Unless some other smart businessman "gets it" quickly and opens up high-end headphone shops, I am going to start planning more and more V-MODA stores in America.

 

But, I am a maker and forward-thinker, not a retailer.  Somebody will eventually get it right and open up what is CLEARLY the modern record/stereo/car audio shop that is all about experience.

 

Ok, enough of my frustration and rants about America/Europe retailemmings.  And now, back to our original program topic: M-100!

Is there an ETA for the UK market yet?  Need a portable pair of headphones and don't know whether to plonk down some benjamins now for the M80 or wait if it's just round the corner...

Same for the german market. It's either these or the Sony MDR-1R which is already avaible. Need some outdoor cans to keep my ears warm this winter ;)

Val, I'm curious as to why you chose to use clips to secure the pads instead of a method like Audio Technica's over-ears (PRO700mk2, namely) where the pads just slip onto a ridge. There is no way these pads are going to survive repeated changes the way they are designed. Hell, they barely even survived the first time, I felt like I was going to tear them in half when I was taking them out.

 

This is something that will need to be a serious consideration if you're considering selling non-stock pads. Even in the tutorial video, the model's hands were shaking with force trying to take out / place in the pads.

I think the point is that they're not designed for repeated changes!  Only really to be replaced once and be done with it.

Just got my M100 an hour ago. Sounds pretty great so far but there's a bit more scuffs on the cans that I would like.

 

Ah well, back to listening. beyersmile.png

Exactly, I  designed the mechanism for the BEST SEAL, CONSISTENCY and SOUND, not to be taken on/off for fun. They are designed to be taken off when you want to replace them or MAYBE one time if you are a curious george like me.

 

I hate the cushions that wrap around a lip for multiple reasons I'll keep tight-lipped about.

How would you compare the mids/vocals, how forward are they in comparision to UE6000, Q40, ATH-PRO700MK2 etc. that you've had experience with. Is it more "in-your-face"-sounding or a bit more distant/laid-back/polite sounding?


I consider mids in both the UE6000 and M-100 to be right on the money, neither recessed nor forward as compared to the PRO700MK2 which I consider recessed.

Also rather interested in this...is Amazon UK going to be taking stock do you know?

With some more M-100 listening under my belt, I thought I would add a few comments.

 

  • The M-100 can be driven off my Iphone better than most headphones I have heard and certainly with better SQ.

 

  • At first, I couldn't discern differences in soundstage, thinking all closed headphones were the same.  Now that I am digging through my collection and enjoying artists I have not heard in some time, I am definitely picking up on and enjoying the increased soundstage.   So far, two artists in particular seem to benefit from the added soundstage the M-100 provides:  Pink Floyd and No Doubt.  If I close my eyes, I can identify the position of voices, instruments and effects; not far off what I heard auditioning the open HD558 the other day.

 

  • The clarity and highs are breathing new life into my 60's and 70's collection.
     

 

On a related note, has there been any consensus regarding the two M-100 threads?  Is there a "switch over", are they being consolidated, or should everything continue to be posted here?

Looks like V-Moda managed to create a rare product based on the impressions so far, they actually "underprice" it versus what the typical competeting brands would do, I wouldn't have been suprised to see if some other big companies had released such headphone in the 399~$499 price range. Looks like AKG K267 Tiesto, Sony MDR-1R, Sennheiser Momentum, PSB M4U 1, Yamaha Pro400/500 and Audio Technica ATH-WS99 which I see like its strongest competitors will face a really hard competitor they are not used to compete with.

It looks like you're inside a state college dorm room XD

 

Haha, thanks, bud. And I'm in an apartment, by the way. The dorms are waaaay smaller.

Enjoyed your video, BTW are there any areas to keep the cables in that case? Iike the LP2 case had some straps to keep them

ok...So where do I go to order these?  Not having luck with finding a site with them for sale, including Vmoda.  Maybe I'm blind?

Not available to the public yet. People are responding to the arrival of their pre-orders, a limited batch of 300.
