    1MORE Triple Driver BT In-Ear Headphones

    I'm with you on keeping the controls separate. However, if they have to be "combined", it's extremely important that the buttons are clicky and of good quality. Luckily, that's exactly the case with the 1MORE Triple Driver BT In-Ears.

    Requesting feedback for headphone reviews

    Just a quick poll for you guys, or at least those who read our headphone reviews :) I was wondering what are your thoughts on the Spotify song samples in the audio performance section of my headphone reviews. I'm talking about this...

    Sennheiser HD 660 S

    [page=Introduction] Introduction One of the first lessons you learn after diving into the world of hi-fi audio is that no pair of speakers or headphones can ever be declared as the best. Even if you're rich (or mad) enough to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on your audio setup...

    Sennheiser GSP 500

    I suppose you could argue that it's not a con per say, as it's like that "by design", however I feel it needs to be pointed out, as some readers won't read what I wrote about the open-back concept and won't even think that sound leakage could be an issue. I didn't really take it into account...

    Sennheiser GSP 500

    [page=Introduction] Introduction Sennheiser released two new gaming headsets in 2018—the GSP 600 (reviewed here) and, shortly afterwards, its open-back twin brother dubbed the GSP 500, which I'll talk about in this review. They serve as replacements for the famous Game Zero and Game One...

    SteelSeries Arctis Pro + GameDAC

    Yeah, you should be able to do that. The Arctis Pro comes with an adapter that turns its "USB" plug to a 3.5-mm 4-pole TRRS plug, like the one sitting above the headset on this photo I made: All you then have to do is get a 4-pole TRRS-to-dual 3-pole-TRS 3.5-mm adapter (like this one) and...

    Sennheiser Game One

    Afraid not, as Sennheiser replaced the Game One/Game Zero with the GSP 600 (reviewed here) and GSP 500 (review coming soon). That's why obtaining a sample of the Game Zero from them isn't possible anymore.

    SteelSeries Arctis Pro + GameDAC

    Hey, sorry for the late reply, somehow I missed your post :( The "regular" Arctis Pro (without the GameDAC) comes with its own sound card so you'll be able to use it without any issues. You'll simply plug it into any free USB port.

    Corsair HS70 Wireless 7.1

    Thank you for your kind words, I'm so happy to hear that you like my work! Corsair was, of course, contacted regarding the issue :) Additional samples have been sent to me as a result of that. The final sample, the one that eventually became the retail one (that's the one I reviewed), was by...

    Corsair HS70 Wireless 7.1

    No, I went through a grand total of three samples, just to make sure. I checked a couple of other HS70 Wireless reviews and nobody mentions the hissing, which only goes to show that it isn't easy to pick up (but it's definitely there). For a user that's not super sensitive to stuff like that, it...

    Corsair HS70 Wireless 7.1

    [page=Introduction] Introduction The Corsair HS70 Wireless is the newest addition to the company's gaming headset lineup. If you're unfamiliar with the HS series of Corsair's headsets, you'll be interested to find out that they are meant for gamers whose budgets are too tight to consider...

    HyperX Cloud Flight

    [page=Introduction] Introduction In a long line of excellent gaming headsets made by HyperX, there was one thing missing—a wireless model. We can only speculate on why it took them so long to release it, but the good news is that they finally have. It's called the HyperX Cloud Flight, and...

    Sennheiser GSP 600

    The GSP 600 would seem a bit louder, because of its closed-back nature. But it has a slightly different sound signature for that very reason as well. It sounds more "dramatic", while the GSP 500 is more natural of the two. If I was in your place, I'd give the GSP 500 a bit more time - once you...

    Sennheiser GSP 600

    Strix Soar should be more than powerful enough to drive the GSP 500. Their impedance is only 28 Ω. Here's a silly question - did you turn the volume up on the headphones themselves, not only in Windows? The volume knob could be easy to miss, as it looks like an integral part of the headset's...

    Sennheiser GSP 600

    Let's put it this way, how good is your sound card? If it's good (no noise on the microphone input, good sound performance on the output), you should pick between the GSP 500 and GSP 600. If it's not good, get the Arctis Pro, as it comes with its own external sound card. I can help you with...

    HyperX Cloud Alpha

    That's quite odd, your impressions are completely out of line with mine. I actually kept the Cloud Alphas and went to listen to them again just now, to hear them again long after my review and see if my impressions changed. They didn't. If I was writing the review today, I'd describe their sound...
