The Klipsch® Image in-ear headphones are so compact and lightweight you'll probably forget you're wearing them — until you turn on your MP3 player and they fill your ears with transparent, natural sound. Each earbud uses a tiny precision armature that delivers clear highs and mids and deep bass. The armature is smaller and more efficient than the more traditional mini drivers found in many in-ear headphones, and it's the key to the Image's innovatively compact design.

Klipsch's oval silicon ear gels match the shape of the human ear canal better than round inserts. They give you an extraordinarily snug, comfortable fit and a tight seal that improves bass and reduces ambient noise. Plus, these earbuds sport sophisticated looks, thanks to their aluminum casings with anodized copper sheathing.

Headphones: Great sound whenever and wherever

The right pair of headphones can solve a number of problems: listen to music and movies at night without keeping your family awake, take your favorite music with you while jogging or doing yard work, or get relief from distracting noise while working or traveling. Replace the cheap eabuds that came with your portable player with a high-quality pair, and discover more detail in your music. Or choose a set of full-sized 'phones for rocking out at home. Noise-canceling models use built-in microphones to pick up background sound and then cancel it out electronically.

The Klipich Image

Written by: Dr. Stephen from Mississippi on November 23, 2008

I was in the airport going back home from a vacation when I realized that I had left my headphones in the Hotel. I can't travel with out my tunes so I go looking for some new ones because all high end, low end "in ear" earbud headphones hurt my inner ear because you must jam them in your ears to proper music range which 10 minutes of ear can't take that. Someone recommended a Klipsch Image. They were it.
I was shocked. I didn't half to jam them in. The sound reproduction was what I consider "Studio quality", the full rang of sound. Noise canceling...I hardly new I was on A jet (4.5 hour flight), didn't disturb the other guests in the cabin. Now I use them everywhere and have purchased a second pair for work.
True Comfort, true sound. Low profile...I can even go to sleep in them.
Size and comfort are not a compromise for Studio sound and noise canceling technology. I love these and recommend them highly.



Best Earbud Headphones!!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The Klipsch Image Earphones are by far the best I have tried yet. Very comfortable for extended wear, and the sound quality you would expect from Klipsch. Bass response is pretty good considering the size. The price is high, but well worth it!

Product Research


Sound Isolating Technology: The Klipsch Image's in ear design works like an earplug to block background noise. This enables you to listen at lower volumes even in loud environments.

Driver Design: The Images use exclusive KG926 balanced armatures for deeper bass, a more robust midrange, and clearer high notes.

Connecter: The earphones have an attached 50" cord which terminates in a gold-plated, right angle 1/8" stereo mini plug. Two adapters are included; an 1/8" to 1/4" for use with home components, and an 1/8" stereo to dual 1/8" mono mini-plug adapter is included for use on commercial airlines.

Fit: Ear sizes vary, so the Image comes 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 from Klipsch directly. The ear gels are anatomically designed oval, not round, to better fit the typical ear canal. The flexible gels contour to the inside of your ear to create a comfortable, secure fit that won't fall out when you move. For exterior comfort, flexible ear wires bend over and around the ears and can be customized to each user.

Cable: The cable has strain relief designed at every cable connection point to avoid wire damage.

Carrying Case: The earphones come with two hard sided cases. The smaller case holds just the earphones and the larger case is big enough to accommodate the included accessories, and most iPods.
