Conclusion: At $349 USD, the Image will put off many buyers simply because they’re single-driver. In that price range, you’re approaching triple-driver prices (like Ultimate Ears’ triple.fi 10 Pro and Shure’s SE530 ). For less money, you can get dual-driver buds from UE or Shure, both of which provide a higher level of detail thanks to the pair of microspeakers in each earbud. But those are also much bulkier than the Image, and neither is quite as comfortable.
Pros: Extremely comforable; good bass and sonic detail; cabling designed to prevent tears
Cons: Expensive; you can hear cable thump when walking or running
