I was gonna do the same for the m100s use bass reducer at home, where i dont need that extra bass, and turn off the eq when im on the go.
I usually hate using eq but as stated before, the m100 ticks basically all the box for a portable. And with the xl pads it really seems like the perfect all rounder. Now its the sound im questioning.
I couldnt end up demoing a unit in toronto, yorkdale no longer has a demo unit ( glad i called ahead or i made the trip for nothing).
Tried the athm50s that some recommend was close in terms of sound sig for an easily accessible headphone u can demo.
Used bass reducer again off my ipod but with the fiio (e6) no eq so some bass bump i its vanilla mode. .
The lower midss felt really scooped and cold sounding and in comparison this made the treble overly bright.
Now i didnt grt to try it without the bass reducer but it seems (with the bass reducer eq setting whic i was intending for home use doesnt cut it on the athm50s which would mean the same for the m100s)
Any thoughtss? Soo close yet so far! I was so close to dropping the money on it
