These are by far some of the worst headphones I have had...Mono sound, absolutely no bass, as I have a pair that currently own, I bought for 5 bucks that kill these.
I kept hearing good things and figured that maybe something was wrong on my end...NOPE = extremely disappointing...



You might try breaking them in. Google breaking in headphones. If it's still only giving you mono sound, contact Klipsch for assistance.

late to the game, but I did buy a pair and agree that things bumping the cable do transfer a lot of sound, like most earbuds. just playing around, if I loop the cable over my ear it actually dampens the vibrations to almost imperceptible. check it out. not the most elegant solution...

Mine never showed, instead got a refund for the two pair that I purchased, no explanation. What gives? Anyone know what that's about?

Ditto. I threw them away.

Anyone remember those single earpieces that came with transistor radios back in the 60's? These had both a shoddier construction and poorer sound quality than those things.

At the risk of sounding melodramatic, I have never been more dis-satisfied with *any* product I have ever purchased.

My assumption is that somewhere along the line, someone at Woot! started feeling guilty for making money on these abominations. Consider yourself lucky.

i'm not sure. you should have received an email about that, if it was something done on our end.
you may want to contact Support@Woot.com and ask them for details.

(check your SPAM/junkmail folder, too. sometimes our messages end up in there.)

Not sure if you should post that? This slightly-nsfw-flowchart will help.

Do not purchase these Klipsch earbuds! I bought a set of these Klipsch Earbuds as I own two sets of Klipsch Heresy speakers so I figured the sound would be good. Soon as I plugged them into in my iPod I immediately pulled them out and contacted Woot to return these. The sound is horrible from these earbuds!! I have a set of Sony mini headphones that came from my Walkman back in the 90's and they blow these Klipsch out of the water! I have never been so disappointed in the quality of sound from earbuds but these were the first. My JVC earbuds have far better sound than these Klipsch. Highly recommend not buying these as they suck....

Purchased two pair because of Klipsch's reputation. Both failed right out of their packages: 1st set suffers from poor grounding harmonic oscillating feedback i.e., when you move the cord you get feedback in both ear pieces; 2nd. one suffers from the grounding problem like the first but in addition, there's a short in one side of the ear piece.

Two outta two - FAIL !

I nearly tried to return mine because they fell out and also sounded pretty tinny the first time I tried them. Figured I got a bad set or something. Months later, I tried them again, but this time followed the instructions and routed the cables up over my ears instead of just hanging down like usual. 100% difference in fit and sound. They are now my favorite in-ears headphones.
