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.
Summary: I bought this pair when they were on sale. Sound quality is decent, noise cancellation is so-so, you have to use the biggest buds and fit them very very snug. On Android devices the mic and the remote don't work, only the play/pause button is functional, but on iPhone they work great, as advertised The hard case and the number of extra buds are very nice. Why 1 egg? The 3.5mm connector is of VERY LOW quality. It's broken after only 2 months, from regular use.
Summary: I bought these because of the Klipsch brand but this falls far from the mark. I prefer listening to standard Apple iPod headphones than these. I previously owned Shure SE215s, which cost nearly 2x as much, but I think much better value for the money than these headphones. Music is just not enjoyable to listen to with the Klipsch S4i headphones.
Pros: - Bought at a heavy discount (nearly 50% off). - Sound isolation is quite good with low microphonics (sthethoscope-like cable noise).
Cons: - Sound quality is, frankly, terrible. It sounds muddy and lacks clarity. - Bass is overwhelming, but again, it just sounds muddy.
Summary: To elaborate I first had a gaming version of the s4i, klipsch was out of stock with those and sent me the s4i. So 1 gaming headphones have died and 2 s4i.
Pros: Great sound for the price. Absolutely incredible sound. Fits very nicely in my ears.
Cons: My first pair was a s4 (without mic) and its been 2-3 years and still running great. But when I got the s4i it broke within a week. One ear died. I contacted klipsch and they replaced it. When i got the new pair around a week later one ear died again. I Had them replaced again, and the same dam thing happened to the new pair. I'm guessing the mic has to do something with this. Or that I am really unlucky, but my s4 is doing great. Now I just feel bad and don't want to...
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.
Headphones are unbeatable just dont order from SOUNDZDIRECT LTD

Summary: Best headphones I have ever owned, they is nothing comparable for the price and ever so comfortable. However the 2 year warranty might as well not be there. They only accept faults with the product out of the box. So basically once they have been worn, it becomes void. No offer or replacement headphones or part refund. If you are to buy these, don't buy them from SOUNDZDIRECT LTD.
Summary: I got these after seeing great reviews left, right and center from "reputable" people/organisations. These were fantastic for the three days that it lasted. Packed them back in the pouch. After getting the out the next day, the right ear bud refused to work. I tried changing the music source volume and the balance but had no luck.
