I don't usually get more than an hour of portable use with headphones anyway, lol. So I agree with you too.

Still loving my M-100's. Comfort issues zero and am still having a blast listening to them for at least 3 hours a day. For all those people who are having comfort issues, it'd be interesting to hear what they think are the most comfortable HP's they've listened to. Honestly, I tried the Sony MD-1R and they felt like nothing was on my head.
Well, my ears get a bit sore after an hour, and then I need a break, but I'm fine after the break. Most comfortable headphones for me were my Audio Technica ATH-AD700, after I bent the headband arcs to better angle the earcups to my head. They were so light weight, clamped lightly, didn't keep heat contained, didn't cause headband soreness; the only issue was the velour started to get itchy or if I wasn't paying attention they would slide and my ears would touch part of the driver cover... Both issues mainly showing up after 3 hours of use, several times while gaming I used them without noticing discomfort for 8 hour marathons.
But they are too big, and perhaps too purple, to wear outside.

BUT, that's just 1 characteristic to look for in a headphone though.
I still think the M100s are KING in portability!
Couple that with a good price, good sound, etc. and it's a pretty good buy... but for some (i.e. ME), I rank comfort almost as high as sound reproduction ;-)
BTW, what is this thing about "ejection" I read a few posts back?!?
Lol, I dropped my M-100 on the concrete porch immediately upon opening the case for the first time (you'll notice it in my unboxing video!), and perhaps because
the earcup ejected, nothing snapped, cracked, or dented. It was easier to put back together than a new roll of toilet paper!

It's nice if you can put it back with no problems I guess.
Yeah, no problems. I would rather easily pop an earcup back into the metal "yolks," than have cracks and snapped pieces.

Do you think of Call of Duty? I read your post and thought of CoD4 Search and Destroy.Edited by Evshrug - 7/16/13 at 9:49pm
