    Nope, not that much into audio yet :P

    The sound is good & solid in my opinion, right amount of bass, very comfortable.

    Looks neat!

    I'm surprised you actually made cable management on a server "room" o.o

    You can come do mine anyday, no matter how hard I try, it always ends up in a mess. Same way with my room.

    i have them, they do work, the problem is getting around to wearing them, most of the time i don't put them on until im 10 pages into a 50 page document

    the coloring doesn't matter because you still see white as white, even when it's tinted yellow

    What's great about opinions, is that everyone are allowed to havethem.
    Mine differs. I call placebo. They work. A little. But not more than reducing brightness levels (why ever have higher than 10-20%?). But they still make things yellow.

    Just moved. Since last post I have several new items.

    1) Asus 278HE 144hz monitor in the center
    2) AKG 701 headset
    3) Fiio E17 DAC/AMP(the little thing right in front of the mic)
    4) Blue Yeti mic

    Overall I'm extremely happy with my purchases!

    Yeah I personally shove monitors down to the lowest brightness, because otherwise, especially on white pages, they get obnoxiously bright, especially LED backlit monitors. (I am saddened to see LED backlit displays are shooting off.) Then I think I'll have contrast around 50 or something. It looks good, doesn't kill my eyes, but my LED backlit (the Acer S211HL) still murders my eyes, so I do my internet browsing almost 100% on the Gateway LCD 1680x1050 display. :P

    Technically they are headphones, but NICE assortment here! AKG is definitely amongst the best in audio!

    your ability to see colors even when wearing tinted glasses is not an opinion though, it's fact, and an old one at that, the next time you wear colored glasses, look at a white piece of paper and ask yourself why it is white

    and there is a slight magnification with gunnars as well, so don't drive with them

    True that, it's my first set of headphones in a very long time. Old habits die hard?

    the LED backlit display in my old netbook that I just sold murdered my eyes too. Most of the LED backlit TVs I see are painful on the eyes as well. Starting to not be a fan of LED backlights because almost no one does them well anymore.

    CCFL backlight in my U2711? Nice and cozy.

    Do you do a ton of voice recording or something?
