    Comparably sized PC speakers to replace my Edifier E25HD?

    I've had my Edifier E25HD speakers for 5 years but unfortunately the left speaker has started to distort so I guess it's time to look for a replacement.

    How can I improve Sennheiser HD 599 SE's imaging (for competitive shooter games)

    Hello good people. So I’ve had these for well over two years but I feel even entry level “gaming headphones” give better sense of direction in competitive shooters. Is this something that can be tweaked by playing around with EQ settings and/or getting a dedicated audio interface? I’ve tried...

    Best Summit-Fi Headphones for PC Gaming?

    Hi all, I am on the hunt for a pair of endgame audiophile gaming headphones. Most of the places I looked, I see people say Sennheiser HD800S is the best for gaming as it has the widest artificial soundstage. I did own a pair of that and didn't quite like them as much compared to my Meze...
