Looks like there aren't enough negative mentions yet.
I've previously owned two pairs of Sony XBA-H1's (<$150) but due to them being discontinued I decided to give these Klipsch a try. Overall sound quality is OK, with good mid's and high's, but the lack of bass was the dealbreaker for me. Other features like the inline remote is placed too high and the cord feels really cheap. The only thing I liked was the comfortable fit. Needless to say, I returned these the very next day. If you are going to spend this kind of money for premium sound, look elsewhere.
No, I would not recommend this to a friend
