Unfortunately they were unavailable for review at this time. But you seem to give the laid back mids, and over emphasised bass head m100's a spot on your wall of fame. And I find them very informative and entertaining. Apart from the build and design I was pretty disappointed all round. I do enjoy my Focals though: Actually I should have been more clear about what I meant. It's not really prominent kids as much as it is filling in some between 1kHz and 4kHz or so on the relatively otherwise flat cans. Listening to harry connick jr, flac'ed.
While I'm just about exactly opposite from Val when it comes to style a Hawaiian shirt is dressed up for me, you'll usually find me in t-shirts and sweats , we're like brothers from other mothers when it comes to our passion for headphones, great sound, and the worthiness of music. Yes they sound very clear, the detail resolution is very good, but the bass to treble imbalance defeats all the positives for both my wife and me. V-Moda is an excellent source for modestly priced, but very good quality, headphone cables of this type. This could be a good reference for others to see how these phones compare. Can you Tyll, or anyone here think of a Full-sized, Over-ear, sealed, portable headphone that sounds fanstastic staright off an iPad, with the genres mentioned above. Now we are in search for a better pair of headphones.
But in this case I might not be able to be quite so objective. The mic is mounted about five inches from the headphone end and is nicely positioned to pic up your voice; the one-button remote is about a foot farther down the cable putting it within easy reach. The sound stage and imaging was a bit lacking as well. But there was a strange misunderstanding, I think. It would not be good for the hobby to see a marked increase to its own barriers to entry. I don't like that at all.
He claims the cable will survive a million bends, the headphones can be dropped 70+ times on concrete from 6 feet, and the headband can be bent flat 10 times without fatigue. Less portable, but a hundred dollars cheaper. Any help would be great! The V shaped trend is off base, I think. You'll really have to look at the video at the end of this review to get a sense of how small it is, it looks deceptively large in the pictures. I find this a remarkably cool design not only as an excellent piece of engineering, but also a very handsome execution. Did we get a defective pair? I try to be even-keeled and objective when I write headphone reviews.
Please tell me that the V-Moda's need a long break-in before they show their true colors?!?!. I am not a basshead by any means, but these ones have barely audible low frequency response. I don't think we're close to that yet, but it's on us as consumers to help make sure we don't get there. The case is small and light enough to be clipped onto a keychain, but is also quite resistant to crushing force. Comparing these with the earlier M-80 it's evident that though these two cans are very similar in shape, subtle changes in geometry were made to narrow the overall arch of the headband to conform more closely to the shape of your head.
Follow me to the next page, and we'll find out. Since I don't know them I can't visualize how a headphone might sound. I've owned these for 4 years and they are falling apart. I love the sound of the Sennheiser amperiors headphones but have two gripes. I was wondering what you would recomend for very long listining sessions. Hi, I am very interested in buying the ue 6000's but this review has me thinking about the M-100's.
Feel free to throw your pinky and index finger high in the air as you violently bob your head, the M-100 will remain nicely positioned as the tunes modulate your brain. The band is flexible and lined in light pleather padding, but it's no less sturdy. Really love the build quality and style. The outside overwhelms the music. They aren't quite studio quality, but they definitely deliver well-crafted sound to suit a wide range of listeners—from beginners to hobbyists.
We make no guarantees regarding any of the advice offered on this web site or by its staff or users. Not so with the M-100. The bass is punchy and highs are nice and clean. The body of the jack has a groove in it that snaps to the cable when not in use. Too bad there was no local place in Toronto to try them out before buying: they wouldn't even have made it onto my short-list if I could see them in person first.
The compromise here is always between a sense of security and the sense of weightlessness. They trounced the V-Moda's in both lows and highs! The steel part is then enclosed in a rubbery molded part on the outside and head-pad foam on the inside. The gap is the space between the headband and the side of your head that causes all the weight to be carried at the top of your head. I had a chat with Val, and the reason I couldn't find this part is that V-Moda engineers designed and built it specifically for the M-100. Comfort The M-100 hugs your head with a firm, secure fit.
