V-MODA M-100: Discussion/Feedback, Reviews, Pics, etc. - Page 531

post #7951 of 21165

I tried to do some casual burn in to see if it made any difference, I ran the Bink Audio Test CD a few times and went through most of my normal music library.  Only thing I can say is that I feel like I can have my volume lower than before to hear everything perfectly.

 

Also, I've gotten the itch to get new music from this year but have only found Django Django to be really good, any albums you guys feel go well with the M100's?

I'm not selling D600, they sound great for me, I just looking for headphones with better passive isolation so that I can listen with lower volume level since I use them at the subway every day. If comfort wouldn't be an issue I would burn M-100 more before making final decision

Goddamit man, this is my 3rd post after almost 2 years of being lurking around head fi.

 

I just can't wait to try them out.

 

Thanks Val for creating the perfect portable headphones it's just like you took everything we complain about and everything we love about this hobby and you just avoid it and resume it into a set of ******* sexyness.

I love everything about the M-100 except for one thing: The pads. The material is great but they are horribly sized. They're too big to be on-ear but too small to be over-ear, at least for me.

At least it's not as bad as the Beats Pros in that regard!

Order Date: August 28th 2012

This order is marked as Awaiting Shipment

I live in Canada and the wait is killing me. I am currently using the amperior for portable use, I can't wait to compare the two and share my thoughts to you guys!

I think my Java programming skills are too rusty. XD

Those "cushions" were the most uncomfortable things I have ever worn. I'm surprised they added them to the Mixr headphone.

In a nutshell, think on-ear Pros (exact same pads but smaller) with extremely tight clamp.

While I can't call them ideal, the pad size becomes less problematic by adjusting the fit via the metal headband. (see: judicious bending)

 

If you desire a truly helix-grating experience, however, try an L-cushed Grado.

Heh... the Mixr does indeed deserve its own circle of Hell: torturous clamping, rigid pads, and a metal frame that compounds said rigidity.  And that isn't to speak of the sound "quality."

 

Back on topic ~ I'm still searching for my optimal M-100 comfort positioning, but am now on my 3rd straight hour of listening without removing.
