Phiaton Moderna Series MS 400 3.5mm/ 6.3mm Connector Circumaural Headphone
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Heavy, heavy bass, very rich and detailed, especially for cans with such great portability. Mids are great, but can get drowned out a little by the bass, although the bass really helps to enhance the lower mids. Treble is present and accounted for, it does not stick out very much, as most of your attention is drawn to the mids and bass, but when it comes up, the treble is very good. Overall, the sound quality is fantastic, about as good as I have ever heard in a portable headphone. The leatherette earpads and band are extremely comfortable, offering amazing isolation while keeping your ears cool.

Cons: The plastic material used for the headphone does not warrant a ton of confidence, but it is much better than Beats. The bass can get a little out of hand, but with a bit of EQ that can get cleaned right up.

Other Thoughts: These are right in the same category as Beats by Dre. They are portable headphones just over $200, with a very flashy design (personally I love the look). They are a basshead's dream; again why they are in competition with Beats, but that is not to say they aren't great all around headphones. The carbon fiber on the ear cups is a great aesthetic touch. Also remember that these are meant to be portable headphones, so they fold up very nicely into their included carrying case, and they are driven quite easily directly from a source (iPod, Zune, computer, etc.), but amping them does help. Anyway, if your are thinking about getting some Beats, stop immediately and buy these instead. Also, if you just like your music to sound great, again, buy these. I can't recommend these headphones heavily enough. And, oh yeah, buy them.

ASUS P6X58D Premium LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

4 out of 5 eggs A few itty bitty issues 08/18/2010

This review is from: ASUS P6X58D Premium LGA 1366 Intel X58 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: This is a fantastic motherboard, it has a huge amount of overclocking options, as well as a fairly decent overclocking software (although IMO software overclocking will never match BIOS overclocking). It is a ridiculously stable motherboard.

Cons: My first one would lock up after about 1 minute of anything, and I could not run MemTest or even install Windows. It had to be RMAed, but this is such a great motherboard, I only took off one egg. Also, this motherboard stopped me from buying a second GTX 470 for SLI. With the 470's high temps, you cannot put them side by side on air, but you would need an eighth expansion slot to utilize the third PCI Express 2.0 slot on this board, since the heatsink already takes up the first expansion slot. I don't see why they could not have moved the PCI Express 2.0s up one slot and everything else down one slot. This issue effectively stops anyone from using Tri-SLI unless they have eight expansion slots, which very few people do. It's just hard for me to wrap my head around why that they would make the bottom half of the third video card actually require an eighth expansion slot, when those are as uncommon as they are.

Other Thoughts: I feel that this is a great board, and the PCI slot placement issue was a big lapse in judgement by ASUS, if they had either shortened their (massive) heatsink, or moved the slots around, it could have been easily avoided. Also the RMA issue was not a big deal for me, since NewEgg has the greatest customer service ANYWHERE.
