I had Sennheiser 555 and modded them to more like the 595. After short term use with Image one, I know I prefer a closed headphone over an open one(ala sennheiser).
The Klipsch definitely have more bass than the 555 and with the wrong song can be too much but I think these sound great so far after couple hours of use.
I am 48 and listen to the 1980/90's music(non-metal non-bass heavy music-- more pop), Symphony and on sirius the Blend and Pulse.
They seem very comfortable, not too tight and my ears are not large so that I can make them on-ear or over the ear. The leather is slight warm but not a big deal. I can't believe how good these sound for $70.
Mine unfortunately came with a bad kink/crimp in the right cord near where they attached to the headphone. I think I will need to exchange it as I am worried the underlying wire is damaged??. I am not 100% as the sound is so good but with long-term use in mind I dont want the defect to become an issue

I purchased the Reference One's a couple weeks ago @ $62 as well. Love them. Not quite as comfy as my old Sennheiser 555's but I think the sound is more musical overall.
Anyways I read about an app named Audessey that supposedly used the digital signature of certain headphones and makes them sound the way they should. I got it and agree that it makes them sound the best out of any of the EQ settings I tried on my iPhone 5. I mentioned the app in the other thread too in case it helps - especially if you don't like being bass heavy. The app helps them sound more balanced IMO.
Just a FYI
*edit: I don't usually post what amounts to free advertisement for apps. And I don't work for the company lol. I really like how it paired with THESE headphones. I have no idea how it might work with others...

|Areed67||These are most certainly NOT open headphones - these are closed and extremely isolating.|

|Shad0wguy||I've had these headphones for over a year. Paid $130 for them. Still love them. The best sounding headphones I've ever had.|

Image one has more bass than reference one, (anyone that isn't a bass-head would say too much, for a bass-head it would be finally enough...seriously there is a TON of bass). I bought the reference ones a while back for 62 bucks. These headphones in particular seem to be sensitive to what is driving them, and not in a way you would expect. They sound the best (BY FAR) being driven by portable devices/with the volume down on computer. They will be plenty loud, they just have low resistance so with high input volume the quality goes to shit (and for some reason doesn't seem to get much louder).
Even though I own the reference ones and not image one they are quite similar (in resistance especially) so I expect my comments apply to the image one.
These headphones are open, very portable (on account of them being on-ear) but have a VERY heavy bass emphasis. If you're looking for closed cans (block noise more) that are less portable look into ATH-M50 for around 100 on sale. I bought these (basically the same) and realized after the fact I don't really need a portable headphone set. Still, if you're looking for portable headset that is high quality (and more importantly allows you to hear what the heck is going on around you to some extent aka car horns/shouting) then either the image one or reference one (a bit less bass) are great bets.

The cord on the reference is a horrible material that crimps. The cord on these is much better although still two ears. I still think these are more comfortable and sound better.

|debonas||My only gripe about these headphones is the two wires vs one wire to the cups in other models/sets. Why do they have to put two wires ?|

|panfist||To people talking about the bluetooth version, how is bluetooth audio quality? That has always put me off from buying bluetooth or any wireless headphones. Is bluetooth audio good enough for music listening? I wouldn't really call myself an audiophile, but I definitely appreciate a good pair of head phones. Not much point if the bluetooth connection limits the quality.|

The summary is: they're the same in every way except for the trim color (ONE = black, REFERENCE = copper), but most likely Apple's licensing issues prevent companies from upgrading a "compatible" item and using the same name, even when the upgrade has to do with Apple technology that has changed. The specs on the box for the REFERENCE and the ONE are identical.
They are bass-heavy compared to the Senns/Grados/UE's I have, and it is a little fatiguing but I have not messed with EQ at all yet - still waiting for the proper burn-in first. These are ON EAR headphones, so they can also make your ears a little sore over extended periods of time.
For my MacBook Pro, they work great. I no longer have to switch headsets for Skype calls when I've been using a higher quality set for music. Everyone noticed the mic clarity when I switched over the iPhone earbuds, the ambient mic and a logitech mic.
