    TheRandomness got a reaction from PlayStation 2 in New Watches May Help Measure Blood Sugar   
    Between finger pricks and the libre sensors... I might get myself a smart watch after never considering them before exclusively for this purpose. I'd like to know the accuracy beforehand though.

    TheRandomness reacted to SenKa in Getting into audiophile headphones.   
    Sennheiser HD600's and a Fiio BTR-5 can be had for that easily. fantastic combo, it's what I use. Don't forget to buy a replacement cable for the sennheisers so that you can use the 3.5mm jack, or get a 1/4 to 3.5mm adapter.
     
    Other misc advice if you pick that combo:
    Apparently HD600's sound like trash with anything but the factory pads. So, if you need to replace them (like I did) buy those. They are easy to find and not very expensive.

    The cable only plugs in to the headphones one way, dont force it.

    If you read the spec sheet for the BTR-5, they do not rate it for the power output requirement of the HD600's. It is agreed upon the BTR-5 is fairly under-spec'd for what it can provide, so ignore the factory rating. It's fine

    Windows volume settings should always be set to maximum to avoid reduction in bit depth, control your volume from the speakers themselves.

    TheRandomness reacted to Tigerleon in Are "surround sound" gaming headsets bs?   
    Then you'd want a good pair of stereo headphones. Just normal plain stereo headphones. Let the game's engine take care of sound processing. I'd recommend the SHP 9500 with a vmoda boom pro. Great "headset" for the price. Really wide soundstage and the imaging is great. You don't want any USB "gaming" headset since they always sound crap or they break outside of the warranty. Take advantage of the onboard soundcard if you have a decent one instead. So 3.5mm analog headphones is the way to go.

    TheRandomness reacted to rice guru in Good headset combination for music production and gaming?   
    I would look into something neutral and detailed.and kinda easy to drive Beyers are nice like the DT 880 but they are hard to drive and a Scarlett would not be able to drive them. If you wanted to drop a $100 on a magni 3+ or a fiio k5 pro then a dt 880 250 or 600 ohm would be a good consideration. A 990 would be decent but they are more colored and less accurate then a 880. A HD 600 can also be up for consideration once you get and amp but I would not use them for gaming.

    yea, I'd heard of Audeze, just always thought of them as a big and expensive brand, WAY out of my budget, so I never encountered these in my research, I'd heard of the Mobius before but somehow I forgot they even existed.

    TheRandomness reacted to Spotty in 'Your c**k is mine now' - Hacker hacks 'smart' chastity cage and demands $750 of BTC as ransom   
    Isn't being trapped in this device and not having control over it exactly what the people using it want? The hackers are going to be so confused when they receive their $750 along with a note saying "thanks babe, same time next week?"
     
    No idea how these are designed, but I'd be willing to bet it's a solenoid lock that could be unlocked with a magnet pretty easily.

    TheRandomness reacted to The Flying Sloth in How to know what voltage a sound card is able to supply to the microphone?   
    My first 'real' microphone was a BM800 and I had a very similar result/reaction to you. You won't find me arguing that it doesn't sound better than many USB or headset mics but it just doesn't live up to the status it claims as a studio mic, it has a very high noise floor and relatively low clarity compared to many other condenser mics and that really just comes down to it not being very well designed or manufactured.
     
    I no longer recommend them as since then I've had the opportunity to purchase and extensively use a modest list of actual studio grade microphones (some not too much more expensive than the 800) that sound and feel leagues ahead of it.

    If it's been kept at a low temperature, cleaned regularly, and is being sold at a discount (compared to cards that weren't mined on) I'd just say go for it.

    Over time thermal paste decays into Fluoroantimonic Acid which is 10 quadrillion times stronger than Sulphuric Acid, I'd immediately see a doctor about this. JKJKJKJK Everyone saying it's bad is joking And that 10 quadrillion thing is actually true.
