Sennheiser RS 130

I ordered a pair of refurbished Sennhesier RS130 headphones from B&H Photo Video over a month ago. They arrived very quickly!! So I ripped open the box as soon as it arrived – tried them on – they looked really big on my head. My coworker calls me Princess Leia now. I wear these headphones at work for 8 hours (straight – pretty much) every day (Mon-Fri). These are the most comfortable headphones I’ve ever worn. Well – I don’t have much to compare it to. I have a POS pair of JVC headphones that would hurt my ears after about 1.5 hours of wearing them. These Sennheisers are great – sound quality and comfort. The charging base is awesome. When you need to charge your headphones, just hang it on the charger. There is nothing to plug it into.

On to pricing – I only paid $75 for them! List price at Amazon is $159. I’m extremely satisfied with my purchase. I’d highly recommend a pair if you can fork up the cash.

Sony Playstation 3

Finally, I gave in – so Daniel and I got a 80GB PS3! I mostly wanted it for Street Fighter IV. I did not own any next-gen consoles – well, I have a Nintendo Wii but that’s not exactly “next gen”. Anyway, I researched and researched and decided that the Playstation 3 is the ultimate (and only) next-gen console. It has everything I need and more. The main features that won me over were the built-in wifi and free online gaming/downloading. Daniel wanted the blu-ray disc player so… it was a done deal.

Our first 2 blu-rays are Cars and No Country for Old Men.

Our first download-only game was Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix. It kinda sucks, but maybe the “turbo” option is not turned on by default because the gameplay is VERY slow.

Our first store-bought game is LittleBigPlanet. This an exclusive game for the PS3. This is a platformer (like Mario) that has a cutesy feel to it. Highly recommended game!

Dell XPS 630

Last night, I purchased a brand new Dell XPS 630 on Dell.com. A really cool feature of this gaming machine is that I can change the LED lights that are on the case. TOTALLY AWESOME! Here are a couple of pictures – one of the machine itself, and the second listing the specs and final cost:

It should ship out 12/9 so I should probably get it in 1.5 – 2 weeks I guess. I can’t wait! It’s going to be totally awesome :-D!!! I’m very excited to try out Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare on it. Right now, I’m (trying to) playing it on my 3 year old HP computer and it sucks! Even doing normal-everyday things suck on that machine though. Sweet! I can’t wait ’til a good 24″, reasonably priced (on-sale) monitor is out. Hopefully there will be some post-Christmas deals out there for me.

Update: OH EM GEE!!! Dell has shipped my new computer today (12/5) and the new estimated delivery date is 12/11! If they (UPS) manage to actually get it delivered by then, they’ll be 4 days ahead of the original schedule and I will then be super impressed by Dell.

乾杯!
