I think I've just found one of mine (I've heard the album plenty of times but never through headphones).

I've been meaning to put together a stanbdardized list.  For now, I have a few albums that I've listened to a LOT over the years, which I ripped to FLAC for testing:  Shpongle "Are You Shpongled?" is one of my all-time favorite albums and it's great for testing detail because the music is so layered; detailed headphones bring out sounds you didn't even know were there. Bonobo "Days to Come" (picked for familiarity) and Hiromi's Sonicbloom "Beyond Standard" (jazz!!!) are two of the others.  I need to find one or two more that have more variety.

Eizo Foris FS2333.

 

Nuff said.

 

I was using a 24" LED Syncmaster too and this is an awesome IPS gaming display. World's first possibly. 5 years warranty.

Hi guys, watching the COD Chanpionship last weekend, all the players where wearing IEM headphones, underneath their Astro headphones used for the mic.

Mad only reviewed one set of IEM, why are those guys all using IEM, except for sound isolation?

Any positioning advantages in FPS using IEM?

Any particular brands better than other?

Thanks

Alternatively, you can get a cheaper LG IPS234V-PN. It should perform similarly. There's some solid info in this slickdeals thread.

Yeah, well he didn't say if there was a budget. I think the price for the one I suggested is reasonable though.

$400 for a 23" IPS is robbery. You can get a Dell U2312HM for under $200 on Amazon right now.

Or pay $400 for a 30" IPS from Monoprice.

I respectfully disagree, sorry.

 

The one you posted is great but I took 2 issues with it when choosing between the two - 1] no HDMI input 2] recent Amazon offerings have a yellow hue [all of them...]

 

Luckily Dell offers 5 year warranty and zero dead pixel guarantee! Oh, wait...

 

I spent a lot of time comparing many different screens but found the Eizo one the best performer albeit at at a premium price.

The first issue is solved with a HDMI to DVI adapter. The second issue is news to me and I'd probably retract the recommendation depending on how severe the problem is.

Seems hit or miss. Doesn't seem to be every one anymore but it's best to be careful about that sort of thing.

I went with the one I chose because it did magnificently in all performance and build quality tests and it does offer a 5 year warranty. Eizo is a renowned company, although not too recognized in the States and elsewhere

The price is justified IMO, but YMMV.

This website pretty much has everything you should need :] Both the monitors that we referenced are there and much more... I made my [to me right] decision based on it.

Since I PC game mainly, I wouldn't hesitate to get a 16:10 monitor. With a PS4, I would steer towards a 1080p monitor to avoid any conflicts that may occur due to scaling. I'm pretty sure the U2412M doesn't have 1:1 scaling and will stretch the image to fit the screen when the source isn't in a 16:10 compatible resolution.
