Excerpt: I listen to these for a couple hours a day on average and they are great! I have a portable headphone amp too that I use with them, but even without that they sound fantastic. Fantastic bass response and very clear mids and highs without being in your face. Turn it up and these remain distortion free. The sound stage isn't quite as up front as the likes of the Yamaha Pro500's, but the clarity is darn near as good, and those are much more expensive headphones!
Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound, Stylish
Excerpt: I've had Klipsch products since 1980; this is supremely superior to most headphones on the market both in quality construction and sound. Even at full list price it would be good value, but with discounts it is outstanding. Klipsch used high quality leather, steel, and professional-grade HiFi woven cables (two types) rather than the cheap plastic cables on other brands. I didn't have to adjust my iTunes EQ for great sound as I did with my Bose.
Pros: Comfortable, Durable, Excellent price, Great Sound, Quality Materials, Stylish
Summary: These headphones seem to have great build quality, with tough plastic, metal hinges, and leather earpads. Comes with 2 braided cables. The sound is much much better than the horribly bassy image ones. The sound on the Status is in line with Klipsh' armature iems- slightly warm, rich, decent soundstage. Highs are slightly recessed and not sparkly. these are also not quite circumaural to big ears.
Pros: build quality, mostly balanced sound
Cons: sound still slightly dark, not quite circumaural
Excerpt: I bought previous generation of this headphone when they just came out, in the country where i was (switzerland) it was extremely hard to find them, i had to order them and wait for a long 2 week delivery and though very expensive appx 40 swiss francs. When they arrived i was waiting for signature klipsch sound (i'm a great fan of it) so i thought they will become my best travel companions. BUT they didn't..
Cons: Active Noise Canceling, Poor Sound, Poor Value, Uncomfortable, Very Heavy
Excerpt: I got these headphones for Christmas and I have to say it was the best gift ever. At my job, I wear headphones for most of the day. My previous pair were fine, but these just blow everything I have tried out of the water. The sound quality is incredible - listening to my classic music is a whole new experience! Plus, these are insanely comfortable.
Pros: Comfortable, Great Sound, Lightweight, Stylish
Excerpt: I've had these headphones for about a week now and they are the best over-ear headphones that I've owned. I appreciate their comfort and quality sound. My next purchase will be Klipsh in-ear headphones to replace my stock ipod.
Pros: Comfortable, Good Bass, Great Sound, Stylish
Excerpt: These headphones sound very good. Compared next to the flagship Klipsch IEMs, the x10's, the Status headphones have a more neutral frequency spectrum. Extremely crisp and realistic audio, particularly when listening to acoustic instruments. These headphones sound amazing. However, not everything can be without its flaws.<br /><br />The flaw being related to overall comfort of wearing these things.
Excerpt: I have a large head so finding headphones that are comfortable is tough and these are pretty good. The only two cons I would give these headphones are<br /> <br />1)after an hour or so of listening I have to readjust them because my ears get sore. I still use them for 6 hours at a time but I wish the "over-ear" portion was larger to accommodate my ears. <br /><br />2)I have had them for a little less than a year and today the noise canceling stopped working.
Pros: Comfortable, Compact, Durable, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound
