Very happy! Best I've tried!
Pros: I opened the box revealed a well packaged product. Piano Black and soft touch flat black textures with a little chrome added to a sense of elegance I would normally associate with Klipsch products. A small velvet pouch to contain a he product rounded off the presentation. There are 4 different sets of ear buds and they are oval in shape. All of this lends to a comfortable fit. I chose the largest buds with a north-south orientation of the oval. I charged them completely before trying them out and went right to Dire Straits "So Far Away". Sound was fantastic with Spotify and I used the Spotify Equalizer to fine tune the sound and I was very happy. The set is very light weight and comfortable. With the right buds the fit is great and isolates ambient sound very well. I did not experience fit issues as the other reviewers have. Believe me I have tried every Bluetooth head set from JBL to Bose to that ridiculous LG unit that hangs around your neck that everyone seems to love. For the price my initial review is that so far this is is the finest sounding best fitting head set of its kind I have found yet.
Cons: None so far.
Overall Review: Will try to write back with feedback after a time.
Exactly one year old and dead.
Pros: I'm still a brand loyalist. Easy BIOS for OC No issues with RAM No overheating.
Cons: None really but if it's true that the cooler set up put stress on the board then I'd say its a little too delicate or the cooling setup I chose was just too big and heavy.
Overall Review: I wonder if the relatively heavy cooling fan set up (Arctic Freezer 33 eSports ONE) was wrong for this little board. Right from the start after the cooler was assembled it seemed gravity was going to be a problem. Looked like is was "sagging" in the middle, even when fastened with screws into the case. Over the last few weeks I would get a random bluescreen for devices which couldn't be found. A restart fixed this. This weekend, bluescreen was practically all I got. I checked cables, unplugged things and moved things around, installed the OS 2-3 times and even dialed back the BIOS (when I got a lucky post and boot) and nothing worked. It seems the SATA ports in center of the board are shot. For now, only the two ports along the right border work. So that's the bad news. The good news is that it worked great while it worked for everything I did. I am buying another ASRock ITX board to replace it in this particular build. I have had good experiences with ASRock in the past. In particular, my Pro4S Z170 boards have been rock solid (ATX and Micro ATX) I wanted a smaller build but I'm not sure you save that much space once everything is together. The tower is shorter but still thick and heavy (PSU dictates this). I think if I build a "compact" rig again, ill likely go with a bit larger board just because you loose a lot of real estate (read: features) with an ITX board compared to how much smaller the build is overall. Just a little FYI.
