Hey Riyas, thanks for the review :)





Just a quick question:


Will you be reviewing the new X5 version of the Images as well?


I was thinking that it would be nice to have a comparison of the X5 vs the X10 and a comparison between the X5 and similar models since the X5 are considerably cheaper.

I'd tried in ear headphones before (sennheiser cx95) and found them uncomfortable.


However after reading review after review raving about in ear phones, then reading yours about how light these aer I went for a set as I managed to get them for £96.


All I can say is wow!


They are so comfortable and the sound is phenomenal.


Admittedly I'd moved from some Sennheiser mx660 earbuds however I just can't believe the difference!


Thanks TR

Can't disagree more about the noise transmission through these headphones - it is absolutely terrible, worse than any other headphones I have previously owned.





Yes, sound quality is good (although not as good as my old Shure's - not as much separation in the soundstage) and they are extremely comfortable...much more than Shure's. But, the cable noise transmission is terrible, to the point where it ruins your appreciation of the headphones. There is excessive friction noise coming through the cable - unless you are listening at very loud volumes you can hear this friction through the earphones if you so much as move your head when seated...so trying to use them for exercise is right out. And it doesn't matter which ear buds you use as all of the ones supplied have the same problem as the noise comes up the cable, not in from 'outside'. It really isn't acceptable in a pair of headphones of this cost and I would recommend sticking with better known makes such as Shure.





I have written to Klipsch support twice to query this and have received no response at all...so for me 2/5 and very disappointing...
