  1. The Panasonic ES-LV67 (A803) that I ordered DOES A REALLY CLOSE SHAVE although it feels like a toy when holding it.
  2. Yeah, rotary shavers have that flaw for many of us. Foil shavers, supposedly, do a close shave, but the motor has to be a stong one and the foils have to have a good design. Cheaper shavers usually have weaker motors and can't cut that fast.
  3. I can get the OneBlade pretty much everywhere, but from what I've seen and read - it's the opposite of a close shave, in fact it's impossible to get a close shave by using it. And looking at the design, that looks obvious.
  4. I prefer electric razors for shaving and I am looking for a new one. The old one I have (a few years old, was a gift from some relatives) is the Braun Series 3 320s-4. It doesn't do a real close shave. I have also used rotary shavers from Philips (they don't offer a close shave and they tend to pull my neckbeard which can be quite painful and skin-irritating), some AEG and Sinbo foil shavers (cheap ones), a Grundig foil shaver (that was the worst, pulled hair insted of trimming it) and an old Braun 3770 (my first electric shaver). What is important for a close shave; a strong motor (
  5. I looke for all those mentioned, couldn't get any of them, looked at a few different options, found a few great reviews on the 560S and ordered the 560S in the end. I simply can't get anything better in the ~150€ price range. The 560S will arrive in ~2 weeks.
  6. Here's one of the stores https://www.links.hr/hr/slusalice-100506#/prFilter=From-593!-#!To-1332&pageSize=36&viewMode=list&orderBy=11&pageNumber=1 I'll link a few more later. 100€ is roughly 750 Kn. I wouldn't like to go above 150€ (1150 Kn). Would the Audio-Technica ATH-AVA400 be any good? It's rather cheap...
  7. From Philips, only the cheap low end models are available to buy here. I don't really listen to music, at least not often on my PC. I'm not a basshead. Soundstage is key. I use the Asus Xonar U5 external sound card. Shouldn't have issues powering up to 300 Ohms if I'm not mistaken. One day I'll get something better. Out of the three mentioned, only the 560s is available to me and it's on a sale lowered from 200€ to 150€. I am looking at other options too, but I don't know what to look for out of those that are availabe, that's a huge pita.
  8. Is the HD560s a decent upgrade over the HyperX Cloud (Pro) worth the money (150€ on sale here)? Mainly soundwise for multiplayer gaming (PUBG and other shooters).
  9. @Brok3n But who cares? @OfficialTechSpace @Tigerleon My budget is quite lower than those you guys recommend. The HyperX Cloud is from 70 to 120 USD depending on the version (Core, Pro, II, Alpha), at least here. I don't think I would be able to go with more than 1000 Croatian Kuna (that's roughly $160 USD or 135€ EUR) with shipping, taxes and everything included. Quite honestly, I'd still be in the Cloud price range. And, please take into consideretion, most "audiohile company" headphones are pricier here than in the US. Would it be ok for me to name a few mod
  10. That probably wouldn't include import dutes but would still require 50-70€ of shipping and the 25% VAT on that (price+shipping). Sadly, paying that much is not an option for me. Something from Sennheiser, Audio-Technica or such?
  11. Sadly, Philips headphones are available to me only by ordering from abroad meaning huge delivery costs, taxes and import duties. Doubling the cost, if not even more. Although, I was looking at some of them, the ones that Zy and a few others were recommending for years...
  12. I have a HyperX Cloud headset since October 2014 and I'm still fine with the audio quality and the earcup comfort (have a few different Brainwavz pad sets), but what bothers me more and more, besides the age of the headphones, is the fact that the headset extended to the max presses on the top of my head too much in order for the cups to fit my ears. The headband is too short, I won't say too small. Messes up my hair and isn't thatr comfortable for longer wear. What would you recommend, which headphones? I don't need USB, I have a decent external AMP/DAC (Asus Xonar U5)
  13. So should I simply crimp a RJ11 on the CAT6 and call it a day or shall I leave it as it is (two wires from a twisted pair twisted onto the vires of a regular phone cable that has a factory connected RJ11 on the other end)?
  14. The RX 550 is slower than many R7 and R9 cards. If you had a 270, 285 or 280 you had a stronger card and not by a tiny bit.
