    Indeed the do. But the sound is very enclosed and sounds very artificial if that is how I can describe them. The GSP models are very bad imho. The GSP 600's are super uncomfortable, heavy and the sound is tinny and up close and personal. The price doesn't justify what you get. Just get a pair of headphones with a mic. The "gaming" aspect doesn't make anything better. There are other gaming models from sennheiser as well that probably sound great although never tried.

    As I said/implied before, not really. No stock Cherry MX switch is close (MX Green only gets close in terms of weighting), and out of the clones/developments from MX, Kailh BOX Pale Blues are perhaps the closest since it's very clicky, doesn't have over-the-top tactility and but still feels heavier than most switches. But, neither MX click jackets or BOX click bars are a good approximate to buckling springs. I'm not saying modern clickies are necessarily bad - I totally love Kailh BOX clickies and they're head and shoulders above standard MX clickies. But same or close to buckling springs? No, unfortunately. The mechanisms are just too different.
     
    And the fact of the matter is if such buckling springs 'clone' existed for modern keyboards and were accessible to everyone, you'd likely already know about it since it'd be big news.

    mh752 are based on the takstar pro82 if I remember correctly ... and I think there's one hyper X headset (maybe the cloud 2 ?) that is based on the takstar pro80 ... not a lot of companies does that yeah and it would be nice to see more of them do so.  Also sennheiser makes headset ... the microphones is quite nice on them ...

    Better than vintage buckling springs or other switches? If the former, Unicomps are simply easier to 'plug and play' unless you have a PS/2 port (and of course much more hassle free compared to dealing with terminal Ms). The core tech behind Unicomp's Ms is the same as the final Model Ms produced by Lexmark (P/N 42H1292, from 1995 onwards) and thus share many of their typing feel characteristics. That's to the say, IMO, it's good enough. Unicomp's value is that its get a warranty and they offer some customisation. They're not as heavy or as sturdy as the oldest Ms from the mid-'80s, but as someone who owns many Ms from all periods, I still think Unicomps are enjoyable and in fact my best feeling M is a Unicomp (2013 General Electric Healthcare branded 101-key). From the current range though, I'd only recommend the New Model M and Mini Model M since they're made with their latest tooling, and the PC-122 if you want a lot of keys to play with. The rest are made with tooling bought from Lexmark and from scavenging from the other IBM factories as they discontinued their production.
     
    If you mean compared to other switches, then that's tricky to answer. If you're looking for a satisfying click and smooth tactility above all else, Model Ms can still blow away most of the modern competition, IMO. But, they're quite heavy switches and not the strongest in terms of tactility (the draw for Model M fans is how the tactility is generated, not how much of it exists). The closest modern analogue is probably Kailh BOX Pale Blues, but even then, its not an exact equivelant experience. To be honest, people who buy Model Ms don't buy them for the switches alone - it's for the whole package of the vintage and utilitarian looks and as you said its alternative use as a weapon. The fact that you categorised the lack of backlighting as a "drawback" tells me that these are maybe not the keyboard for you. But, it's not impossible to mod backlighting in if you so desired.
     
    In terms of the KRO technical limitations - all Model Ms (new and old) suffer since they're membrane driven keyboards. Unicomp's new Mini Model M migitates this somewhat with its improved matrix design, but if you want NKRO and buckling springs, a (more pricy) Model F is your only option.

    These are hot garbage for gaming I would not recommend these at all.
     
    For pure gaming out of these the ad 700 x is the best wide soundstage decent imaging good airy highs for footsteps. Mic wise the modmic would be a decent pick. If you need a good comfortable closed back the mh752 would be my pick out of the list . The MH 752 is one of the best values here decent mic decent gaming performance for under a $100. The g433 is a weird pick for me I generally never recommend it but having tried it recently it's actually pretty good and a safe recommendation positional audio is pretty good, mids are surprisingly decent for a gaming headset overall tuning is pretty good for gaming  it a bad pick but I'm not sure how they are long term. Overall the best thing on the list imo is the 700x

    Gonna be totally candid here, anyone dumb enough to pay $5,000 a GPU deserves to be scammed, their just as much a part of the problem as the scalpers are. If people didn't buy at these STUPID prices there'd be no market for them and the scalpers would disappear.

    Hey there.
    Keychron C1: TKL Layout (87 Keys, No Numpad), Plastic Frame, Double-Shot ABS Keycaps, Detachable USB Cable.
    Available in hot-swappable or soldered variants. Available with no backlight, white backlight, or RGB backlight. Equipped with Gateron Red (linear), Gateron Blue (clicky), or Gateron Brown (tactile) switches. Switches may be easily swapped with aftermarket ones for hot-swappable keyboards. Switches may still be swapped for soldered keyboards, so long as a soldering iron is within reach. Standard bottom row is compatible with most aftermarket keycap sets. Software/Firmware is locked to Keychron's stuff.  
    Corsair K68 RGB: Full-Sized Layout, Plastic Frame, Double-Shot ABS Keycaps, Non-Detachable USB Cable.
    Available with RGB backlight. Equipped with Cherry MX Red switches. Switches are soldered into the board, and may still be swapped for other aftermarket ones, so long as a soldering iron is within reach. Equipped with membrane layer between keycaps and mounting plate (More Info: Corsair K68 Mechanical Gaming Keyboard Review by TechPowerUp). Equipped with dedicated media keys. Non-standard bottom row is not compatible with most aftermarket keycap sets, due to the 6.5U Spacebar and odd 1.5U/1U Modifier keys. Software/Firmware is locked to Corsair's CUE (Corsair Utility Engine).  
    Keychron K4 Version 2: 96%/Compact-1800 Layout (Full-Sized, Condensed), Plastic/Aluminum Frame, ABS Keycaps, Detachable USB Cable, Wireless Connectivity.
    Available in hot-swappable or soldered variants. Available in plastic frame or aluminum frame variants. Available with white backlight or RGB backlight. Equipped with Gateron Red (linear), Gateron Blue (clicky), or Gateron Brown (tactile) switches. Switches may be easily swapped with aftermarket ones for hot-swappable keyboards. Switches may still be swapped for soldered keyboards, so long as a soldering iron is within reach. Standard bottom row is compatible with most aftermarket keycap sets. Software/Firmware is locked to Keychron's stuff.

    What keyboard form factor are you interested in or more familiar with, and are you interested in customizing your keyboard?
    Keychron's an easy pick for custom keeb enthusiasts, assuming that people can find it in stock (either from Keychron's site or on Amazon). If you've no need for the numpad, then the Keychron C1's a fair option. If you'd like the conventional full-sized layout with the numpad, then consider the Keychron C2. If you've like the full-sized layout with the numpad, but would like to same some desk space, consider the Keychron K4. Whether you should pick the hot-swappable variant or not depends on whether you're interested in swapping the keyboard's switches out in the future. Corsair K68 would be appealing for people already invested in the Corsair ecosystem (synced RGB?), or those that need extra features on their keeb within easy reach (e.g. media controls). Customizability with aftermarket parts will be quite limited (especially full keycap sets), however.

    This really means nothing. It just means a company spent extra money to get certification confirming it does at least 24 bits 96khz. Which most devices support 24 bits and most people can't hear over 20khz. So it's a sticker used more of a gimmick than something actually materring
