Ok guys, I'm flying to Asia to finish the M-100 and launch V-MODA in China, I DJ in Beijing! I won't come home til its done, so wish me luck and I'll appreciate lots of feedback here over the coming weeks.
I'm going to try a lot of final things based off the input here as well as the audiophile, consumer and musician shows lately, thanks everybody!
Stay tuned, literally.
Good luck, and we'll stay tuned! I'm first in line for the M-100. I have faith in you. My M-80's blow my friends away when they put em on for a listen. They're mostly mainstream casual listeners, and the response is always, "Oh, you have REAL headphones!". . . and I'm like, "Yup."
Here's a bit of a new twist on my end: I heard some dubstep about a year and a half ago, but didn't really think much of it. I love my old trance albums from the late 90's- early 2000's like TranceGlobalNation and the Trance Nation series. I kinda think dubstep perfectly reflects the attention deficit disorder of the younger generation (I'm 32, and still consider myself pretty young---I'm talking about the teens, tweens, and young twenty-somethings). But after seeing Skrillex win 3 Grammys, I came back to dupstep and EDM in general, and I gotta confess that I like some of it, but sometimes I feel that I'm missing some of the eyeball-shaking bass drops in my M-80s. Does that mean I want better extension? Or more sub-bass? I'm a bit new to the terminology. I realize I could go for the LP2s, but I kinda hope that the M-100 fills in the gap between a total basshead can and an audiophile setup. Realistically, I'm willing to bet that the circumaural design and larger driver will take care of my wishes rather nicely :) Just a thought. No offense to the "gotta be balanced " crowd.
