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 Earbuds Deliver Fine Sound When Pushed Hard

Wired
3 July 2008
  • 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. We’re prepared to tickle our eardrums a little, sure, but because these ‘buds are so small and sharp, it’s not clear when you’ve got a proper seal or are about to poke yourself in the brain.
  • 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.
