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
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. If you want the gist of my review, sections V and VI are the most important parts. Preamble (Introduction to the M-100) I. VTF-100 and the Package Contents II. Unboxing the M-100 III. My Initial Impressions of the M-100 Before Burn-In IV. My Impressions of the M-100 After 144+ Hours of Pink Noise Burn-In V.
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: I am seriously in love with these headphones. Like, they are genuinely the best headphones I have bought. Although the price was off-putting, it's seriously worth it if you need super comfortable, customisable and very sturdy headphones - they also look extremely cool! My only fallback is that they seem to have a lot of hype and can disappoint a lot of people who are expecting amazing quality, but not realising they have to use amplifiers and all these extra addons to...
Summary: Very bassy. I bought these almost specifically for my EDM moods, and for that purpose they blow away every other set I own. Marvelous construction too (smaller than you probably think). All the accessories right down to the packaging convey quality. Fully worth ~$300, and easily recommended for bass heavy listening. EDIT: Despite already mentioning they're my EDM set, I feel I have to mention these really don't perform well with other genres.
Excellent bass heavy headphones, need to be amplified to get the max potential

Summary: After buying and returning some sennheiser RS170 wireless headphones, i was looking for something with slightly more sub bass for watching movies and listening to music, although the sound quality on the RS170's is amazing, the bass just didn't do it fo me. After a hunt about for bass heavy headphones i stumbled upon the m100's, if your reading this you will probably know what these headphones are about and they do live up to all the excellent reviews!
Summary: Good for home, very good bass reproduction and extremely loud. However, these aren't particularly brilliant for use on a mobile phone - these are really designed for use on a hifi from my experience with these (or at least with an amplifier in the mix). As I had spent so much on these cans and not able to hear a word of the music on my commute on the London Underground, if this is not what you are doing you will be happy with these.
