Let the nagging begin... Seriously, can you guys stop being so demanding? It is extremely annoying to go through posts of people whining and whining for more Val, more pics, more info, oh Val but you said, oh Val please! He's pretty much told you everything. We know what it looks like, we know what accessories it'll come with, we know the sound sig, we even know what the damn box looks like
Now here's an attempt to put some life back in this thread:
I'll be buying a white M-100, with gold shields. I doubt the stock headphone comes in that color scheme, so I'll probably have to order custom shields. I'd like my design to be as clean as possible so I won't be getting any custom artwork or anything. Maybe I'll put the v-moda logo on it. I'm planning on plugging these sex cannons into my Motorola Droid Razr Maxx (for portable use) or into my yet unknown amp/dac (debating between the ~$100 models, but may be willing to go as high as the Audinst).
The first song I'll probably play is Drops of Jupiter by Train. There's just so many instruments in that song, and I've listened to it countless times, so I know this song well. I'll also be playing lots of Better than Ezra, Five for Fighting, and OneRepublic. I'll move on to piano/classical/orchestral music. My favorite artist is Yiruma, but I also like the soundtrack to To The Moon (game) and Master & Commander (film). Finally, I'll be playing some EDM, and electronic music through these babies, which is what they were meant for. I already know my first song (in this genre): Cascade by Tommy Trash. I'll also be playing some Hardwell, Nicky Romero, Project 46, and of course, Avicii (no Levels though, I have it, it's a good song, but its way too overplayed). I'm definitely looking forward to use these as my DJ headphones.
This will be my first step into full-size headphones, and I'm excited (I've always been an IEM guy). Other headphones I've been looking at include: Philips Fidelio L1 and the AKG K550, both of which are also $300. They are also sex cannons, but they feel a little too old for my tastes. This is the final year of my teens, and I'm looking for something more exciting. Don't get me wrong, the Philips and the AKG still look amazing.
In all, I'd like to thank Val for piquing my interest in full-size headphones. If it wasn't for the M100's, I'd never look into full-size headphones. I've also never spent more than $150 on earphones, let alone headphones.
