    Deciding between headphones

    I've got the V-MODA M-100s myself. They're pretty good headphones but I want to vent a few things to future owners or potential buyers. The sound is good. It's not really out of this world, but it's good. I feel like they're pretty good at most genres, EDM being one of them. Of course everyone who's looked into getting this pair of headphones knows, its strong point is bass and it does just that. Durability is also a strong point, and the CLIQFOLD mechanism is pretty cool, and has a pretty satisfying click that I like to play with more than I'd admit to. I've also got the BoomPro mic paired with it as well, and others have told me my voice sounded really clear. But these headphones aren't without its flaws, and these complaints might veer out potential buyers, but these headphones hurt. Yeah, yeah, the stock pads are horrible, a little research can tell you this, but the XL pads do the same. The XL pads are much better, however, they are still like a on ear type of headphones. The inner circumference of the XL pads lays on top of your ears and the outer part of the pads go over your ears, sealing them against your head. After a few hours, the part where the pads lie on top of your ears starts to cause your ears to feel sore, and you just have to take off the headphones and take a rest from listening. Another thing, I've owned these pair of headphones for about 4 years at this point, and the headband has this "vegan leather" that flakes so easily. I've got so bothered to the point I just took some paper towels and isopropyl alcohol and just rubbed the layer off, and since I live in a pretty rainy city, I can no longer wear these headphones when I am out in the rain, in fear the rain will soak the cloth headband, and just kill it, maybe I am just paranoid, but it's only the truth. I've contacted V-MODA hoping I could maybe repair them, knowing it was out of warranty, I was ready to pay out of pocket to fix it, but to my surprise, V-MODA doesn't do repairs, only trade-ins with their Immortal Life program, where you send them your broken pair of headphones and get a 50% discount on a new pair or product replacement if I was still within the warranty period. Sound leakage is also a thing. The M-100s are kinda openback, and what I mean by that is on the outside of the earcups, there are vents that give it an openback design. I can push the headphones maybe up to 30% on Windows before people in the same room as me can hear what I am listening to. The headphones aren't bad, and I love how they look, how you can customize them and how they sound for my music preference, but for my experience with the V-MODA M-100s, they're not particularly all that great for the price they cost.

    Convert Audio Files

    Highly recommend FFMPEG. If you aren't too comfortable with command line, you can also use LAME or dBpoweramp.

    What music service do you use?

    I totally get you, I just have way too much time on my hands, so a FLAC library is what I organize when I'm bored. Maybe it's because of my obscure taste, but everything released recently has sounded so similar to each other that I haven't added a much to my library

    Replacement Side panel

    Is it acrylic? If so, it might be this: https://www.corsair.com/ca/en/Categories/Products/Accessories-|-Parts/PC-Components/Cases/Carbide-SPEC-05-Acrylic-Side-Panel/p/CC-8900238 If that's not it either, look around the accessories section of the Corsair website, they seem to have spare parts for everything!

    It's Nicky V!

    It's not even a CBC Comedy video lmao. Being a Vancouverite myself, I instantly recognized the video style of some fellow Vancouverites that run a YouTube channel I used to watch frequently. The actual source of the video is from a channel named iFHT (iFuckingHateThat) and they've done tons of these "How To Be" videos, and Berkel has been in some of them. I love how Vancouver YouTubers all know each other, really makes it feel like a small city.

    What song are you listening to right now.

    Shit, I was just listening to Avicii - Liar Liar (Avicii by Avicii). Highly recommend, can't wait for the album in June!

    What music service do you use?

    I just have like a huge folder of FLAC files, not to listen to, but to rip down to lower bitrates and store on my phone, or if I really want to, I used Dopamine as a local music player on my computer. Not a huge audiophile, but I like owning my music, and knowing that I will always be able to rip it down to another format or a lower bitrate just keeps my mind at peace. But if you've got your eyes set on streaming services, you can go for Spotify Premium, which has pretty good quality, but if you're hugely into listening for quality, I highly suggest either Deezer or Tidal, since they have really good sounding files. I'd rank Tidal the best and Deezer just falling short, but remember, they are asking for quite the monthly fee. If you're fine with Spotify quality and you want to stick with a familiar UI, Spotify Premium is definitely something to think about.

    Blue or red switches?

    I personally use Cherry MX Reds because they're pretty light and it doesn't take much effort to press them. I primarily use my Corsair Strafe, but I also have a 2010 Razer Blackwidow stored away beside my computer, so I have access to a Cherry MX Blue keyboard as well. I mainly use my computer late at night so I try not to disturb my family, and with the Corsair Strafe, because of how light the keys are, they still bottom out. With the Blackwidow, the clicking sound of the Cherry MX Blues really don't help me out. So if you prefer a bit of a quieter keyboard, Cherry MX Reds, and if you like the click and the feel of Cherry MX Blues and your family doesn't mind too much, I'd say go for those. If you can go to a computer hardware store, there are usually mechanical switch testers that allow you to test them out, only then will you find your preference. If you like the feel of Cherry MX Blues but you don't like the sound, may I recommend you Cherry MX Browns?

    Oneplus 5 or Pixel 2?

    Go for the OnePlus 5. It has a bit of a bigger battery which works well with the Snapdragon 835 to give a pretty good battery life experience. Dash Charge is very fast compared to Google's solution, my OnePlus 6 can get from 20% to 80% in a matter of 30 minutes. You could also install Google Camera, it's no Pixel 2 photography, but it will definitely get you very close, but you must root it to install some libraries due to some bad camera implementation by OnePlus. It's also got the headphone jack, whether you use Bluetooth or not, it's definitely something to have handy. Another thing to think about is the fingerprint sensor location.

    iPhone X Purple Smear

    It's a characteristic of an AMOLED screen. Since every pixel is lit up individually, from black to picture, the pixels needs to turn on, resulting in that purple smear. This is not a display panel problem at all. This goes for Androids as well, so don't get too worked up over it.

    Razor mamba not working

    Wait, Razer RMA exists?

    Gif pronunciation?

    Like Gift. The creator is wrong, he created the extension, not the English language. If it is pronounced with a hard J, how do we pronounce JIF?

    First PC Build INTEL or AMD

    It's all up to you. If you do a lot of multitasking or working, go for Ryzen. However, if you are willing to spend more for better single core gaming, go for Intel.
