Suprising performance

Tyler Z., Newegg
24 May 2013
  • Summary: At first I was quite disappointed with these. I felt that they were properly isolating the noise and thought I had the right size isolators on but decided to try the large size and wow, what a difference. The bass finally showed up and I was quite impressed. At lower volumes these earbuds are very nice and clear and I love my highs so they sound fantastic. However, at high volumes they get incredibly bright almost to the point of being painful.
  • Pros: Great response, incredible volume, crystal clear highs, strong lows
  • Cons: Rubber isolators feel kind of cheap and thin compared to many of my other earbuds and after wearing them for long periods of time at work get uncomfortable. Very bright and almost need an EQ to pull them into a more comfortable frequency response.

update

Darren C., Newegg
23 May 2013
  • Summary: I will likely have to find a different pair of headphones. The only way I can stand to use these anymore is to sit motionless.
  • Pros: Okay sound.
  • Cons: The cords create sound when rubbed or bumped against any object such as clothing and chairs. This sound transfers along the cords to your ears. Even subtle movements such as the expansion of my chest from breathing creates noise that is much louder than the audio from my phone.

Not bad...for earbuds.

John Y., Newegg
11 May 2013
  • Summary: I bought these on sale at radio shack for $41. I could never see myself paying $80 for these. Don't get me wrong, these are nice ear buds, but that's all they will ever be. Don't buy any ear buds expecting them to be anything like over-ear headphones. If you are used to those and don't spend hundreds of dollars on ear buds, you are going to be disappointed, period. These are very nice for someone who doesn't want to lug around big headphones all the time.
  • Pros: Very good dynamic range, very articulate and clean sound, very comfortable, decent quality.
  • Cons: Carrying case is very cheap, bass leaves some room for improvement, a little bit to expensive.

Average

Darren C., Newegg
9 May 2013
  • Summary: I read some reviews that said these headphones have good bass. I don't hear it. They don't have a tinny sound either. It's just that they sound average to me. I'm probably not the best judge of sound quality. But, my old Koss headphones seemed to have more bass and my cheap Sony headphones seem to have about the same overall sound quality. I own Klipsch floor speakers for my house. I'm a fan of Klipsch. I'm not dissatisfied with the headphones, per se.
  • Pros: They are comfortable. They sound okay.
  • Cons: I've observed one flaw. The wire insulation is made of a nice rubbery material that gives the cords a nice feel to touch and hold. It feels like high quality material. Unfortunately, when the wires are bumped or rubbed against clothing and other obstacles, it seems to transfer sound to headphones. It's kinda hard to explain. But, unless I'm sitting perfectly still, I get unwanted noise from the wires rubbing my shirt. This is not electrical interference. It's a physic...

Maintains the Klipsch Standard

Shane T., Newegg
27 April 2013
  • Summary: I paid slightly less than half of MSRP and I whole heartedly believe I got a steal. I believe the MSRP is a bit high for what you get.
  • Pros: These ear buds are crystal clear. They do not have the muffled sound that factory ear buds have. I have tried, and I mean really tried get these things to clip, but no luck. I did manage to make my ears ring. The noise reduction works better than expected. I work in an office and at 50% volume I can not hear someone standing next to me talking. These headphones perform differently with each genre of music, please see below. Comfort on the headphones is great, I have w...
  • Cons: Cable - It seems like regardless of what I purchase from Klipsch, the cable is a pain. It tangles way too easy. It loves to roll on itself. The legth is great, except for when I have a tangled mess in the middle.

Weak Jack Design

David F, B&H Photo
27 April 2013
  • Excerpt: These headphones sound good but the flex design of the jack allows the wires to break. I have broken two pair in about 4 months and I'm not talking about rough handling. Repeated flexing of the wire leads to failure of one or both channels. I have tried to get another pair from Klispch but no luck this third time. Kind of disappointing from a quality name like Klispch. I'll buy another brand next time.
  • Cons: Flimsy Construction

Horrible

  • Pros: Great highs and mids
  • Cons: First day I tried them out, the bass was fuzzy like their is a tiny rip in the material or something. It has gotten progressively worse.
