Came back to Aus about a week ago, found out my Logitech z-5300 is totally blown. No sound at all. I wasn’t really that upset. My z-5300 had been with me for 4 years now. Last year it was half blown where the front left and rear right speaker had no sound. This year it is FULLY BLOWN! Oh yeah and that means time to get a new set of speakers!
So, first I went to a computer shop called MSY nearby and asked if they had stock for z-5500’s. The lady at the counter was like mumbling I had no freaking idea what she was on about and the only information I captured was there wasn’t any at the moment. Then I asked if I could book any of them and she said they don’t know when will they get the next set in and she said it could take 2 months. I was like WTF and left the store. Went to another store nearby and yes that store had stock but it was like a hundred bucks more expensive than MSY so I said f**k that and left the store.
When I got home, I placed an online order for z-5500 and it came about two days ago. The price was sorta in between MSY’s and their “competitor”.

Boy, I could not believe my ears. These things are amazing. I never knew there were such a huge difference between optical and normal inputs. Everything sounded clearer. If I were to play a porn movie out loud, my neighbours woulda think there’s hot sex going on in my house.
Also, I bought a new pair of headsets due to extreme comfort issues with my previous Razer Barracuda HP-1 headsets. Those headsets are extremely unfriendly to people who wear glasses. I’ve used these for about a year and previously the issue was just minor but ever since I got a new pair of glasses with thick side frames the problem became much more apparent and it is time to get a new pair of headset. Therefore, I went for…
These headsets are TRULY comfortable, easily a hundred times more comfortable than HP-1. The HP-1 would actually compress your head like a zip file and push up your glasses like how the chicks wear push up bra’s except that chicks do that for world peace and HP-1’s are the opposite.
In other news, I became a fan of Angela Zhang (or Chang) thanks to my friend Vinson who introduced me to the Taiwanese Drama ‘Romantic Princess’. Yeah I know I can be gay (or feminine) at times but yeah that’s me. Angela’s latest album, Ang 5.0 should be in my mailbox within next week. ;)
