Summary: The cord is flimsy when you compare it to beats by Gaga which has a thick strong cord for frequent use, but it wins over comfort. Personally, I would trade quality over comfort and go with Beats for the same price.
Pros: Does isolate noise, if you turn up the volume until everything else is tuned out. The cord is long and cushions are shaped according to the ear depth and shape and sit very well. I bought it with free shipping and a rebate so It came up to about $90. Good price at the time.
Cons: This is a good quality product, but when compared to Beats by Gaga (I tried a friend's), it doesn't compare with noise isolation or quality, but is much louder. At the time, they were both around $90. So it doesn't compare to competition.
Summary: Owned a bunch of different headphones. Tried out some of the Bose ones from different friends. DO NOT GET BOSE. If you don't like these, Bose isn't a good option, extremely over priced for so-so performance, look elsewhere.
Pros: Very clear spectrum. Awesome bass without overpowering the clear mids and extremely crisp highs. Silicon tips make a perfect seal for me, does an exceptional job of blocking out ambient noise and allows for low volume listening (saves the ear drums!). They stay in place and don't move in or out. ...
Cons: Haven't encountered any yet if any personally. Little pricey, but after all the other sets I've tried out, these were worth the money. Especially with a gift card =]
Excellent Sound, Decent Fit, Less Than Desirable Construction
Randall F., Newegg
20 January 2011
Summary: It's tough to find to find ear buds that have a good combination of price, construction and sound. These came real close.
Pros: I actually own the Klipsch S4i and have used then with my iPhone 3Gs for over a year and a half now. The sound of these ear buds is phenomenal. I had a friend of my listen to them and he said it sounded like the music was inside his head. The controls work seamlessly allowing me to control volume...
Cons: The reason for the 4 egg rating is due to the somewhat poor construction of these ear buds. I feel that they border along a 3 egg rating and at the same time I haven't found anything better than these for the money. The wire sleeve has come separated from the jack prompting me to reinforce the co...
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: To clarify: I have the normal s4, not the inline mic/remote edition (these http://www.bestbuy.com/site/image-s4-stereo-earphone/9422369.p?id=1218105502820&skuId=9422369&st=klipsch s4&cp=1&lp=3) I picked these up the other day just for the heck of it and because of their legendary status as excellent...
Pros: exciting sound, comfortable and light weight, excellent design and quality, shiny!
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
