  1. Hi Everyone, I like this build & considering it as a home gaming/personal set up. I don't need any peripherals and it's been a long time since I've done my own build. Wondering which parts would be good upgrade consdierations (aside from the GPU that's already been called out) around the same budget. I.e. Are there better options within the same general budget (I'd be willing to spend another $100 USD) for parts?
  2. Yup, just looking for a chair where I can sit comfortably for a long time and looking for suggestions for a chair under $500.. or if anyone can vouch that spending more than that on a "high end" chair is really worth it. When i tried out those chairs I couldnt feel a massive difference between them and some "standard" chairs at the office supply store. They didn't seem like they were worth paying 3 or 5 times as much. I don't care if it's a gaming chair or not. Any insights, recommendations, or confirmation the more expensive chairs are really worth it would be greatly appreciated!
  3. Hi All, Im looking for a desk chair for long hours sitting (7 hours+). Ideally it would have 3 or 4d adjustable arms, lumbar support, lockable tilt and be able to move over carpet. Im 5'11" (1.8m) and ~250lbs (113kg), no injuries or conditions, just need something that i can sit in for a long time, be comfortable with some good support. Dont care about reclining (i will never sleep at my desk). Everything else is a bit negotiable. Before everyone jumps on and says herman miller aeron... I've tried it and about a dozen other chairs, Aeron didnt make my top lists. I have tried chairs from: Herman Miller, Steelcase, Haworth, and Humanscale. My top 3 were: 1) herman miller Embody 2) Steelcase Leap 3) Haworth Very They were all pretty close but they didnt feel $600-$1200 better than some of the chairs i tried at the local office stores. I've also heard a lot of good things about the Secret Lab Titan, but havent been able to try one. I think i can get what I'm looking for under $500, even if it has to be used. I'm wondering if anyone has managed to find something they like with the criteria I mentioned or if those 3 chairs really are worth paying such a high price tag for? Thanks in advance for any help/suggestions!
  4. Hey Everyone, Thanks again for all the feedback! Here's an update: I added the bainwavz to the M50s and they make a HUGE difference! They are WAY more comfortable than stock and I'm wearing them comfortably most of the time. However, they still feel a bit heavier than I'd like overall and the top band still causes my head to get sore after a few hours. They are still great over all and I HIGHLY suggest getting the brainwvz pads if you buy these. Here's the link to the ones I bought, but it's not Linus' affiliate link. You can use theirs if you want to help them out: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00MFDT894/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I recently got a couple gifts and ended up buying the Bose QC 35s (series 1) which actually have a larger cup depth than the 25s and they fit great! I'm not running a DAC/AMP or anything like that so I'm only speaking from the perspective of using phone/work laptop. Overall, I think the m50s are great for the price but you MUST get the replacement pads to make them comfortable for long sessions and if you still need something more comfortable/lighter - the QC35s are fantastic and great for traveling! I'm very happy with both sets and are keeping them. Hope this helps anyone else looking for something similar!
  5. Thanks for the replies! I just heard about the brainwavz and will prob try those since they're not that expensive.. failing that, seems like I have a couple follow up options and will take a look at those too. I'll reply once I settle it all out.
  6. Hi Everyone, I need some help with an admittatedly subjective search. I'm looking for a hi audio quality set of closed back headphones that are comfortable for wearing 6+ hours, under $300 USD. Here's some info and questions for reference. I've been using a pair of bose QC 25s for a few years. These have SUPER comfortbale pads and are very lightweight. I LOVE the comfort of these cups.. but here's the issue I've been having. The inner diameter of the pads is too small for my ear and it squeezes the top lobe of my ear. Adding to that, I wear glasses and the pads push a little against the arms/my head over time. So my ear gets really sore after a few hours. Also, when these are not using the active noise canceling, the sound is kinda quiet and not that crisp. I don't need noise canceling, I'm more interested is something I can wear for long periods of time, with very little fatigue. I also recently bought a pair of ATH m50x's since they are so well reviewed and suggested, but oh wow these were NOT comfortbale to me! The pads are much less comfortable than the bose and these things feel like they weigh a ton comparatively. However, the cup size was great and fit comfortabally around my ear with clearance for my glasses too! Essentially, I'd love something as light/comfortable as the qc25 with the cup size of the m50x. Noise canceling isn't nessecary, nor is bluetooth, but they are nice to haves. I also tried the Sony WH-1000X-M2 and these also felt stiff comparative to the Bose pads. They were also way to shallow for my ear. Not comfortable. Can anyone suggest a pair of headphones like I'm describing for less than $300 USD ... Or do you know of ATH replacement pads that would be a similar feel to the qc25 pads?? thank you all in advance for any help!! This has been a much more difficult/time consuming search that I initially thought.
