post #9346 of 20988

My video review will be coming sometime either this week or next. iMovie just wasn't cutting it for me, so I finally got Final Cut Pro. We'll see how that works.

iMovie '11 spent 9 hours "finalizing" my movie, and YouTube took about another 3 hours to upload it.

 

Then again, my video is 30 minutes long. So yeah... XD

Are you still planning to write a review for these? You can at least write something about the sound quality of the M-100 and how it compares to other headphones you've heard. That in itself is still a really valuable bit of knowledge for readers out there.

I will definitely be putting my review out once I get my AKG K267's. I have almost all of my M-100 review written up, but I haven't released it because I was waiting for the AKG's, as well as seeing if any of my issues solved themselves over time.

 

Now that I know the fit can't get much better than it is, I will finish up the last of my impressions and release them sometime soon. Would you (Head-Fi) want it to be a stand-alone review? Or a comparisson once I get my AKG K267's? I have most of it written, so I don't need to worry about my memory being shady.

I have these in White. I plan on keeping my custom shields and Val's message, but I am selling everything else that comes with them - faders, case, cables, everything. PM me if you're still interested. I'd like to sell them for $300 + Shipping, that way I won't lose TOO much of my investment. Is that okay?

I would say to post a review on the official M-100 product page, and then when you get the K267's post the comparison in the Mid-Fi Battle thread.

 

I think posting a comparison review between the M-100 and the K267 on the M-100 product page might be off-topic-ish.

300 (which is retail) for used bent headphones.  Haha.  Awesome.

post #9352 of 20988

Well in all fairness to BRSxIgnition, his customs and faster shipping option had his investment go up to $450, so I can see how for him $300 is still a relatively small piece of the puzzle after only one month of use. I don't think I'd buy it at that price for used headphones + shipping but hey, someone might really want them.

At least they would better know when they would ship. ;P

Touche'.  LOL...still wondering if I'll ever get mine.  Still got a month or so I'd imagine.  The wait is killing me!

Maybe you could help me then?

 

Every time I record using iMovie '11, the audio and video de-synchs over time, making it rather impossible to fix. Have you experienced this? Mine's version 9.0.8

Barely used, fully burnt in, non-bent headphones you mean, surely?

There are no visible bends on any surface of the headphone. I've just made it to the cups conform more easily to the side of the head, rather than being fully parallel to each other and uncomfortable.

I've kept my headphones in mint condition, so $300 is hardly asking much. They will be $299 for the same condition and no extras like I am including. I think it's fair.

So, apparently these are some of the best ~$300 portable headphones out there now. Is it true? Or is there another pair of headphones for the price that competes?

Well that's definitely cheaper than the $2499 asked on eBay ;-).

 

Non-Sales opinion: Since you've barely used your M-100 I think that could be a reason why you still feel it hurting your head. My M-100 took quite regular use and now I probably can wear it for about 4 hrs or there abouts (not tried longer for other reasons).

 

Sales opinion: $300 is reasonable for someone who upmost cannot wait until V-Moda starts shipping the pre-orders & doesn't care about warranty transfers. If memory serves me correctly the warranty is not transferable. Of course the buyer could ship it back to you and you back to V-Moda but that'll depend if the buyer finds it tedious. You may want to state the status of the cables if they're frayed or not.

Do you guys know, for the 60 day test drive, if I need a "reason" for return? Or can I return it if I am unsatisfied.

Thanks.

By "barely used" I meant to make the point that they have almost no signs of being warn repeatedly. I've worn them on quite a few bus trips, and at home quite a bit - but even after around 50+ hours of on-the-head use, they still haven't become comfortable for me to wear more than an hour. I don't know what is causing it for me, but I do know I have a picky head, as it also happened with my TMA-1 headphones. I also haven't used my warranty, but that's partially because the QR scan link doesn't work for me.

Cables are not frayed at all, boom mic cable and share play cable haven't even been used. I just don't want to be out $200+ after selling these.
