Excerpt: This is one of the first sets of headphones that I invested in. They are excellent in-ear headphones with a somewhat expensive price of $80. They produce wonderful sound for you to appreciate and have a great base as well produced from the neodymium magnets. I have read reviews of these headphones being brittle but I have not yet had that problem since I took them out of their original box.
Klipsch Image S4 has great sound quality, dependability

Excerpt: I picked these headphones amongst others due to the very positive reviews on CNET. When I first got these headphones I was dissapointed by the sound. Compared to my 15 dollar phillips "virtual surround" headphones, they sounded thin, with very little mids. However, i kept wearing them, and soon i got used to the sound and loved them.
Excerpt: I did my homework when I decided to purchase this product, and I am very satisfied with this pair of headphones. The sound cancelling feature works very well, and the sound quality is wonderful (I don't find any specific boost in bass or treble, but it is a delight to listen music with). I am a frequent flyer, and having a pair of noise canceling headphones to take out the plane engine noise makes my flight more musically enjoyable.
Summary: Got it a few days ago. These in ears are awesome! Crystal clear sound and sufficient bass. The new flat cable doesn't tangle at all. A bit of cable noise though. Needed some trying with the correct size and fitting of the earpieces but after you have found the correct one this is a great product! The pouch for carrying is nice to have, preferred the old tin case.
Summary: I've owned a set of the original S4's since they came out and just as they were beginning to succumb to rough treatment over the years these came out. Pros: -Still great sound for ear buds: Nice crisp highs, warm middles, and balanced bass. They're not perfect but you can't expect theater-quality sound from ear buds, I think this is as good as it gets in the price range -The flat cable is almost impossible to tangle and feels much more robust than the older design.
Summary: When I first placed these in my ears I was frankly disappointed with the sound. I adjusted the equalizer on my smartphone, and selected more current music thinking that it was the sound quality of the music I was playing. Then I remembered reading in the manual something about twisting the buds and looping the cord over the ears for a sport fit. I twisted the bud and WOW it was like turning on an amplifier! I did not have these inserted properly in the ear.
Summary: I honestly feel sorry for people who don't have these headphones. Out of every brand and every type of headphone I have ever owned, these have the best sound quality by far. No comparison. They sound like a concert in your ears.
Pros: Comfortable, Compact Design, Great Sound Quality
Summary: I have heard so many great reviews about these earbuds. Klipsch has always been known for superior audio equipment. I have tried Sennheiser, Dr. Dre, Sony, JVC, etc. I do like the Dr. Dre's as well as these due to the heavy bass but Dr. Dre's do not last more than a year before one of the speakers goes out. These are crisp & has good bass. The ear plugs fit well although numerous people states does not fit.
