Philips SHP9500 Over-Ear Headphone Exclusive - Black

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs These cost how much? 05/31/2016

This review is from: Philips SHP9500 Over-Ear Headphone Exclusive - Black

Pros: Price - Got them on sale for $60

Sound - Excellent. Very neutral and clear. Bass is a little light, may improve with break in, but if you want extra bass off the bat they handle it well if you boost it a touch at the source.

Removable cord - always a plus

Cons: Comfort - Not really a con, but not good enough to be a pro. Pads feel kind of cheap, and at times I can actually feel the inside fabric vibrating. But there are guides for mods out there for the adventurous.

Cheap plastic - but hey, at $60 and that sound, they had to cut costs somewhere.

Other Thoughts: My "normal" set of headphones are a set of HiFiMan HE-400i's. Do the SHP9500s sound as good? Can't say they do. But then again, they're 1/5th the price.

I got these because I do a fair amount of travel. I have a set of Klipsch Status closed headphones for the actual travel, and for that they work well. Good sound isolation, comfortable, all that. But when I'm there? I'm stuck with a so-so set of closed cans (always preferred open headphones). Not wanting to risk the HiFiMans, I saw these on sale. And at $60, they're cheap enough I can toss in a suitcase and if they break in a year, so be it.

Pros: -Very fast, doesn't break a sweat in either multithreaded or single threaded applications

-Temps not terrible at stock clocks

-Onboard GPU isn't going to be running the latest and greatest games at 1080P and up, but decent enough to run older and simpler games as long as you don't expect much. But then again, I can say that about most current gen iGPUs.

Cons: Not worth deducting anything since overclocking is never guaranteed, but gets very hot very quickly when OCing. I have it under a Scythe Ninja 4 with a pair of Noctuas (mounted with Arctic MX-4)and I'm afraid to push it past 4.3-4.4ghz due to temps.

Other Thoughts: Mounted in a Gigabyte GA-Z170X-UD5 with 16gb 3000MHz Corsair Vengeance LPX

Silicon Power 32GB Blaze B05 USB 3.0 Flash Drive (SP032GBUF3B05V1K)

4 out of 5 eggs Decent cheap spares 04/01/2016

This review is from: Silicon Power 32GB Blaze B05 USB 3.0 Flash Drive (SP032GBUF3B05V1K)

Pros: After I accidently put a flash drive through the wash (still works, luckily) I decided to pick up a couple of spares. A few days later, these popped up on sale (~$6.75 each for 32GB USB3 drives? Worth a shot.)

For the price, read speeds are respectable, while write speeds are boringly average, but given the price I'm happy with that.

Aside from that, they're your basic flash drive. Plastic case, no lanyard, but thankfully a retractable USB port so no cap to lose.

Cons: The only downside? The warranty. Not only do you essentially sell your soul, but the registration page didn't even play nice with Firefox. But, for the price, shipping them in if they break would cost more than the drive itself, so they could have _no_ warranty and I wouldn't care.
