Summary: The V-Moda M100 is a headphone that will please the average consumer but not please audiophiles.
(Note:This is my review from someone who has had only a few other headphones.)
The V-Moda come with vivid highs and lows with tame but detailed bass.The Mid's could use some work but are not muffled or drowned out and can have this fixed with a simple equalizer. These headphones are not very painful to listen to. Example:when you hear very sharp tss and sis.
Pros: Low impedance, size, can daisy chain,and the durability.
Cons: Sound stage, genere specific, and comfort(replaceable ear pads available.)
Summary: I was one of the lucky few who received the M-100 back in September as part of a Head-Fi.org promotion, so I've had ample time listening, wandering, traveling, subwaying and airplaning these heaphones. I've also had some time to compare the M-100 to my other pair of V-MODA headphones, the V-80, as well as to other headphones I've managed to play with at various retailers in New York City such as the Apple Store and B&H Photo.
Pros: Fantastic build, engaging sound, great accessories, super cool carrying case, very responsive to EQ, customizable, portable
Cons: White case is prone to stains, not great worn around the neck, bass is slightly overpowering with some genres, audio cable frays
Summary: These are not flat or analytical sounding cans, but they are a pretty good slice of the sonic cake for portables. I'm crowning these cans as Electronic Dance Music (EDM) king contenders for sure.
First off, let me say that I love Head-Fi, and I enjoy reading so many impressions of so many pieces of gear. I've learned so much about portable sound over the years thanks to this place and Head-fi has cost me a lot of money (in a good way) too!
Pros: Comfortable, non-fatiguing, portable w/mic and controls, very enjoyable sonic presentation (musical, w/adequate detail)
