Our take on the Klipsch A5i by Crutchfield's David Brown
Save your energy for the workout
When you're working out you want your music to distract you, not your headphones. The Klipsch A5i sport headphones are designed to stay comfortably in place so you're not expending precious energy keeping them in your ears. The wrap-around design provides a secure fit around your ears even during intense exercise, and the customizable flex wires angle each earpiece into your ear canal and keep them there. They also help maintain a proper seal in your ear, so you hear all the details they bring out in your music, from sparkling high frequencies all the way down to deep bass. They may be designed for active use, but their dynamic sound makes the A5i a great pair of headphones for everyday use as well.
Water-resistant in-line remote and microphone
Don't let a little rain keep you from using music for inspiration on that five-mile run. The A5i is sweat- and moisture-resistant, because your headphones ought to be as tough as you are. The durable cable is tangle-resistant and features a slim in-line remote and microphone. Skip tracks, crank up the volume and even take phone calls with your iPhone® with one-touch convenience. The remote also has a built-in clothing clip for securing to a jacket or t-shirt, helpful in keeping the cable under control and out of your way. And you'll always know exactly where the remote is.
The A5i comes with a carrying case and an assortment of soft, oval-shaped ear tips. Select the pair that gives you the most natural fit for long-lasting comfort and the best sound quality these sport headphones can deliver.
