Get the H3. For $90 more you are getting much much better sound.

 

Except I paid $80 for the H1s :D

Not a sale (deal) per say, but the Blox BE5 is back in stock for $95 shipped.

 

I bought one from the "first batch" and they sound like the GR07BE without the isolation and prone to sibilance.

These are my only higher end pair of earbuds so I cannot compare to the likes of other Blox or Yuin pairs.

 

I also use Yurbud covers http://yurbuds.com/products/enhancers/

$10 for 2 pairs

 

These covers help with comfort, bass improvements, and keeps them on the ear from tugs.

 

EDIT: I clicked refresh on the Blox site and they just got out of stock.

How low is this price in the grand scheme of things (compared with other prices this keyboard has sold at, and the average price for a mechanical keyboard)?

It's probably an averageish sale price, good in general for a mechanical keyboard which run from as far as I know 35$-$300ish.

Its a fairly low but not amazing price for a well recommended keyboard. To put it into perspective it'll be like having the M50's on sale for $95. I would have gotten one to replace my crappy monoprice mech if it weren't for the switches (I like blue) and it being ten-keyless

Why are people getting into mechanical keyboards? What's the difference to non-mechanical? Marketing hype?

Funny comment considering how esoteric this site is.

 

The only thing they offer is a better typing experience. Spending 50-100$ on a better typing experience pays off if you find yourself on a desktop or typing a lot. ( Even if the experience is only marginally better )

 

Kind of like paying for a comfy chair if you sit a lot. ^^

 

The crisp clicks and tactile feedback make typing more enjoyable ( More like less unpleasant I guess )

If you get one go for the blues.

 

First one I got had brown switches, while nicer than normal keyboards they just lack the satisfying feedback that blues give you. ( They are a lot 'crunchier' )

I love my MX Cherry Reds personally. The Blues are a bit too 'clicky' for my taste... Especially with headphones on.

You know, "funny" thing is that many public schools are dropping keyboarding from the curriculum.

I remember being really frustrated that I could only get up to about 70-80 words per minute, now... People of all ages touch laptop screens (I literally had a dad touch a laptop screen 45 seconds after I'd just explained to his 7 year-old son that you have to use the trackpad) and desktop screens as if it would be comfortable to keep your arm up in the air all day, and many people are impressed that I can pseudo two-hand touch type on an iPad screen from muscle memory.

Oh, and uuuuuuh... The AKG K612 is a major value, Razerdog may still have the coupon code K612PRO valid to get one for $165?

reds FTW!!

I gotta say since this is a headphone forum, you can get damper rings that prevent the key from bottoming out and making as much noise

For the person that asked about the difference, if you ever used a really old computer with a huge tan/white keyboard that was really loud, these are essentially those. Although they are quieter and easier to press now of course (depending on the switch I guess, google cherry MX switches and there should be a good comparison). A normal keyboard now has a rubber membrane that acts as a spring sort of while mechanicals have actual springs in each key and metal strips that touch to complete a circuit.

Reds = Terrible for typing/coding. Great for gaming.

Blues = Absolutely the best for typing. Bad for gaming.

Browns = Middle ground for typing and gaming.

Blacks = Gaming oriented, but harder to press than reds, most people prefer reds for gaming.
