What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Klipsch R6i Black
  • Light weight and great sound. Multiple ear budds to fit all ears.
  • Been going through lighter weight Apple headsets which don’t hold up well. Thia headset is more rugged, good sound & voice quality.
  • They're light weight, very comfortable in the ear, and provide quality sound. I recommend these for active listeners.
  • They stay in your ears due to their light weight. Highs are distinct but not tinny or annoying. Well worth the money.
  • These are very light weight and sort of flat back neans you may be able to lay down head in side and be comfortable ysing these.
Klipsch X4i Earbuds with Playlist Control
  • I particularly like Klipsch for the fit and angle of the earbud as well as the quality of the sound. These were my first earphones in the X-series.
  • Love the sound quality and design as it fits perfectly in my ear.
  • These headphones sound great and fit well. Try the larger size ear tip and listen for at least 10 hrs and you'll notice you get much more bass.
  • These headphones sound great and fit well in the ear. I was skeptical about the ribbon wire at first, but it really does help to prevent wire tangles. Great headphones and definitely worth the purchase!
  • I tried the default fitting, the medium-size dual-flange fitting, and the largest fitting. The largest works by far the best with my ears--bass is in a whole different world when you have a solid seal in your ear.

What customers say about "Features"
Klipsch R6i Black
  • Phone calls works great...sounds very clear...sound with music is good as well. When running I do have a hard time keeping them in my ears.
  • These are great earbuds. Amazing sound and work with my iPhone well. Just wish they were wireless.
  • Amazing sound and quality. Only downside is they don't stay in my ears the best.
  • I needed buds for when riding my scoot. They have great and and easy to operate.
  • Excellent sound for earbuds. It also comes with a handy carrying case, and different sizes for people of all ear sizes.
  • The sound quality from these r6i are great. But but the controls dont work with the Andriod why would they limit you to just this model?
Klipsch X4i Earbuds with Playlist Control
  • They're especially nice as blocking out sound, but it's not so much that you can't still be aware of your surroundings.
  • As I read in the other issues, the lack of base leaves a lot to be desired for audiophiles. Beyond that, the speakers work better than advertised. I've purchased Klipsch earphones in the past and they always sound great.
  • The product works fairly well. Sound isolation is pretty good. Doesn't protrude from my ears very much so I can even sleep with them in my ears if needed.
  • The sound is crisp, nothing is overpowering the other. It is a well balanced earphone and small and well built. You won't have to worry about it falling off your ear. Might not be the number one choice for bass lovers.
  • Excellent fit and form, poor function and sound quality.
  • The drunk sound guy at the grimy rock club I used to hang out at in Jersey could make bands sound better than these earbuds.
