Excerpt: These are by far the best inner-ear buds you can buy, when you compare sound quality for price. I mean that part is a no-brainer. Three inter-changeable sizes almost guarantees a good isolating fit. When theyre in, you will get lost in the music. The bass and tremble balance is amazing. I also feel its easier to wear them for a longer period than a pair of earphones. I would suggest that these be the last ear-buds youll ever need, but I cant.
Conclusion: I am very pleased with the klipsch reference s4i earbuds, the mids and highs are everything that you would exepect from klipsch, the bass was another nice suprise, not to heavy, not to light, just right, smooth and flowed with the mids and highs, it did not matter what type of music that I listened to. I would recommend these earbuds to any body that likes to listen to every instrument in the band, you will hear it.
Do a "ear test drive" before you buy it.

Summary: I recently received my S4 with great expectations, but when I first used it I got VERY disappointed. Comparing to the Sennheiser cx380 I own for running it was garbage. Poor fitting, poor noise isolation, poor bass... What the hell?!? So I went for opinions on the phones when I stumbled on Jagan´s comments and suggestion to use the headphone turned "upwards" or "wire-up" position. OH MY GOD! Made my [$] worth INSTANTLY.
Conclusion: Hello, i'm from germany and sorry my english is not so good. I have first the s4i and i was amazed what a wonderfull sound these headphones are have,i love my s4i headphones, I have them in white black and now the reference s4i, they are perfect and sound a little bit better as the image s4i. They look so much better, my new favorite for all times !!!
Conclusion: Best sound quality of all the earphones I have owned including Bose. However, due to their larger size these earphones will not stay in your ear when riding a motorcycle. I don't wear a helmet and the wind blows the earphones right out. I am sure they would work well for anyone who wears a full face helmet and of course for anyone not riding a motorcycle.
Summary: After reading many reviews on the klipsch Image s4. I set out to find out for myself if they were as good as the reviews said they were.Light and stylish,yes.Sound quality,poor. I have other in ear headphones that cost a third,and sound 10 times better.The highs are great,but the mids and bass are awful.I listen to all types of music. Lows mids,and highs need to come together as a team.
Cons: Falls Off/Out Of Ear, Poor Sound, Too Much Ambient Noise
Summary: These earphones are downright amazing! They completely blow away other earphones I've tried and even most headphones. They are way better than the Beats (ear or headphones). These made me appreciate music so much more. They are great for blocking out noise when you just want to listen to music and relax. Additionally, you will listen to them at lower volumes, helping to protect your ears. They will not disappoint. Plus, they are [$]!! Klipsch or nothing.
Pros: Comfortable, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight, Noise Isolating, Stylish
Conclusion: Great product. Worth many times more than I paid and Sonic had the best price of all. Bun-in absolutely necessary for best sound. Paying for standard shipping will save you half the waiting time. Very good customer service.
Summary: sounds great. need to work to get the better seal and sound. past 2 months i am using this earphone but i am not satisfied in the way it sounds. but after moving from the wire-down to wire-up position entire thing changes for me. now i got the excellent bass, clarity, good seal from the outside disturbance. now i am happy with this product.
Pros: Comfortable, Compact, Good Bass, Great Sound, Lightweight
