Hes biased somehow.... look at what I quoted. He gave real numbers, but hsi wording made it sound like the Zalman would be annoying at lower sounds then its competator, which have the same sound or worse.
Pretty much, it seems like hes say "The zalman's spec would make it one of the quietest heatsink around, if they wernt so LOUD."
Thats the impression I got from reading it.
How much were those headphones? And is the audio good, or were they just durable? PM me so as not to clog this with completely unrelated garbage.... I'd appreciate it.
