V-MODA M-100: Discussion/Feedback, Reviews, Pics, etc. - Page 247

Yep I think it's down.  I also think it was hijacked a couple of weeks ago.  When I would log onto the page there was some other company running somehting on a split page.  It was rather strange.

I couldn't resist testing this small color tweak again on the pic Val posted, check this side by side comparision to make up your mind easier:

 

10001000

 

 

 

I would just love to have a dark red/brownish (well similar color as the "V" on the headband) frames with a glossy finish. Would make it slightly more luxurious looking IMO.

well I'm pretty dead set now haha. I hope VMODA support is nice enough to let me engrave the brushed metal shields

3) Prime Shipping options on Amazon.com

Since we'll have no retail stores at the moment in USA selling M-100, can you think of a way for users to allow users to try them out locally?  This may be our best "local user experience"

Any other ideas welcome.  Obviously, V-MODA is working on our OWN stores now in LA, NYC, LV and in China/HK.  But, until they are completed I want the best of both worlds.


I may announce a few retailers in the future, but as you can see we are focused on agility of 1-day customization and 100% satisfaction.

Maybe group meets, loaners, etc...

EDIT:
I actually ENCOURAGE those who are on the borderline to buy M-100 from V-MODA.com and if you don't like them, return them.  We have seen less than 5% returns so we are very confident this is a product you'll love.  And if not, we can refurbish and sell to those who couldn't afford at full price so it is a win-win!

I buy everything off of amazon THANK YOU!!!!!!!

I've been following this for weeks! I'm starting to break a sweat... gs1000.gif

Sponsor a local event (ie. sports, concerts, raceway) and have a good dj there, or team with the top radio station at events they are covering. If there is a local young celebrity, like a big biker/skater/actor/etc, get them to show up and endorse. The mall was a good idea too.

Well.. time to stop lurking.

 

Val I just wanted to thank you for all the hard work, but also hope you guys don't forget the Canadian neighbors in the great white north when looking at doing retail V-moda stores... mind you I would imagine it'll take a while to do just nationally for you, but just a thought anyway.

 

Also to be honest I actually am one of those guys who's kind of on the fence about getting the M-100's since I've been happy with my AKG's for years... that said I've been lurking here for a while and recently almost daily thinking about these M-100s... I think I'm probably going to jump in line once they go up for sale...

Welcome to head-fi and sorry for your wallet, bem vindo ,Nonetheless!

Val,

 

I like the sound of Signature Series.  I think all of the other names are too...corny and childish.  Thats just my own opinion.  I wouldn't exactly want to a buy a $300 headphone called the Valkyrie.  Instead, the M-100 Signature Series sounds like an actual high end headphone.

 

Also, one retailer I would suggest would be Best Buy.  I can imagine it would be a little hard since they have huge hard-ons for Monster Beats and Skullcandy.  In fact, I actually like their naming schemes, they sound simple and cool (ie Beats Solo, Aviators, etc).  They are successful because they are prominently displayed in Bestbuy stores.  Another option that I would highly recommend would be advertising (see Bose) in magazines, etc.

 

I hope all is going well for you and your company.

Well Ultrasone already have Signature series.

post #3703 of 21063
A big THANK YOU to Val with all the updates!! I love that refurb idea as well - that's pretty cool and thoughtful for anyone who can't afford the M-100 at full retail.

I like M-100 Signature Series (not M-100 SS however as I thought of the 'Third Reich' as well when I read that lol). However I am not sure if you will have issues with Ultrasone over this. It's possible.

Other ideas:
M-100 Exclusive
M-100 Exlusive Collection
M-100 VvV Signature Collection

yeah... interestingly huge companies will spend billions on marketing/branding to come up with a name that tests well with focus groups, is well received on the market across a range of demographics and therefore sells a large number of units.  Mostly because of head shrinkers.  But they're still delivering a substandard product.

 

I mean I suppose in the end its really about what kind of image Val wants to put across to the company with the names... young/old demographic etc... but of course in the end the name is all about the connotation... Signature Series makes me think of a stodgey old dude listening to classics... which could be a good image.  Also sounds a bit more professional.

 

Just depends what he's going for...
