No, I don't think you'd be out $200+...that'll be crazy as it'll mean you'll be selling these at $100. But EveTan raised a good point about the 60-day test drive policy. It's in place for exactly your situation.

In his case his customs and shipping cost mounts to ~$400.

 

But I'd imagine that people would only buy them if they desperately need it a week or two before V-Moda ships them out. Unless they live in Canada, importing may take awhile...

You said you bent the cups, so clearly they aren't in the original condition from the factory.  That's what I was referring to.  And the used market doesn't care what you paid originally, especially if you paid customs and enormous shipping fees, that's not the buyers problem.  That's the risk you take when you spend boatloads of money to import stuff.  Sucks, but thats just the way it goes.

 

Good luck selling them...sucks they don't work for you.

I think BRS said that the shipping to V-Moda would be too expensive.

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

Stuff related to iMovie (Click to show)

 

Oh you're recording with iMovie? I'm not too sure then since I recorded my video with a digital camera (except for the first part in which I added the Boom Pro Mic audio track over the video's audio). I usually don't record video with the built-in iSight camera since its resolution isn't so great (I'm using a 2008 MacBook), but a quick Google search of "imovie audio desync record" shows a bunch of hits for that problem (right now the Apple discussion forums are conveniently "out of order").

 

You can try right-clicking on the video track, detaching the audio, and then moving the audio track. You can split the audio track too so if it de-syncs half-way through your video, you can try to split it there and reposition it to re-sync it.

 

I'm using iMovie version 9.0.4. blink.gif

 

I did a quick test of trying to record a video in Photo Booth, importing it into iMovie, and comparing it to just recording in iMovie and it looks like you get a lower frame-rate with just Photo Booth, so you can rule that option out.

....not awkward at all.

Well subjective preferences always play a role. Of course it's arguable that someone will say the new Ear Pods sound better than the M-100's.

From my experience, the M-100 is one of the best headphones I've ever tried. I prefer its sound over the HD650, and pretty much any other < $1000 headphone for regular, every-day use. It's not a perfect headphone by any means, but from the headphones I've heard, it's easily one of the best.

I find this discussion on selling rather tedious. If someone wants to sell an almost new product at almost new pricing it's their business. It's not as if the seller is holding a gun to anyone's head forcing them to buy. I really don't think it should be a subject of debate due to it not being anyone's business. I find it rather interesting that in the past there have been people who have commented on pricing of equipment on these forums saying the seller is pricing his/her stuff to high but when the same people who complain about high pricing post up a FS post their prices always seem to be jacked up sky high. Tsk tsk interesting how there's so many people out there who seem to want something for next to nothing.

 

@BRXsIgnition

 

I would go with the 60 day return policy. It would save you a lot of hassle of having to deal with low ballers and people who would message you saying they might be interested only to walk away 3 days later saying they changed their mind after the details on the deal are practically done. You would lose out a bit but it wouldn't be anything drastic and you would get the vast majority of your investment back.

@DF, I understand your opinion however the topic was brought here rather than an advertisement in the For Sale section. Whilst the price is entirely between the buyer/seller, the warranty transferability and the 60-day test drive is a fair discussion here. Just my 2 yen worth.

Well, it's not a terrible review, and he was being honest about how he felt about them - I think that the M-100 are just not "his thing".  Some people will pick sushi over a steak, and others will think he's crazy.  The M-100 are more like ribs anyway...

Bump for my question on direct comparisons with Beyer DT770 Pro 80's?

 

Anyone? smily_headphones1.gif

I think of the M-100 more as a gourmet hamburger with all the fixings. This thread is making me hungry blink.gif

I found that if I extended the headband so that the earpads were just resting on my ears and the headband only lightly touching my head it, rather counter-intuitively, resulted in little-to-no ear pain... Perhaps due to the ear pads distributing more weight to the surrounding areas of the ear.  Might be worth a try if you've exhausted other options.

Ah interesting to read another perspective.  I like how he comments under the article that he's too scared to post it here on head-fi.  :)

 

My first impressions of the M100 were slightly aligned with his points in that I thought the bass was quite intense and the mid-range lacking occasionally on some albums.  Since then, I'm not sure if it's just me that's adapted, or the fact that I always listen through my lovely Leckerton amp now, but I've grown to like the signature more and more.  At this point I absolutely love it for rock - the new Soundgarden album sounds wonderfully satisfying on the M100s.  There's certainly strong bass, but it doesn't detract from the clarity of the vocals and other instruments.  It sounds great.  My other cans include the Denon D2000 and some Grados (SR125 and RS1i).  At the moment I would say that the M100 outperforms them all for it's price.

Ah I remember that guy's custom shield design being posted here. XD

 

Yeah I agree with him on a lot of the points he brought up. For home listening, the M-100 is definitely not one of the best headphones you can get for $300.

 

On the other hand, I haven't found a < $1000 headphone that can compete with it for a mobile headphone. Again, my emphasis on the M-100 is for mobile listening since that's how I listen to my music 60% of the time. Having that external background noise really can change how things sound in a headphone.

 

.....my written review is almost done, I'm on the last section, final impressions, but it's 2:30 AM where I am and I'm pretty exhausted. Maybe I'll publish what I have so far and finish it up tomorrow.
