    Faithful companion for years, at a great price

    Several years ago, when I was shopping for a pair of earbuds, I was strongly considering investing in a pair of Bose noise-cancelling earbuds (at the time, the technology was cutting edge, especially in something so small) - which would have carried a hefty $200 price tag. I was hesitant because of this, and asked a friend of mine who worked in the audio department at my local Best Buy his thoughts. "Don't buy the Bose," he said, "buy these instead." And showed me to the Klipsch R2 earbuds. I purchased them, because they came in at $80, and because I already knew Klipsch from the ProMedia speakers I still use for my PC. I was not disappointed in the least. The highs were crisp and sharp, the bass was impressive, and the shape of the silicon inserts molded to my ears perfectly, securing them deftly while blocking out just about all noise around me. These earbuds were my faithful companions through study sessions in noisy cafes, through watching YouTube in the late hours of the night when my roommate needed to sleep, through countless flights from Massachusetts to California and back, through Skype interviews, through noisy afternoons in cubicle city, through phone meetings and global teleconferencing, through falling in and out of love, through growth, through late night work and gaming sessions, all while helping me keep to myself, and providing incredible sound quality. When the driver in the right earbud began to give out after a decade of very frequent use, I was quite sad. The R2 earbuds had been so good to me, but I knew they owed me nothing. So, I took myself to Best Buy, fearful that, with the advent of wireless earbuds, Klipsch might not have kept up with their reference series. I resolved myself that, if I could not find the successor to my R2 earbuds, I'd pay the Apple tax and buy a pair of EarPods (which, to be fair, are very good for what they are). However, I have to admit a big smile came to my face when I found these, the Klipsch R6 earbuds (and on sale at the time - I paid less than $60 for them). Immediately after purchasing them, I opened the package, and I was blown away once again. I didn't think it was possible to have higher audio fidelity than the R2, but I was wrong. The R6 are a clear improvement in every way. These earbuds produce a crisp sound across the entire range, with improved frequency response and a higher potential output (meaning they're louder). Klipsch even managed to improve the noise isolation technology, which was already excellent. All in all, these earbuds are remarkable in just about every way, and vastly superior to my roommate's EarPods (so long as you don't mind a wire). My one complaint about these has nothing to do with the product itself so much as the accessories. My original R2 earbuds came with an aluminum case with foam inserts to keep the earbuds secure while they were packed (similar in size to an Altoids tin). I highly suspect this contributed to their longevity, and why I was able to consistently use them for a decade. However, the R6 earbuds come instead with a small fabric bag with a drawstring, which provides substantially less protection for the product. I am fortunate in that my R6 earbuds fit in the R2 tin pretty nicely, but I would be remiss if they did not. I can't imagine that bit of folded aluminum was terribly expensive to produce, and so I'd urge Klipsch to consider including it in future iterations of the product. On the whole, I highly recommend the Klipsch R6 II earbuds. They are an amazing value, and I can easily see them accompanying me through the next few chapters of my life (so long as 3.5mm earphone jacks endure).

    High quality in ear headphones @ reasonable price

    Until you have listened to music on high-quality speakers or headphones, you may not fully appreciate the difference they can make. Sound: Detailed. You will hear elements of songs you may not have heard before. While the bass is emphasized, it is not overwhelming except with the most bass heavy recordings. Not overly bright with high frequencies either. High sensitivity - 110 db/1mW. Even a smartphone or tablet will generate more than enough volume even at low settings. A laptop or desktop computer will need its volume level turned down very low. Fit: The ear tips are comfortable. In my case, they do not stay in perfectly, but they do not create enough pressure to hurt my ears either. Fatigue from use should not be an issue for most. Mechanics: The cable is a little short at around 4 feet, but it works for me. The plug is straight, not a right angle plug. There is a strain relief built into the cable near the plug, but not near the earbuds. Unknown how that will affect durability long term. The fabric pouch is a nice touch to help reduce wear when carried in a bag with other items. I found myself enjoying music more on my laptop and smartphone. Old tracks gained new life. You can spend a lot more, but diminishing returns apply.

    As an audioholic owner of many ear buds and headphones of many brands, I took a chance on these by their price, but with the klipsch brand in mind. Dont sleep on these. I was surprised how well these sounded. The buds themselves have a soft touch / feel to them. The oval shaped tips worked very well and you get additional sizes along with a double ribbed pair in a small carry sack. Build quality is not extreme as they are not IP rated or made for working out, but are not poor / low end quality either. Keep in mind garbage in / garbage out. I am using these with a Sony Walkman playing mp3 and flac files and they have a soft sumptuous pleasant sound with a nice boost in the bass. (Of course, they are klipsch). Only two negatives in my opinion. 1 I would prefer a hard carry case instead of a pouch and 2 even in half way in volume I could hear a little distortion/ crackling sound in the highs, but are very lightly noticeable and definitely not a deal breaker. Since they have good bass and come in a pouch I would definitely recommend these for use with a PS vita or Nintendo switch. I think I'm going to get another pair.

    After 1 year of use.... These are a MUST! The shape design is awesome for wearing them under a 'motorcycle helmet'! I have a loud exhaust system on my bike, and these headphones are FANTASTIC! I have no problem hearing the songs, knod'n my head to the tunes. You also get additional rubber replacement comfort ends, in a soft material bag. Serious A MUST for 'Motorcycle' riders. The "BASS" is awesome! I can personally say, these have lasted, been thump'n, and still working like the day I bought them!! Highly Recommended!

    Not Klipsch Quality

    I am extremely disappointing by these headphones. I needed new wired headphones to listen to music at work and occasionally to take work calls. Not only is the treble incredibly muted, but the cord noise is so bad, that I have had to use a cheap pair of headphones I have had sitting around at my desk, just to get through the call. This is exactly why these headphones are NOT worth the money. Yes, they are a great deal for Klipsch, but not for what you end up getting. I expected a dynamic, functional headphone and what I actually got was a nuisance.

    I was very dissapointed by these. I purchased them because usually the buds that come with phones are not great. I just got the Google Pixel 3 XL. These IEMs are about the same sound quality as the USB-C Pixel buds, without the advantage of Google assistant being built in. Also, they fall out easily, even with the clip. I tried all the different size tips. All fell out on the slightest tug. In addition there is a terrible amount of cord noise. I cannot recommend these to anyone, especially for the price. Yes I know they are in on the low end as these things go, but for that much money I expect a little more. I ended up returning them.

    Decent performance for budget earbuds. Bass is much, much improved over the previous iteration of these earbuds (bass was absolutely awful on the previous model), but it's still not much to write home about. These sound much better, much clearer than typical cheapy earbuds you might find at a gas station or Walgreens, but not much better than earbuds that might come bundled with a nice smartphone (like a Samsung, for instance.) Keep your expectations in check, and you might be pleased with these. Otherwise, you'll need to look at more expensive options to sate your audio appetite.

    Pros: the price has dropped dramatically since when they first came out. Why pay for noise canceling when these bad boys got into your ears and you get no outside noises. I love that they are light weight as well. And The bass, treble, voice are super clear. Cons: I don't like how they went back to the flimsy end piece that connects to your mp3 device. Otherwise that they truly stand behinde their name.

    This earphone sound quality are great for it's price but the wires can be annoying. You'll hear every bit of squeak from the wire connecting to your earphones when being rubbed against anything. I have gotten quite mad a lot of times as this sound can be quite vexing. But regardless, it's sound quality is still better than many other earphones at this price. Just be sure to not rubbed the wires against anything.

    These headphones are are a for sure improvement from the R6 original series that came out. The dual drivers make a difference in the lows and highs. Also the oval shape of the earpiece actually does keep these in my ear much better than other in-ears I've used! I play live with these and they do a great job. I believe these strike a great balance between sound quality, build quality and price!

    I've always had problems with earbuds fitting in my ears properly and staying in. Until I bought these. The Klipsch have oval cushions instead of round. The result is they fit snugly and comfortably in my ears and they stay there. The sound is excellent, with crisp but not shrill highs, and substantial but not boomy bass. These are by far the best earbuds I've ever owned.

    These earphones were one of my favorites because the quality and weight of these were like nothing I have experience. The comfort of these were superb especially wiring sound to the ear didn't annoy or notice when you were listening to something. I highly suggest these earphones, they are a must have if you need earphones.

    Klipsch seems to underprice their products by a large margin. To get headphones of comparable quality, you'd have to spend twice the price. I absolutely love these headphones. I originally bought the s4's two years ago and they lasted years. I'll be a lifetime customer of Klipsch. Don't waste your money on other brands they don't even come close.

    These are hands down the best headphones for wired users. They are crisp, clear and the bass is pretty darn good for headphones that aren’t of the over the ear type. I have the computer speakers by this company that are the best as well. Seems this brand likes to stay at the top of their class!

    This was an excellent buy for under $60.00 and it's comparable to the more expensive ones, or even better, maybe. The sound was awesome, it's not deafening even if I turn the volume to the maximum. The best part is the ear piece...you barely feel it there and it's not painful to the ears and not bothersome. I will buy it again if I need to.

    So I went to the store looking for a pair of beats, but walked out with these, as they were sold out. The store rep recommended these, and after having these for the past month, I do too. Great sound quality. Low lows, crisp highs, defined mids, and multiple ear tips to find the right fit. No complaints, very happy to have found this gem!

    I purchased these headphones as an upgrade to my previous headphones that the earpieces no longer stayed in my ears. These have oval shaped earpieces which are snug in my ears and help with cancelling out some noise. So far these sound great while playing games, should have upgraded awhile ago.

    These are almost up there with Shure's entry level earphones. They frequency response is nice and as a bass player that uses these for in-ear monitor, they have plenty of clear low end. If you're looking for the one with the phone controls/mic, look for the R6i earbuds.

    Very good wired headphones if all you're concerned with is sound quality. Very good bass response, and very comfortable to wear an extended period of time. I wear these riding a motorcycle with zero issues. Only complaint is no microphone for phone use, but its a non issue for me
