In Topic: R1 vs XR500

02 June 2018 - 11:43 PM

to those who had both, did the xr500 improve your connection?

No it's not going to make you not lag in video games because someone else has a horrible connection, but as said above the XR 500 has excellent WiFi and it does have the new OS.


In Topic: R1 DumaOS Briefly Delayed

How about this boys, most of you know the situation that us mods are in. Which is trying to keep things civil and still answer questions about the issue at hand. And most of you also know that we don't know anymore than you guys do about the release. None of us are employed by Netduma, we try to help out on the forum, don't get paid for it, just really liked the R1 when it first came out and helped people who were having issues with the set up in their home networks.

 

I don't think any of us in their position with the opportunity to partner with Netgear would have done anything different than they did. It is a business at the end of the day, and anyone in business knows that you do what is best for the business and growth of the product you market. Believe it or not we didn't know anything about the Netgear deal, until it was announced. Again we aren't on the inside of their business dealings, meetings etc, were just  owners and paying customers like everyone else on here.

 

I myself am disappointed that the update for the R1 isn't out yet. As I've said all along I am a OG Duma fan as it has some things that the XR 500 does not. Yes I have both but my preference is still the R1 as the features that I'm really interested in are gone be on it, anti spike and anti jitter to be specific.

 

Again as much as we would like to "make them" tell us something, we can't. We're in the same boat as everyone else patiently or impatiently waiting for any word on the status or the actual release of the new OS. Until then we're just trying to keep the peace, which as you guys are well aware of is not an easy task at this point.

Yeah they take a little time to break in to get the treble to tame, then a bit of brain burn in to get used to the image but boy what a headphone and for basically nothing in the head-fi world of headphones and the crazy prices.

 

Hope you find them/get them back soon.

Yeah you and I have both spent a lot more money on cans that were less than impressive. For the price I just haven't even seen anything in the ballpark with theses cans, so my first thought is why isn't somebody else doing this same thing. It shows that a quality headset can be made at an affordable price and IMO this is a very solid set of cans.

 

And yes Yoda, I hope I find them too. The more I see this thread the more I want to use them again and hopefully I don't have to beat one of my nephews in the process... ;)


In Topic: BLACK OPS 4 REVEAL - BLACK OPS 3 REMASTERED OR MASTER STROKE??

18 May 2018 - 08:55 PM

Pretty on point as usual, and I agree with pretty much everything you said. And you're right the game will be successful just because it's a COD game. Even the worst games in COD history are extremely successful, I have never heard  of them losing money on any title. So this is just an example but let's say the worst title only made them 60 million dollars, that's still a pretty successful game. The sad thing IMO is that they only get better when there are other games the people would rather play, as i the case today.

 

They do need to build a new engine and have for 8 plus years, but I don't see that happening...EVER. I'll still buy the game, even though I didn't like  BO  2 or 3 I bought and played them. The only BO title I liked was BO1 and still do. I like boots on the ground as it seems the games are less laggy without all the exo movements. 

 

Hopefully it will run smooth, they will make the matchmaking the way it should be and it will be a great title but time will tell but I'm looking forward to the beta to check it out firsthand.

 

Great review and I appreciate the fact that your always straight up about your opinion on things... :D
