Better sound than the more expensive bose
Posted by: kenofi from: SW FL on
I have always loved Bose and Klipsh headphones / Speakers. When it came time to get a new set I didn't want to wait for the new R6i to come out so I tried out a few different types of headphones until I could find one I loved. Picked up the Bose and I did like them but if you go into any type of louder environment they don't push out enough volume. That is by design so you have awareness... for me that was a no good.. by the time I returned those the R6i had just come out. I had loved my prior pair of Klipsh (that my cat ate through the wires) so I figured I would give these a try. I LOVE them. Amazing sound, Great comfort, I like the newer flat cord design that my old pair did not have. My only gripe is that they don't come with the Large Double Flange Tips (personal preference)... They do come with a set of small medium and large singles and a small double flange, and they are that cool Oval shape Klipsh is known for. Other than that, I have used them for a few weeks now and find myself using them all the time. Call quality is what you would expect from an inline mic, nothing fancy. Solidly made, its what you would expect to buy from Klipsh, and the fact they are priced (currently) lower than some of they competitors and sound a lot better is just great.

Worth the extra money
Posted by: rareform from: Texas on
I've been eyeballing the Klipsch earbuds every time I go to Best Buy for the last few years yet I've never been able to justify the price. However, I was buying a JBL bluetooth speaker and saw these new headphones, saw they were new after a search on my phone and decided to pull the trigger. I've had 5 pairs of Skullcandy Titans, a pair of the 50/50, Beats touring, Apple Earpods, even those mybuds. I listen primarily to metal, which can be very dense music with a lot going on, so having good headphones is a necessity to fully enjoy my music.
First thing is the comfort, and I assume all Klipsch earbuds share this in common because they use the same tips. Spent 6 hours studying today and I'm still listening to them, I can barely feel them in my ears.
Sound quality is amazing. These are louder than the Earpods, which means I don't need to turn them up very loud. The highs are perfect, I can hear every cymbal on well-mixed songs, and the bass isn't cranked up like on other earbuds I've had where it starts to either sound muffled or overpower everything else. These really shine on well-produced music. For example, I listened to Animals as Leaders song Odessa, and I was able to hear the drums finally, before that I could only hear the double bass.
Build quality is fine, the earbuds have that rubber coating and the cord is flat/ tangle free. However, for the $20 cost to get the R6i vs the R6 one would assume they could have made a better volume control. It works well, don't get me wrong, however it is made of hard plastic. I do powerlifting, so I would probably break these on heavy deadlifts. I broke my last headphones, the Skullcandy 50/50 on my lightest exercise, just have to hit them the wrong way I guess. I won't work out in these, and will keep the Earpods for that since they are indestructible. They are too nice and expensive to risk it.
Overall, very glad I purchased these.

Great earbuds, with a few cons
Posted by: RyanB from: on
I bought these to replace my previous good earbuds (a set of Shure earbuds that ran me about $150). I love Klipsch's products. I have the Promedia 2.1 computer speakers and they're some of the best speakers I've ever owned.
These earbuds are pretty good. The sound is balanced overall and, while is doesn't produce the over-the-top bass that some cheaper buds do, sounds all the better for it. Again, these are earbuds, not full-sized over-the-ear headphones. With speakers this small your expectations have to be realistic. That being said, overall the bass, mid, and treble provide an accurate audio image throughout the frequency spectrum.
The only other shortcoming I found was that I bought these for running. If your only intended use for these is for the gym, I can't recommend them. Rustling the cord transfers sound directly to your ears and they fall out easily with anything more than minimal movement. My advice is to purchase these only if you intend on walking or sitting with them in.
If you're just looking for something to give you quality sound while reading or walking to / riding on public transit, then they're great.

I was led to these earbuds by the claims of stellar sound quality. While these drivers are capable of drawing details and instruments from your favorite tracks that you'd never heard before, they do so on an incredibly narrow and unfulfilling frequency range. I had trouble finding the "thunderous bass" I had read about unless I pressed and held the buds into my ears. Any earbud is going to have more bass when you do this, btw, no matter the price tag. The highs are present but upper treble is non-existant. I've diligently made sure they're snug and fully inserted into my ear canal, tried all tip sizes, cleaned my ears, spent hours trying to find the perfect positioning -- nothing. My stock Samsung earbuds that came with my GS4 sound better, with the exception of providing a little less layering in the sound. This was surprising given the manufacturer's reputation and the $100 price tag.
I think (hope) my ear canals are incompatible with these headphones and this just boils down to a perfectly good product being physically incompatible with my ears. Can't say for sure.
A little about me: I've been an appreciator of good sound since I was a kid, though I don't feel justified calling myself an audiophile because I've never had piles of money to throw at equipment. I appreciate good sound more than I appreciate a brand name. I find the Beats line pretty laughable, if that tells you anything. I'm usually one to keep my opinions to myself, but this time I found myself disagreeing with all these reviews so I thought I'd offer my 2 cents.

Don't buy these
Posted by: mkwhitney from: on
I read the reviews and saw some bad ones but decided to buy anyway for the plane ride from east coast to west coast. These sounded really good and canceled noise out okay.... as long as the cord was completely still, not touching anything. The sound from the cord is RIDICULOUS. I couldn't even listen to these. I pulled out my Apple headphones(and we all know how bad those are). Don't waste your money on these. ALSO the noise cancellation is basically just the headphones blocking your ear canal. If I hummed or sang along to the music there was a super loud echo in my head and I could hear every breath I was taking(similiar to the sound when plugging your ears). I hate these.

Worth the money!
Posted by: Taze from: Peoria, AZ on
I purchased these earbuds specifically to be able to control an iPod Nano 7th gen. I have it in a case and can't feel the buttons on the side so I always end up doing something stupid instead of what I'm trying to do while it's on my waist at the gym. They work great. I've been listening to a pair of Sennheiser earbuds that cost about $80 for 8 years. They are the best sounding earbuds (to me) that I've ever heard. Even after going through the washing machine. The R6i sounds good but different. The high end seems attenuated leaving the sound to me a little more mid heavy which I don't prefer.

Good quality and comfortable
Posted by: Mcan2 from: Washington on
I have problems finding earbuds that fit in my ears, these fit perfectly so they don't fall out when mowing. They have good noise isolation for the money and good sound.

Great headphones for the price...miss the S4's
Posted by: Mauzer92 from: Chicago, IL on
I owned the Klipsch S4's for a number of years (2 or 3) before the cable finally wore out. Unfortuately, Klipsch had just replaced their line of S4's with these. While the sound is still generally the same (though I think it favors bass a touch more than the S4's did).
Whilst walking, the cord does make some noise when it hits your body, however I don't notice it at all when I have the volume turned to a "normal" volume (around 50-60% on my phone). The one MAJOR flaw with this redesigned product is that they fall out...constantly. I am using the same sized tips that I used with my S4's, which would rarely ever fall out (even if the cord was tugged on with reasonable force; more often than not I would get hurt before they would come out. The R6's on the other hand...I'm constantly reaching up to push them back into my ears....constantly. Like, 2-3 times a song constantly (while walking). Additionally I live in Chicago, I take mass transit daily. Any time anyone bumps into me (and subsequently the headphone cord), it is almost guaranteed that one (or both) earbuds fall out. I don't understand why this is, but I wish Klipsch would figure out what went wrong and fix it.

I was tired of the cheap ear buds and wanted something to block sound while on flights. The noise canceling in these is phenomenal and the sound quality is everything I expect from Klipsch.

I just received these a few days ago, and I love them! I had a set of s4i II's before this, and I'd say the sound quality is pretty similar. The new volume/phone control is a little bulkier than my previous set, and on the left bud instead of in the center. These are just things to get used to with the new set.
Only problem I have with it is that much like the skullcandy buds, any movement makes a lot of secondary noise that will eventually get bothersome if you're walking or moving around. I use these at my desk in an office, so it doesn't bother me much.
