Klipsch S4 II review: Same impressive sound, better cord design
26 August 2011
Summary: The Klipsch Image S4 II in-ear headphones add a new, more durable tangle-resistant flat cord while retaining their very respectable sound quality and superior comfort.
Pros: The Klipsch Image S4 II in-ear headphones have the same impressive sound and fit as the original S4 model but they're more durable and have a tangle-resistant flat cord. They also come with a nice, compact carrying case.
Cons: No inline remote/microphone (available in step-up S4i); bass lovers probably won't be satisfied by the amount of bass.
Summary: Klipsch's ultracomfortable, noise-isolating ear tips are just one of the reasons I love and recommend the S4-series headphones. If you're an Android user shopping for a new pair of earbuds, the Image S4A headphones are definitely worth the $99.
Pros: The Klipsch S4A Headphones for Android earn our favor with powerful 8.5mm drivers, comfortable ear tips, and an accompanying Android app that smartphone owners can use to remap the in-line remote controls.
Cons: The headphones perform inconsistently on devices running Android 2.1 and lower.
Summary: While serious runners may find that the S4i Rugged in-ear headphones won't stay in their ears that securely, they're an excellent pair for gym and everyday use.
Pros: The Klipsch S4i Rugged in-ear headphones have the same impressive sound and fit as the original S4i model but they're more durable and have a sweat-resistant design. There's an integrated Apple-friendly remote/microphone and they come with a nice, compact carrying case.
Cons: While the larger remote is easier to operate by feel, it does dangle and knock around a bit when you're running; the inline remote isn't compatible with many Android smartphones.
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 Image S4.
Pros: Affordable price; solid bass; good build quality; comfortable
These in-ear headphones are comfortable to wear and they produce excellent quality sound for all types of music

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.
