Earphone Review: Sennheiser’s IE7 & Klipsch’s X10i

For this review, I’ve chosen as earphone examples two moderately priced but very hi–fi products from companies with very differing views of what’s “right.” In the German corner, we have Sennheiser electronic GmbH & Co. KG, a manufacturer of audio gear since 1946. In the American corner, we have Klipsch Group, a loudspeaker manufacturer also since 1946. Each firm is quintessentially true to their home country and their products reflect that background.
