Good: Spectacular sound quality!
Comment: Can't fault these earphones at all! What i would say though is invest in some Comply Foam earbuds and you won't regret it! Makes them even more comfortable and they don't come off in your pocket!
Good: Amazing sound. Not dead accurate. But, it's absolutely insane how good these sound. I'm on my second year with them now.
Comment: The best earphone ever. I recently bought the SHURE SE535, I hesitate to say this but for this review I will....... I prefer these. The sound is shocking , the oval your tip fits perfectly in your your canal. The bass out of these things is fantastic. The highs, crystal-clear, if not maybe a little bright. at the highest of volumes things get a little bit muddy but still phenomenally tight. So light so comfortable. I absolutely love these things. I've read that the next version will be "Image S7i". Ceramic body, flat cord. $200. Due out this month August 2012. If they are of the same sound quality were better hold off on these wait for those.
Good: hard bass, good mids - highs, attractive look, ultralight weight, money value
Bad: wires doesn't seems durable
Comment: first of all thumbs up for klipsch designers..
5 stars for sound
5 stars for look
5 stars for comfort
4 stars for durability
i just love the carrying case
well said klipsch: feel your music not your headphones
Good: Sound quality
Bad: Poor build quality
Comment: I bought these to replace an old, broken pair of Shures. Great while they lasted but then the cable broke where it joins the jack and after only a couple of months.
Regret wasting my money and I would recommend them to anyone.
Good: Easy, comfortable fit.. Great sound, even bass, when snuggly fitted.
Bad: After 18 months I have a loose connection somewhere around the jackplug.
Comment: Good value for money, heavily discounted at Amazon - free even, if you sign up to Audible. But constant use (careful plugging and unplugging) seems to have taken its toll. Bought from Amazon, live outside UK, don't know if warrenty covers repair....doubt it. They were great while they lasted though.
Good: amazing sound quality
Bad: not durable
Comment: Amazing sound quality for the price but I would pay more if they would be more durable. In year time I had three pairs of them, fortunately had to exchanged them each time within warranty but this time I am just going to go with something else.
Good: Noise cancelling, Good quality, Sharp Bass, Price
Bad: Earbuds come off easily, Tangling Wires.
Comment: These are probably the best earphones you can get on the market for this price. They cancell all the noise out and you can hear each part of the music. They wrap around the ipod easily. They are very comfortable.
On the other hand, I have found that if you put them into tight pockets, (such as those found on jeans, the earbuds are prone to come off and you have to ding back into your pocket to find them. I have overcome this problem by supergluing my bud to the headphones so that they will not come off. Also, if you put them into your pockets, they are prone to tangle and take forever to untangle. This is fixed by wrapping them around your ipod.
In conclusion, I think these earphones are very good but you need to make some adjustments to the way you usally carry your headphones (shove into pocket) and they will turn out outstanding...
I have had them for about a year now and they havent broken me yet.. the cord does look and feel fragile but it has gone to the depths of a jungle and into the desert with me and still suvived! 5/5 definetly!
Good: Very comfortable, Excellent sound quality for the price
Bad: Included tips aren't perfect
Comment: For the price these are probably some of the best headphones that you can get. The bass response is excellent and the clarity at higher frequencies is on a par with headphones worth two times more. The tips that are included won't fit everyone, and a poor seal around the ears will lead to ear infections which can be either irritating or painful. If you can get the right fit, you won't even notice you're wearing these 'phones, the design is great (although it looks counter-intuitive at first) and you don't pick up a lot of noise from the cable moving around against your clothes, which is a problem that all in-ear headphones suffer from. The cable seems quite weak due to it being so thin, however, and so you should make good use of the protective tin that comes included.
Good: The sound definition is extrordinary.
Bad: Sometimes a bit tinny, but then I think that might well me my player!
Good: clarity of sound
Bad: can't get ''perfect'' fit, i'm in between sizes i think
Comment: Had a pair of Phillips SHN2500 buds .Got them at airport as replacements for the standard ones that came with my phone .I thought they were OK.I have now decided to buy a better mp3 player and wanted better earphones so after reading reviews chose these.The difference in clarity is amazing , they are not as bassy as the phillips but the bass is more controlled ,this suits me fine because I find constant heavy bass thumping very tiring . I got them from iheadphones , ordered on 12th got them next day their service and price were excellent . recommended.
