I don't know of any way to do this. You can switch to your onboard graphics but I don't think you can completely power down your graphics card without entering the BIOS. You can usually get software to manually control the fan on your graphics card though. I do this when listening to music so it doesn't interfere with my open headphones. At 25% it's just about silent. I also use one of those self-contained water coolers for my CPU for the added performance and reduced noise.

Can't power my gfx fan lower than 40%, which is still way way too loud. I got the stock cooler, it is rubbish.

Should just be able to backup the "foobar2000" folder in your AppData folder and then overwrite the new one with your backup after you update.

Got any news to discuss, then I'm up for it.

No news here.. But perhaps it's time for a wishlist? What do we want from the next revision of the HE-500 - or the model that comes after? I'm thinking angled connectors, like the latest Audeze, and perhaps a little bit lower weight, if at all possible. The sound, though, is perfect as it is!

angled connectors, angled drivers, a bit thicker comfyer headband, less dust-attracting pads, and a bit more sturdy design? did i sum up what we all want guys or did i forget something?biggrin.gif

about the weight..well..most of weight comes from the drivers if i am not mistaken...so if u want lighter phone they have to use other drivers...and we dont want that..right? wink.gif

 

and going back to the question about what happened to this thread: well...i actually am liking it now...its not anymore about kicking each others asses about what we like... it now got a bit wider in interest..only the pc thingie got a bit offtopic biggrin.gif

 

maybe we can start a list of amps that we USE with our he500? and list our PERSONAL good and bad EXPERIENCES about that amp when used with the he500?AND BE HONEST!!! tongue.gif

as this could help newbies to choose the right amp for there budget...what u think guys?

ur so right davidsh..i am actually waiting for a pair...one very helpful fellow headfi'er is making a few jergmodded v2 pads for some of us unhandy people biggrin.gif hope to have my pair first week of augustredface.gif

i forgot something to improve on the he500: more open backsides of the cups...to open up the sound a bit more...as some of us did that already and it works i understand. wink.gif

u know me..i only talk about what i hear (with my ears)and personal experience..thats why i have all those debates sometimes with others biggrin.gif

 

but ofcourse i will do a honest PERSONAL opinion once i have them...jerg and some others are very enthousiastic about those pads..so i just had to try them! and now i will... wink.gif i only hope i wont **** up the plastic thingies behind the cups when placing the new pads..in the past i broke two on my he300..i think hifiman has to improve the pads attachment also!!! damn another improving point for the new he500/600 biggrin.gif
