Klipsch Custom 3 headphones

 

Klipsch is a relatively new player in the headphone game, but its reputation as a high-end speaker manufacturer dates back to the 1940s. Building on the success of the company's knockout Image X10 earphones, the Klipsch Custom line delivers impressive...

The Klipsch Custom 3 in-ear headphones offer rich sound with dramatic bass, rugged construction, tangle-resistant cables, multiple ear tips, and effective noise isolation.

The Klipsch Custom 3s are relatively large, lack foam ear tips, tend to emphasize bass, and touch more of your ear than traditional consumer earphones.

If you're looking for a stylish pair of in-ear headphones that don't lack for low end and can withstand daily abuse, the Klipsch Custom 3s are an expensive treat.

It's a high end product, no doubt. Nonetheless, it is worth the money if you have a high expectation of sound whether listening to your MP3 player, your portable DVD player, or even you video game on your laptop. The Klipsch Custom 3 provides rich...

Klipsch Custom-3 In-Ear Headphones

 

Late in 2007 the venerable speaker manufacturer Klipsch entered the high-performance earbud fray, introducing three Custom-series in-ear headphones (the -1, -2, and -3, in ascending order of performance and price), plus the distinctive, top-of-the line...

The Custom-3s are wonderful, well-balanced earbuds that deliver serious high-end performance in every sense of that term. If $299 seems like crazy money to spend on in-ear headphones, consider this: you’d have to spend ten times that much (or maybe...

Klipsch Custom 3 Earphone

 

A few months ago, I did a review of the Klipsch IMAGE earphones. They were, quite simply, the best earphones I had every listened to - and I have listened to just about every earphone released in the past few years. When I spoke with the members of the...

Earphone choice is very personal and subjective - having compared these to other dual driver designs from Ultimate Ears, Shure, Westone and more - I definitely give the nod to the Klipsch Custom 3's. There is no way to appreciate the sound quality of...

Klipsch Custom 3 Headphones

 

Portable music has become a part of our everyday lives, and finding decent headphones is sometimes an uphill battle -- until now.

Klipsch is known more for its high-end speakers than its headphones; however, the Custom 3 set shows that, even in a market segment owned by companies like Shure and Sennheiser, there's still room for another sinfully high-end player. The Custom 3...

Klipsch Custom-3 earphones review

 

Although not a pair of earphones we'd recommend to a user wanting extreme comfort, the Klipsch Custom-3 earphones are without question a pair we'd recommend for their sound quality -- balanced, powerful and bursting with detail

Performance with jazz, vocal, acoustic and folk music ; Extremely balanced, clear and detailed sound

Design and fit ; High end lacks a certain brightness

If you want to maintain the Klipsch voice, but see comfort as the most important thing in a pair of sound-isolating earphones, check out the Klipsch Images -- you'll sacrifice some sound quality, but gain as much in fit and convenience of design

Klipsch Custom-3 Noise Isolating Earphones

 

Klipsch turns up the heat on Shure with a new set of dual-driver noise isolating earphones.

Despite being larger and heavier than the Images, the Custom-3s are still very light and comfortable in your ear. More importantly though, the dual-driver design makes for a broader sound, with more impact at the low end than the Images could manage.

The Custom-3 'phones are bursting with detail, warmth and power, but their design and fit won't suit everyone.
