  1. My old headphones recently started to tear my ears up, and despite my usual efforts, nothing seemed to solve the problem. They were on-ear headphones (marshall monitors), but honestly, quite comfortable at first. But in the last month or so, they started tearing away at my ears, no amount of adjustments were doing anything and some new pads didn't help either so I just decided to get some AKG K92's to tide me over to a planned upgrade (probably some Beyer DT1770s) Pretty decent headphones for the price in all honesty, though sound wise, it almost feels as if something is missing sometimes, and I just can't put my finger on what it is.
  2. The collab I knew I wanted did not disappoint.
  3. Kind of a given tbh. Cobalt isn't really the sort of material you can just scoot over and go elsewhere for. Pretty sure that, in the last few years, with the recent increase in demand for cobalt (for obvious reasons), demand has caught up, if not surpassed supply. When you're at the point, things like this are going to happen. That doesn't make it right mind you, but it just goes to show you that while batteries might be our temporary saviour (Mark my words, the electric car will be a repeat of the diesel engine. We were told how great and so much better diesels were for the environment, now we know what's really going on with them. Electric cars will be the same, might not be for a few decades, but soon enough we'll be blasted with info about how they're not nearly as good for the environment as we thought they were and whatever alternative is around at the time will be hailed as the next coming of Christ), we're simply relying on them far too much to have the luxury of avoiding ethical issues. It also goes to show that we need some of that new battery tech... You know... The sort that cropped up in some lab somewhere that you literally never hear about again? It's also pretty funny to see Apple mixed up in this considering there was rumours going around that they were planning on buying cobalt directly from the mines themselves for transparency when it came to ethical concerns.
  4. Because people would rather have a dedicated jack than a dongle that stops you from charging your phone while being used or having to use wireless headphones, which are yet another thing to charge? Plenty of headphones are still being manufactured with a 3.5mm jack, it might be outdated, but it's not exactly an obsolete connector and yet phone manufacturers have decided to remove them for no real reason. It ain't hard to understand why people still complain about it. Tbf, just because you don't like one it doesn't mean you don't like the other. In this case it does, but personally I'm fine with notches. Hole punches though? Get that damn bs outta here.
  5. Got sick of LED lights kicking the bucket after about 6 months so I decided to jump back to CFLs. Hopefully they're as reliable as the last lot of CFLs I used which, afaik, are no longer produced
  6. Pretty sure it's just the sensor, the Hero uses Logi's Hero sensor. I mean... I'm not even sure how you'd review a mouse. It's a mouse. Idk... It's comfortable to use and the buttons have a nice feel? The only real gripe I have is that I feel like there's too much resistance to the scroll wheel when it's not spinning freely. Obviously, when it's spinning freely it's far too loose for regular use, but it's not really intended for regular use anyway.
  7. Had the urge for an upgrade... The start of what's to come I feel.
  8. Gastric acid sits at around PH 1.5-3.5 while many sodas sit at around PH 3, with particularly acidic ones like Coke and Pepsi sitting at around PH 2.5. Many root beers sit at about PH 4+ So, rather hilariously, when you drink a soda, unless you're drinking one that's particularly acidic, there's a good chance you're actually making your stomach less acidic. It should also be pointed out that the acid in your stomach is a mix of sodium and potassium salts, as well as the all important hydrochloric acid, which is a strong acid in it's own right that's also capable of eating through metal. Can deffo vouch for this. Nicotine could wake me from my grave.
  9. The current state regarding vapes is that, when buying legitimate products, it's far safer than smoking. In regards to cancer, as of this point, there's little evidence showing that vaping using legitimate, off the shelf products is harmful. You'll find the vast majority of harm caused by vaping is down to unregulated mods (usually lack safety features that prevent shorting and over discharging of batteries which leads to catastrophic failure), bootleg liquids (bootleg THC pods being the most recent occurrence) and poor battery care (I.E people keeping bare batteries in their pockets with other metal objects like keys, causing the batteries to short again, causing a catastrophic failure) There have been cases of some off the shelf liquids causing a condition known as popcorn lung, this was down to the use of diacetyl in some liquids. These days, manufacturers do not use diacetyl. As far as cancer risk goes though, it simply hasn't been long enough to tell. Vaping has been around for a while but not truly long enough to fully understand what, if any long term effects it has on your health. Current research claims that vaping is about 95% safer and nicotine itself is known to be a relatively harmless substance, no more harmful than caffeine.
  10. Had an experience with an RMAed phone getting lost a few months back, the retailer looked into the issue and sent out a replacement for me without fuss. Generally the manufacturer or seller tends to foot the bill for shipping, at least in my experience. If they provide shipping, insurance is also down to them. Likewise, should something go missing, it is their issue as the contract for delivery of the goods is between them and the courier service. If you're footing the bill for shipping, the same applies. If the item is lost, it is your problem. For expensive goods, I'd 100% get the full works. Insurance, tracking and signed delivery. For very expensive items, a tracker might not be a bad idea.
  11. Personally I just like the convenience of being able to just put my phone down and charge it, if I get a call or whatever I can just pick it right back up. Speed also isn't really a huge concern these days with some phones. My phone can charge wirelessly using 20w, it's not the crazy high figures we're seeing in some phones but many manufacturers are still using 18w quick charging. I can literally charge my phone faster wirelessly than some phones can charge with wires and Xiaomi are reportedly already working on 30w wireless charging.
  12. A new boot drive (picked it up not too long ago) and a new phone.
