Made for iPhone, iPod, and iPad

The Klipsch R6i's tangle-resistant cable features built-in controls for the iPhone and other Apple devices. Play and pause music, skip forward or back, and control the volume with the three-button remote. The remote also has a built-in microphone, so you can make calls with your iPhone.

No, they are not wireless but the sound from these earbuds is far superior to what came with my iPhone. I primarily use them at the gym and the the sound quality is excellent. I'd highly recommend these to anyone that does not need their earbuds/headphones to be wireless. Klipsch never disappoints.

  • Sound Quality

Light weight and an easy fit on the ears. They are comfortable for ear buds. The flat cord makes for zero tangles when stuffed in your jacket pocket. For the price, low's are good, mid's are decent, but the high's could have been better. Not as crisp as others I've tried or owned in this price range. These ear buds show to have good balance when listening to various other genres . Overall a good everyday ear bud for day to day use. I commute on foot to work. It gets the job done.

Pros: Tangle Free Cord Lightweight Noise Reduction Does a great job keeping the music to yourself when cranked up Carrying Case

Cons: High's - clean it up Mid's - add more warmth Phone controls - round up the edges a bit (it gets stuck on my collar constantly)

Very Comfortable

I have never been comfortable putting a foreign object in my ear, all the dome type earbuds I have previously owned have never fit properly and sealed comfortably and eventually would fall out during any activity no matter what cup size I used. I should have bought style a long time ago. They go right in with little effort, seal tight enough so they don't slip out and they are as comfortable as can be expected for having something inserted in your ear. The sound is very good with good bass and all the little nuisances you don't hear with loose fitting earbuds you will hear with these. For the money I am totally satisfied with these Klipsch ear buds. I would certainly recommend them to anyone who desires comfort as well as good sound. Good value and prompt delivery from Crutchfield goes without saying.

Pros: Comfortable and they stay put, good sound quality.

Cons: None

I purchased these for my wife who has found other in-ear headphones to be uncomfortable. The oval tips designed to fit the ear can and range of sizes provided allowed her to find a size that is comfortable for extended periods. The sounds is quite good also.

Pros: Comfortable tips, good sound

Cons:

I didn't think these sounded noticeably better than the earbuds than came with my iPhone 5S, and callers say that the microphone is much less clear than the standard earbuds. I was very disappointed with the product, given my experience with other Klipsch speakers, which have always been excellent.

Pros: More comfortable than standard (hard) iPhone earbuds.

Cons: Sound quality seems comparable to stock iPhone earbuds, not significantly better. Callers report that phone calls are less clear with the microphone than with standard iPhone earbuds.

Omg, there's no going back now! Took these on a bike ride as soon as they arrived, and even with the mp3 player on lowest volume, I could hear the singer breathe during the song. I'm hearing nuances I didn't even know existed in the music I've loved for years. I don't know who I love more--the musicians who made the music or the technicians who made these incredible Klipsch ear buds. This is what heaven sounds like.

Pros: No road noise comes through; music is clear, crisp, and warm; super comfortable even on long bike rides; stay in place;

Cons: none

Features

Overview: The Klipsch Reference R6i in-ear headphones deliver realistic sound, style, and comfort. Based on the legendary Reference home speakers, the R6i monitors are engineered for performance with superior innovation. The R6i comes with an in-line 3-button remote and microphone, so you can control your music and phone calls on your portable Apple devices.

Driver Design: The R6i is equipped with dual magnet, dynamic moving coil micro speakers that cover a wide frequency range (10Hz-19kHz) with realistic and dynamic sound. The drivers are housed in durable, lightweight aluminum and elastomer.

Comfort Fit Ear Tips: The Reference R6i features patented contour ear tips that are oval-shaped to naturally fit inside the human ear canal. The ear tips are made of soft silicon to provide an excellent seal to isolate noise and enhance bass response. Because they fit the natural shape of the ear canal, ear fatigue is reduced, so you can wear them for hours. Four sizes of ear tips are included, so you're sure to find the size that fits you best.

Flat Cable: The R6i includes a black and gray flat 48" audio cable. The flat design resists tangles to make it easier to store and transport the headphones. The rubberized coating on the cable reduces friction and contact noise. A movable yoke and an included clothing clip help to keep the cable under control.

3-Button Remote/Mic: The Reference R6i's in-line 3-button remote and microphone offers full control of your Apple iPod, iPhone, or iPad. The remote control lets you answer and end calls, turn the volume up and down, and control music playback (Play/Pause and Previous track/Next track). The remote/mic is located approximately 5" from the left ear bud, keeping it close to your mouth for best sound quality.

Carrying Case: The Reference R6i comes with a nylon zippered carrying case to store the headphones when not in use.
