Sennheiser HD518 Over ear Headphone
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Flat sounding across the board. Great low cost reference set. 07/10/2016

This review is from: Sennheiser HD518 Over ear Headphone

Pros: Turn off the EQ and crank them up with no harshness in any frequency. Cheap, light and comfortable with a good kick across the spectrum. Outstanding bang for the buck set.

Cons: Proprietary plug on the phone side.

Other Thoughts: If you are looking for a set of headphones and see these under 50 bucks, its a no brainer. Good for gaming and music.

Creative Sound Blaster Zx 116 dB PCIe Gaming Sound Card with 600ohm Headphone Amp and Desktop Audio Control Module
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Finicky drivers that could be more stable but well worth the effort for the sound you get. 07/10/2016

This review is from: Creative Sound Blaster Zx 116 dB PCIe Gaming Sound Card with 600ohm Headphone Amp and Desktop Audio Control Module

Pros: Well built and sounds great. The capacitors used in the ZX seem to be a step above what is used in the Z. FAR better than the on board Recon 3Di in my Area 51 R2. The software is great with a nice 10 band equalizer and other odds and ends. With a fair set of headphones or speakers and some good music files, this will blow your hair back.

Cons: Drivers and configuration issues. Some crashing. Might need to fiddle with it and try some slot swapping to get going. Not worth an egg though. Its so worth it if you love HiFi music.
Can't put it in a laptop.

Other Thoughts: I will probably never get the headphone breakout jacks out of the box. The ZX is not the same card as the Z. I think its worth the extra cash for the high end caps alone. Plus you get all the cords and other extras that you may need someday. Sound cards have been a pain in the *** since the beginning of time. DACs are the way of the future and this will be my last sound card anyway.

SanDisk 128GB Extreme Pro CZ88 USB 3.0 Flash Drive, Speed Up to 260MB/s (SDCZ88-128G-G46)
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Sandisk. I have lots of Sandisk stuff and never a failure. That's why I have lots. This is a great mix of size (GB), performance and price. Lifetime warranty. Busy light and metal construction.

Cons: It is a bit clunky in physical size.

Other Thoughts: You could get faster, bigger (GB) , smaller drives but they will cost you. I use mine in a DVR and it catches 1080P without a glitch. I first tried a 256 GB thumb drive that was a bit slower and it couldn't cut it.
