Will keep that in mind:)

Some Oyaide jacks have a little platform at the base of the 3.5mm tip to give it a bit more length and small size so it can fit into small sockets, or the common iPhone case issue.

That might work, or just get one of those jack extensions.

Not the force that the M100s give you but the tightness and hitting all the low notes and frequencies (as long as they're amped properly).

 

I play my share of EDM, hip hop, and screwed and chopped music on the MDs also.

 

I also agree with Anak to say that I wouldnt wear the MD's outside. And they're not the cutest headphones on the market... Okay they're downright ugly LOL BUT .... They are SUPER comfortable and they sound amazing.

 

I love BOTH my M100's and MD's


im sure the quality is good. but can you get enough volume? if you eq 15 dB of sub bass into the mix, would it rumble? would your eardrums tremble and vibrate with sheer SPL? as far as ive gathered from other owners, the MDs just arent capable of creating such amounts of bass

Funny, I was of the opposite opinion. I wasn't all that impressed with the P5 or P3 for the price. Likewise for the C5 which sounded good to my ears but only marginally better than the vPulse which is 1/2 the price. B&O on the other hand has some seriously impressive stuff. Have you heard the premium surround sound system that they make for Jags and other luxury cars? The sound is just orgasmic. I've also always wanted a pair of BeoLab 5, but there's no way I'd spend $15k on a pair of speakers, especially when a pair of Mirage OMD-28 can be had for 1/4 of that. In any case, the H6 sounds very good, at least on the level of M-100 and Momentum technically.

Ahhh, got it!

So I guess people have dropped the M100s and this is what happens!?

It's nice if you can put it back with no problems I guess.

Off topic: I think the B&W sound is not for most people, but I just happened to like how they tune their products.  This is why I hope to trade up from my Nissan GT-R with its grabage Bose system to a Jag XKR-S or a Maserati GT with their B&W system.  Of course I am open minded and there is a B&O shop near me, so I guess I will try to go demo the new H6 when they get's it.

Yeah it's a nice thing to have since I have dropped mine once or twice. I actually pop mine out every once in a while to clean since the earcups do squeak sometimes.

As subjective as 'enough volume' is ..... In my opinion the new MD's have enough. You can get enough bass to rumble your ears and if you pu t your hands on the outside of the phones you can feel the thump coming through the earcups. Do you get as much SPL as the M100's ? Absolutely not, and it takes more volume to get those levels of SPL (I'm running my E12 with the Bass boost turned on) but without a doubt you get the bass if you push it, AND the nice thing about the MD's, is that they can handle all the power you want to push at them. The same volume setting on my M100s+E12 would be unbearable. With the MD's it still sounds good (albeit very loud)

^ yeah with the new pads, the Mad Dogs have some really nice rumble
This song sounded quite awesome with the Mad Dogs, but I think the M-100 has better instrument separation and soundstage width. The Mad Dogs have a similar congested sound as the LCD-2 I tried.

Had my M-100s for almost a week now and loving the fun sound signature. Just wondering if there are any more mods apart from miceblue's or digitalfreak's that can increase comfort? I've tried both and they do seem to alleviate the comfort issue partially, but after 30 minutes or so I can feel the issue coming back and after an hour I have to take them off and re-adjust them or take a 5 minute break. I'm likely not going to return them and wait it out for the XL pads since these will be my portable cans anyways, but just need a mod that can increase the comfort more than the other two to hold me over until the new pads are released.

Leave them stretched out over a box or stack of books overnight and when you're not using them.

It's not the clamp that bothers me, but rather the issue with earpad depth and my ears touching the drivers because of the pads deflating when worn for extended periods. They get real sore and red if I have them on for over an hour.

I originally got this too.  After a little time with them, OK, a few weeks, they cease to bother me.  My ears are smaller though ;)

Some laugh but putting a length or rope (1/4" or 3/8") under the pads all the way around keeps your ears from hitting the driver cover.  As well, this mod allows you to tuck your ears under the pads and seriously helps.

Thanks for the opinions.  Will have to check them out myself I guess, found out they have them in stock in central London, so will test them against the M-100.  

I am also of the opinion that B&O sound systems are generally better than those from B&W, but those are price tags I don't really wish to spend now I have a rugrat in the stable.biggrin.gif

 

I guess what attracts me to the H6 is the prem materials and what looks like good build quality.  Still reckon M-100 has the best overall package in terms of portability, build quality, sound vs cost.  Hard to beat imo.  That is until M-180 arrives!
