Sound Signature

Sound Staging & Imaging
Sound Staging and Imaging refers to the ability of a pair of headphones to create the placement of instruments and vocalists in a recording. A small sound stage is very difficult to determine where the instruments are in relation to the vocalists, everything sounds like it's coming from the same place. An extra large sound stage separates the instruments and vocalists so that you can clearly tell where each is on the sound stage.
Clarity/Detail
Refers to how clear the headphones audio reproduction is.
Tone/Timbre
Refers to the quality of a music note that distinguishes different types of sound production (voices, musical instruments, etc.).
Bass
Refers to the bass performance of the headphones. Rated from Light bass to extreme bass.
Bass Detail
How accurately a headphone can reproduce bass notes; a culmination of attack, speed, decay and clarity. Attack is how precisely it can begin a bass note without delay. Speed is the ability to continue to attack an array of bass notes without lagging. Decay is the length of time after a bass note ends that the sound is still heard. Clarity is how easily all bass frequencies are heard. It gives perception of loose, tight, or muddy bass.

Headphone Design

Headphone Type

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
Headband 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.

Audio Features

Driver Type

The physical design of the driver in the headphones.

Balanced Armature:
A balanced armature driver uses a coil wrapped around an armature which is held in between two magnets until it is stimulated by an electrical current. When stimulated, this armature is magnetized which causes it to rotate one way or the other around a pivot point which moves the diaphragm to create sound. Balanced armature driver headphones are generally earbuds and can have multiple drivers in each earbud.

Dynamic:
Dynamic drivers are the most common driver type. They feature a permanent magnet, usually neodymium, a voice coil and a conical diaphragm to drive your music. A dynamic headphone driver looks pretty much identical to any typical home theater speaker.

Electrostatic:
Electrostatic drivers are made up of an extremely thin membrane, usually a coated PET film, stretched between two metal plates. An electrical signal is applied to the metal plates to create an electrical field which, depending on its polarity, draws the speaker diaphragm toward one of the plates which forces air through the perforations in the diaphragm which generates the sound wave.

Planar Magnetic:
A planar magnetic driver is made up of a large membrane suspended between two sets of oppositely aligned magnets. An electric charge is applied to the membrane to induce movement and produce sound waves.

Dynamic
Impedance
The opposition to electric current, a higher impedance means a higher electrical resistance. This is measured in ohms.
17 ohms
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".
107 dB
Driver Size
This refers to the diameter of the driver (speaker) on each side of the headphone.
6.5 mm
Power Output
Refers to the power output rating (in watts) of the headphones.
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
Audiophile
Audiophile headphones represent some of the finest headphones available. Audiophile headphones produce genuinely outstanding sound quality as well as extraordinary build quality, components and comfort. They are truly the finest headphones available.
Built-in Amplifier
This refers to whether the headphones have an amplifier built-in.
Amplifier Recommended
This refers to whether a separate headphone amplifier is recommended for use with a specific pair of headphones. It is highly recommended that any headphone with an impedance greater than 100 ohms be amplified.
Pass Throughs
Refers to whether a pair of headphones has an output to connect to another pair of headphones.

Good sound, better than average performance but certain parts brittle

September 17, 2013

The earphones are overall built really well. The audio cable is long enough for everything and is also Kevlar reinforced to make them that much more durable. The ear buds are comfortable and after the initial discomfort of the inner ear model you get used to them. The earphones loop around the ear nicely but you need to find the angle that suits you. Too much pressure or the wrong angle can make it feel a little painful. As long as you figure the right orientation and fit for you, you won't notice it sitting on your ear. They do sit there securely and don't fall off your ear. The inner ear phone might jostle around a bit and get loose based your head movements.

The sound quality is pretty good and it withstands rain and sweat quite well. Overall the product feels really well made, light enough and for the most part the construction is excellent.

The bit of cable that goes from the behind-the-ear plastic and the ear phones is made from a stiff plastic. The idea is that since its a firm cable it'll stay in your ear despite all the jostling and jumping you might do. Unfortunately for me, on the right ear phone this cable split on one side for about half an inch. The copper wires inside were visible but the sound quality wasn't compromised(yet). It's not a part that you can even tape up as it has to twist and bend to fit into your ear. Maybe a more flexible and less brittle plastic might have helped.

Simply incredible!

October 2, 2013

I have never found another pair of earbuds as nice as these. I used these all last season for snowboarding, and I am looking forward to doing it again this season. They are so incredibly versatile, I can have both earhooks on, but one of the earbuds tweaked out so I can hear everyone around me. The optional cable hook certainly secures them in place. All in all 10 out of 10!

Great product

November 3, 2013

I've owned 3 sets of Shure earbuds in the past, which cost 5 times as much as the Klipsch. Each lasted about 1-2 years& then stopped working for 1 reason or another & the factory could do nothing to repair them. These seem much more sturdy & their sound is on par to the Shure earbuds, for far less money.
Finally they work great with my Iphone 5.
