    A beautiful, clean, rich sound, better than most.

    I've tried several different brands, from Skull Candy, Sony, Beats, Seinnheiser, Bose and the sound on these Klipsch are far better in terms of crisp, clean, natural sound. The bass is rich and deep without any distortion (unlike with Beats) and the vocals are clear and spacious (unlike with Seinnheiser). This is not to bash any other brands, each brand has a signature sound and preferences vary on an individual basis, but I will say I searched for the perfect sound and for this price range this was the only product that satisfied my ears. The pros: - Great battery life, similar to the Powerbeats 2 but these have an auto shut-off when you turn the bluetooth. - Reliable bluetooth connection, better than the Powerbeats 2 wireless, which would cut off on me randomly even when sitting right next to my phone. The Klipsch R6 paired easily with every device, no problems, not once. - High-quality sound. I take sound very seriously for the simple fact that I love a good audio mix. These headphones are so accurate and clear that my sense of music is renewed and I want to go back and listen to all my favorite songs again. The bass is great without any modifications (unlike Beats) and the mids and highs are amazingly clear and sound beautiful. When I put them on I'm always reminded of how great sounding a pair of headphones can be, especially wireless ones. -Nice light fit, they don't feel heavy or ever feel annoying. They hang gently over your ear and the ear buds go in just like regular in-ears, this was a huge pro for me as I absolutely hated the fit of my Powerbeats, but the Powerbeats had a better fit for running even though they didn't always stay put. (For the Klipsch I use the biggest earpads for a snug fit and a nice seal, this is where I get the best sound.) The cons: -They do tend to fall off your ears if you move your head enough, but it hasn't been a problem for me because I don't use them to go running and when walking they stay put just fine. -Would be great if they came with a hard case to protect them. The Powerbeats came with a really nice (yet bulky) case which I use for these. -Something to hold them in place from falling off your neck. They stay in place pretty well, but when hanging on your shoulders it would be great if we could have something to prevent it from ever falling off, just we forget they're there. -The fit could be better especially for people who plan to run or move their head a lot. I've only had them for about a month so I don't know how long they will last, but I did put the warranty on them so I'm comfortable using them as I please. The build is nice and sleek and the packaging was very appealing. They feel durable but still delicate in some ways. All in all these headphones are some of the best, especially in their price range. Truly beautiful high quality sound that is simply unmatched (especially if you find the right fit for your ears, so be sure to test the ear pads, you want them to fit snug and seal out noises from your environment). I have a pair of Seinnheiser HD280's and these Klipsch rival them in sound by far, with the exception of the nice bass on the HD280s (you simply cannot beat over the ears when it comes to a sound experience, but these in-ears sure do give them a fair competition). I definitely prefer the sound way more than any Beats product where the bass is far too synthetic and becomes muddy and distorted at times. When the bass gets deep on these R6's it stays nice and clear but still goes to the same depths, just without the muddiness and rumble. (Some people like the extra bass, I used to but now I want the cleanest sound possible.) After going through dozens of pairs of headphones, I'm finally satisfied with these Klipsch R6 Wireless headphones. This is actually my first Klipsch purchase but I will definitely be trying more Klipsch products in the future. If I had to buy these headphones again I'd do it gladly.

    Impressive fit and function if you're patient

    I chose these earbuds to replace a cherished pair of Klipsch R6 BT since the Klipsch set was no longer available. Having experience with JBL's Bluetooth Speakers and familiarity with their brand, I decided to give the Reflect Contour a shot. I liked having behind-the-ear support from the Klipsch, but the execution was clumsy. The Reflect Contour hold confidently to my ears while being lightweight and comfortable, but... It took a few weeks to get used to them. I had never used earbuds with earhooks before, so it took a bit of mixing and matching to get the best combination. Be patient with the fit. The earhooks irritated the skin of my ear at first, but the skin quickly adapted, no different than your inner-ear adjusting to the silicone tips. As I wore them longer, the tips began to seal better, and the hooks became more comfortable. The sound is very dependant on a good seal, and it's worth pointing out that these buds do not go in your ear, but rest up against the canal openning. Every volume and sound quality issue I had was dependant on the placement and seal. When it's right, these are an impressive set of transducers. But getting that fit took some break-in. Volume is not terribly weak, but not terribly loud either. The sound response favors the low end, but there's enough stage that things don't get crushed. Handles a pretty wide range of genres competently, considering Bluetooth audio can only go so far. Plenty good for yardwork or a run, keep their purpose in mind. The inline remote works great with iOS, but being so close to the left ear on the wire causes it to bump my cheeks. Charging time is the usual, but playback time is surprisingly long. I always have to give respect when the numbers on the box reflect real-world use instead of "best condition" use. Instead of beeps, a disembodied voice tells you the power and connected states. This leads to my one serious peeve with these headphone; "Battery medium." It never fails to yank me out of whatever I'm listening to. While a battery low notifcation is always welcome, I'm torn on being interrupted to express half battery life. Overall, I am pleased with them, and would replace them with little thought if lost or broken.

    I was looking for a good quality set of Bluetooth headphones, finally found a set I like and that don't sound like garbage. I've tried others, such as the Jaybirds and Jabra...all about the same price or slightly cheaper than these. Those other earbuds basically sounded like tweeters...good highs, very little mid, and where's the bass? Maybe I didn't stick them far enough into my ears, but anyway I returned them as I didn't like them. These fit comfortably, and have very good sound for their size. They may take a little adjustment to get used to but overall they fit and stay in. If bass goes away, they aren't sealed completely in the ear...not sure if that's what the issue with the others were, but even these sounded better and had audible mid's and bass even when they weren't completely in, inserted them in more, and wow, more bass. Sound quality improves even more when you use an EQ on your player, but overdoing it may cause a little distortion. I also own a pair of Bose noise cancelling earbuds, and they of course are the bomb, but aren't wireless, and I wanted something wireless also. I knew these wouldn't sound as great as the Bose, but these met my expectations. Remote control works good; play/pause control via center button, volume up/down on edges. Found out that holding those buttons down will advance or repeat a song (I song surf a lot, and sometimes like to hear a song again#. Haven't tried the song skip, repeat, and wasn't sure it existed until I read the manual; usually don't do that unless I need to.

    Good for Android and small ears

    I went through A LOT of bluetooth headphones trying to find ones that worked completely with android and were comfortable for long wear and had long battery life. Wanting comfort and long battery life? THAT is difficult. Tried all of them from Sony up to Jaybird X2's. These are the best overall, but could be improved. Pros: * Sound is good, bass could be better * Easy to pair with multiple devices. * Comfortable for small ears and long wear * Battery does last 6 - 8 hours for music. * Phone calls were easy to respond to and other party said I was easy to hear. Cons: * Do not hook around ears well as they are not rigid enough * Can run with, but will need to adjust periodically The best fits and sound were Dr. Dre's, but when they do not support music for android, they were a no go. These are good and i'm hoping in future versions they will make the around the ear fit better so it doesn't fall off. Price on sale for $129 was not bad and for longer battery life and easy controls. I'll keep them.

    Good sound, not great Bluetooth connection

    I did a LOT of research before deciding on these particular ear buds. They are quite comfortable, synced up easily and have very good sound. They have more bass than most Bluetooth ear buds. The main reason I bought these was to listen to my music and fitness tracker updates while walking /jogging /bicycling. They work fine for biking, but I found that while walking with my phone in my left hand, they would constantly cut out every time my arm would swing forward/backwards. If I switched to my right hand, then the problem would go away. I thought at first, maybe it was because the battery was low. However, I fully charged it and tried again the next day and got the same results. For the amount of money I spent on these, it just wasn't acceptable. I ended up buying a pair of Jaybird x2s. They aren't quite as comfortable nor have quite the bass that the klipsch do, but at least they don't cut out while walking. Whether I would recommend these or not would really depend on what the person intends to do with them.

    Sounds good but doesn't stay in ear.

    I've used the Klipsch R6 a handful of times now and the sound is really good, as you would expect from a Klipsch product. My one criticism is that they don't stay in place all that well. I have tried using the different sized silicon sleeves to see if one would work better than the other and have had no success. I use them mainly when I am doing yardwork and they will stay put for a while, but eventually pop out. The behind the ear part of it tends to get pushed out when I am wearing sunglasses, so it kind of ends up flapping in the breeze, which also probably helps make the ear bud pop out. The ear buds I used before these had the same problem, so it could just be the shape of my ears. The old ones had a cord, and I thought the Bluetooth would solve the problem of them being ripped out of my ears when they got hung up on something. Unfortunately, they still pop out on there own. I would recommend them if earbuds have worked for you in the past. In the future, I think I am going to switch to a different style.

    I thought my LG tone Ultra BT earbuds sounded good.....Bluetooth and music streaming really has improved. Spec wise, bigger drivers and BT 4.0 (vs 3.0 of my LG). I am unsing this on my VZW LG G3 VS985 on LP. On default Android (no system EQ or sound mod) sound really good, much better than any other BT headphone I have tried. Actuly has some noticeable bass. With the sound mod I use (Viper4Android FX) these are almost as good as my full size wired headphones (VMODA M100...to which they do have a BT version now, but $300.) Hits deep bass and can push them quite far before they distort a bit. They sound a wee bit on the high, or treblely side. These Klipch fit great. I don't really feel headset part over my ear. The buds themselves fit fine with the the pads ear pieces that came on them. The controller on the wire take some getting used to. Does Not have ANC tech, but they do block out more outside sound then I had expected. Wish it had companion app to tweak the device like some other headphones do.

    Klipsch Image One Bluetooth were awesome. 4 out of 5 for sure. The only reason they don't get a 5 is because when you use them outside the headphones pick up everything. If its windy then the other party won’t hear a word you say during phone mode. But, the sound and bass is seriously ridiculous. Fix that and get Lil Wayne or get up an coming artists to promote them. My last pair broke but I ordered another pair from Amazon. Now to the R6 Bluetooth headphones. They don’t stay on your head. Not even while sitting still. They lack in volume and the bass is non-existent. I read the reviews but didn’t want to believe them. Amazon has very low reviews. BestBuy has good reviews. Klipsch has very few reviews and the reviews are subpar. Again, I love Klipsch. I have home speakers in the walls in 2 rooms of my home and I am getting more. But, I really need y’all to step up your headphone game. Also, when is someone going to make bicycle headphones that are safe and have beats? I’m just saying…

    Great sound, good fit

    Purchased for listening to music while working and relaxing at home with my tablet, with concern over sound quality considering Bluetooth limitations. I have been impressed with the quality of the sound and battery performance, good frequency response and stage, and the battery does last a good six or so hours of playback, more in stand-by. The fit is a little awkward, especially if you wear glasses. They are light and unobtrusive, but can be finicky if you move about much. The earbud part stays secure, but the behind the ear sections can find their way loose if not secured with the included wire clip. I can't hardly recommend them for running or working out if you wear any kind of eyewear. Basically, as a wireless version of the R6 reference series earbuds, they live up to the Klipsch pedigree and perform admirably.

    GREAT BLUETOOTH HEADPHONES

    These Bluetooth headphones are a great value and great sounding. After over 2 months of use, they have not dropped my music once. The 4.0 bt connection stays constant and consistent no matter what activity I am doing. The cord around the back of my neck doesn't get in the way or get stuck on my skin when I sweat (unlike the beats2). Soundwise, some may consider them a bit twee but I hear a lot of detail and definition in their playback. The behind the ear fit is a bit more clumsy than the Plantonics 801 / 803 versions but nothing too bothersome. The dongle for answering calls and navigating music is easy to use and on the right side of your head (almost every other bt headsets are on the left - opposite from where my phone is usually located. Until something better is brought out, this is the best bt headset on the market considering sound, value and playback.

    Great Wireless Earphones

    Posted
    Nick

    I just bought the Klipsch R6 BT earphones. I must indicate that they sound with a well balanced and rich output. The bass is clear and mids and highs are well balanced. it is evident that quality sound is at the heart of these earphones. I also own a set of powerbeats2 (PB2), however, they sound more bassy than the Klipsch. Wireless connection is stronger with Klipsch than PB2, so you will experience fewer disconnections than with the PB2. The beats however, fit more confortable and secure on the ear which is excellent for running. The Klipsch require to be secured using the connecting clip. Once this is done they stay secure on the ear with the excellent sound response! So, in conclusion for music playing I prefer the Klipsch, for running though, I prefer the PB2.

    Great Sound, "Iffy" Fit

    So, I may or may not have been the guy who ripped open the packaging and threw out all the manuals before I actually used the product. The sound on these definitely live up to Klipsch quality standards, and have been my favorite out of 3 wireless headphones I have had (Jaybirds and a Motorola Pair) The only thing I don't like is that they do not fit real good when clinging to my ear. They are not adjustable, and I haven't tried another set of earbuds yet (they come with a couple of different sizes for the plug portion) but the back handles seem to fall easily off my ears. (One size fits all I guess?) These are still great headphones, and if you're a soundbuff like me, then these are easily some of the best priced/sounding, earbud wireless headphones.

    Best sound quality for wireless earbuds

    As with any Klipsh product, the sound quality is simply the best. These produce sounds that are vastly superior to competing products from Beats or LG or you name it. And I mean vastly superior. That alone should bump these to the top of your list. I was really shocked by how good these sound. Why only 4 stars? Well, the fit is going to be largely dependent on your ears. and if your ears aren't right, they're just not going to fit well. Same goes for the earbuds (luckily, they give you a few different pairs to try out). Also, I wasn't a fan of the rubber latch that you need to pull to get to the micro-USB charging port. I swear this requires a pin or paperclip to open. A baffling and stupid design decision. Ugh. Why? WHY?

    I've tried a lot of wireless earphones, including Jaybird Wireless X2 & Powerbeats2 Wireless and these are hands down superior to either of those "bestselling" earphones! 1) They are cheaper, they sound much better, with cleaner base and less muffled mid-range/vocals and they are more comfortable. 2) Battery life seems to be pretty good and they are fairly discrete for wearing in public. Best Buy also had these on sale, with a $15.00 discount. Lows: The overall sound quality still doesn't quite match a wired earphone in the same price range, but for working out or having the convenience of wireless, these are the best out there...so far! I would highly recommend these if you're looking for strictly wireless.

    I love Klipsch speakers and theses little buds did not disappoint. The sound is terrific, bass is super deep for being wireless and earbuds at that. Battery life is tremendous and the Bluetooth actually works from a decent distance. I had left my phone in my basement and was walking all over the house with no interruption in music at all. My only negative with these is the lack of mobility with these. The pieces that hang over your ear are large and while sitting still they are fine but as soon as I tilt my head forward or back/ while I'm moving around at the gym they partially pull the bud out of my ear which can get annoying. Otherwise perfectly happy with my purchAse.

    I've always been a fan of Klipsch, having bought their R6i's, and X11i's. These klipsch headphones are as comfortable as their competitors when it comes to wireless ear buds. They slip off easily when lying down, and they don't feel secure while running. The sound gets a 10/10 for this price point. If you're using this when you're at the gym, but not for running, I would buy these over the beats wireless headphones since these are insured and beats are not. Not considering the warranty klipsch offers that beats lack, I would reconmend the powerbeats wireless instead.

    Before I bought these headphones, I purchased and returned 3 different sets of Bluetooth headphones including LG , and the Power Beats 2 which are $50 more. The sound is amazing and the bass is THE BEST I've heard yet. Make sure you use the best ear buds for your ears. I found the best ones for me were the oval. The correct ear buds make a HUGE DIFFERENCE in the bass and sound quality....so make sure you select the correct fit for your ears. To top it off.. They are comfortable

    As all Klipsch products the sound on these earphones was great. The design looks good and the buds fit my ears great due to the different size tips they provide. The only negative, and it was a big one, is that these headphones would not stay behind my ears as intended. Movement, shirt collars and glasses all interfered with the headphones remaining on my ears. It is too bad since I really looked forward to adding these to my other Klipsch products.

    After reading many reviews on best buy.com and considering the sale price, I decided on this Klipsch product. Owned several Klipsch speakers and headsets over the years and was always impressed with the quality and value. The R6 deliver true sound fidelity, the bluetooth capability worked flawlessly and the battery life is exceptional. Dropped one star on my rating due to the bulkiness of the earpieces vs other models.

    I have tried all of the other major brand bluetooth earbuds and had not been impressed. These are by far, the most comfortable and best sounding out of any I have bought. These are great for running and the gym. I do have to wear these in the opposite ears as the recommended way was not as comfortable or as good of a fit. They seem to have been designed to accommodate using them either way. Excellent product!
