I've never heard the AT myself but yes, that seems to be the general consensus. I hope you enjoy them.

so unfortunately its gotta be a 1 shot purchase. even the 60 day money back guarantee is counter productive, cause the shipping back and forth could almost pay for an entry headphone (about 60 bucks) not including import taxes if applied

 

but i can try the m50s thanks for the tip!


Actually the Microsoft store in Toronto,Canada is where I auditioned and bought my M100s.Its was before Christmas and they were the only location(Yorkdale Mall) which had them.Now about my latest purchase.I never thought buying the refurbished Sanza Clip Zip would  pay off like they did.$20! And they sound awesome with the M100s.And when I say no amp required I mean it.

It's kinda the opposite of what is the case in digital landscape photography where it's preferable to under-expose the foreground so as to retain detail in the skies and then in pp bring the detail back in to the foreground. If you were to initially expose for the correct foreground detail you'll most likely blow out the skies and no amount of pp can put something back that wasn't there in the first place.

I'm a photographer but I'm not sure I'm explaining that well. Makes sense to me.
Well with an amp the headphone has to conform to the ohms and may limit or boost the headphone.
I have the FiiO E17 and it works well with my M100 to bring clearness to the sound, but the sound itself is only improved marginally. I also have a fiio LOD.
But a microphone on the m100 limits the sound, I have and used the boompro cable and found sound is better.
Idk if this answered your theory

Where do you guys even find proper aux cords for the m100? The headphone itself accepts plugs that have really narrow bases (or whatever they're called) and the receiving shaft is quite deep!

 

Also what advantage does a trrs plug have over a trs plug? Does cloud the signal? Create more resistance?

Most standard 3.5mm cables are narrow enough to squeeze in there that I've found. At least decent ones, not the cheapies.

Here's a link to the one I bought...

https://www.nuforce.com/index.php?option=com_k2&view=itemlist&task=category&id=81:35mm-cables&Itemid=347

TRRS cables allow for switched controls in the cable, like a transport control, mic or mic button. I can live without those functions and so I purchased the cable above.

Any difference in sound compared to the stock cable?

I think so, yes. I hear the bass to be leaner and tighter. It's not a night & day difference though and many believe cables make no difference at all. YMMV.

It suffers from no microphonics whatesoever though and resists kinks very well. It's also not orange.

Just wanted to say, I will be receiving mine by Friday or Thursday if I get lucky! 
Cant wait to compare to my other ones...after a lot of reading, I think I made a good choice plus found it cheap.

I just got the XL pads! The feeling of comfort on them is night and day compared the stock pads; it's really quite amazing.

 

The change to the sound is quite miniscule. I do believe the soundstage is slightly improved. The bass has lost a bit of punch and instead feels a bit muddier but it's hardly noticeable.

 

Also, it's a lot warmer due to the extra contact on the skin.

Protip, if you want to look like a jerk, put the old stock pads on top of the XL pads and wear them that way! :beyersmile:

 

I really wish the design on removing and replacing the earpads was designed better; there were a couple moments where I thought I was going to rip my old earpads and leave the plastic catcher still in there.

 

Edit: After I removed the earpads, I tried to see if I could gain access to the driver (more specifically the driver holes) by removing the screws but the plate in front of the driver still wouldn't budge so I just gave up on that.

I really want to try the XL pads, but I'm afraid of ruining my headphones.  Is it possible to order a pair of M100s with the XL pads already installed?  I'm thinking I might do that, or at least order a 2nd pair along with the XL pads.  Expensive, but then I wouldn't worry so much about the pad removal and installation.

 

Also, I could then sell the pair I liked least . . .

 

These are my only portable headphones, and I really don't want to be without them due to a botched pad replacement.
