  1. Actually I tried Hamachi first. But they said Hamachi will never work here and said to get a proper VPN. Tunngle is dead I'm pretty sure.
  2. It was recommended I get a VPN by the help desk. I did originally think about getting a VPS, but since I was going to get a VPN I thought about trying it out for a bit.
  3. Unfortunately my roommate is actually no longer my roommate. I was living with him over the summer temporarily. My university also does not allow routers unless we take them into the university help desk to get the wifi disabled (effectively making them glorified ethernet switches, but we aren't allowed to use regular switches either since it causes security flags in the building's switch to go off). I saw AirVPN have something with an exit-ip, do you know what that is exactly?
  4. Hi, I'm looking for help setting up a MC server using Torguard. I live on a university campus and the network does not allow for my server to be visible (expected). I bought Torguard in hopes of being able to host my server that I was using over the summer (and not pay as much for AirVPN, but it already looks like I'll have to cancel Torguard and go for AirVPN), but any attempts I've made so far have been futile. I didn't buy a dedicated IP (didn't think I would need it). I don't have much knowledge on VPNs (in fact, let's just consider it nothing since I only know to change the VPN server
  5. Yes, but for a reputable brand to price a product like this at $100 is disappointing. I forgot to mention it in my review but even my Corsair Vengeance 1500 V2 from 4 years ago sounds much better than these other than in detail. I stopped using those but decided to compare them to the K182s.
  6. So a little while back, I decided that I wanted to buy a secondary pair of headphones to my HE560s. Being a college student who regularly uses the loud and crowded buses to get around the campus, I needed a decent closed pair of headphones to take around with me. After a few weeks of searching, I found the AKG K182 on Ebay that had a starting bid of $40. After losing multiple bids on the Audeze EL-8C, I decided to just go for this pair since no one seemed to really be that interested. I later found out that this pair is worth $100 so I think I got a bargain So for $100 what do you get (or f
  7. Before Reading: I'm not really a fan of using super colorful words because they really aren't helpful for people just starting out so I will try not to use them. Everything here is MY IMPRESSION. This means that some things will not be the same for you. If there's one thing that I've learned from this hobby, it's that everyone is different so my impression will be different from yours. Also my bank account hates me for getting into this. I'm pretty much just writing down whatever I think without paying too much attention to what others may think, kinda like Zeos I guess, but with less "i
  8. I forgot Audio GD was a thing. I'll go check that out. Also I have an ODAC.
  9. I do have a DAC. The tube amp was really just recommendations with the HE560 so I'm just trying to do some research before buying stuff. Also I thought hybrids were a little less veiled than a pure tube amp.
  10. Is there anything that doesn't add a "veil"? I like the highs the way they are, just don't want to add anymore.
  11. Just as the title says. I'm willing to spend (well I have to save up first) to spend around $500 (that includes the price of tubes if tube/hybrid amp is recommended). The Lyr 2 is recommended for these, and I was planning to save up for them with a pair of Gold Lion tubes, but I want to know if there are any other alternatives around this price point (or less). Originally I was just going to get a Magni 2 but apparently it is brighter than other amps, and the HE560's are bright enough for me.

  13. Thanks. Any opinion on the m560 then? I don't really see any people complaining about those but I can't find a comparison to the HE4-- series. They're also cheaper than the HE-- series.
  14. I thought the ringing was a QC issue, since not everyone is reporting that they have ringing (my plan was to just return it or sell it for slightly less if I didn't like it or just send it back for another unit to see if the ringing would be fixed. If I really have to mod it then so be it, I guess...). Regardless, I'd like to spend $110 or less for an amp and the only reason I would spend more is because the more expensive amp is significantly better and anything after that has diminishing returns (ie: the asgard 2 or aune x7 if they are that much better than something like a magni 2).
  15. I recently bought and SMSL M3 for my HD598's, which seems perfectly fine for now. I have plans on buying the Monolith M1060s though if they go on any sort of sale and I will definitely need a better amp for those. Theoretically, could I have the SMSL M3 as a dac (I really don't think I'll need a better dac) and connect the line out to something like the magni 2? I plan on getting that since honestly, if I like the monoliths as much the hype is saying (which I'm hoping I like them since I'd be ok with those being my endgame), then I will probably never buy a more expensive or difficult to drive
