Conclusion: Klipsch's Image X10i isn't the cheapest pair of mic-equipped earphones you can find, but an excellent listening experience, solid design, and seamless iPhone operation make it well worth the price.
Pros: Excellent audio performance. Lightweight and secure fit. "Works with iPhone"-certified.
Cons: Expensive. Flatter response; not for heavy-bass lovers. Some cable thump.

Pros: Outstanding bass, treble, clarity and imaging, Incredibly lightweight and small, Five comfortable ear tips deliver superb fit, Built-in mic and three-button remote
Cons: Midrange can sound slightly buried, Average mic out of place on high-end headphones
