Re: I think my headphones are dead

With BT I can keep my phone securely in my pocket and only take it out when I need to change the file I'm playing or do something else with it. I don't really understand this part. Whenever I use wired headphones, I always keep my phone securely in my pocket. I guess I don't understand why you feel...

Re: I think my headphones are dead

All this to say this: - Consider keeping your transmit device close to your receive device, not in the other room where it must work harder. - Consider having wired headphones - Also, if you haven't checked, is the battery replaceable? At the moment, I'm not positive I can consider any headphones f...

Re: I think my headphones are dead

An update of sorts: The battery is definitely, if not totally deceased, then breathing shallowly. After charging overnight last night, it started giving me a verbal low-battery warning only a few minutes into use. It's probably gone. I did have a talk with the Fred Meyer clerk at Raleigh Hills today...

Re: I think my headphones are dead

The advantage of a dongle is that I would be able to go everywhere in the apartment and still hear what is playing on my PC without making noise and affecting the rest of the building, at least in theory. Whether it truly has practical application is another question.

Re: I think my headphones are dead

What price range are you wanting to stay in? The most I can spend is about $50. Less would be better, but I imagine going too cheap will have consequences. That may be why my current headphones are starting to fail -- I spent too little money and wonder whether I was sold a forgery. I'm also curiou...

What brand/model is your current one?
It's supposed to be a Bluedio T2, but after some things I read today I'm beginning to have my doubts.

I think my headphones are dead

I keep having bad luck with Bluetooth headphones. The latest pair has apparently worn out the battery, as the LED charge light no longer works and it doesn't have nearly as much "on time" as it used to. At least I didn't physically break them this time. In the past I've gotten pretty good advice her...

Older Person Computer?

My mother is very frustrated with the computer she got as a gift a few months ago. It's from Free Geek and runs Linux. She has no clue how to run Linux, and her efforts to get Netflix to work on it failed. She also has not been able to find a good solitaire on Linux that displays large enough cards....

Re: What games are you looking forward to coming out?

Battlefield V looks very interesting, more along the lines of high-adventure WWII (although it wil be the same sort of FPS play I am terrible at). This is going to make me sound incredibly lame, but I am very interested in Madden for the PC assuming I can run it. Sportsgames are the main thing I mis...
