Here is a video:

Thing is, when I start pulling, I feel like the pad is going to rip before it becomes unhooked - maybe I'm just too paranoid?

You are being too paranoid! If they do rip, then you'll still have the other pads. :P

I preferred to keep everything in one thread and somebody make "CHAPTERS" showing which pages cover what topics on the first POST!  Let's make it the biggest thread of all time with chapters was my idea a few months ago as it grew. 

 

...would a thread merge be possible/advisable?  It's your baby.  Make it hap'n, cap'n!

 

And yes, do try the Audirvana Plus w/Direct (beta) pairing.  With the D-fly, this could be one monster of a transportable setup! (or, in my case, the small at-home/keep-the-woman-happy footprint I've been looking for...)

Mkay - did it. Seems like the seal is intact, but I definitely will not be doing this often at all. All I know is that if something aint broke, don't even TRY to fix it.

How did you do it? I tried to pull them off in my unboxing video and the pads were in there pretty good. V-MODA is sending me a white pair of M-100 earpads since I too ordered white and had grey installed.

 

Also, nice shields. I'm slightly disappointed that mine came out much smaller than I had it on the template. I submitted the LP/LP2 Illustrator template with my vector art drawing and I had my design taking up as much space as possible within the green "do not cross" lines.

I made sure to make it abundantly clear I wanted my shields as big and as centered as possible, I provided positioning samples for both logos, as well as the actual vectors themselves. I'm glad they got it perfect.

 

Anyway, about the pads, hook two or three fingers on the inside of the pad on one edge, and your thumb on the outside of the same edge. Don't pull it any direction but AWAY from the cup. Don't worry about ripping the pad, as long as you pull the cup away from the pad, and vice versa, they should pop off safely. Next, for applying them, just press the pad edges under the prongs that surround the cup. Make sure that the edge of the pad is under each and every prong. 

 

Try to get this right the first time - tying multiple times will decrease/wear down the pad seal.

Ah I see. I probably should have said "maximize the image" as well. :/

And thanks for the earcup replacement instructions. It looks like the earpads are attached like my HD238. When I take the pads off of those, the plastic ring on the earpads that hold them in place to the earcup fractures, which decreases the integrity of the structure. Hopefully the M-100's won't be that extreme...

As for my M-100:
  • 3 more days of pink noise burn-in (process is finished on Friday morning)
  • Give them a listen and write down impressions
  • Wear the M-100's throughout school on Friday without music to test isolation and allow headphones to break-in for a few hours
  • While still at school, after headphone break-in process, try out the M-100's while walking around campus and on the bus back home (write down impressions)
  • Back at home, give them a good listen on my more proper setup (MacBook + Audirvana + FiiO E7, and CD player transport + Yamaha receiver)
  • On Saturday I'll attempt to switch earpad colours and see if anything changes
  • Take photos and write-up final impressions
  • Post review on Sunday hopefully

Yep, I feel for you young bopper. I've had various run ins with Canada Post concerning their piss poor service. When I ordered my Studio V I got tracking information my PO Box was carded but when I checked there was no card to be found. It took 3 days of calling their customer service to find out my player was in the post office where my PO Box is located. Apparently somebody forgot to place the pickup card in my box and nobody wanted to bother checking the back when I inquired why tracking was showing carded but no card in my box. The worst incident I ever had with them was last year when I ordered a Acer desktop tower from FutureShop during their online Boxing Day sale. The stupid post guy left a clearly marked box saying Acer Desktop Solutions on my front steps for everyone who happened to walk by to see. Did I mention I live 2 blocks from a junior and senior high school and 1 block away from a very busy mall. It was a miracle nobody grabbed the box and walked off with it. Man did I tear a strip off the Canada Post guy when I saw his delivery truck zooming around my area the next day.

Updated my post on page 3 with my thoughts after a long day today with the M-100s

edited til I can repost. I agree everybody should be able to make it their own way! This is why the template is helping as people can now make fuller size designs fit around the bolts too! I'll just post a few examples of my favorites.

But be careful if the design is too heavy and stretches to the borders outside the strike zone it may look a bit odd, and the same goes for too small! It's tough to balance sizing. I learned this when we made lots of shirts and the XS to XL needs different print sizes!

Cheers to making it your own...

thanks for the review AnakChan!

to each his own, val. but, and i know you're a perfectionist, but i feel that if a template is offered and the customer uses it, he/she expects the design to accomodate the spacing/sizing of that specification. After all, i think it can be presumed that the customer spent some time to make their own design to fit the template.

 

not that i've had problems. mine have turned out great and to the fit i wanted (within safety lines)

I agree with this. I spent a good chunk of time learning how to use Illustrator (I had no prior knowledge of what Illustrator could do) so that I can get things lined up the way I wanted to, and all within the green "do not cross" lines. I had to tweak my heart shape numerous times so that, to me, it looked good vertically and horizontally...which ultimately led to where/what size my text would be. >.>

Since we added the template we have seen more designs optimized for the hex.

A LONG time ago when we launched we limited the color combos as one of my designers talked me into it for a few days somehow. I'm so glad we let everybody have freedom as I've seen some wildly cool customs go through that I would have never imagined!

Hm, I got a mail from V-MODA, asking me to review my recently bought product. 

I haven't gotten my M100's yet. At least I haven't been notified that they've arrived so that I can go pick them up.

Getting anxious over here. :(
