Some food for the thought.

 

I am confused about which pads are in the picture, are they both LP2 or is one the M100?

 

I need whichever pads are as deep as possible to fit my ears until the XL pads come out....

 

This is the reply I got from V-Moda when I asked about the XL pads release date  "We should have them available for purchase by end of summer, early fall."

 

What is the differences in sound with the stock pads vs the LP2 black / white pads? Are there big differences or very small ones?

Oh sorry. There are no white pads available for the M-100 yet so the white one is the LP/LP2 pad and the grey one is the white silver M-100's stock pad.

 

The LP/LP2's pads are shallower, but they're stiffer than the grey ones so my ears actually don't touch the driver as much, so it's less bothersome for me.

 

There are pretty distinguishable differences between my earpads. The white pads make the bass less in quantity and are a bit looser-sounding, the midrange is bumped forward a bit in presentation, the treble becomes a little more grainy, and the soundstage widens and instruments have more space between them. However as mentioned, it might be due to the different coloured earpads.

Can anyone help me decide between a V-Moda M100 or a 1964V3 T_T

Why would you consider a headphone over a CIEM? They're quite different.

post #14855 of 22845
So after a ridiculous amount of time spent pondering I'm ordering my M100 next week. Can't wait

So is there any news on the revolver?

What's the main difference between them? I'm looking for an upgrade for my Gr07

From the GR07? The M-100 sounds more congested, the highs are less fatiguing, and the mids are withdrawn. The M-100 has better bass extension and more presence though. The V3 is a mid/bass oriented earphone like the LCD-2 or Mad Dog + Alpha Pad but with detailed highs and more air between instruments.

So the V3 is more similar to the Gr07 and the M-100 abit of another type of Sound signature?

I would say the V3 would be more in your ballpark of sound signature if you like the GR07.

The codename of V-MODA's headphone with swivel earcups.
post #14862 of 22845

And no recent news on the Revolver... I would not hold my breath for a release in the near future...

Nevertheless the non-rotating cups are much less of a problem to me with the M-100 than they were with the M-80: over-ear sits quite flat (i.e. not angled as on-ear), so I'm not missing additional adjustment possibilities. Though that will not be the only differentiating feature of the long-time coming Revolver I guess.

Ah-ha, thank you for that. I had read something about that a LONG time ago, but I haven't seen a word of it since then. 

 

I was however thinking about exactly that on the M100s when I first got them. I had much larger Audio-Technica W1000Xs before and those cups rotated and man were they ever comfortable! As soon as I got my M100s I was thinking how they'd be better if they could too. But since owning them, I don't really find the need for it, they're pretty comfortable and I'm happy with pretty much everything about them. Well, minus how my custom shield came out... Man those looked bad. Happy with the stock matte ones, though :-)

While doing parkour last night my M-100 flew off my head. I felt them slipping away like a hat being blown off by an approaching 6 train, but with both my hands holding onto scaffolding, my body sliding and spinning beneath that multi-tiered, metal skeleton, I was helpless. I grasped the audio cable attempting to yank the headphone back into my hands and in that effort I was only partially successful. I managed to rescue the audio cable. The M-100, however, disengaged and continued spiraling towards the cemented sidewalks of New York City. With a surprisingly gentle 'plop,' and to my absolute horror, they hit the ground popping the left ear cup off of its yoke.

I rushed to collect the remains of my fallen comrade, to reassemble it, to once again make it whole. In a way, it has never looked more complete. There is a reason why the metal plates gracing the sides of our M-100s are called shields and last night mine did exactly that. I wear my scratches with pride.
