NH-U12 vs NH-U12P
A friendly bout between two products from the same company, how do they compare when put next to each other.
- Height: 155mm vs 158mm, the new one is slightly taller.
- Width: 124mm vs 126mm, and also wider.
- Depth: 70mm vs 71mm, ever so slightly deeper.
- Weight: 606gr vs 600gr, the newcomer is fitter, lost a bit of weight.
The NH-U12P clears more room around the socket, has 36 fins instead of 38 on the NH-U12, this loss in fins is compensated by the slightly larger surface area of the fins, but you’d have to look very hard to notice a difference there, as we’re talking about millimetres.
Overall the NH-U12P has a sleeker look and less chance for corrosion over time, leaving no thumb prints on the fins, thanks to the nickel finish.
