We’ve appreciated Klipsch’s comfortable in-ear headphones in the past, and we’re happy to see the company is sticking with its comfy design for the new Reference series. Klipsch’s Patented oval ear tips aim to avoid stressing the pressure points along the inside ridge of the ear, as some circular-shaped ear tips allegedly do. The proprietary technology allows the earbuds to fit in a nice contour along the inner surfaces of the ear, which also effectively seals off the ear from outside noise. And because both the R6 and R6i come with four different sizes of the oval ear tips, users should be able to find just the right size for superior noise-isolation and, as a result, un-compromised bass.
Both pairs are available in black and white and come with protective carrying cases. The R6i comes with a clothing clip to supplement its in-line remote and mic.
