I'd rather have a pair of Klipsch earbuds:
I have been waiting for these Klipsch earphones to come out for quite some time. I have always been a fan of the Klipsch sound - my entire home theater system is based on Klipsch floor standing towers and their center and surround speakers. I was impressed with the iGroove iPod speaker system and I was wondering how they could translate the "Klipsch Horn" into an earphone.
I need to preface my remarks about sound quality with a reminder that I have been most fortunate to test pretty much all this big names in earphone design. I have listened to amazing earphones from Ultimate Ears, Shure, Audio Technica, V-Moda, Altec Lansing, Sennheiser and others. That being said, I have never heard anything that rivaled what I heard when I put the IMAGE earphones in my ears. I really did not think that I could be that blown away - but I was.
There are no real good superlatives to describe the quality of the sound that these tiny earphones put out.
Custom 3 w/electronic crossover, or the less pricey $199 woofer/tweeter Custom 2's are what I'd get over any others simply for the oval gel shaped ear pieces.
Klipsch headphones utilize patent-pending Contour Ear Gels that are anatomically designed to accurately fit inside the human ear canal. These soft, oval silicon tips reduce ear fatigue as well as provide an amazing seal for excellent noise isolation and bass response.
Klipsch Headphones - flex wireBecause ear canal measurements vary, Klipsch headphones come with five different washable ear gel sizes: small, medium, and large single flange designs as well as small and large double flange designs. Extra small sizes can be ordered via the Klipsch.com web store. Such variety allows these earphones to fit more of the population than the competition.
For perfect exterior comfort, the Klipsch Custom Series' flexible ear wires bend over and around the ears so they can be customized to each user. And not only do these adaptable wires provide optimal comfort, they also let users experience full or partial noise isolation—a great safety feature for on-the-go users. Just pull the ear gels out of the ear canals and adjust the wires to firmly position the earphone nozzles over the canals.
