Default S&B Cold Air Intake Kit vs Volant Cold Air Intake

I currently own a 2012 Ram 1500 and was debating between these two Cold Air intakes:
S&B Cold Air Intake Kit (Cleanable oil Filter) Item # 75-5064
or
Volant Cold Air Intake - Part #:160576

They both look real similar. Any person use any one of these and have any Pros or Cons to say about each? Any helpful tips, advice or comments would be very helpful.

Have you checked out some of the reviews online for both of these intakes? S&B is the popular choice between the two. Volant has some "fitness" issues with 4th Gen Rams.

Check out these reviews from some well-respected members:

I've had both of those plus the K+N and the Vararam for my 2012 R/T. Hands down the S&B takes it. Their fitment, quality of components, expandability and more is factory level in its execution. I am a massive perfectionist and the S&B stunned me with its quality.
