Klipsch Reference S4i Premium In-Ear Noise-Isolating Headphones with Microphone (Black)
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

4 out of 5 eggs Excellent Sound, Mediocre Build 10/13/2013

This review is from: Klipsch Reference S4i Premium In-Ear Noise-Isolating Headphones with Microphone (Black)

Pros: There headphones are one of the nicest earphones I have worn from Klipsch, from having owned older pairs of headphones these felt nice and fit into the ear. The older pair had a heavy wire that made the headphones feel like they were constantly being pulled out, but this is not the case for these headphones. Klipsch seems to be constantly changing their wire design and these wires are a thin clear design. Being thin wires, these tangle easily, which is solved in their newer headphones which feature a ribbon flat cable.

The headphones don't muddle the sound with too much of anything and have a decent balance. The headphones fit into your ear nicely and block out a decent amount of sound, not the most but enough to enjoy your music comfortably without having to turn up the sound to max. There is also a mic built into the remote which is good at picking up your voice even if the remote isn't clipped to your shirt.

The headphones also come with a metal tin carrying case, this might also be a con as the tin can't really fit the headphones with the weird foam insert. The tin is also a bit bulky so it isn't very feasible to carry it around in your pocket. The newer S4i (II) has a soft carrying case rather than a tin.

Cons: I had to knock 1 egg of for the build quality. The rubber used in the headphones wear down and split apart where they are closed together. These do not affect the actual performance of the headphones (as far as I know). The little piece that connects the 2 earbud wires is also made of rubber so it is typically the first rubber piece to break so its a contributing factor to the tangling that can occur in daily use.

Other Thoughts: I also have an android phone (LG P990 2x) so the center button works for it. The volume buttons don't work but they have an app that allowed for control of the volume by pressing and holding down the center button. Also note, the difference between these headphones and the normal S4i are only color as far as I know/have read.

Although the rubber can wear off, the headphones themselves are nicely built and I am typically careful with my headphones so for those guys who are rough with their headphones they might not last as long, but fear not. For Klipsch gives a generous 2 year warranty with their headphones. I have already had a replacement set mailed (with free shipping) and received the newer S4i (II). Normally I wouldn't consider warranties in product purchasing but Klipsch gives a 2 year warranty making even a full price a good deal when it comes to headphones. I always see friends replacing headphones every few months and by buying these you have ensured fantastic sound for 2+ years.

Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: -Pretty cheap for $30
-Good performance
-Moves lots of air with 2 2000RPM fans
-Included fan has decent performance and is quiet, NOT some low end budget fan that's loud and doesn't move any air

Cons: -Come with 1 fan
-Hard to get the mounting bracket through the heat sink
-Unmounting the heat sink is a pain, don't tighten the screws too much onto the lug nuts as when you try to unscrew the screws, you'll be unscrewing the nuts in the back and not the screw from the lug nuts. Only 4 eggs for that reason

Other Thoughts: Had hyper 212+ and this has a more "direct" contact with the cpu, the heat pipes are more grounded down and have more contact with the CPU. diagram:
212 EVO
Key: X = aluminum, | = Copper pipe ***
This is a rough representation between the differences between the + and EVO, as you can see there is less aluminum contact and basically the middle part is all copper contact with no aluminum contacting between the pipes

***this is from memory and may not be accurate

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: -Cheap
-Metal heat sink with a nice red color
-PC3 12800
-8 GB
-Low latency and 1.5 Voltage
-Comes with G.Skill sticker for the front of your case

Cons: Only Con I can think of is the heatsink on the ram, make sure your CPU fan isn't too big as to get in the way of the ram. I had to raise one of the CPU fans on the Hyper 212 EVO or I would've had to use the other ram slots. This isn't a cause for losing an egg as you can see the heatsink in the picture. It protrudes about 1cm more over the normal ram stick size.

Other Thoughts: With the $40 price tag can't go too wrong with a purchase. Its a decent buy at that price, I was watching sales and $40 is probably the best price for this kind of product with low latency and the 1.5v area.
