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
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: Before you buy, Google 'image s4 broken' and you should see some other people with the same problem, left or right ear piece going out. Some people say they don't sound good enough, these are some of the best sounding 'phones for the price, I just wish the build quality was a little better I...
Pros: - They sound great, distortion of music isn't as bad as other models around this price range, I love how it makes all my music sound so much better than my old 'phones. - 1 year warranty. - Good amount of ear buds and and a nice carrying case. - They look cool.
Cons: - Well they broke within one year, a little past the 6 month mark. On top of that I lost my recipe. The reason they broke was because of the horrible cord. The way they broke is the left piece just stoped giving sound, now if I wiggle the cord a little around the end of the connector it will work...
Summary: Like Mary Poppins, Practically Perfect in Every Way.
Pros: Klipsch deserves a lot of credit getting the "little things" right before even considering the transducer. Even then they did a great job, the earphones are a pleasure to listen to, superior in sound quality to other headphones I've used, including some similarly priced. The cable - The thin wire...
Summary: Pandora internet radio + image S4s = nirvana. Love my smartphone for this reason.
Pros: Fantastic, balanced sound which brings out minute details you never heard before. Wonderful ergonomics, wore mine for over a year, never wore anything more comfortable (I guess with earbuds it's more like "less uncomfortable".. all I can say is I've forgotten I was wearing headphones after a coup...
Cons: I lost mine after a year and a couple months. It was terrible. I actually only had to make a review because in my quest to purchase more, I decided to read the reviews and found missing eggs for silly things.
