Can anybody recommend me some good (cheap) wired noise cancelling headphones that can be worn for long hours. Purpose - The plot next to my place has started construction work and it will last for at least a year and the noise is not letting me work or study. I have tried ear muffs/ear buds from 3M but they are not helping. Currently, I am using Airpods for white noise but do not want to overwork them. 

Budget - about 2-3K, not expecting long life, just want to use something that would last for next 1 to 1.5 year until the building is completed.

Hi guys. I recently bought the Gigabyte M27Q monitor that supports upto 170Hz refresh rate @ 2560 x 1440.

 

I tried connecting my relatively old desktop, with the video card MSI GTX 750Ti via HDMI, but refresh rate is stuck at 60Hz. I understand its a limitation via HDMI 1.4( Pls correct me if im wrong). The only other ports on the video card are dual DVI. I dont have a DVI port on the new monitor.

 

Also have an HP laptop model Elitebook X360 1030 G3, with which im facing the same 60Hz limitation via HDMI. The laptop has two Thunderbolt 3/USB Type-C ports out of which one is used for charging the laptop and a USB 3.1 Type-A port.

 

Pls suggest the best way (display cable and/or adapters) to get the best video and highest refresh rate on my new monitor. Do i have any way to experience higher refresh rate with the current setup?

 

Also, noticing stuttering if i play UHD youtube videos higher than the native resolution of 2560X1440p. How do i fix that?

 

Thanks.

Facing a bit of a unique problem with my Apple Airpods.

 

When using with Mac, only getting audio in my right airpod. No audio in left. But on iPhone, I'm getting audio on both.

 

Tried re-pairing airpods with Mac, but that didn't work. Has anybody faced this issue?

You won't get good noise cancelling at that price. Also, noise cancelling is very bad when it comes to inconsistent noises like a hammer or saw etc. Noise cancelling is brilliant to reduce constant sounds like engines/air-conditioning. But if you play music with noise cancelling on some good earbuds (Apple Airpods or Sony) then it should definitely drown out the noises.

Hello, I am looking for recommendation for a office chair with good lumbar support. My back has started for last couple of weeks so want to get it soon before it comes a problem. Anything in the range of 20K?

 

After a lot of research, i got the Optima High back chair 1 year back, for gaming and working on the PC. 

 

Pros:

Sturdy construction.

Fit and finish is top-notch.

Smoothness of wheels is unmatched.

Tons of adjustability options.

No sweating due to mesh construction. Mesh quality is also great.

One of the very few rare office chairs with enough height and width support for 6'+ guys like me.

 

Cons:

Slightly on the expensive side if compared to regular market office chairs.

I realised that i do not like mesh support and prefer full support.

 

It is around your budget of 20K. Hope it helps.

 

 

Cheers.

Okay, I didn't want to overwork the earbuds since they are expensive and was hoping for a wired/cheaper solution. White noise + music does solve my problem most of the time but wasting Airpods batteries on this seem too much to me. Thanks for the help though.

I think my escape key is no longer working.

 

I bought this Macbook Air (M1) about 6 months ago or so, should be in warranty.

 

It used to work before but now its not working - I noticed because I use the escape key to exit the full screen on youtube videos. I tried one of the simple keyboard tests online, they support this. 

 

What can I do next? Does anyone know how I can get this fixed? I hope this'll be quick I don't want to send in my laptop for multiple days or something. I can survive without it for a while but want to get it fixed since I should be covered on this.

Hey Everyone, Can anyone recommend me pods costing around 7-8k, looking to gift to my brother on his birthday next month.

 

I have shortlisted Sony WF-XB700, Galaxy buds+, Jabra Elite Active 75t & Sennheiser cx 400bt. Watched several YouTube reviews but I would rather trust reviews from those who have used the above pods. Feel free to suggest any other pods too. Cheers :thumbsup:

I'm doing as it says - but wtf why. should I be worried? I'm worried if I've lost all my data and sh*t.

The folder name needs to be PS4 - UPDATE - PS4UPDATE.PUP 

 

In fat32 or exfat format

Yes I followed the steps, set up my PS4 from scratch again. It was annoying to do, and I'm worried how this happened in the first place but no real loss.

 

I wasnt in the middle of any games so losing save files is not bummer. Have only played Apex Legends so just re-downloaded it. all my stats and everything are tied to PSN account.

“Pods” are only from Apple. Among the TWS buds mentioned, from passive experience, Galaxy Buds+ is better performance wise.
