Oh yeah, Val never said this but this is my personal take based on watching some of Val's interaction on head-fi. The M-80 and the M-100 in my mind is V-MODA's mid tier consumer line, the LP-2 being their entry level basshead can. While the M-100 thread was in full runaway train hype mode I couldn't help but notice how Val seemed to be gauging peoples reaction on the thread to certain questions/statements involving aesthetics vs sound signature. He seemed at times to be carefully asking ( think steering the conversation) certain people what the modern day under 30 something audiophile was looking for in a top tier can. This steering of the conversation got more inquisitive once he mentioned the Revolver and the Milano. My theory is the Revolver and the Milano will not be consumer grade headphones but instead will be Val's answer to top tier audiophile grade bassy headphones. Again, Val never implied this. This is all just a lot of conjecture on my part based on how he acted/reacted on the thread and based on some of the vague veiled answers he gave to the thread members concerning future headphone releases.
Before anyone says it, nooooo I wasn't stalking the man I was just taking notes. Call me an online people watcher.
