Part-Time Audiophile's first video on the Geek.

 

He doesn't say much about it, but at least you get to see Scot dance around.

First thing that popped up in my mind. XD


He hasn't even used it yet! frown.gif

Also, the legend should come in handy for the first few times using it, but it looks kind of ugly in my honest opinion: slapping a giant label on the back of such a beautiful piece of hardware.

He might not have used the final production version, but I'm sure he's been running around with a prototype for some time. He's good friends with Gavin, AFAIK.

 

Agreed about the legend being a total eyesore. It should've been laser engraved or something.

Lloyd to Harry "Hey, wanna hear the most annoying sound in the world?"

It's the Geek First Impression video by part-time audiophile. Also the most useless video.

I guess Scott was too excited to make the video of him totally geeking out about it, that he just couldn't wait until he heard it first! LoL!

Indeed I am liking those measurements. And now I will resume my wait for at least one of my Geek Outs to be shipped.

Looks good, but isn't this bad business practice? You're basically saying "look how inferior the competition is."

It's one thing to do it in a more ethical way by saying "product X beats out the competition" like they do in many scientific test between products, but it's another to basically flat out say "product X beats out products A, B, and C."

V-MODA chose to do the former when designing the M-100 and tweaking their manufacturing process. They did measurements of the M-100 and their quality control against the competition, but they never said what companies/products for ethical and good business practice reasons.

I don't get it. What's unethical about it.

You're basically saying how superior your device is and bragging about it. It's like a cheap shot really.

Name one other audio company who calls out the competition (and a specific model in particular) for being not as good. I can't think of any at the top of my head.

It's actually less of a cheap shot, and more of a very informative set of testing data. I LIKE that a company provides this testing data to the community. How many times do you see that from other companies? Very few.

 

It's not like the Verizon LTE map commercials, failing to mention that T-Mobile is twice as fast speed wise in most of those same LTE areas I've been to. Those are intentionally misleading cheap shots.
