Summary: Just like fancy lingerie, with top-notch headphones, less always costs more. If you listen to headphones for hours at time, though, the X10’s superb sound quality, comfort and convenience seem less like luxury and more like common sense.
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 feature along with the extravagant design comes at a hefty price tag.
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. The bronze barrels are made from machined aluminium, housing a single balanced armature in each. The cable is ultra light and flexible, and while we had no problems, we have minor concerns over its longevity.
Excerpt: If you're skeptical about the merits of high-end in-ear headphones, insert a pair of the Award-winning X10s and you'll soon change your mind. They've been the benchmark for high-end buds for the past 18 months.

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
