NEWS: Klipsch launches 'world's smallest, lightest' earphones

Klispch has introduced what it claims are the world's smallest and lightest full-range in-ear earphones.

Weighing just 10g and with an aluminium body, the new Image headphones use Contour Ear Gels to ensure an accurate fit inside the user's ear canals.

These boost comfort and noise isolation, and have a special design to prevent them getting stuck too firmly!

Five different-sized gels are used to fit all ear sizes, and flexible 'tails' are used at the points where the cable meets the earphones to provide strain relief and thus enhance reliability.

The Image headphones sell for £199, and come complete with a carrying case sized to accommodate an iPod Touch, 6.3mm and airline adapters, those five sets of gels and a gel cleaning tool.

Distributed by TNS Distribution, the Klipsch Image earphones are available through Amazon UK.

There, the whole story, and no sign of a 'Klipsch around the ear' joke...
