HYBRID DESIGN WITH HOME THEATRE SOUND

The Klipsch Reference line is famous for producing room-rattling home theatre sound and we’re bringing that to the XR8i Hybrid in-ear headphones. These puppies feature a built-in subwoofer (yes, really) that promises to deliver glorious bass while still producing the clarity you expect from a Klipsch headphone.

DIE-CAST ZINC AND CO-MOLDED ELASTOMER HOUSING

XR8i’s minimal design combines sturdy die-cast zinc for the front housing, optimally weighted to stay put inside your ear canal. The high quality and durable rear housing is built from co-molded elastomer, a two-layer design with a rigid inner layer for support and a soft-touch pliable outer layer for comfort.

HIGHS AND LOWS

Klipsch’s custom, single full-range KG-723 balanced armature delivers cleaner, more natural sounding vocals and perfectly defined upper frequencies only achievable through balanced armature technology. The XR8i utilizes a 6.5mm dual magnet dynamic driver to reproduce low, sub-bass—unheard of in a headphone of this caliber. With a moving coil driver focused on reproducing only low frequencies, the XR8i creates the headroom necessary to drive highly-dynamic recordings with high energy and without distortion.

PATENTED OVAL EAR TIPS

Soft, flexible oval ear tips naturally fit the contours of the ear canal for comfortable, long-term wear and create a perfect acoustic seal for superior noise isolation

ADVANCED THREE-BUTTON REMOTE + MIC

Advanced three-button mic and remote provide seamless control of your iPhone, iPad, or iPod while listening to music, watching movies and answering phone calls. With the new Reference X Series, we created an even smaller, better performing microphone. Conversations will be clearer. This is a true hands-free microphone.

TANGLE-RESISTANT REFERENCE CABLING

The XR8i boasts Reference cabling, showing exposed copper through a smoked jacket. Its heavy gauge wire is not only more reliable but also more efficient than its predecessors. Oh and they’re tangle-resistant too.

ACCESSORIES

I also loved the powerful sound of the hybrid XR8i, with its subwoofer-worthy bass that the other three models could not match—especially at higher output levels. Mark Henninger | AVS Forum

Front Towards Gamer Logo

The mind blowing thing about these is I am hearing sounds I never heard before and my awareness and immersion is heightened. All of this at lower volume levels which makes my ear doctor happier. I’ve been using these earbuds for gaming, music and video conferencing. They outperform every other headset and earbud I own or have owned. These are truly the best sounding units I’ve ever heard.
