YouTuber Jared Busch is a tech reviewer so when it comes to desk setups, he doesn’t mess around. Most of his gear is for gaming — and for making tech reviews on his YouTube channel.

He runs this setup off a 2016 MacBook Pro. He has a testoserone-filled 35-inch Acer Predator Z35P Curved Monitor, which he calls “one of the best 21:9 gaming monitors available right now!” But he might change it because it has a “bit too much of an aggressive look” to it.

He rocks a Logitech G603 Lightspeed Wireless Gaming Mouse. Its one-millisecond response time makes for great gaming. He has a SEWINO keyboard that he pimped it out with DSA HC Granite Key Caps (from PimpMyKeyboard.com). With this combination, his upgraded keyboard “sounds awesome and feels like butter.”

To hold his MacBook he has the Twelve South BookArc, which got because its one of the few vertical MacBook stands available in Space Grey.

He has a pair of Sennheiser HD 598 Cs Closed Back Headphones, which are a little more expensive than most mid-market noise-cancelling headphones and are wired. But if you are an audiophile or doing specialized audio work, these more than do the job.

A Nekmit Leather Desk Pad helps keep his desk clean and organized. Phillips Hue Bulbs are fun and interactive and help make your office look a little less like a gloomy hospice.
