I found two pairs. There was another pair of gray ones that I must have just thrown out. And of course the ones that came on it too.

Just curious, is it because of asthetical reasons that you simply haven't just added something underneath the pads to make them deeper as they become compressed? I do that with the headphones I wear (not M100).

The XL is made in a way where there is nowhere to put anything. The area under the pads is a little narrow.  

I initially tried with the stock pads, but there was lint everywhere no matter what I used and I didn't feel like it was a solution. 

I don't really feel like I should have to worry about any of that anyway. 



I sent an email to V-MODA yesterday and explained in great detail about this issue. They said they will forward it to their design team. I hope they really do take it into consideration.

I regret to admit that I was fairly disappointed with these unfortunately.. . Very uncomfortable to wear for long periods of time, you have to buy a new pair of cups. Bass is not as impressive as the mdr xb1000s and mids and highs are very dry and empty. What makes these so special? The factory warranty was neat though

I got my cable and it works. (The y cable that goes to both cups. Message the seller 'cairimao' on amazon and tell them you need a cable like the denon ah-d7100 but with 2 poles on the headphone terminations, they will make it custom. ~$20.. it warmed up my sound more

were you listening to music with instruments or electronic? These are really exclusively tuned for electronic genres.

And Hip-hop as well. Really like Eminem with these. If I had to own just 1 single pair of closed-backs I wouldn't go for the M100, but I've already got a lot of other solid cans for other genres.

I exclusively used these for electronic music.I think the Bose Quiet Comfort 25s might be a better fit.

Look I'm not a real audiophile, and I'm relatively new to high-end headphones (check the sig). But I have enjoyed the way music built around live horns sounds on these. I've mostly listened to hip hop and R&B, but I also have some brass band jazz that sounds good (to me) on these. I haven't really listened to anything guitar heavy yet. I may do that tomorrow.

I find the fact that you say you found some jazz that you feel sounds good on these. In my experience instrumental based music is the main type that I absolutely do not like listening to in the M100. Hip hop and contemporary R&B sound good. But the coloration of the headphones themselves seem to lend an unnatural sound to horns that just does not Ppeal to me. At the same time, headphones the I use for acoustic based music, bore me when it comes to bass driven, contemporary based music. My only issue with these is the slight recessed miss, but a little eq in the 1k,2k range combined with a what some consider a brightish dac (dfr) and I'm extremely happy
