  1. Don't think they have an IP rating, but Shure Aonic 215 are a relatively recent thing.
  2. ... but not the part everyone wants aptx for? "If Microsoft wanted to hide this piece of information, they could not be doing a better job. A single page on microsoft.com mentions aptX. Apparently, Windows 10 has supported the aptX codec since the first release (1507). According to this Reddit thread, Windows 10 aptX support does not require any drivers in addition to what is part of the OS. I am mentioning that because numerous forum posts state you need to install special drivers. That does not seem to be true. As for aptX HD or aptX LL (low latency): those codecs do
  3. Am Having this issue with a completely different noise cancelling set of headphones. I would guess it's something related to a bad microphone. Wrong.
  4. Sennheiser RS 120 uses low latency (probably analog) RF, and is relatively affordable. Note the more expensive in the RS series use a "digital wireless" signal which will introduce more latency.
  5. Well, crap. +1 is what I have been trying to use for the past half hour. Guess I'll bite the bullet and get those resets rolling. Thanks dudes.
  6. Ok, so I'm connected with a laptop... what's the "other address" I should be using for the laptop? is the device, for example
  7. Devices configured with the /31 mask do not have keyboard/mouse capability. Can only factory reset or "log in" through a web portal to change settings.
  8. Yes, I have physical access to the devices
  9. Alright, so I made the mistake of setting some devices to a subnet mask of What windows IP settings do I need to employ to actually be able to reach the webportal of the devices to reconfigure their network settings?
  10. Few wireless ANC headphones are going to allow you to use the microphone when using the wired input. Also, most have some audio degradation using that jack, especially if the battery runs down. Get the QuietComfort35 II Gaming Headset if you need an integrated mic: https://www.bose.com/en_us/products/headphones/gaming_headset/quietcomfort-35-gaming-headset.html#v=qc35_ii_gaming_black The Shure Aonic 50 have the best sounding analog input jack I've heard on ANC headphones. Probably because they don't use lots of DSP to make the drivers sound good. Get these if you are ge
  11. If you have experience with soldering I'd say open it up and give 'er a go! Can't make it worse right? Hopefully it's just needing fresh batteries, but you could be right about a capacitor or something similar.
  12. What's uncomfortable about them? Did you do the rubber band trick?
  13. If you're weary about aftermarket parts, contact Sennheiser warranty department for your region. They can sell you original parts including cables. Alternatively, there are many options on Amazon. here is one: https://www.amazon.com/NewFantasia-Replacement-Compatible-Sennheiser-Headphones/dp/B07K824JBP
  14. I always buy replacement pads on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/s?k=hd598+sr+pads&ref=nb_sb_noss
  15. I really like the Sony option. They do have a lot of bass, which audiophiles wont like for comprehensive listening... but that's not what they're designed for. When on-the-go, the bass boost helps fight off all those other sounds around you that sneak into your ears through the rest of your body (ANC can't fight this). Riding in an airplane, car, train, etc, I find the sound to be perfect. The ANC has saved my ears during many long hours in rattling work vans traveling across Texas. Recently I got a pair of Shure Aonic 50.... much more accurate sound. You can hear details and instr
