I love them for older music. I'm not afraid to EQ these babies. I wouldn't dream of it with my 650's or Q's but the M's love it. The Human League or Soft Cell with the M's and bass-boost from my E18 sound awesome!

A DAC will improve these significantly.
I use the FiiO E17 at the moment, but when I use the AUX amp option, it makes everything a touch clearer, whereas in DAC / USB mode it makes everything clearer and is an noticeable difference. I don't use an amp anyway, planning to get the Verza when I have funds.

i was listening to GORGIA ON MY MIND the Michael Buble one, and the Vocals were so muddy that i couldnt listen to it.

Don't get me wrong.  I'm not here to bash the M-100's or any of the other designs.  I LOVE the aesthetics of the V-Moda's, the build quality, and what I've read/heard about the company itself so far.  I had very high hopes when I heard there were so many audiophiles involved in the design of these.  I'd like to hear the XS's now.  I feel like they may be a little more to my liking.  I'll be sticking to my $60 Martin Logans for now though.

This version here?

 

The vocals are bassy, but I wouldn't call them muddy. No way is this anywhere close to muddy. I think congested might be a better term. On the XS they have a similar signature, though the XS has more forward mids so it wasn't as bass-heavy as the M-100 presentation. Through my KSC75, the bass isn't as intrusive and the open sound stage really benefits the song. Blues and Jazz aren't the M-100's strong point. I actually enjoy Buble more on my $15 KSC75. Clarity isn't there, but that openess really draws me into the music.

 

Damn. I need a better open can now.

i guess thats a better way to put it, but i got the M100's mostly for rap, i just hope i get my XL pads tomarrow.

Vocals muddy? No problem!
Buy a decent amp and a decent EQ app (I suggest CanOpener for iOS)
I don't find the vocals muddy at all. Check your bitrates. It may be the mastering of the song. But I wouldn't go out and say that you're wrong.

When trying the XS (sorry no m100 right now) with AnakChan's new Astel & Kern player (I think AK240? 420? Idk)
I listened to a pure vocal track, Adele. EVERYTHING was clearer. I suggest getting a good amp to suit your music. The M100s are a great set of cans (besides the ATH m50) to equalise and amp.
