    IFI iDSD Nano Black Label Review: Buy This Instead of a Schiit Stack

    Can’t comment on opening it up.

    Need a pair of headphones. Budget 250$ but willing to go up to 375$

    Yes, but not without the qurhor’s approval I don’t believe.

    Well you see the problem is the guy who wrote it is no longer active. I would have no issue with re-writing it, but I can't have my thread take the place of his I don't think.

    IFI iDSD Nano Black Label Review: Buy This Instead of a Schiit Stack

    I didn't test that because I don't believe in DSD. Very expensive, not much available in it, and at that point you are being insane, you can't hear a bit rate that high.

    Well there are good planars, they just are very different from dynamics and have their own issues. Some would say you pay quite the premium. The HE-300 is not a planar. The HE-4XX is, it's a good headphone, but not worth it's price when the HD58X exists.

    But is not relevant anymore. Most of the headphones are no longer in those price ranges, and some aren't made anymore.

    Well those aren't a Massdrop headphone. The Dekoni Blue is just the cheapest on Massdrop, but not a Massdrop headphone. Massdrop has the T-X0 that I reviewed that is truly awful.

    Mechanical keyboard for mac

    The Azio Retro classic if you like that style has a second set of keycaps for Mac and a Mac setting on the keyboard. Pricey, but pretty neat look if you are into that. https://www.amazon.com/Azio-Retro-Classic-Bluetooth-Artisan/dp/B078915Q1P/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1539538097&sr=8-3&keywords=azio+retro+keyboard

    They work for home use. They are right on the edge of being an on ear depending on the size of your ear. But they are quite comfortable.
  10. I've been out of the audio section for a while. I've honestly been busy and to be 100% honest it just get exhausting after a while of answering the same questions hundreds of times. I'll be back sooner or later. 

     

    As for headphones, I am selling off lots of headphones. I am trying to downside my collection and get some higher end stuff. I ordered some Focal Elex, those will be here Wednesday. I'll give a list of stuff for sale and if anyone is interested in any of it let me know and we can talk prices, condition, prices, etc...

      Well, if insane shipping costs to India wasn't a bummer I'd definitely pick one outta these. :/

    Need help with Headphone Purchases

    Do you have a budget?

    There are a lot less good closed headphones than open one, but there are still a few good options. I will give a list of a few of my picks at many different price ranges. I would recommend getting a cheap DAC/Amp something like the Schiit Fulla 2 or FX Audio DACX6 at least to start. AKG K553/K550 Status Audio CB-1 Sony MDR-1A B&O H6 Dekoni Blue (Amp required) Fostex T60RP (Amp required) Audeze Sine Closed Back (Amp required + 3D printed pad adapters and HM5 pads)

    WTF Nvidia

    Are you sure whatever overclocks you had running are actually applied?
  15. Terrible decision, but you are a snowflake and blocked me so you’ll never see this. $15 minimum wage does nothing but fuck over poor people.
