Klipsch X20i overview

  • 1Description

The black X20i from Klipsch are audiophile in-ear headphones designed for playing back music as well as taking calls from your iOS or mobile device. The headphones feature an injection-molded stainless steel housing, with two-way, broad-band balanced armature drivers designed for accurate sound reproduction, and a thick copper cable for high efficiency and lower noise. The X20is have an in-line directional mic and 3-button remote that is optimized to work with compatible iOS devices. Klipsch includes 5 pairs of their oval eartips to assure a comfortable fit while providing up to 26 dB of noise isolation.

Hear the Air
  • X20i is the most revealing in-ear headphone Klipsch has ever made. High frequencies are reproduced with unheard-of accuracy and bass is clear, full, and warm. The X20i sets a new standard in headphone acoustics. Powered by a true two-way dual armature design, the high-horsepower KG-926T woofer is mated to a high resolution KG-125B super tweeter. This results in a palpable sound character and makes X20i the broadest bandwidth in-ear headphone available from Klipsch
High Resolution Super Tweeter
  • The KG-125B super tweeter creates a truly transparent sound. With high-frequency performance created to take advantage of superb lossless recordings, this headphone delivers hi-hats and cymbals with lifelike realism
Surgical-Grade Stainless Steel
  • Injection-molded surgical-grade stainless steel is the primary material used in the X20i chassis. Complemented by a reverse hood scoop, X20i is one of the smallest and most durable two-way headphones on the market
Super-Slim Ear Tips
  • With the introduction of X20i comes the most comfortable ear tip we have ever designed. Pre-installed on the product, we have redesigned our most popular ear tip into a super slim form factor. After extensive research, our surveys lead to the conclusion that ear canals are even narrower than we had ever expected. The super slim ear tip addresses that by using an even narrower and more tapered design, enabling people who have never found in-ear monitors to be comfortable to wear them without fatigue. However, all ears are unique, so included with the product are five additional sizes to choose from
Interchangeable Cables
  • Complementing the groundbreaking design and acoustics of X20i is the ability to swap cables. Screw-type coaxial SSMCX connectors for both left and right sides allow for swapping cables or using custom balanced cables. Approximately 35% smaller than industry-standard MMCX connectors, X20i has all the advantages of interchangeable cables without any of the bulk
Advanced 3-Button Mic and Remote
  • Offers seamless control of your iPhone, iPad, or iPod while listening to music, watching movies and answering phone calls
iOS Compatibility
  • iPod touch (2nd, 3rd, 4th generation)
  • iPod classic (120 GB, 160 GB)
  • iPod nano (4th, 5th, 6th generation)
  • iPod shuffle (3rd, 4th generation)

    Klipsch X20i reviews

    X20i In-Ear Headphones (Black) is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Can't Enjoy Them After buying these for half a thousand dollars two months ago, I planned to enjoy them. I have been trying to do so since then, but the flat sound that other reviewers refer to is a real problem. Even an equalizer doesn't solve the problem fully. When I switch to my old Klipsch earbuds, which I bought 5 years ago for $150, I get a more pleasant sound. The X20i makes the music sound the way it would if you were standing with the musicians in the recording studio, with foam rubber and egg cartons on the walls to dull the sound. I'm too late to return them, but would do so if I could.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wallet-ouchy, but worthy of the $550 USD Klipsch has been championing premium audio products for 7 decades. Although the price is kind of steep, it does have some qualities no other product in its price range can match. While the double flange sleeves make the sound quality sound bad at certain instances, the Klipsch-branded oval ear tips more than makes up for such. You just need a very good ear tip and a very good ear seal to fully enjoy these cans. If there is an earbud that's worthy of your wallet-ouchy worry, then it's these cans, because even though they're not wireless, they're worthy ear cans.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Quality Sound These are a great pair of ear buds. I previously had a pair of Klipsch X10i's. I really liked those pair of headphones. Very clear and precise. I would have kept them, however, I stepped on the cord and broke them. I loved them so much that I searched again in the Klipsch brand for another pair. The X20i's are everything as advertised. One thing. The sound is a flat range. So if you want to enjoy the full sound quality, you should purchased an equalizer. I purchased an equalizer for my Ipod and the earbuds did not disappoint. After that, I had no complaints. Every level, highs, mids and lows are absolutely the best. I use the smaller size earbuds for great isolating, fit and comfort. To get the most out of these, I suggest you use an equalizer to fully utilize the drivers. I would recommend these earbuds. However, get the EQ.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Headphones! While not cheap, these are fantastic headphones. Unlike some that I've had in the past, there is little to no plastic in the construction of them, so I'm hoping they will last for some time. Sound quality is great, and the tips that it comes with are great (although I still switched mine for some Complys). I would highly recommend these.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Earbuds I owned a pair of the Klipsch X10i earbuds but I stepped on the cord and broke them. I was so pleased with the first pair of Klipsch earbuds I decided to purchase another pair. After reading the reviews and seeing that these were the flagship earbuds from the company, I decided to give them a try. I was a little taken by the price however, the reviews seem too good to pass up. I use these earbuds on an ipod 5th generation. At first I was a little disappointed. You see the earbuds give you a flat sound. So the music has to be recorded correctly. I decided to purchase an equalizer for my iPod and that is when the sound took me into another class. The EQ really enhanced the Highs, Mids and Lows. The bass really kicked in and the supper tweeter captured the sound that I was missing. These headphones surpassed my expectations. However, I recommend that you purchase an EQ to get the full sound that these little guys have to offer. I highly recommend these earbuds. They can compete with the high end earbuds for sure.
