Product Description

Color: With microphone

From the Manufacturer

Among the world’s smallest, lightest in-ear headphone designs, the Klipsch Image X10i Headset employs a wealth of micro-technology for long-wearing comfort and audiophile-quality listening. Plus, it includes an advanced microphone and 3-button remote for taking calls and controlling the music content on your iPod, iPod touch or iPhone 3GS.


Superior sound quality and crystal-clear calls
with long-wearing comfort
Superior Design for Clear Calls and Sonic Bliss
Based on the highly acclaimed Klipsch Image X10 headphones, the X10i offers the absolute best in Klipsch style, sound comfort and fit. It caters to discriminating, on-the-go listeners who are constantly playing music and taking phone calls.

Inside each ear piece, which is made of machined aluminum and finished in anodized copper, you’ll find an exclusive full-range armature micro-speaker with a tuned bass-reflex system that delivers lifelike dynamics, sonic clarity and booming bass.

The X10i positions its in-line microphone and remote at the yoke--where the two cables meet at chest level--to create a more natural feel when answering calls and controlling music. Because the microphone is a highly intelligible 360-degree design, you don’t have to talk down into it or hold it close to your mouth. The microphone also features echo cancellation, which keeps it from picking up surrounding noise, so you’ll always be heard crystal clear.


Make calls and control your portable player with ease
Luxurious, Long-Wearing Comfort
It doesn’t matter how great a pair of headphones sound if they are painful to wear. Unlike traditional, circular-shaped ear tips that put stress on the pressure points inside your ear, the X10i utilizes patented oval ear tips that naturally fit the shape of your ear canals. This makes them extremely comfortable and virtually impossible to feel. Additionally, these exclusive ear tips produce a perfect acoustic seal, which minimizes outside noise so you can enjoy your music at lower, safer volumes.

Expanded Compatibility, Including Apple iPhone 3GS
While the Image X10i serves as a pair of premium headphones for any device with a 3.5mm headphone jack, its microphone and remote system handles the music and voice control of the following Apple products: iPhone 3GS, third generation iPod shuffle, second generation iPod touch, fourth and fifth generation iPod nano models and the iPod classic 120GB. If you have an iPod touch or iPhone and Wi-Fi access, you can also use the Image X10i with VOIP (need an adapter for PC or Mac), Skype and iChat.

What’s in the Box
Included with the Image X10i In-Ear Headset is a faux-leather carrying case, compact carrying pouch, 1/4-inch adaptor for home stereos, airline adaptor, five sizes of patented ear-tips and an ear-tip cleaning tool.

What the Experts Are Saying

“In many ways, the Image X10i Headset mirrored the sound of Klipsch's WF-34 floor-standing loudspeakers. Both are extremely clean, crisp, detailed and fast.”

“The phones have laser-like precision and open the door to the smallest details of every recording. They are also very comfortable and so light that one can listen for hours without mechanical fatigue.”

“The Image X10is make a strong case for being “the reference” in-ear headphones. Overall, the Image X10is offer excellent dynamics, clarity and definition. Their combination of comfort and way with music makes for an easy recommendation. Simply put, they are the best in-ear headphones I've heard.”


--Todd Whitesel, AudioVideo Revolution (avrev.com), March 2010

"Definitely the best sounding consumer-grade in-ear headphones I’ve ever listened to. The price tag matches the sound quality however. If you want good audio fidelity on your phone headset, you’ll be hard pressed to find something better than these."

-- Jimin Brelsford, CrunchGear.com, March 2, 2010

Color Name: With microphone
If you read my wordy review of the Klipsch S4i headphones back in July, you already know how impressed I've been with Klipsch's headphones. Sadly, after around 800 hours of use, I managed to short out the left channel. Legendary for their customer service, Klipsch of course was ready to send me out a replacement pair. However, I had another idea. Instead of replacing my Image S4i headphones with another pair, I decided to upgrade to the Klipsch Image X10i, the S4i's big brother only, some how, much MUCH smaller.

These being the world's smallest headphones, they're also amongst the most comfortable. They are, in fact, the most comfortable in-ear headphones I have ever owned, beating out even the Klipsch S4i. The five, unique ear tips include three single flange, small, medium and large tips and medium and large double flange tips. The S4i includes the same tips but not the larger double flange ear tips.

The ear tips have an unique oval shape for both easy insertion, comfort and exceptional noise isolation. I use the medium, double flange ear tips and by the third track I've forgotten they are even in. They are just that comfortable.

Pretty enough to propose

You can tell these are luxury headphones, if not by the price or performance, by the exquisite packaging. While the display box may be a bit superfluous, after $350. Possibly the greatest bit of luxury in the accessories arena is the carrying pouch. Calling it a pouch is like calling a Mercedes a car. It's much more than the fabric pouch provided with the S4i, this is a hard, faux-leather wrapped rectilinear box with magnetic locking flap. I'll have to take a picture of it.

Color Name: Without microphone Verified Purchase
I bought these after reading the many glowing reviews from audiophiles online. Despite their relatively high price, I was impressed enough by the fit and sound to feel great about my purchase. However, just over 30 days from my purchase, the left side stopped working. It is clearly an issue with one of the wires making intermittent contact somewhere near the male plug. I contacted Klipsch and forwarded their service department a copy of my online receipt only to be informed that Amazon & their stores are not authorized distributors of Klipsch products. As a result, Klipsch would not honor their warranty. I naturally contacted Amazon who informed me that after 30 days, they wash their hands of all transactions. So I am out a lot of money and have nothing to show for it. Headphones that retail for $300+ shouldn't have build quality issues, and when they do, you would expect either the OEM and / or the distributor to support their patrons. No compromise or even an offer to attempt a repair. I am somewhat shocked. Neither Klipsch nor Amazon even cracked the door open for a resolution. No ability to speak to a manager or escalate my issue. I badly want to replace them, but out of principle just can not bring myself to do it.

Here's the review I did in May 2008:

"5 Stars

"After trying Shure, Koss, Sony, these are the best

"They are light. They fit my ear (no other in-the-ear model fits my ear). They don't fall out. They do a good job in blocking external sounds. They are compact. For the size, sound quality is excellent. While active sound blocking systems (such as Bose) will do a better job blocking sound, the trade-off in bulk is just not worth it. These are expensive, but they cost less than all the money I spent on other models that fell short of the mark."

Here's what I am saying now:

After a few months of use, the rubber from the cord to the earphone split on both earphones. I wrote Klipsch and they told me to return to dealer. Hoping that this was a one-time event, I went through the hassle of returning. SAME THING HAPPENED AGAIN. This is too costly to keep doing this, so I recommend STAY AWAY. Good sound not worth the falling apart.

I would have expected that Klipsch would have asked me to look at the problem so they could fix it (wouldn't you if you were interested in quality control?). But, no, just asked to return to dealer.

EDIT: I've gotten a few comments mentioning this review isn't for various other headphones. Amazon has lumped all the Klipsch headphone comments into a single area for some reason, so you'll find reviews for Custom 1, 2, 3, X5, X10, etc all mashed in together. My review here is for the Klipsch X10 (named "Image" when I got them).

This review runs a little long, because it was originally written for a forum [...] where I wrote this in a progressive "here's how my thoughts have evolved" format, and copy / pasted here. It largely reads as a blog/diary of my chronological usage and ends up reading rather long. Short answer is hearty thumbs-up. 5 stars.

------------------------
I just got my Klipsch Image IEMs in the mail last night. I've been tremendously excited about getting them, lusting through the weeks after any scrap of information I could get on them until that frightening moment I clicked the "Buy" button. So, I'm not pretending to review these objectively yet, I'm still in the "they're here! they're here!" phase, but I thought it would be interesting to document my observations as they evolve, as they have done in the hours that I've spent with the Images so far.

Current overall impression (with over a month of use): 9.5 out of 10 stars

Some background:
About a year and a half ago, I had a brief encounter with a pair of Shure E4c IEMs. Bought them used off craigslist, sold them the same way. I didn't like how they felt. Didn't like the sound. Not enough bass. Excellent for Vivaldi, not so much for M.I.A. But mostly, I couldn't stand to wear them for more than half an hour at a time, and then I had to spend a couple minutes each time trying to get them in properly. Not a convenient IEM, not the sound I wanted.
