    Arctis VS Sennheiser

    Not the only one but its pretty good. For 300$ I think you could get Sony WH1000MK3 and have the best BT headphones on the market but they aren't designed for gaming. Look at wireless headphone round ups on Hardware Canucks YT Channel.

    What is your budget??? Do you need a microphone??? What games and type of music do you listen to?? I think your budget is around 160$. Do you need Bluetooth to use with smartphones or is wireless enough???

    What do you do for a living???

    Bothe very interesting jobs, I would do something like that but in India you don't get paid well doing stuff like that and parents, well lets just say they ain't as forward thinking as typical western parents.

    PC for college

    If you don't game then 1700$ is crazy overkill for a PC of any sort. You could get by with a 400$ small form factor build and it will more than satisfy your needs however it won't be very portable if you need to use in your classroom. Will you need to use the device in a classroom??? What course are you taking?? Your best option is a thin and light laptop. MacBook Pros are more expensive than Windows counterparts but they do have great build quality on the outside, good audio and screens and depending on the processor, decent cooling and battery. However, the internals are custom Apple stuff(poorly designed) which are very quirky and even moisture from the air could brick your MacBook. This won't be a concern right away but repair costs from Apple authorized service centers can be expensive if you have bad luck and might not even solve the issue. Most people don't have these problems and while all companies have such problems none of them are so expensive to fix and the number of problems you will face will be much lesser. You should take a look at this channel to understand what I mean: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCl2mFZoRqjw_ELax4Yisf6w So you could get most problems fixed by a similar reputed repair group if you end up with bad luck. However, unless you need MacOS I would recommend getting a Windows Machine and adding Linux or any other OS you want and make it a dual boot system. If you need a touchscreen, a 2 in 1 tablet like the Surface Pro lineup offers very good build quality and battery life with decent performance for much less money. If you don't require a touchscreen, go with a good ultrabook. LG Gram- Battery Life is best in class and good build quality, ultra light under 1 kg(depends on model) Dell XPS- More premium and better build quality, better performance, heavier and less battery life. There are other options like the Asus Zenbook but first decide between touch or no touch, and MacOS or Windows.

    What do you do for a living???

    That was useful. I think then Aerospace is definitely for me, a little but of everything. But for end user products is there ultimately a person who guides the whole team and links all the other groups together???

    On-the-go headphones for $200-250?

    No you aren't overthinking I had 20$ headphones too but once I went out bought even a 120$ pair the sound is so much better. You could consider IEMs but getting something with balanced sound is tough. I think you should just get a good pair of foldable closed over ears get a decent EQ software for your laptop. Then compare the sound between your speakers and headphones and adjust the EQ to match natural sound as well as possible. This will take an evening but it is gonna be very tough to find perfectly neutral pair of closed headphones that are portable. You will have to adjust the EQ carefully and try it with different files but once you tune it you don't have to mess with it again. Or as @Dackzy mentioned just get a closed pair of headphones with good soundstage and decently balanced sound and just get used to it. And besides do you edit footage you take yourself or what?? Unless the people evaluating your projects have a Hi-Fi sound setup they probably won't be able to tell the difference and even if you edit the sound perfectly it could sound awful on their audio devices.

    What do you do for a living???

    I like both practical and theoretical(mostly physics like quantum mechanics) equally, but I hope I don't get forced to learn to much unnecessary theory in college. No I must have mentioned something wrong. I generally like any subject that answers questions and that includes chemistry and biology but I don't have any passion for them apart from mixing up chemicals in the lab. I like physics more than any other subject. I want to do Aerospace because I like propulsion and along with aerodynamics and avionics this seems to be the best option for me. But I am also considering taking up Electrical and computers. Also what do the people who design consumer products like laptops, smartphones, etc. usually need to know??

    What do you do for a living???

    I know you need calculus and maths and I am learning that and all. But what else do you learn in Physics in college. I like working with machines and robots but what about the theory part???

    Worthwhile Professional Headphone Models and Brands?

    That is typical of cheaper poorly built headphones, which headphones did you use previously??? The M40X and DT770 Pro Headbands are pretty comfortable in their price points but if you get the M40X get any decent pair of angled earpads. And I don't think you will get non plastic builds at this price point and the plastics on these are very good like something you might find in a reliable car. Read this post Check the 100-200$ price range. Also you could consider open headphones.
  12. It should run at rated 3000 without any voltage changes(usually at 1.2V) and at the rated timings on the box. Don't change the timings but see if it becomes stable at 3000MHz at 1.25 then 1.3 then 1.35V. Don't put in more voltage than that. At this point get another 3000 or higher rated kit a different model from somewhere temporarily and see if it works in your motherboard with XMP and stock voltage. If it does then there is a problem with your RAM sticks if not a problem with your motherboard. If it is a problem with the RAM but it works with more voltage it should not be a problem but just get them replaced anyway. If it is a motherboard problem get it replaced immediately.
  13. The HS50 is pretty well known for its great audio even for a gaming headset at 50$ and I believe the HS70 also has good reviews. https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=corsair+hs70 The first three results are from reputed channels I would trust.

    Worthwhile Professional Headphone Models and Brands?

    That thread is a little outdated but you could use that as a good base. The M40X are great I own them but just get aftermarket angled earpads they will improve comfort a lot. If you can pay a bit more get the Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro 32 Ohms. That is pretty much the best value under 200$ and even higher than that you won't find a much better pair. @ScreamSlasher5X Most of the experts are like that. You can't expect them to answer every single day that the M40X is better than the M50X but that's usually the case on most dedicated forums as well. This forum is a bit more relaxed and doesn't have tons of limitations on users as long as you follow basic rules.

    What do you do for a living???

    Here is hopefully North America or Europe. I don't like the environment in India or most Southeast Asian countries for that matter. I have great organizational skills and I am improving my people skills. If I know what each field is like I could decide on a course. As long as its science and doesn't involve some boring topic I don't really care. After that I can find a job after starting small like you said. If you don't mind me asking what do you do??
