Mine are only 2-1/2 months old and the other day they just stopped working. I checked my phone and the audio was still playing. Thought maybe I lost the BT connection so I shut the neckband off. Now I can't get it to come back on. I tried to charge them and all I get is the red LED for 1 - 2 seconds indicating a full charge. When I press and hold the power button, nothing happens. I contacted Klipsch and they told me they do not honor the warranty through Massdrop. I am totally disappointed to say the least. Looks like I got the short end of the stick. Never again!
Mine stopped charging after 2 months. They went back to klipsch 2 weeks ago and I am currently waiting to see how it pans out. I think these are refurbished hence the low price tag

I filed a claim and got a replacement in about a month and showed them my MD receipt? I wonder what happened maybe they had too many issues with MD units
Yankchef
Not sure, I did the same sent them a copy of the receipt via the website and today I sent them a screenshot of the MD webpage that showed they are supposed to come with a 1 yr. Klipsch warranty. Klipsch said that MD is not an authorized dealer and therefore they could not honor the warranty.
Amazon.com $56.14 ships tomorrow!
I don't know why this is a good drop?

Here is the link:

I would have the same opinion, usually. But in this case, the answer is authenticity and warranty. When I looked a while ago, they were being sold by third parties, not by Amazon itself. Counterfeiting of Klipsch products is relatively common, and even if you do get the real thing, if they are not an authorized dealer there is no warranty.
These look almost like the Rolls-Royce of Bluetooth headsets… Does anyone have anything to say on whether these are any rugged? I'm a landscaper by day but I've been on the lookout for some good Bluetooth earbuds like these since the disappointment of the BlueAnt Pumps.

They're very nice quality, but I wouldn't call them rugged. The weakest part is the cables running from your collarbones to your ears. If your work doesn't involve you getting hit in that area (with brush or string-trimmers or whatnot), I'd think they'd hold up pretty well. But I could see one snag being disastrous. The neckpiece seems solid, some people have complained about the rubber pads peeling up. I can't imagine sweat helping with that. I'm very happy with mine, but I'm a desk jockey.
I was able to pick these up for a bit less a couple of months ago, and I will say that I've been pretty impressed with them. I've really had a hard time finding wireless IEMs I like, for a variety of reasons. I've never had a neckband style IEM before, so I took a flyer when I saw them on the cheap - and it paid off.

The sound quality is good, with a bass-oriented tuning - definitely not neutral - but it's quality bass, not sloppy or boomy. The comfort of the neckband is way better than I imagined. It's extremely light and easy to forget it's on. Klipsch ovals are my favorite silicon tips (obviously a personal fit thing), but if they work for you they're great as far as seal and isolation.

I think these are a no brainer for wireless IEMs at $60 with a legitimate 18 hour battery life.

A couple other comments and general responses to the thread, since I've been using these quite a bit recently.

1. I'm usually in the "No deal, you can buy these for the same price on Amazon" camp. But I took a quick look and I think there's actually a legitimate reason to buy them here. It looks like the sellers on Amazon are third parties - I didn't see them being sold by Amazon itself. It's easy to get burned buying from third parties like that. Most are legit, but some are selling counterfeits. I would also suspect that they are not authorized dealers, so no warranty if there's a problem.

2. I wouldn't recommend them for exercise. The complaints about failing due to sweat are pretty consistent in reviews and, while they are stable walking around and doing light stuff, I can't imagine wearing these for a serious gym session. Honestly, they're too nice for serious workout anyway - they just scream "poser"

3. There isn't a way to lock the buds in place like with the LG tone. While I wish there was, I haven't had any issues with tangling (and I hate it when my schwartz gets twisted!). I often walk around and do stuff with them dangling - I have a family, so the surest way to get them to talk to me is to put a pair of headphones on. (As near as I can tell nothing bothers women and children more than a man relaxing and enjoying his music).

4. In general, buying last generation Klipsch's as they end their marketing cycle has been a winning strategy for me. I've picked up the X11, R6i, and these, and all three are in the quality to value hall of fame at their stock clearing prices like this.
Wondering if there is a spot/place to mount the earbuds when not using (for transport), or do they just dangle and tangle?

Thanks!

now i just feel like an idiot for not reading this ;)
Also, I don't get how this is even a Massdrop at all when it's now on Amazon for 4 cents cheaper?
This is not the same as the older R6 bluetooth model as on Amazon; although the comments are correct, this is now also available on Amazon for the same price. This looks like a better design, because the heavier piece is on the neck brace now instead of behind the ear. Also, the regular R6 is the most comfortable in-ear that I have ever tried!
arteddie
It is the exact same one on Amazon, just search correctly “klipsch r6 neckband”. They offer both behind the ear and neckband. Since I can add 3 or 4 year Squaretrade protectionon Amazon, that seems a good/better option as so many headphones crap out in over a year.
1 cent more expensive than on Amazon - and longer shipping ETA. What's the benefit of buying it here instead?
myrloc
Yeah 1 cent more expensive. :)

Came here to post exactly this. No idea what makes this a good drop.
NOT for the gym.
Watchfreak
so is it not good for running either?
