V Moda100

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 

Greetings to all you fellow audiophiles

 

 

Today I simply would like to ask and see suggestions and experiences with these two headphones: V moda m100 and the Audio Technica m50's.I recently have gotten very interested in hearing music and its been about tree to four months ive been reading about these two headphones.Side notes would be that I love base or bass? What ever you call it, but I also don't like that the music get distortioned by it.I also would be using these headphones on an iPod and would use them to as a stylish piece.If you have any great suggestions for in ear headphones that could match these in a ceartain way don't be afraid to mention them.I also mostly listen to electronica ( dubstep,drumstep,elctro etc.) rock and bachata which is latin music. For now thank you and have a nice day :]

I own both. I'll try help you as best as I can. The M100 are solid feeling and sexy! They sound eneven and the mids are very push back to the point they sound bad. They lack sparkle and that musical feeling. That said the bass is amazing! It has a nice full bass that thumps nicely. The treble is ok it sounds nice the comfort is bad!. Overall a very hard headphone to listen too considering the price!

The M50 are built well, more comfy but uglier. They sound more balanced but a slightly boosted bass and ever so slightly pushed back mids. The treble is harsh but it's a musical headphone more so than the M100.

Compared I like the M100 for it's bass but the mids are really bad and it just sounds like it's trying to be more things than it is. It just doesn't sound good. The M50 are cleaner, more balanced and more versatile. For nearly a quarter of the price go for the M50.

If you want something better go for the DT770 it's cheap, has big bass, detailed, musical and so fun with a big soundstage. They are amazing!

The m100 fit the requirements i vote for m100. The m50 don't have that bass and are more like professional look than a stylish look, the M50 is bigger too. I like more the M80 than M100 but both are good. I dont think that the DT770 have the stylish look that the OP wants.

DT770 are very stylish, also the skull candy aviator are good looking and portable. I favor those over both the M50 are M100 and they are very cheap.

Owner of the M-100 here.

 

They are no neutral by any stretch, but they're wonderful at being a fun headphone. There's quite a bass kick and they only get better as you amp. Off an iPod/Phone they're going to be reserved sounding like you know they can produce more dynamics, but just doesn't quite get there. I've owned the M50 as well. As far as comfort goes I really have to give it to the m-100, less clamp and the M50's seem to make my ears sweat within 45min-1hr

Well price range would be no more than 100 or 150 $ and sound signature would be a headphone with nice plenty of bass but wihtout distortioning or taking the whole show and overall just decent to awsome sound. And thank you in advanze smily_headphones1.gif

The M100 bass over powers the mids to the point they sound bad so I think you are looking into the wrong headphones.

The way you describe the M-100 sound signature almost sounds like the description of the LP2 sound. Maybe you got a defective unit. Most reviews say the M-100 has a recessed mid-range, but almost none say the mids sound bad. Now I'm very curious about your M-100.
