In-ear sound isolating earphones are convenient and can offer very high levels of audio clarity and detail. Klipsch have been steadily releasing some truly excellent earphones over the last couple of years, and the Klipsch Image S4 is no exception. Klipsch Image X5s are compatible with iPods, iPhones and other portable devices.
The sound is a quantum leap up from the cheap earbuds supplied with most MP3 players, with warm deep bass and plenty of detail in the trebles.
This type of earphone is designed to seal in your ear canal, which means you can listen uninterrupted by the noise around you. Though noise-cancellation models do better in the presence of internal combustion engines, the X5 is especially good for low-level (and therefore safe) listening in noisy outdoor locations. Noise Isolating Design attenuates outside noise by an amazing 26db.
* Small, lightweight in-ear headphone design
* Precise, comfortable fit for long-term wear
* Balanced full range driver
* Tuned bass-reflex system
* Superior noise cancellation (passive)
* Works with the iPod, iPhone and other devices
Well balanced sound, easy in-ear fit and beautiful design make this earphone a winner in it's class. If you are prepared to spend more on your earphones, the Klipsch Image X5 is an excellent introduction to the world of higher end in-ear canal sound isolating headphones.
