V-MODA M-100: Discussion/Feedback, Reviews, Pics, etc. - Page 1296

post #19426 of 23002

I got some new cables for my M-100 from V-Moda today and was a little surprised by the difference between the speak-easy and audio only cable there is. I expected a slight difference but nothing as noticeable as what I hear. The sound with the audio only cable would be best described as fuller. Wish I had gotten one sooner :D

Which did you get? Since I'm using the Verza there's no need for a mic cable with it. I HAVE read that the speakeasy cable has a higher impedance than others.

I was at a friends house the other day with my M-100's. He's not fussy about music but after trying the cans with my rig (SGN3 > E18 > good music) he plugged the cans into his iPhone, dialled in some music and started bopping. I had a listen and couldn't believe how bad the sound was. I took them off and asked him if he had seriously EQ'ed the sound to his taste. He had no idea and so we had a dig around in the settings and found the bass reducer setting. WTF! Kinda demonstrates the demographic Apple are aiming at, no? Surely a bass enhancer makes more sense? Nah, I guess not in this Beats Generation. Anyway, turned the bass off and the M-100's were singing.

I've got four V-MODA cables that I use with my M100s for different applications.  I use the Boom mic pro for gaming, the audio only cable out of the Verza, the one button speakeasy for my Nexus 5 and my three button speakeasy directly out of iOS devices.  All four seem to have different impedences and variables.  I definitely have to adjust the volume for each to output at the same level.  Kind of weird coming from the same company, but I guess putting inline mics and other stuff on the cable has to change it a bit.

My Nuforce cable is louder & leaner than the one-button orange cable.

I got both of them. My original speakeasy cable was falling apart since I use it on the go just about everyday so ordered a new one along with the audio only cable just to have another back up.

I mean which audio-only cable. XD I've heard great stuff about the NuForce, meanwhile the Fiio cable looks interesting.

The basic v-moda cable. Been very interested in the NuForce cable too but I cant find it anywhere.

Yes, that's the one. If anything the plugs are even slimmer than those on the stock cable.

Just got these today, I was hoping to listen to them at work but my employees did not want me too. The M100s have the exact sound sig that I really enjoy.

I bought these used on Amazon for 237.00 and they look brand new like they were never taken out of the box. They still had the plastic protective cover over the shields. So far really happy with them.

If you make it balanced, you have to make some soldering changes with the drivers' cables.

Shouldn't you be able to just switch out one of the 3.5 inputs for a mini XLR? Since there's 2 inputs? or am I missing something?

If only it were available in the US...

 

I'm torn between the VMODA audio-only cable and springing extra for the Fiio RC-MH1.

It's one input with two in-line jacks. That is, it's single-ended, dual entry. A simpler way to think of it is a Y splitter, or rather a Y joiner. If you connect different sources to each jack then you'll hear both sources through both cups. To make them balanced you need to remove the connections between the cups and complete the circuits on each side and then run monaural left and right pairs.
