Haven't tried these, but did demo some Klipsch earphones from higher up in the lineup. Long story short I did not care for them, they had a pretty unbalanced sound (very heavy from the mid-bass on down), more of a \ shaped response than V. I guess this was meant to produce impressive bass but to me it sounded like the music was locked inside a car with me on the outside.
So did we get the warranty on these or not? Seems to be some conflicting information

My R6i's are having some connections problems and I'm thinking about getting a replacement for them. Does anyone have any comparisons between the X11i vs the R6 BT Neckband units -- not the obvious differences (looks, neckband, wires/BT), but how they fit into the ear; sound quality; passive noise isolation? The R6 BT is cheaper...

I have both the X11 and the R6 neckband (and the R6i for that matter). They all use essentially the same tips, so fit and isolation are the same (just different colors of the usual Klipsch ovals - great tips for me, personally). The X11 is a better overall sound quality in my opinion - more clarity, more neutral, but solid across the whole spectrum. The R6 Neckband shares a very similar, bass-oriented tuning to your R6is - still very good, just more bass-heavy.

Thanks very much for a very useful reply!
I do love the fit and isolation on the R6i, and the sound quality is fine enough (didn’t honestry notice bass push). Down to BT or wired, I guess.
Who is the vendor, please?

MD never answered — who is the vendor, please?
Reading on amazon a few counterfeits out there. Is the dealer reputable/trustworthy? I trust Massdrop to do their diligence, but ya know. I like doing my own research.
The big problem is it dont have klipsch warranty

Newegg has them for 70 dollars and you won’t have to wait for several weeks to get your product, unless you wanna save the 5 bucks then just get them from newegg
Sigh, still no shipping to Canada
Any chance for international shipping next time?
Is shipping to Canada really difficult?
Anyone has an idea how it fares vs sennheiser momentum in ear?
These in-ear headphones are my favorite by far for airplane travel... comfortable for long flights (don't laugh at the "oval earpieces", they really are better than most), great sound (more detailed and spatial than my Bose QC 35s). The Klipsch top of the line in-ears have had variations of this design for a few years now; I discovered them by accident, but now every time I see a deal, I snap up another pair... the first few pairs haven't gone bad, but just in case... ;)

We can be a finicky bunch, thats for sure! I know people who think JBL is the only speaker to own, I own them, and Klipsch, and a half dozen other brands because I enjoy something specific about each individual set. Full Disclosure, I own set of Klipsch Belle that stay in my den, this does taint me and make me partial to Klipsch...... Still, Specs are specs and these things are more deserving than "Tech". Same concept would apply it they were generic and had these specs and I had heard and verified them. I wrote a note a while back about the wireless version with the APX Bluetooth feature that almost nothing else in Audiophile offers but all the Audiophile bluetooth players use it..... One last note and thanks for reading this far down before I finish, the older I get and the less I her the highs I once heard the more I appreciate headphone manufactures with a good CLEAN low frequency which these give in spades. Not a boomy or extra bass for the sake of people like bass but the ability to reproduce bass clean in an IEM. These do a real nice job. Doggone it I am going to work for Klipsch.

The oval ear tips are the most comfortable bud tips I've ever had. I've moved on to complete wireless, so I don't use these as much anymore, but they are so comfy.
if you want a better headset for $30 check this out https://www.bestbuy.com/site/sony-earbud-headphones-black/4909005.p?skuId=4909005
i got one from an airport kiosk of all places and they're really good for the price, especially the base

I'm not much of an audiophile using cheap headsets for the longest time, being an adult and desperate for a pair of headphones, i saw these on sale and brought em and they are really great, i would've thought this is something out of a $100+ headset, though the bass is the selling point it is still very much a very good pair of headsets, especially for the price
General_Winter
Agreed on all fronts
For once there was a true bargain !!! Hi from France, not for us
on a positive note these are REALLY good for folks that have narrow ear canals.
Plenty of places selling for ~$60 including shipping. hard pass on this drop.

Thanks @muphasta, saw them for 69dollars. That's a huge drop! Any idea why?
KrisBali
It is probably an old model now being replaced by a newer model
Buydig sell it for $59.99 BRAND NEW
Third party venders have this cheaper.....
chaostrain
As do authorized retailers that actually provide warranty.
this current drop doesn't represent much a savings over 3rd party vendors at on-line stores - as of this writing
Just got them yesterday. Literally 2 days after the drop ended (!!) Gotta love free overnight shipping :)
Let me tell you, these puppies are positively SICK. First of all, they're easily the most comfortable in-ears I've ever had, and I had (and still have) too many XD Those patented tips are the real deal, it seems. Also, the buds are tiny and weigh next to nothing. Considering all that, how the hell they manage to produce such sound is a total mystery to me. Super crisp & clear, but at the same time sooo lush and juicy, with enough rumble to run shivers down my back. And that's just out of the box (I have no idea if they'll get even better after some burn-in).
So yeah, they were good enough for me to come back to this thread just to leave this comment (right after I unpacked them, plugged them in, and then just sat there listening for two hours straight, smiling ear to ear like an idiot :) I can see why Klipsch used to charge $350 for them. $79 price for those is the definition of steal.
I bought these a few weeks ago. Just know that they are very delicate. You need to take some care of them. Their sound quality alone is worth about 120 dollars I would say. Comfort and size aside this is a good deal. But you can find these for like 100 dollars on amazon pretty much perpetually so if you care about easy returns then this may not be the best option.

Oh good, no shipping outside the US again...
I'm not going to take chances on used or potential fakes, nor am I going to pay extortionate regional pricing, not that they appear to be officially available anymore. So I guess it's a case of screw you Klipsch, on the shit list you stay.
Isn't "in-head earphones" more accurate?
With the 1more triple drivers on massdrop now for the same price and iems a dime a dozen it is so hard to tell which to go with. Do I trust in the fact that I know the Klipsch iems (have the s4) are super comfy and the fact that they were originally a crazy $350 retail and now like $140 on amazon that they should have a cleaner more detailed sound than the triples which everyone raves about how good they are for under $100.. decisions decisions (btw I know iem mark up is INSANE) which is why without many reviews of these x11i on youtube it’s hard to tell since I like a lot of different views because audio is so subjective

Which you got finally?
I've owned the X11(no i) version of these headphones for a few months now (they don't have the remote). I'm a big fan of Klipsch speakers, but not necessarily a fan of their headphones. In fact, the Image S4 was the first IEM I ever tried outside ones packaged with a phone (because I like Klipsch and was foolish enough at the time to listen to Amazon reviewers raving about their sound). I almost gave up on buying headphones, because they didn't sound much better than the freebies. I also tried a pair of their on ears a while back and didn't like them much (don't remember which model, but I do remember they were really ugly). So I don't generally think too highly of Klipsch headphones. I moved on and found other gear I liked much better.
Fast forward a couple years to when I saw these on a fantastic flash deal on Newegg. I took the plunge to see if their higher end stuff was any better. I was surprised how good these turned out to be, and they are one of the three IEMs I use regularly (1More Triples and MD PX are the others). The sound on these is excellent, and I'm amazed at the engineering that can pack it into such a small design - which is really nice looking as well. Where these really shine is on the comfort to performance ratio. They are very small and light. I have to consciously try to feel them. The oval tips fit my ear better than any other tips I've tried, and have great isolation (although tips, like sound, are very much a personal preference). These are my out and about IEMs and serve that role well. No need whatsoever for an amp.
As other have noted, though, Klipsch IEMs are notorious for being easy to break. The S4s I mentioned above died the first time my teenage son used them. I keep mine in their case and baby them, because there is a a lot of evidence of their fragility. I noticed that these have a 2 year warranty from Klipsch listed, which was the older Klipsch standard. That's better than the 1 year warranty currently posted on their site and included on the warranty card with mine. I'm skeptical - I'd screenshot that if I were buying these :)

If you treat your stuff well, I think they are a great deal at this price.
These are currently 150 dollars in Amazon and have 3.8 stars. In the US of course. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00EA90QGA/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_EBA1zbVW3ZDKD
Here are some reviews for convenience:
Soundguys 9/10 https://www.soundguys.com/klipsch-x11i-ear-headphones-review-510/
What HiFi 5 stars https://www.whathifi.com/klipsch/x11i/review
Gear patrol https://gearpatrol.com/2014/04/09/review-klipsch-x11i-in-ear-headphones/
Ok so if these have such good reviews from reviewers (except for gear patrol) why are they so low in Amazon? From what I've read construction is a problem, specifically the connector. It was switched from L connector to straight connector from X10 to X11 models. Some other complaints come from the steep price from the original release date. I believe it was 350 dollars and for that price other earbuds beat it. For 80 dollars though these are a steal.
TL:DR earbuds sound great and are a value at this price, but be careful with the connector and the Constitution. They are very light.

Klipsch always gets low review on amazon even when it doesn't make sense. I have no idea why. I have tried a few of their in ears and frankly my experience has been great. You just can't rough them up too bad but other wise they are good.

As of July 20th (time of this drop July 20, 2018) amazon price for this item is $79 massdrop asking $67.
