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.
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.
