I dont need them, but the effort and love put into these cans... I dunno I admire it, and that alone is worthy of a purchase. The excellent quality and value is a hell of a bonus too.

 



Thanks, those words make it worth the long time and hard work that we put into trying to make a near-perfect product for the people.  Good news, I have new samples ready today and I'll start testing them thoroughly on Sunday, I think we have a sonic winner!!!  One of them already is quite amazing already, I just got it back from a customer of mine.

 

I'll audition all of them closely and let ya'll help me decide on which of the final 6 sound curves I green light.  I'll bring lots of equipment and a variety of other headphones to compare and perform benchmarks, answer questions.   Stay tuned!  I'm doing my absolute best to give great sound to as many people as we can!  

 

This reminds me of the open-source days, whatever happened to that hype?!  Memory lane, here was an open-source project I enVisioned when I was a software architect....

I have the LP's, and I have found there to be a problem with durabililty with the plastic. I am currently at school so I can't add a picture to this but once I get home I will post it.

Hmm, just something I want to bring forth to the attention, I tried replacing the M-Audio Q40's stock cable with a V-Moda LP2 audio cable and was suprised how different the Q40 sounded with it, in a bad way. The V-Moda cable seemed to supress the highs and lower the resolution of them, I've spent so much time EQing headphones in the past I will easily notice say an 1~1.5dB drop around 8~10kHz for example.

 

Besides that the cable is kevlar reinforced with isn't a good thing for Q40 headphones as it picks noise from rubbing against clothes very well but yea that rolled-off highs/lack of resolution in the highs worried me slightly about that cable. The LP2 also got very recessed highs IMO, had to boost 8kHz by 3.5dB and 16kHz by 5.4dB to get it sound even with the mids, seems part of it is to blame the cable too.

What kind of fancy cable are you using to get that because either you are better at noticing from your EQing or I don't know what.

x2 I'm betting the M-100 will bring 'porta-fi' to a whole new level. The one thing I do hope is that it's more isolating than the M-80.

Doesn't have to be an uber fancy cable, cheap vs cheap can have different sound. Using that V-Moda cable I had to raise the highs on the EQ one notch to get the same balance in highs on the otherwise neutral sounding Q40 in the mids & highs, with the stock cable I don't have to. With another pair of cable for example that is thin and is what you get with for example FiiO portable amps it sounds tiny bit more V-shaped for example (slightly more bass and highs), very tiny differences we're speaking of here but there's a difference. Maybe Q40 is extra picky about cables, I don't know but I'm 100% sure about hearing differences, no question about it.

Interesting, anyone have a recabled LP2 or M-80 to confirm?

post #249 of 20985

Pictures I mentioned. These have been dropped a few times, but never from any higher than 2 feet and onto carpet.

Didn't the original LPs have issues with the screws on that part being a little too tight causing cracking? I might mention I have yet to drop my M-80s *knock on wood* and have no such issues. 

post #251 of 20985

I have no idea, but I have heard that the cracking where the headband connects to the speaker is a common issue.

That might be what i read about i just remember reading that there were cracking issues somewhere on the original LP.

If they are really having that problem, lets replace them so we can analyze!
 

It hasn't been a big issue on the real units (REMEMBER there are fakes and those have lots of problems as they use inferior materials).  On the initial first couple hundred we screwed the screws too tight on a few but that was solved years ago, additionally we changed the material.  We've sold QUITE A FEW thousand and it has not been a problem.

 

If a cosmetic issue does happen from too many drops (say 20-70!), at least its better than the competitors that snap and are unusable after one time!  Plus we have the immortal life guarantee.  I think I've covered all the bases to ensure customer satisfaction for life.  Check out the real life tests we try, I have lab analysis and videos too I'll unveil in a few weeks.

 

 

Cheers,

PS - google "fake beats" and you'll see the Crossfade LP on EVERY fake site listed there... :<

I bought mine from Newegg, I'm sure they're the real deal aren't they? I saw Newegg as a verified dealer on the V-Moda website. Also does the warranty cover that? They've honestly only been dropped a few times from no more than 2-3 feet.

I read only this page, so sorry if I'm going to ask something already asked.

 

Will be there a true blood version?

 

The first price will be 300$, right?
