The Yokes of Our Choosing – A Review of the Klipsch X12 Neckband

The Klipsch X12 Bluetooth Neckband is worthy of the audiophile moniker. It’s for fun-loving audiophiles, not the serious, clinical-minded ones. But there’s no denying, the richness and beauty on display sets these apart from the loud din of mediocrity. The X12 may not stand tall against the very best of the mid-range, but at this price, and if you need BT, Klipsch has given us an elegant solution. As I said at the beginning, I’ve used this every day since it arrived. It’s great for music. The comfort makes it perfect for podcasts and audiobooks. This quickly became my preferred method for making phone calls. It’s such a versatile, fully featured product that it integrates into so many aspects of life. The Neckband connects with ease to all of my BT capable DAPs, such as the new Cayin N5II, Shanling M3s, and the Opus#2, and of course my smartphone, the Galaxy S6.

There’s nothing else for it. Pinky declares this device a winner! It’s certainly won me over.

Pinky is an artsy twat. Illustration, graphic design, writing. Yet music escapes him, and always has. He builds his own cables, and likes to explore the craftsmanship of others. He's a stabby one, also. At the first hint of annoyance, out comes the blade. I say he's compensating for something... in a big bad way. If we all try really hard as a collective, maybe we can have him put down.
