In regards to ear health, just make sure you're not listening to your music above 85dB (and ideally <80dB) and you will see little-no negative impacts. As long as you do this, you can use any headphones.

rtings is not a website to be trusted. In fact, it's the laughingstock of the headphone reviewing community.

In fact, I only trust a very few sources when it comes to reviewing headphones, and one of those is myself. I've listened to most of the headphones you mentioned and many others, so I can trust myself when I recommend a good pair of headphones. Many of the people you will see on Reddit or even popular review sites do not know how to listen critically, haven't heard enough headphones, and don't know enough about what makes a headphone good to actually properly recommend stuff.

Are these the only headphones you can buy? If possible, I would look for the DT 880 instead of the 990 if possible, as the 990 is terribly peaky and strongly V-shaped. I wouldn't recommend the 58X due to the grainy treble and overall meh sound quality compared to other headphones around that price range.

If you need noise damping, I would stick with closed back headphones (not 990 or 58X). If you can find the AKG K550 or K553 in your price range, those are great. Otherwise, the MH751 you listed is a solid pick considering it's a Takstar Pro82.

HyperX Cloud is based on the Pro80. MH751 is based on the Pro82. They sound a decent bit different just given that the drivers are designed differently and the Pro82 is vented. Pro82 is generally just a superior headphone.

I wouldn't listen to power supply calculators. They don't source actually accurate power measurements, so it's all just estimates and number fudging anyway.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Suggestions on Wired Headset/Headphones w/Third-Party Attachable Mic"

  • 11 months ago
  • 1 point

Given that the Modmic is only £7 more than the boompro in the UK, I'll be recommending that for the mic. It's better and works with all headphones, whereas the Boompro needs a detachable cable.

At around £130, I'd highly suggest AD500X's (£97) + Antlion Modmic (£35). The AD500X's offer a mind-blowing level of imaging for the price range and the modmic will be nicer than something like a boompro.

Other headphone recommendations include HD 559's (£90) and AD700X's (£130, just all around better AD500X's). I'd continue the list but I'm somewhat busy and I'm sure slkippp will have more suggestions.

I didn’t. I actually agree with you. I was just pointing out that in the future I would recommend leaving the age out of the argument against AS5 entirely. Sorry if there was a misunderstanding.

Do remember that NT-H1 came out over 10 years ago as well. The Noctua is the paste I personally use (for good reason), but there’s no denying that it’s very old. What I’m driving at is that the age of AS5 isn’t necessarily the big reason that people should be using when recommending against it.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "What would be the best Headset for $50 USD?"

Cloud Core if you really want to go with a headset.

Samson SR850 + a cheap lapel mic or something like a Massdrop MiniMic would do better from personal experience.

Dynamic = directional

Condenser = omnidirectional

These are both dynamic mics, which means they only pick up sound in a cone in front of them. They were designed to be used in a stage setting, so that the mic doesn't pick up the audience in the background or other instruments on stage.

You'll be needing a dynamic mic. I suggest the Audio Technica ATR2100 at $70 or a Shure SM58 at $100.

  • 12 months ago

Unfortunately, there just aren’t really any good mice with pinky and ring finger rests because those generally tend to impede movement. I would check out the Logitech G502 as it fits all of your other needs. I think you’ll find that after a while, you’ll get used to the new shape.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "The Old Temperature Problem Of The Fx 6300"

  • 12 months ago

Those temperatures you are getting are actually very good for an older, hotter chip like the FX 6300 (especially with an older, mediocre cooler like the H55). You won’t see any throttling for at least another 25 degrees Celsius, so you are absolutely fine.

As for your second point, upgrading to AM4 would be a very good idea. You’ll get much better performance, temps and longevity.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Is a 240mm aio really enough for a 9900K?"

The H80 outperforms many 240mm AIO’s, so I’m not sure what your point is. The radiator is twice as thick, so even though it’s half as long, it still keeps up with its larger counterparts. Check out some reviews from Tweaktown and Techpowerup if you’re curious.

Question: What do you think of the HD58X's in comparison to the HD 6XX's? I've been heavily considering them as I've seen them touted as "almost 660S's". If they really are very close to 660S's, I will probably buy them.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "2.0, 5.1 and 7.1 what's the difference?"

  • 14 months ago
  • 2 points

In general, the directional audio you get from software-implemented surround sound is actually worse than the directional audio you get from a good pair of stereo cans. I would suggest reading into imaging and sound stage, which are what actually matters when it comes to gaming.

Edit: just to clarify, you can get a good pair of stereo cans with good imaging (sound placement) for around the same price as gaming-branded “7.1” headphones.

I have to say I agreed with you until I went and used a nice mouse for a long time. It has nothing to do with the buttons, considering my G403 just has the two standard side buttons. It’s just something about the high quality feel all around.

Good to know that about the G303. I suppose that makes sense, considering the size and shape.
