Summary: I admit that these are my first pair of IEMs That did not come free with an iPod, but the reason for this is part of the Klipsch benefits; I have what must be the smallest ear canals in the world, I have never been able to find and IEMs that fit me.
Summary: I received a pair of these from klipsch for free because I had to replace my s4's 4 times because of the rubber strain relief splitting so I ended up getting these x10i's and am having the same strain relief issue, I emailed the guy from Klipsch to let him know what happened and he sent me a new pair and told me to mail him the pair that was messed up, he told me he would make me a label, so I got the new pair in the mail and emailed him to let him know to make the label...
Summary: Good sound for a in ear set, compared to cheaper ones you can definitely feel the difference, but don't expect miracles, after all they are in-ear headphones. I bought them for 100£ so it was an OK deal, i wouldn't be happy at all to pay 300£ (which is the original price) for these. A few notes: the cables seems very fragile, and the isolation is not perfect. But overall for 100£ is a good buy.
2nd set of these, and at the price well worth the effort.

Summary: The sound on the x10i is excellent, needs a good 40 hours to burn in though, and the tips are great. This is my second set, wanted to have a new set as back up. Yes they can fail at the joints but my other set is 3 years old and has been hammered and is still going strong if getting a bit dodgy.
Thought I'd made a terrible error, but fixed with better tips

Summary: I spend an awful lot of my life listening to music, or being on calls, on my iPhone. I had for the previous couple of years been using SkullCandy Full Metal Jacket (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Skullcandy-Jacket-In-Ear-Earbud-Headphones/dp/B004P1IU20/ref=sr_1_7?
Summary: The only expensive earbuds I've bought, so can't really compare them to others. So happy with the sound I bought replacements when I broke the first pair after three years use by pulling on the wires accidentally.
