Excerpt: Had a pair of Shure SE-210's for nearly five years. Loved them, and hated myself for losing them after such a good run! I spent over an hour at B&H trying potential replacements in the under-$200 category, and was astonished that one of my top two choices were these Klipsch in-ears for under $50!
Pros: Comfortable, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight
Summary: I lost my Shure SE425's recently. Devastated, I knew I wasn't going to spend another $300 on earbuds, so I did my research and found these. In many ways, these are better than the ones I had. First off, these things are tons more comfortable. I am convinced that I have weirdly shaped ear canals, and I can wear these for hours. Also, I think the construction is pretty solid, though the cord is thinner than what I'm used to. Time will reveal. Overall, the sound is good.
Pros: Comfortable, Compact, Good Bass, Good Value, Great Sound, Lightweight
Excerpt: As to be expected with Klipsch, high end is clear and crisp. The mid-range response is also clean. Low end is there, but a little soft. Overall, I am very satisified with these ear buds given the price point.
Summary: I bought these on sale at radio shack for $41. I could never see myself paying $80 for these. Don't get me wrong, these are nice ear buds, but that's all they will ever be. Don't buy any ear buds expecting them to be anything like over-ear headphones. If you are used to those and don't spend hundreds of dollars on ear buds, you are going to be disappointed, period. These are very nice for someone who doesn't want to lug around big headphones all the time.
Pros: Very good dynamic range, very articulate and clean sound, very comfortable, decent quality.
Cons: Carrying case is very cheap, bass leaves some room for improvement, a little bit to expensive.
Summary: I read some reviews that said these headphones have good bass. I don't hear it. They don't have a tinny sound either. It's just that they sound average to me. I'm probably not the best judge of sound quality. But, my old Koss headphones seemed to have more bass and my cheap Sony headphones seem to have about the same overall sound quality. I own Klipsch floor speakers for my house. I'm a fan of Klipsch. I'm not dissatisfied with the headphones, per se.
Pros: They are comfortable. They sound okay.
Cons: I've observed one flaw. The wire insulation is made of a nice rubbery material that gives the cords a nice feel to touch and hold. It feels like high quality material. Unfortunately, when the wires are bumped or rubbed against clothing and other obstacles, it seems to transfer sound to headphones. It's kinda hard to explain. But, unless I'm sitting perfectly still, I get unwanted noise from the wires rubbing my shirt. This is not electrical interference. It's a physic...
Summary: I paid slightly less than half of MSRP and I whole heartedly believe I got a steal. I believe the MSRP is a bit high for what you get.
Pros: These ear buds are crystal clear. They do not have the muffled sound that factory ear buds have. I have tried, and I mean really tried get these things to clip, but no luck. I did manage to make my ears ring. The noise reduction works better than expected. I work in an office and at 50% volume I can not hear someone standing next to me talking. These headphones perform differently with each genre of music, please see below. Comfort on the headphones is great, I have w...
Cons: Cable - It seems like regardless of what I purchase from Klipsch, the cable is a pain. It tangles way too easy. It loves to roll on itself. The legth is great, except for when I have a tangled mess in the middle.
Excerpt: Bought these to replace my old Koss Porta Pros, used mostly to work out, and while commuting sometimes.The sound is actually really nice, not too much bass, (Like most of the new high end buds) thank goodness, and they pretty much stay in my ears, which is a problem that I have with most in ear phones.
Klipsch Image S4 offer decent sound for their price.

Excerpt: Pros: I've had the Klipsch s4's for a a long time. I've had plenty of ups and downs with them, allow me to clarify. I had S___re e2c before but they broke after much abuse. I picked these up because of rave reviews in the price segment, I immediately fell in love with the comfort, and the sound alike. The bass was livelier compared to my older IEM's and mids and highs were on point, not drowned or muffled. I had to make my friends listen to these.
