Klipsch In-Ear Headphones Creates Music Bubble

By Mendelson Tiu | Friday | 03/10/2008

The new Klipsch Image X5 headphones not only look good, but also sound brilliant.

Out of the box, the package contains the X5 headphones, 10 ear gels, a cleaning tool, an airplane adapter, and a carrying pouch. The headphone's in-ear form factor means that it can isolate outside noise naturally, letting you enjoy music with minimal disturbance. The X5 comes with a cable cinch that allows a user to wear the audio cord behind their head and cinch it up in order to keep the 50-inch (1.27m) cord out of the way.

The headphones uses the single-flange, medium-sized ear gel, although users can change the ear gels according to preference. For maximum comfort, the pack includes three sizes of single flange ear gels (small, medium, and large), and two sizes of double flange ear gels (small and large). These ear gels will affect not only the fit and comfort, but sound quality as well.

The cleaning tool provided is used to remove wax build-up from the ear gels and nozzle.

Finding the right fit is a trial and error process, with it taking us three attempts to find the right fit. After that, its smooth sailing: the headphone stayed in place and did not feel as intrusive as other in-ear headphones. And because of the snug fit, it was able to isolate background noise in our office, leaving us to enjoy our music in peace.

We were impressed with the X5's overall performance. On tracks like Metallica's "The Day That Never Comes", vocals were warm, cymbals were clear and crisp, and the bass was deep and punchy. Dance tracks like Sneaky Sound System's "Kansas City" also sounded good, with the bass complementing the vocals without distorting other instruments.

Overall, the X5 is a great set of in-ear cans that you can use during your long commute. It will envelop you with music any time of the day, and is a sure fire way to block noisy conversations anywhere. The Klipsch X5 is available now with an RRP of $299.

LG Australia has finally rolled out their 65" Ultra High Definition TV offering in Australia and what you get is a TV that delivers a quantum leap in TV technology and surprisingly a significantly improved sound system that is delivered from pop down speakers but the big question is whether it is worth $6,999.
