A New Standard in Sound Quality
It’s time to rethink everything you thought you knew about earbuds. The folks at Klipsch have packed more than 60 years of groundbreaking audio experience into the Klipsch X20i Reference In-Ear Headphones, the company’s new flagship model. With its comfortable fit, durable construction and high-resolution sound quality, these in-ear headphones don’t just raise the bar; they place it out of reach. If you are looking for earbuds that capture the dramatic highs and lows of each note of music, from the subtle breaths your favorite singer takes between verses to the sound of a mallet hitting a bass drum, it’s time to check out the Klipsch X20i Reference In-Ear Headphones.
High-Res Music in Your Pocket
You might not be able to carry your home stereo system around with you, but you can carry the X20i Reference In-Ear Headphones anywhere yougo. Far beyond what anyone thought possible from a tiny earbud, the X20i delivers the lifelike sound quality we have come to expect from Klipsch. 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. But, you don’t need to be an audiophile to hear the difference. These in-ear headphones deliver crisp, undistorted highs, strong mids, and clear, punchy bass.
First Class Comfort
Not only is the X20i the best in-ear headphone you’ve ever heard, it’s the most comfortable. Klipsch designed a new super slim ear tip to fit the shape of the listener’s ear canal, eliminating ambient noise and making these buds comfortable, even for people who never enjoyed the feel of an inner-ear monitor. Since all ears are unique, Klipsch includes six sizes, from small to large, to choose from. These headphones are so comfortable you won’t ever want to take them off.
Apple and Android CompatibleTime to throw away those uncomfortable plastic buds. The X20i gives you Klipsch quality audio on your phone or portable media player. It features an advanced three-button in-line remote that allows you control your device without having to pull it out of your pocket. You can even use the built-in microphone to talk to Siri and answer your phone.

Customer Reviews for Klipsch X20i Reference In-Ear Headphones
However, after some break-in the X20i opened all it's beauty and power to my ears. The precision of the sound, the perfectly detailed sounds at every single music genre you put these to is just insane.
I love the highs - they are very musical and strong. The mids are a lot more precise than X10i (who could have thought it's possible at all?) and the lows are strong and fast. The LF response with a dedicated low driver COULD be better(or stronger), but yet there are armature so you can live with that. Especially considering the fact that they DO give that punch with powerful electronic music.
The downside is they are heavier than X10i. This could be an issue wearing the for long time, but I did not yet find any discomfort using those. Also, while they are good with a phone, insanely good with an iPod Classic - adding an amp is uhm, USELESS. I tried the new Hi-Res Audio-Technica headphone amplifier and it did not change a thing. Hope this is because they are sensitive enough to play descentyl with anything.
Hey, Klipsch, GIVE US REPLACEMENT CABLES - 6.3mm, XLRs cables with no mic, coiled cables for PC use etc. Maybe a wireless module with Bluetooth? The removable cable tech could upgrade the X20i in so much ways!
I love the design of the new cables as well. They are slightly thicker than the x10s. The see through casing is nice. What I do not enjoy however is the Apple mic / control. I don't use Apple products, and this control is in a less convenient location for trying to ignore than the x10i. I feel like I'll eventually break it trying to wrap up the headphones to put into their leather pouch. Since the x20i has replaceable cables, and I seem unable to find anywhere to sell affordable replacement cables with these special connectors, this would be an opportune time for Klipsch to sell their replacement cables. A version with no mic/control on it would be great, and a cable with an Android capable control on it would also be great. I'd probably buy both outright. But currently I am stuck with the Apple control I will never use.
This annoyance doesn't stop me from giving a perfect score still, Klipsch can eventually come around and sell alternate cables for this. They don't even seem to sell replacement ear tips for this yet. I would also like to try their 'super slim' ear tips in the large size. The super slim medium tips that are included are too small to provide a good seal. These headphones also don't come with a shirt clip to keep the heavier cable from bouncing around and tugging on one's ears, I borrowed the clip that came with my x10i. The eartip cleaning tool and airline adapter is also not included anywhere. But you do get a pretty wooden box in place for these missing items.
I compared these to my Westone W10 and you can really hear the difference, especially in the highs which is obviously because of the super tweeter.
