External, they're like this for the quickrelease, (That the correct term?) which makes the earcup pop off when dropped with ~10kg of force to avoid breaking, depicted here.

X2 I'm sure they'll sound just as incredible as they look.

Interesting that the M-100 has a different connector for the headphone cord than the LP2 does.  Since it extends out, yet has the connector recessed, I'm guessing this will protect the connector on the headphone more.  It also means that cable selection for the headphones is more limited (not all cable connectors will fit in the recessed socket).

I thought the m-80 had a nice balanced sound and the Z02 could really bring out some killer bass, and i hope it'll do the same with the m-100 

 

I'm very tempted to get the M-80 myself, what with all the rave reviews around. I'm looking for a pretty decent all-round headphone with good bass extension and the M-80 seems to fit the bill. till, with the M-100 on the way, I'll definitely hold and see how it fares. The M50 is good for that purpose as an general use headphone but I'm digging the looks of the V-MODAs. :)

 

Something tells me you'll be happier with the M-100 than the PRO700MK2. The latter are really good as basshead cans, but they are not awesome for most other stuff.

yeah that's what I thought, but I 70% of my music will benefit from the Pro700mkII more so than the M-100. Still, I do have the Z02, which will allow the M-100 to suffice for bass heavy music ^^. Idk, I really will have to listen to the M-100's first, if I get a chance.

Mmmh, delicious candy. Also, those hinges look quite tough, damped (applicable term?), and cool in a tidy mechanical way. Kinda but not exactly like how I find pricy skeleton watches fascinating even though I know a cheap but well-tuned quartz watch is more accurate. So I like the look. Obviously it's also practical, I just hope that in person it exudes the quality feel you get from a mechanical hinge and similar moving parts where it moves sexy, cleanly, and smoothly, while also inspiring the confidence of long duability. All that said, if it feels at least as good as the hinges on my old Sennheiser PX-100 that allow that model to fold like eyeglasses, it will feel at that level for me.
Did I mention I just picked up a pair of the Crossfade LP to get acquainted with the V-MODA feel? I'm very impressed, I even made a short video for YouTube to record my first experience, and I've only grown more fond of them over time. Yesterday, I had a party where at the end where we all compared headphones, and the Crossfade LPs came out as the favourite. Pleasing as fine chocolate...

So the M-100 will also have a "white" version?!?!

If so, I'm so getting that one!!! :-p

Yeah, I'm waiting on the M-100 to see if it's something akin to an M50 - great for most genres with decent bass extension. I love the styling of the V-MODAs, so the M-100 is definitely something to look out for.


With that said, a white version will be HOT. :))

agreed except, maybe a little less treble energy and a little more bass energy instead ^^. I do love the white version XD, second up would be black/gold imo

I'm about to swap my M50's for the V-100's (well, as my on the go-can anyway). Apart from the actual listening experience, isolation and noise leakage are the two things going through my mind the most. I don't expect the v-moda's to isolate as well as the M50's; can't wait to hear the differences in real life.

I think you should get them, just because of your name? Lol!

But in all seriousness, based on the Crossfade LPs that have the same form factor (besides hinges) and earpads as the M-100 will, I'm confident saying that noise leakage is very well controlled, and sound will be blocked as well as a pair of earmuffs. Probably better than earmuffs used for construction, just because the pads are squishier and conform to your head for a better seal.

You might lower background noise more with one of the best models using active noise canceling, but you'll still hear sudden sounds like a crying baby as well as passive noise blocking in the V-MoDas, at the expense of active noise canceling adding a background hiss especially noticeable on quiet passages. The NC circuit also distorts the music slightly from time to time.

If you want the best noise isolation and least leakage, there's nothing better than a pair of IEMs, and I love my Etymotics, so "I" wouldn't even bother with NC headphones, and I'm very happy with the amount of isolation and lack of leakage in my Crossfade LPs.

I think those wanting more bass should go with V-Moda's existing headphone: Crossfade LP1/2. the original Crossfade LP has been going for ~$100 or so due to stock clearance as well
 

What I want from the M-100 is bass extension but I don't want MOAR BASS!!!1! If I did, I would buy the LP2. Please Val, keep the bass closer to neutral (though, not anemic) with these ones.

I agree that is what i would like to see. I could have used more treble extension and more bass extension w/ the M80, but honestly, if the M80 had been over ear I would have been super happy with them. I really hope the sound signature isn't too different.
