"I've been using Klipsch's top-of-the-line X10s for months now. Aside from being the most comfortable in-ear headphones I've ever used, the X10s are some of the most amazing-sounding in-ear headphones I've ever used. You have never really heard massively deep bass through headphones until you've experienced X10s. They sell for $349, and in my book are worth every penny."

?Klipsch Images are, hands down, the most comfortable and easy-to-use in-ear headphones we?ve ever tested.?

Full Review


Playback (05/30/2008)
?One of the Image?s greatest strengths is its ability to convey low-level sonic information in a pure, believable, cohesive way. Harmonics, overtones, and other small details always sound like natural organic extensions of the voices from which they originate. It?s a subtle quality that quickly becomes addictive.?

"The Klipsch Images aren't just about comfort and looks, they also pack a pretty good punch when it comes to sound quality. In fact I was quite surprised by how full a sound the Images produce, considering just how tiny the single driver is - there's an impressive amount of bass response on offer, which of course in aided by the excellent seal produced by those silicone tips.

"The contour ear gels are definitely some of the best silicone tips I have ever tried. Insertion was easy and the seal was tight yet still extremely comfortable."

"Overall the Klipsch Images are a very articulate pair of earphones that makes most kinds of music shine. The tonal balance is also pleasing and makes them easy to listen to. Nothing sound particularly bad on these in-ears, they are good at almost everything and truly excel when it comes to rock and pop in my opinion."

"That Klipsch has put a lot of work into the design of these earphones is pretty easy to spot. They look way better than any other in-ear I have ever seen. I never thought I would say this about an in-ear, but these look cool and stylish - definitely not your usual dorky looking phones."

" ... we think noise-isolating headphones such as the Image sound better, clearer, and more accurate than active noise-canceling headphones ..."
Jr. Audioholics (02/25/2008)
"The Klipsch earphones completely shut out the noises around me. It was remarkable. ... The noise-isolation quality of Image was pretty close to the active noise-cancellation effect in my full size headphones. But the real difference was the comfort."

"There were actually times while listening to the Klipsch Image earphones that I could swear I felt a kick drum in my chest, much like I would while listening to large speakers paired with a great subwoofer. That is how great the low end is on these incredibly small earphones!"
