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: These are probably the best earphones you can get on the market for this price. They cancell all the noise out and you can hear each part of the music. They wrap around the ipod easily. They are very comfortable. On the other hand, I have found that if you put them into tight pockets, (such as those found on jeans, the earbuds are prone to come off and you have to ding back into your pocket to find them.
Pros: Noise cancelling, Good quality, Sharp Bass, Price
Summary: For the price these are probably some of the best headphones that you can get. The bass response is excellent and the clarity at higher frequencies is on a par with headphones worth two times more. The tips that are included won't fit everyone, and a poor seal around the ears will lead to ear infections which can be either irritating or painful.
Pros: Very comfortable, Excellent sound quality for the price
Great sound quality, BUILD QUALITY needs attention

Summary: While the headphones worked, I would give them a 5 star review all over, because the sound quality is incredibly good for the price, they sound more like £100 headphones, the quality is really great from bass to sparkly treble, obviously not on the level of the real high-end headphones such as klipsch x10, but these are a really great choice for most casual music listeners.
Summary: I use my player when running, I listen mostly to indie music and alt country bands, Calexico,Jenny Lewis, KOL, Raconteaurs, Bon Iver, etc,etc. I've been using Shure's SE210 headphones with my Cowon D2+DAB for the last couple of months and although the detail and clarity is impressive no matter how much fiddling I have done with fitting and finding a good seal they just do not have any bass response to speak of, consequently the EQ has to be set very bass heavy.
Summary: I bought these after using mainly sennheiser in-ear phones for many years, but recently i`ve become disillusioned with the quality of sennheiser. They only seem to last a short time before falling apart or failing. So I thought I`d try a new make and these seemed to get good reviews. As soon as I put these on it was instantly apparent the difference in quality of these ear phones.
