Does anyone have experience with prior pre-releases?  Does it really take 6-8 weeks to get your ordered item(in this case xl pads).  Seems like with all the work Val put into developing these he wouldn't offer them on pre-release until they were almost ready to ship and he had some to sell.

Yeah generally it takes about that long. I think 1 year ago to the very month a few people here were waiting for the pre-pre-released M-100s.

i was wondering how is the M-100's isolation from ambient noise

compared to average IEM, and compared to the AKG K518...anyone? :)

Guess the adaptors for the pads I made are no longer needed redface.gif 

 

Does anyone know if ordering the XL pads from the UK means paying customs? or will it be below the minimum?

At $20, they're under the allowance which is currently £15, so you shouldn't get stung for any extra charges.

I've ordered some custom shields and a cable at the same time as the pads though, so I'll be over the limit if they check the package at customs. What really irks me isn't the VAT I'll have to pay, but the greedy handling charge that gets added on. It's at least £8 even if the actual VAT due is tiny.

Even though they are closed headphones, they aren't not that great for isolation.  I've never had the K518s so I can't compare directly, but it's pretty easy to hear what's going on around you with the music off and the M100s on my head compared to something like my GR07 IEMs.  Neither are particularly good at isolation really...not one of my priorities I guess.

So... They're not not-great, or they're not great? Double negatives are confusing.
post #16238 of 22850
lol. Isolation is about average for a closed headphone. It would probably be better if the cups swivelled a bit, so that they sealed better behind the jawline.
post #16239 of 22850
Yep isolation isn't that great. It's ok.

Read the rest of the statement and your confusion should be cleared up.

So does that mean that the M-100 are not suitable for bus-commuting purposes?

and walking around busy streets?

will the volume have to be pumped up to a dangerous level?

Not good for buses at all. Most headphones, in my experience, don't isolate very well from the low drone of a bus engine, especially if you're sitting at the very back

I actually use my rig on the bus every weekday. tongue.gif

iPhone 4S -> FiiO L9 -> JDS Labs C5 (high gain, volume 3/63, bass boost on) is loud enough for me.

Careful my friend, hearing damage lasts a lifetime and cannot be reversed.
