Klipsch in-ear headphones -- upon further listening....

Klipsch Custom-1 headphonesJust wanted to share a quick note regarding my recent post comparing Klipsch headphones.

I went several days without listening to my Custom-1s, or any other headphones for that matter. Just this afternoon I fired them up on a track from the album Geogaddi by the trip-hop duo Boards of Canada -- and I was surprised again by how big and punchy everything sounded, including the bass. So ultimately, I think the Custom-1s hold their own nicely. If I hadn't ever compared them directly with the Custom-3s, I probably wouldn't have heard anything missing or lacking at all.

And also, a brief word of advice: with any in-ear headphone, getting the proper fit can have a huge impact on sound quality. Most of these headphones come with an assortment of earbud attachments, and it's worth your time to experiment with them in order to find the ones that create the most comfortable (yet complete) seal inside your ear canal. Otherwise, you may not be experiencing the best sound your 'phones can give you.
