Our customers love their Klipsch speakers for their distinct sound and distinct looks. The X6i in-ear headphones offer both of those things in a highly portable design. These little earbuds are Klipsch all the way — from their sleek, copper-accented design to their powerful performance.

The X6i is the entry model into Klipsch's line of reference-quality "X series" headphones. These in-ear 'phones use a balanced-armature driver for a full-range sound that's even across all frequencies. You won't mistake them for the run-of-the-mill earbuds stuffed in the box with your phone — their sturdy enclosures look and feel heavy-duty. Plus, Klipsch gave the compact earpieces a unique, angled shape for a more secure fit.

Durable and comfortable

The X6i's design may not look "everyday," but you can feel confident grabbing them before you leave each morning. They're made of rugged materials that can withstand life on the go, whether thrown in a bag or secured in the included carrying case. And when you're listening to your tunes, Klipsch's patented soft oval ear tips keep you comfortable. They conform to the shape of your ear canal to isolate your music from outside noise and provide proper bass response. Five different sizes are included.

Control your iPhone®

On the tangle-resistant cable, you'll find built-in controls for the iPhone and other Apple devices. Play and pause music, skip forward or back, and adjust the volume with the three-button remote. There's also has a built-in microphone, so you can keep your iPhone in your pocket and answer calls.

Nice headphones at the sale price

DLL from Scituate, MA on 7/4/2016

I bought mine directly from Klipsch. Coolness factor is only in name brand I suppose,so three is all I could rate any manufacturer. Comfort is better in the summer with some humidity rather than in the winter when the air is dry. The right size ear buds are of extreme importance so choose the ones that stay in best. Noise reduction is good but these are not really made to be noise reducers. Build quality is very solid. The sound is very clear,the bass is there but not because of a muddied midrange. They may sound a little thin in the bass until you start hearing the clarity of the musical instruments in these. Voice reproduction is very good as it is in most Klipsch products. I do not like muddied sound and these do not do this. Drums sound believable on Klipsch headphones and speakers where on these same products by even other good manufacturers you have to sort of imagine they are there. Muddied bass is like having no bass. Clear sounding speakers and headphones one grows to like more in the long run and these headphones are clear. I paid the full price for these and I do not regret it.

Pros: As above
