Almost £46 is VAT. I don't know what the US equivalent sales tax is but we have 20% mad.gif

That's not really down to V Moda, but sure stings.

what the hell, £46 vat! I'm gonna have to go down to the lp2s then because that is just ridiculous. I wouldn't have expected it to be v-modas fault (and I knew it wasn't). This is just ridiculous. does anyone know how good the lp2s sound with fiio e11 with a bit of eq'ing

I was just wondering along similar lines also... How the lp/lp2 would sound when it has had the pads stuffed miceblue style, the vents on the outside covered, and if those two fail to decrease the bass enough some eq-ing?

This isn't an angry grrr post this is just confused post, somebody please help me...

Where are you looking? I looked at Amazon.co.uk, and they are not listed yet?

 

I've bought them at V-Moda, and I'm hoping they don't want any more cash once they arrive here :D

All in all, if that is the case, £220 including an audio only cable

 

EDIT:

 

Never mind; they just don't have an image yet...

I seriously hope they don't charge me duty on mine.

 

An expensive headphone. I just hope they are worth it

Reading the comments on Headfonia and it seems its harder to sell at retail value than I thought it would be rolleyes.gif

 

If anyone is interested, I lowered the price to $250 within the US. PM me, the headphones will be returned within the next few days

Looking to get a Momentum or some other headphone, find these too uncomfortable.

I bought the M100 from VModa's website. I'm in the UK. Does it mean mean I'll have to pay taxes in it arrives here? It happened once to me when buying some stuff in ebay so... I'm confused now :S

Did not expect them to be £270. I was thinking (or hoping) that they would be closer to the 200 mark.
That's made my decision very easy, ill pick up the m-80s now for £111. Will check out the m-100s at a later date when the price drops.

Hey guys. Been a little bit!

 

Just wanted to ask: where the hell are the corks? I just realized I don't have them and after scouring the box and accessories that come with the M-100's, I can't find them. Any ideas..? Maybe I simply didn't get any.

Welcome back!

I remember finding mine in between the ear cups of the M-100's.

I would contact support and ask them to send them to you if you can't find them.

I may actually cancel my pre-order and go for the M-80's.

I've heard too many negative comments on the M-100's now to actually recommend them.

 

Since I'm without headphones now, I want a good pair now really.

 

The M-80's apart from the treble issue that has been mentioned seem to be better for audiophile grade headphones than the M-100's will ever be.

Is that a correct assumption to make?

Or should I just wait and make my own decision once I listen to them, and send them back and get the M-80's if I find they are too bass heavy?

That depends. You will have to see when they arrive at your door basically

I think you should wait,

Just think there are 147 people (including myself) who own the M-100's and not everyone has posted a review or their comments on them. So there really aren't that many negative comments.

And I would say that audiophile assumption is incorrect as the M-100's sound better than the M-80s to Most people.

And do you prefer a more neutral sounding headphone or what is your preference?

Cheers for the solid reply :)

 

Hmm, I don't know. I mean the only headphones I have owned have been the PX-100's, the Koss Portapros , and then the PX-100 ii's, but that broke yesterday on the left ear due to the cable (one day after ordering the M-100's) even though they have been working for more than 2 years with non-stop use. It was just random.

 

I didn't like the Koss Portapro's due to the fact I thought the bass was too muddy compared with the PX-100's. I also felt they didn't extend almost as far in the upper ranges either, and just sounded off. That is why I went back to the PX-100 in the form of the ii's.

 

I would like a headphone with more bass, as the PX-100's , even though they sound okay for trance music, they don't give that thump needed.

That said, I do like a nice tonal response I believe throughout the ranges, and punchy bass is important. I don't want loose sounding bass.

 

One gripe I have about the PX-100's is the mids being veiled, and I can hear that in the music (or at least, I could), but I was happy with the quality. I just wanted something that would up this, and enhance my listening experience, which is where I found the M-80's.

 

So I was just hoping from initial reviews, that the M-100's would trounce the PX-100's in everything, and would be a very worthwhile upgrade in sound quality on all counts, after finding out they were apparently much better than the M-80's in most areas (which I was on the fence of buying before hearing about the M-100's)

 

I guess I just don't want to buy a headphone that has such pronounced bass that it would ruin music for me, and I listen to a lot of genres, from classical to trance to rock, to metal, to pop, to celtic new age stuff.

But many reviews are stating completely different things... and its confusing.

If the bass is as some reviewers have said, that they don't colour the mids, and the sound clarity is amazing, and tonnes better than what I've got now, I would love them.

But that isn't the impression I have got on a lot of reviews. I don't want to go around, and think to myself "These are basically built for bass heads".

I'm not in anyway a bass head. I prefer quality and detail over solid bass, but do want more bass.

 

I basically want a good quality headphone, that has details for the price, that compared to the headphones I had, notice subtle parts in music that I couldn't hear before. If the M-100's can offer that, over the M-100's then fair enough :D

 

But basically, I want a headphone I can feel I can be proud of, as I only really ever have one for all styles, and can say to myself "I think I've bought the best headphones for the money I paid here, and the clarity is simply amazing, and I can hear details I couldn't before, and it all sounds balanced"

Portability is a must too, as when out and about, I tend to wear them resting on my shoulders.

I don't want to have to worry about amping for example, and the M-80 and M-100's seem to tick both those boxes.

 

The M-80's just seem to have gotten more solid reviews all around, whereas the M-100's have been a mixed affair and have been stated as being bass head headphones, but have also been stated to sound better than the M-80's...

I auditioned the M-80 several months ago and own the M-100.  The M-80 is a very good headphone, but if I purchased the M-80, then heard the M-100, I would return or sell the M-80 because the M-100 is something special to my ears.  For me, they just do everything bigger and better.

I really do appreciate your opinion Craigster as its really what I want to find the M-100's do for me too. I just don't want a headphone that has been purely built for bass, which is how some reviews have described it.

It's not my main focus, and is why I didn't opt for an LP or LP2 when I read about them, and aimed straight towards the more audiophile focused M-80's, but if the M-100's is a more LP3 type signature then...
