Summary: CNET and PCMag.com provide detailed write-ups on sound quality, fit, design and comfort of the Klipsch Image S4/S4i.

Pros: Superb sound quality, Comfortable, Good value
Cons: Construction concerns, Slightly dominant bass
Excerpt: Every review I have ever read about the Klipsch Image S4 headphones gave them such an impressive score that I have been dying to get my hands on them. Luckily, Klipsch were kind enough to supply us with one for review. Read our thoughts after the break. The Klipsch headphone packaging is nothing special and is comprised of a cardboard box. However, it what’s inside that counts.
Excerpt: I received a pair of these as as gift and I am beyond impressed! The Klipsch Image S4 are noise cancelling, great sounding earphones that are incredibly comfortable. Their specially angled design combined with three sizes of ear tips ensure a perfect fit.
Klipsch Image S4 in Review – Double the Bass with Twice the Pace
5 August 2009
Excerpt: introduction After 2008′s popular Image X5, which debuted at $100 less than the X10, Klipsch began expanding the affordable line of their inner earphones. In 2009, the S2 and S4 join the Image line at the more reasonable prices of $49.99 and $79.99. When Klipsch designed the new earphones, they utilised brand new drivers which were made specifically for their sound signature.
Pros: Smooth highs, Excellent and detailed mids and lows, Excellent build, Ergonomic design, Excellent cable and low microphonics
Cons: Lack of Accessories, High frequencies lack clarity and body
Excerpt: Somewhere between the chintzy OEM earbuds that came with your last MP3 player, and a $400 pair of Ultimate Ears , lies the venerable midrange category. It seems to be growing like a wildfire lately, as existing PMP (portable media player) owners figure out that their players sound 100 percent better with a pair of earphones that weren’t manufactured for 17 cents somewhere in China, but don’t want to spend more than the price of the player on an upgrade.
Pros: Affordable price; solid bass; good build quality; comfortable

Summary: These stylish in-ear headphones from Klipsch are comfortable to wear and their output is excellent. We enjoyed using them for all types of music. The only problem we had is that they too easily fell out of our ears when we were a little too active or accidentally pulled on the cord.
Summary: We like it when we get to listen to Klispch headphones. It seems the company just doesn’t make duds. Not even close – every pair we’ve had in seriously impresses us. So let’s not beat around the bush: the Image S4s are another excellent pair of sound-isolating in-ears. The best we’ve heard at their not insubstantial price, in fact. However, first impressions of the S4s aren’t universally positive.
