For them to fit me they would need to be about 2x as deep, but the circumference of them was OK. I don't think that is the problem, it is the depth that they need to improve, I think deeper pads might actually improve the sound as well.

Evshrug, just watched your part 1 unboxing vid, nice work. Great color choice with the matte black. Looking forward to seeing part 2.

Has anyone had a chance to compare the fiio e12 and JDS Labs C5 with the m-100?

One of my hinges on my m100 doesn't click. It affect sound or functionality, just wondering if anyone else had this problem, and if there is a fix

I've had this happen. It doesnt affect sound or functionality. If you want to fix it, you can tighten the hex bolts that are on the inside of the hinge in question. I used a needle nose plier to do the trick

Ahh thanks. Sorry, that was a typo, meant to say it DOESN'T affect sound or functionality. 

 

Not a big deal if it can be easily remedied.

You asked for it, LOL!

I really shouldn't say "a quick unboxing review," because the first part clocked in at 8 minutes. I'll upload the next part once I get back from work, but here's the first:

I hope you guys find humor and enjoyment in my humor and enjoyment of opening these. Sound review to come, AFTER I hear a bunch of good songs through them ;)

I will add, that after, oh, somewhere in 2-3 hours, my ears did start hurting and the pads felt "hard," but to the fingers they were still soft (but warm and kinda moist). Comfort was definitely better with the pads resting on the outer rim of my ear to pin it back a bit, if I let my ear inside then it would touch against the driver enclosure. Adjusting the position helped, as did short breaks. Tom Clancy's "Splinter Cell: Conviction" sounded cool, though I was reminded how echo-ey Dolby Headphone can be processing surround (though it did sound "surround"), because the M-100s seem to be surprisingly detailed. Definitely $300 headphones, definitely a different league from Bose (which we have and use at work) and Beats (also have, though I avoid).

This thread might help:

You may also want to review the E12 and C5 threads for comparisons.

Oh awesome, just saw this post. The matte black is awesome, really looks stealthy, though I like the option to add the flair of the coppery-orange shields. When I do my sound review, I'll have the orange shields on :)

Btw, teaser for part two (which picks up right where the last left off), the headphones did survive falling onto my concrete porch with no visible scratches :)

What's going on with your posts in this thread, Nicholars?  You seem to delete a lot of your previous comments.

 

I've seen your other posts in the Momentum thread and many of them are constructive. I get the impression you don't intend to troll. 

 

Unfortunately, your reactions to what you perceive to be others' negative reactions have sometimes set you up for unnecessary altercations in the past. 

 

Don't despair and don't bother commenting on whatever you perceive to be the emotional content of others' responses. 

 

Here's something to try:  Anticipate good will instead of acrimony.

He's been trolling frequenting the X1 thread too...not sure what the point is really.  He def likes to argue I've noticed.

Mhmm I have.

 

If you had to decide between the 2, the C5 offers a larger soundstage, better instrument separation, cleaner overall sound, more detailed and textured, more forward midrange no channel imbalance, and a deeper bass boost.

 

E12 on the other hand seems brighter than the C5, its soundstage is more congested, and the midrange is warmer and more laid back.

I just spent some serious time with the M-100/C5 combo on a long plane ride. Probably put in four to five hours on the plane and another couple while laying poolside. Very very enjoyable. I cannot compare to the E12 having not heard it but the M-100/C5 combo was a blast. Bass rattling if you so desire but just plain fun. Both the amp and the V-MODAs are new to me but I was very pleased with the quality. My point of reference is my PC system which has an ASUS STX sound card that is usually coupled with a pair of Grado PS500s and some Grado GR-8s I use for portables. Source unit is an iPod Classic (5.5 gen) on the portable side. All the headphones sound better from the C5 and the M-100s sound really good. Bass is controlled, highs are not harsh, mids didn't seem overly recessed as others have mentioned but perhaps could be more prominent. Will spend some more time with them and gladly so. Another bonus is I did not find the V-MODAs uncomfortable at all. Was worried about all I've read but couldn't be happier. I know it's real for some but I guess I'm lucky in that regard.
