Val has said that getting these in time for Christmas is going to be really hard to do, but there is a possibility.

You can count on how many times the Vmoda 100 is being mentioned through this CanJam update, and compare with higher headphones: http://www.head-fi.org/t/623236/rocky-mountain-audiofest-denver-co-oct-12-14th-2012#post_8777555

 

I am so getting the Vmoda M100 once it released.

Sounds like the M-100 was only outperformed by the TH900 and bested everything else according to the reviewer.  Not surprising as I am currently listening to Emeli Sande and can't imagine better vocal reproduction.

Wow. The TH900 is one expensive headphone!

Well then, my burn-in period should do the trick. I'll post my new impressions on Friday-Saturday-ish.

What all was there? If there was an LCD-3, Stax rig, Tesla T1, or even just an HD600 there that person's credibility is permanently scarred.

I should have specified closed headphones.  Here is the quote from the Rock Mountain Audiofest forum:

 

Next, there was the V-moda M100 that caught my eye, or should I say ear - This is a $299 MSRP closed headphone that I think stands above other similarly priced phones such as the Shure SRH-840, Senn HD25-1 II and Amperior, Monster Inspiration, and even the Beyer DT-1350.  I heard all of these today, and the M80 is the one I would buy personally for stuffing in my travel bag or using around the house with just an iPhone, etc.  However, I found that they scale up nicely with an iPod/Pico Slim, and even more with the new $2700 April Music DAC/amp that Moon Audio was showing off.  I believe it's also better than the Denon D2000 and Ultrasone HFI-780, even though there aren't any here to compare.  It sounded fairly well balanced and transparent, without the typical "closed headphone" colorations, with better detail and transparency than I expected.  Comfort and seal is a step up from the previous "on ear" M80, and it's managed to surpass those which I almost bought after last year's CanJam.  I'd rather listen to the M100 than the new Denon D7100, although the much more costly TH-900 were a bit better in side by side comparison of closed phones (as they should be).  I'd actually prefer the Fostex T50RP over the D7100, although the T50RP lack the detail and air of the M100.

 

The M100 come with two removable cables, one with a microphone and buttons, and if I recall correctly the other without Mic that includes an attachment for piggybacking another pair of headphones in-line with the M80.  I don't recall if this setup has the two pairs of headphones in "parallel" or "serial".  I can ask that tomorrow.  They fold up fairly tightly, and come with a small hardshell case so they don't get crushed when packed in your backpack or luggage.  Isolation was maybe slightly less than the HD25 or SRH-840, not sure about the DT-1350, but better than the Monster Inspriation or even the Fostex TH-900.  I don't specifically recall how the isolation is vs the T50RP, but may also be better than those.  On a very tight budget, the T50RP are still a safe choice for closed headphone.

After sampling some music with the M-100, I am finding a new appreciation for acoustic guitar.  The presentation is so open, accurate and detailed. Anyone have any recommendations that include acoustic guitar?  Nothing too slow, more in the rock category.

This may be stating the obvious, so no offense intended here, but if you want some guitar based classic rock you can listen to Eric Clapton.

Sorry if this has been answered already, but is the MSRP of $299 confirmed?

Ottmar Liebert perhaps?

He's been around for a while and is one of my favourite "nuevo flamenco" artists.
Or maybe not. I didn't see your "nothing too slow" note. XD

any suggestions appreciated.  I have been enjoying Led Zeppelin.  Over the Hills and Far Away is a sonic masterpiece on the M-100.

Thanks miceblue, excellent recording, nice choice and something different from my usual music selection.

Leo Kottke, Acoustic Alchemy....not exactly in the rock vein but not slow or sleepy either.
