I don't use my HD600 as much as I use to do when I frequented this sub daily, but to this day, they are my favorite thing I own. Nothing has come close to how well my HD600s have served me. I've had countless headphones over the years, and nothing is even comparable to the HD600s. Every IEM I've ever owned has some finicky hardware or there's something about the sound I slightly dislike. Every other over ear I've owned either gets uncomfortable, breaks, or gets boring. Not the HD600: they're incredibly sturdy, sound amazing (albeit neutral), super comfortable, and reasonably priced. My single gripe with them after 4 years is I have some paint chipping, but that's mostly my fault from abuse. My love for them trumps everything I've ever bought, that's how almost perfect Sennheiser made these headphones.

If you're in the market for new headphones and are debating whether a Sennheiser HD6-- line headphone is worth the sticker price, don't be. This shit will pay for itself a million times over during its lifetime, and hold its value if you ever decide to down/upgrade.

Hello Reddit,

I made a post a few days ago asking about the best surround sound experience for gaming, and the GSX 1000 was recommended a lot; therefore, I bought one, but I ran into a couple problems.

Since I'm completely blind, I knew that the touchscreen interface would probably be difficult to navigate; however, I thought I might be able to remember where things are, but it seems to be a little less friendly than I thought it would be. However, I might be able to learn the interface better with more time. Another problem is that the device does not turn back on if I shut down my computer and turn the computer back on, but it starts working again once I unplug it and plug it back in. After doing some research, this seems to be somewhat of a common problem.

On my prior post, some people recommended products from Creative, but I think they use software to toggle the surround sound mode on and off, and I'm not sure if the software is going to work with my screen reader.

If there are any devices that are more accessible while having similar or better surround sound quality to the GSX 1000, please let me know. I appreciate all the suggestions.

Thanks.
