Excerpt: Compare to x1,. I don't feel this one is an upgrade. Everything is same compare to the previous model except for the bass, which is forwarded. Enhanced bass is not my forte, so i return the product.
Excerpt: These headphones are everything you would expect from a high end pair of in-ear Headphones. The sound is amazing and doesn't overwhelm with base, if you like crazy base sound these are not for you. The headphones are light and you barely notice wearing them even after several hours of use. They fit tight and have never fallen out while exercising. When you do finally take them off Klipsch give you a carry case to store them.
Pros: Comfortable, Compact, Great Sound, Lightweight
Excerpt: Used on my Xperia Smartphone. Sound quallity, comfort and noise isolation (isolation, not cancelling but so good and no batteries) are great - if you have near perfect hearing or appreciate the best sound quality across almost any range and genre of music these are awesome. Nothing bad to say even if some people think the price is a little crazy - they are worth it. : ) B&H service, care and delivery is also very impressive in shipping the items and dealing with customs.
Pros: Comfortable, Compact, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight, Stylish
Summary: I've had Shures in the past and have listened to the 535s and also the Logitech UE900s but wasn't particularly blown away. The Shures are nice, but just not "exciting" enough for a commuter earphone. I have NAD VISO HP50 headphones at home for more critical listening if I fancy it. The Logitechs had a loose connection straight out of the boos so for their price, I was very unimpressed with the quality control.
Klipsch X11i – costs a lot but built as disposable
Mark Twain, Amazon

Summary: Dear Klipsch, If you read it, please pay attention to your products build quality. It sounds great but made really cheap and start falling apart after a few months in use. It costs a lot but made disposable. Totally disappointed. Do not recommend Klipsch X11i to anyone.
Summary: So, after having had my Shure SE315's for about 3 years I decided it was time for an upgrade. I've always been an enormous fan of Shure and was a little sceptical of other makes that people claimed to be just as great. But, I decided to take a leap of faith and grab a pair of these bad boys after having read many a favourable review. Mostly, I use in ear headphones with portable devices and never use any sort of DAC or portable amp.
Summary: The sound quality of these headphones is beyond anything else you can get for this price. They make Beats and Bose sound cheap and tinny! And the fit of the buds is very comfortable and really blocks out other sound. So why the 3 stars? Supposedly Klipsch fixed their durability with the X11s but I've now been using these for 7 months and the cable fixture at the bottom has come out so the wires are bare and just waiting to snap. I had the same problem with the X10s.
Summary: I must start off by saying that I'm not really an audiophile however the sound quality was very good. The thing that has knocked the rating is the poor build quality. After about 3 months of regular but normal use, the 3.5mm jack plastic broke and exposed bare wires.
