    Almost forgot what music is supposed to sound like

    Posted .

    I picked these up from the local Best Buy. I had some nice earbuds $130+ that sounded amazing, but I broke them after a couple weeks after I got a cord wrapped around a dumb bell and I dropped it after doing bench, or rows--can't remember. Anyway, point being, I used many pairs of lesser quality headphones iPod white headphones, marshmallows, skull candy, and some others. I tried these on at the store and the sound was incredible, even better then the Bose headphones the AE2s! Not to mention once I got home and plugged them into my desktop to try them out with spotify, all my music came to life. Deep base, crisp sound, and actually can pinpoint more instruments that I couldn't make out with my iPod stock headphones. They are a bit pricey, but they are just as good as the $200 Beats, or other noise cancelling headphones. Technically, they are a noise isolating headphone, nonetheless I cannot hear the loud boiler in the basement of the house that we live in near campus. I am stoked to start using these at the library! Check the website for the revised design, because the new ones look much better, but still are much better than the trendy beats, ludacris headphones etc. In my opinion, that means you are less likely to get jumped for your headphones if you walk to campus in a heavily populated urban university. One caveat though, if you have a larger head./ears these may be uncomfortable. I'm hoping the springiness is reduced with use, however for you mail-order folks these are not headphones that sit around your ear, these come in contact with the ear so just make sure you are comfortable in most headphones. This isn't a deal-breaker for me because they sound so good! Best of luck, don't settle for Beats, Bose, and others just because everyone else is, get some good bang for your buck!

    Lives up to the Klipsch name!

    Posted .

    My boyfriend has a full set of Klipsch speakers for his computer that I find amazing, so when I saw these on display at Best Buy, I had to try them. Fell in love right there in the store! Unfortunately, I was not the first one to discover this as they were sold out, so I ordered them online, and was very pleased when I was updated on their every move via email until they arrived at my front door. The memory foam is very comfortable, though they do take some getting used to as they are shaped to fit your ears as they are: tilted. The sound quality is just as amazing as I thought it would be, and I do not see myself breaking these very easily. My only complaint is the 3-button remote only being designed to work with Apple products, as I try to avoid such things. A small sacrifice for amazing headphones!!

    Cord barely lasted

    Posted .

    I was really happy when I bought these headphones, the sound was great (great balance between hi's and lo's in all genres of music) and they were very comfortable fitting on my ears. 20 days after I get them however, the sound was starting to fade due the cord getting jacked up I guess from being unplugged and plugged back in my pocket while music was playing. That's what has always happened to my headphones and I bought these thinking they wouldn't do that. Of course it had to happen 20 days after I bought them (15 day return policy). I don't do any of my extra curricular while wearing these things and really the only times I noticed they would get unplugged is when I was going upstairs or I put my phone in my pocket right after I plugged them in. I guess I should've bought the wireless ones cause I'm sick and tired of dealing with this problem.

    Best Audio Headphones for LESS MONEY---GO FIGURE!

    Posted .

    Lesson for the day: THE MOST EXPENSIVE OR MOST ATTRACTIVE HEADPHONES DON'T EQUATE TO THE BEST AUDIO EXPERIENCE. After having compared the Klipsch, Bose, and Beats headphones extensively, there is no question that the Klipsch headphones are the best BY FAR. The most important thing to look for in headphones is how accurately the headphones communicate the source material to your ears. The Beats headphones deliver far too much artificial bass, which actually reduces the sound quality of vocals and most instruments other than drums. You want your equalizer to perform this function; NOT YOUR HEADPHONES. While bass is certainly an important aspect of music, ideally one wants a balance of all the elements. On a side note, the plastic headband on the Beats headphones, like most plastic, will stress and weaken over time---no matter how big or small your head is. With this in mind, it is no doubt the reason why these break so often, and, for the price, there is simply no excuse as to why this should ever happen. These headphones are the Chrysler 300M of headphones: they look like a Rolls Royce, but they are far different "under the hood." If you want a pair of headphones that just "look good," then these are for you. The Bose headphones, by contrast, with their noise cancellation feature cut off critical elements of the music experience as a result of this process. As a result, the music on the Bose headphones lack the depth in both vocals and bass. If you plan on working near heavy machinery and flying on airplanes, then these are the headphones for you. These headphones are meant more so to tune things out rather than tune you into the music. The Klipsch headphones provide the balance and, yes, CLARITY that you want , delivering the crisp vocals and perfect bass that elevates the entire music experience. In addition, the form fitting ear foam readily cancels out outside noises while not compromising the quality of the audio in the process. Like their ear buds, Klipsch continues to provide the best audio experience and, miraculously, they are able to do so at a fraction of the price of their overpriced competition. It is rare that the LESS EXPENSIVE purchase provides BETTER QUALITY. If you are an audiophile who likes to listen to music the way it was intended to be heard, the Klipsch brand is for you.

    Klipsch will always be number one in my book

    Posted .

    First off, let me explain how I choose headphones. Everyone has the best set of monitors ever made - the human ear. However, because we're all made different, different people hear different sounds differently. On this note, I listen to a variety of music and my ears have been blasted to the point of near bleeding, but these headphones blew my mind. I listen for detail, depth, and how close to a flat response they represent. You'll see reviews on here where people say you need the "perfect EQ" for your IPod to get the most out of your headphones. The answer is NO music should have to be EQ'd to sound good. You want a flat response so it sounds like the studio master did. Over a cross section of 20 songs ranging from country to rock to rap to classical, these headphones produced the most true to life sound out of a group of 4 (BOSE, Phillips, Dre Beats, and Klipsch). Second, compression quality equates to sound quality. A 128kb/s MP3 will NOT sound as good as a 320kb/s MP3 and MP3 will never sound as good as Apple Lossless/FLAC/WAV. My collection for my IPod is in 320kb/s with a few 256kb/s and 192kb/s MP3's mixed in. They all sound amazing, but the bass is tighter and cleaner with the higher bit rates.If you're dumping 150+ on headphones, then you're going to want quality MP3s otherwise you might find yourself underwhelmed. Comfort is tops on these cans. The headphones make a nice seal that is tight but not uncomfortable. Noise isolation cuts out about 85% of background noise at reasonable levels. I can have my volume at 50% and just barely catch a conversation happening next to me. Also, leakage is pretty much non-existent at normal listening levels. You won't be disturbed and you won't be disturbing anyone else. The in line volume and track search control is both handy and simple to use. Someone needs to talk to you? Just hit a button and it pauses your IPod. Hit it again when done and continue where you left off. It's also at a good place on the wire so it won't get in the way, but is easy to access. These cans will take a little bit to break in, but still sound great out of the box. After about 20 hours of play time, the sound like perfection. Couple all of this with a nice carrying case and adapters for dual stereo mini-plug and 1/4" plug and you have the best pair of headphones for under $200 for the person who listens to it all.

    Studio Quality Sound

    |
    Posted .

    So usually I don't do these type of reviews unless I really like a product. First off if your thinking of buying a pair of noise cancelling headphones, don't even bother with Bose, or beats. There expensive, cheaply built and don't sound that great... These sound amazing! I've heard things in songs that I've never heard before on any other pair of head phones I've owned. The sound quality is 10 out of 10, very crisp and clear. There is also a soothing amount of bass in any type of music, from rap, jazz, dubstep, to oldies. It all sounds awesome! I use these headphones at work everyday for at least 8 hours and the comfort level is perfect. The leather pillow like earmuff things are comfy. Its like there not even on your head. I'd say there about 95% noise canceling. In a quiet office, I can't hear anything. It also depends on how loud you have the music. If you like to rock out like I do, you don't be able to hear you boss yelling at you! Which makes everyone's day a lot better! Overall if your looking for a nice pair of noise cancelling headphones I'd highly recommend this pair of Klipsch. For the price there an excellent choice!. They also come with a very nice hard case. Sound quality 10-10 Comfort 9.5-10

    Best Headphones You Can Buy for $149. Period!

    Posted .

    It really comes down to a simple choice. Either you buy headphones to look cool because they're stylish OR you buy headphones because you want the best possible sound quality for your music. If the latter is more important to you, then by all means, BUY THESE HEADPHONES! Seriously people, they are half the price of the Dre Beats and almost twice as good, and here's why: the Dre Beats sacrifice ALOT of clarity and texture for bass. Bass is not the most important feature in audio quality, just one component, so why spend a fortune on headphones that will: 1. break down in about 1-6 months and 2. will not giveyou a true, well rounded quality of sound for your music. The Klipsch ONE have the bass of the Beats, but the clarity of the Bose. There is NO sacrifice of clarity for bass. Great for listening to all types of music, from classical to hip hop, unlike the Beats which are only decent for hip hop. If you don't believe me, do yourself a favor and try them out for yourself at any Best Buy store. Most stores have them both on display right next to each other. Also,I would encourage anyone who's looking for a good pair of headphones to stop being lazy and do a little homework before spending your whole paycheck on a pair just to "look cool". Snce when was it ever cool to do the exact same thing as everyone else. Much cooler to do something different and have everyone else follow after you.

    I'm completely satisfied with these headphones

    Posted .

    I must say that this is a great sounding headphones. I researched, & sampled many high end headphones & was not impressed with many. These beat most or was on par with the others for much less. My two teenage sons both of whom have BEATS by DRE had to admit that these headphones sounded great also. Although they said the bass wasn't as strong as the BEATS but still sounded great. There only other criticism was the style of the headphones. For me (a 40yr old man) there good. But I can see there point of view when compared to stylish & bold looking headphones like BEATS. Bottom line is that at there price of $125 @ the time I purchased them you just can't beat it. You will not regret your purchase.

    Easily The Best Quality for the Price

    Posted .

    I work at customer service at a Best Buy, and I consistently have Beats returned due to an earbud going out, etc... and even our display pair are broken. We recently got a new stock of headphones in, and I was planning on buying the new Phillips pair (at $79.99). However, these were sitting right next to it, and I've always held Klipsch in high regard so I had to try them out. Immediately I noticed the sound quality was dramatically different, and these are so incredibly light and the ear padding feels fantastic which is great for me. I'm usually looking for great sound quality for my Xbox, and after finally buying a pair of Trittons, I wanted a great pair of headphones for my computer and MP3 player. These exceeded all of my expectations. It has really great noise cancellation. When my boyfriend says something to me with them on, I simply hear some mumbling and with the TV on right now, I merely hear some background rumbling. What I do love is that when I put them on, no one around me can here a thing. I can't even hear anything if I press down them down right next to my ears on my head. These would be a great gift for someone that annoys you with loud headphone noise! The music has amazing clarity. I had already sworn off on my laptop speakers, but these make me ashamed of them. The bass, as many have said, is the perfect balance. It is definitely there but not overpowering whatsoever. I highly recommend these... much over the Beats. Also, just personal preference I suppose, but I love the way these look much better. Smaller size, basic black... (I find the Beats look silly though).

    Great Price, Great Sound, Great Headphones!

    Posted .

    I love these headphones! The sound is so clear, and the bass is deep. The bass is so great I can feel the headphones vibrate when turned to the right level! Add to that, they are extremely comfortable. They still get slightly uncomfortable after long periods of wear, but I can't imagine anything not getting uncomfortable after wearing them for an extended period of time. I also love the included travel case and the tangle free wire. This is definitely a high quality product and it doesn't cost nearly as much as the other "big name" headphone brands. I have been impressed more and more with Klipsch products and I will from now on look to them first when searching for new audio products! If you're looking for comfortable headphones with great sound (who isn't?!), get these!!

    Great Headphones. Period.

    Posted .

    Let me start this by saying that I am an employee in the MP3 department and got to kill a lot of time after hours sampling our display headphones. Between the Skullcandy RocNation Aviators, Solos, and these Klipsch headphones, there are only marginal differences. But, I ended up going with the Klipsch...and, boy, and I happy that I did. The Dre's give you the best aesthetics and descent bass. But, I think you're more or less paying for the look and name--but, some people swear by their Dr. Dres (and I guess it depends on the type of music as well). For my ears, the RocNations offer a good amount of treble but lacked the amount of bass I was looking for. Comfort was probably best with these (I don't like the way Beats sit on my ears)...but that wasn't my primary concern. Then there are the Klipsch One headphones. The ugly duckling, if you will. If you want something that packs a punch in a compact design without paying upwards of 300 dollars, these are your guys. In a side by side comparison using "Revofev" by KiD CuDi, I found that the bass "hit" hardest with these. But, the overall sound quality was exceptional as well. If I have one complaint with these, it would have to be that my ears get a little sore when I have them on for a few hours (let's face it: some week nights offer nothing better than an opportunity to sit back and indulge in some tunes)...but I figured that would happen since I have big ears and these are on-ear headphones. Overall, though, these are the headphones I recommend to all of my customers in this price range...and I love mine as much as a dude can love an inanimate object.

    Quality headphones regardless of price.

    Posted .

    After two months of shopping, I chose the Image One headphones. Simply put, they sound great, comfortable and attractive looking. Out of the box I was impressed with the case they come with for travel, the cord is strong and the build is quality. The inline control module for my iPad 2 works perfectly and easy to use with the large buttons. Volume, track and microphone all contained in a light weight easy to find module. Definite must for those who travel or don't want to want to pull out your music player to access. The sound is superior. Crisp highs and solid low end and not sacrificing the mids at all. While they do not have the ear pounding bass, they do succeed with perfect balance. Comfort is important and these are very much so. Lightweight, they can be worn for hours of movies or music. You can spend untold amount of money for headphones for audiophile bank breaking sound. You won't need to for the Image One. I found accessing the iPad equalizer made a huge difference with sound. One last thing: you don't have to crank them up to have the great sound quality that other sets I have owned needed. Great for all music types and movies. Spend some time and listen to the really great sound and all your old playlists to rediscover your music once again. Also, give them some time to burn in. It does make a difference over time. Wow, love these headphones.

    Great Product, Superlative Service

    Posted .

    I did alot of homework durring the past months deciding on a great set of cans OR a great set of Buds and I found that as good as some of the best buds are, like the Bowers & Wilkins C5, or Monster Turbines, they just cannot compare to a great set of OE headphones. So many these days are over balanced on the bass side, These were a perfect balance of bass, midrange and trebles! It came down to these or the B&W P5's and at half the price, these were a steal. As good as this product is, it can't compare to the service I received and PROFESSIONAL assistance that I rec'd at the Irvine store on Lake Forest, CA. They understand SERVICE and I will continue to buy as much of my electronics there. And I tell all of my friends to go there as well!! Thanks lads and laddies for being so good!!

    Good Value, Great Sound, Good Freq Resp.

    Posted .

    I purchased these after being thoroughly disappointed by the Beats line. The Beats Solo HD I have sound very muffled in the high frequencies, and overpowering on the bass. These Klipsch headphones have everything the beats don't. The bass is tight and low. I've actually had to consider putting a subsonic filter in to eliminate the <20 hz sounds as they get in your ears and hurt, but can't be heard. The audible bass range is strong with a slow rolloff as the frequency increases. The Mid ranges are pretty flat and the upper ranges are not diminished nor too bright. That said I like a good amount of treble, so if you like infinity kappa or high end yamaha mids and tweets, you'll love these. The only issue I have is the connector has the 4th conductor (for the Mic) and it goes into the jack a little too far. I have to pull it out a little to get the connection right. It works well with my andriod phone though, so that's a bonus. Overall Very happy with these. A refreshing change from my beats solo set.

    Most comfortable headphones I've ever worn

    |
    Posted .

    Klipsch makes high quality audio equipment and their headphones are no exception. They are light weight, on ear headphones with just one durable cord. They are very efficient so you get a loud but clear sound. My only reservation is that the midrange vocals sound muted, so I set the equalization on my iPod for a Treble Boost. There is already plenty of deep bass. The best thing about the Klipsch headphones is that I can go on a long walk or hike wearing them and my ears don't get fatigued by the sound. They are comfortable, durable, and easy headphones for any audiophile.

    Very good headphones for the price

    Posted .

    Wanted some headphones for my tablet so I could watch movies on a long plane trip. Had not purchased headphones in a long time and was astonished at the prices I found. This set provides good sound at a reasonable price. At home with other noises around me, they block outside noise reasonably well and require very low volume input for good sound. On the plane, surrounding noise was much greater so the volume required was also higher. But you could still hear the movie fairly well. I believe I made a good purchase. The only downside is after extended wear, they are a bit uncomfortable on my ears. This is a minor issue.

    I listened to 20 headsets and this one was as good

    Posted .

    I listened to at least 20 headsets playing the same music. This headset outperformed 90% of those with a higher price and sounded as good as 95 % of the most expensive headsets. Slightly more base than most but excellent quality. You won't be disappointed. When I finally made up my mind I found out it was the last one in the store. I guess I wasn't the only one that liked these headphones.

    WOW, best headphones below $500!

    Posted .

    Unbelievable sound! I'm not a big Klipsch fan for their tower speakers and home theater systems. But these headphones DESTROY the Bose and Beats by Mr. Dre (He's not REALLY a DR.)!! Had the Bose AE2's for about 2 hours, they kept cutting in and out and sounded overall very muted compared to a full range sound experience. These have tremendous clarity and I swear the have deeper bass than any car I've ever put a system into! I have a complete Martin Logan sound system with a $1,500 subwoofer, and these headphones sound just like my best 2 channel setup! They feel much more solid in terms of build than the other top rated headphones (I've bought and tried them all) and the in-line microphone has come in very handy! I designed HT systems for Magnolia for 5 years, and I would definitely say that I'm an audiophile. So my discerning ear will notice the slightest nuances in music reproduction and the ability of the speaker to handle the power. These headphones do so with flying colors and with a very impressive soundstage.

    Amazing sound, great price

    Posted .

    OK, I admit the headphones I really wanted to buy to use for a trip to Europe were the Bose QC15. Yes they are rated as the best noise cancelling headphones on the market today and I believe that. But I couldn't get myself to fork out over $300 for some headphones. So I found these Klipsch Image Ones, read about it on cnet.com, and bestbuy, read all the reviews and decided, "well if I really don't like them I'll just return them." Post European trip and after using them for hours on the planes and now here in the office, these headphones past my test. The sound is awesome! Clean highs, low lows. Yes, they are not noise cancelling and yes they do tend to get a little uncomfortable after wearing them for a couple of hours. Oh and also they can be used to talk through with an iPhone! Only thing is they can ONLY be used of an iPhone. But for about $129, they are well worth it compared to the $300+ I was going to be out of pocket for with the Bose.

    These were purchased to replace a cheaper set of headphones. After going through several cheaper sets, we finally spent a little more to get a better quality. (with what we spent on the other sets, we should have purchases these first!) They are holding up to daily use with no issues. Very comfortable and Excellent sound. Nice carrying case too. For a small fee, we also purchases the extended protection in case the cord ever fails, but so far it is holding up great. I would recommend these.
