Klipsch R6 Bluetooth Review with Features
Battery Charge Equals Long Listening Pleasure
We all know how irritating it can get when you are in the middle of a fantastic song, or call and your battery needs recharging.
The research and design team at Klipsch know the importance of having a headset that not only gives you the best in high quality sound and performance, but will also last out the day, so they created one with a built-in, rechargeable 220 mAh battery.
This battery by Klipsch admirably serves its purpose to grant you up to 18 hours of enjoying your favorite audio, as well as handling your important calls, all without the concern of your battery running out unexpectedly.
The battery status indicator is an iOS battery monitor, and the indicator light is red when it is charging.
This is a very nice feature, as you don’t have to fret that you may miss an important call while you are out running errands, exercising or picking up the kids, as the neckband is constructed with a vibration-alert system.
The alert system is located within the left hand control pod, and the neckband will give off a gentle vibration, one that you’ll usually feel near your collar bone.
Simply use the right control pod to answer the call by way of the built-in cVc microphone. Your neckband has an IP water resistant rating of IPX4, so it is considered splash proof, but we do not recommend complete immersion.

Design and Comfort

Tips for Getting the Most Out of Your Klipsch Headphones
If you want to get the best possible experience from your Klipsch R6 Headphones, it pays to follow a few basic, common sense rules. The first thing, is to keep your headphones away from any heat sources, such as radiators, cooking stations and even amplifiers that can get a little warm, so you don’t damage the internal parts.
Secondly, don’t get them near the pool, shower, or anywhere else where they run the risk of being completely submerged.
While it is true they have an IP water resistant rating of IPX4, consider that more ‘splash’ resistant.
You value your hearing, and you don’t want any shocks to the system. When using these headphones, make sure that your volume is at its lowest point before you insert the headphones into your ear canals. After which you can turn the volume up after they are inserted, in this way you avoid damaging your ear drums.
If you need to mute your the microphone for any reason, such as taking an incoming call, simply press and hold down the ‘volume up and volume down’ buttons at the same time while you take your call. Voice control for your headset is accessed by doing a press and hold on play/pause. Play/pause also helps you reject a call simply by pressing and holding play/pause.
