Klipsch Gets Loud About Tiny Headphones
The speaker manufacturer wants to make a big statement with its small IMAGE product.
Each set of Image headphones comes with five different-sized ear gels: small, medium, and large single flange designs.

Clunky, chunky headphones are so 70s. While they may look cool with your bell-bottoms and platform shoes, they don’t do a whole lot for your workout routine. For such sweaty occasions, Klipsch has launched Image—a super-small set of in-ear headphones.

The company says they are the “smallest and lightest” headphones ever. They must have done something right, since the Consumer Electronics Association chose the product as an Innovations 2008 Design and Engineering honoree.

As someone that doesn’t groove on the in-ear headphones, I am a bit skeptical about the idea of spending $350 on this tiny set. Klipsch, however, says they have Contour Ear Gels technology, which is designed to fit snuggling inside any human ear canal. It’s also supposed to feel nice and cushy, which is a nice change to feeling like I am sticking a screw in there.

Each unit comes with five different-sized ear gels and an “aerodynamic-shaped black ‘tail’,” which is designed to reduce cable stress.

The Image is available now. Fill out your warranty online and you’ll score an extra set of Contour Ear Gels in any size.
