Conclusion: The road to audiophilia gets a little less steep, treacherous and hazardous to the wallet with Klipsch’s Image S4 headphones. For casual music listeners who can’t quite justify a pair of cans that cost five times as much as the player they’ll be wired into, Klipsch strikes a winning balance with the...
Summary: I got a pair of these to use with my iPhone for listening to music as well as making calls. So far I'm pretty pleased. I agree with raghunath that they are a little bassy, at least compared to my last cheap pair. But I don't mean that in a bad way. I like the way they sound.
Pros: Sound good, Comfortable, iPhone-compatible
Cons: large button, ear mold plastic could be firmer
Summary: These were the first IEMs I bought that were over 50$ after reading good reviews on it. Unfortunately I don't think they live up to the hype. They are definitely better than some of the other consumer-oriented brands such as Beats, Bose, etc. but they are not worth 70 or 80$.
Pros: Good overall sound quality, nice aesthetic design, one of the better "consumer" headphones you can buy at retail
Summary: Introduction –
I`ve always been a bit of a Klipsch fan. In fact the s4`s on account of Cnet`s glowering reviews, became my first proper earphone. I remember listening to my father`s set for the first time, it was that mind blowing moment for me where I realized just how much difference audio gear...
Pros: Great comfort and isolation, Sound is a step above consumer competition, Very accessible
Cons: Bass can be too much depending on preference, Upper mids too thick, Treble is harsh, Cable is thin and the straight jack is not durable
Summary: Brought these way back in 2011 for what seems like a total rip off today of $80 or so.
Good: Bass, I think the bass is too dominant with these, it makes the mids sound bad and the highs are just absolute crap.
Pros: Bass, high quality, carry case, (comfort, isolation)
Summary: You will always remember your first, and these earphones are probably the best first's i could ever get at that time. For someone who had never used anything besides apple earphones and equivalent quality earphones, so the s4's where a huge jump in terms of audio quality.
Summary: I bought these alongside the UE500, with the intent of keeping the one I liked and returning the other one. Auditioning through a stereo, the S4s were a little less lively and smooth than the UEs, and tended towards some fairly bad sibilance, especially on classical tracks with high violin parts...
Pros: Very comfortable, easy-to-use, consumer sound
Cons: Tends towards sibilance, better options for the price
Summary: These will provide very good isolation if you get the correct fit. I managed to do this by trying out all the tips affered. As others have noted, the is a little bit of distortion on the highs, which I've noticed slightly affects the vocals.
Summary: I got these about 7 months ago and I use them to listen at work. I have a very borring job and these really help to brighten my day. The mids and highs are gorgeous. The bass is good too but I would not reccommend them to a person who oppsesses about bass.
