Modern Minimal Desk Setup Tour: Home Office Edition (2020)

by birtanpublished on August 4, 2020

What's up everybody this is Danny and today I've partnered with Qualcomm to show you my updated desk and office setup tour for 2020 I made a few modifications because I'm working from home every day and before all of this madness happened I was traveling quite a

Bit so most of my content was being produced and edited on the road but I'm really enjoying this setup and while it's different I love being home if you haven't seen my previous setup tour the heart of the setup hasn't changed this

Is still the dream setup the desk is the BDI central lift with a beautiful sudden edge glass top I added a wireless charger inside of my desk drawer unit one of my favorite things I use every day computer power comes from the very

Overkill Mac Pro which gives me plenty of power for video editing is the 16 core version the monitor is Apple 6k Pro display XDR I added eight Logitech magnetic 4k camera for video chats since it feels like I'm in a meeting every

Other day in my previous setup tour I had the Nano edge matte version of this display and I want to talk about why I switched to the glossy version later on in this video and why I decided to go with the infamous $1,000 Apple stand

Overall it's a beautiful and minimal setup with incredible cable management I know a few of you asked what this wire cover is and I will leave a link below it's cheap and effective and the chair is still human scale this is an awesome

Chair so airy and comfortable there is no doubt that the biggest adjustment working from home is having my family in the same space and I know a lot of you can relate I have two young children at home and with school being cancelled and

Distance learning I'm just learning to adapt to the ever-increasing noise level that's in my house I'm not sure where they get all this energy from so I was super excited when Bose reached out to let me try their noise cancelling

Headphones 700 and here are some reasons why those have become a permanent part of my setup I don't know about your kids but mine are loud and these make it so much easier for me to concentrate because the noise cancellation on the

Bose 700 headphones are fantastic I love how easy it is to customize the level of noise cancellation so you are in full control that you've called number ten kids mode or you can go down to zero that allows transparency mode so if I am

Working but I want to hear what's going on this is perfect for it it's really great because I can conveniently toggle noise cancelling directly from the headphones it's hard to demonstrate what the experience sounds like but I'll do

My best so here is an extreme test of what it can be like in my house so I have my kids back there cue music this is what it sounds like for real okay cube at you

Pretty incredible isn't it also if you're anything like me music helps me stay motivated and helps me power through these edits so sound quality is extremely important to me and the Bose 700 headphones sound great the vocals

Are nice and crisp it's a nice balanced sound I like the more neutral approach to sound compared to their previous noise cancelling headphones and I love that they recently added a equalizer to customize the sound to your liking I

Think this is really important because of Qualcomm's connectivity tech built inside the connection is reliable every time Qualcomm doesn't just make incredible chips that power the majority of smart phones today they're also

Making other everyday tech better with their technology like these headphones I've had zero drops or choppy connections which is a personal pet peeve a bluetooth headphones and they are extremely comfortable look at how

Plush the ear cups are it's like clouds on your ears I wear these for hours and I just forget that they're on when I saw these in pictures I wasn't sure about the design but the more I use them the more I like the modern and clean look

The design just flows and the lines are beautiful the adjustability is easy the touch sensitive sides are intuitive for stopping skipping tracks and you can also control the volume from here so I don't even have to touch my phone when

It comes to noise cancelling headphones these are one of the best on the market it is lightweight it's durable and it just checks off all the marks up to 20 hours of battery life don't just take my word for it we're going to give one of

You a chance to try them out for yourself so leave a comment let me know what your favorite feature of the Bose headphones 700 are and hit that like button if you want to see more giveaways on the

Channel a random person will be selected and contacted and I'll pin it in the comment section below if you're interested in picking these up I'll leave a link down below for you you never know when they're gonna go on sale

So make sure you check current pricing I don't think you'll be disappointed with these these are a certified win this next edition was a good one because I'm in my office more than ever this is my new mini fridge this is an insignia

I believe I picked it up at Best Buy I picked this up for two reasons number one it's quiet it's on right now and there's not branding all over the front so just nice clean and minimal and also my office doubles as a movie room so

This is perfect to get a drink while taking a break from creating content right over there I made a little coffee station I've gotten so lazy with coffee I'm sure a lot of people will be disappointed in me but I just use a

Nespresso machine with a milk frother and also the Ember connected coffee mug which keeps the coffee hot it isn't cheap but I've grown to love it throughout time I added a nest hub to my desk because I could control all of the

Smart lighting and temperature in the office but I loved it because if someone rings the doorbell I can see an immediate feed this is essential so I don't miss important packages and communication with the family is really

Easy my wife can just let me know when dinner is ready with an announcement and I can keep an eye on the kids if I need to then I can stream every camera that I have in the house right through this so I'm glad I added this to my desk I'm

Still using the same Apple keyboard and trackpad combo I know some people think I'm crazy not using a mouse but I love the trackpad for editing let me know if you do the same thing or you just think I'm crazy cuz I don't use a mouse to

Edit I wouldn't blame you if you want to see in more detail what the entire setup looks like make sure you check out the Mac Pro test setup tour and I appreciate the support on that but I want to talk about why I took the monitor arm off

That I had in the setup and why I switched to the glossy version of the pro display XDR from the Nano etched mat version I'm gonna be 100% truthful the Apple monitor stand was a complete impulse buy I wanted to see what all the

Hype was about and I'm gonna tell you right now it is not worth $1000 but I do enjoy its minimal and clean look and the functionality it does keep the monitor still so I have zero movement while I'm typing and it's very easy for me to

Adjust it when I stand up once in a while to edit I started standing up a couple of times during the day while editing and it does make a difference and having that easy tilt on the monitor and movement on their monitor helps but

It is completely unnecessary there was absolutely nothing wrong with the monitor arm I just wanted to switch it up but when it comes to the display it's a little bit different so the Nano edge version

I love the anti glare properties on the matte display it was really really good but I just couldn't get used to the fact that the images looked soft I'm not used to the matte display so when I'm editing video it just looked soft overall so

What I did was I went to the store I looked at them side by side and notice how much of a sharpness difference there was on the glossy version so I swapped them out and I couldn't be happier it just looks so

Much sharper it's exactly what I'm used to with using the MacBook Pro and the reflections on the glossy version are not bad at all it's actually quite good unless you're just surrounded by a glass cage then I would definitely go for this

So if you're looking to buy a pro display XDR go to the store look at the two side-by-side before you make a decision because that's what I did and now I'm team glossy don't hate me if you want to see a full office tour let me

Know the reason why I haven't posted one yet because this could be getting completely rearranged into a movie theater room so make sure you stay tuned for that but I do want to answer a few questions

That I always get when I post pictures of my office on social media the shoe wall a lot of people are interested in that these are on IKEA lack shelves they aren't expensive and easy to put together and I'm sure you've seen these

Before but I just get asked constantly what they are so IKEA lack the TV Media Console is the BDI Ola I've had this for four to five years already and I love it just love that modern look it's timeless when it comes to smart lighting and

Ambient lighting I've switched over completely to Philips hue behind the TV console is a life strip and behind my desk is the same that's how I'm able to add a splash of color to the setups I highly recommend them even though they

Are not cheap I hope you enjoyed this quick update a setup tour and hit that like button if you want to see more setups on this channel there's a brand new set up right over there which I can't wait to show you so make sure you
