Too late to return


The worst sound quality. It worse than 10-year ago product

Consumer review by:

Good value


I was a home stereo enthusiast for many years, and Klipsh has always been right up there with Bose, Infinity and JBL. It's nice to see a good product out there that doesn't have pink skulls, Jolly Roger insignia, and three digit price tags.

The sound quality is the best I've heard in a while for any headset or ear bud. The soft ear pieces allow for a seal in the ear canal providing noise cancellation and comfort. Came with extra pieces ; For me, this is important because I have an...

I have read other comments about the "button" being a drawback, but I have no problem with the mic or any other feature

Great Deal, great sound


For these to fit me, I have to wear them with the wire pointing UP, and wrap the wire behind my ear. This is my preferred style, so it is great for me, but if you are trying to wear them with the wire dangling straight down, that might be the problem....

Great Fit, great sound, I've had sever sets of these and love them all, especially for $12. They may not fit everyone well, but they fit me well

I prefer not to have a button/control, but this particular set was on sale at the time

great for the price. it's Klipsch


People who rate these low need to learn to use them. They must be inserted properly to get full frequency response. A vacuum needs to be created or they will sound thin. They come with different size tips, find out which works best for your ears.

Surprisingly good sound. Nice frequency response

Not really any with out being picky

Klipsch S3m Red


These sound similar to my Grado SR60 headphones except on the low end. My previous earbuds were sanheisers and these are an improvement over those.

These work a lot better than my previous ear buds. The seal is good enough that I can listen to music while mowing the lawn or riding in an airplane. Blocks out enough noise so that you only hear your music

Bass is weak, not really there but I've never heard buds that did have a good full range

Klipsch S3


Great fix (in wrong ears) ; Mic works great ; Very Good sound isolation

Not the S1 (my favorite ear buds ever) ; I could not get good seal with ear buds in the correct ear, had to put left in right and right in left. Now works great (the only reason i didnt give 5 stars)

Worst Ear buds I have Ever Owned



If you are looking for ear buds that stay in your ears only when you are completely still, these are the perfect pair for you. If you do any movement though you will get frustrated very quick. I got these ear buds to use when I work out, but I spend...

Poor Choice


None I could find

These were a major disappointment. I trusted the Klipsch name in sound, but no more. These lack any bass, sound tinny. No name earbuds I've owned for years sound better

Good Headset, gets the job done, great price


If you want Khipsch brand name in your backpack without breaking the bank this is it. Their X-Series is awesome. I have owned 1 for 3 years and use it 8 Hrs a day everyday, sometimes more, driving flying, I have tested it in seat 33A of Delta McDonnell...

Cheap ; Good Sound ; Sound Isolation type ; Controls stuff thru the switch on the mike - tested the functionality, they work as described ; Has additional tips and pouch - added ; Clean finish, good looks, compliments any phone

The tips have to be adjusted using the ones provided and rotating them in your ear till they fit perfectly, oddly due to the dumble shape of the base if you don't adjust it, it'll fall off and keep slipping out and can be very annoying while you are on...

One of the worst headphones I have ever bought!


I have a collection of tens off different headphones and ear-buds ranging all the way up to $500.00. If you don't mind a naked, treble and annoying sound coming out of your headset, then buy it.

fits comfortably in the ear, nice to look at and made with good quality

This thing has the sound of a $5.99 headphones/ear-buds selling for over $30.00. I'm a long time Klipsch fan and some of my best equipment carry that brand on them. This is the worst product that I've seen from Klipsch
