  • I do both but tend to go more for music or ambient noise / music when I'm working or studying. I just got the Legion H300 Stereo Gaming Headset and so far I like it. The mic is retractable which is awesome but I do which they added the foam piece to the end as I feel it tends to prevent random noises, like I can hear the cable when it bumps against the desk which is odd tho not bothersome. 

  • Definitely good feedback on the h300s! They actually sound great with a direct line connection. What kinds of artists/genres do you like to listen to, even in the ambient space?

  • what do you mean by direct line connection? Illustrate me, please.

    Ambience music can go from cafe sounds on a rainy afternoon, sounds from home (mainly the beach), lo-fi (pretty much whatever I run into first when I open YouTube. For specific artists it honestly comes down to my mood. I listen to a little bit of everything. Today's playlist has: Cultura Profética (spanish reggea), Ariana Grande, Queen, AC/DC, Juan Luis Guerra (bachata), Marc Anthony (salsa),  and soundtracks from video games (Fallout New Vegas and Zelda so far). 

  • I hope this isn't too much of a non sequitur: but hearing this about the H300s I may have to give em' a look come time to nab another pair of headphones. 

    Another hopefully-not-too-much-of-a-non-sequitur: *and so goes the train of thought by which I end up hoarding all sorts of various bits of technology in true WH40k Tech Priest fashion Laughing.*
