Also the mediabridge cable is heavily shielded, thick, heavy and not very flexible. It is not something that I would recommend for a headphone.

if your looking for a very high quality cable for the m100 I would recommend sourcing a genuine monster/beats cable or making your own out of Redco TGS-1 cable, whatever connector you want on the source side and one of these connectors on the headphone side.

I hope i dont get flamed for this but i actually like the beats/monster cables.

Their overpriced yes, their colour(ehh im indifferent) but the quality and build is good especially for portable purposes (they have the beefy thick ones from beats pro, or the lighter ones from solos, studios.

Anyone noe where i can genuine in CANADA . I noe in the states u can get the cables individually off the monster website. Unfortunately u cant so this in canada.

The vmoda cables are nice but even the speakeasy cable i felt is a bit long.

Anyways i love the purple audio cable , why is it that they kink less> speakeasy. Plus their more pliable.wish it was shorter like 3.5 foot or so. Love the colour

I figured I'd update the status of my m100's, these m100's are exactly 4 months old and although I love the sound and enjoy them very much IMO their quality just does not even come close to the $300 price tag and I'm glad I didn't pay full price for them.

 

The right earcup is now cracked in two different spots, one on the top left of the cup and another in the ring that holds the earpads. The paint on the yokes is also pretty cheap looking with quite a few imperfections as well and a few spots where the paint has begun to flake off. Also the screws are junk and make this headphone just look cheap once they loose their finish. 

 

I'm going to be sending these headphones in for warranty soon and hopefully v-moda will just replace them with a new pair.

 

here are a few pictures to show the cracks. The crack on the earcup started as a small barely noticeable hairline crack but is now a pretty wide very noticeable crack that spans from the screw hole all the way to the edge of the earcup.
