Summary: Got them for 50 which makes the value even better!
Pros: These headphones sound great for the price, and there is no need to get anything that costs more. Will buy another pair when this breaks but i doubt this will happen. Excellent build quality, fits great, everything I wanted and more!
Cons: Cannot wear with any kind of over ear headgear because it will push them into your ear which is very uncomfortable.
Summary: I've read in reviews that the plugs don't fit--well, the S4 comes with four different size sets of plugs... If they don't fit, then the person must be a very tiny person or a giant. The aluminum case is about as good as an Altoid's box--pathetic for Klipsch.
Pros: Great, solid bass; no boom type c rappy noise. Mid range doesn't overextend/impinge on the lows or highs; solid, very solid. Clarity of the high end sound is bright with outstanding detail. Contains a set of dual-magnet micro-speakers. I don't know of any sub $100 headphones that have these... Th...
Cons: Cheap y-cable. Not unlike most earplugs on the market, though. The upside is the two-year warranty that covers breakage.
Summary: I really, really wanted to like these. The reviews were mostly positive and they seemed just right for me. Alas, I could not get them to fit properly and as a result, the sound I got was tinny without any bass at all.
Pros: Different sized silicone inserts for different sized ears
Cons: Couldn't get them to fit properly Ended up with unsatisfactory sound
Summary: My budget could have allowed me to spend more but I took a gamble and gave the Image S4 a go; I was not dissapointed at all. These are by far the best earbuds for the cost and completely sustains my trust and loyalty to Klipsch as a company. Great Job. Get them while you can!
Pros: Excellent sound - superior to equally priced earbuds. Good quality - plastic not aluminum but still feel great in my ear Unsurpassed quality- Like all Klipsch products it is obvious they know what they are doing and doing it well!!
Cons: Would rather have a bit more weight to the earbud; but also pays off with running as I don't feel like they are going to pull out of my head. Other than that.... absolutely nothing con about these at all!
Summary: not too bad for $80 the 18ohms seem a bit low. Given how well the sound isolation works, there is no need for such a low impedance. Even in environments WAY OVER 100dbs, I find myself not needing to go over 50% volume. Why such a low impedance?
Pros: -For $80 these things are decent -more than enough base -an amazing ear plug! -The case they come with is pretty cool as
Cons: -They have a flat spot in the upper end of the spectrum -The opposite of what i would call bright when it comes to the highs.
Summary: i've gone through 4 - 5 different types of earbuds in the past 4 years or so. altec, jvc, sony... i have no reason to switch now. these are just awesome. the sound is worlds better than my past pairs, and most importantly, they STAY IN MY #%&@#$@ HEAD.
Pros: truly beautiful sound don't "advertise" too much lightweight (yes, that can be an advantage) comfortable for long periods they don't fall out of my head when i sneeze
Cons: the cord does seem a bit flimsy... whatever. just throw down $10 for extra warranty if you're worried. great earbuds under $100 are a rare gem. it's worth it to invest extra
