Review of a font of Klipsch Reference ONE and Klipsch Image ONE
The American company Klipsch Audio Technologies was based in 1946 by Paul Uilbert Klipsh. The company is one of the oldest producers of high-quality speaker systems. From the small workshop located detached of the American provincial small town Hope, Klipsch grew in the influential player of the modern market. Company production always corresponded to the highest standards of the characteristic, and let it is not so known for the Russian consumer, it in any way does not reduce pluses of made equipment.
Following currents of a modern fashion, engineers and experts in marketing of Klipsch could not avoid love of music fans of the whole world to Apple in any way. The company lets out the whole line of the most different fonts developed specially for iPod, iPhone or even iPad. At present we will have a talk about the closed monitor Reference ONE earphones and their more economic analog of Image ONE.
The accessory is delivered in a pleasant black box from an opaque cardboard. Packing is deprived of superfluous details, looks seriously and strictly. It is visible to a meeting that the producer is guided by the men of taste far from bright paints and tinsel on which, for example, do an emphasis in Scullcandy. Such product is pleasant for holding and it is not a shame to present. The Oriyentirovannost of earphones on introduction with equipment of Apple dictates the samples meaning verified style and quality, to which Klipsch corresponds even in "clothes". Naturally, it not super and fashionable packing as in Sennheiser IE 7, still being for me one of standards of krasovy appearance, well and to cheap precisely in any way it is impossible to carry such product.
Without considering most гранитуры in a box you will find only a suitable gentleman’s set including a rigid cover, an adapter for the plane and on jack 6,3. The complete case is absolutely comfortable and perfectly will be suitable for transportation of earphones, protecting them from external influences and breakage. It is possible to throw safely it in a bag and completely to forget about the fragile thing which has been reliably hidden in a cover. Here only the size can appear important discrepancy for those who in everything looks for compactness.
The difference of boundaries of Reference ONE and Image ONE to me managed to be beheld only in design. The "senior" model looks more stylishly, is decorated with plastic inserts of bronze color, and the wire is protected by a transparent rubber winding. On cups of Reference ONE earphones the logo which is bearing a faint resemblance to Vertu flaunts only. In turn in Image ONE silvery inserts, an ordinary black wire are used, and on outer side instead of uncertain "tick" the company brand is put. The insert from the skin, framing outside of both models of earphones, again does analogy to phones and phones of a luxury-segment.
Convenience of carrying does not cause any complaints. The exposed fonts from Klipsch are one of the most comfortable of that I could use. Soft амбушюры from кожзама densely adjoin to ears, practically without passing external noise. Earphones very easy, and even after long carrying do not cause discomfort. The headboard is also softly trimmed by an imitation leather, creating only pleasant memoirs. I consider the sizes of cups more quite good — on the head earphones do not look frighteningly big, they are rather smart and will be perfectly combined both with a business suit, and with youth clothes. To designers from us editorial «respect and уважуха».
As already it was told above, Reference ONE and Image ONE distinguishes only appearance. In sounding of these 2 models I did not see distinction. The accent is made on low frequencies. Their level is overestimated, because of what handwriting rather booming. Detail is at applicable level, but quality is a little lost in the general gryaznovatost. The place vast, is perfectly felt volume. Some tools sound as though from far away. Best of all in this font to listen to a rock music winning from a saturated, juicy bass, but «concrete тяжеляк» can turn into "porridge". As a whole, it is level not the most expensive, but high-quality earphones. As you understand, the overpayment follows a series oriyentirovannost on introduction with Apple equipment.
iPhone perfectly pumps over earphones. At comfortable level of sounding there is still a decent stock of loudness. The control panel with a microphone works without complaints. It is executed from glossy dark plastic. Buttons rather big and pleasantly "click" under pressing of your fingers. Well and casual switchings of tracks it is not necessary to exclude. From the specialist of a font I also did not expect another.
On ebay the senior Reference ONE model is more expensive of Image ONE approxi
mately for $50. It is the adequate price for more interesting appearance and stylish design. In the Russian Federation a difference of boundaries "twins" actually in 2 times above. The choice remains for you. If Image ONE cost in 3 with superfluous thousands rubles seems in our realities adequate, here for 7 thousand which demand for Reference ONE, it is possible to get something else more interesting. For example, the "pop" Monster Beats which have become for many neestetstvuyushchy music fans a prototype of style and a sound.
