Klipsch Custom 1 review

Klipsch's Custom-1's fail to live up to expectations in just about every way Tested at £79.00

Our Verdict

They might be Klipsch's, but they're not good Klipsch's


  • Good looks


  • Harsh sound, make for a tiring listen

Klipsch's £200 Image in-ears have become very popular around these parts, and we're fairly fond of the £150 Custom3s, too, so we had high hopes for these baby brothers.

Sadly, they're not up to the sonic sophistication of either their siblings or direct rivals.

The Custom 1s hurl the music into your ears, and the top end can easily become strident. Shure's SE110s are a better bet
