    Sennheiser HD 58X vs HyperX Cloud II

    Already did, $4 at walmart for some tape and felt. Also do you know the best setting for this?

    Sennheiser HD 58X vs HyperX Cloud II

    While waiting for shipping I modified the HD 58X by removing the pads for a wider sound stage, that actually made it sounds better. After the Fiio K3 and the Dac X6 arrived, I decided to keep the K3 after using them for over a day constantly. it just look better, smaller, and that bass boost is really nice. Back to the headphones, the HD 58X is flatter (as we already know) and probably is what the sound should be like, but I personally like the bass boost + Cloud II over the bass boost + HD 58X. The HD 58X in the end doesn't really justify what I paid for in my opinion, but I like it enough to not sell it or return it for now. Maybe I'll come to understand it's value one day. But the K3 dac/amp combo is definitely worth it so Im happy with that.

    I'll just get both and test it myself then return one one of them, can't get anywhere reading up reviews.

    Sennheiser HD 58X vs HyperX Cloud II

    I saw that too, but there are more audio outputs and the usb to dac/amp is too unreliable since it doesn't work all the time. There are the headphones jack from the top of the switch, and the other outputs from my TV (optical and RCA). I don't plan on using it strictly with a computer so I'm looking for dac/amp combo with extra line in if possible.

    A Nintendo Switch. I use it everyday more than I do with my phone.

    Sennheiser HD 58X vs HyperX Cloud II

    Regardless I still want to buy a dac/amp combo for the HD58X to see what it can do. And I don't think this thread is going in the wrong direction. I own a Cloud II and a HD58X, one is good for game and one is good for music but either of them can do both of these tasks no problem. I just want to know the clear differences when comparing these and confirm if the HD58X justifies the price I paid (I'm a typical broke student). Right now the HD58X isn't doing its best due to the lack of an amp (and a dac too I guess) so yea, I'm looking to buy a budget one with multiple line in and line out for future uses such as when I buy some studio monitors. Follow that note, I been looking up different dac/amp combos and found the Fiio k3 to be a pretty good one, the only thing it lacks that im looking for is multiple line in. It only has USB for input, it's not much of a concern for me right now since the only device I want to plug that in also is my Switch but I maybe I'll need that in the future. So there's that...

    Might as well go all the way.

    Was thinking of buying the Fiio K3 also.

    Sennheiser HD 58X vs HyperX Cloud II

    Figured i would need a dac/amp at some point, any recommendation for a combo under $100 or around that price range? I'll spend some time looking into these for now, only got into audiophile recently.

    Sennheiser HD 58X vs HyperX Cloud II

    For the Cloud II, I'm using the included usb controller (which does boost the max volume a little), and for the HD 58X I use the motherboard back connector (MSI Z370M Mortar) and the cloud's controller in some cases. Judging from the 150 ohms of the HD 58X I don't think I would need an am for now. It doesn't get as loud as the Cloud II, maybe around 60% of the cloud at max volume when using with the usb controller.
  11. Recently bought a HD 58X to use along with my Cloud II. While I do notice a slight better sound in general listening, I don't feel anything different in games. The only difference I could clearly point out is the vocal (better, but not by much). Can anyone who had experiences with these 2 headphones give me a clearer distinction between them? Or some different methods I can use for testing the sound (other than playing music, games while switching them constantly which I have been doing). Considering returning the HD 58X if I can't really see a big difference from the Cloud II.
  12. Getting an i5 9600k (from i5 8400), i need more ram for photoshop and 3dsmax.
  13. Recently I started working on larger project in Phtoshop and 3dsmax (both running at the same time). Ram usage is always above 90% so yeah, pretty sure i need more ram. Photoshop went "not responding" today and i can't take it anymore. Ram was 99%-100% atm.
  14. The motherboard supports dual channel and i'll fill up all 4 slots with the same kind of ram. I'm not sure if that'll cause any issue however.
  15. I plan to upgrade from 16gb (2x8gb) ram to 32 gb (4x8gb) ram, all will be running at the same speed and populate all the slots on my motherboard (z370m). Will it slow down the pc? (boot and general uses). Thanks.
