They're not tight or uncomfortable, although I do occasionally have to move them slightly just to let the skin around my ears get some air (but hey, that's going to be an issue with any headphone of this type).

 

They're also fine for walking around and travelling with, which I do quite a lot of. Again, not too heavy and not too tight. 

 

I haven't tried to wear them while undertaking any exercise, but I'm not sure I'd want to risk dropping and potentially damaging them while out running or at the gym!


They are actually better for exercise than most headphones on the market- the clamp is just right and they are light enough that they don't slip.

Maybe my head size is smaller than the average person. I have the headband adjusted to 0 and I've tried twisting the headband to make a tighter clamping force. For normal use it's fine, but when I try to do pushups or jogging, the headband tends to slip off my head. :x

Same here. Also when out doing yardwork, I tend to sweat and my earpads get wet lol.

Are these the bassiest cans out there? And the bassiest ones V moda makes? Ive already bought and sold the hdj2000, k181dj, and xb700. I NEED MOAR BASS

No, there are much bassier headphones I guess... V-Modas own LP/LP2 has more bass than the M-100 as well.

You might want to take a look at bass boosting amps such as the ZO2... Though IMO the result must be a complete vibrating mess ;-) At least Boost on the ZO2 is adjustable.

No, M-100 aims for quality over quantity.  For "MOAR" bass you may want to check out the NuForce HP-800.  If that isn't enough bass for you, you may need to strap two subwoofers to your head.

 

 

EDIT: Just noticed these on sale

NuForce bills the 800 as a monitor/reference class headphone, but youre saying its bass heavy? Can it realistically be used for studio/monitoring purposes?

IMO, no way. It is too colored, but is a solid sounding headphone with heavy, commanding bass.  Mids and highs are certainly respectable.   I never believe the marketing hype.  The Velodyne VTrue calls itself an audiophile headphone and if you heard them you would understand that how ridiculous that claim is.

A cursory glance at some reviews places it in the bassy category, but not significantly bassier than something like the beats studio?

Significant is a relative term.  I consider them bassier than the Beats Studio with better overall SQ for less than half the price.  When you say significantly bassier than the Beats Studio, there are limits to the bass "feel" that any headphone can produce and they certainly can't replicate a good subwoofer which you can feel in your toes. 

 

Another headphone/combo that would be about as good as it gets for the price regarding bass + overall SQ would be the M-Audio Q40 paired with a FiiO E11 portable amp.  This is the best "wow factor" bass with high quality sound I have heard for the price.

 

The bassiest headphones I know of are the Sony XB500 and V-Moda LP, but they are not even close to studio quality- very dark.

 

Since bass seems to be your priority, you may want to take this discussion to the basshead club.

coming from a pair of Q701's I'm curious as to whether these headphones still have presence and clarity in the mids and highs? definitely interested in these headphones as a replacement due to the portability and bass presence 

 

on a side note does anyone know if the headband on the shadow model is difficult to keep clean or not sue to it being made of fabric unlike the other two colours?

The fabric is synthetic and I have not had any problems even though I own the white which would show more.  The M-100 absolutely has good clarity and extension in the mids and highs which is one of the things that makes them special and unique as a basshead can.

M100 definetly has a great amount of bass.

nice

i agree

I agree
