  1. Do you really need it to be a all-in-one solution with wireless capabilities? or you can purchase them from outside of Indonesia? If all in one, i suggest with the currency we are having right now, go for GSP303 (at JD.ID, its 1.1mill, reasonable price) or Cloud alpha (if there are any discounts available). If you can go separate, go for Tasktar pro 82 (get it from Lazada Indo) or Khastadio OS1 (OEM from Brainwavz with a local brand name, search Admiral Wiem in Tokped) and a TCM370 mic that you can attach or put on top of your monitor like i do or go Philips X2 + vmoda boom
  2. IIRC, someone on reddit mentioned they just passed the license to a HK company and hence the prices are jacked up to $100. Philips passed to Gibson and Gibson passed to the HK company. For source i will try to dig them up again but i remembered reading this around a week ago. I was also surprised seeing the SHP9500 at the $100 price..
  3. From my experience, front panel always sucked, no matter the manufacturer of the case. Suppose you feel its easier for you to access front panel, i suggest get an cable extender (plug it to the mobo) as audio will be better from the mobo compared to the front panel..
  4. If its just for pure gaming, i will go for the AD700X. BUT if you want something for overall use like gaming, music and movies, it will be the HD579 imo.. Note: they are open back so they leak sound..
  5. You can check Takstar pro82, its super comfy and its in the same class with m40x imo..
  6. If your budget is 150 and you like rap i think HD558 will get the job done. Not bass heavy but quite good, or if you want good bass you can go with DT770 80ohms if you can handle the treble.
  7. I haven't tried lots of IEM as im still working my way through them. For massdrop+, i haven't personally used them but i believe Crinacle's review on them is valid as he's one of those picky person regarding iems, so if its in the A category it will be great in all terms including imaging.
  8. I personally use the AVARA AV2 and im very happy with it, more or less i agree with this description: "Very neutral and transparent iem. Detailed with slightly more forward highs in my opinion which enhances the clarity. Although the highes are a little more forward, there are no sign of sibilant or harsh. Might appear dry to some but very much to my liking. I would compare these to SE425 with a cleaner bass. Better resolution and separation. But the stage is slightly smaller than the AV1" Source Massdrop+ IEMS are very interesting, i would like to try it sometime. Have a look at i
  9. You may refer to the options: Mobile (on the go or just generally mobile most of the time) - MSR7 or K553 Stationary (just in one place most of the time) - DT770 (V-shaped, one of my personal favorites) You may refer to this pinned thread too:
  10. Better mic will be meteor BUT with that being said, it will definitely pick up the blue switches more than the boompro. (adjust the mic gain or keep it at 0 so that it doesnt take up all unwanted audio such as the keyboard). Both mics will not pick up the headphone sound if youre playing at normal listening levels, but if youre playing up to ear shattering levels then yes it will pick up. I have used open backs in the past and none of the mic picks up the audio at normal listening volumes..
  11. For the connector i really dont know whether it will work or not, but should it do work, it will be a great combo. Sound wise yes, i personally feel its way better than those gaming headsets. Soundcard is not necessary, waste of money in my opinion, they don't really improve the sound, they just add the 7.1 surround sound gimmick to sell, in reality like i mentioned above, you can download or purchase the surround sound software from the internet. The volume control on boompro is for the volume of the headphones, it will not control the chat as per my experience. S
  12. HD559 + massdrop minimic (around $20-30 iirc and if you can wait) or modmic (around $35-80) or any lavalier mic like zalmans / takstar tcm370 (you can clip on the headphone cable or put it on top of the monitor). Just for reference i use the TCM370 and put the mic on top of my monitor. BUT if you really want that all in one solution cloud alpha is an okay option.
  13. The people who says that audio headphones are not compatible or not good compared to gaming headphones/headset, by my experience, just haven't tried anything else out of what they have used or mostly cheap gaming headsets. Open back headphones are superb for gaming, if you really want to play and be completely immersed in the game, its the only way to go imo. Something like AD700X + Modmic will suffice, very very popular combo too in the gaming world. You see streamers using gaming headsets cos they're obliged by the gaming companies who sponsored them. If you see Grimzzzz (HD
  14. Gaming brand: -HyperX Cloud or Cloud alpha -Sennheiser PC37X Headphone combo: -M40x + modmic -SHP9500 + vmoda boom pro -Takstar pro 82 + modmic The sentence which i bold is a gimmick sold by gaming companies to justify their reason to jack up the prices like crazy. You can download 7.1 for free online, one of the examples is Razer surround sound software. Even games provide the 7.1 surround sound feature for free.... EDIT: you can test trial for the DOLBY surround sound or purchase them for $10 (iirc) provided by windows.
  15. These are quite good for the price. https://www.amazon.com/Headphones-Isolating-Earphones-Professional-Monitoring/dp/B00G22NK4I/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1526354391&sr=1-1&keywords=takstar+hi1200
