Hello :3

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hello Everybody,

 

I am new to Hi-Fi audio and I am really interested in learning something about it. I am purchasing a pair of V-MODA Crossfade M-100 soon. And i am curious about DAC's and Amps would it be worth buying a AMP/DAC for the M-100 later on or wouldn't it make a big difference?

 

Best Wishes,

Grizzly

The M100's are meant to be used without one so it's Definitley not needed. Depending on the amp and your source there might be a small difference.

i recommend using your entire budget on a better pair of headphones, and worry about dacs/amps later. Better headphones will yield a bigger sound quality improvement over dac/amps for the same amount of money. 

 

Are you going to take your headphones outside? Because if it's going to be for home use exclusively, i recommend open headphones. Also, what kind of music do you like? Are you ok with heavy bass headphones (like the m-100 for example) or are you looking for a balanced sound signature?

Tell us your budget

Well your budget would appear to be around $400 since the M100's are $300+an amp would have been about $100

The source is onboard on my pc and my Samsung Galaxy S3 on the go.

Yeah the mobility was kinda some of the reason i picked the M-100 since i then could use it with my mobile too. Also i got a AT-2020 mic and im pretty sure it will pickup any open headphones.

My music taste is very wide spread but i mostly listen to Rock, Trance, Pop, EDM and House mostly from Japanese and Asian artist if that info matters.

The Bass from the M-100 is good for most of my taste and then i think i can just EQ the bass lower when needed correct me if im wrong.

I also really dig the design and the custom design you can get on the ear cups as a pretty good bonus.

Yes that's correct $400 before shipping :)

Most consider the m100's to be a bit overpriced and not have the best SQ. I recommend the Beyer DT770 80 for $200+Fiio E12 which will come to about $350 and will be ALOT better SQ wise and better for a wide range of music and EQ as you really wouldn't want the M100's for rock music or the best sound and be much more comfortable,larger soundstage and capable of equal to or more bass and better quality bass with EQ (which the Fiio E12 has a switch to EQ bass)
