Yeah, my wallet is so confused, but better enjoying my money than becoming Ebenizer Scrooge!

One of the things I like about the white silver is there is no chipping issue possible with the exposed metal hinges.

off topic but i'm just curious why do people like working out with "headphones" not iems or ear buds but earphones?

 

i see mostly ppl wearing beats and skullcandy at my gym. can't imagine working out with them on, i have my on ear noontecs in the summer with the hot weather (not even moving, my ears are sweating and it gets really uncomfortable)

 

if your working out your sweating so much, the headband, earpads must get drenched.... why not use iems? Aside from sound quality i just find iems more practical while working out

 

why do you think people work out with headphones (especially the m-100, if i had a pair, i would be babying them so much, not sweating on them, especially not working out in them) too afraid of them falling off especially while on the treadmill)

^ because the extra mass of the headphone is a workout in itself to keep on your head.  :D

post #16596 of 20809

I guess it is for the same reason they bought beats: "because it looks nice"

 

I use apple earpods to workout, I am not really into IEM's, I like over ears, they are more comfortable

For me, I want the best possible sound when I work out and I haven't found an IEM that can match the spaciousness and bass impact of my circumaurals.

I wear Edition 8's when working out........leather is easily dried and cleaned as compared to velour. Never liked IEMs much.

After playing with it since yesterday, I noticed that the left wingplate seems to be squeaking whenever I adjust the ear cup. It isn't a big issue, but I have slight OCD in that I want everything to be relatively the same. Will tightening the screws on the wingplate fix the squeaking? I don't want to do anything before asking since I've read of people cracking their wingplates and such by doing so.

 

On another note, is there a specific name (or measurement) for the size of screwdriver that's needed for the wingplates? The ones available to me don't fit so it looks like I'll need to grab one somewhere.

For me, I want to have the best, strongest sound possible when I'm working out. My workouts are pretty heavy and intense so the music gives me that extra edge (I'm not listening to jazz or classical lol)

 

Also, I started off with cheap iem's and because I sweat so much, I never could find a solution I was happy with. They always either fell out, or didn't sound good etc.

 

These days I often wear a towel over my head and put the headphones on that. Obviously it breaks the seal but it does protect them a little more and I still get the big strong sound I need.

I don't know but remember, music doesn't break headphones, extreme listeners do. God, I felt like puking when I read that in the manual.

I just got my M-100(my first real pair of headphones) and I was a little disappointing when I opened the box and saw it had previously been opened. It was kind of weird, there was 3 plastic bags, a little red bow, and the cables in the case were just kind of shoved in there. Amazon agreed to send a replacement that will be here Monday. 

Along with the headphones I bought a Xonar DG, which I found out doesn't really work with the trrs connector on the one end of the cables that came with the headphones. I searched this thread and saw someone recommended flipping the cable around, which works for the cable with the phone mic but not the cable with the splitter because the right angle is thicker. I am just going to order a new cable for the pc and keep the others for the phone, any recommendations on a cable without a trrs connector?
