    I got my headphones yesterday and I’m now looking for a new cable, the one that came with them could serve as the mooring line on the QEII.

    Hrmm B&H don't deliver outside of USA, this is a joke, paying almost $40 more for the local OEM Shure cable.

    Seriously? At least once a year I get a half inch thick catalogue from them, why would they send me that if they dint ship internationally. They’ve shipped to me in the past, is this a new thing?

    Edit: just went to their homepage and first line was shipping to Australia starting at $12.xx

    Just a Shure thing maybe.

    Amazon will ship to you though.

    Yeah it's Shure/Westone, they put up these geofences up so that the middlemen of Stralia can rape the citizens that little more. ASICS do the same for a while now. Such a dog's act.

    Go to amazon, I checked there and they’ll ship to Australia. I only looked at one, they were 215 cables and they shipped to Oz.

    Good luck.

    I found a left ear airpod today while walking home, is there anyway to reunite the owner or can it be used with someone else that has lost their matching airpod?

    There's a new HIfiman model just out in the wild, ANANDA, same specs as a HE-1000 V2 but $200usd cheaper.

    I ordered one coz I like the idea/shape of the AEON/HE-X/HE-K but couldn't find cheap enough.
    Passed on SR-007, SR-009 and Utopia.... new/used...for the time being

    I've been annoying all the HP sellers on Scambay with low-balling..:Pirate::Pirate::Pirate:

    Oh, 10% off until 14/06

    Go buy something

    Looking for a budget (<$80) headset to go with the new gaming PC I just built.
    Doesn't have to be fancy, and I'm happy to get a standalone microphone if it means I'm not losing out on audio quality bang for buck.
    Have previously had Sennheiser HD212's which I loved but alas they are gone now.

    hey guys

    Just wondering what recommendations someone might have for someone who wants something better than qc35's for gaming & music?

    I run the qc35's by bluetooth at the moment but can also plug into a dragonfly red usb I have connected to my main speakers.

    Can't go past Kingston HyperX Clouds in that price range.

    Kingston HyperX Cloud 2 are quite good for the price, I was lucky to pick mine up for $105. I'm not using the USB driver provided though, I have a 4 pole slitter (2 x male, 1 x female).

    Do they need to be wireless?
    If not, get Oppo PM3's.
