Excerpt: I have only owned these headphones for about 2 months now, but I cannot believe I spent the last 3 years using crappy Apply iPhone stock headphones. I read that no matter what brand of MP3 player you favour, Apple, Sony, Creative, iRiver etc. one thing remains constant - the earphones that come in the box are, to all intents and purposes, suck. But it was not until I went on out a limb and tried these Klipsch ones that I truly understood what people meant!
Excerpt: With the Klipsch Image S3 earbuds being my first pair of headphones from Klipsch, I am more than satisfied with these headphones. After my old $20 Sony headphones stopped working, I wanted to try something 'better' and my friend suggested the Klipsch Image S4 earbuds. I tried on his headphones and they were great! Music sounded a whole lot better with his headphones but when I asked him about the price, he told me it cost him $75.
Conclusion: I have had these for a few months and could not be more satisfied. These buds produce a full spectrum of sound, the highest highs to the fullest bass. Uses some sort of technology by which the ear canal contact with the buds cause a great sub-woofer base effect. Never feel them in your ear, just hear great sound. By the way, these provide total sound canceling technology so be careful when wearing in a situation where you might want to listen to outside sounds.
Excerpt: I use this when I'm in the library. Good budget earphones. Sound quality is decent. I am not afraid to lose this pair, because it was not expensive. Tried it for running, does not work as well, but it helps if you wrap it around your ear. Overall good pair for daily use.
Summary: Before these, I had the Etymotic ER6's and the Ultimate Ears TripleFi. I'll be comparing the Klipschs to these.
First off, let me explain quickly why I bought these. I lost my TripleFis and frankly just wanted a pair of headphones quickly and cheaply. I had been curious about the Klipsch product and when I found these for $30 on Amazon with free 2-day shipping, I jumped: that's impulse-buy prices.
The sound quality on these is great for $30.
Pros: Very comfortable and secure, great isolation
Summary: theres no review of s3 so i am posting one and its my first too . i have many low end earphones , for me this is mid tier , cant afford even the cheapest shure 215 , so i got these from a online store , my studies said its good , cnet uk gave it 4.5/5 and others were positive too .
the package:- minimalistic , i did wanted a cable clip but okay , three pairs if oval tips , mid one fits good to me , the pouch is good too , but should have been bigger i think .
Summary: I think the S3 nails a very intermediate niche. People who's coming from cheap $10 earphones or those awful Apple sets would be blown away by the sound coming from this piece. But those who are coming from the "audiophile" side and are somewhat used to high-quality headphones of any kind would listen to it and think "well, they are just OK, but I'll take them, I need a good portable option".
Pros: Lightweight, good-looking, isolation, nice sound when the right spot is found, cost-benefit
Cons: Need of "ear tuning", annoying cable sensitivity
