    Pretty clean sound but a bit bass light

    I was looking for a replacement set of ear buds and it was a toss up between these and some more Skullcandy Ink'd buds. Overall, I rather like how clean these sound compared to previous ear buds I've owned. Everything is crystal clear with nice highs and decent mids. Listening to podcasts is especially nice as I can hear every syllable wonderfully. However, I will say that the Ink'd buds definitely have waaaay more bass than these do. An important tip: make sure you try all 3 sizes of tips to find the one that fits best. At first I was truly disappointed by the sound of these buds but once I put on the large tips (mediums comes pre-installed on these) I suddenly had some bass. Also note, that the way you position them in your ear makes a huge difference on how rich the sound sounds. Overall, they do sound nice, but wish they had more bass. Final note: I have yet to test these buds while walking/exercising/etc. Once I do I'll have to come back and update my review on how they fare in those environments.

    So, I guess everyone that reads this review is going to bash me. But I'm over Klipsch headphones. I'm not going to deny the powerful sounds that all Klipsch headphones have. But every pair of buds have broken down within a couple months. And these were not the exception. Got these from J & R Audio on sale for $35. I truly thought I was getting a deal of a lifetime. However, 2.5 months later, I'm searching for another pair. Look, Klipsch headphones have awesome sounds. But the durability is lacking. I've owned 5 pair of Klipsch earbuds. Every pair stopped working within 3 months, without fail. Poorly constructed earbuds that produce awesome sounds are not something I'm interested in, whatsoever.

    Kind of disappointed

    I had high hopes for these earbuds with a brand name like Klipsch, but my expectations fell a little short with these. The bass levels aren't as deep as an old pair of Sony buds I used to have and I really missed the lack of on-wire volume controls that the Sony buds had too. The ear buds are a tad uncomfortable compared to other models I've owned and the conical shape of the bud sometimes squeezes out of your ears over time and you have to constantly readjust to get the best sound. I was expecting a little more out of a mid-priced earbud such as these in comparison to other models I've owned.

    This is a very nice set of ear buds from the moment they come out of the box. they have the look and feel of quality and that effect is immediately translated into the sound the moment you put music through them. This is questionably the best set of ears buds I have ever owned but the only thing that keeps them from being perfect is that they dont fit and seat snugly and pop out easily. If not for that they would be absolutely perfect. the sound quality and range along with the fidelity is superb. I would definitely recommend these and will not be giving these away like I have others.

    This is my third pair of Klipsch headphones and I'll continue to buy them as I need replacements (I keep washing them otherwise I'd probably still be on my first pair). I appreciate the different size eartips (I have big ears) and the sound they produce is perfectly fine when you're talking about inexpensive headphones. I use these with my iphone and also as my computer headset when watching movies or listening to music after my wife and son are in bed. If these are within your budget I'd definitely suggest giving them a chance, I don't think you'll be disappointed.

    Great Sound, Bad Fit

    Klipsch knows how to produce great sound, unfortunately they fall far short on the comfort portion. The earbuds include 3 rubber tips (large medium and in ear canal). The large at least kept the earphones in my ear, but the shape of the earbuds themselves make it an awkward fit and they inevitably fall out. The third tip included seems to go right into my ear canal and while the sound is great they tickled the tiny hairs in my ear and came out looking gross. Returned product and will get the Audio-Technica ANC33iS noise canceling earbuds for a little bit more.

    Great sound, not the best quality

    I bought a pair & loved the sound quality they provided for my iPhone, iPad, etc. Exactly 1 week after I bought them, one of the cords going to an earbud just fell out. I moved my head & the left earbud disconnected. Needless to say I wasn't happy, nor was I happy with the way Best Buy handled the situation. Not only were the 3 sales associates I dealt with very rude (yes, it took 3 employees to figure everything out), but I still had my receipt, I just wanted to do an even exchange. They said no. I'll be shopping elsewhere from now on.

    These buds are unbeatable for comfort...nice snug fit that i use for hours....also, the talk controls and play functions on the unit work great for android....its nice to have an option as there are so many for IOS users......the sound is really good and gets to be even and balanced with some punch in the base as use continues or "burn in" as some have identified.....the soft case i find is much easier for on the go active users...so i highly recommend the purchase for these positives and for the price point Best Buy offers.....

    Okay earbuds for the money

    I thought these would have been a bit better for the money I paid. They seem to fit my ears okay, thanks to the 3 choices of gel tips. The sound openings can close up of you do not insert them in your ears properly. They produce plenty of volume, but lack the lows I was hoping they would deliver. I haven't tried out the mic for communicating yet. They are better than the really cheap ones, but you don't get the sound quality of $150 pair of earbuds in a pair that costs 1/3 the price.

    Good and affordable earbuds

    I should note that these are the most expensive earbuds I have ever purchased, normally I just the free one's that come with our phones now a days. This pair has good speaker quality, good price, and they stay in place for me while jogging. The only complain I would have would be a lack of individual fwd/back buttons - but I knew that going in. If you're looking for a pair of good ear buds that you can work out with and don't want to spend too much, these are a good option.

    A comfy and a snug fit for all sized ears

    Soft comfy and snug fit in the ear that won't slip out. Ideal buy if you have small ears or if standard headphones apply annoying pressure. Pricier than competitors. I purchased on sale and still found them to be over priced. If standard headphones fit you well don't waste your money on these. Quality and style are on par with competitors. I dont notice a difference in audio quality. I was sold alone on the interchangeable sizes that accomodated my small ears.

    This product is first buying this company and I must theyre great earphones for listening while traveling, outdoors, and excercising. Definitely would remember these to a friend and. Family members. What about this product is the bass and trebble are superb compared other earphones such as panasonic and JVC which I've in the past aldo. Love that they don't fall off your ear and like that they're nice and tight. Overall a great product that I enjoy using daily!

    Just about anything by the Klipsch brand is so expensive! I was browsing at the Best Buy store near my job and found these earphones on clearance! I needed some good quality earphones to use for Skype video chats on my computer and iPod, and these fit the bill! I have used them for listening to music from time to time, and the sound is still good, despite the lack of bass. I really don't listen to bass-heavy music, anyway!

    I am fairly pleased with my purchase. It is a bit hard to get a proper seal though, you kind of have to do a kind o twisting action. I wishi there were different tips. Im using the smallest that comes in a double flange design. which i am not used to. But really. Klipsch are my favorite. and they sound pretty good. I paid about $26 with tax for them so it was a great value too. the microphone works well. I use it mainly to skype and listen to music.

    I had previously purchased this brand before and got a lot of use out of them. These particular one's that I purchased have a microphone so you can answer telephone calls with them. These wires are a little longer than the standard phone earbuds. I actually like that, have more room to do stuff without carrying your phone around or worrying about knocking phone off desk. Decent price for quality product.

    I thought..."What a great deal," Klipsch branded earbuds for not an outrageous amount of money. The earbuds are okay, you get what you pay for. The name Klipsch is known for great products, that is probably the only reason I was disappointed. I wish there was volume control included and they do not stay in your ears as well as I hoped. But, if you get a great deal...no need to pass these up for an extra set of workout earbuds.

    Bought these on sale for $40 and they've been well worth it so far. Good levels of sound quality throughout the spectrum. The few calls I've made with them have been fine, but my clarity on the other end has just been so-so according to the other person so a good Bluetooth is still probably the way to go. If you can grab these for around $40-50 I can recommend them, but after that I think you can find better deals.

    Great Ear Buds

    Bought these ear buds after some careful research. The research turned out to be true. The audio reproduction was great. The buds were very comfortable and I would recommend getting these to anyone. When using an android phone, you use multiple button presses to control your music player. Klipsch provides an app to configure your phone. Any Cons? One of my beagles chewed both ear buds off the wires :(

    The free ear buds work as well. I will return the ones I paid for. In have free ear buds from the airlines that worked just as well. I was told these new ear buds would eliminate noise. I was also told musicians use these. I played horn for many years, but now only have one ear. I tried the free ear buds and the $50.00 ones, and I could hear no difference in sound and the background noise was the same.

    Basic ear buds with some nice features. I like the cord and it comes with a little travel case and three sizes of ear plug tips. I have Klipsch home theatre speakers so my expectations were probably too high, but the sound quality for me was pretty average. It's good on mid and high range but bass is low. I'm happy overall though.
