I own both the TH900 and M100 and for PORTABLE use the M100 is the way to go hands down. 

 

Other than that I reach for the TH900 every time.

seems like you prefer the increase in bass quantity/reverb provided by closed-sounding headphones over the increased airiness & sound stage of open-sounding.

 

if you ever get $1,000 to throw down on headphones, you should check out the ultrasone pro dj. lots of bassheads seem to love it!

Regardless whichever top end can is next, the m100 are permanent keepers for juicy portable sound. Really a sweet signature and keeper and sooo portable for size (!)

I thought the TH900's soundstage was artificial-sounding, like the D7000, and certainly not up to par when it comes to sound quality for over $1000 in my experience. The Alpha Dog still sounds like a closed-back headphone in comparison, but it sounded more natural to me. Should I break the $1000 mark for headphones, I'd go for a HD800 or STAX rig. The basic STAX system I have for ~$600 already does itself wonders when compared to other headphones in the price, and above.

If I get another closed-back headphone, it'll either be the Alpha Dog at $600, the LFF Paradox at $500, or the updated Paradox Slants at $700.

you forgot about the new Audeze LCD-XC, which theoretically would murder all those & then stomp all over their corpses as I heard people say that the HE-400 outperforms all Fostex T50RP mods (tho the Alpha Dogs were not out then)

 

....soooo off-topic tho. sowwie :o

But I'm not going to pay $1700 for a fragile headphone made of lead and weighs 1000 pounds on my head. *just a slight exaggeration

The XL pads are one of the most comfortable pads I've tried on a headphone and the weight distribution of the M-100 is great with that addition. The LCD-2 and 3 weigh only 500 pounds while still being equally as fragile, and they both kept sliding off my head.

Speaking of which, I looove this album with the M-100. That Password Screen music reminds me of how many times I died trying to beat Mega Man 2.

Sometimes amps are finicky... try a smartphone/MP3 player too!

Yeah Drsheep Val both the headphone inputs and cables I tried  still no luck ....it must be problem with the creative ZxR soundcard...... as I plugged them directly into the back of another computer  which has prelude soundcard and they worked fine . Funny thing is the other computer has a speaker systems with a headphone input socket and I had the same problem!....ok connected straight to the prelude tho.

#

With my computers soundcard the Zxr all input connections have the problem ( Acm module and plugged directly into soundcard and with my Vali amp connected to the rca on the soundcard

 

I dunno what to do now ...send them back :(   im in the UK and bought them from V modas website imported to the uK ....amazon UK didn't have shadows in stock! and paid £52 import duty Ouch! sending back gonna cost me a fortune :(

 

Does anyone else have V modas M 100 with the  Zxr soundcard ? Only bought the soundcard month ago :(

Ok before you send the M-100 back, I suggest this possible cheap fix: get an 3.5mm extension / plug and see will this help.  You might have better luck on a cheap adapter that is somewhat out of spec to work with the ZXR misaligned outputs.  Also, have try using a VoIP adapter like this?

NP, and this is why I don't use onboard sound anymore: bad ports, bad shielding, and lots of noise.

post #17983 of 21044

How big are the XL pads? Is it as big as a HM5 pads?

How does the M100 sound if its only semi overears?

 

Starting to think to make the jump to the m100s.

post #17984 of 21044

Not necessary bigger but thicker.

Heard some great things about the bw p7, they look really posh aswell. They are ofcourse also a bit more expensive, and m100 is probably more suited for rap and electronic still (i dont know havent tested them yet myself?)
The M100s also sound great with rock and metal.Which covers all genres of music that i listen to.
