The Klipsch R6 In-Ear Bluetooth Earphones is Klipsch first ever Bluetooth earphones. It was launched in Singapore on 15th January 2016 and is retailing for S$299. At launch only one color is available which is matte Black.
It comes with a one-year warranty by Tat Chuan Acoustic. Tat Chuan Acoustic is located at The Adelphi (1 Coleman St #01-17 Singapore 179803) and is the official distributor for Klipsch and Sonos products in Singapore.
Similar to the Klipsch Reference R6i, it has a dual-magnet moving coil drivers which covers a wide frequency range with dynamic detail and delivers realistic sound.
It uses Bluetooth 4.0 and aptX for the high-definition Bluetooth streaming technology.
Inside the packaging contains the Klipsch R6 In-Ear Bluetooth Earphones, travel pouch, micro-USB cable and four different sized ear tips.
Klipsch always has the habit of adding the letter “i” or “m” behind it’s model number. R6 means it doesn’t come with a remote. R6i means it has a remote and is compatible with iOS devices. R6m means it has a remote and is compatible with Android/Windows Phone/BlackBerry devices.
For the Klipsch R6 In-Ear Bluetooth Earphones, the model number doesn’t have an “i” or an “m” at the back because it uses Bluetooth and will work with any mobile devices. Maybe they should end it with “b” for Bluetooth or “w” for wireless to avoid confusion with the normal R6 In-Ear Earphones.
The Klipsch R6 In-Ear Bluetooth Earphones comes with the standard three three-button remote, which offers full control of music and phone calls to practically any iOS, Android or Windows Phone devices.
The remote has a built-in cVc microphone which automatically enhances voice clarity and actively reduces environmental noise.
The Klipsch R6 In-Ear Bluetooth Earphones weighs 22g. Despite it being a few grams heavier than the Jabra Sport Coach Wireless Earbuds, you can’t really feel the weight of the earphone on your ears because of the behind-the-ear design.
Bulk of the weight of the earphones are being hook on your ears and the earphones themselves are being dangled.
I am not really a fan of behind-the-ear design because it is not secure enough and tends to easily fall off from your ears. If you are running to chase a bus, your earphones will fall off from your ears because the earphones are just being hook on your ears.
If you are primarily using it for stationary work like working at a desk or in-transit in the trains or buses, you are fine.
A single charge can give you up to eight hours of battery life. It takes less than an hour to fully charge the earphone.
I like my earphones to have a good and strong bass without cracking at higher volume and that is why Klipsch is my favourite brand of earphones.
Their earphones produce strong bass without cracking at high volume and the Klipsch R6 In-Ear Bluetooth Earphones remains true to the cause.
