Product Details

Klipsch Reference X20i Black In-Ear Headphones - X20I BLK

X20i is the most revealing in-ear headphone Klipsch has ever made. High frequencies are reproduced with unheard-of accuracy and bass is clear, full and warm. Breaking all barriers, X20i sets a new standard in headphone acoustics. 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. This results in a palpable sound character and makes X20i the broadest bandwidth in-ear headphone available from Klipsch.

Features:

  • Hear The Air
    X20i is the most revealing in-ear headphone Klipsch has ever made. High frequencies are reproduced with unheard-of accuracy and bass is clear, full, and warm. Breaking the barriers of the capabilities in the class, X20i sets a new standard in headphone acoustics. 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. This results in a palpable sound character and makes X20i the broadest bandwidth in-ear headphone available from Klipsch.
  • High Resolution Super Tweeter
    Putting X20i into a class of its own, the KG-125B super tweeter creates a truly transparent sound. With high-frequency performance created to take advantage of superb lossless recordings, this headphone delivers hi-hats and cymbals with lifelike realism.
  • Surgical-Grade Stainless Steel
    Injection-molded surgical-grade stainless steel is the primary material used in the X20i chassis. Complemented by a reverse hood scoop, X20i is one of the smallest and most durable two-way headphones on the market.
  • Super-Slim Ear Tips
    With the introduction of X20i comes the most comfortable ear tip we have ever designed. Pre-installed on the product, we have redesigned our most popular ear tip into a super slim form factor. After extensive research, our surveys lead to the conclusion that ear canals are even narrower than we had ever expected. The super slim ear tip addresses that by using an even narrower and more tapered design, enabling people who have never found in-ear monitors to be comfortable to wear them without fatigue. However, all ears are unique, so included with the product are five additional sizes to choose from.
  • Interchangeable Cables
    Complementing the groundbreaking design and acoustics of X20i is the ability to swap cables. Screw-type coaxial SSMCX connectors for both left and right sides allow for swapping cables or using custom balanced cables. Approximately 35% smaller than industry-standard MMCX connectors, X20i has all the advantages of interchangeable cables without any of the bulk.
  • Advanced Three-Button Mic And Remote
    Have seamless control of your iPhone, iPad, or iPod while listening to music, watching movies and answering phone calls.

    Comments about Klipsch Reference X20i Black In-Ear Headphones:

    I was pretty nervous spending this much money for ear buds. I tried a number of high-end headphones before settling on these. I chose these for one simple reason - they provided the best sound (ear buds or over the ear) I've ever heard. They do not color the music in any way, nor do they use electronic gimmicks to fill in gaps they way some other units do. They are so well made, so well balanced, and so well engineered as to not need any "help" producing music that is as close to real as I've ever heard. Well done, Klipsch! I love these headphones!!!!

        Comments about Klipsch Reference X20i Black In-Ear Headphones:

        I have had several high end in-ear and these are the best in class. The only thing with this type of in-ear products are the better fit, the more noise is picked up when you walk and the cords dangle and hit your clothes. you have to find a good way of fixate the cords.
        The quality of everything is the top, which is to be expected from the price tag. If you want to have a no compromise product this is it!

          It would be really nice to not have to spend $$$$$ on headphones and continue to see only the ridiculous iCommunity supported. There are more Android phones in the world, check the stats and it seems that if I can get this in cheaper models, I should be able to get this in a premium set of buds. This is simply ridiculous

              Comments about Klipsch Reference X20i Black In-Ear Headphones:

              I just purchased the X20i today. I was skeptical, having agonized over the decision to spend the extra money for these. Wish I had purchased them earlier! The first album (John Coltrane's A Love Supreme) sold me on the quality of the audio. I heard things in the recording (good things!) that I never hear from my over-the-ear headphones and reference speakers. I then moved to an album devoted to solo classical guitar by Barrios. Having played classical guitar for years, I can now hear things in the recordings that I would only previously hear in live performances. The quality of the audio is beyond anything I anticipated from in-ear headphones. I almost purchased custom-molded in-ear headphones for over twice the cost, but I am very happy with these. No hiss or buzz, these headphones are almost as sound-isolating as a pair of noise-cancelling (over the ear) headphones I own, but are much more transportable and wearable. I found that I can play music at a much lower sound level than ever, while still hearing more detail and quality than I ever experienced in recordings before. I haven't put these to the test with reference sounds and test equipment, but I absolutely can attest to the quality of the audio. It will take me a couple of months, but now I have to listen to my entire classical guitar collection again! If you are on the fence, jump off and buy these. I was not disappointed.

              Comments about Klipsch Reference X20i Black In-Ear Headphones:

              Upgraded to X20i from my old X10i. The move was complicated. At first I didn't even get the difference.

              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!

                  Klipsch hit the ball out of the park with this product! Excellent audiophile full range sound, ear buds that are so comfortable and lightweight, cables that are noise free. I thought their X11i ear buds were good but the cable noise was a deal breaker plus the x20i's sound is much better. The only other pair of ear buds I enjoyed for their sound quality were the Sony XBA-Z5 but their sport style ear holder was not comfortable.

                    Comments about Klipsch Reference X20i Black In-Ear Headphones:

                    Comparing these to the Klipsch x10s which i've been using since 2009, the fit is very similar. The provided eartips work well at creating a good seal. They are very small and can still fit right in your ear canal if you want. The sound signature is that of the x10s, but the treble has come out to play. Rich bass with beautifully detailed highs, and very smooth flat response all around. They sound perfect. They are a great upgrade from the tried and true x10s.

                    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.
