This is the Custom-2, the midrange model in a three-strong range of custom-fit earphones from Klipsch.
Ranging in price from £69 up to £149 a pair, the new models come complete with five sets of Contour Ear Gels, designed to ensure a perfect fit whatever the size of your ears.
The range kicks off with the £69-a-pair Custom-1, which comes in a black soft-feel paint finish, and is supplied complete with a carrying case, ear gels and a cleaning tool.
Next step up is the £99-a-pair Custom-2 (above), which uses improved drive units and is identified by silver detailing, It also comes complete with a case also able to hold an 80GB iPod (left), and an airline adaptor.
The same case is supplied with the range-topping Custom-3 (left), which sells for £149 and comes with copper-coloured detailing.
This model uses a twin-driver design, with separate woofers and tweeters, along with an electroacoustic crossover system designed to deliver "a studio reference acoustic experience". A 6.3mm adaptor is also supplied with this model.
Like all the new Custom earphones, it comes with small, medium and large single-flange ear gels, and medium and large double-flange options. Users registering their purchase online will also receive a free pair of replacement gels in a choice of sizes.
All three models also come with flexible adjustable ear wires, designed to hold them in place while ensuring a comfortable fit. There's also a generous 1.2m cable, wrapped in cloth with a PVC Wireguard jacket to prevent fraying.
The Klipsch Custom earphones are available from Amazon and other retailers, and also double as a natty tie-clip. Apparently.
