if you will agree with us, the personal audio market is choke full of overpriced plastic gears. i mean, you are paying like hundreds for a pair of tiny plastics and even though they may sound awesome but don’t you think you deserves more than just mere plastics? however, with the $199 Klipsch Image X7i In-Ear Headphones, ceramic is the material of choice instead of the usual cheap’o plastics. gosh, why didn’t anyone think of that before or was it because they (the corporates) is hell-bent in squeezing every drop of profit from their products and hence the choice of plastics? anyway, the idea of using ceramic totally blown us away. the X7i’s ceramic design is hand-polished and fired for over five days at 1,480 degrees celsius (2,700 degrees Fahrenheit) and the buds bear features such as the obvious beauty and durability that comes with ceramic, a three-button remote with integral directional microphone for music control and taking of calls (plus voice control on select Apple devices), full-range balanced armature drivers for deep bass, clear mids and crisp highs, patented oval ear tips, and a new flat, tangle-resistant cable. above all, you know you will be getting the audio reproduction that Klipsch has been known for. the Klipsch Image X7i In-Ear Headphones is available now in a choice of sleek black or white ceramic finish. we say ‘aye’ to white. ceramic plus white is perfecto! a few more (larger) views after the break.
