Product Description

From the Manufacturer

These high-performance, yet affordable, earphones make it possible to achieve that "front row, center stage" feeling anywhere and everywhere you go; no matter what you are doing.

Kliphsch Custom-1 earphones'
soft, oval silicon tips reduce ear fatigue


Great Comfort

Featuring a black soft-feel paint finish with off-white lettering on the earbuds, Custom-1 earphones utilize dark gray patent-pending Contour Ear Gels that are anatomically designed to accurately fit inside the human ear canal. These soft, oval silicon tips reduce ear fatigue as well as provide an amazing seal for excellent noise isolation and bass response. Because ear canal measurements vary, Custom-1 comes with five different washable ear gel sizes: small, medium, and large single flange designs as well as small and large double flange designs. Extra small sizes are available through the Klipsch website. This variety of size options allows these earphones to fit more of the population than any other earphones on the market today.

For perfect exterior comfort, flexible ear wires bend over and around the ears so they can be customized to each user. And not only do these adaptable wires provide optimal comfort, they also let users experience full or partial noise isolation—a great safety feature for on-the-go users. Just pull the ear gels out of the ear canals and adjust the wires to firmly position the earphone nozzles over the canals.


Several tip sizes and a cleaning kit always ensure a clean,
comfortable fit
Great Sound

Wherever you go, Custom-1 earphones allow stunningly precise audio to go with you. The exclusive KG332 balanced armatures generate deeper bass, more robust midrange, and clearer high notes for that true-to-life listening experience only Klipsch audio earphones can deliver.

Great Durability

Klipsch has gone to great lengths to ensure the long-lasting durability of Custom-1 earphones, up to and including its 50-inch-long cables. Put through extensive "real world" testing, these headphones feature appropriate strain relief at every cable connection point to help prevent wire damage. Plus, underneath the cable's black cloth weaving, a special PVC Wireguard jacket prevents the wires from becoming exposed and frayed.

Complete Features and Added Frills

Klipsch Custom-1 earphones have precise audio performance and a secure personalized fit for active lifestyles. With unparalleled comfort and exceptional durability these earphones can go the extra mile with you wherever you may go with any number of portable devices such as iPods, the iPhone and virtually any device with a headphone jack. These earphones come with a compact high-quality vinyl carrying case, five sets of ear gels, and an ear tip cleaning tool.

I am returning them and don't know what ones to buy.
Dan Kucala
The problem with those is they are long, and if you lay down, or touch your head/hair they poke out of your ears and can hurt or move.
D. Gray
I am disappointed these earphones do not meet that expectation.

Klipsch Custom-1 In-Ear Noise Isolating Earphone
So I ignored the reviews (being a lover of Klipsch products) and bought these. I really wanted the Custom-3 version but decided to err on the side of caution and purchase the Custom-1. These things are badly designed for ears. Do not buy them. I have several pair of in-ear earphones from Shure's E3Cs, Etymotic Research ER6i and a pair of Ultimate Ears 5EB ear phones. I also have some cheap Sony and other miscellaneous models. So I know how to use these and what they should sound like. These things refuse to stay planted. I have tried every pair of tips to no avail. As soon as I open my mouth, I lose sound in one ear or the other. Or 3-5 steps into my jog and one or both fall out of my ears. Screwing them into my ears gets a better seal but poorer sound. I looked closely at them and it appears that the ear plug is on a long stem that points at a 45 degree or so angle upwards. This is a bad fit for my ears. YMMV but I sincerely think these things are a bad design. The next problem is the main reason I purchased these Klipsch ear phones. The fabric covered wired. I love my Shure E3Cs but the wire becomes hard after a while and eventually cracks and causes a short in the earphone. This has happened 4 times to me. I noticed that fabric covered wire also seemed less prone to tangles (the reason I don't use my Etymotics. The thin cable always tangles and has frayed badly).
The fabric cable on these earphones are horrible. The wire is extremely thin and stiff so it is still prone to bad tangles (not as bad as others but bad enough).

I was excited for these headphones, I read positive reviews and expected great sound quality & comfort. Sadly, I this was not the case.

Quite simply, these headphones don't fit in my ears right. I've tried all of the included inserts - none of them really give a good seal. When you get a proper seal, these headphones sound great - but for me, that is very rarely the case, and I've been using these for almost a year now. If I do get a good seal, I have to stay still, or they'll come out - don't bother walking with these headphones, they'll sound terrible.

Its a shame. When properly fitted, they sound good, and have excellent outside noise cancellation. Unfortunately that just doesn't happen very often.

I purchased these specifically to use under a motorcycle helmet. I wanted something that would stay in place and offer decent sound insulation. While I do like these quite a bit with the included silicon tips for just sitting at a desk at work and listening to music, I didn't find that the silicon tips did a very good job once you started moving around. Paired up with some 3rd party foam tips (like comply foam) it works very well for my purpose. I will say that with the silicon tips and the over the ear design, you can kind of "dangle" them so that you can hear music while still hearing everything going on around you, kind of handy at work. With the foam tips these offer excellent sound insulation, it's like wearing earplugs. The design fits my ears very well and makes it easy to put my helmet on without knocking the headphones out of position. Sound quality is just fine for my uses.

I lived in Chicago and took the bus and train to work. I needed earphones that would eliminate background noise and allow me to listen to my music/podcasts. The klipsch custom 1 earphones do just that. It is vital that you get a good seal however, if you want to experience the noise isolation. Klipsch gives plenty of opportunities to find the right ear piece fit by providing multiple earpieces with the product. Sound quality is very good and comparable to the Bose earphones. I was able to listen to music with the volume turned only halfway up on the bus and train with little to no background noise.

My only complaint is that since these headsets are noise isolating when you get a seal it is a lot like plugging your ears with your fingers. So of course chewing gum or eating can be heard, while you are listening to music. The effect of this is not too bad, but can get annoying when the volume is turned down. Overall this is a great product and does exactly what I was looking for. Great sound quality with little to no background noise.

I've had the klipsch custom 1's for about 3 weeks and i absolutely love them. I previously had some shure's that had broken, i really think the klipsch are much better made. The cord on the klipsch headphones are really nice, they're made of clothe. The problem i had with the shure's was the cord that goes over your ear started to break where it bent. I don't think the custom 1's will have this problem because of the pliable plastic over that part of the cord. I am not an audiophile, i'm just an average music listener, but i think these headphones sound great. They also isolate the sound well so they're great for train rides on the el in chicago. Overall i'm very satisfied with my purchase. Buy them on Amazon, not from apple, I saved about $40.
