    Great sound, and unexpected Android functionality

    Posted

    Comfortable to wear, easy to grasp for inserting and removing from the ear, and great balanced sound and music detail, ESPECIALLY for the sale price of $52. After researching (online) what control pad features I could expect to work with an Android phone (the i in its name designates iOS compatibility), it looked like the only function that I would be able to use it for would be phone calls, which is a feature that my previous earbuds did not have due to a lack of a microphone. I was VERY pleasantly surprised to discover that the inline control unit can pause and play, skip to the next or previous track, and answer a phone call. I use Google Play Music on my LG V20 phone with Android 7.0. Volume control does not work, and not sure about ending phone calls. The microphone does allow using it for phone calls. So far my only gripe is that the cord seems thin and relatively fragile. I also wish the button on the control pad felt a little more distinctive, so I could locate it more quickly by touch. All frequencies from bass on up seemed strong and very crisp to me, and the earbuds themselves give the impression that they are well made and rugged. Included in the package are different sized ear tips (the stock Medium size fit me best), and a cloth drawstring carrying pouch. That is OK, but I personally use a slim steel 'tin'/container such as mints are sometimes sold in (roughly 3.75" x 2.25" x 0.75"). It provides great protection, and fits great in a shirt pocket (probably pants, too), and would also protect well in a carry-on or backpack. I know that wireless is the hot thing now, with several convenience advantages, but on the other hand, these have no lag watching videos, have no connection drop-outs, have no battery issues, and cost less (or much less) than comparable-sounding wireless earbuds, and can be carried in a slimmer case. Just ironic that these corded earbuds, which are designed to be compatible with iOS devices, are not ideal for the recent crop of iPhones which lack a headphone jack.

    Greatest Earbuds I've Had

    Posted

    Let's get a few things out of the way first. If the following are necessary, do not consider this product. - These earbuds are wired - THe length of the earbuds are not terribly long. If you keep your phone a few feet away you will have trouble with these. - The cable is thin. If you need rugged earbuds, do not consider these. These are very skinny cables. - The bud composition is unusual, and if you are not comfortable with buds going towards your face rather than away, these are not for you. With that out of the way, the sound on these are osme of the best I've heard. The sound is excellent in the highs, and the bass isn't so loud as to drown out the instrumental backgrounds. However, the bass really simply depends on the volume. The volume, I realized, is more like a bass volume button. It may simply be my interpretation, but I've noticed that it seems like the treble of the sound does not raise high while bass raises dramatically with each interval in which you raise your volume. At about 80%, the bass is absolutely stunning and will leave you in awe, practically. The way buds enter your ears are...different, but they worked out for me. The buds are more of an oval shape, and they enter from the back and quite a bit inwards. This is, as expected, quite a good way to cancel noise. I've never said "What!?" to my family more times with any other earbuds compared to this thing right here. Whether this is a good thing or bad thing is up to you. For me, that's a good thing.

    2nd purchase or upgrade

    I originally bought the Klipsh headphones that are twenty dollars less than these and they blew me away. I only upgraded because the less expensive ones weren’t in stock. Oh, and I left the other previous ones in a hotel, nothing was wrong with them.The only difference is these can switch between mic and ear piece,or some button/switch I would never use. I was willing to pay the extra cost just to have a pair of klipsh. The funny or ironic thing is I sold my Bose Noise Cancelation Bluetooth headphones, which I purchased for over 300 bucks. The Bluetooth is over rated. I would rather have one cord plugged directly into the phone than a rechargeable annoying necklace or whatever around my neck and these sound better! Way better!

    Great evolution of Klipsch headphones

    I'd previously owned and been very happy with Klipsch's older S4i headphones, so when I lost them before an international flight, trying Klipsch's latest version was the obvious option. And I'm glad I did. The Reference R6i II headphones are like a version of my old headphones that are better in nearly every way: the frequency response is more even, the audio is clearer, and the new drawstring storage bag is easier to use than the old zippered case. Klipsch has even refined their already-good earbud tips to be more comfortable and better-fitting. These are considerably quieter than the S4i headphones they replaced, but that's not all bad: the older model was so sensitive that they became unusably loud incredibly quickly.

    Great Budget Earphones!

    At bed time I used for years UE 900 earphones, they are broken now, waiting to go for hi-end ones I saw these klipsch on sale at Best Buy and I gave them a shot: very comfortable, decent isolation, when they are in perfect position great quick bass, perfect for tablet or cellphone. Overall the sound is more than good, is not audiophile quality but you don’t need any Amp or DAC/Amp to make them sound loud and clear, there is not distortion at high volume. Price is the best and if you don’t mind the short cable these are Great Budget Earphones.

    Outstanding replacing my old Sennheiser earbuds

    After a short breaking in period where the bass was a little too boomy and the treble too muted, things have truly evened out. These earbuds are so extremely comfortable. The seal is nice and secure thanks to the oval earbud shape, and they reproduce very accurate sound. The bass went from boomy to punchy, and the treble is crisp and clear. The mids have a very up front character to them, which some people might not like (I do, as it helps to bring out the guitars in the rock and jazz I listen to.) My only wish is that the separation was a little wider in the sound field, but I typically listen to some Sennheiser over the ears at home so I am spoiled in that regard. For under $100, there are incredibly solid. A great buy.

    Great headphones

    These headphones are great. The sound is clear and crisp with enough punch for all kinds of music. They fit great in my ear. my one change I made was to put Comply foam tips on it and it took them to a whole new comfort level. I am not a huge fan of the rubber tips on any headphones, but they were adequate. The comfort and fit with the contour of the headphone itself is really good, and with the comply tips really keeps out outside noise. I would recommend these to anyone looking for a new set of headphones.

    Bassey yet shimmery

    There is a bit of cable noise, and a bit of tinkering was needed to find the appropriate ear tip for a good seal, but after that I’d havta say that these are some pretty sweet sounding ear buds. The price is reasonable. The sound definitely brings the bass but sacrifices clarity in some tracks. The highs are crisp without ever going shrill. I enjoy these headphones very much and would be happy to recommend them.

    These headphones are amazing. I try to wear them as much as possible and every time i use them im blown away. The mids lack a little but nothing disappointing. The high's and bass are incredible. Crank them to max and no distortion whatsoever . I bought them on sale for Klipsch annual sale and i wouldnt care if they were original MSRP. If your looking for a great pair of headphones trust me you wont be disappointed!

    Left earbud dead after 6 months 17 days..

    While the sound quality from these earbuds was fantastic today they just stopped producing sound in my left earbud rendering them useless. Not the kind of build quality I expect when I spent $90 on these earbuds and as a lifelong Klipsch customer I'll be rethinking further purchases from Klipsch from now on. $90 for 6 months of use is totally unacceptable.

    I've previously owned several pairs and been very happy with Klipsch's older S4i headphones. The R6i II headphones are like the old S4i headphones but improved. The audio is so clear and is practically perfect. Klipsch has even refined their earbud tips to be more comfortable and even better fitting. I like the new drawstring pouch versus the zippered case as well.

    I’d been wanting to buy these for awhile since I have some Klipsch speakers & know how good they are but was reluctant to buy them simply because they’re wired; not Bluetooth. Yet am so glad that I finally bought a pair! Which sound so much better than the more expensive Bluetooth earphones that I have! I love listening to music through them!

    Products is outstanding. The sound is awesome. Everything is very clear. I use this for meetings and compiling minutes. Very comfortable and fits nicely in the ears. I use them for personal use also. The documents in the package reference a bag for storage. Apparently, it was inadvertently excluded.

    The head phones are wonderful and are not wifi so that is what I wanted. The music is clear. I can control the volume. They are great for running and for relaxing by the pool. I have searched for head phones like these and have not found them at other retail stores. best Buy sales person helped me make a great choice. I recommend them very highly.

    The BEST little investment you can make if you are an audiophile like me. It is true in some cases that you get what you pay for. These by far are the BEST Stereo reproducing earbuds. Try them what have you got to lose I believe Best Buy has a 15 day Return Policy in place so if you don't like them return em

    These Earbuds sound very very good. They are comparable to the ones I had before which also sounded very good. They bass, the mids, and the highs come through very well. You can definitely hear the bass in them too. They are well worth the price.

    My much loved previous pair of earbuds, (Vibe V-Moda) finally died and I was looking for a good replacement. These Klipsch Reference R61 II phones are perfect. I often work on my laptop in an occasionally loud environment and these do a great job of blocking out extraneous sound. Highly recommend!

    These ear buds are light yet do a solid job of blocking ambient noise while being extremely comfortable to wear for long periods of time. The sound is crip and clear thru its range and they manage this regardless of whether you're listening to music or audio books. Highly recommended.

    I actually bought these as a replacement set of Klipsch headphones that were several years old and needed to be updated. As soon as I put them in my ears I knew the quality would be just as good, if not better. Great sound, good outside noise dampening, and comfortable. Love these!
