Moda a miss for now because although the bass and treble sound interesting I can 90% guarantee these will be uncomfortable for me. Shallow cups + tight clamp = Not good for my ears... Maybe when they release the XL pads I will give them a try because however good they sound, if they are uncomfortable then they are useless.

Do not forget that this is head-fi and is famous for over exaggerating the differences, both good and bad, between things. If you had a particular persuasion then you'll take what you will from the feedback, but don't go too far with it without trying. I have tried both products and have both an oversized head AND big ears. The M100s are fine; many, many hours of comfortable, non-stop listening so far!

 

The Momentums are basically a large pair of supra-aurals and the M100s are a smallish pair of circum-aurals. All you need to do, just as I did, is stretch the headband on the M100s a little, and boom, perfect fit with perfect clamping force. It doesn't damage them and can easily be corrected. Viva los metal-headbands!

 

The earpads, I had a worse time with my Sennheiser HD 25-i-IIs. These ones aren't bad and just as with any headphone, after a little adjusting, do the job nicely. 

 

I can see you've already committed to your decision, but I just wanted to try and round out your take of "shallow cups + tight clamp" from a first hand type situation.
