got my MEMT 5Xs today
>super small and comfy
>sound is great
The only problem is microphonics. I can hear every touch of the cable and slightly touching the earphone is like taping a mic. Securing the cable with a clip does not help since its so sensitive to vibrations you can hear your footsteps.
Would recommend for stationary use, but not so great for active use. If anyone knows good earphones (not necessarily IEMs) for jogging (something comfy and less prone to microphonics) feel free to post suggestions.

I got one of these X96 minis. It's a Kodi box with most things preinstalled. Works pretty good. Not fast but not slow enough to notice. WiFi range is terrible. So keep it close your router. Libreelec is easily bootable, so it's easy to get away from the botnet. Would recommend as a gift for people who watch TV but don't know how to torrent or stream

Chinese bathmat showed up. When I first picked up the package I figured it'd be shit since it weighs nothing, but it seems to stick well to the floor despite that and feels nice. Will see.

So recently a stash of memed PHILIPS headphones SHP8000 and SHP9500 were discovered on AliExpress and shared here and on /hpg/

I bought a Philips SHP8000 from this seller and can confirm that it's the real deal. Bought it for $47 in the AliExpress app. The seller even threw in one of those phone rings as a gift, won't be using it and regift it but still nice of the Chinaman.

KZ ED16 and the ones mentioned before.


Review of the cowin e7 after two-three weeks of use:

I already told you guys the sound was pleasant for the price I paid, which was 30 ish usd. Nothing too special but I like it a lot. I tested the battery life, and they deliver that claimed 30 hours. I didn't use them at full volume because they offer good passive isolation, and didn't use full volume because I'm not deaf. With around 20-50% of max volume they lasted me 36 hours on the first run and I have yet to discharge them again, after 13 hours it says 90% on my phone. I checked, the battery is actually 758 mAh, at least on my unit, which seems about right based on their life. They have been yet to show signs of wear, i was worried because they felt a bit cheap. My model can be used wired when off (there is a newer version that can't).

2018-10-08 19:49:39 UTC

The guys who sent me plastic flowers instead of CPU and memory waited until the very last moment and then replied to the dispute with my own photo with some Chinese text photoshopped over it, and a proposal of "refund $0.00". Can someone translate what the hell they're saying? Are they mad?

>Build quality
Cheap plastic, but sturdy enough.
Face padding is extremely cheap, and barely offer any comfort.
Head strap is surprisingly good.
Phone padding is rubber and hold the phone well
>Lenses
Made from cheap plastic, but large so you get that immersive feeling.
I'm not sure about the diopter of the lenses, but I get the feeling it's not as it should but it could be my eyesight.
Also there is no way to wear it with glasses.
You "can" see the doorway effect if you focus enough, but it's not a big deal.
>Adjustment knobs
You can bring the lenses together using the wheel to a good degree, and focus using the small bar for each lens separately, but to a limit.
>Controls
No controls to use obviously, but I manged to get some sort of response from it, can't tell if it's my finger touching the screen or reacting somehow.
I did manged to simulate the Google cardboard magnetic button with a small strong magnet, though you need to keep holding it.
You can use a mouse or a joystick wired or wireless and it should work just fine.
>Phone holding
There's no moving joints to put your phone, so you have to slide your phone in the recess made by the plastic, but it stay in place well enough, though I don't recommend sudden fast head movements.
Also all of the ports remain available, as well as the camera, so you can use it for AR as well.
>Weight & comfortability
Surprisingly light, but the cheap padding press on the nose so you can't wear it for long.
Also didn't get any motion sickness.
>Tested devices
I used Huawei Mate 10 Pro, and iPhone 7, both fit snuggly without issues, but I had to take it out from the case.

Also this is the first VR set I've really tried, worst case scenario I'd just salvage the lenses and build a cardboard.
But for 5$ it's good enough for shemale VR videos.
There were other designs, like pic related which cost a little more, but no added features just different container.
Any other specific questions?

So I bought this gamepad, FlyDigi Apex for 59$.
The manual is in chinkspeak, had to talk to customer support to get an english pdf. Also, apparently I can't connect it to my computer with a wire directly. Instead I have to connect a wireless dongle which came with the box. So that sucks.
Aside from that though this controller is really good. It has texturized rubber on the back of the handles, extra c+z buttons next to ABXY. Start and select are easy to press, and clicky. Analogs are smooth to control with jagged rubber coating it, although the Analog buttons are kinda stiff to press. Dpad is made of really smooth plastic, feels good to use it, every direction has a feel-good kinda click. Bumbers are easy to press both from the outer and inner sides. Triggers are pretty much like X1, but at the back of the controller are a set of two switches, to shorten the press distance of each trigger. Also at the back are 4 additional buttons, which sit naturally under the middle fingers.
Pretty good controller overall gotta say...

I've recently also got myself a BM800, ordered full kit from Neewer.
https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Neewer-NW-800-Kit/32830413467.html
It's okay I guess, I am yet to mod it and I wonder if I even have to since I got it for gayman, not for high quality recording. I don't think it is even better than my old dynamic on-desk mic. Maybe I am doing something wrong on my Xonar is just garbage.

So I got my chinkshit 50' cat6 cable I mentioned a few threads back, can't seem to find the wish listing anymore (get an error that it's not found when clicking from my order history) but it's the same price on Amazon apparently. Paid $9 after shipping on wish and that's how much it is on Amazon base, with free shipping.

Anyway, it's perfect. 1Gbps up and down is achieved a lot more consistently than the 30' round cat5 it replaced, and it's a flat cable. Even came with 20x cable clips so I was able to run it along door frames and moulding to conceal it. Seems they only ever use this same image on every listing regardless of site, so if you see it, this is the one. I'll post the Amazon link below if you don't want to hunt for it.

They are smoother than my old pbt keycaps and a bit thinner. Works best if you have front mounted leds.

Dafen Village painting review

2018-11-01 19:46:13 UTC

>>68314580
I have anon, I ordered a painting of a dog and the quality was really good, I ordered a size 13 inches x 18 inches. You have to give half the purchase cost up front just in case you decide you don't like it.

Its best to get a larger size because 27 inches x 36 inches was only like $40 more, just didn't fit.

From first deposit to the painting being made was exactly one working week. The rest of the payment was sent and then it was shipped one week later using DHL.

So 3 weeks(ish) total.

Cost me $99 total but is probably one of the best chink purchases I have made. Out of like 300 purchases.

Reposting this review for archival purposes, another Dafen village painting commissioned by a different anon.

Dafen anon update part deux.

Firstly, the international zionist jews who run DHL still fucked me out of $20 at the door. "Henry" from Dafen village was a bro and put down $19.00 for the value of the package. That didn't stop DHL fisting my asshole for another $20. Fuck DHL.

To be fair, Henry only gave me two choices DHL or Fedex. The coffers of both companies overflow with the jew gold.

Back to the art.

I have unpacked the painting and laid it out on a table. Its going to need a couple of days to flatten out /relax before I attempt to frame it.

It is an actual painting. Looks like watercoloured was used first, then oil was painted on top. But I am not an art expert.

I am happy with the transaction. Minus the double dipping by DHL.

5 stars on transaction
5 stars on communication
5 stars on shipping / packaging
1 star for DHL as a company

Total cost:

From Henry's email:

"so the total amount of this oil painting in 30x40" inches is USD 139 + diy stretch bar USD 10 + DHL courier charge USD 45 = USD 194, kindly please note."

PLUS $20 Beavers as a extra fuckening at the door.

source material: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thirty-six_Views_of_Mount_Fuji_(Hiroshige)#/media/File:20_-_The_Entrance_Gate_at_Enoshima.jpg

12 days to paint from commissioning

4 days to arrive to America's Hat

I will make a final update once I frame it in a couple of days and get it hanging on the wall.

>Anon forgot to post that final update

My scallion pens just arrived though I think they look more like leeks than like scallion. They feel nice, they have a good grip and they're thin. Both my handwriting
and my text creativity suck but that's besides the point.

I asked the seller to send green ones only but he didn't. Nontheless, he sent me double the ordered amount.

A few anons asked me for a review of the Xiaomi Roborock S50 robotic vacuum. In short, I love the thing. It's methodical in the way it cleans, dividing the house into blocks, mapping out the parameter then vacuuming in rows, before moving on. If it missed any nooks it goes back and does those. It's fun to observe it surveying its surroundings and plotting its next path. Vacuuming power seems decent and I'm surprised by how much it picks up every day. The app is good, not that aesthetically pleasing but it provides a map of your home and the ability to clean certain zones and set up virtual walls. The vacuum did get its brush tangled on one of my old, scraggly rugs. I was meaning to throw this rug out anyways and no issues since then. Build quality is excellent, it's able to climb high rugs and over edges without a problem. Mop feature is a nice bonus but it doesn't hold much water so I think its use is limited to mopping a small to medium size area.

I do not have experience with other robotic vacuums but the reviews suggest that the Xiaomi is comparable to or outperforms vacuums twice as expensive, especially in its ability to intelligently and methodically clean every inch of the house.

Reposting this OneOdio Studio Headphones review for archival purposes

Bought these mostly on impulse since they were cheap headphones and mine were beginning to show signs of decay. Figured I'd use my current ones while I wait the month or two that it would take for these to arrive. Basically I did not expect much from them from the start.

Lo and behold, they arrive in 11 days. (Ordered on the 5th, had a notice on my door the 16th, did not pick up until the 18th since I was on holiday) It is important to note that I did not pay extra for any fast delivery options.

The sound quality is good. I have nothing negative to say about it.
I was pleasantly surprised by just how good these headphones are at cancelling out noise. The padding is also very comfy on top of that. In fact, the entire thing is comfortable to wear. It does not sag and press on the ears, instead it fully surrounds them without using them for support.
The microphone is nothing to write home about. Just a simple earphone mic. I'd compare it to a iphone/samsung earphone mic if I really had to.
Now this does not mean that you are bound to this shitty mic, as there are two jacks on the headphones (3.5mm and 6.3mm, one under each muff) and the cable is detachable, so you can easily buy a new cable with the desired microphone.
I'd say the main downside of these is that they are a little heavier than the headphones that I am used to, but it's because it has metal parts for the adjustable bits, which I ultimately can appreciate.
For anyone interested in the packaging, it was a cardboard box wrapped in plastic with the actual headphone box inside of it, no damage to any packaging that I could see.

>tl;dr:

>Pros
Good sound.
Very comfortable.
Great noise cancelling

>Cons
Shitty mic.
A little heavier than your usual headphones.

>Shipping
Fast
No damage

This is one of my many order slowly getting home.
The Howard light max lite.
No chinkshit, but maybe someone appreciates it.
Anyway:
These are, as the packaging says, low pressure earplugs.
These can dampen sounds of 34DB I think and are really soft to the touch.
Even somehow cute.
The earplugs are worn right before bed, so I can find out if the surrounding sounds still make my life a reason to end my air addiction.

More tests incoming with the:
X5 headset by 3m(37db) the bilsom 303L and S version(?DB) which are still taking some time to arrive.
Let's hope the money was spent well.

That guy was dead-eyeing everyone, and refused to let no more than 20 folks in the store at a time. The queue was pretty bad. Took an hour and a half from where I was just to step foot inside the place. The first 300 were given wristbands, and if they made a purchase got a goody bag containing a T-Shirt, Lanyard and Mi Fidget Cube (pic related).
