Excerpt: Man oh man... are you in for a serious ride with these. Everything from the mid to the top is crisp and detailed. For me, coming from the Beats line and diving straight into V-Moda had me impressed with the refined top and mids. The details that arose in every track put a smirk on my face! The bass is my only con here. With the Beats you get a head rattling bass that creates a fun experience in my opinion... The bass on the M-100 is TIGHT and "punchy" as others state.
Excerpt: Been on it for a week now. Pretty impressive sound however not for those who prefers to have excellent isolation. Beyerdynamics DT 770 does a much better job with that. Fit is top class. Very comfort and keeps it position without gripping you like a vice. Just a tad pricey otherwise it would get a 5 star.
Pros: Comfortable, Compact, Good Bass, Lightweight
Excerpt: UPDATED after one year of moderate to heavy use . . . I wish I could award a 7.5. I like these headphones, but would not want them to be my only headphone. The M-100s are not neutral enough for classical, jazz or just about any form of "un-plugged" performance in my opinion. That said, they are...
Summary: Table of Contents You can CTRL+F or Command+F the following to get to a certain point in my review, or just scroll through and look for the big, bold headings.

Pros: Excellent mobile headphone, really great chest-hitting bass, fairly detailed, non-fatiguing treble, folding mechanism is sturdy, modular design
Cons: Shallow earpads, odd presentation of instruments/soundstage, too much bass, laid-back midrange, laid-back upper-treble, fragile zipper on case
Summary: These are great headphones, sound quality is second to none and they are not only built to last but are very comfortable on the head for long periods of time! The only real downfall of these headphones is if you like wearing them as a fashion accessory around your neck, they're a bit to bulky although the don't look big on you head!
Great for Electronic Dance Music, Used with EQ to sound great with any music.

Summary: Basically they sound great compared to my old Sennheiser HD212pro (clearer with more bass) and if used with audio control and EQ you can get the sound as you like it, but for EDM music they are great with no changes. If you prefer the Dr Dre beats fat bass you can get that with a deep bass setting, if you have it on your PC/Mobile audio control like I do. Its all personal preference anyway but I listen to loads of music so didn't want to have that fat bass all the time.
Summary: I should mention at the outset that I do not consider myself a sound aficionado. I cannot describe my audio experience in the technical language used by many of the previous reviewers. However, having agreed to review this product for Amazon Vine, it is my duty to report my findings, so here goes, in layman's terms... Well, my initial reaction was one of extreme disappointment. I plugged the headphones into my iPod, pressed the play button... and couldn't hear a thing!
