  1. Yesterday
  2. Yep we modded it. Also, for anyone who's interested, the manufacturer sent us the following: Enjoy!
  3. https://aphnetworks.com/reviews/sansi-c440-fw Review is up! Just a normal power cable for a PC. We cut up the plug so we can directly plug the security light in any wall socket.
  4. Don't need to dig, here it is https://aphnetworks.com/reviews/adata-xpg-sx8200-pro-512gb
  5. Last week
  6. Looks like a great price for some good earphones - cool to hear about your experience!
  7. I'm confused isn't SilverStone using standard ARGB as the mobo signals?
  8. Fractal Design does RGB? What a age we live in.
  9. Today is the day for those who know where to look.
  10. I think a mobile site and nicer graphics is nice - not this one is bad but all the latest news sites are laid out in a similar way. See https://www.forbes.com
  11. Looks like they're catching up but it's probably best if they stopped using sleeve bearing fans.
  12. 😛 Where does it say that? Also thanks for the detailed review - nice pics.
  13. $80 on Amazon is quite a deal if this is good.
  14. I’ll do a better post covering more aspects after I use them for a week or so. So far, on first full charge, I have 3-4 hrs on it and the micro sized iPhone display last night showed a little more than 50%. As for the SE215, my wife has the wired version which I like a lot. I didn’t want to change her eartips so my fit was just ok, but I realized they’d be even better with a tighter fit. But, ya, the sound felt fairly well balanced from bass to treble, clear, crisp, good depth. But, their gen1 Bluetooth does not support AAC and I’m an old iPhone user so aptX does me no good. But that’s for another discussion. The Shure gen2 Bluetooth does support AAC but costs $50 more and worse is that it’s a terrible design with a large clip on pod - classic dongle rather than sleek modern miniturization. I have been using my older earphones with a mini Bluetooth receiver smaller than the Shure’s dongle which taught me that the clip on design can be a hassle with thin quick dry type T-shirt’s. It’s always falling off and dangling during workouts, I find it also works it’s way off waist bands and ends up dangling. I was actually looking to buy the SE215 wired and then get a 3rd party mmcx compatible cable. I saw Fiio, with AAC, and Mee, unsure but think it has AAC, at attractive prices. Then by happenstance I ran into westone mentioned somewhere so checked out their website and saw the Wx on closeout pricing. IPX 4 which is minimal but ok for me. Confirmed with their tech support it does support AAC and is being closed out as they convert the W series to include both wired and Bluetooth cables but prices jump up well beyond my budget. He said only benefit of new BT is ver 5, more range and longer battery life, and maybe improved tactile buttons, but for AAC devices, no audio improvement. Since range and battery life are not big issues for me, it seemed like a good opportunity to get something that meets my needs and preferences at a good price.
  15. Dang that's unfortunate, would have expected better as well. In a somewhat related note, I am starting to get annoyed with how many different implementations of RGB there are, between motherboard manufacturers, companies who make accessories, and even having both RGB and A-RGB headers. But it also reminded me of this:
  16. Some Fractal fans came in recently, but I'm looking forward to see what comes next too. Should be some nice stuff lined up from what I know of
  17. Haha we definitely are a bit behind, but we're working on it! I'm really open to hearing what you guys say in terms of possible changes in terms of page layout. What are some things on the front page you like, and what do you think can be improved upon? Feel free to sound off!
  18. Thanks for the review! Those are some pretty good numbers.
  19. Yep, I think the fact I even saw an improvement is pretty good. LOL Noctua does recommend not using this on your body though
  20. Interested to see where you're going to be testing this, haha!
  21. Nice to hear you found a set that works for you! What is battery life like on the Wx? Also curious, what kept you from looking at the Shure SE215 Bluetooth?
  22. I found very few reviews of the Wx - I think headfi, headfonics and majorhifi were the only ones, mostly positive. Amazon users I take with a grain of salt since too many complain about non-relevant issues or some aspect of user errors. For any of the negatives, I can only say I agree the wires to the control pods are somewhat thin and might benefit from maybe a 2" flexible/bendable earloop section, but wearing glasses, I can hardly feel these wires which I like. The control pod could be a tad lower or further from the earpiece, but its not a big deal at least for me, and the complaint about the + & - buttons is valid, they could be more prominently tactile like the center button, but then knowing the + is above the center and the - is below works for me. Complaints about range are probably due to interference. I had no problems in the pockets of my shorts and I know I got about 20 ft through walls around the house - one location in my computer room did give me some hiccups which I suspect is interference from all the wireless devices I have in the room. From my family room table, it was fine when I was moving about the house and through a couple of walls. My initial impression of the Wx is they are a steal at $99 US. They came partially charged so I was able to immediately pair with my iphone - no problems encountered. Fit was just so-so with the preinstalled silicone tips, but I was anxious to listen so I fired up a jazz playlist while I was prepping dinner and it was definitely eye opening compared to my el-cheapo bt earphones. I charged them fully overnight and changed to foam tips that fit much better and seal outside sounds much better. They immediately connect to my iphone upon turning them on and the battery headphone indicators shows on the display. I'm thrilled they feel like they offer a relatively flat response - to my aging ears at least - I can't actually check test signals on them so its my interpretation and I've had only limited exposure to any earphones, let alone bluetooth. I got a feeling some younger than I would find the bass end lacking, but I got zero heavy bass music to try - although I do have some fitness tracks geared for cardio workouts I'll try out tomorrow. Today, I've listened to Adele, Enya, Sarah McLachlen, Leonard Cohen, Crosby Stills and Nash, Al DiMeola, Kitaro, Govi, Pink Floyd and Jethro Tull so far - no complaints and I know some of these I ripped a decade ago as 128bit mp3. Right now I'm listening to Eliot Fisk (classical guitar). I find they are so comfortable and sound so good, I just want to listen to more and more. Clean, clear, crisp, good separation, and a touch of warmth. I've kept the volume between 1/4 and 1/2 give or take with a few brief excursions to 3/4 just to enjoy the clarity. I'll do a better post on my audio impressions with some photos after I give them some time.
  23. Cutting up wires to convert it to a 3 prong plug was a fun project
  24. That's a nice set. Great price, too. For a fraction of the price of the Katana (which I am using with my other system), I think this looks like an attractive budget option.
