hahah so true. I am so happy I listened to my dad about not listening to loud levels. I get bothered by harsh bright speakers because my ears are still in great shape smily_headphones1.gif

I wish! Too late for this bear, lol.

Get a comfortable volume on the headphones while you're standing up. Then sit down for 10 minutes and adjust volume accordingly. Then turn the light off for 10 minutes and adjust the volume accordingly. This is the volume you should be listening at. You'll have turned it steadily down.

Yeah the treble is rolled off but it's so far from "barely audible" it's silly. Also, no, the bass doesn't cover the mids. The mids are recessed, the bass doesn't cover them up. There is a HUGE difference between the two.

First of all; I'm a girl. Second, in a lot of my music, I can barely hear cymbals. It only sounded good with Drum&Bass music. 

 

Horrible high-frequency hear loss, no. I'm 17, never listen to my music overly loud and actually have a slight/mild case of hyperacusis. Sounds that are normally tolerable to other people are not for me; balloon pops, loud, V shaped speakers in a club/restaurant etc. 

 

I must be just used to more mid-centric headphones. In the end, I know I can't resist and I'll end up buying both.

Three things. One, I don't care what gender you are. No one brought it up, are we supposed to treat you differently now? And two, if you can't hear the cymbals, then something is crashingly wrong, because I can hear cymbals in all my music loud and clear. I can tell if it's a crash, china, ride, bell, open or closed hats, even if it's an actual HIT on the hats versus using the pedal. It's not as insanely sparkly as the FAD Pandoras, but no duh. And thirdly, mid-centric wouldn't bring the cymbals through, those would be the highs.

The other guy referred to me as he, so I'm just going to throw that out there. Maybe you should read some more. You guys get so defensive about this headphone like no other. I was just stating my opinion. The headphones I own which are mid-centric, do have peaks in the highs, and are very clear unlike this headphone. But it's expected when it has this much bass anyways. What mid-centric headphone have you tried that isn't clear sounding? Please tell. 

 

I never said I couldn't hear the cymbals at all, it's just that you can barely hear them. I also said it depends on the track. Maybe you should read more than my first sentence of my post, and maybe read the quotes from my other post. 

 

Down to the main point:

 

They aren't very clear, very dark treble. I wish it had a tad more treble. 

 

Imogen Heap sounds horrid on these. 

 

The Sennheiser Momentum actually has a soundstage. 

 

Just 3 things I heard when listening to these for about an hour.

Dude, chill. We all refer to each other as masculine here. Haven't you noticed? She's quite right to have a dig back. I'm as guilty as anyone. Also, this...

http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyperacusis

... might go some way to explaining the girls preferred sounds.

We take this **** way too seriously.

Damn! Too slow. Too old haha.

I just don't understand why anyone sits around in a thread feeling the need to explain why they DON'T like that product. You like the Momentums, get over in the Momentum thread. That's why it's there. Hanging around trying to convince everyone that the product is bad just makes you look needlessly negative and inflammatory. I don't sit around in the HiFiMan threads prattling on about how overrated I think those are.

My pleasure. I was typing my reply before I saw yours, if you know what I mean. I wasn't sucking up.

You've highlighted something I've thought about in the past though, I wonder how many other women there are here who just never bring it up. That must get annoying. If it was me I'd end up having a hissy fit and would probably have left here and be sulking on headfonia by now, lol.

More power to you and buy whatever headphones you want. You sound like you know what you're talking about.

I don't think she was being inflammatory. She was here originally because she was thinking about buying the M's. She's changed her mind and is explaining why.

And for the record, never mind her, this whole thing is getting ridiculous with these headphones! Do you know I got an email from V-Moda today inviting me to review the XL pads. Not the headphones themselves, note. What can I say about ear pads? They're soft, they're spongy. Or maybe point out that I wouldn't have had to buy them at all if they'd actually made these full-size headphones full-size in the first place?

I didn't get an invitation to review the structural integrity of the headphones materials either, by the way.

I never said they were bad. I just said I didn't like them for those reasons. Please notice the difference.

This is the V-MODA M-100: Discussion/Feedback isn't it? That's my feedback; doesn't say it has to be positive or negative.

I can understand that, but if you've found them lacking and prefer the Momentums, it seems needless to harp on the fact. Focus on the stuff you like, not the stuff you don't like. Unless you're trying to gain a better appreciation for them or something, it feels like it's just raising static for no reason.

 

Here's what it boils down to: is there a goal in mind here besides just letting us all know that you don't like them? Is there a constructive end result you're hoping to achieve? If so, I apologize for raising a stink, but I don't see what it could be here.

All I posted was one comment and you go nuts. Sorry but I'm not listening to what you think I should do. 

 

We are all here on Head-Fi to discuss the headphones. Read my previous comment: I'll probably end up buying both the Momentum and M-100. 
 

Now back on topic please.

Remember, guys, this is head-fi, where a 1/2 dB difference over a 20 Hz range is "night and day".

Is this a dig at me?
