Cons: This is the second pair that has crapped out. Just sitting at the library, and I get shocked in the ear and then nothing but white noise. This is unacceptable from a company like Klipsch, and for headphones that regularly sell for 75$. Will be contacting customer support AGAIN, since they have a two year warranty.
Excerpt: These headphones sound good but the flex design of the jack allows the wires to break. I have broken two pair in about 4 months and I'm not talking about rough handling. Repeated flexing of the wire leads to failure of one or both channels. I have tried to get another pair from Klispch but no luck this third time. Kind of disappointing from a quality name like Klispch. I'll buy another brand next time.
Conclusion: I do not recommend. Not particularly comfortable, sometimes uncomfortable: earbud makes a suction with the ear - not a good feeling, like needing your ears popped on an airplane. The speaker container touching the insides of the ears is uncomfortable when adjusting - yeah, nitpicky, but it's true. most important: BAD QUALITY. Within a few days i noticed a slight crackling in the speakers, getting progressively worse.
Pros: Great sound. I used them for the train ride into Manhattan. The sound dampening quality is outstanding. I was able to zone out all the sounds from the train including the screeching noise on the 4 train as it arrives into 42nd Street. I was able to leave my Iphone 3GS in my bag and forward or rewind as I needed. The head piece attachments fitted my ear comfortably. Good clear sound and deep end as well.
Cons: Were the cable comes into contact to the 3.5 male connection broke apart in less than 6 months. I try to use glue to put it place, it did not work. I tried plastic glue. It did not work as well. The ear piece attachments are easy to lose since they are not really secure to the ear piece. I do not recommend this if you are going to use them on a daily basis like I did.
Summary: I bought the klipsch s4i along with the iPhone4 on iPhone4's launching day cause I thought my new phone deserves a good earbuds. Boy was I wrong. klipsch s4i is nothing more than a piece of sh*t! Please excuse my language or if I offended any klipsch fans, but im just trying to speak of my mind. The sound will break when the note is too high and there is absolutely no bass.
Summary: I received these headphones for a Christmas present after doing A LOT of research. I enjoyed them at first, but after less than 3 months the cord at the jack began to loosen, even though I religiously put them back into their case after every use. By the time I had owned them for 6 months, they were no longer working.
This part of the headphone is not covered by warranty, so I no longer have the headphones, or the money.
Excerpt: Oh my God I was highly disappointed with Klipsch - Image S4. The sound quality was horrible! It had NO BASS - nothing but treble. I heard great things about Image S4 thats why I decided to purchase it. At first I thought maybe I needed to adjust my equalizer by adding more bass, but gee that didnt work. It sound like a clock radio Im not kidding. Im able to compare sound because previously I had Bose ear buds and the sound was so clear and with great base!
