Was sad yesterday about my 3080 not having an ETA anymore but was able to score a Founders Edition today! Oct 28, 2020 at 3:36 PM

      Got in an order for a RTX 3080 back on launch date. Last week they said they might get in my unit next week. Checked today and no more ETA

        Hmm. So I have a GSync monitor with max refresh rate of 120. If the new AMD card can let me hit that 120, will Gsync matter? I honestly don't know how much impact it has had on my gaming.

        AMD cards look pretty decent, they benchmarks they showed looked good but should take them with a grain of salt like always.

        @Melvillian Expecting them likely Q1 2021 for the higher vram cards personally. Some 3080/90 dropped today on Best Buy and they sold out quite quickly. Demand will be high all around for a while.

        Final distro said his son heard it and really liked them but wasn't too descriptive past that. I will try to measure them on some EARS but would need to figure out how to on a TWS lol.

        Probably just need to run them BT from my laptop.

        I know some people will ask questions they sort of know the answer to just to make sure they know what they're doing, are on the right track, etc.

        That or I've noticed some old people legit enjoy trolling after having to take life serious for so long.

        I've had many customers 'test' me by asking questions they already know the answer to. I feel like I'm a dancing monkey sometimes. Playing dumb frustrates the heck out of me, I left the entertainment industry behind for a reason. Sometimes its good natured, other times TROLLS

        I get a pretty good sense when talking to customers how well versed they are. Sometimes it is indeed an older customer wanting someone to share their passion of audio with.

        I do periodically get calls from people who are kinda amazed there is someone with the same amount of interest in the hobby.

      Woke up early for the first time since March for 3080 launch. Should have just slept in, what a waste of time and a disaster of a launch

        @Melvillian Yeah I saw that video. I do think that the hype for this card is a little overblown. It really isn't double an RTX 2080. And it's still 800 dollars, which isn't pocket change.

        The GamerNexus video was pretty good and I understand where they are coming from. Still disappointed I wasn't able to snag a 3080 at launch to upgrade my 1080ti but that's life. I got an order placed on Adorama for a card but it is backordered and I have no ETA.

        Glad I didn't instantly dump my 1080ti earlier this month when I decided I was going to cop a 3080.

        I left a comment about how nvidia has conditioned everyone into thinking $700+ for a video card is a bargain.

        @netforce I have a 1080 and really want to upgrade as well. I’ve been dying to play some games like control with the ray tracing on

        Here in Alhambra, coming home from work last night I drove by two streets blocked off because a transformer blew. My buddy up in Duarte had the power go out on Friday but oddly was able to stay up today and yesterday when it was hotter.

        Its fine, was adjusting how my fridge door opened and forgot that I left a screw on the ground. Luckily it mostly got the side of the foot, little blood but didn't get stuck. Honestly forgot all about it till I was getting discomfort walking at work.

        I would recommend trying it first if you can. I have sold quite a few for work and done many more demos in store. I would say most people, 3/4 have little to no issues with fit/comfort. And then the remaining say they have issues with long term comfort or it does not falls out of their ears.

        For my ears in particular, right ear fits fine, left I have one spot that develops a pressure point with a lot of my IEMs.

        Shoot me a PM, I can loan out probably our store's demo unit to see if it fits for you.

        A solid heavy block like the Audeze baffles probably will sound better than the cruddy resonant plastic rings of stock HE6. My solid wood HE6 rings helped a bit with transient incisiveness, but it won't do much for the FR.
