Oh man I just read this post from val and I really do hope its still true post #660
Right now the M-100 prototype sounds just like that - its more like a "MLP2-100" with extra ultra-extended treble (its a new driver). It is audiophile mids+highs with LP2ish bass, it is quite intriguing on what to do next... Only me, Jude and my #2 has heard it so far...I absolutely LOVE it, it is by far my fav headphone I've ever heard in my life... but I feel those looking for an M-80 sound may be a tad disappointed as it's bass is still a bit low-end shaking vs as as detailed as M-80. Also, by virtue of its larger drivers vs M-80 the M-100 will perform better amped up. Therefore, the wait will have to continue... I need a Head-Fi focus group, stat! Is there a big enough "medium-bass-head + extended treblehead club"?
Man this sounds perfect...I do hope its more bass than the M80 and a tad less than LP2 from everything that I have been reading! This would be my perfect all around headphone from home use to on the street, with that great design and lowish profile...but I do hope the bass isnt tamed down as this post was on 12/24/11
I think there should be two versions tuned slightly differently, one with slightly more bass and one with slightly less, but I can see how this would be tough being a relatively new/smallish company as your production cost would shoot up but if its at all possible I think that would be an optimal solution rather than try to cater to both markets IMO...but no matter how the M100 comes out I think it will be great!
