Excerpt: "...my eye landed on the Klipsch Image S4 headphones. I purchased them, and right out of the box they amazed me. In my opinion, they are BETTER than any pair of headphones I've ever heard, including both Beats by Dre, Bose, and Skull Candy (the most expensive ones that they offer). The range is incredible, and the bass does not overpower the rest of the music, but sounds crisp and clean. I always recommend my headphones to friends, and they don't believe ...
Summary: I came to these earphones from a pair of Shure SE110s that gave up on me. I read countless excellent reviews for these all over the internet so thought I'd give them a chance. The bottom line is that I hated them from the very beginning - the high end is fizzy.. any music with cymbals is basically runied by these phones. Bass is mushy and not well defined. I wasn't expecting miracles, but these were painful.
Summary: I bought these to replace an old, broken pair of Shures. Great while they lasted but then the cable broke where it joins the jack and after only a couple of months. Regret wasting my money and I would recommend them to anyone.
Summary: Good value for money, heavily discounted at Amazon - free even, if you sign up to Audible. But constant use (careful plugging and unplugging) seems to have taken its toll. Bought from Amazon, live outside UK, don't know if warrenty covers repair....doubt it. They were great while they lasted though.
Pros: Easy, comfortable fit.. Great sound, even bass, when snuggly fitted.
Cons: After 18 months I have a loose connection somewhere around the jackplug.
Summary: I researched for hours for a new £40-£50 set of in-ear headphones on the internet and came across the Image S4's on many review sites. Every one of them gave an excellent review for these headphones, highlighting the 'value for money' aspect, mainly about the amazing audio quality that these headphones have for their price. I have never tried a Klipsch product so I was quite skeptical when buying these headphones.
Summary: I am an audiophile. Love my music and truly appreciate good quality sound. For years I have used Ultimate ears headphones at 150 pounds plus. Considering that they look ugly as hell I didnt care because the were mind blowingly good. I had them 4 years before they died. I buried them in the garden with my many dead hamsters and goldfish and said goodbye.
Summary: I agree with the reviewer who complained about the build quality earlier. My ones came out of the box with one of the side not working. Returned hassle-free with Amazon. I did not bother to get a replacement, but from the one ear I did experience it sounded like it had good clear sound. I own a pair of Denon in-ear phones too, and they are still better. But for such a reputable company, the quality checking needs a lot of work, otherwise they will lose a lot customers.
Summary: Amazing sound quality for the price but I would pay more if they would be more durable. In year time I had three pairs of them, fortunately had to exchanged them each time within warranty but this time I am just going to go with something else.
Summary: At the low end of the single driver IEMs Klipsch Image S4 delivers much more than what you pay for it. There are models from Sennheiser & other well known brands which fall short of expectations at the same price bracket. Pros: Accurate bass, it doesn't overdo the low end. The mids sound great, vocals have a lot of clarity & instrument separation is great. There's no hissing or sibilance at high frequency even when you play at high volume.
Summary: its a nice piece of earphone , but the price has pumped it up with the ue 400 , still these are really nice , just better then the s3 , a bit more bass , harsh as s3 , mid is good , but the hard case is the best part . i will say try the t-jays 3 , they are up for it and better then these , these things have bad microphonics . again the price is a bit high . take the s3 .
