Cannot agree enough.

Teaser is still better than darkenss (being left in the dark that is) :p

Val is obviously too busy with wenching and answering summons to tell us anything.  He knows we're like crackheads, and will keep coming back.

That analogy is just too good for this situation.. so true.. 

 

As long as they bring back the teal shields they show on their site - they seem to have had them before - I'm happy.

Alright, I'm gonna post something M-100 related (sorta)! Wish me luck!

 

I know I just posted what I thought was gonna be my shield design a few pages ago, but I've been seriously debating and I think I'm actually gonna go with this instead:

 

aurastys.jpg  Aurastys 2.jpg

 

Yes, this is the same image from my user icon there. It's the album cover to 'Rising Ruins' by Aurastys, which is one of Renard Queenston's aliases (link for the album, if you like ambient): http://lapfox.bandcamp.com/album/rising-ruins

 

I posted the original image and the polarized image because I'm torn between whether I should get a white shield with the black design, or a black shield with the white design.

 

Thoughts/suggestions?

Hey, come on now, I just offered a perfectly valid point of discussion that did not include watches.

 

Or shoes.

We could start talking about women who would look hot wearing V-Modas, but I have a feeling that would deteriorate and digress quickly.

For me, her personality cancels out anything positive about her physical appearance.  However, I would welcome any photos of Sophia Vergara wearing V-Modas.

In the interest of passing time, would anyone like to guess on the preorder/release date of preproduction units? 

 

Since the target mass production general release date I believe is August 8th, I'm thinking the preproduction units would be shipped out at least two weeks earlier- July 23rd.  To provide a reasonable time window for estimating preproduction demand for units produced  (Was it 300 white and 300 Shadow?) compared to quantities needed for V-Moda's employees, sales staff, friends, family and associates of Val, reviewers, distributors, Head-fiers and maybe even some Facebook followers, I would think preorders for preproduction units would start Monday, July 9th.

 

I would also be curious if anyone knows how V-Moda has handled preorders in the past.  Specifically, with limited quantities, how V-Moda would determine priority.  Do they use any, all or a combination of the following criteria:

 

  • Lottery
  • Quantity/quality of posts on M-100 forum
  • First come/first served
  • Have enough for all Head-fiers

 

I'm also wondering if you think we would be PM'd an ordering code or if it would be posted by Val in the forum.  There are so many posts here, but I'm not sure how many are actually unique posters.  I know Val said he would let us know when he is ready, but as the release is imminent after such a long buildup, I feel compelled to ask the question.

I think they'll be decided by who has the best username.

And who doesn't like a ham sandwich? wink_face.gif

 

But in all seriousness I just picked up an M-80 which suits my needs more than an M-100 would, so I'm just here for the fun of it.  Seems silly to be excited about a product I probably won't own for a long time if ever, but Val the Hype Machine and his eager minions chomping at the bit for the smallest tidbit of information he can give make this a really fun thread to watch.

I'm guessing prominent reviewers get the first batch of what they have, and whatever is left over might get sold off to the lucky addicts.  It's like throwing one piece of fish food in the fish bowl and watching them all swarm on it...

Quick! derail the thread so people won't come as often! so when Val finally posts the PPUs up for sale, there wouldn't be as much competition tongue_smile.gif

It was 200 of each, 400 total - I also believe that some of them would be going to the media, like Gawker, Wired, Engadget, etc.

 

I think that the priority would go to those with comparable headphones, reviewing experience, and a good post count. I haven't done many reviews, but I can do a dtailed comparison of the M50 vs the M-100 that would knock Val's socks off - at least I hope.

 

But it's really all in Val's head, we won't really know until he tells us.
