Headphone Design

Headphone Type

Headphone type refers to the construction of the headphones.

Around the Ear means that the headphones wrap around the ear to provide a secure fit. This is most often seen in active and sports headphones.

Around the Neck means that the headphones wrap around the neck. This is also seen in active and sports headphones.

Earbuds means that the right and left sides of the headphones are separated and will fit securely into the ear. These are small, compact, and user friendly.

Over the Head headphones mean that the right and left speakers are connected with a support that goes over the head and rests on top. This is the typical headphone type.

Earbuds
Earpiece Design

This is the design of the earpieces on the headphones. Some headphones go inside the ear, while others rest on the outside of the ear. This helps you know exactly what type of headphones you will be receiving.

In-Ear: The ear buds go into the ear. Most often, the right and left ear buds are two separate pieces.

Enclosed-Ear: Usually are found on the larger headphones. They rest on top of the ear and have padding for comfort, as well as enclosing the ear to the speaker. This type of headphone helps to filter out surrounding noise.

On-Ear: This type of headphone involves the speaker sitting gently on the ear without going in the ear or sealing it off.

In-Ear
Specifically For
Some headphones can use an IR Transmitter in your vehicle, while some can be plugged into your media device and be used on the go or at home.
Home/Portable

Acoustic Principle
The basic design of the headphones. There are 3 different types: Open: Have ports that allow air through the back of the diaphragms, enabling the headphones to sound like the music is coming from an outside source. Closed: Completely sealed and have no air passing through the diaphragms. Sounds like you are in a closed off room. Semi-open: Have slots or ports in the back of the cup and are partially open. This allows for a mixed sound between an open and closed headphone.

General Features

Noise-Canceling
Noise Reduction technology removes unwanted noise from a signal. Background or ambient noise can be removed to produce clearer speech and enhanced hearing. Typically these Active Noise Canceling (ANC) headphones are powered and use batteries to activate the noise canceling technology. Also referred to as Noise Reduction or Noise Cancellation.
No
Headphone Connection
This is how the headphones connect to the audio source.

Corded means that the headphones use a cord to transfer the audio signal.

Wireless means that the audio signal is transmitted wirelessly to the headphones.

Corded
1/4" Stereo Jack Adapter
Some headphones will come with a 1/4" stereo jack adapter to connect the usual 3.5mm jack to a 1/4" stereo plug.

1/4" Stereo jack is a larger audio jack that select electronics have.

No
Volume Adjustment
Volume Adjustment means that the headphone (independent of the source) can adjust the playback volume. Many headphones and ear buds have in-line volume control, which allows adjusting the audible volume from a switch on the headphones cord. Other headphones have a volume knob on the headphone can.
Yes
Built-In Microphone
This means that the headphones or earbuds have a built-in microphone. This can be a microphone on the cord, built into the headphone, or even a boom microphone. These mics can be used for music devices like iPods, for Smartphones to make and receive calls, or for gaming purposes.
Yes
Frequency Response
The range of frequencies the speaker will reproduce (lowest frequency to the highest). Bigger is better, meaning the wider the range, the better. The optimal range is 20 - 20,000 Hz (which is the range of human hearing).
10 - 19,000 Hz
Sensitivity
An efficiency or sensitivity rating tells you how effectively a speaker converts power into sound. The higher the number, the more efficient the speaker and the louder it will play with the same input power. An efficient speaker helps you maximize your available power. Most sensitivity ratings measure the speaker's output with 1 watt of input, 1 meter from the speaker. Some speakers' sensitivity is measured with 2.83 volts of input, instead of 1 watt.
 
Efficiency (1w/1m) is not an accurate indicator of a subwoofer's output capability and should not be used as a comparison to other speakers or subwoofers to determine which one is "louder".
110 dB
Driver Size
This refers to the diameter of the driver (speaker) on each side of the headphone.
Driver Type
The physical design of the driver in the headphones.
Impedance
The opposition to electric current, a higher impedance means a higher electrical resistance. This is measured in ohms.

Good sound for the price

September 25, 2013

These headphones are awesome for their price. They have a flat response, not emphasizing nor minimizing any frequency range. I've read the plug is not very durable, but I'm the type of guy that takes care of my possessions and that hasn't happened to me, at least not yet. Very comfortable. Very glad I bought them.

Awesome earbuds

September 18, 2013

I ordered these earbuds after hearing positive reviews from my husband. I use them while walking a running. The sound quality is great and a big improvement over other less expensive ear buds. Can't beat the price- which was my Biggest influence in buying. Klipsch name speaks for itself also. Definitely would buy again. Only complaint is when I run then tend to 'slip out' of my ear- not Completely but enough that I keep Pushing in. I think this is just Me as this happens with every pair.

Horrible for iPhone 5 users!

September 17, 2013

Recently purchased these for everyday use. The third day of owning and using them the volume controller on the cable stopped working the headphones randomly activate Siri and turn the volume up and down on their own. I've tried then on multiple other phones, and only the iPhone 5 was it causing the Siri and volume issues.

I like my Klipsch earphones

September 17, 2013

This is my third pair of earphones. The others didn't like to stay in place while I was running. I have the Klipschs plugged into my iPOD nano. The Klipsch has a feature that by pressing a button the song's title & artist are spoken. A great product. Good quality sound; they were highly recommended.

Impressed - better than Bose!

September 17, 2013

I purchased these earbuds as a replacement for my Bose in-ear headphones. I was greatly impressed with the quality of sound produced by these Klipsch earbuds and the integrated technology. After listening for over 2 weeks, I believe that these earbuds exceed the performance of my previous Bose in-ear headphones. They came with a stainless steel carrier case, and have proven to be very durable in a variety of conditions. I highly recommend this product to friends/family who want a top-quality product at a very reasonable cost.

Great sound but the remote control is not very durable

September 17, 2013

I really like the sound quality of these however the remote control is not very durable. I wear them when I go running and after about a month, the play/pause button stopped working. I returned them for a replacement pair but about another month later again the play/pause button stopped working. Also, when running the buds do not stay in your ears very well.

Everyone should get one of these. Period.

Decent

September 16, 2013

Great sound. I find the ear buds, similar to all my Klipsch in-ear products, function best when 'inverted.' Stay in ears with little to no adjustment on 5 mile runs and in the gym.

Cons are the mic. Frequent complaints from those on the other end that they have difficulty hearing or the sound quality is poor. Ideal would be ear buds from these and mic from the original device.

Serviceable if need something for only when active.

Great Earbuds!

September 3, 2013

These klipsch headphones are a top quality product. I use them every day at work, at home, and at the gym. They have held up to 4 months of solid use, and I would definitely buy them again. The microphone works excellently and people never complain about call quality. Sound quality is superb, and you should know I am very picky about the sound coming from my speakers. I paid about $45 for them, and use them for my android phone. I can't change the volume, but am able to answer and end phone calls with the middle button and can also access and control my default music app. Hope this helps.

Doesnt Live Up to the Klipsch Name

You are better off geting a $10 set of in ear buds with an inline microphone. These are expensive but most likely made in the same factory with the klipsch logo.
