"Overall, I was thrilled with the headphones. They are a significant improvement compared to the Apple in-ear models and offer a wonderful sound. Not surprising when you look at the price difference [between the two headphones] of just under 100 €, the sound of the Klipsch X10 is significantly better than the cheaper S4i, which still trumps other models. The difference is really only in direct comparison to each other."

"The Klipsch Image X10i headphones are the best looking, most comfortable wearing, and best-sounding ear buds I have ever used...If you’re in the market for a high-end musical sound from a pair of in-ear-phones, you have to hear these. Even if you never thought you would like anything but headphones you should try these - you won’t believe how good they sound and how comfortable they are."

"Headphones this size have absolutely no business sounding as good as they do. We have no idea what kind of black magic was involved in getting such rich bass from such tiny, tiny buds and we don’t want to know either. However many virgins were sacrificed is best left a mystery. The fact remains that the Klipsch Image X10i sound better than pretty much any in-ear headphones we’ve ever stuffed into our heads. What’s more, the amazing degree of noise isolation is second only to custom fit moulds and all thanks down to some beautifully designed oval ear tips which not only fit your aural canals like an aural glove but are also as comfy to wear as a set of silk undies..."

"...If you've just got the iPhone 3GS or iPhone 4, or a recent iPod however, the X10i's are simply an outstanding choice. If you really want to hear every detail in your music, answer phone calls with a press of the button and have a comfortable listening experience then the X10i's really deliver."

iPhone World (05/03/2010)

"They're tiny, weigh nothing, are super comfortable and sound BIG ... Call quality is good. A wired connection is always better than bluetooth. We had no trouble hearing (obviously), but more importantly, our caller could hear us fine without us having to speak louder than a normal tone of voice."

"At loud volumes, the X10i and Ultimate Ears 700 earbuds sound similar, but the X10i earbuds will deliver an unexpected kick of bass, adding a new dimension to your music. At low levels, the X10i earbuds shine even more. Songs are well-rounded and crisp."
