M-80s are like 180 grams while M-100s are like 260+ grams lol.

that's so bizarre O_o...perhaps its just that they are lighter relative to their size?...idk, but they do feel very light weight lol

Probably just cognitive dissonance!  It looks like it should be really heavy but isn't, so it kind of doubles the effect.

I brought this up a few hundred pages ago and El Nero and others concurred that they, too, would love to see a leather earpad option.  When I did a bit of research, I noticed that someone else had asked for that option for their M-80s months before.

 

We can't do mods on other earpads and have them fit because of V-Moda's specific design.

 

In the overly literal sense, I think you're twenty-fourth and I'm fifth in line for leather earpads (since I expect at least four other people mentioned their interest before I did). 

 

But fortunately, if Mr. Kolton ever makes leather pads available, no line will be necessary.

 

What's that?  You say you were speaking metaphorically and only meant to emphasize your enthusiasm for the idea?  Never mind. . . .

Just received that fateful shipping notice email and, yes, my order still reads Awaiting Shipment

 

However, the tracking number works.  

 

Spoke to someone at customer service today to ask how everyone's order is coming.  The gentlemen yodeled that the only remaining hitch was the detained shipment of matte black headphones tweeted by Mr. Kolton. He said that everyone should be taken care of by next week.

 

I mention this not to revive people's kvetch-fest about shipping, but rather to reassure the final round of customers they're being taken care of.  I wouldn't care if I were last person in the VTF queue: That final customer is as important as I, and I'm as important as the first.

Yep that was me. Seriously though, I was just minding my own business and I still wonder til this day what was with that kid and his Solo's. If you thought that was funny you should have read my entry awhile back on another thread involving this one guy I've dubbed Blue Shirt Apple Hipster Dude and his girlfriend Buffy The Vampire Slayer. I seem to meet all the real interesting people when I'm out and about.

My M-80s just arrived last week. They sound absolutely fantastic for being portable cans at that pricepoint. 

Guess my wallet gonna have to tank another few bucks for the M-100.

Wish V-moda could get some resellers in the European Nordic marked.

While not the original quote, you can find the story in the middle of this page http://www.head-fi.org/t/540242/getting-called-out-for-not-wearing-the-beats/2205

 

P.S. I can NOT believe I found it in that hot mess of a thread.

 

P.S.S. Also, in an unfortunate turn of events, I just got done with one of my early gen-eds and am having my usual hour lunch break before the rest of my classes. The USPS guy tried to deliver while I was in class of course, and now all I have to do is drive to the office and pick up my sweet, sweet M100. Problem is, the driver is still out delivering, so I can't go get it now during my lunch break, and once I get back to classes I go straight through, 2-10 pm. I guess I have a dinner break between 6-7, but the office closes at 6:30. Maybe if I sprint to my car after class and speed furiously...

 

 

Also, if only driving worked like video games :L
