    35 Ohms at 93db/mw is not that easy to drive well.

    HumdrumPenguin got a reaction from MiliAxe in Need help choosing between these headphones for casual usage.   
    If sound is priority, none of these would do great. The problem is that beyond headphones, you'd need to invest a bit on source and amplification to get things rolling (assuming you have space, that is). Let us know your budget and sound preferences. 
     
    Beyers and Grados are on the analytical side of things, which can be harsh depending on system synergy. If he was looking for something exclusively for fps games, where pinpointing location could give him an advantage, then we could start with something in the lines of your suggestions, but otherwise I'd look somewhere else personally.

    HumdrumPenguin got a reaction from 514_AppleGuy in Leaking HD 560s   
    There are open back and closed back headphones. Your cans are open back. The sound is supposed to go through and leak (this gives you better soundstage and adds an extra "airiness" to the sound). You will hear others while wearing your Senns, and others will hear you. That's how things work and there is nothing you can do but sending them back and going for a closed back pair of headphones. If you were to, for example, tape the outside of the cup to avoid sound leaking, it would tamper with the sound in a bad way. They are designed to have that "leak".

    HumdrumPenguin got a reaction from Ibrahim Gamal El-Nabawy in Confused about buying Shp9500 + DAC amp with saving the money or investigate the all bucks with buying DT990 pro + DAC amp !   
    To my ears, the HD58X is the best out of the three you mentioned. I haven't heard the 560S personally, but there have been some good positive reviews (albeit having a tad bit brightness on the top end). I would also not connect any of these headphones on the motherboard (any motherboard for the matter), so I'd make some savings for a cheap stack.

    It helps if you say what you already have (if anything), what you are looking for sound wise, budget, where you are hooking it up to, etc.

    HumdrumPenguin got a reaction from Ishan2223 in Will i7-8700k bottleneck rtx3080   
    Depending on the games and resolution, yes. These new cards are making current CPUs a run for their money.
     
    Instead of upgrading to another 1080p monitor at an even higher refresh rate, have you considered bumping up the resolution instead, while maintaining the refresh rate? The difference, even at 1440p, will be massive and you'll likely benefit much more, not only in games, but for everything else as well.

    That's assuming you get a card in the first place. Also, new graphics card  just by itself doesn't equal new PC.

    I agree with your post, but I still don't think we're quite there yet. This will change once latency becomes really low, and you get to experience pretty much the same as if you had the hardware. Once we get to this stage, we can fork the money into getting the best visual and sound systems we can afford.

    Aside from the FE and Asus models, all other RTX 3080 cards seem to be consistently crashing at 2000Mhz+ core clock speed. Actually, people here in the forum are already complained about crashes on the FE model. To add salt to the injury, a leak from the GALAX roadmap shows that a 3080 with 20gb VRAM is coming, and likely very soon (as well as a RTX 3060).
     
    Now... ask yourself, once these cards are out, how much do you think your 10gb model will be worth? Not to mention that it will be bottlenecking your card's raw power rather sooner than later. The new consoles are raising the graphical bar, so don't go expecting to be safe with 8-10gb VRAM, because you won't be. It's the 1060 3gb and 6gb dilemma all over again. Thinking that you may need the extra VRAM more in 2 ore 3 years only, once 4000 series are released, is just wrong, because you shouldn't buy a product and expect it to be good for just a couple years. 
     
    Also, for all of you who say that the card is good enough, I tell you this: you don't buy a high end product to settle for good enough. And hey, the RTX 3080 is not even that.

    You don't buy, you wait for cards with proper VRAM that can also sustain over 2ghz clock speeds, and have a higher power limit.
