post #14806 of 22937

Can someone tell me this asap please .

 

Anyone who has owned the M100 and Momentum...

 

How does the earcup size compare?

 

The width on the M100 looks bigger than momentum but what about the depth?

 

Are the M100 as deep for your ears as the Momentum? (Momentum is JUST deep enough for me and my ears just about fit inside the pads) Anything shallower than the Momentum is going to be too small.

Also is it possible to replace the pads on these?

 

Maybe something like Beyerdynamic velours or something?

 

I have ordered some of these from the amount of reports about excellent basshead and sound quality but I can pretty much guarantee that I am going to find them uncomfortable without new pads or some sort of mods until the XL pads come out. Any ideas?

So how does the M-100's driver size compare with the M50 or the M-80? I plan to use the M-100 on bus but i'm an Asian so my physical body is not so big, not to mention i am very skinny and have a small head so wearing such a big headphone on the bus may cause a little problem biggrin.gif. The M50 are huge on my head, their earcup are litteraly cover half of my face so it's a bit weird when i wear them outside

M50 = 45mm

M-100 = 50mm

Can anyone here compare the M100 to the Lp, I've recently purchased Sony XB600 with Fiio E11 amp and I'm craving more bass. V-moda has refurbished LPs for $100 and I'm wondering if they would be a better grab then the M100.

I was in a similar position to you about half a year ago. I had the XB-500 and had just recently picked up the E11 and was looking to upgrade to a versatile pair of headphones for portable and home use. These, in my opinion, are the best portable headphones for edm sub $1000. I bought my girlfriend the LP so I have AB'd the LP and M-100 many times. The LP has a club sound with lots of midbass kick, recessed mids, and decently clear highs. The M-100 sounds more like a high end 2.1 HiFi system. The M-100 has deep sub bass while retaining plenty of mid bass kick, detailed and juicy mids ( while listening to edm), and clean highs that are detailed but never sibilant. The M-100 is superior to the LP in my opinion and well worth the investment. Many people on here complain about the comfort but honestly if you give the pads about 5-10 hours of break in they are very comfortable. If depth is an issue than do the paper towel mod.

I don't think you could have given me a better response, you told me everything I wanted to hear. Awesome sub-bass and good mid-bass. My only other thing is I love lots and lots of bass, I've even been considering buying a Digizoid Z02 to pair with my E11 for my XB600. If I buy the M100 will I need the Digizoid Z02 to give me the bass I desire. Also what's the isolation/sound leakage like?

I'm a huge bass head, so I also thought about double amping with a ZO2 in the early stages but the E11 on 1 is plenty of bass for home listening and for portable listening setting the eq on 2 is great. You really should try the M-100 with just the E11 for a while and see if that satisfies your bass needs, and If it doesn't then definitely go for the ZO2. I'm currently listening to my M-100 while crammed in a car with my girlfriend on an 8 hour road trip home from the beach so I can definitely give you my impression of sound isolation/leakage. The M-100 isolates fairly well but you will have to turn the volume up to get rid of road noise and background noise. Without music playing with the headphones on you can hear everything going on around you, but with music turned up to 3 on the e11 on low gain, and the eq on 2 all I'm hearing is music. Sound leakage is once again fairly minimal when the headphones on your head, I haven't really bothered anyone yet while listening to music with the m-100 where as with the XB-500 everyone could hear everything that I was listening to. In a completely quiet environment however you will have to turn the volume down to not bother anyone, which is really to be expected.

Are these headphones refined in the mids and treble? I read a lot about the excellent bass for EDM... but if comparing these to other hifi headphones such as sennheiser, beyerdynamic etc. do they have high quality sound?

So, the first time I heard these cans I did not like them and I would not endorse them for EDM music which has vocals. I found the vocals to be recessed and the bass to drown out some of the vocals in the music I listen to. I decided to give it another shot and brought my PA2V2 amp to BH Photo and I really liked them. The bass no longer drowned out the vocals and I found the vocals not so recessed. Now, I just have to wait to get them for a good price because there is no way I am spending $300 on them.

 

As a side note, I am so happy I did not listen to everyone on Head Fi and blindly get the Pro 900s (A lot of people say they are king for EDM). I would never endorse them for EDM music which has vocals, they were worse than the M-100 without an amp and the highs were too shrieking. Just goes to show you how different everyone hears.

I think that the M100 is definitely my next headphone investment, I'm hoping that with the E11 it gives me the brain rattling chest thumbing bass that I'm lusting for. I'm used to 2 10" subs (600w each) and a 1200watt amp. Some people complain about vocals being "recessed" or "muddied". I can drown them out completely if I choose

Are these also good for the medal genre? My XB600 have a hard time with this genre. Also Really looking forward to hifiguy528 review, really enjoyed your other videos on the Sony MDR-XB series

These aren't good for metal but the sennheiser amperiors are great

With the volume turned up a little bit more than normal, would the m100's isolate enough on a plane?

I would get the faders and wear them along with the M-100 for use on plane rides. The M-100 plus faders combo is pretty much total isolation.
