It seems hard to believe that it has been five years since Klipsch released the Image X10 in-ear headphone, the world’s smallest and lightest. Shortly after its release came the slightly larger and $100 cheaper Image X5 for $250 and then the Image X10i which added a remote and mic at $350. However there was never an Image X5i for people with iPhones
In a few weeks, these headphones will be mine! They are the Klipsch Image X10i headphones with inline microphone and iPhone/iPod controller. Did I mention they are also the world’s smallest headphones?!
Be sure to check back here for an in-depth review. Though, since I have tested out a similar model, the Klipsch Image X10, I can already say it will be mostly a love fest. Taking into consideration their size, comfort, price, features and performance, these are perhaps the best in-ear headphones ever made.
Meanwhile, I will continue to love my Koss PortaPros. I must say, I have never gotten so many compliments on the looks of my headphones and there hasn’t been a day of wearing the Koss’s out that I didn’t get a compliment. Today I was told at Starbucks, while paying my rent, at Kaldi’s Coffee and at an art gallery that my headphones were cool looking, awesome, really interesting etc.
I’d recommend these headphones to anyone who needs a great set of headphones for an unbelievable price. Only $35 on Amazon and they out perform several $100+ headphones out there. Only two warnings. They are open headphones so you won’t block out any outside noises and people can hear what you’re listening to. Second, their headband catches on your hair if it’s long, and even mine sometimes. Other than that, amazing.
Ok, enough nerding out over headphones. Time to get ready for work!
