I'm on the edge of getting these.. But idk yet..

 

White pads seems unlikely at this point. Best is to check with V-Moda customer support if they have plans to produce in the future. 

 

For alternate purchasing option, I just checked the Sponsor Announcement & Deals, www.acgears.com is having 10% labour day sale with a coupon code 'labor13' and free shipping over $75. So you can use the savings for XL pads. I think engraving is free when you buy a new pair?

Ok I am posting this again for anyone interested in the NuForce Transcuent cable.

Sound wise it is pretty much the same.

A V-MODA rep told me colours other than black aren't available "at this time". I imagine that Val wants to see just how many people actually buy them and if there is a genuinely high demand, he'll add the other colours. I understand they are more expensive to manufacture than expected, so it makes sense that he wants to ensure they're worth the investment.

I have white M-100s btw and have ordered the XL pads along with a black cable and engraved matte black shields. Hoping it will look good!

Like my one


Oh right. Well i have left them overnight lengthwise on the box they came in which is slightly bigger than the width of my head, but ill try something even wider tonight. When I lay down my headphones like yours, the two earpads still touch.

When you widen the headphones, I would recommend using your hands and actually flexing the band down, to stretch it out, as opposed to the slow-paced version, where you place it over an object.

The question that no one can answer yet is whether the XLs will be a pleasant change from the standard pads for people who find the latter comfortable already. 

 

Since I have no problem with the comfort of the standard pads, I'll be curious to see whether the XLs are even more comfortable for users like me or if they'll simply feel too large. 

 

That's what's held me back from preordering the XLs. I thought I'd let others who truly needed them beta-test them first.

Last time when I beat CoD MW3 in 8 hours straight with my M-100, it started to hurt a bit by hour 6, so this time when OP2 and XL pads comes out, I will be able to tell you for sure.

Hey guys, have been using my m100 for about 5 days now, it was very uncomfortable, my ears were sore just right after 5 minutes, do you guys think getting the XL pads would be much better? I have stretched the headphone until its most! Now its very loosen up when it's around 7 notch high each, but it still hurts after 5 minutes. I really want to get the XL pads but its black! It doesn't match the white M100s I am having, thus it includes a free Faders VIP, is it a really a good earphone?

In my experience, when price matching is used, any other "double dip" discount would go out the window which is understandable from the retailer's perspective as they are in business to make a profit.

None of us really know. I'd like to say "yes" but that is just a guess based on the looks of the pads and my subjective experience.

 

Also the Fader VIPs aren't headphones at all, they are tuned earplugs. Meaning they attenuate the more damaging frequencies at concerts than others [like the extremely harsh highs].

Strange..
Then why are some of us able to get the headphones stretched in under 10 backwards bends?

Here is a response from a V-MODA rep on the color of upcoming XL pads:

Quote:
As of now, we only know that we will have black. There should be other colors available later, but we don't know for sure what they will be.
