Summary: My dad once once told me that you have to hear good songs at what he called "proper volume". These provide that and so much more. For me, these buds have earned their keep many times over in sheer "audio nirvana". If you are hard on your gear these might not last you long, but properly maintained this set of buds will provide many, many hours of audio bliss for the purchaser
Pros: Incredible sound for the price. I use them with my music collection on my laptop (MSI 17" - Also a great purchase from New Egg) and these things will blast my ears out if I turn it up loud enough, which I often do. Compared to 20-50 dollar buds these are a revelation. If you like your music loud, yet with all the clarity and detail that enthusiasts desire, you should check these out !
Cons: Some reviews have said the wires are thin and flimsy. I have owned mine since august 2009, It's now April 2011 - I have always taken care of mine, and I am as 100 % stoked with my purchase today as the first day they arrived !
Summary: sorry newegg, i got these at a local store bacause i had 75$ in gift Cards there, but worth every penny. they do take time to break in. it takes about a hour or 2 for the break in period. not to bass heavy eather. ware these as over the ear headphones, and have the body of the bud in your ear. it may seem not right, but it is. if that does not work, flip the buds, the left on the right, and the right on the left.
Pros: 1. These are not muddy sounding AT ALL 2. they work PERFECTLY when worn/used correctly 3. passive noise isolation is spot on 4. does not kill your ears after hours of usage 5. audiophile quality
Cons: 1. takes some time to break in the mini speakers. 2. Price is some what high, but worth it. 3. falls out some times, when not worn correctly 4. can be hard to put in
Summary: The cord is flimsy when you compare it to beats by Gaga which has a thick strong cord for frequent use, but it wins over comfort. Personally, I would trade quality over comfort and go with Beats for the same price.
Pros: Does isolate noise, if you turn up the volume until everything else is tuned out. The cord is long and cushions are shaped according to the ear depth and shape and sit very well. I bought it with free shipping and a rebate so It came up to about $90. Good price at the time.
Cons: This is a good quality product, but when compared to Beats by Gaga (I tried a friend's), it doesn't compare with noise isolation or quality, but is much louder. At the time, they were both around $90. So it doesn't compare to competition.
Summary: Owned a bunch of different headphones. Tried out some of the Bose ones from different friends. DO NOT GET BOSE. If you don't like these, Bose isn't a good option, extremely over priced for so-so performance, look elsewhere. Tried a wide variety of Skullcandy's, a couple high-end Bose sets, and some others blah blah blah. Broke these in and listened to a high quality audio file and it beat them all.
Pros: Very clear spectrum. Awesome bass without overpowering the clear mids and extremely crisp highs. Silicon tips make a perfect seal for me, does an exceptional job of blocking out ambient noise and allows for low volume listening (saves the ear drums!). They stay in place and don't move in or out. I would highly recommend these over Bose.
Cons: Haven't encountered any yet if any personally. Little pricey, but after all the other sets I've tried out, these were worth the money. Especially with a gift card =]
Excellent Sound, Decent Fit, Less Than Desirable Construction

Summary: It's tough to find to find ear buds that have a good combination of price, construction and sound. These came real close.
Pros: I actually own the Klipsch S4i and have used then with my iPhone 3Gs for over a year and a half now. The sound of these ear buds is phenomenal. I had a friend of my listen to them and he said it sounded like the music was inside his head. The controls work seamlessly allowing me to control volume, playback as well as aspects of my calls. While they don’t keep out all noise, I feel that they do a sufficient job. People that I talk to aren’t able to tell that I’m using ...
Cons: The reason for the 4 egg rating is due to the somewhat poor construction of these ear buds. I feel that they border along a 3 egg rating and at the same time I haven't found anything better than these for the money. The wire sleeve has come separated from the jack prompting me to reinforce the connection with electrical tape (This also happened at the ear pieces). The electrical tape helped them survive for a few months before the wire completely separated. I’m not go...
Summary: Got them for 50 which makes the value even better!
Pros: These headphones sound great for the price, and there is no need to get anything that costs more. Will buy another pair when this breaks but i doubt this will happen. Excellent build quality, fits great, everything I wanted and more!
Cons: Cannot wear with any kind of over ear headgear because it will push them into your ear which is very uncomfortable.
Summary: To clarify: I have the normal s4, not the inline mic/remote edition (these http://www.bestbuy.com/site/image-s4-stereo-earphone/9422369.p?id=1218105502820&skuId=9422369&st=klipsch s4&cp=1&lp=3) I picked these up the other day just for the heck of it and because of their legendary status as excellent budget iems. I really wasn't expecting jaw dropping sound, especially since I was currently pricing some iems several price brackets above these.
Pros: exciting sound, comfortable and light weight, excellent design and quality, shiny!
