Carry your wallet and phone in your front pocket and don’t carry a lot of cash on you. There’s lots of pickpocketing there.

It's a fine case but the storage capacity isn't the best. Here's a case around that price range which I'd recommend.

I don't understand. What is there to be skeptical about? His actions online and in real life directly relate to his explanation in the manifesto.

The DT 990 PRO and HD 58X will have the best audio quality. The HyperX Cloud is a good gaming headset but not as good as a studio headphone like the above two. The HyperX Cloud and MH751 are based of the Takstar PRO 82 headphone and are quite similar. The Samson is an okay option if you're on a tight budget.

To rank them 1. DT 990 PRO 2. HD 58x 3. MH751/ HyperX 4. SR 850

Size shouldn't matter. I'd personally go for the violin since it will be more unique coming from a deep sounding instrument like the cello.

Cloud or Cloud 2. Stinger's not worth it since you can get the Cloud's for nearly the same price and the G430 is just trash.

The 559 is the newest version of the 558. Not much changed besides the aesthetic. I'd go for this pair unless you have to have something cheaper, then the Superlux isn't a bad option.

I had the original m50 which are very similar to the m50x. For most people it's not a bad choice..build and sound quality is good for the price range and category. If you don't like high notes/treble they might not be for you though. Comfort wasn't that great but it will probably be around m40x....

considering m40x is not far behind the m50x and <half the price I'd go with those. Pioneer hasn't made any good headphones in recent years.

363D/Game ZERO are based off the 380 PRO, I would avoid those. Game One's on the other hand are based off HD 558's and will be a much better headset.

Sennheiser HD 558. I wouldn't spend more than that if you're just gaming. If you want the convenience of a headset there's the GAME ONE for $100 more.

HD 650 require more time and money to get a nice setup. High quality music/audio (which a lot of games don't have), and an amp and dac to add to the costs. You won't have to worry about all that with a cheaper pair.

Koss KSC-75+ Sony EMCS3 mic. No headset in that price range is remotely good.

Good headphone but it needs a more powerful amp than that. Around $70 the monoprice desktop amp would be good.

If an amp is not in your budget the clouds are like a chesprr version of the 770 and should be fine with that adapter.

Seems pricey for what it is. Power wise it's as capable as an iPhone 5 and I would assume the DAC is similar. Sennheiser has a some great products but also a lot of stuff mediocre stuff for the mainstream.

After the Schiit Fulla 2 came out the original Fulla dropped to $59. Should work great with the Game ones.

What headphones? Take the 600ohm rating with a gain of salt. They do not publish the actual specs for a reason.

Also was it always like this or did it go quiet recently?

Don't even bother with 7.1 headsets. Some use software, other have multiple drivers, either way you are not getting anywhere close to surround sound done by actual speakers and a subwoofer since they present sound in a completely different way.

Play more until you are familiar with the game such as knowing champ selection, when to engage, placing wards, taking objectives, farming CS, etc...

Play every role and try to improve each game.

Also use unlocked camera and quick casting.

Is the freeze due to high ping? I'm playing on the latest client with Windows 10 and no in-game issues across my laptop and desktop.

My desktop has a 9800gtx+ which is at least ten years old and a Haswell i5 and it easily gets 60FPS on max settings at 1080p. The build xTwistts linked would be good but the graphics card isn't needed.

Again your PC is plenty for League so I would try to fix it instead of buying a new pc.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Best headphones between $300-$400?"

  • 32 months ago

Keep in mind the best audiophile headphones in that price range will easily reveal flaws in music/audio and are not designed to be plug and play. They need an amplifier to provide power to the headphones in order to perform as intended and a good DAC (digital to audio converter) for a distortion free and clear audio signal. Expect to spend an additional $250 if buying new for these added components (Schiit stack for example).

The headphones also produce sound differently and unless you can hear them in person the best you can do is read online reviews . Or for a better understanding, learning to interpret graphs of the headphone's measurements that show their technical performance.

So... if that sounds like something you wouldn't be interested in there's also the option of buying a cheaper headphone that will work well with all kinds of devices and file qualities. Around $100 Sennheiser's HD 558 is a good value and often are on sale at Bestbuy for $80. They have everything a gamer would need: comfort, spacious and detailed sound, good build quality, and a detachable cable.

If you're interested in the higher end audiophile setup it would be doable in your budget but you'd need to buy used components. There's not much that could go wrong with the amplfiier and DAC but the headphones might need replacement earpads.

If you want the best option get a pair of open back headphones with a mic. Sennheiser HD 558 goes on sale for $80 often at best buy but even for $100 it's a fair price.

Below that I'd only consider the m40x+mic and HyperX cloud from your list, the other headsets aren't worth it.

It's a DIY tube amplifier that pairs really well with headphones like the HD 650 because of its high output impedance, giving it a rich and vibrant sound. The speedball is an upgrade to the bottlehead crack amp that increases the fidelity and lowers the noise floor.

It's an awesome headphone amp comparable to amplifiers several times the price. Plus you can have fun with tube rolling to change up the sound.

Here's a picture

If you wait for a sale it comes to around $330.

From reviews they seem to have the same sound quality as the cloud but with better build. The 7.1 software isn't that great either. Leave that for high end sounscards.

Earbud style id look at ve monks from aliexpress . If you don't mind on ear and a bit higher price Koss ksc 75 blows it away.
