and this country remains the global beacon of freedom and hope. No matter what, no matter how things look, we're still the best hope for democracy and human rights, and we're getting better, as a nation. We have a long way still to go, but I have faith the USA will eventually reach true equality among all of our people. I for one thank the Lord every day that I am able to live here.
All vegan version of the Focal Elegia, but fully vegan, no real leather (headband) and microfiber earpads, to complement the Massdrop X Focal Elex (which has a leather headband).

Please make. Let's hear support. 🙏
Since I've been quite active there, Never seen realised how annoying the community is. Pretty 95% low tier memes/gear pics while other 15% is "Experts". Who seem to think they always right no matter how stupid they come off regardless of the topic, Like going on for months a HD6XX/HD650 can driven on amps that can't handle 300ohm driver.
I only lurk for the popcorn like the weekly "DAE ____ is overhyped" with users giving out -8 to people giving honest opinions. Or the "I can tell 320 vs Lossless" where they refuse back there claims & go on how you need a Stax/HD800S/ER4XR to tell, When i would trust them bit more if it was done on $50 headphones too.
My wife is assist teaching an in-person science class, kind’a avatar style, for the actual teacher, who had brain surgery and must remain remote, though in-school. The school was not setup for this hybrid config., and sound, well sucks... we lent him our PC37X but we need a simple, cheap, but still decent sq, USB DAC with hp&mic jacks to work with his laptop, not the school PC, need suggestions for this application - clear voice, budget <$50. Perhaps the Creative dongle?
Need larger ear pads. Love Sennheiser. Thoughts on Focal Elex?
I have a set of Sennheiser HD-6XX and HIFIMAN HE-4XX. I can wear the HD-6XX a long time as they have an oval shaped ear pad. The circular pads on the HIFIMAN's are a bit small for my giant ears. I am considering buying the Focal Elex' but am unable to find specific size / dimensions of the inside of the earpad, as they are also circular. Any recommendations or experience similar to mine, I'd greatly appreciate your help.
