I have another question regarding the leather band. ( I'm not sure what material it is? )

 

Is it something that easily rip? or is it very durable?

Mine has like... 2 tiny hole on it. ( ??? )

Don't worry about cosmetic damage.

I can't speak for the M100, since I have the shadow m100. I do have the LP2 though.
The leather is probably leather, or a plastic derivative. It repels water well, so it's probably close if not leather.

It can't tear or rip if you don't make it do so. They're solid enough that they won't do anything of their own accord. Just take care of them.

Edit: OMG one came off... :x now to do the other side...
The trick is to pull the edge inward toward the center first. Gotta clear at least one of the clips and then it gets easy. They don't lift straight out.
Almost ripped my XL pads, and accidentally ripped my stock pads right off.

Two things I can think of:

The XL pads clamp a little tighter than the stock pads. Fix by flattening the band a little bit. Reducing clamping force is a big win for comfort.

The cups will shift a bit with the memory foam pads as the foam warms up. The same thing happens with my KRKs. Repositioning the cups alleviates discomfort.

Ah okay. I was worried it was a material that rip pretty easily since it came with those tiny hole(s) when I opened the box.

Easy herculese.

I haven't gotten much relief from my XL pads. My ears stick out abnormally far from my head so they still contact the drivers. I'll just have to keep listening sessions relatively short. I'll be first in line for the limited edition guy with cartoonish ears xxxl pads. Seriously though maybe just go with on ear from here on out?

From what I gathered the XL pads did more for people whose ears were too big to go inside the normal pads (which wasn't a problem for me). Actually the XL pads made my ears contact the drivers FAR worse, because the memory foam compressed much more easily than the stock. So back to stock pads it is.

My girlfriend loves the sound of the M-100s with her iPhone 5, but she thinks they are too large.  Does anyone here know of any on-ear headphones with a similar sound signature, but slightly smaller, thinner, and less noticeable?  She can't wear IEMs or any type of earbuds, but wants something that is not so visible.

 

Thanks for any suggestions anyone can give.

I hate admitting when I'm wrong, but I hate being wrong more, so here goes.

 

I made the above post after using the XL pads for about a half hour earlier in the day. After I made it, I decided to be a little more fair and give them some more time. Well, time to eat crow, because they are better. I sat and A-B'd the pads by putting one stock and one XL pad on and repeatedly flipping the headphones around and feeling the fit (the sound change is negligible). The reason my ears hit the drivers now but didn't before is that the stock pads actually sat just on the rim of my ears and held them down. They were almost like extra-large on-ear pads. The XL's open it up just enough to really wrap around.

 

So yeah. XL pads. Good stuff. I think the people saying that they extend the bass are people who had sealing problems before. From what I read, VMODA designed these specifically to have no effect on the sound, and I'm going to agree. Wearing one of each and rotating the pair periodically didn't result in any noticeable sonic changes, just a better fit and less compression on the ear.

My ears still rub just slightly with the xl pads, but they helped enough that I can wear them all day now. These phones are not designed for large ear'd folks apparently. I could still go for another 2mm of depth if I had the option.

 

I second the xxl pads!      =)

Just ordered the XL pads... And some stuff to make some custom cables (20ft of Mogami & some 3.5mm jacks with a 6mm housing).

 

Also, I found another low budget but decently made cable for the M100. Neet Cables ultra slim FLX. I got the 1m cable, but it comes in a range of sizes (seen them from 0.5 to 5 meter). They are being sold through Amazon UK. No spectacular changes in sound, but it does what it's supposed to...

Anyone know where to get the 3 button remote? The Amazon blurb mentions them and if you google "vmoda 3 button" you get a clip from their website of it, but the link itself is blank. Did they discontinue it?

Yes. They are in the process of redesigning it. Luckily I have one from my old m80s that still works great.

Interestingly...when using the 3 button vs the 1 button that came w the M100s...the sound of out of my MacBook Air is significantly quieter. But when I use it with other devices it's about the same. Must be an impedance thing w the output of the Air.
