Summary: There is no sugar-coating it, this 'phone has a dominant low end and a murky one at that. I find that with some eq'ing I can get a pretty good sound out of these but there is no hiding the bass heavy bias.
Great controls and design. I never realized how handy it is to go wireless until I got these. Very light and comfortable. Not totally isolating but mutes surrounding noise enough while alowing you to stay aware of your surroundings.
Summary: Klipsch very typically has solid, strong and sometimes overwhelming mids and lows without much attention to highs. The same can be said for these headphones. Clarity and volume is impeccable but bass can be overbearing especially with iPhone's EQ turned off. I would recommend using Treble Booster or Bass Reducer on the iPhone EQ, or get the Bose Triports for the same price. No settings required and it sounds amazing out of the box!
Excerpt: Ive been on the search for perfect headphones for my loud commute on public transportation. My requirements were high audio fidelity, iPhone controls, and closed cans or noise-cancelling for sound isolation, since I cant stand the feel of in-ear monitors or earbuds. I bought the Klipsch Image Ones based on positive reviews by users, brand name recognition, and a great sale on the product.
Excerpt: I listen mostly to folkAmericana w some indie mixed in. The bass in these headphones drowned out the vocals and the gentler instrumentation. However, listened to them on a piece of Peter Gabriel music that was designed to be bass heavy, and I felt like I was in the concert hall. I think theyre not the right headphones for me, but if you listen to more suitable types of music, you may want to give them a try.
Excerpt: I love to listen to music and watch films and so to me, having good headphones is essential, earphones are ok but sometimes headphones are nice too, even just having the option. I think with there being so many brands nowadays it can be quite hard to narrow down what is actually worth the money and what is on trend.
Klipsch Image One On-Ear Headphones: High Quality Sound
14 August 2013
Summary: I love to listen to music and watch films and so to me, having good headphones is essential, earphones are ok but sometimes headphones are nice too, even just having the option. I think with there being so many brands nowadays it can be quite hard to narrow down what is actually worth the money and what is on trend.
Summary: These headphones are reasonably priced with an awesome quality. I compared them to Studio (Beats) by Dr Dre that cost four times but I didn't notice much of difference. HOWEVER they are not comfortable for long time use. I noticed that after 20 mins my ears get sore and I have to constantly reposition them to avoid the pain. This eventually led me to go and return them despite the fact that I really liked them!
Summary: I finally had my last straw with my in-ear earphones constantly having to be pushed back in my ears at least once a minute and took the plunge and bought a pair of these. They are nice and light and appear well made and comfort is good, although they do press on the sides of my head quite a bit, but maybe I've just got a big head! I have very wide ranging taste in music, from rock and pop to classical and opera.
Summary: I bought these as part of the current Black Friday promotion at more than 30% less than the normal Amazon price. After using them for only a short while I would make the following observations: PLUSES a) Excellent build quality and in a very useful case for use when travelling, and which includes both a large diameter jack plug converter plus a twin pin jack for use in aircraft seats b) The in-line controls on the connection lead work well on my iPod and iPad (but not on...
