This review is from: Klipsch Image X10i Noise Isolating In-Ear Headset with 3-Button Mic for iPhone / iPod - Black (discontinued by manufacturer) (Electronics)
I found out about these X10i headphones from Klipsch after reading What Hifi's previous 'headphone of the year' awards - with these being the winner in 2010. The review was very favourable, however my issue was the price tag at the time, £250, was out of reach at the time. However, by chance I stumbled across these a couple of months ago and the price was just £122 from Amazon delivered. They had to be bought. Anyway to cut a long story short, these headphones are a steal at this price-point. The sound is very neutral, but still with deep bass when required and refined highs, making for a fantastic listening experience. I listen to a wide variety of genres and I can safely say these headphones are as versatile as headphones get, from house to jazz to rock these can do it all. However, what sets these headphones apart from a very crowded market is the sheer comfort they give the listener. The X10i's are incredibly small and light - it seems impossible that headphones this small can produce such a full and well balanced sound. Comfort wise these are as comfortable as in-ear headphones go, the small size, small weight, and oval-shaped rubber earphone tips (which actually work very well) create an unrivaled seal and comfort level - you'll forget they are in your ears after a couple of minutes! Also note that there are 5 ear tips to choose from in the box, so all but the most oddly shaped ear canals will be catered for. The aesthetics of the headphone should also be mentioned - these headphones look great. Whether in your ears or in front of you, they look contemporary but still smart, avoiding the cheap and nasty looks of some other high-quality headphones. Other reviewers have commented on here have commented about the cables being easy to break, I can't say I've had any problems though, and the headphones come with a 2-year warranty in case something does go wrong. Overall I would whole-heartedly recommend these headphones for those people that like their music, and who like to listen in comfort.
