Klipsch X7i - Earphones

First of all I would like to thank MustardPR for sending me out the Klipsch X7i’s for review.
They can be found on AmazonUK for around £130 (price fluctuates) – the review is based on a £130 price tag.

I first glanced on the Klipsch S3M’s at the Digital Summers event in London. I was immediately intrigued by them, due to my good impressions of the S4’s that Klipsch has built a good reputation around, in the earphone world for low-priced, but very well performing earphones.

The S3M’s can be purchased from sellers such as AmazonUK and are priced at £40.
The S4’s, their bigger and older brothers can be found also on AmazonUK at £43 and their newer revision at £59. Although I have no idea what the difference between the S4’s revisions are. The S4’s mentioned in this review are based on the cheaper and older revision.
