This review is from: KOSS UR20 3.5mm/ 6.3mm Connector Circumaural Stereophones
Pros: Sound, comfort, durability and lifespan.
Cons: They dont last FOREVER!
Other Thoughts: I bought a pair of these cans in 2001. They lasted through endless recording sessions during a 6 year period until the cushions coating began to deteriorate. The particles would end up in my ears so I had to say goodbye. It was a very sad day. If I would have cleaned them after every use, I bet they would have lasted another 6 years. I use a pair of Audio-Technica ATH-M50s's now, but when I saw the deal on these KOSS UR20's, I HAD to get them! Unless someone is a complete audio nerd (audiophile), these cans are THE best deal EVER! The performance/price ratio is INSANE!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: not doa XD
hopefully some soon--
Cons: stock fan is tiny and loud. my arctic cooler from my old system is compatible with am3 but the measurements wouldnt fit right without pressing against the ram--plus the fan would be blowing air into the psu :(
Other Thoughts: bought it as a combo with asus mobo and 8gb 1333--put my 4870 and audio card on it and fired up without a hitch--it took 14 minutes to install win7, whereas my old setup--xeon x3210 2.13ghz, gigabyte mobo, and 6gb 800 took 16 minutes--???READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Polk Audio Monitor 40 Black Two-way bookshelf loudspeaker Pair
Pros: I got them on sale with free shipping for less than 130 bucks!!! Pretty Sturdy. They sound good to me.
Cons: None so far.
Other Thoughts: I just got these literally about 2 hours ago before this post. At first listen, I was amazed at the bass but then realized I had my gaming system on (with 8" sub); oops! Turned that off and then I listened again-- They sounded OK but something was still wrong. There was too much mid. I then A/B'd them with my pair of 8" Behringer Truths and realized the Polks were out of phase! I hooked my left Polk up backwards. It was dark-- ahem. Finally, after everything was rectified, I took a listen and was impressed.
I record, mix, and master and wanted some normal bookshelf speakers for A/Bing and close monitoring and these do the trick. They are pretty tight. Nice clarity. They have a nice sloped off bass. I listen to and record mostly extreme styles of metal. e.g. Behemoth, Vader, Emperor, Satyricon, Dimmu Borgir, etc., etc. These are tailor made for those styles of music where you dont want or need a sub.
They look heavier than they are. I prefer front ports.
