I'm honestly surprised some people find the bass "rumble" too much at times. I don't find the bass overbearing in the slightest, or even to be quite the rumble many people discuss.

These don't go down to $200 often from retailers so I'd recommend just buying at the new $250 retail price.

This is an exceptional price. Delivery from Hong Kong, but 100% original. (Straight from the factory, that is the reason for this price.)  I bought mine from here. First I quit the purchase process, and to keep me in the deal I was offered an extra £5 off, so I paid £140 ($218) including international shipping. They ship to U.K. only though, as far as I know.

As much as I like the sound, even with the XL pads these are not exactly comfortable to wear for more than a few songs. This is from someone coming from one of the most comfortable headphones ever designed, the ATH-700, but I do hope the next generation has improved comfort. Find myself constantly adjusting these, especially while wearing glasses. I wouldn't say I have particularly large ears since they fit in the standard pads but even with the XL they touch the driver, plus the clamping pressure on the ears is a bit more than I'd like. Unfortunately the short-lasting comfort at least for me personally could be enough to force me to return these frown.gif and wait to see if V-Moda improves comfort next time around. I most likely won't return/sell though.

I rarely wear sunglasses (and had LASIK surgery 12 years ago), but the other day I tried wearing sunglasses while listening to my M-100s. I lost about 3 dB of sub-bass, (had to use one extra bass increment in my EQ presets), and the sub-bass on one side sounded a little louder than the other.

 

You need a really good air seal around the earpads to get proper sub-bass, and your earpieces on glasses will break the seal a little.

 

So as for me, I just took off the sunglasses after one song, and said oh well,...it's a sunny day, but my eyes can take it!  :atsmile:

 

No big deal....

I've attached some folded tissue paper to the bottom of the headband of mine to raise it up a bit, which combined with the XL pads have made mine very comfortable. I'm wearing sunglasses under them right now without any trouble. I have gently bent the headband in the past though - just by bending it into a straight line a couple of times.

I was used to my Sennheiser HD600 before I bought my M-100. The HD600s is the most comfortable headphone I have ever tried. Even after 5-6 hrs of listening you feel you could wear it for another 5-6 hrs. It just hugs your head, you do not want to take it off. :)
The M-100 with the stock pads became very uncomfortable after 20-30 minutes of listening. (I have small ears.) With the XL pads I say it is ok. At least it does not hurt wearing them for 3-4 hours. Obviously it does not even come close to the comfort of the (opened) HD600, but it is quite comfy for a closed can, even after 3-4 hrs I do not have major issues with comfort. (It could breathe more, but it wont, as it is a closed hp.)
With XL pads it is fine. I have no issues. Of course I do not expect the comfort of the opened back flagships... That would be unfair.

Took my M-100 for heir first journey. :)
Was quite amazing to have this sound on the streets. Feels even more spacious. :)
Can't wait my next flight in August to find out, how much it isolates on a plain.
Very satisfied with overall performance so far. Especially with 80% of my music genres. (Containing electronic bits and peaces.) :)

I've never had any major comfort issues with the stock pads. After about 3 hours they become very, very slightly uncomfortable, so at that point I'll occasionally just take them off my ears for about 30 seconds, wiggle my earlobes a bit, and put the M-100s back on. No problem.

Everyone's head is different I guess. ;)
