V-MODA M-100: Discussion/Feedback, Reviews, Pics, etc. - Page 13

I really hope the m-100 would be as portable as the m-80s but sound wise a hybrid of both m-80 and cross fade LP:)

All joking aside, I do hope the M-100 is an overall upgrade to the M-80 unamped as well, and that the additional SQ bump when amped will be outstanding. I trust Val and his team will do their best to please everyone - they're definitely ahead of the game when it comes to the M-80. All we can do is wait and see.

 

Btw, no-more-than-three-smokes-a-day head-fiers unite lol.

I'm interested to know how the "attack" and treble on the m-100's are compared to the m-80. I think one of the critiques I often see is that the m-80's SS doesn't fare so well with busy or aggressive music and lacks decay off the treble (i.e. cymbals), however, succeeding as a very polite, nonfatiguing headphone.

Funny you mention this, I have thought about this as Drew from Moon Audio requested it and I have ONE M-100 with it.

 

I may have a creative solution for the tinkerers that want to modify it to be balanced easier, it's in my "nice to have features" for launch.  Yet, I cannot promise because if it hurts our reliability testing it'll have to be a manual mod.  It definitely will be made to be a consumer-friendly single entry for the 99 percentile.

 


Maybe it's too complex, but you could have single-entry points on both cups. Then people who want dual entry could rig (or have rigged up) a cable that respectively only uses the necessary contact points on the plugs for each side. Inserting on both sides would have to separate the signal return/ground somehow, however.

 

If you make it single-entry, someone will complain that, despite wanting to use an aftermarket cable, there will still be "inferior" wire between the cups.

 

But, if we're just talking a mid-tier pair of headphones that will work with balanced portable amps, then it might be less of an issue.

Quick question I'm sure this was answered a million times before but I was wondering has the final prototype been created yet, if so what is the final sq like when compared to some headphones like the hd25, m80, lp2, m50, and any others comparable?

I believe it'll be a combo between an M-80 and LP2. I'm eagerly anticipating to hear these :) Wonder how the treble will sound compared to M-80.

Actually, its a M-80 + LP2 + _____  love child...   can't spoil it yet, stay tuned!!!

 

I've given up on trying to find a few "benchmark" headphones for it as I usually do, its a different sound signature I've never heard before that was unplanned but awesome at the same time!

Yeah, man! That's what I like to hear. When you come the fork in the road-- go straight ahead and forge your own path!

I also love surprises!

 

Val, I'll be working in downtown LA this summer; does V-MODA have a physical storefront to visit, or do y'all just have a secret batcave where you disappear into your coffins during the day and wait for night to come out and play?

Fittingly, since we own the night - our office is on Sunset in Hollywood. We just redid our office space to expand our labs and custom assembly areas.  PM me when you are in town and you can setup an appointment to stop by and say hi!

 

Here are pics of the bat cave, AKA "V-MODA Fortress" where we do events and have a DJ booth for testing DJ setups as well as a soundproofed listening room for critical listening. The pics are the MTV VMA pre-party we did a year ago!

The headphone world in in need of a great sounding circumaural closed portable design as there aren't too many out there worth their weight.  Sounds like these are semi-open so hopefully they seal outside noise enough to be used in louder environments.  I'm hoping these have highs that are not rolled off, are not distant sounding in the mid-range, and do not have bass that overrides the other frequencies but that is present, punchy, and detailed.  Hand in hand with the sound, they need to be comfortable (which I think is the case already with the LP so this shouldn't be a problem).  Then throw in the extras you already provide with the other models and you could have something special here.  I'm definitely waiting with much anticipation for a listen.

Wow.... my excitement totally went up a few notches. As if I wasn't already eager to try them!
