V-MODA M-100: Discussion/Feedback, Reviews, Pics, etc. - Page 990

post #14836 of 22990

I have some M-100 on the way in the post, Just hope they fit OK and that modding the pads to fit properly won't ruin the sound quality...

 

Currently have some UE6000 and Momentum as well so I will compare the 3. Didn't like the Momentum at first but it is growing on me a bit, I still think they sound a bit small though and do not have enough soundstage, also they could be a bit more fun. They are technically very good though, after using the Momentum then switching to the UE6000, the UE6000 does sound a bit grainy and low quality.

 

I hope that the M-100 will be a Momentum with a more fun sound signature and bigger soundstage. The UE6000 have a better sound signature / soundstage than the momentum but the quality of the Momentum is a lot better. Hopefully the M-100 will be a combination of the UE6000 and the Momentum!

I found them to be much better than the Momentum; fun, fuller sound, bigger sound stage, punchier bass. If you use an amp I don't think you will be dissapointed.

I have noticed this a few times now with Sennheiser headphones, I have owned a few and eventually sold them all as I found them boring. HD650, IE8 and now Momentum. They are all technically very good but somehow a bit boring to listen to.

Why did you sell them?

Never did own them, but have listened to them for a good amount of time.

Do you think they are better than the Ultrasone 580?

I suppose that the answer to that question is contextual, being based upon the type of music you listen to, and how you enjoy listening to it.

 

For me, I find that the Ultrasone is rather neutral, and although it is capable of pumping out bass and sub-bass to massage my ear drums (the way I like it), in order to achieve that, I have to put the volume uncomfortably loud. In any event, I enjoyed listening to both cans, and in the end, atleast for my music (Trance/Progressive i.e., Armin Van Buuren, Tritonal, Dash Berlin, ect.), I found that the M100's were better, especially amp'd. They were a lot more fun to listen to than the 580s.

 

However, if you dabble in the least bit of computer gaming, then I cannot endorse the M100s at all. This is especially true if playing first person shooters and you absoutely need to know what direction gun shots are coming from or where another player's footsteps are. In that situation, I would fully endorse the 580s.

 

So to answer your question, yes I think the M100s are "better" than the 580s overall, depending on what you are using them for.

Soap and water take it right out, but I've stopped caring since you can't see it unless you take the headphone off. The wingplates and the earcups are prone to fingerprints and scratches, though. That's the price we pay for glossy.

thanks for the help!

i prefer the momentums over the m100 in sound, comfort, and it has more of a luxurious feel, i miss the the hinge, custom shields and the higher quality cable

Ah the 'ol HFI-580. I was seriously considering that when I first joined Head-Fi. That vs the ATH-M50.

I liked the HFI-780: a bit tizzy in the treble, but enjoyable and super comfortable for me. I can't say the same for the PRO900 though. That headphone........just.....no.

Isn't it just amazing how disparate people's hearing is?  I mean that sincerely.  I love my Pro900 as much as any phone I have (check my sig).  I do know a lot of people hate the shrill highs but I don't hear that at all. 

 

Just goes to show us all ....................try the phones and use peoples' input as help but not gospel truth.

Are the "LP/LP2 memory foam pads" on the V-moda website larger than the ones which come on the M-100?  Do they have more depth and space for your ears to fit without touching the cloth? Also do they have any effect on the sound of the M-100?

My white LP/LP2 earpads are actually a bit smaller but I do find them more comfortable and they do alter the sound.

700

 

That being said the colour of the earpad is proposed to alter the sound too. The matte black's earpads have a much stiffer-feeling earpad compared to my super compliable grey ones.

 

 

 

Some food for the thought.

This 1000x. Most people don't realize that everyone has some form of hearing loss, even if we don't notice it. If I have 5dB hearing loss at 2k hz and someone else doesn't they are going to hear that spectrum much differently than me.

 

The trick to advice is finding some one whose suggestion you take and agree with. Then when it's time to upgrade, speak to them so you are pointed in the right direction.
