Conclusion: I was in the market for a new pair of ear buds that had high end fidelity after blowing my old pair out in an unfortunate accident. I did quite a bit of research and after going to CNET.com reviews and seeing it as the #1 rated ear buds for the money, I decided to find the least expensive offering which was on this site. The transaction was great and doing business with this site was great. That being said, the ear buds are not close to worth the $56 I paid for them.
Conclusion: The first thing i noticed with these ear buds was the amazing sound quality. The second thing i noticed was how comfortable they are. One little con and it pretty much goes for all ear buds, but they tend to need adjusting in the ear occasionally. By far the best ear buds I've owned!
Conclusion: I'd definitely recommend this product to anyone looking for a top quality, top performing in-the-ear headphone. I bought a set as a gift for everyone in my family. My wife and kids all immediately recognized the superior sound quality over the other headphones they were using, especially the poor iPod headphones.
Summary: There are a LOT of in-ear phones in this price range. Out of probably hundreds of models from many brands, it's unlikely you will find more than a few pairs that sound as good as these do. For all around superior sound quality, these are an excellent choice. If you are the "I must have super bass" type, there are others with better, deeper bass. But for accuracy and quality, you likely won't beat these out.
Pros: -OK aesthetics
Cons: I feel like the all plastic design and very thin non-braided cable makes these phones feel cheap. To back that up, my pair is currently scrapped because the right ear went out slowly. I had to twist and turn the cable and tape it in a certain position to get it to work for the last year or so. I've had them for 3ish year though. So I guess that's not too bad of a run for constant use. I often worked out with them on and tugged the cables a lot on accident. So I was a ...
Summary: For the money I paid, and the use that I've put them through...I would gladly step down to the next tier of headphones and sacrifice some sound quality for function during athletic activities...plantronics makes a pretty sweet pair.
Pros: I have had these headphones for a year now and I feel like I can finally write a decent review on these.
Cons: If you are getting these for working out...I would probably say look elsewhere. While these things are tough enough to be toted around everywhere...if ANY moisture or sweat gets on the rubber earbuds they just pop out of your ear.
Summary: Fantastic headphones, though I prefer a 'warm' sound signature, and these have more of a 'cool' sound signature. They are good headphones that are worth your money, but I think they are over-hyped a little bit. There are some really good competitors. Read the reviews and go with the one that matches your taste best. Headphones are a personal thing. I would've been better off getting something else, but that's my problem.
Pros: These are ridiculously durable. Don't let that flimsy-looking cord fool you, these can take abuse. As far as sound, they are great all around and very accurate. Comfy. Klipsch e-mail tech support is really friendly (don't use their chat though). When I lost a large earpiece I e-mailed them and they sent 4 extra in 2 days at no charge!
Cons: Volume can get loud, although I wish it could go even louder as my ears aren't too good. The highs can be fatiguing and can be a little overpowering. Bass is very solid, although you're definitely not going to FEEL the beat anytime soon.
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.
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.
