I'd love to hear your reasoning.

Why do you say they're not worth it? You'd pay $$$ for an outdated pocket PC, but this hp isn't worth it? I think this is worth the money, and I'm most likely not alone. IF it sounds as good as I think it will,...a review of the sq will make or break it.

Trying to ask this question calmly as dozens of Head-fiers yell at their monitors- what are you basing that on?

The Beyerdynamic DT1350 exists.

Which doesn't sound as good as the predecessor of these cans?

Let me rephrase- if you have an intelligent, articulate, well- thought response, we would love to hear it.

M80>DT1350, everyday of the week. In everything, SQ, Buildquality and especially design. 

Imo.

The DT1350 is $300. It is definitely the best in its price range. 

 

Neutral, bottomless bass response, insane detail retrieval, awesome sense of rhythm (PRaT), great soundstage, precise imaging, easy to drive, indestructable build quality... the list goes on.

Well, then we disagree.

Sound quality is far superior. Period. The M80 has half the resolution. It also doesn't have the amazing PRaT of the 1350s, which is what makes the 1350s so much fun to listen to.

 

The 1350's are all nextel coated aluminum. The headband is spring-steel. The only plastic part is the pivot point on the headband. How can the mostly plastic M80 be built better? It's not physically possible.

 

Design is opinion. I do agree that the M-80 looks nicer.

 

Let me clarify something: I have heard the M-80 and I do like them. But, the DT1350 just gives you so much more, and I can't see the M-100 being that much better than the M-80.

Why not both?

 

Man, I'd love to hear someone who owns the Beyerdynamic DT1350 to come out and speak. Roma? Oh, and me.

 

I love my DT1350's, but that doesn't mean that they're the only can around for me. Prejudicing yourself before the purchase based on price (although I suppose I am a bit guilty of this with the earpods) is always going to limit your field of vision. Armagaeis did a review/comparison of some portable cans, and I highly agree with his opinion that the DT1350's are ultimately a bit sterile for quite a few songs. Gorgeous, gorgeous vocals, but sometimes it just doesn't groove with music as well as other cans.

...they're also on-ear and have been measured to have SQ that varies considerably from unit to unit.  Concerning the latter attribute, V-MODA has prided itself on minimizing anomalies, both aural and physical, within a product line.  Referencing the former, I've never owned/auditioned a supra-aural headphone that didn't cause me a level of discomfort.  Then again, it's institution for me to rally through no less than 3 full albums end-to-end at least a few nights per week.

 

The valuation of the M-100, as with every other consumer good, will be subjective.

Wow.  Troll much?  I don't KNOW that they will be worth $299, but it is certainly reasonable to consider it a possibility.  Also, you can't conclude that the M-100 is not "worth that" just because another headphone that you like is priced a little bit lower.  Worth is not calculated relative to other models of headphones.  Value, maybe.  Worth is calculated based on an individuals willingness to pay for something, or on the cost of the raw materials and labor required to build something.  It is clear that you have already concluded that this headphone is not worth much to you.  Given that you likely have not heard one yet, this just makes you look like a fool.  Overall, I would say that an audiophile-leaning, presumably well-made circumaural headphone priced at $299 is on the lower end of what most would consider the average price.
