V-MODA M-100: Discussion/Feedback, Reviews, Pics, etc. - Page 1007

post #15091 of 22821

Have someone tried dirac apps? It would be nice if v-moda partnered with dirac to release a v-moda dirac optimized app for m-100, m-80 and LP series...

Dirac do some frequency optimization but also time domain and phase optimization tailored to a specific headphone to compensate for physical shortcomings so it's not a simple equalizer.

Some manifacturers have started to do that like nuforce (http://www.nuforce.com/index.php?option=com_k2&view=item&id=660:nuforce-hd-player-using-dirac-technology), t-jays (http://www.jays.se/curves) which released their own paid apps in partnership with dirac. I listened to earpods with dirac on and the sound is outstanding, really enjoyable and a great experience... Imagine what dirac could do with v-moda headphones...

I really think Val should consider it...

I had a dream where I was using the V-moda m100 last night. That's about all I can remember, but yeah. The built-like-a-tank factor and eye catching design are definitely cool. I just wish they could the sennheiser momentum driver inside of one, because I think a headphone that's designed to just deliver good bass is stupid, which is why I'll probably not try one.

It's odd that you mentioned NuForce, as I am a big fan of their ICON Mobile AMP/DAC.  Too bad they discontinued the thing as I really think they should make a new version of it.

I’m very disappointed with V-moda right now, I just received my M100 from ups. With an additional charge of $94.18, with all taxes and shipping totalled up I paid $445.47 for a pair of M100s, If I would have known I was going to pay almost $450 I wouldn’t have gotten these.

Blame the government.

Did you get with customs or something? Otherwise, shouldn't you know the price of what you're buying?

V-MODA ships via USPS by default, so he must have paid for 2 or 1-day shipping, plus he may be living where V-MODA has an office and got local taxes.

I ordered them last Tuesday, June 11th with standard shipping to Canada ($21), I thought I might have to pay customs since it was crossing the border but it wasn’t even customs fee. I’ve already emailed V-moda and I’m not opening them unless I get reimbursed a little, if anything I’m just going to send them back. Really disappointed, I was really looking forward to using them.

Just to clarify, you are judging the sound of a headphone you never heard???

 

P.S. I returned Momentum and continue to enjoy the full range of sound, along with standout bass performance, that the  M-100 provides.

Yeah, I got slapped with $52 something in import duties, it blew. I wonder why yours were so high though? I live in NS and we've got 15% tax here, no where else is any higher.

 

Ha, I also got the iBasso D42 recently, marked as USB Soundcard on the box with a $25 declared value. DHL charged $19.77 import duties and brokerage fees... Now the device did actually have a value of $188, but they didn't know that. It's highway robbery...

post #15104 of 22821
That's what part of the charge was, for "brokerage fee" I'm only so pissed off because I didn't expect it.
post #15105 of 22821
I'm somewhat confused. Not familiar with the fees and duty of your country, could you please detail out the breakdown of the costs and by whom?
