Are all the monitors curved or is it my imagination? Never liked the idea of a curved monitor - I like straight lines to be straight on the screen.


Jogindah t1_j348m54 wrote

they are indeed curved, once you get past a certain width of monitor (or combination of monitors) the edges get too far compared to the center, so the curve offsets that. You can get around this with multiple straight monitors by having them at an angle. I couldn't imagine have 3 straight monitors in a completely straight line, i feel like i would have to shuffle over to see the edges

enjoy my shitty paint drawing

I've been trying to complete a setup for both wired and wireless listening for both staying at my desk + moving around the apartment as well as when I'm out and about. My last addition has been the FiiO BTA30 Pro as Bluetooth on Windows has been an absolute trainwreck of an experience for me and no cheaper alternative existed. The only problem I'm still facing now is with the audio sometimes cutting out on silent passages - hoping it'll be solved by using an optical cable instead of USB, but it might genuinely be an unfixable thing I'll have to live with tied to how the Bluetooth codecs send audio... only works with LDAC which the Momentum 4s sadly don't support.


TagalogON t1_j329f2f wrote

That audio cutting out in silent passages is pretty much the norm with those receivers/transmitters combo units. FiiO confirmed, IIRC, it, like it was on the earlier BTA30 (non-Pro) thread or something on Head-Fi.

Check these threads: and

You basically have to play white noise or something, forgot now, to prevent the cutting out issue.

Look into the KB9P AptX Adaptive USB transmitter dongle, they're like $15-20 from AliExpress. It's not LDAC, but it's maybe the best Bluetooth transmitter available right now before those AptX Lossless dongles finally arrive.

This is the AptX Adaptive/AptX Lossless/etc. USB transmitter dongles (like KB9P, etc.) thread on Head-Fi, they talk about other Bluetooth stuff there too:

Here's more (direct) updated info about the AptX Adaptive USB transmitter dongles (KB8P, KB9P, YET-T10P):

Here's more info on TWS adapters like the FiiO UTWS3/5, KZ AZ09 Pro, etc. alongside adapters/converters, AptX Adaptive dongles (KB9P, YET-T10P, etc.), and so on needed for them: and

For latency, unfortunately it's just inherent Bluetooth tech limitations right now, see here for a bit more info:

Or ya actually recently some people are using LDAC through Windows 11 or so, check here:

The LDAC for Windows is supposedly from here, it's like in beta mode or something right now:

iWazzmatazz t1_j31s96i wrote

I am interested in BTA30 Pro trying to move up the ladder from aptX HD. Have you tried paring with M50xBT2 or XM5s to see how LDAC plays on other than Momentum 4s?


Velcorn OP t1_j320v4s wrote

Since the M4s don't support LDAC in the first place. However, I've used it with the Qudelix and the connection + quality has been great for me. Range has been much better than with my phone and worked in every corner of my apartment which isn't particularly big, but considering LDAC at 909 kbps it seems good to me.


iWazzmatazz t1_j321ctq wrote

So should I get BTA 30 Pro for my desktop set up seems your experience hasn’t been great with it?


Velcorn OP t1_j34cqew wrote

Sorry for the late response. Wanted to wait for the optical cable I ordered to see whether that works better than USB. However, when I went to try it, I couldn't reproduce the problem xD

I would say it depends on your use case. If you need/want LDAC, it's completely worth it. If it's just aptx (HD/LL/Adaptive), there might be better and/or cheaper options in the form of some dongles (see comment from another user regarding dongles).


rascaltwitch t1_j338h1n wrote

Using the BTA30 pro and Qudelix as well and my experience has been very similar. When connected via LDAC, it's almost always in 660kbps mode (as reported by the Qudelix app), so I'm currently experimenting with Aptx HD instead since it's often reported to use less battery.

edit: should note that my BTA30 pro is connected to a picoreplayer setup in case it's helpful to anyone else.


roenthomas t1_j3202b9 wrote

You don’t even need an external BT device if all you want is LDAC on Windows.


Velcorn OP t1_j320la3 wrote

I know, but like I said BT on Windows has been utterly horrible from the cans not connecting properly to incredibly poor range. It's just been so annoying to deal with that I was willing to invest into such a niche product.


Elessun t1_j34nm35 wrote

Not related to this sub but I thought I'd throw it in here.

If you have an Nvidia graphics card then give Nvidia surround a go. It's orders of magnitude better than Windows spanning for 3 monitors.

Similarly if you have an AMD card, EyeFinity works the same way, and again is way better than Windows' solution.

i got the official pads for like $70 cad, feels like a huge rip-off, but i'm not convinced on the 3rd-party pads that are any significant amount cheaper. really hoping someone knows a place in canada we can get 'm cheaper (for the 600)

Fuck the midfi cans OP, details on your monitors please!


Velcorn OP t1_j31vvfr wrote

Lmao, I'll update my main comment with the info, but to not let you wait, they're pretty basic AOC C24G1 1080p 144 Hz monitors. Unfortunately, all 3 of them have different color representation - I guess that's (one of) the main disadvantage(s) of VA panels. Doesn't really bother me as I don't do picture/video editing or gaming using multiple monitors; just a programmer that needs dedicated Google/StackOverflow screens.


Titouan_Charles t1_j31z0w4 wrote

You can try and calibrate those to a common standard, and see how they fare after that. Color calibration isn't just for photo and video producers, it makes the monitors much more enjoyable to use day to day


Velcorn OP t1_j320can wrote

Thanks for the hint, I might actually try that one day, but so far it really hasn't bothered me all too much.

I guess wallmounting isn't such a bad idea. I'll look into it. Already got a pretty big mousepad just removed it for the picture. Thanks for the comment.

Edit: I'm an idiot considering that I have a height adjustable desk, so wallmounting isn't an option xD

Yes, it's a good game. All jokes aside, I see no reason to have 1440p+ on 24 inch monitors and I don't feel the need for bigger monitors. Also at 27+ inch I'd have to get 1440p+ which is substantially more expensive when talking about a 3 monitor setup. AND you know where all my spare cash goes.

shadow144hz t1_j32b2rr wrote

I'd recommend you get either a 3 armed mount for your monitors or 2 mounts, one that holds 2 monitors and one that hold only one since the first option might have a really big clamp compared to the other two. Also I'd say buy a deskmat, how do you bare with using a mouse on wood, especially for gaming.


Velcorn OP t1_j32brse wrote

I had that before and didn't really like it - probably because it wasn't a particularly high quality mount. Out of the question now as I have cable organisers mounted under the desk, so I can't attach clamps there anymore - was also a mistake not to have them a bit more inward to allow for clamps at the back, but since I don't really need them, I'm fine like this.

I have a deskmat, just removed it because the picture looks better without it ^^'


shadow144hz t1_j32c9yq wrote

Oh, that makes sense. I'm also guessing your deskmat is black or just a dark colour and that's why you couldn't take a picture with it, right? Everything is black lol, we need more colourful stuff lol.


My_Little_Pony123 t1_j32gyyw wrote

Heard them separately but never side-by-side; could you be kind enough to compare the HD600 and the Sundara? The former, to me was champion of effortless, and the latter the balanced well rounded. TIA.


Velcorn OP t1_j331u72 wrote

They are definitely very different. I can mostly give you a comparison considereing both are EQ'd to the Harman target. What persists is the 600 being the neutral king with an intimate soundstage, i.e., narrow. Bass is obviously still rather lacking, but that doesn't bother me too much. The Sundara on the other hand feel more energetic, have much better instrumental separation due to the planar technology and a small to medium wider soundstage compared to the 600. To my ears, the Sundara have an artificial feel to them in their sound which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but it can feel fatiguing after a while. I switch between them pretty frequently but usually end up sticking with the 600 for longer periods of time, in part due to the more comfortable fit but also they are the better "allrounder" for me and generally feel better suited for daily use. The Sundara work really well for some intense listening sessions, especially with more energetic/electronic music, orchestral music and the like.

ProfessorWafflesPhD t1_j320rcu wrote

How do you like this Sennheiser momentum 4’s? Would you consider them to be good gaming headphones?


Velcorn OP t1_j321qeg wrote

I like them a lot. Sound is very nice especially coming from the XM4s and coupled with pretty good ANC they make for great cans when you're out and about. I'm still using wired more often than not when gaming, so wireless is mostly for online (work) meetings or activities where I move around the apartment more often. My main gripe would be software, i.e., you need the app to adjust ANC and the app takes ages to load into the settings which can be quite the annoyance. Other than that I haven't had (m)any issues with them aside from slightly unreliable touch controls for switching songs mostly.

The main problem might be BT connection with your PC/laptop. Whilst I have absolutely no issues with them on my MacBook (which comes with lack of codec support other than AAC of course), but Windows has been annoying enough to make me go for the FiiO BTA30 Pro.

Had one before that I didn't like as it was a pain in the ass to have them be the same height and adjusting the horizontal tilt. I'll probably stick with the stands until I feel like really spending on a proper mount. Wall would've been easier, but height-adjustable desk.


_4lyssa t1_j352baz wrote

In my experience it's super annoying to fix with it in the beginning, but the easiest thing is to just get a no bullshit desk mounted one with 3 mounts on the same bar, and then not have to deal with with separate arms; which is awful to no end. And then just tape them together in the seems when they are lined up. Works wonders.

Most wallmounted monitor arms are on one single bar, meaning they essentially work the same and have the same issues. But you won't have to deal with the height adjustable desk problems :)

Have them since mid October, so barely 3 months. The paint is in pristine condition, but just today I noticed the right bud sounding quieter than the left. Will try swapping the filter and praying.

Update: No idea what it was, but I tried switching to the stock cable, the issue disappeared, then went back to my Altea and the issue is still gone. Maybe it was a weird connection, but I already replugged the buds - now hoping that it doesn't come back.

Update 2: It came back, swapped the filter, everything's great again now.
