Klipsch Image X5

PC Magazine
23 July 2009
  • Conclusion: Klipsch's lightweight Image X5 gives audiophiles who seek flat response—and comfort—a new option.
  • Pros: Excellent audio quality—more flat response than booming bass. Superb in-ear fit. Comfortable. Lightweight.
  • Cons: Expensive. Not for bass fiends. Left and right earphones could be better matched.

Klipsch Image X5

What Hi-Fi?
10 August 2009
  • Excerpt: Unpack the X5s and you'll find no less than five different types of ear buds or ‘comfort ear gels' as Klipsch likes to call them. Irrespective of the name, these buds help turn the X5s into some of the most comfortable in-ears we've ever come across. You also get a magnetic carry pouch, and a cleaning tool for keeping wax out of the way. Which is nice.
  • Pros: Bass possesses much weight, secure and comfortable
  • Cons: Not overtly spacious

Klipsch Image X5 review

Stuff.tv
10 June 2009
  • Summary: Klipsch’s Image X10 headphones are among our favourite sound-isolating in-ears. They sound spectacular despite their minuscule proportions and are about as comfortable as invasive ear-pluggers get. So it was with some trepidation that we approached the X5s. These cheaper, slightly bigger (though still barely there) and silver-er headphones had a serious weight of expectation bearing down on them. Tubular swell Fortunately, our initial impressions were positive.

CNET
21 January 2009

  • Cons: Competing models can offer even deeper bass

  • Excerpt: Klipsch is one of the increasing number of manufacturers of ‘in-ear’ earphones that has realised that the lazy ‘one size fits all’ approach to design is doomed for failure. Thank you for searching out Australian HI-FI Magazine’s equipment review of the Klipsch Image X5 Earphones originally published in Australian Hi-Fi Magazine, Jan/Feb 2009 (Volume 40 Number 1).

  • Conclusion: Thanks to the well-designed ear tips, the Klipsch Image X5 earphones offer great sound isolation — always a good thing in our book, because it lets you listen to your music at lower volumes and preserve your hearing. Since the sleeves aren't round like most, it may take a bit of twisting to get the best fit; if you're having trouble getting a seal, try inserting the 'buds then tugging them out a bit.
  • Pros: Thin, tangle-prone wire that raises some concern for durability, Pricey, Shorter warranty period than competition from Shure
  • Cons: Ultracompact, lightweight, and comfortable, Offer great sound quality, Contoured eartips offer a secure fit with exceptional sound isolation, Plug is uniquely designed for durability, Includes a nifty travel pouch, an aeroplane adaptor, and a cleaning tool

  • Summary: Если вы подыскиваете «вкладыши» с наиболее разборчивым звучанием, то Image X5 - ваш выбор. Гармоническое и пространственное разрешение - лучшее в нашем тесте. Известный американский производитель акустики Klipsch несколько лет тому назад удивил аудиофильское сообщество, начав выпускать вставные наушники. Правда, это серьёзные конструкции с арматурными излучателями и превосходными характеристиками.

  • Summary: Klipsch возлагает на эту модель большие надежды, и Х5 достойны восхищения. У них безупречная ритмичность, делающая звучание невероятно пленительным. В коробке с Х5 вы найдете целых пять насадок различных типов - или «комфортных силиконовых подушек», согласно Klipsch. Как их ни назови, они обеспечивают Х5, возможно, самую удобную посадку среди всех моделей вкладышей, какие мы только видели.
