    The Standard of Excellence!

    Posted
    Xootrman

    Klipsch earbuds (the object that you insert into your ear canals) are the standard bearer for fit and comfort and these do not disappoint. During my resent search for a great set of neckband style Bluetooth earbuds I purchased some of the best reviewed products in the category for comparison purposes (one of the best reasons to do business with Best Buy). I tried top of the line products from LG, the inventor of the class, and from Bose. All three products have virtues and vices and selecting one is definitely a subjective decision but the Klipsch R6 Neckband is my choice. The earbuds have a slim, angled nozzle with a variety of oval silicone tips that are light, and extremely comfortable. This is of great importance, especially when considering the duration of time for which they will be inserted into your ears. Sonic performance, especially for a Bluetooth set, is excellent with full dynamic range. From an audiophile perspective, sound reproduction is not flat; there is some additional weight placed on the bottom end. This colors the sound, but not in an annoying way and the music becomes involving. The controls work well, are intuitive to use, and have good feel. The Klipsch also performs very well as a telephone headset. When asked about voice clarity, I received only positive feedback. I didn't give 5 stars due the neckband design. Although it has a cool, retro kind of look, it's also somewhat bulky and tends not to stay well seated. This form factor negative is far outweighed by the excellence of the rest of the design.

    Great Sound and style

    Purchased the R6 neckband on a whim after using another brand for a week that was uncomfortable. These looked stylish and Klipsch is known for their sound quality so I picked them up to try out. I love the sound quality of the music and the phone calls. If I'm at home I find myself reaching for these if I get a phone call I know will last awhile. I've had no issues hearing anyone or anyone hearing me. When I listen to music there is immersive sound and good bass response. Comes in handy watching movies on my phone helps to not disturb others around me. Using a Pixel XL, I hold the call button to bring up the Google Assistant to make calls, or ask questions. The answers are dictated for simple queries without having to pull out my phone. The downsides tend to be design based.. The neckband can shift and is rather bulky (but that is why it has great battery life). I find that I have to readjust it from time to time if I move around a lot. The earbuds do not retract, which can be annoying if I'm not using them at the moment and they have to dangle. I've taken to putting them in my shirt after I almost lost a bud to a seatbelt. Initially the earbuds tended to fall out, but I experimented and found that the smaller ones actually stayed in better (contrary to my experience with most other ear tips). Since I found the size that works, I've had no issues and can comfortably wear them in ear for hours at a time if necessary. I would recommend them for anyone looking for sound/call quality and casual use but not for active users looking for gym or running wireless headphones.

    Great Sound poor distance

    I would have given these 5 stars if the Bluetooth distance was better. I did not do any research on these, I had just returned another brand that hurt my ears. I have a wired pair of Klipsch and i love them, so i figued these would be just as good. I was hoping these would stay on my neck, not feel heavy like my Jaybird pair. They hurt my ears after and hour or so. Not good for a 4 hr golf game. (Distance on those, good) Here are the Cons. Poor distance, I go into another room and it starts cutting out. At times it seems like It has a loose wire, this could just be my pair. not water resistant. Not easy to use right had to operate the controls Pros. Comfortable in the ear. Great sound no matter what your genre is. Different size earbuds that come standard. The leather has not broken down from sweat. I do wear these when i golf.(One main reason I got them) You can wash the earpiece. The controls work! If you pause it and unpause 10 min later it plays (unlike some others) It synced well with my phone and tablet. And the best for me is they don't fall off my neck when i only have 1 earpiece in. I wish i could say how long the battery life is but I haven't run out of a charge.(when I'm not using them i do turn them off) I've had these for a few months and i use them everyday. And yes i did pay for them

    Nothing Special / Extremely Overpriced

    I saw these headphones at BestBuy the other day and needed a nice bluetooth solution/headset. The premium look of the device and the high price tag attracted me, so i bought it. It's now two days later and i just returned it. First, the instructions are really bad, its a tiny book with a few tiny pages of basic info and that's it. Most of the functions i had to figure out on my own. I received calls and my callers kept saying they could hardly hear me, even when i was close to my phone in a very quiet room. Soon as i disconnected the headset people could hear me fine on my phone and speakerphone. I figured it may be a fluke, but EVERYONE i talked to over 2 days complained. I paired it with a S7 Edge and a iPhone 7 Plus, same results. It's not very comfortable either and the earbuds kept popping out, and i have normal ears and was using the right size earbuds (a few different sizes come with it). The sound was "ok", nothing special at all. The more and more i used this the more and more i said this is maybe worth $39.99 not $199.99. Regardless, i took it back and got something else. I would avoid this overpriced low quality product. Don't let the premium look fool you.

    Best bluetooth headphones

    I rarely, write reviews on anything. Only time I take the time out to write them is if they are really good, or they really suck! These by far sound better than my LG infinite & Lg Tones by far! I know sound is subjective but everything is well balanced with the head phones leaning towards the bass end. It took me 4 trips to best buy to figure out if I should get them considering how stupid it look to just have the ear buds hang down and not RETRACT! Even the cheapest pair of Lg bluetooth head sets look cleaner than this in the aspect, but not to contradict myself but they still look classy with the leather band. The only other complaint is the way these fit in most people ears might not be comfortable but this is me writing this with on 30 min of listening to them. These are a must keep and the best part about it not to many people know about these so I want look like the average joe walking around with the same earbuds. This being the companies first try at this I think did pretty well.

    Good Earphones

    These earphones were a gift and so far they are pretty good, especially since they are bluetooth, It is very easy to make calls with them and even when it is very windy the other person can still hear you and you can hear them. The sound quality is great but it depends on what exactly you listen to. I just love how they are more stylish than other earphones and in case anyone is wondering, they are not really meant for running. I just want to let everyone know that they do not reattach magnetically like other similar earphones do. There is also a button on the bottom side that lets you have vibration on the earphones or not. Although there are many great values about these earphones, I really don't think they should originally $180, maybe $110? Overall, they are great earphones and I do recommend that people buy these if they want something new.

    Klipsch is All Flash.........

    I was forced to purchase a new Bluetooth headset when LG Tone Infinim's neck piece broke. The Klipsch looks great. I had to decide between the Bose QuietComfort 30 and the Klipsch R6 Neckband.... after two days of using these I returned them I found the neckband to be very intrusive to wear even though they are stylist.... I found the cables for the ear pods too long and and the ear pod keep popping out (tried the large Medium-default and small double tips) the sound was decent but due to the neckband form factor which is ridged... pass this one by go with the LG Tone lg tone Infinim or step up to the Bose Comfort 30

    A very good BT

    I would say these are a really good pair of BT earphones. The good: Great sound (better than the average bt) Looks(High end feel)/ Call quality, Sturdy, Ear canal fit(use the right size earpieces), comfort, Deep bass and mids , pairing, vibration notification strength, Bad: Price, needs another 2-4 decibel gain on volume level, non-retractible cords, color options, slightly lengthy cords, lacks battery level prompt when unit is turned on. The bad things listed are not deal breakers other than pricing! Got these on sale so it was doable at $139. At $179 not $o much!

    Poor design

    The sound quality is a 5 star off the top, But the design for the neck ain't so great, I give it an "E" for effort on making it look high class with the designing. The ear rubber piece comes in different size, just like any other quality Bluetooth headset. But no retractable, I wonder how long the rubber piece going to last the way it swing around when u not listening to music. If the design was retractable just like the LG Infinim, would've been nice. Also, if Klipsch could come up with a design just like the Jabra Elite Sport. Most likely be the number one for best sound quality.

    Listen in comfort with these Klipsch Reference neckband headphones. The neckband and patented oval ear tips provide maximum comfort, and high-definition Bluetooth streaming gives you freedom from wires. Up to 15 hours of battery life lets you wear the headphones all day. A full bass dynamic driver in these Klipsch Reference neckband headphones provides high-quality sound. Optimal sound. I love these. The only thing is the earplugs always hangout unlike the LG tones.

    good sound and good mic

    The sound is really good and my friends tell me the mic sounds great, which is huge. I do have one beef. If you use them while your active they spin around and I'm constantly repositioning them. which is annoying. One other minor thing is when you hold the power button, it's hard to tell by the sound if they're powering on or off. I've had others that literally say powering on or off. Which is better. Otherwise, good headphones.

    Great Klipsch sound

    Klipsch is trying to enter a market that LB has dominated for a while. Unfortunately, these are bulky, heavy around the neck, no retractable. I don't particularly like what Klipsch does with the ear buds, the funky angle doesn't work for me. But the sound was incredible and now other headset comes close, but not convenient for comfortable for all day use at work, and the battery is no where close to LGs offerings.

    Love it! I've tried three other wireless earbuds and they we awful. Decided to try one more time and I hit the jackpot. User friendly. Didn't have to worry about using an app. Took it out of the box, let it charge overnight, turned on in the morning, automatically synced the first time. Works every time. Thank you Best Buy for another great product. I love my Best Buy. Keep up the good work.

    18 hours of talk time is what drew me to this headset And it last for a few days of talk time. i've used it for 2 days and still no low battery warnings... This is my biggest thing as I am on the phone ALOT for work and need the talk time. Even my LG only lasted a day with 10hrs of talk time. Sounds good. My only thing is I wish the buds retracted they just hang there

    These are great headphones. My life is very mobile so I pretty much use this headset throughout the day including the gym. My only problem is that the eartips that came with it constantly fell off. I would have to search the floor for them. I switched and purchase comply eartips and never had that problem again.

    This product is ok, but not having the retractable earbuds is cumbersome. It also slips around on my neck. Sound quality is very good without too much extraneous noise being transmitted. I wish I could press the on button and I could voice dial, which I haven't been able to do with this one.

    I use this headset for home office use. The clarity with my soft phone rivals my desk set phone. I would give the device a 5 if it were a bit louder as well as if the battery performance would be better. I use the device several hours a day and would not do without it.

    I think this is a decent product, however, could use some improvements. The ear buds are not retractable, therefore, they just hang when not in use. Also, the microphone pics up every movement you make as the backside of the device rubs against your shirt.

    This product has the sound quality that only can be produced by angels. But the wide metal body and bulky buttons leave this product sorely lacking in everything else. There isn't even a convenient spot to put your ear buds when not in use.

    For the money the product could have been built a little better very sensitive to the touch concerning noise through the frame and the rubber topping for the controls buckled after a few weeks in outdoor environment not good for me!!!!
