Klipsch Custom 1 sound-isolating earphones review

 

The Klipsch Custom 1s are unusual in terms of fit, but worth the money if you're a fan of vocally-driven and unplugged music, such as jazz, country and folk. As long as your music taste plays to their strengths, they're a good entry-level model, but,...

Warm and balanced sound ; Solid build for the price ; Well-suited to vocal and acoustic music

Not ideal for electronic or heavily synthesised music ; Takes a while to get used to the fit

If you're in love with heavy metal, modern pop, dance and electronica, take a look at the Sennheiser CX 95s, Denon's AH-C551s or Etymotic's ER-6is

Best Sound Quality Ever

 

I bought it from TD a month back - the best sound that I have heard ever - Klipsch knows how to deliver sound and I paid 49.00 for Custom 1 - compared to Custom 2 and 3 - this is the best bang for the buck - I use it with my computer, my iPhone while...

Best so far

 

In the last 5 years I have been through 4 sets of ear-buds. These sound better to my ear than either of the Shure E-3's that I have owned, and seem to be of more substantial build quality. I appreciate the ear hangers. The bass is very substantial and...

best earbuds i have ever owned

 

These Ear buds are great, the medium sized gels fit perfectly and sound quality is excellent. I find you do have to shove them into your ears in order to get the full effect, if you don't, they sound like crap. I am a student and use them mostly when i...

Poorly designed

 

I'm not sure about everyone else who submitted reviews. Maybe they don't workout while they wear these. The design directs the sweat off of our head into your ear holes. I had a pair of Sure earbuds before I got these. I chose the cheap out, and it was...

Unbelievable performance for the money

 

Extremely well made. Cloth cord does not tangle and will not stick to you. Sound quality is superb. Only caution is they provide extreme isolation and you will not be able to hear any ambient sound. These are the most comfortable in-the-ear headphones...

Consumer review by:

For me, these are junk.

 

Absolutely no bass to speak of. My $10 Koss headphones blow these away. I tried all the ear buds and nothing made any difference. These are getting returned. Even at an $80 discount I feel these were worth about $5. Sorry.

They Don't Fit My Ears

 

I bought two sets of these headphones, one for me and one for my wife. She loves hers. The medium ear gels fit her ears perfectly. For me, even the large ear gels don't fit my ears and the sound suffers because of it. NO BASS. If only they would issue...

Good if you don't know what your listening for.

 

I was excited when these arrived at my office a couple weeks ago but after about a good hour or two, I took them off and put my old ones back on. Maybe my product was defective but the range and depth of sound on these were horrible. If you play...
