Summary: These were one of my first high-end earphone purchases, and it did not disappoint.
Before buying, there are a few things to consider regarding the Klipsch Image range. I was looking at the X5 and the X10, as both had good reviews.
Excerpt: Klipsch’s X5 earbuds are little bullet-shaped ‘buds that, despite weighing next-to-nothing, deliver big booming sound. Like many other earbuds we’ve tested, the X5s must be inserted deep into your head to create a sound-isolating seal in the ear canal.
Pros: Big can audio quality in the guise of wee earbuds. Sharp sound and sharp design. 0.398-ounce weight? What are these things made out of, aerogel?
Cons: You’ve got to push (and I mean really push) the buds into dangerously deep areas of your ear to make them work properly. Cinching the cable to keep them tied down will make you look ridiculous.
