I usually listen to music while exercising and would probably need to be in a different state of mind to listen to Meddle.....but so much great music from that era that should sound great on the M-100.

One thing I'm a bit curious about is the weight. I remember that in ljokerl's headphone shootout he mentioned that the LP's weren't too comfy because of their weight whereas the M80's were comfier in terms of weight because of the difference in size. I wonder how that'll play out for the M-100's.

According to this, it's a 60 gram difference. However, on the Amazon page it says this:

Making it an 80 gram difference. Until the release, neck exercises and weighted custom shields on my V-80s. Crossfit? Nah. V-fit!

I'm wearing LP2's right now.  They're not ultra light weight or anything, but they are not uber heavy either.  According to a previous post to this one, the difference in weight is 3 oz, between the M-80 and the LP2.  They're not very comfy for wearing around your neck, though (in fact that's my only real gripe about them).  At first the clamping force was a bit much for wearing with glasses.  It took a few minutes of tweaking the headband to make it comfy enough.

Yeah, I've owned the LP, LP2, and now the M-80. The headband makes all the difference in comfort to me. With a few adjustments to the spring steel headband I could wear the LP2 for as long as my M-80 without fatigue or that little sore spot that develops on the top of your head after you've worn your cans too long. You know the one. I suspect the M-100 will be just as comfy.

I do love Echoes!!  And I would imagine that it won't be very long before I put Pulse to the test. 

 

I did a lot of.........listening? to the Doors back in the 80's!!  confused_face_2.gif

 

BTW, I own the LP's and also LOVE the M80's...and have thought for a while about picking up the LP2 but had not yet.  Then of course with the M100 coming I had put it on the back burner....but today I was wandering through electronics at the exchange and saw the LP2's in stock for a sale price that I just couldn't pass up!!  So I gave my LPs to my wife and I now own the LP2 and the M80 and am anxiously awaiting the M100s!!!

Are we talking about what would sound great through the M-100s? Or did I miss something entirely?

 

Seeing how great the M-80s are with trance, I would love to listen to some Infected Mushroom through the M-100s.

Who agrees with me? If not - what do you think it is? When do you think it will be announced?

One word:
IMPLANTS.

Also Craigster and others decrying the death of concept albums... I think I've encountered a pretty steady stream of concept albums since what you mentioned. The flaming lips did a bunch of stuff (I'm seriously curious to try out that album that requests you play 4 different discs/records on 4 different boomboxes/stereos/players simultaneously), I would count "OK, COMPUTER" as a concept album, and I would say all three of Arcade Fire's albums have a strong theme underpinning each album. So it doesn't make you fogeys, unless you have given up on finding new stuff to like (which I doubt you have trouble with ^_^).

Lastly, lilcoolaidman, we were picking which songs to listen to first on our M-100s smily_headphones1.gif

One of my first songs will be "Mad Rush," by Philip Glass, off his Solo Piano album. One of he most moving piano solos I've ever heard. Followed up by "Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik," by Outkast, then "Digital Love," by Daft Punk :)

I must confess I completely missed the Flaming Lips, as in never heard them.  The simultaneous playing isn't exactly practical for headphone listening.  I believe the new Smashing Pumpkins album, Oceania is a concept album, at least according to Howard Stern.

A beautiful piece, no doubt.  Have you heard Branka Parlic's performance of it?  I actually prefer her performance of it to Philip Glass'.

 

Here is a review of the album, if you are interested.

Best recent concept album is Hadestown by Anais Mitchell. A Greek myth set in the depression era America

The first albums I will listen to when I get the M-100

 

 

Pink Floyd - Pulse  stolen-babies-stolen-babies-ep-disc-27048.jpeg _Reviews_All_That_Remains_The_Fall_Of_Ideals_fallofideals.jpg

                     Pink Floyd - Pulse                          

 

As-I-Lay-Dying-An-Ocean-Between-408251.jpg 112388_1_f.jpg tweekend.jpg            

 

The_Prodigy-The_Fat_Of_The_Land-Fro.jpg   B000007TUF.01._SCLZZZZZZZ_.jpg 

 

Key test songs I will listen to

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There are many more of coarse but you all get the picture

post #2488 of 20926

Wow, the more I read Val's posts, the more I love him.

 

I hope the headband is not like the brown M-100. Like I've said before, it doesn't look (from the picture), that it would be easy to clean if it gets dirty. (Although, I would think that there's a reason for everything that Val does)

I know, I know, I've said it before. It's just that I want to LOVE the product. I already love Val, though.

 

haha. cool.gif

Yes, another Tool fan! Tool's The Patient will probably be one of the first things I play on these

BRSxIgnition has been bugging me about these, which is a pity, since I just dropped on anniversary edition M50s.

I've not had the opportunity to try M80s (nor was I interested to as I never seem to like wearing supra-aurals), so I don't know much about the often quoted baseline of these new upcoming M100s.

 

Anyone got a sort of a good description of the preview units so far? I also understand there are limited run pre-production units being made. I love limited/exclusive things.
