4.0 out of 5 stars Hopefully the durability issues are fixed, 28 Nov. 2013
This review is from: Klipsch X11i In-Ear Headphones with 3-button control and Microphone - Black (Electronics)
Just received these after the X10's had a problem with the casing around where the wire meets the ear piece and i had to send them back. A common problem apparently and I had only had them for less than a year!
[...]
The reason I went for these is because they are supposed to have kevlar reinforced wires, however, looking at the earpiece they look moulded in exactly the same way. Hopefully I am wrong about this because the sound reproduction is excellent, the durability....not so much.

The X11i have the same sound signature as the x10s so dont know how people are saying they sound different:
[...]
What is the difference between the old X10i and the new X11i?
The X11i is identical to the iconic X10i with a few subtle improvements - The cables on the X11i are square instead of round to be tangle-resistant, and the cables are also re-inforced with Kevlar for added strength and robustness. The tail has been improved by being made of a tougher durometer of elastomer to prevent breakage. The color of the aluminum housing is now dark silver instead of copper. The same great acoustics that the X10i is known for are identical to the X11i, as well as the fit and comfort.

On to a few notes:
- As mentioned by a previous reviewer we could have done without the tacky logo on the back on the control box which in itself looks a bit cheap. Hope it holds together, would have preferred them without this.
- The cable is square not flat.
- They have actually removed the earwax cleaning accessory for some reason,cant say i ever used this though.
- The box, while looking nice is a challenge to get into.

Obviously cant give 5 stars yet because of previous durability issues but the sound quality is superb, just make sure you use a good source because low quality bitrate is really noticeable and painful to listen to.

Hi
Would love to know how you are getting on with these nearly 6 months on? I am deliberating whether or not to purchase and cant justify this kind of money if they're not top notch!!
Thanks in advance
Charl

Hi Charlotte.
Having used them extensively for the last 6 months I am happy to say the cables are still as good as new and there are no visible signs of wear and tear. The audio signature is typically fantastic.
