The M-100's are much better in my opinion. And, importantly if you're going to be using them as portables, far more secure on the head.

I reviewed the a few pages back but yes, I love them. I wasn't aware I had issues with comfort until I installed the XL's. I also rather enjoy what they've done to the sound.

For those asking for a deal on the M-100. How does $195 sound?

XL pads also increase isolation over the stock pads IME, it's great on trains and public transportation.

And Spider that's an awesome deal.

Best deal I have seen.

On the topic of music: I've been digging Joywave's stuff through my M-100s.

To be honest, I've tried the momentums several times and the build quality is completely different. The momentums feel flimsy compared to the M100.
The only competitor for sound with the M100 I've seen is the Bowers & Wilkins P7. They sound like a long lost cousin to the M100, but the price is almost $500, which makes the M100s a better competitor. The fit on the P7 is good, but not as good as the M100. Reason I buy V-M is because I haven't found anything else as good.

The Momentums feel CRAZY chintzy in comparison, yeah. The Momentum on-ear are soooooomewhat like the M100s in that they have emphasized bass as well, but the over-ear aren't even close. 

 

I haven't tried the P7 or the NAD Viso Hp50, but every other under $500 headphone I've tried (and many others above that price) just can't beat the M100 if its sound signature (powerful bass, slightly recessed mids, sparkly but non-fatiguing treble) is what you want.

"Chintzy" is now my word for the day 😀

Shows you how epic the m100s are, especially since the momentums are usually considered to be of high quality.

I just got my Crossfade M100s.  They're totally not my cup of tea in the slightest bit.  The bass is far too heavy.  Music is boomy and almost a bit muddy.  It gives me a bit of a head ache.

 

After trying the M100's I'm finding myself to really prefer the Beats Studio 2014 even more.  I feel it is more accurate and neutral.. as funny as that sounds.

 

Maybe it's just me.  I'm keeping them though because I really like the customization/design and I got them for a great price.

o_o

Coming from the AKG Q701's I don't think these are muddy o-o

Recessed mids yes, but the instrument separation is quite amazing despite this.
Boomy bass I can agree though, but that's what I initially want out of a bassy can :P

 

Your Mileage May Vary I guess.

This is a wildly confusing post. 

 

Also, why in the world did you get the M100s if you didn't want heavy bass?

Check your audio cable. If you're using the SpeakEasy cable with the microphone there may be an incompatibility with your device. You can test/remedy this by FLIPPING your cable around and plugging the 45 degree end into your headphone and the straight plug into your device or by using a different audio cable like the SharePlay.

I've actually experienced what he's experiencing on both my V-80 and my M-100 with certain phones and amps. There's some weird thing with the TRS/TRRS connectors that causes some of the frequency spectrum to be lost. And it sounds like garbage.
