Summary: Let me start by saying that I am no expert when it comes to sound. I am not very good at using what I like to call "Audiophile terminology". Anyways, on to the review.
-Dell Inspiron 15
-Samsung Galaxy Q
-Sony Xperia S
-iPod touch 2nd gen
-iPod nano 5th gen
-iPod nano 6th gen
Well, having owned these for as long as I have, there have been countless tracks used with these.
Pros: Light. Sturdy. Compact. Bass (for those who like it). Comfortable for a few hours. Remote and mic. Easy to EQ. Nice design. Nice case.
Cons: Bass. Recessed mids. Muddy. Bloated. The wire, Plug.
Cons: Need minor adjustment as with any phones. Wirless and wired controls will only work with Apple products. Spoke with CSR tech at Klipsch and was informed none of their overear products controls will work with anything but Apple
Summary: Having gone from the absolutely awful Sony MDR-XB500s directly to these, I was relatively impressed. Only relatively, though. Now that I own Audio-Technica ATH-M50s with non-airtight velour replacement pads and a Fiio E11 without using the bass boost feature, I've come to truly appreciate the somewhat more neutral sound my current setup presents. The Image ONE has plenty of sub, and it extends impressively low. The highest highs, however? Gone.
Pros: Will satisfy bassheads, restrained highs are forgiving, very durable and good-looking
Cons: Too much bass for me, drowned lower mids, upper mids are pushy
Pros: Great sound once bass is reduced (see below). Comfortable, and easy to control. Long batter life. Doubles as phone headset to make calls (good for long conference calls). Collapses nicely into rigid case for transport in my laptop backpack. Great all around experience.
Cons: Everything below about 250 HZ is overpowering and disproportionate to the source material compared to all other speakers I have. I have an iPhone, and I airplay and/or Bluetooth my music in my truck (w/ Ford Sync), at work, and at home to 3 different zones. I also have two portable speakers (a big Ion Block Rocker and a smaller iHome WH1) that I use for my kids' parties and family stuff. After fiddling with the iPhone EQ settings I found that the "bass reducer" pretty...
Summary: Let me start off this review by saying two things: 1) This is one of my very first reviews, so I'm sorry if I'm horribly inaccurate and stupid-sounding or just flat-out wrong. I try to write my reviews without bias and with as much honesty as I can. 2) I am not an audiophile, I listen to my headphones on an iPod touch 5th gen, and I don't own a portable amp.
Summary: These are my favorite headphones of all time. They aren't the best sounding or looking or the best quality build, but they aren't lacking and can be found for VERY cheap.
Quality and looks
The looks are very good. I would prefer a matte finish but the leather-texture on the back of the ear cups looks very nice. The chrome also looks nice. They are small and look completely non-pretentious. The build quality is shocking.
Pros: Inexpensive, durable, lightweight, good sound, bass, in-line remote
Cons: A bit small for over-ear, a bit big for on-ear, thin cable/connector
Summary: The Image One's were the first over-ear/ on- ear headphone I purchased. I was always concerned about them not being as loud as in ears, and the portability issues as well, but with an amp, I was no longer concerned with volume, and I actually now find full sizes to be as portable as in ears.
Summary: For the price I thought they would be a bit better. The materials are nothing special. The cable is kind of cheap but I do know in their newest version of it the cable is improved. I think you need an amp for these which is never something I want to do. From what I hear though klipsch has moved back to the US and I hope that means they will put out more impressive models. I still enjoyed it but I was left not satisfied. They are comfortable though.
Summary: I have been using these headphones almost every day for the better part of a year and they have proven to be very reliable. I did have to get them replaced about a week after I bought them for what sounded like a ripped cone in the left ear but no problems since, most likely a fluke since I haven't heard of the problem from anyone else. Bass notes are strong and mids are adequate, highs leave a bit to be desired but they produce an overall accurate sound.
Pros: Nice bang for the buck, comfortable, bass response
