So I have a pair of HD558's, and I'm not looking to replace them, but I would like a wireless option for when I need to get up and move around. I wouldn't use them for anything major (I'd still have the 558's for that), but they'd come in handy for things like voice chats or listening to podcasts. Anyone have a good option for wireless PC headphones for <$100? My PC has a bluetooth adapter so that's also an option.

HE560 sounds great but built like shit. Susvara is amazing but way overpriced, wait for it to drop. Sundara is good but I’d rather have an HE560. HEK and HEX are fucked, actually keked at that guy saying HEX is better than anything. If you’re looking into discontinued stuff HE6 is one of the best headphones ever made but is very difficult to drive. HE500 is very solid at its price.

>how are you running both a vega and linux-rt?
I'm not. I stopped using linux-rt for obvious reasons a couple weeks ago.
I'm hoping 4.16 or at least 4.17 will get the patchset. Linux-rt seems to skip every other release.
As to 4.14, it boots but for mysterious reason X doesn't work, not even using the builtin modesetting, which should work as the fb that was set up by efi is still present. I believe radeon fucks everything when it tries the card before giving up and letting modesetting do its thing. Anyway, between no -rt and no gfx accel, the former is more reasonable.
>are you manually merging the rt patches?
I'm just using Windows 10 a lot lately. Been playing nepnep re;birth 2 (waste of a vega...) and watching idol anime mostly, instead of being productive. Work's been hell lately, and whatever time I feel productive, I spend preparing for amazon certs work does need me to get (and I want to get regardless... since they pay).
Last time I booted Linux (yesterday to do some banking / gnucash / sysadmin crap) it put me on a bad mood. It corrupted textures randomly (in the webbrowser, making it a pita to use), like the RX380x did on the .0 mesa one or two releases before the current 2018 release. The last time I used Arch with the Vega it was mesa3d 17.x and at least it was stable. Sigh. A .1 release is due soon according to moronix. I also have the Gentoo (I have two / for arch and gentoo, with common /home, all LUKS'd), but that doesn't even have a 4.15+ kernel built yet, and I didn't feel like building one either.
My remote server is now updated to openbsd 6.3, my local rpi-based server to current archlinuxarm, gnucash books synced, and other misc crap done.
I'm hoping the corruption shit is fixed by next boot.
I have a laptop to my right I use as a terminal, w/openbsd. There I have a bunch of mosh sessions open with irc, rtorrent and other such crap. This is how I mostly survive even when main workstation is running Windows.

That's wrong. I don't come from Windows, but AmigaOS.
I didn't even use Windows at all outside of VMs until I wanted to play some ps2 games and on Linux that sucked. Before that, besides emulators and quake3/urbanterror/nwn I didn't even play games *at all*.
On my home workstation, Windows only runs about one third of the time. And this is currently the one and only machine I own or use which has an actual Windows install.

Well, the corruption crap is back with the current mesa in Arch. They broke it again, or never fixed it in the development tree, only the stable branch.
It was alright before the latest mesa release.

Well sound signature wise I really don't have anything to compare them with. Quality wise they held up great about two years. I replaced the cable after about 1 1/2 years and have yet to find a good replacement that lasts more than a few months. But I'm starting to run into issues with the buds them selves. The right ear bud has gone very quiet. And the left one did the same a month later. I've cleaned the contacts with alcohol and it made no difference. Maybe the mesh is clogged with ear wax or something but it looks fine. At like half volume I can hardly hear it, and full volume it is like comfortable volume for a quiet room. idk, I've yet to contact Sennhieser, but I've had them for 2 years so I doubt they would do anything.

You're completely full of shit.

Hifimans are dollaroo for dollaroo the best built, best sounding headphones on the market. Are there better options up above the $1,000 range? Fuck yeah. But you can get a pair of hifimans for under $200. That's insane value. Almost everything else in the price bracket is made of fucking plastic and sounds like mud compared to even very average planars.

Do you guys have desktop or hifi setups also? I love my headphones but it does leave some elements of music behind, namely the physicality of midbass hitting your chest with drums and just how your body feels. Also imaging and spaciousness, although I know open backs help with that a whole lot - the image is still kinda in your head.

this, women invariably are not happier being more independent and wage earners. they are promised that it makes it easier to find a partner but what it really does is shrink their list of possible mates. they become pickier whereas men don't care about a woman's wage. women are happy only with men that earn more than them because at the end of the day their biology determines they need to be with a dominant male who they can feel supported by.

M40X are pretty uncomfortable with the clamp issues and the shit ear pads, mostly the shit ear pads.
Never heard the M40X but I own an original M50 and can frankly say I hate them. Prefer much cheaper headphones to it.

Either way their comfort will be generally the same, so if you aren't planning on getting decent ear pads for them then good luck wearing your skull clamps for 30 minutes.

I just recently bought some cheap MSR7 pads and they're a great replacement, much better without coloring the sound.

Replace pads with MSR7 style replacement pads, ypu can get them pretty cheaply and they're a lot cozier. There's better options for comfort but they'll all screw with the sound more than the msr7 pads.
