  1. I think I am just going to give up on Freesync and just get a used curved ultrawide.
  2. From what I can see they are mostly working towards freesync 4k monitors. Not much for ultrawides. LG has a 34" ultrawide with freesync, but it is only 1080p. They offer several different ultrawide 1440p monitors, but none with freesync.
  3. Just wondering if there are other ultrawide 1440p monitors out there with freesync. Not sure if I am ready to throw down 1k on a monitor quite yet.
  4. I got mine for $80 new when they were on sale at Jet for the MkII. I would think you could find them cheaper used.
  5. I can do that. The PSBs are made by the same person who made the HP50s (Paul Barton) I thought they were the same driver until I watched a shootout between them. They have more soundstage than any closed headphone I have ever tried, which I guess is the whole "Roomfeel" technology. Unpowered they are slightly V shaped, but not too prominent. The M4U 2 offers an internal amp that does give the headphones a slight bass boost, but if you are using them for home use, the M4U 1 are the same headphone without the amp or ANC for $50 less. Pretty easy to drive, pads are a little small but not uncomfor
  6. I didn't notice this until you posted it in another thread. Great suggestions. Couple things I will try to contribute... 668Bs may want to fall more towards the open end than closed. Takstar HI2050s are soon going to be over $100 since they have recently gone over a revision, and the ones now are just selling the old stock (I personally think the Pioneer SE-A1000 is a superior sounding headphone for the money). Probably going to be the same for the SHP9500 unfortunately. You could add the PSBs beside the NAD VISO HP50s since they are very similar. Lastly the M6 Pros should probably belong
  7. For that budget I would suggest getting the PSB M4U1 and a Vmoda BoomPro. The Audio-Technica MSR7 or NAD HP50 may work as well, but I don't think they offer as much soundstage. Edit: Forgot that they are $250 new, but you can often find them used for under $200.

    T50RP Modding?

    Doing it yourself is always more fun. I do love my pair. I will suggest that you have some sort of decent amp for these, as they do take a lot of power.

    T50RP Modding?

    WOuld depend on how cheap you can get the materials, and how cheap you can find the headphones. that isn't that bad of a deal really.
  10. You are such a trooper. I am surprised you haven't just given a "yeah sure" response by now. Also to OP, unless you are looking for that one to help support Mayflower Electronics, you will most likely have money by getting a Schiit Magni/Modi or get the Massdrop version of the O2+ODAC when it is available.

    T50RP Modding?

    Pretty much this. The DBV 3 mod is probably the best option for getting a great sounding headphone for not too much work.
  12. Literally the open version of the Clouds without a mic since they are the open version of the Takstar Pro80s ( What the HyperX Clouds are made from). For competitive gaming they would be a better option since they have better soundstage and imaging. Unfortunately they have recently gone over a revision recently and are now more expensive. If you can find some Philips SHP9500s that would always be my best suggestion for a gaming headphone (and headset) as long as they stay under $100, which you can add a Vmoda BoomPro for a mic easily.
  13. Technically an amp will be more like the power supply. As long as you have enough power to drive them you will be fine.
  14. They have the same drivers so they will sound the same. You can have it connected just by the 3.5mm jack, but you will need to use the included splitter to split the audio and the mic. The USB dongle is technically its own DAC, but it most likely won't have any better sound quality than your motherboard.
  15. They both sound the same. The Cloud II have more features with the 7.1 dongle, but that is not needed. The Cloud II does have a better mic, but not by much.
