It comes with a headphone cable that features an in-line mic, and another cable with an audio pass-through port so 2 headphones can listen from the same audio source.
Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Warm, full, and smooth sound
The M-100's sound signature can work really well with a wide range of music. Bass reproduction has good power and punch. The mids are also full and slightly forward over the other frequencies. This results in extra emphasis on the vocals and on mid-range sounds like guitars and keyboards. The highs are not peaky, which reduces their harshness, sounding smooth instead.
Pro Comes with two cables out of the box
These headphones come with a SpeakEasy Mic cable and a Share Play cable. This gives you an option as to which cable you want to use at a given time. This also means that you will have a spare cable should you damage the other.
Pro Good mix of metal and plastic make these feel solid
These have a solid, high quality feel to them, and you can tell that they will last you a long time. The ear cups are made of high quality plastic, while the headphones' yokes and headband are made of metal. The headband has a generous give yet does not feel flimsy at all. You can even twist it quite a bit yet it still won't feel like it will break.
Pro Collapsible design allows for easy portability
The yokes can be collapsed and folded up into the headband. This reduces the overall size of the headphones, making them much easier to carry around.
Pro Cable is easily removable
You can detach the cable by simply pulling out the 3.5mm connector from the port on the headphones. The connector attaches with a satisfying click so it is less likely to get disconnected when in use.
Pro You can take calls with these on
The SpeakEasy cable has an in-line microphone with great noise cancelling. The cable also comes with an in-line 1 button remote which allows users to answer or end calls, as well as pause and play music tracks.
Pro SharePlay Cable allows music sharing with other headphones
The SharePlay Cable features a 3.5mm pass-through port where a person can connect their own headphones. This means that you and another person can enjoy music from the same source.
Pro Carrying case allows for easy and secure transport
Included is a clam-shell style case made of durable plastic so it should protect your headphones from scratches and minor impacts. Do note that you will have to detach the cable to make it fit inside the case.
Con Will leak some sound due to semi-open design
The ear cups are not completely closed as there are small ports on the side. People near you may be able to hear you with enough volume. This also means that ambient noise can mix in with the music.
Con Mids can be too forward for some
The mids may come off as a little bit artificial due to the extra emphasis on these frequencies. Vocals and guitars may be too in-your-face for others.
