Just received an email from Klipsch. They are selling their entire lineup for half price, so it's $175 plus free shipping for the X10s, etc. U.S. buyers only, it says. Wonder if this is to drive sales or to clear out inventory for new models. Not sure, but here's the basic email I received ...

Hot Headphones, Half the Price

From now until 11/30/08, or while quantities last, we're selling our popular Image X10, Image X5 and Custom 3 headphones on klipsch.com for half off. Plus, ground shipping is FREE.

Use coupon code "Half Off" at checkout to receive offer.

Available to U.S. customers only.

Yeah, I thought I had a good deal at $191 from Amazon. Some folks are complaining about the stress relief rubber sheath splitting, or something like that. But mine are intact, though I use them very carefully. I do love their sound, though. Tempted to buy a second pair, but not sure.

I just ordered the X5's for $125. I was planning on getting the Sleeks but this deal is too good to pass up.

X10, X5, and Custom 3. Limited time only!

(Scott549--that headphone minisite is in the middle of being updated, which it hasn't been since the X5 came out)

Never tried the Custom 3s, but they supposedly offer the best sound in the Klipsch lineup, but they are over the ear style, and some folks have had fit problems. Never heard of anyone having fit problems with the X10s, as they are the most comfortable IEMs I have ever owned. In a landslide. And they sound pretty good to me. A steal at $175 in my view, as long as you aren't too tough on them. Some folks have had cable problems (mainly stress relief rubber splitting), but mine are still intact. Admittedly, I am a light user. And I have Sleek SA6s too, so I use them as well.

Edit:
My name is Tom, and I am a portable headphone addict. Just purchased a pair of the half-price Custom 3s, my first dual driver phones. If they are very good, I may have to sell off some gear. I am not an over the ear fan, but wanted to try them out.

Tempted to get the X10, but quality control problems make me hesitant.

I don't think they have a quality control problem as I have only seen 2 people complain about problems out of the many on head-fi who own the X10.

On a side note, these prices are awesome and I am seriously thinking about getting those Custom 3s but usually I have fit issues with IEMs and those look like a pain in the butt.

I'm using the X10 for 3 months now and I don't have the splitting problem others are reporting. If you use them carefuly and not remove them from your ears by pulling the wire, then you should be good.

This is a great deal, looks like I can finally pick up a X5 to try.
