This reviewer states it sound better than the Bose AE2i or QC15, also he can't distinguish the sound quality of these to the Audio-Technica ATH-M50, if that means anything. I personally like the sound on these phones.

The reference r6i is the one with the mic, otherwise it is the same headphone.

No, it has no mic, the one with the mic is more expensive (Reference R6i) and the controls work only on the iphone from what i hear.

These are great headphones for the price! I have had 2 pair for over a year. Very comfortable and very good sound quality.

Great sound, but bad quality of ear pads. They start flaking off after a year or so of regular use, leaving black stuff all on your ears to find later in the day. I've went through 2 pair due to this. Klipsch has no replacements to order and it doesn't seem likely that they will. Haven't found any other basic replacements online anywhere. Wish I could. Great price for good sound, but cannot recommend due to the ear pad quality.

Does this model have a mic? I seem to find conflicting information. If it does wondering if it will work for a gaming headset for xbox one with controller input. Any answers would be appreciated!

If they sound good then $30 is a good price imo. Most headphones I buy usually wear out one way another after 1-2 years. Though if I paid close to retail, I wouldn't be too thrilled either.

In for 1! I was gonna wait it out for the ATH-M50s, but tired of waiting. I guess I'll get these for now and maybe the ATH-M50s later.

YMMV, but I was able to get them to price match via chat for additional $1.66 off:
https://home-yot-store.myshopify....ones-black


They said "Thank you for your patience while I looked into this. I noticed that home-yot-store.myshopify.com is not one of our main competitors. Usually, we do not honor price match with them. However, we value you and your business, I would like to honor the price difference for this item as an exception. You may place your order for the item and provide the order number for reference?"

So basically, you have to order it, and they will credit your account in 3-5 days. It's not much, but it helps recoup the tax I have to pay in CA.

I haven't purchased from this vendor but they offer an extensive variety of replacement pads. You might want to check them out. https://www.scansound.com/covers/...e-cushions

I've not purchased from this seller but you might want to see if they have a replacement that would work for you. https://www.scansound.com/covers/...e-cushions
