    AIAIAI TMA-1

    The curves definitely are all over the place; but one thing I've noticed is the drivers perform exactly the same. Arguably, final sound is shaped from the cushion materials, which is where I think the contradictory graphs originate, and cup design.   That said, I find the Capitals sound very...

    Quote: I found that to be the other way around. Not only were they incredibly uncomfortable after 20 minutes of wear, but with the way they fit my ears, some outside noise actually seemed to sound amplified if you are in a place like a coffee shop. The M-100's are marginally worse than...

    Quote: That's hilarious. The only thing I disliked about the LP's was the bloaty, prominent bass. I actually preferred the mids of the LP's over the M-100's. I'll have to call my friend back to see if he still has those headphones with him

    Quote: I find most headphone impressions to be a subjective experience; it is insanely difficult to separate your feelings from facts.. Even if we do, there are discrepancies to the shape and size of our ears, and being subjected to mental acclimation(brain burn-in) with a particular...

    Quote:  You guys are making sound like it's impossible to reassemble; it really isn't. @9Nein9, two things come to mind if the cups feel loose: 1) the forks are bent/stretched, and need to be realigned 2) the cup hinges are loose   If you popped the cups off by pulling on a...

    Quote: I find subtleties in headphones can take longer to pinpoint than just a quick A/B, if they have a similar tone. Its usually not until you've become well acquainted with one pair, where the other's flaws/strengths immediately stand out.That said, do you actually have both to compare...

    Quote: That one has an old SN. The SN on mine is 497, and it's the older model Valhalla. Anyone interested and new to tube amps, be sure to ask the guy how long he thinks the tubes have run for. A replacement set will cost you $40; not much of a savings over new, to be honest..   PS: If...

    Quote: Assuming the T5p pads are similar to the T1 pads, the M-100's are about 30% smaller. Hopefully the XL pads fix this though.

    ↑ there's a lot of truth behind your closing sentence. Pretty much all of my friends who were in to rap, pop, and EDM loved the M-100's. One of them was looking for a great budget headphone under $80. After hearing the M-100's, he immediately began saving for them.   Dont get me wrong, I've...

    Quote: Honestly, I feel the smartest thing for your wallet would be to return it, or at least take advantage of the 60 day testdrive(seeing how second-hand M-100's already sell for ~$270 via warehouse deals). Amazon has pretty darn good CS when it comes to perdicaments like this; you may...

    Quote: The weight of heavier headphones causes the grooves of the stand to dig into the headband. It doesnt affect functionality, but it'll affect the asthetics and resale value of some headphones. When I first got the M-100's, I left them on the stand overnight; only to find that it had...

    Quote: umm, wups.. looks like the one I bought last year doubled in price. I like it because the hook part is flat enough where the headphones are less likeley to fall off, and its taller than the Rocketfish stand, so I can leave my headphones hanging at their extended position.. Keep an...

    Quote: LMAO, the guy must have been into headphones at some point, or just going off of old words. Next time, flag him down and ask him to take a listen. If he still thinks they sound god-awful, then he's either stubborn, or just listening to his friends

    Quote: I no longer own both, so I'm going off memory here; but the key differences I observed: The BP's had bass reach and warmth, where the M-100's has bass reach(super tight, although borderline artificial sounding), teeth rattling impact and detailed treble. Both have an average...

    Quote: It was me who was tinkering with the v-ports on my buddy's LP. They definitely influence the sound when applying different acoustic material, but I didnt notice any particular change jumping out while plugging up the ports by the drivers. In one instance I recall hearing driver flex...

    Atleast on the LP's, I didnt find the front port greatly affecting the sound. My guess is, they were put in place so you dont get that negative pressure feeling or wreck the drivers when the pads compress. But the PT mod still did change things up a bit, even though I specifically avoided the...

    Quote: you're probably right; I just remember whenever my hair is extra poofy, the M-80's struggle to stay clamped to my ears, where the LP and M-100's needed only a few clicks to seat comfortably. Weight and clamping force perhaps influences my particular fit..
