Re: Recording with GoldWave

Robert Byers
 

Hi Howard!


In Goldwave, press F11, this should bring you in to System.

If it doesn't say System, tab until you here help then tab once more.  Now you can press right Arrow until it say System.

If you tab once from System you should here Playback.  Up and down until you get the sound card you use for playback.  Then tab and you will here Record, again up and down Arrow until you here the sound card you need.  Now tab to OK and press Enter.

I hope this helps.


Rob.


Recording with GoldWave

Howard Traxler
 

Hi All,
Before my Windows update, recording with GoldWave worked fine.  Now, when I try to record, I get the error message: Cannot start recording.  And it refers me to "Help".  Help just opens the manual.  Google tells me that  the error pertains to in input device.  The input (and output) device seems to be WASAPI.  Is that a problem and how can I change it if necessary; and what should I change it to?

Thank you to anyone who can help.

Howard

Re: Bose 700

Actually glittery isn't the reason. Remember 1 of the Bose jokes is no highs no lows hmmmmmmmmm must be Bose. You'd have to talk to 1 of these guys but they say the bass is week the mids aren't all that good and okay okay perhaps the highs though not their taste too week. The Sonys people clame are better. Well for Bass I'd have to hear El Farasante by Ozuna on Sonies to see how good the bass supposedly is. Highs I'll tell you aren't to my taste. Yes pump the volume just right and you'll get some glitter, but not good enough for the the tornado blast roar of Godzilla 1998. That's my hi pitch sounds go to test. If Godzilla 1998 doesn't really wistle out of the things,then the highs are meh.

Hi,

I haven’t heard the QC 35 or 35 2’s, but the sound is better (from what I have read) on the 700s. Don’t get me wrong, the sound quality is good, just doesn’t feel very open to my ears.

No, the latency is probably greater on the Bluetooth than the cable, but - in general - it's a poor situation that the cable connection has any significant lag.

Hi,

The Bose 700 headphones are very comfortable and have some good features for blind users.

The touch controls are extremely easy to use. Sliding your finger vertically up or down the front side3 of the right ear cup increases or decreases the volume.

Sliding your finger forward or backward moves to next track or start of current track/previous track.

Double-tapping pauses and resumes playbak.

There are three physical buttons also

- for power on/off and pairing;
- For adjusting the noise cancelation level between three pre-set levels (the Bose Music app allows you to choose these);
- And the other button is for answering/ending a call, Siri or other voice assistant.

You can choose from level 10 noise cancelation - which is extremely good, through to level 0, which is a pretty responsive and accurate transparency mode.

I often use level 4, which attenuates noise but still allows situational awareness when at home - so I can hear someone calling or what the dog is doing.

For blind folks, this multi-level noise cancelation feature is the stand-out feature of the 700's.

Their other stand-out feature is for phone calls, where they attempt to cancel noise around you as you speak, so the person at the other end only hears you. As with all headphones in this class, their reproduction of your voice is adequate, but not great, lacking high end and some flanging.

Music playback Sound is good, but not super fantastic. Bose have their own sound profile which a lot of audio files are not very impressed by. The app allows you to adjust bass, mid-range and highs, but it’s accessibility is a little fiddly. The Sonys and The AirPods Max are both considered to have much superior sound over-all.

Audio Latency is pretty poor over Bluetooth, which is a shame.

Worse still, there is significant latency when you use the 3.5 ml headphone cable, which makes them poor for audio production work where you really want 0-latency.

That about sums up my experience with these headphones.

Music playback Sound is good, but not super fantastic. Bose have their own sound profile which a lot of audio files are not very impressed by. The app allows you to adjust bass, mid-range and highs, but it’s accessibility is a little fiddly. The Sonys and The AirPods Max are both considered to have much superior sound over-all.

Audio Latency is pretty poor over Bluetooth, which is a shame.

Worse still, there is significant latency when you use the 3.5 ml headphone cable, which makes them poor for audio production work where you really want 0-latency.

That about sums up my experience with these headphones.

H i!
Is anyone using the Bose 700 here?
I am just wondering how it works with the touch gestures?
I suppose they will work for a blind person as there are no display on the headphones.

Hi!
Thanks Tim for your great explanation.
That made me thinking of buying them even though they’re expensive.
But there are more expensive beasts out there.

Hi,

The Bose 700 headphones are very comfortable and have some good features for blind users.

The touch controls are extremely easy to use. Sliding your finger vertically up or down the front side3 of the right ear cup increases or decreases the volume.

Sliding your finger forward or backward moves to next track or start of current track/previous track.

Double-tapping pauses and resumes playbak.

There are three physical buttons also

- for power on/off and pairing;
- For adjusting the noise cancelation level between three pre-set levels (the Bose Music app allows you to choose these);
- And the other button is for answering/ending a call, Siri or other voice assistant.

You can choose from level 10 noise cancelation - which is extremely good, through to level 0, which is a pretty responsive and accurate transparency mode.

I often use level 4, which attenuates noise but still allows situational awareness when at home - so I can hear someone calling or what the dog is doing.

For blind folks, this multi-level noise cancelation feature is the stand-out feature of the 700's.

Their other stand-out feature is for phone calls, where they attempt to cancel noise around you as you speak, so the person at the other end only hears you. As with all headphones in this class, their reproduction of your voice is adequate, but not great, lacking high end and some flanging.

Hi!
I Don’t know as I haven’t tested them.
But I assume they’re like all Bose headphones.
Quite clear and crispy with a lot of base to it.
