Oh, same drivers for CAL2, interesting.

Still, I have heard unanimously that the CAL2 sounds worse, and has even more bass than the first. Considering the CAL was already bassy, not sure it's the way I would've went.

  Hi guys. I was wondering if someone knows off the top of your head if you can buy after market ear pads for K240 mkii's, I've tried searching but couldn't find anything relevant. I thought I'd ask here seeing how I already post in this thread and didn't want to start a thread over such a small thing, especially if someone here knows.

IIRC, try looking for K271 pads.

  hmmm same driver? Then whats the point of spending twice as much as for cal1 ?

Well I guess that would depend on where you live. In Canada the damn things are only $20 apart so for the better build and pads, plus I already have a CAL1 I figured what the hell.

Yah I can't see you enjoying them if they are even bassier.
 
I know Tyll has been brought up a lot as not liking them and I haven't been at this for a super long time but long enough I know I need to find out for myself. I could get them and they could very well suck, lol. But what the hell, that is what return policies are for.
Plus I have to see if the alpha pads fit just for fun! 
I wouldn't mind a tiny bit more bass but if I wanted super bass I would just order the JVC SZ2000. That headphone is apparently at the point of eardrum deafening. No thanks.

  Evshrug will you tell me the make and model of the asus monitor you are looking at..i might get a asus one..thanks!

see below
 
 
   
I have the overdrive set to off all the time and on the contrary, the Prad review says that the response time is fast even without it.
But suit yourself :]
 
About the Asus, their panels are somewhat unreliable [and I have to attest to that from personal experience] but if you get a good one, it's by no means slouchy,
Id look into the Dell U2412M and Asus PA238Q as worthy alternatives

I was looking at the Asus PA248Q, slightly less wide color gamut than the 23" you linked but it's an inch bigger and about $100 cheaper ($110 with rebate). However... what I came around to deciding is that 4k displays are going to get more affordable soon, models with NVIDIA G-Sync will come out, and IPS will continue maturing. I do want a monitor NOW, but I decided to go with the more modest Asus VS239H-P that only costs $160, and I can turn sideways to use as a second monitor once either a must-have new tech display comes out that my GTX660 can make good use with, or once I have clients/need for a professional 27" 4k monitor (which I'll probably want a new graphics card to drive). The VS239H-P ought to be very good with my PS4 and PC.

As long as your choice makes you happy

You know what makes me happy?



Image taken from google, lol.

Vornado 660.

Bought this on impulse, and because I was soooo sick of my huge box fan that barely pushes air and sounds obnoxiously loud.

This fan quite literally pushes so much air, its second lowest setting can be felt in the entire room, and is really quiet for a fan. The two highest settings sound like a normal fan, but the entire room is circulating air like the AC is on at all times. I'm blown away by how good it is.

I can't believe it's taken me this long to actively do my homework on good fans. I don't think I'll ever sweat again in my room.

You look different in that pic.
 
I want one!
 
Edit: BTW, I spotted the part about the pic being from Google but deliberately ignored it for the purpose of making the joke. It's the first thing I thought when I saw the picture

My AC is constantly on around 70-71, and my huge fan was on the mid-hi at all times. If it were quieter, I'd have put it on max, but the damn thing would drown out even good speakers. The Vornado is sooooo much cooler and quieter, and if I ever get hot, I have two more stronger settings, which really move air in the room. I literally have the fan aimed at a corner of the room, and feel the air as if the ac was coming from that corner of the room.
