Design

Klipsch X7i is nicely packaged in a way to display the beautiful shinny hand polished ceramic in-ear headphones.

However, the packaging is so complicated – you can never pack it back – that I took 5 minutes to unbox it without using a knife. It comes with 2-year warranty, just in case.

The thick paper box at the bottom contains another 4 different-sized ear tips, a clothing clip, airplane adaptor (surprise!), a earphones pouch (sweet!), product information (piece of card), and safety information.

Klipsch X7i in-ear headphones ceramic design is sleek and elegance. It should be more durable because of the material used. I like the clicking sound when the headphones bump together.

Designed for iPhone, iPad, and iPod, X7i has a 3-button remote for music and voice controls. The protrusion buttons are easy to reach and press down.

The headphone cable is longer than ordinary headphones. It uses flat cable design that do not easily get tangled.

Performance

In-ear headphones is not my personal choice – I do not feel comfortable to have something stuck in my earholes.

However, I do not have problem with Klipsch X7i in-ear headphones. Thanks to its patented oval comfort fit ear tips. It is comfortable to wear for a long period of time.

There are a total of 5 ear tips in different sizes and shapes to suit your ears. Changing ear tips is as easy as pulling and plugging.

Klipsch X7i sound quality is GREAT! I tested it with different genre music: pop, hip-hop, R&B, rock… The mids and treble are crisp and clear. Voices is so real that it feels like the singer is singing beside you!

However, X7i has relatively weak bass, not to mention bass bomb. If you are a heavy-bass person then you may want to look for other headphones.

Apple iPod Shuffle, iPod Nano, iPod Touch (2010): Features, Buying Advice (Prices in Malaysia, too)

apple-ipod-family-2010.jpg

Apple announced all new iPod shuffle with buttons, iPod nano with multi-touch display, and iPod Touch with retina display and cameras for FaceTime. Read on for what’s new about the iPod family and the iPod price in Malaysia Apple Store.

New iPod Touch: Retina display, FaceTime, camera, HD video recording

Apple iPod touch with camera

Yes! Apple iPod touch now has 2 build-in camera, front-camera for FaceTime and back-camera for shooting HD video(720p) and (low quality) photos. Like the iPhone 4, new iPod touch has the Retina display and A4 chip (read: better performance).

The FaceTime on iPod touch allows you to make video calls to family and friends (with new iPod touch or iPhone 4) over WiFi network. It’s free. Like games? The new Game Center on iPod touch lets you add friends to your gaming network and challenge them.

Did I tell you that new iPod touch is even thinner than the previous model? The battery life is 40 hours music playback and 7 hours video.

If you are thinking, “Now iPod touch has camera, it is the iPhone 4 without only call function and GPS”. You are almost correct.

Sadly, the camera build-in iPod touch is meant for video shooting. The photo shooting resolution is ONLY 960×720 pixels. Why 960 pixel for photo height, and not HD video’s 1280 pixels? Well, I guess it is because the iPod touch screen resolution is 960x640 pixels.

In short, iPod touch does NOT have a great camera, forget about taking great photo with it.

Price: USD$229 (8GB), USD$299 (32GB) and USD$399 (64GB)

Malaysia price: RM829 (8GB), RM1079 (32GB) and RM1399 (64GB) (estimated ship: 4-5 weeks)

* No 16GB iPod touch model.
