Summary: This is my second actual IEM purchase, and I have to say, I'm very surprised. These have a more enjoyable and pleasurable listening experience compared to the Shure SE425, which sounded dry and lifeless in my opinion.
The Klipsch X10s have bass extension to die for.
Pros: Unbelievable bass, perfect treble, not siblilant, fits pretty much any ear size.
Cons: Nothing really, pressure on ears feels weird.
Summary: I carry these everywhere with my IPOD Classic. It's hifi on the move, especially on trains. They give a clear full-range sound and the isolation from the double flanged tips is very good. They are very comfortable to wear compared to the Senheiser and Bose IE's I had previously.

Build Quality / Fit,
On the build quality the X10 is very well built imo. The housings are made of aluminium and I also think because they're so small that they'll last longer.
Pros: great bass, smooth detailed mids and highs, good soundstage width and 3D presentation and good isolation
Summary: I have some current Senn IE80s and I think the x10s sound better and are far more comfortable IMO. These are underated. I like them enough that I have bought 6 pair due to losing them or wear and tear and I buy the X10i with iphone controls @ $200+ a pop. Thats how much I like them.
Pros: Very detailed balanced good sound, extremely comfortable. I can wear them for 6 hours at work without knowing they are on, great noise isolation
Cons: some microphonics, had a few pair develop shorts in the wires.
Summary: Those earphones are very nice, strong tight bass, mids are detailed but a bit lacking, highs are very smooth. Soundstage is ok, but I don't have much experience on it (worse than IE8 for sure). I love the warm sound, and it really reveals low quality compressed songs. The build fells fragile.
Pros: Amazing bass, nice smooth highs, small, very comfortable, block out lot of noise
Summary: Being priced at a staggering $349 these in-ears are for people looking for some excellent earphones which can be enjoyed both from a sonically and aesthetic point of view. That being said these in-ears are different than most because they offer a warmer and lusher sound than most, however, this very...
Pros: Good looking design, Contour ear gels, Comfort, Bundle, Performance, Special sound signature, Really good bass performance, Natural and forgiving sound characteristic
Summary: The Image X10s are tiny. Real, ant-like, those-can’t-be-headphones small. For some, this may be enough to convince them to part with the cash for them: little headphones are easy to carry and put less pressure on your ears, so they’re comfortable for longer.
Klipsch Image X10 In-ear Ohrhörer der Referenz-Klasse
27 October 2009
Conclusion: Die Klipsch Image X10 spielen nicht nur in der absoluten Oberliga mit, beim Vergleich mit dem Mitbewerb wird die Luft für die Konkurrenz sehr dünn. Der hier von Klipsch gebotenen Qualität haben andere Hersteller wenig bis gar nichts entgegenzusetzen.
Pros: Erstklassiger, natürlicher und dynamischer Klang, sehr klein und leicht, hoher Tragekomfort
