Head-Fi's Best Sellers
Hey everyone, im new to the forum, and really starting to get into headphones. I recently purchased the V-Moda M100's. Itried the m-80s first, but decided to I wanted over the ear. The M100's are really amazing. My question is this; although everything is very crisp and clear, why do I still bear a slight hiss in the background? Some songs are more noticeable than others.... hope you can belp me out.. thanks everyone
Describe your setup please as that will tell us more. Here's an example:
Computer -> USB cable -> external DAC or Sound Card -> <cable used to go to amp> -> Amp -> M100s
My initial guess is that it's the cable from your DAC to the amp but I can tell you for sure once you explain your setup :)

Are you sure the cable is in all the way on the iPhone 5s? If so then I'm not sure given your M100 is the brand new.
I really hope V-Moda didn't send me used headphones, that would be upsetting.
Would you suggest an external amp and/or DAC setup? I really want the best sound I can (for a moderately inexpensive setup)
Spotify bruh. Worth every penny.
