How long have you had your unit?
Maybe you can try a return?
I listened extensively new and after 1200hrs and sound was never as you described and I feel got more better.
Bass less separated and mids clear and less recessed but maybe its the pads?
Anyway it sounds very good regardless just a slight treble edge..
It's definitely still within the warranty period - just got it a week ago and nowhere near 120 hours of break-in; probably not even halfway. I do have the XLs ordered based on some recommendations here as well. So, can't wait to get those.
Thanks. Incidentally, the Amperiors just shipped and should be here by tomorrow.
Which ones would you use with the m100s? Also, clarify incompatible - are you saying the cable that came with the m100s may be incompatible with the m100s?
