Summary: Well worth every penny I spent on these!!
Pros: Wonderful signal response from 10Hz to 39KHz. The dynamic sound from these put you right in the middle of it all. The new flat cable doesn't snag or get tangled which is a very big plus in my book. They might be spendy but you get what you pay for!
Cons: Expensive for the non-music lover/audiophile.
Excerpt: Long time UE fan and have recently switched to these. These are a perfect balance of fit, style, and performance. Most notably with the ear shape and the flat cord. Performance wise these are on par with other > $ earbuds. The complaints about bass are unfounded in my experience.
Pros: Comfortable, Easy To Use, Great Sound Quality
Excerpt: I bought this product to use with the iPod under a helmet on my Harley rides. I previously purchased the S4i II and found it to be the best at the time compared to so many other expensive brands as it had a good blend of treble, and bass which could be heard in spite of the Harley rumble.
Excerpt: I wrote 2 reviews under hollywood king and 90210 king and gave it a 5 star. The item broke down on me in 5 months. KIPSCH HAS the worst customer service. The item was under warranty and it has taken them 4 weeks to process the warranty. Don't waste your money on this item and Klipsch.
Cons: Falls Off/Out Of Ear, Flimsy Construction, Poor Sound, Poor Value, Too Much Ambient Noise, Uncomfortable
Excerpt: I'm going on my third pair of Image X7i headphones. Not because I like them so much, but because they keep breaking. I bought my first pair in the fall, and within 7 months I've gone through 3 pairs. They are comfortable, stylish, and sound great, but one side keeps cutting out. LAME.
Excerpt: These new headphones are actually not as good as the 4i model I bought 18 months ago. For the price tag, I have no idea what the manufacturer thinks is better! This would get one star but I like the flat cord.
Sounds great, build quality could be better though.

Summary: I have owned several pairs of the Klipsch S4's and now this pair of X7i's. These sound very good, much clearer and more defined than the S4's. Unfortunately, this will be my last pair of Klipsch headphones.
Summary: One of the best-looking headphones on the market that feel even better in your hands. The ceramic casing feels solid and has an elegant polish to it. They can be worn over-ear to reduce the (unfortunately high) cable noise, or when doing sports.
