2017-10-06 18:53:32 UTC

2017-10-06 18:53:40 UTC

true

2017-10-06 18:54:57 UTC

tho technicaly i was first but evidence went missing :3

2017-10-06 18:55:12 UTC

you could try ghetto rigging the ecmcs3 onto a sort of boom

2017-10-06 18:55:12 UTC

due mods are rampant shitposters :P

2017-10-06 18:55:24 UTC

bamboo stick hotglued to headset

2017-10-06 18:56:33 UTC

and ecmc to that

2017-10-06 18:56:50 UTC

you can afford a bamboo stick?

2017-10-06 18:56:55 UTC

:P

2017-10-06 18:57:25 UTC

its not the price i just prefer Price:performance:longevity ratio to be high

2017-10-06 18:57:39 UTC

and hotglue costs more than bamboo sticks

2017-10-06 18:58:01 UTC

thoo~ i could machine my own arm for it or 3D print

2017-10-06 18:58:21 UTC

but so far best option has been https://www.thomann.de/gb/superlux_hmd_660x.htm that

2017-10-06 18:58:34 UTC

2017-10-06 19:02:06 UTC

2017-10-06 19:02:23 UTC

2017-10-06 19:02:53 UTC

akg is just a ripoff of superlux though? <:alithink:327930371796893698>

2017-10-06 19:02:59 UTC

first

2017-10-06 19:03:12 UTC

cute

2017-10-06 19:04:13 UTC

also i did not know until recently that you can get 2pin kz cables for like $3 a piece on taobao

2017-10-06 19:04:24 UTC

and also they have a braided, non-stock varient for like $6

2017-10-06 19:04:59 UTC

i got that one recently

2017-10-06 19:05:03 UTC

looks super nice

2017-10-06 19:05:21 UTC

im going to be putting a gr07 driver into a zs3 shell so i figured i might as well

2017-10-06 19:05:25 UTC

also is there anything like cheap xlr-mic amp in the world

2017-10-06 19:05:30 UTC

yes

2017-10-06 19:05:34 UTC

what does not burn my house down

2017-10-06 19:05:35 UTC

just search phantom power supplies

2017-10-06 19:05:42 UTC

or find a used audio interface

2017-10-06 19:05:48 UTC

or just wire something yourself

2017-10-06 19:05:58 UTC

not a particularly complex circuit afaik

2017-10-06 19:06:22 UTC

ye and i have basic automation engineer background so it should be easy but im lasy

2017-10-06 19:06:55 UTC

this would give me reason to get some shitty mixer tho~

2017-10-06 19:07:08 UTC

cheap behringers are all over the place

2017-10-06 19:07:14 UTC

i copped an older xenyx or whatever for 20 AUD

2017-10-06 19:07:23 UTC

yeah xenyx series is cheap as fuck even when new

2017-10-06 19:07:43 UTC

and then grab a UCA202/222 to acd as DA/AD conversion

2017-10-06 19:08:04 UTC

though a cheaper interface would do the same

2017-10-06 19:08:19 UTC

as in like a used focusrite or whatever

2017-10-06 19:08:19 UTC

here-was-link-for-usb-behringer-xenyx

2017-10-06 19:08:31 UTC

apparently their USB ones suck

2017-10-06 19:08:39 UTC

ahh thanks for the warning

2017-10-06 19:08:47 UTC

though I don't have any reasoning beyond that

2017-10-06 19:08:55 UTC

gonna have to do some research yourself

2017-10-06 19:09:13 UTC

a used xenyx and a uca202 is still a fair bit cheaper tho

2017-10-06 19:09:37 UTC

or just a used cheapo interface

2017-10-06 19:10:57 UTC

funfact with any of those sets the setup would cost more than the headset

2017-10-06 19:11:19 UTC

are there any good bluetooth memes?

2017-10-06 19:11:34 UTC

my audio port is broken on my phone so i always use bluetooth

2017-10-06 19:11:47 UTC

you could use a small little DAC

2017-10-06 19:11:52 UTC

but most people probably dont want to

2017-10-06 19:12:22 UTC

uh

2017-10-06 19:12:22 UTC

i dont care either way really

2017-10-06 19:12:29 UTC

could you show me a picture demonstrating the setup?

2017-10-06 19:12:41 UTC

kris bluedio N2

2017-10-06 19:12:46 UTC

is the dac connected to my phone via bluetooth?

2017-10-06 19:13:06 UTC

conntected to your phone via an otg cable

2017-10-06 19:13:15 UTC

it essentially acts as your headphone port

2017-10-06 19:13:45 UTC

hmmm

2017-10-06 19:14:02 UTC

smaller ones are good since theyre light enough to not bother you

2017-10-06 19:15:26 UTC

are the quality affected?

2017-10-06 19:15:34 UTC

I do have an EQ app on my phone so I can adjust

2017-10-06 19:15:56 UTC

maybe ill try out a chink bluetooth headphones and report back since it seems no one had gone for it

2017-10-06 19:16:09 UTC

or they may be dead from exploding battery

2017-10-06 19:16:55 UTC

no, the quality will be fine

2017-10-06 19:16:59 UTC

hell, probably better

2017-10-06 19:17:19 UTC

But it won't affect bt quality

2017-10-06 19:17:36 UTC

Dac is in the headphones

2017-10-06 19:17:56 UTC

yee, you dont need it for bluetooth

2017-10-06 19:18:08 UTC

Ah, as a replacement for headphone port

2017-10-06 19:18:11 UTC

I scrolled up

2017-10-06 19:18:14 UTC

Makes sense

2017-10-06 19:18:41 UTC

I use fiio e07k with my oneplus 3t, quality is much better even for Spotify 128k

2017-10-06 19:18:58 UTC

But that's a different price range lol

2017-10-06 19:19:11 UTC

damn

2017-10-06 19:19:13 UTC

how much was it?

2017-10-06 19:19:21 UTC

and probably much bigger than he would like

2017-10-06 19:19:21 UTC

70usd?

2017-10-06 19:19:39 UTC

It fits in my phone case but it is bulky

2017-10-06 19:19:43 UTC

you arent using an e07k inline like you would the dac i linked

2017-10-06 19:19:51 UTC

the problem with these gadgets is i'm quite scared to bring to the gym bc it might get damaged

2017-10-06 19:19:57 UTC

i have an e18 strapped to my phone lol

2017-10-06 19:20:02 UTC

Gym doesn't need quality

2017-10-06 19:20:09 UTC

Yeah strapped xD

2017-10-06 19:20:29 UTC

Get some bluedios for gym i would say

2017-10-06 19:20:39 UTC

So your USB port doesn't get damaged

2017-10-06 19:20:48 UTC

By some unfortunate twist

2017-10-06 19:20:51 UTC

😦

2017-10-06 19:20:55 UTC

i sweat like a mofo

2017-10-06 19:20:57 UTC

oh for the gym, just get bluetooth then

2017-10-06 19:21:02 UTC

wires are annoying anyway

2017-10-06 19:21:47 UTC

@Gerboz >1 star reviews on gearbest

2017-10-06 19:54:43 UTC

laffin

2017-10-06 19:55:13 UTC

any 1 star review doesn't make it to the website, or they edit it to a 5 star review and remove any negative comments

2017-10-06 21:16:09 UTC

Still curious about these

2017-10-06 21:23:56 UTC

HelloEar Arc Earphone

2017-10-06 21:23:56 UTC

2017-10-06 21:25:41 UTC

"The technology of Gauguin is so complicated. You can’t imagine how difficult it is to print a perfect metal replica of the ear"

2017-10-06 21:26:09 UTC

"No, we don't know how it works"

2017-10-06 21:27:18 UTC

at least it looks somewhat original

2017-10-06 22:41:44 UTC

I just get shunted to the front page on the app

2017-10-06 22:55:30 UTC

try your pc

2017-10-06 23:04:11 UTC

@Windatica to be fair marketing and engineering may as well be different companies.

2017-10-07 03:33:01 UTC

@Tribit ew its just a singe BA

2017-10-07 03:41:10 UTC

anyone get the ZS6 in the psot yet?

2017-10-07 03:41:17 UTC

I got mine a couple of days ago

2017-10-07 03:41:36 UTC

i aint getting that pos anytime soon

2017-10-07 03:56:38 UTC

they aren't that bad

2017-10-07 03:57:25 UTC

they measure worse than the zs5

2017-10-07 03:57:30 UTC

which already measured horribly

2017-10-07 07:19:04 UTC

lol

2017-10-07 14:01:22 UTC

fancy

2017-10-07 14:03:18 UTC

Massdrop?

2017-10-07 14:03:31 UTC

If it's massscam then it seems like around 150$

2017-10-07 14:04:25 UTC

Yeah

2017-10-07 14:04:29 UTC

but they're by 1More

2017-10-07 14:07:17 UTC

The cable isn't even detachable

2017-10-07 14:09:18 UTC

1More made some quality IEMS though

2017-10-07 14:29:37 UTC

Massdrop is indeed like scam-tier garbage, right?

2017-10-07 14:36:34 UTC

Sometimes

2017-10-07 14:36:49 UTC

I ordered Sennheiser HD6XX for 200$ from them

2017-10-07 14:36:58 UTC

That was a decent price tbh

2017-10-07 14:37:11 UTC

Nothing special, but still lower than normal

2017-10-07 14:37:14 UTC

It all seems too good to be true.

2017-10-07 14:37:24 UTC

The stuff that isn't known name brand I mean.

2017-10-07 14:37:38 UTC

Ah then yeah

2017-10-07 14:37:45 UTC

Most of the stuff is cheaper on Ali

2017-10-07 14:38:16 UTC

@Arcbat they're not scam tier, they had some great deals in the past. These days they just rebadge chink shit as exclusives

2017-10-07 14:38:24 UTC

like different coloured shell VE Monks

2017-10-07 14:38:50 UTC

toothpick crossbows

2017-10-07 14:39:20 UTC

And often good brand stuff is sold cheaper on amazon

2017-10-07 14:39:37 UTC

Good stuff comes rarely nowadays

2017-10-07 14:40:18 UTC

massdrop is a scam

2017-10-07 14:40:22 UTC

"muh exclusives"

2017-10-07 14:40:31 UTC

just come out and say that you're an edgy design firm

2017-10-07 14:40:59 UTC

>design

2017-10-07 14:41:23 UTC

Just come out and say you're a chink reseller

2017-10-07 14:43:22 UTC

There have been a lot more chink-resellers lately.

2017-10-07 14:43:28 UTC

Like in general.

2017-10-07 14:45:02 UTC

Because China started making good quality stuff for cheap

2017-10-07 14:52:33 UTC

Fuck. The chinks are winning.

2017-10-07 14:56:24 UTC

How to win at capitalism

2017-10-07 15:05:50 UTC

Be communist and by be communist I mean you pay your workers literally nothing and keep all the money?

Recommendations on over ear headphones that don't sound terrible but are comfortable for extended use?

2017-10-07 15:17:03 UTC

From what reviews I've seen posted the OneOdio Studio headphones are quite comfy

2017-10-07 15:28:00 UTC

I'll check em out

2017-10-07 15:42:35 UTC

@Arcbat Superlux 662 EVO after solderdude/frans' mods

2017-10-08 01:31:41 UTC

Im using HD668b, sounds good and pretty comfy

2017-10-08 01:31:57 UTC

Most people replace the pad though

2017-10-08 09:08:45 UTC

wew bidding on some cheap ety hf5's

2017-10-08 09:09:00 UTC

also got a bunch of cheap ass iems to measure

2017-10-08 09:09:04 UTC

including both fonge memes

2017-10-08 12:13:14 UTC

reeeeeeee KZ HDS1 were discontinued

2017-10-08 12:13:24 UTC

lasted me close to 2 years

2017-10-08 12:13:39 UTC

any similar?

2017-10-08 12:31:04 UTC

they seem to measure pretty similarly to memt x5's

2017-10-08 12:31:07 UTC

so i'd recc those

2017-10-08 12:31:37 UTC

memt more like meme

2017-10-08 12:31:52 UTC

yee

2017-10-08 12:31:54 UTC

issa good iem tho

2017-10-08 12:32:04 UTC

my go to rec for a warm cheapo iem

2017-10-08 12:33:22 UTC

better than meme zs5

2017-10-08 12:33:24 UTC

??

2017-10-08 12:33:48 UTC

sure measures better

2017-10-08 12:33:59 UTC

technicality wise i dunno

2017-10-08 12:34:10 UTC

im not getting a zs5 until it gets really cheap

2017-10-08 12:34:23 UTC

like sub $10 on gb or whatever

2017-10-08 12:34:28 UTC

if it's cheap it's probably v2

2017-10-08 12:34:37 UTC

yeah

2017-10-08 12:34:48 UTC

no real point having the v1 though since nobody can get it

2017-10-08 12:34:58 UTC

i guess i could simulate it by desoldering one of the BA's though lol

2017-10-08 12:35:51 UTC

I've stopped recommending it to normies at my school cause of the v2

2017-10-08 16:15:19 UTC

too bad too cause I daily the v1 and they're easily my favorite iem

2017-10-08 16:15:52 UTC

they're only rivaled by my creative aurvana lives and my defunct hd 668b, and without the comply tips they're uncomfortable

2017-10-08 18:26:58 UTC

Superlux is great unless you are a bass fag

2017-10-08 18:27:05 UTC

Cuz if you are you will be disappointed

2017-10-08 21:16:44 UTC

Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo, dont have your discussion here.

2017-10-08 21:16:50 UTC

2017-10-08 21:16:58 UTC

😭

2017-10-08 21:27:04 UTC
