Image X10i

Image X10i ($350)

In recent years, Klipsch has made a push to produce high-end earbuds, and its new Image X10i models are the cream of the crop. Each earpiece is pencil-thin and featherlight (an astounding ? ounce for the pair), though the Klipsch engineers achieve these industry-leading feats without sacrificing audio-reproduction quality. The brand’s full-range KG 926 armature drive component, which powers these buds, is among the most powerful drivers on the market for its size. These models include a mini-microphone and three-button remote incorporated into the cable design for pairing with most Apple iPhones, iPods, and iPads. (317.860.8100, www.klipsch.com)
