Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
I am definitely not a fan of the packaging & for this price. there aren't a lot of accessories to go around. But now for the real evaluation, these IEM'S (in ear monitors) are very solid as far as the the build quality is concerned, the iPhone controller could have been left off to as far as I'm concerned. The sound quality is very balanced and natural sounding, you must remember that klipsch has been building loud speakers for a very long time...so they know what there doing. these IEM'S have a dynamic and an armature driver, now i recently learned the difference between the two...if you want that deep low bass you want headphones that have a dynamic driver in them, its almost like having an actual round speaker in them, armature drivers on the other hand are made more like rectangular cubes for more of a precise sound and they don't provide the same type of bass thump. Before i bought the klipsch i had purchased the audio fly af160's which has 3 armature drivers in them along with a passive crossover....needless to say i wasn't impressed, my klipsch image s2's blew them away in the bass category. Im running these off an fiio E12 mout blanc headphone amp with the bass boost enabled, depending on what you're listening to, the bass in these babies really do sound like you have a subwoofer playing in your head without sounding to boomy...the mids and highs that come from the armature driver aren't overly bright or harsh, they play pretty flat and sound natural
Pros: these provide plenty of bass for in ear headphones & they play better with a headphone amp (i recommend getting one to get the most out of them)...i recommend buying if you don't mind the price.
Cons: comfort wise these are okay, if you place them snuggly in your ear they seal off the outside pretty good and you definitely won't hear anything but the music when they're in use...the mids and high could use a slight bump up, but that depends on your personal listening preference.
