Hey Val with your permission once the M-100 starts hitting the shelves would you mind to much if I started a proper impressions thread? I'll be buying one myself and it's obvious enough other people on here will be also so I was thinking of putting up a thread where it would be easier for people to research the M-100 instead of having to wade through a 100 pages of chatter. My idea was to start the thread and reserve the first 3 or 4 posts for peoples impressions and I would update the thread accordingly into the threads first 3 or 4 posts as more impressions flow in.

Presignups? As in, pre-orders?

Val,

When and how will we receive the 10% discount for posting pics during the recycling program?  Will it be a code listed here or sent individually to our Facebook accounts? I'm the guy that posted the Beavis (Cornholio) bobblehead with the cut Sony behind-the-ear headphones.  Can it be applied to preorders of the M100?  When will winners from the recycling program be announced?  I'm sure you are incredibly busy with the launch and I have no more questions about the M100, I just know I want them badly.

 

Thanks.

Good stuff Val! I'm interested in how those photo and video shoots came out, and of course what pre signups might imply... Rock on you crazy diamond! smily_headphones1.gif

Presign-ME-up!!

 

*edit* It's insane to me that this thread has nearly 1500 posts for being about a product that isn't yet released! Compare with the M-80 thread that has only a couple hundred more posts... I think this product release is going to boost V-MODA to a new plane of existence here on Head-Fi and elsewhere!!

so when is the m100 coming out?

Well, with all this rep boosting, this can be a great way to get a Kickstarter going for Val's "mother of all headphones" design.

A lot of the posts in here are the same questions that have been asked a million times. I bet if we condensed it it would end up being about 70% less lol

+1, agreed. We've actually had quite a bit of info about the M100 already, even pix and initial impressions on the prototype mentioned in this thread.

I'm still patiently waiting, though. For how much I've fallen for the M80's, I have high hopes for the 100s. And honestly (and I'm sure several will agree with me), I think Val is probably the ONLY person that could develop these that I would trust. I've tried so many cans, and traded them all off. The 80's have kept me enamored, and Val's zeal for his product makes me even more confident in this.

I appreciate the patience... we are working so hard on the product and now doing the ad campaign of the photos, videos of the product...

 

we did a MAD SCIENTIST photo shoot today for a M-100 ad, it's so sick!  here is a sneak preview:

Hyping up can be either good or bad, whether or not a product lives up to the expectations it sets.  I get that the hype will be needed probably to offset the R&D costs for this, though... Especially since Val obviously didn't decide to just put a M-80 driver into a modified LP2 shell (which would have been an easy route to take based on demand).  Totally not downing V-Moda here, either, as I am a rather pleased repeat customer. smile.gif

 

I just hope these can live up to the hype, and deliver $100 of difference (50% price increase) over a pair of LP2's. smily_headphones1.gif

MODERN ROMAN FORUM

I am so AMPED about the input of everybody as we also are vocal about our Italian "Roman" heritage, so in this spirit it is amazing to have a modern forum. Trust me, EVERY one of these thousand posts is running through our team's heads and makes this the first semi-open source headphone for the people as we put all the feedback into the product development.  The customer is truly #1 and I am a customer myself with you!  


As I discussed with Jude, even if we cannot make M-100 appease ALL of the users here that gave input, I'll be sure to make other products that are bulls-eye for the others in the long-term. I don't believe in the user tuning of the product as it always compromises something, but I can make models with radically different sound curves and we are experimenting with our flagship Revolver (which is now 8 years in the making).  

 

DON'T GET TOO HIGH

No matter what, I cannot make the highs spiked as some other brands do, and we never will above 8kHz. As you may know from our own response curves, labs and Fletcher-Munson research that the perception of highs is also relative to the volume that the user is listening.  Therefore, V-MODA always keeps the highs flat and let the user EQ as necessary to prevent hearing loss.  We also never test if we are sick or not feeling 100% as this is critical in perception. In fact this delayed M-100 over a month as I was not feeling 100% for a while so I had to wait it out until my audiogram was up to par.

 

Our team does audiograms a few times a year, and we know if we have hearing loss. It is ESSENTIAL for us ALL that as we get older or are exposed to NIHL that we check our own hearing, get our ears cleaned and EQ if necessary vs buy a headphone that is EQed falsely to our needs.  Tuning the headphone for a wide age group without hearing loss is essential for all of our listening enjoyment vs killing the ears of kids.  EDIT - Also, like Fine Wine we must make sure our drivers are consistent so that we don't spike highs on a single unit.  We strive for <2dB variance which is VERY VERY VERY  tough to do in mass production.  Some headphones have up to 15 or even 30dB variance from unit to unit.  It is astonishing as this even happens with high end brands. 

 

Having said that, the highs of M-100 are "brilliant" and extend very far.  In fact, one of our beta M-100s was ABSOLUTELY flat past 30kHz!
