Just fill up the warranty form in V-Moda's website. They will give you instructions. I had mine shipped from Malaysia directly to their HQ in LA.

Thanks TJ. Seems like I have no choice but to send it back to V-Moda. But lesson learned, when buying at the store esp for items that are so called "controlled" as there are fake items out there, open it right away, inspect and test. Ask how to claim warranty, replacement and return policy too.

Hey, I'm worried that I might have gotten a fake m100 b/c I don't think my vmoda came with a registration code. Is there any way to check if it's real? Thanks

I believed credit should be given when it is due. Great Job V-Moda on releasing the XL pads to addressing comfort issue and thank you for taking into consideration of our comments and ideas . Well done Val .

 

To sum it all up not much changes in terms of sound quality apart from what have been mentioned here . Sounded a ted bit airy ... and I mean just a slight bit which to me is ignorable . Which can be a good or bad depends on personal preference . I personally think its a plus.

 

Also would like to thank miceblue for the youtube video and comments .

 

Cheers.

Did the place where you got it happen to send it in a Casio box?
Anyway, there's a SN sticker on the inner side of the headband, above the left cup.

So they don't allow returns period?  I would probably avoid shopping there in the future.  I would also send the details of your experience to V-MODA so that they are aware of the practices of their dealers.

I think the shopping experience really varies from country to country, especially in Asian countries.

I was wondering if anyone came across an IEM with similar sound qualities of the M-100?  I'm using and iPod w/ Verza listening to ALAC files.  I love my M-100 but sometimes I just gotta travel light.  Thanks!

Yay! My package arrived. The pads are incredible, very comfortable and the different acoustics improve the sound by my tastes. I use these headphones ALOT, every day for several hours, and my ears were too big for the previous pads so this was an enormous improvement for me. There is an added punchyness for the upper bass range and the sub-bass is less "rumbly" feeling, which was slightly uncomfortable over long periods of time before the XL pads. The highs feel a little brighter and the mids a tad less recessed now. Also, the soundstage feels quite larger, and the pads isolate sound a tad less than the previous ones. I like the new sound alot, and the comfort is a world apart from the previous pads, for me.

 

 

I got new shields to boot, and this time I've made a very complicated, dithered, double sided design for them. I chose aqua blue, but it wasn't available, so I went for the darker blue which turned out to look WAY better than the aqua blue by my tastes. I should note that my M-100's are white, yet my XL pads are black, and I was afraid this might clash in the beginning, but it turned out to look incredible with my new shields. Check it:

 

 

 

 

Close up of the shield design:

Left side:

 

I also got the new Boom Mic and the free Faders, which I would like to add are surprisingly high quality, and do a very good job of blocking sound. I'm going to start using them at the range :)

 

I play online games and have a really crappy microphone at home, and use my default laptop microphone when I'm playing at my base, so the new Boom Mic I got will replace those. Very happy about that.

 

I'm very satisfied with all this new stuff, I even recommended my M-100's to a good friend of mine, and he bought them when he was in Hong Kong. He got the default Shadow ones so I was all showing off the new stuff I got to him.

 

If only there was an option to buy the case as I lost it on the train :(

 

PGX out ;D

It didn't come with a  product registration card. Could you elaborate on that SN sticker on the inner side of the headband? I don't see it on mine :(

On the inside of the headband, above the left cup, there should be an L and text that says crossfade M-100. Above that should be a silver sticker that has the SN.

lol... it's totally not there....

 

So the fact I don't have a sticker with the SN, a product registration card, and I got it from a 3rd party on Amazon (totally didn't realize that until now)... probably means I have a fake right? I guess the price of $269 was too good to be true lol.

 

:( sadness.

That isn't sounding too good. What did it come in?

Also Amazon.ca had them for $190 at one point. Don't know about other Amazons though.

^ I don't know, the M-100 achieves a pretty special balance of bass and tightness. FWIR the Monster Turbines are a nicely warm IEM of good head-fi reputation, not the same signature but probably good for your taste, and you can also read Joker's IEM reviews to see if you like one.
