    What's even better is when you live in rented student accommodation. The beds have likely had many people in them doing many things other than sleeping. At least I have a mattress topper.

    Although I didn't find anything suspicious under UV light thankfully.

    On a slightly unpleasant note, thank Christ for the internet. I use Yamaha EPH100 IEM's, however this particular headphone features a fun little design flaw, condensation can form inside the headphones. The first time I learned of this was on the first day of using them (it was cold outside) and one headphone cut out entirely, I took it out and a drop of water fell out of it. However recently one of the headphones has been quieter than the other and not as well defined. Turns out that is part of the same problem however it can be fixed by taking the headphones apart and cleaning them out, which thankfully someone documented the process of, lets just say the insides were not pretty. On the other hand they sound great again.

    They truly are fantastic sounding headphones, however someone at Yamaha is a moron for not noticing this design flaw. It doesn't seem to effect people with desert like ear canals though which would explain a lot. I however have to wear something on my head while using them in the cold in order to keep the metal warm to prevent condensation swamping them.

    Went in for a close whiff and was pleasantly surprised to find it smells mostly like an old lady's house with only a hint of bum. Either nothing too terrible has happened to it or my ass smells enough like an old lady's house to overpower anything there previously. It was built before the advent of home computers so it probably spent most of it's life in a workplace, sitting room, or any other place wherein pants are generally worn. It has a few stains but they look like coffee.

    Someone would have to have very unusual genitalia for them to be bodily fluids. Upon closer inspection, they have a slight metallic sheen, leading me to believe it's actually paint. I plan on reupholstering it anyway since the last person to chose an interesting shade of orange (I'm guessing it was the '70s) which doesn't match the seat back, and did a terrible job.

    I wish it was less expensive to get in and out of London. To get the train it would cost around £100 at peak times (return ticket). You can buy a functioning car for that sort of money, although good luck with the tax and insurance in my age range :p

    For reference, I can get a train to Manchester, then a flight to Paris all with return for cheaper. And the train to Manchester would have been over 66% of the total cost of the journey.

    Equally, If I were to pay £100 to get to London and back I could get a flight from London to Breman (Germany where BeamNG is) for £25 with return. Although it would be with RyanAir so there is probably hidden extra charges.

    That's why I prefer the USB sound card on my HyperX Cloud IIs. Can't really get that wrong.

    I also use a USB soundcard for my 5.1 set because I have a laptop. I think I did it smart: an USB hub with mouse, keyboard, ps4 controller for beam and the soundcard, and a HDMI so I only have to plug in 3 cables when I get home (USB, power and HDMI) extra advantage is the easier cable management.

    I use my lagtop pretty much as a desktop PC in my bedroom, I have it plugged into my TV via HDMi. Because it only has 3 USB ports I use one of those keyboards where there's a separate keyboard and mouse but one dongle, it's very useful as I wouldn't want to use up two ports because I connect my external drive via USB3 and it would take up the usb3 as one of the usbs doesn't work :p

    Microphones and speakers are exactly the same thing. If you plug your headphones into the microphone port open audacity and hit record you will be able to use them as a microphone.

    The difference being that with headphones/speakers you are using electricity in order to move the speaker driver. With a microphone you are using your voice (or whatever material you are recording) in order to move the speaker driver, which in turn creates electricity that the computer then receives through the mic input.

    However it is worth noting that headphones and microphones are often tuned differently. For example a really nice pair of headphones will likely sound fairly naff as a microphone.
