Update: my X6i finally shorted out and stopped working. The mic went first then one ear, despite keeping them carefully wound & protected in a round hardshell case and using them sparingly as backups (because the sound quality for music is truly awful).
Klipsch has been bought out by VOXX and I hear things are rapidly changing there for the worse there, which if these are a reflection of their direction I will have to agree.
Right ear bud no longer works. Only been 6 months of using it on the home computer only.

same. only been 3 months and klipsch wont honor their manufacturers warranty since massdrop is not an official reseller. i emailed massdrop a week ago and they have yet to reply.

Well shit. Fuck all that noise then. I was interested until I saw these two comments.
I really feel I need to weigh in on these headphones. The sound quality is poor. I have had SkullCandy headphones I have picked up at TJMaxx that sounded infinitely better. Also, the build quality just isnt there and I fear these will not last long. But that may not prove to be the case since in all likelihood they will get tossed into the nightstand drawer in favor of a brand with improved sound. I rarely bother with taking the time to write a negative review but these were just disapointing. I recommend moving on to something else.
Why not put this on audiophile category? Is this guaranteed genuine Klipsch?
$59.00 on Ebay from Buydig. Obviously they have a better deal. But why? Is it because there are only ~40 people that joined this drop? If more people were to join would the price go lower? Or if one or two people were to buy a lot of these ( say 100 ), would the price go lower as well?

The x11i which were for $80 and said they had an msrp of $350 when they released and they also were not in audiophile category either. Not many reviews on YouTube of them and had the same build quality issues. If I remember correctly a couple months ago they didn’t sell well either and think they should be priced $20 cheaper which is a shame because I have the Klipsch s4m which I’ve had for a few years for like $40 and sound decent for the price but are THE MOST COMFORTABLE in ear I’ve ever tried!! Klipsch does it right with comfort but comprise on build and price most out of the market with crazy $350 msrp when you could get amazing renown Iems for that or less
i for "iOS" or for "in ear" ?

iOS
Is it only for iOS ?

the volume controls on the cord will only work on iphone but the headphones will work on other devices
These get a lot of flack for maybe being delicate or something but I genuinely don't feel like these are that bad quality-wise. Their build quality has improved from the previous generation products to the point where I don't worry as much about durability anymore. Based on how the cable is built and connects to the earphones I certainly have tried to take care of these earbuds a bit more carefully than I do for some others. The sound quality is really quite good though very very respectable for this price and arguably better than the 1more triple drivers in almost every way. The fit of the earphones can be a bit finnicky but they give plenty of tip options.
Good headphones 🎧, had them for 49.99$ from buydig a while ago. 65$ for massdrop is a bit more compared to that deal.
can these be worn with the cable up (over the ear)?
Ofer
No not really. They can only be worn the one way.
So, will the controls work with Android? I've seen a lot of conflicting information online. Seems the button will work, but not the volume. Then somebody says it will. Seems on some Android phones it will. For the record I've got a Motorola. Can anybody clarify for me?
Calderon00
The middle mic button works on the 3 android devices I tried it with. So you can pause and play and skip tracks and answer phone calls but that's it. I can't imagine that this wouldn't be the same on a motorola phone.
I'm very wary of this purchase - as much as I love Klipsch, they do tend to break (I got a pair for both my sister & myself; only lasted a year or so). Their customer service was awful. After browsing Amazon reviews, hoards of people are complaining about the same things. Seems inevitable these will die within a short period of time, and they are awful about replacing

Haha same thing happened to me - it's as simple as unplugging it - except you can never plug it back in. Flimsiness with poor customer service makes for a disaster product
Haha I forgot about the wax thing. I consider that a mark of 'personalizing' my product
Stop with that for sale stuff. First it is an auction that STARTS at $75. Then there is a $7.50 shipping fee. So it's $82.50 and that's only where it starts. You are better off getting this at the 79.99 price as long as we get 8 more people to join.
vitop
It's only $65 after 2 more people join + Free Shipping + $0 Tax fee. $65 total when more join.
Has USPS updated tracking for anyone else? My last update was on April 9th with no further updates. I have contacted Massdrop, but they have not responded yet. Any advice?
Got mine. Tinny..shallow sounding. Compared them to a pair of open CCrane buds that I got free with a radio I bought my wife. Looks like I'll be listening to those.
Is there any international shipping for this round of IEMs?
Anyone knows when is the shipping date?
Eugenetjw
No response????
Eugenetjw
It shows as April 12th to me
Can you sleep on your sides with these on?

Eargasm finally makes sense!

I’ll second the no answer. I don’t care for the design on these. Got them for $59 at BuyDig in September. They are long and skinny and tend to ride more in you ear canal. So laying on them isn’t comfortable at all.
Sound is fair to good but they aren’t close to the One More Triple Driver(s) for my taste anyway. Good Luck!
First time using Massdrop to get 2 pairs of these with the expected ship date Feb 8 to Toronto, Canada and it still tells me with no current updates since Feb.10th that they are still in a sorting facility in New York. Is this common for International orders? Not feeling all that thrilled now that I'm waiting forever for these IEMs.

So after all this time it turns out my shipment was returned to sender and there were no more units to send me, so I get a refund. Minus the cost of shipping of course.
A+ experience! Would totally waste my time again!
TylerHealey
WOW, just wow! my last comment must be like salt on the wound now. i hope you get lucky next time.
WOW these suck balls. These sound worse than the $50 S4i-II's, and about the same as the A5i's I got for $30 on closeout. Zero bass. Drums sound like plastic spoons. Crystal clear but treble fatigue. I actually went back to using Plantronics Bluetooth PLT Edge Sport headphones these sound so bad.
Will try aftermarket from ear tips to see if a better seal helps.

I genuinely agree. The sound quality is poor. The sad thing is it will make me cautious from buying anything audio from MD. These are expensive (relatively speaking when compared to other ”deals”).
EDCjunkie
Yes. I have gotten three shitty pairs of earbuds from Massdrop now, and one great pair (for the $) which were HiFiMan. Also have gotten one junk knife, and some junk jewelry (1/4th items have been junk). Definitely worth being skeptical and cautious.
just got mine...fast shipping is a plus! Thank you!
Just logged in to double check the shipping date on these and the mail carrier walked in with them. The shipping is really getting better and better!
Just received mine here in LA. Pretty fast shipping IMO. Right out of the box, (and compared to my Dunu Titan 1's) , running off of a Micca Origen+ -
- They Sound slightly warm, but the sound stage is definitely wider. - The detail is definitely ever so slightly better. - Sub bass seems to be a little exaggerated? Maybe they need to settle down a bit. - High are smooth , and so are the mids. - The low is definitely "fun" , not too much, but not over the top either.
Definitely happy with these!
And shipping from NJ before the tentative 8 Feb ship date. definitely a plus!
Thanks again for joining this drop! We have submitted the group's order with the vendor and they are working hard to prepare it for shipment.

Would you buy these or the Koss for everyday use?
Bennnile
Not exactly relevant comment. I have R6, I use them everyday. Still going strong after two years. The wire makes sound if it brush against clothes so they are not suitable for running. The ear piece is super comfortable, I have this on for hours.
Buying this for daily use myself due to open plan office, comfort and local price is n Singapore being 230$
Should also be in Audiophile community?
IvanSpendalot
You can get some triple driver chi-fi iems for this price. Even if we disregard the Chinese gear, I don't think they stand up to the $100 gear from Shure and Ety, especially not in isolation.
Rashkh
These do not. Very clear but not very lively.
This black color piece is NOT STYLISH AT ALL LOL
Trying to understand... Do Kilipsch model numbers (5-to-6-to-7) indicate better and better. This model number is lower, but the X7i drop was substantially cheaper. Are the X6i's better than the X7i? TIA
Fearlessleader
Pretty sure the X7i was cheaper. Just look at the pictures, the earphones themselves looks cheap. The current Klipsch X series consists of X6i, X8 Hybrid, X12i, and X20i. So i believe the X5i and the X7i are in the past now, but within the current lineup, the bigger the number, the better and more costly.
es3502012
Manufacturers always make model numbers confusing.
So the X7i is older and not as good as the X6i. Ok. I do love the X7i. Very nice. But I'm likely to get a Trinity Audio unit next... maybe... that will cost me about the same as the newer X6i.
Thanks
These are brand new right ? Just wanted to make sure as I saw the refurbished IEMS in the audiophile community.
