@boygenius1991 I got them last time they were up (for $96 I might add) They sound alright, but they constantly will drop signal and I have to unplug them or restart them. Not sure if it’s a regular occurrence or just mine.
I’ve been dying for meh to do another headphone deal, as I’ve managed to break one pair of 808s, lose another, and ripped those godawful Looney Tunes buds to shreds. I don’t really care about the mic, would this be a good Bluetooth over-ear for every day use? Ideally for audio isolation from weirdos on the train and at work?
@dcm714 I use them to shut out other people, and they work well for that. It becomes almost disorienting to no longer hear the noises around me that I know should be there. It’s not like the entire world goes silent, but it does get a lot quieter.
@dcm714 Do you like ear buds that go all the way in your ear? A decent set with comply foam tips added make a great seal. I have an old set of klipsch s4’s and shures’s that are decent and it’s like wearing ear plugs.
@techn9ne816 legit question: Is SteelSeries stuff any good? I’ve been sitting on a pair of mechanical keyboards that I picked up at an auction, a SteelSeries 7G and a Sades K10… I was intending on auctioning them (because I’m happy with my Logitech G510 even though it’s not mechanical) … but I got to looking at them, and I kind of want to try one out. The SteelSeries seems to not have a Windows key, though, which is pretty crappy for using it when not gaming… and the K10 LEDs look like a nightmare… lol
OTOH, I can’t actually list the SteelSeries at ebay because of some brand restriction BS.
@eblade They are amazing they are the top brand now and esports are using them. My buddy is sponsored by them and he gave me the m500 keyboard which is 100 bucks. Steelseries, now is the way to go. Razor dropped a lot.
I have a bit of a technical question, how does bluetooth have the bandwidth to handle 8 channels of high quality audio? If the source is 320Kbps-per-channel (times 8 it would be 2,560Kbps total), and bluetooth has a limit of 2Mbps (2,048Kbps?), so how does that work?
I hope the Big Meh Man will put something up that’s nice at a killer price, one per customer, As a way of saying thanks, and our way of saying thanks is to buy it. Maybe this is the deal, although someone said this deal was up once before. I’ll wait for a few more reviews before judging.
I’m also not a huge fan of Turtle Beach, they’re pretty close to the bottom of the barrel… they usually break within the first 6 months or so and their CS reps are what some might colloquially refer to as “dicks.”
@Chops I can concur with the Turtle Beach breaking as I have gone through about eight sets I have bought off of woot. Am I allowed to use that word here, meh? Anyway I just broke another pair and it is always in the same place too. I managed to tape, glue, screw, brace them for another few weeks until they break again. But meh is always one step behind, I already bought another headset from another site and just received them on my doorstep this morning for me to try when I get hone tonight.
@Chops lol. my step son and his friends insist that Turtle Beach is high quality stuff. I’m just thinking… unless the world has gone completely off the deep end, Turtle Beach stuff has historically been ass garbage.
So, I don’t really want 'em, but I decided to read the manual anyway to see what people were fucking up and ahh… yeah I dunno. The basic setup all looks pretty standard to me. The most I’d say you need to take a look at is the diagram of what all the buttons 'n shit do. Only thing I can see that gets a bit complicated is if you want to connect multiple devices at the same time but at that point if you’re not at least checking the instructions you deserve to fail.
Hey meh, got these last time @ $94, so fuck you! I guess I’m a sucker and a stupid fuck to boot! You owe me a refund on the difference which I’m sure you won’t do…
If you have any integrity as a company you will refund me $19, and I will sing your praises far and wide
@robson you’ll probably get a refund for the difference, on your death bed.
they’ll give it to some other deal you backed out of, like a magazine subscription or your late fees at blockbuster.
which then you’ll have to go somewhere to file something in some office, in triplicate and
pay a $10 handling fee.
But you’ll only have a credit card, so that costs an
But you’ll go through with it because otherwise all the time you’ve already invested+ the gas, ink, stress of knowing you paid too much. they’ll send you the $4 check, but your identity will have been stilen from the transaction that took place, so you wont be able to deposit it.
Either way - you die with out that money.
Mehhhhhhhh… I’m tempted (7.1! That’s so many .1s! Two more than usual!) but there’s not a set of over-ear headphones I’ve tried that weren’t super uncomfortable to wear with glasses. It’s like anti-nerd prejudice or something, maaaaan.
I got these last time they were up (for $94 I might add). They sound great, when they’re working. Unfortunately they will regularly drop signal and just stop working. I then have to unplug the wireless hub and plug it back in to get them working again. The bluetooth is a bit more reliable, but has done the same thing. I do like that you can dual pair bluetooth. e.g. your phone and laptop. Makes it easy to switch between them. But unfortunately, they keep dropping sound and I don’t know if I would recommend purchasing them, unless it’s just my pair being buggy.
Ok, so I bought these for my 13 year old daughter and she was PSYCHED! Then she tells the mic sucks and gives them to me. I don’t know what the heck is up with the mic, but I found the mic to be awesome! I made tutorials using it and I spoke at my normal volume and they are all clear as a bell. It turned out that she was wearing them backwards (hello, there is an R and an L on each side!!) so she took them back. No report yet on whether she finds the microphone sufficient when wearing the set the right way…I’ll report back when she does. But F*CK ME, these headphones are AWESOME! Really kinda hoping that she still isn’t happy and gives them back to me!
