It is heavier than the headphones themselves but  I really like the CoilPro, doesn't make my head lean to one side though? :/

anyone had any luck with this?

Despite what V-Moda says, this has been the biggest quality issue with the M-100 based on feedback here from multiple owners, including first-hand experience.  The problem I see is that the wingplate is an area of high impact and pressure in a VERY tight-fitting case.  The material is too rigid and since it can't bend, it breaks.  These should either be metal or rubber, not plastic.  V-Moda really needs to examine and seriously consider a new way of producing these wingplates.

 

I would contact V-Moda and let them know if they can't send you a simple wingplate replacement set, then you want a replacement headphone at their expense for shipping.

Thanks, Craigster. I must agree.. my set broke even though they've been meticulously cared for. Pretty disappointing.

 

Last I contacted V-moda via email, they wanted me to ship the headphones in so they could determine if it's covered by warranty. Sounded like ******** so I didn't do it. Will call them today.

 

Anyone successfully received a new pair? Or at least replacement wingplates?

I would agree.  Not sure why this piece wasn't made from metal.  I wonder if XS will use the same part.  I haven't had the issue, but I haven't used one continuous model for long enough to to really consider my usage as valid data.

I did the same, they wanted me to pay to ship them so I just kept them.

hey guys, if there is anyone interested in getting a pair of V-Moda M100s at a discount, massdrop has them on sale - $240. may not come in the cool v-moda packaging (casio packaging I heard) and may not have a product registration card.

Massdrop is taboo on Head-fi from what I've heard.

Not the original packaging and no registration card? Does that not make you think fake the first second you read that?

 

C'mon.

They've done this before.  They are likely not fake, but good luck with warranty.

You're probably right, I have no experience with the site. I am overly-cautious with all of my tech warranties, as well, though, so if it sounds fake to me than I stray away from it. GLHF on that site lol.

I actually went on eBay and tirelessly tracked down a pair that I could confirm were real. After inquiring on probably 30+ listings on both head-fi and eBay, I finally found a guy that would send me his Amazon receipt, which allowed me to confidently bid on the cans. I picked them up $225 shipped (along with eBay's fantastic buyer protection), and I successfully registered them under my name the day I got them with the included registration card (he had them for 3 weeks). Basically, if you're trying to save a buck, stay patient and do it like I did. It definitely pays off. I'm loving my M100s.

mmm... the product isn't fake, they get the items from v-moda in bulk so it's different packaging. I've purchased the m100 a few times before, once from v-moda direct when they first came out, and once from another seller on amazon & they never came w/ a product registration card/SN sticker. dunno what's up w/ that. I'm actually kinda curious about the product registration card & SN sticker b/c I've never seen em on any of the V-Moda's I had.

 

sry if massdrop is an inappropriate topic to bring up. I know it's not allowed on the Deals threads but I rmb discovering the website from head-fi discussion, so I figured it'll be alright. cheers.

Both the serial number sticker and the registration card came with my M100s. Pretty weird that you have bought some without them!
