V-MODA M-100: Discussion/Feedback, Reviews, Pics, etc. - Page 1350

post #20236 of 20244

Hi guys :) Had my M-100's now for a fair while and I love them, especially with the XL pads. Unfortunately the screws that hold the left earphone to the main band have snapped, as shown here.   https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/sh/qo8fhizkx7gkz1c/z1veVDQs_H/20140418_172235.jpg?token_hash=AAFwG3-2SA5fQsL_ZFpVBgJ9PQF6T6NhNTrQZjZZ-cdY4g

 

Now my issue is.. I've been quoted $80-100 to send it back to America for warranty repair ( I'm in Australia )  so.. I'm wondering what my options are. Any idea if I could get this fixed in Australia? or.. a type of shipping that is secure and has warrenty/tracking that will cost a bit less then $80? 

 

Thanks guys

Whoever quoted you ripped you off.
Step one - remove headphones from box
Step two - places headphones in case
Step three - place headphones in parcel bag
Step four - pay $25-30.

I live in Australia as well, man. I've sent my V-Ms back before, and they don't need the box. Just the cables, headphone with cushions attached, and case.
Make sure to print out your conversation with the support team so the engineers know what to replace or fix.

Enjoy, man.

Wich gets damaged more easily? Wich shows more signs of wear?

I have personal experience in this. Shadow wears more than Matte.

I'm not sure. I've only had the Matte Black XS for a few weeks now. I can share my experiences with the White Silver headband on my M-100. If I work from the assumption that the Matte Black headband is the made from the same material as the White Silver headband, then the Shadow headband is the most durable. I've had my Shadow V-80 for over 2 years and there are a few scuffs on the headband that are barely noticeable. My White Silver headband is cracked and some parts of the headband have peeled away revealing the foam padding underneath. I fixed it liquid leather.

I have leather LP2s and leather XS. I used to have a shadow M100 and scratches are very ugly on it, whereas leather scratches 'hide' themselves.

I am asking thi because a couple of days ago i saw someone selling a pair of matte black on ebay and although little there seemed to be some peals on the heaband.... i dont like that very much.... i assumed that the shadow ones being suede would be less prone to wer and tear but after your replys i guess they both show wear about the same....

I like the matte ear cups better and those seem more durable and less prone to getting scratched, but the suede headband of the Shadow seems more durable than the other headband (fake leather?). 

 

So, I think overall they are about the same really.
