Sorry I wasn't talking about official dongle. Seems like that 3.5mm jack and dongle is the only cheap solution.

Unfortunately that won't work with the Sony Gold/Plat headsets, as the 7.1 tech is not Bluetooth.

For me, both gold and platinum 7.1 audio quality weak leh :lol: Not worth it to buy official dongle.

Haha I also not audiophile, standard stereo good enough for me, that's why even if I can't sell I can use the headset at home with the 3.5mm aux cord.

Also dunno if many games support 7.1 audio? The games need to support it natively for the 7.1 to work with the PS4 right? So if dun support, we're just getting standard stereo from the dongle, which is no diff from using the 3.5mm aux cord with the DS4.

Not many devs bother to do 7.1. A cheaper alternative wired hyperx cloud ii sounds better than both gold and platinum headset. 7.1 can only be enabled manually in ps4 settings every time you boot ps4 for cloud ii. I think the gold ones are okay, affordable and headband doesn't break as easily as some have claimed it to be. I don't have muscles like Conan the Barbarian. Sacrifice abit of audio quality for wireless is fine. But platinum definitely not worth the price. I've seen a few pple in reddit, should be ang moh, complained about the headband being too tight and one of them mentioned that he has a small head. So this is designed for who? Kids? Or the guy who sits beside beetlejuice? Some of them wrap it with a thick sock. I bought a knitted headband to cover over it. Still uncomfy but better. Can't wear it for more than an hour.

I have 2 Sony XB950BT. Super comfortable, can wear from 9 to 5, earcups easy to replace from shopee & cheap, has detachable 3.5mm aux and BT/NFC options, with wireless lasting over 10 hours, mic works very well even though it has no boom. Earcups can also turn 90 degrees to facilitate 1-ear adhoc use or sitting flat on a surface.

Started with 1, so happy with it that I bought a second, 1 at home 1 in office :)

Huh $28 only, really? The red one looks good.

Re: I want to rant!

$28? Then is not the same one.

This one: https://www.sony.com/electronics/headba ... dr-xb950bt

Maybe the MDR is mandatory.

EDIT: Hmm this Lazada link does say $28: https://www.lazada.sg/products/sony-xb9 ... quEALw_wcB

Holy shit really $28... amazing deal. When I got mine around 6-7 years ago it was $188. I have a red and a black. Wa didn't know even the headband can be replaced for cheap, bagus.

Shopee $14!?! https://shopee.sg/SONY-Extra-Bass-MDR-X ... 4208799800

If the Shopee $14 is legit, IMHO is a no-brainer to get, though is quite old tech 6-7 years liao... think the BT version if that concerns you is not BT v5 for sure, will likely be v4 if not worse v3. But if $14 and legit, way better choice than buying some random Taiwanese or Chinese OEM.

Considering that I have 2, owned them for 6-7 years, AND STILL USING...

Tho I have to wonder if these aren't OEM fakes.

Hmm headphone 29995 in stock, doesn't look like genuine to me.

I placed order for dumbbells from qoo10 seller with seller own fleet delivery $4 on last friday afternoon 12pm+ and it was delivered same day evening 6pm, also got a notification through whatsapp at 3pm. I ordered exercise bike from shopee seller also with seller own fleet delivery free on last thursday afternoon 12pm+ and status immediately changed to "parcel picked up". But never deliver and no updates at all. Today asked seller when deliver, replied me with 3 to 5 business day after payment confirmation. A few reviews mentioned fast delivery, yeah fast my ass. So you see this 2 days to ship out shopee regulation does not apply to seller own fleet delivery. Once seller update to parcel picked up, status on buyer side changed to receiving, cannot cancel order until shopee guarantee expire.

Did you eventually buy it? Now on Shopee got at least 4-5 sellers from M'sia (strange) all selling this headset for roughly the same price, $16-$19 some with "Free Shipping + 10% Cashback" summore.

I was shopping for replacement cable, Amazon.sg selling $13+ (incl shipping), if it's gonna cost me $13 ... then buying from Shopee seems like a no-brainer.

Re: I want to rant!

Wed Feb 19, 2020 12:47 pm

Haven't buy yet. Yea you can try, it's cheap.

Re: I want to rant!

Thu Feb 20, 2020 9:04 am

Still, abit fearful cuz there's now like 5-6 sellers all from M'sia selling it for roughly the same price. Did they find an abandoned cargo ship or is it somehow Sony M'sia dumping excess inventory?

I feel that Yakuza 7 destroyed the fun in the series' brawler style combat system with turn based style. I think one of the highlights has always been the moves Kiryu learnt gradually from Komaki Sotaro especially the tiger drop move which is a parry and counter for huge damage. I enjoyed learning boss attack pattern, baiting and counter with tiger drop. With Yakuza 6 and Zero, they changed it to quick swap fighting styles and nerfed tiger drop. But then it's still moderately fun. The fast action combat helps in balancing out the dragginess of the long ass cutscenes which can be summarized. I'm forcing myself to platinum Yakuza 7. Played until chapter 7 and I feel burnt out and lacking motivation to continue. Thus I have been working on mini games these few days. Managing a crackers company, playing mahjong and dragon kart racing are way more entertaining then the dull and boring plot, combat. You can change class/job, they are not very interesting and imo the interesting ones are dlcs, 2 for $9+. Max level is 30 per class and you can purchase experience manuals dlcs which can be purchased multiple times. Well this is the trend now, timesavers lols. Levelling class is very slow much more than grinding actual char levels until you unlock colisseum but still need to grind, just at a slightly faster rate. You have the standard normal attacks and skills consisting of buffs, debuffs, healing, revive, mid range attacks, limited aoe, team attacks and thanks for the skip button. It's damn annoying to keep watching the lame team attack cutscenes. Yakuza games have always have players running around in narrow streets and placing quite a fair amount of thugs encounter. With this slow turn based system, it adds on to the agony and frustration from getting constantly interrupted when you are just trying to get to the next checkpoint to advance the already weak plot. Your group of 4 members takes a turn and then enemies turn which can be up to 8 thugs. Your attacks can be interrupted and there goes your party members turn. In past Yakuza games, you can get interrupted too but it's quicker to react since it's brawler style but this you lose one freaking turn and need to wait for 6 to 8 thugs turn to be over. As I have mentioned, narrow streets so most of the time you can't runaway from battle. Once you get into battle, the escape choice also rarely work. But you also wouldn't want to escape, remember levelling is slow lols unless you are a whale. The plot is the usual HK classic triad movies, main protagonist goes to jail for a crime he didn't commit for the sake of his dai lou. Then get mixed up in other pple's business which I called it filler quests. I wish this was a spinoff instead of numbered. I know that if Y8 is still using this turn based combat, I'm done with the Yakuza series. Main protagonist don't have the charisma anyways. Looks like Kiryu char model with different hairstyle, sound like Kiryu but not Kiryu lols. This will be the first one in the series that I will not stack chinese ver and english ver platinum trophy. At least there is still the Y3,4,5 remastered series. And no wonder Y7 is on sale for $50+ in less than 2 months on local psn store. I bought retail version full price $79.90 last week.

Jan & Feb nothing. March sale bought Valkyria Revolution for $10. April Spring sale nothing. Last downloaded psplus game is Darksiders 3 but never play because there is no season pass here and individual dlcs were never on sale. April free game UC4 sigh...

3rd time us psn One Piece World season pass on sale and 4th time for uk psn. Once for local psn back in aug, discounted like $5. Wasn't expecting dlc for this game. I think once again they forgot there is an asia psn store.
