Summary: these are great sounding earbuds, they feel comfortable and loo pretty good. the one huge problem with these are that every time the cable touches your cloths you get this thudding sound go straight into your ears, very disappointing .
Pros: sound great, comfortable to wear
Cons: knocking sound every time wire touches something
Summary: These are solid IEM's. I've owned mine for about 2 years and they're still working. They're showing serious wear, but still working. They are decent at low volumes but the bright mid-range and grainy, sharp treble is tough to listen to a lot of music through. The newer versions of the S4 seem to be an improvement. The bass is decent, but lacks extension and is a bit wild. Definitely bleeding into the mid-range.
The cable is fine, but it is permanently "coiled.
Summary: Compared to the siblings:
This is the Promedia version of Klipsch Image S4 (and their S4i iPhone counterpart). Besides the gamer-friendly red and black coloring they also differ from the S4i by having a single button mic rather than the 3-button Apple remote. They also come with a Y-adapter that splits the TRRS plug into separate plugs for PC headphone and mic connectors.
Pros: Good fit with nice quality stock tips, fairly compact, soft cables seem to do a decent job with microphonics
Cons: Bass-heavy, a bit lacking in the upper ranges, soft cables don't feel very snag resistant.
Summary: these are great sounding earbuds, they feel comfortable and look pretty good. the one huge problem with these are that every time the cable touches your cloths you get this thudding sound go straight into your ears, very disappointing .
Summary: Coming from a Sony MDR-V6 for my main set CAN, I'm very use to a flatter frequency response and far less bass. The large amount of bass can overpower the main track in some my electronic tracks however it is just strong enough in most of music making it far more enjoyable. This was mainly observable on my desktop PC with a Creative X-Fi, but on my Samsung Galaxy S, the extra bass was just enough to push the weak default source to a far more enjoyable level.
Pros: Build Quality, Built in Mic, Y-Adapter for PC
Cons: Stock tips are too soft, could not get a good seal;
Summary: I bought these in late 2012, and they barely lasted a year before the cable started coming apart. For the price point, this is disappointing. I had to hold them together with tape and superglue to keep them going! The mic is essentially useless. It functions as an inline control which I guess is handy but you simply cannot use it outdoors. It just picks up wind noise and no-one will hear what you're saying if you try to use it hands-free, even in still conditions.
Summary: Most impressed with these. They would have had five stars, but there is some noise coming from the cable whenever they bang into something (clothes, body). But the quality of the music coming out of them is absolutely brilliant.
Summary: After some research, I plumped for these phones as the price was also tempting. The sound is decent, but having to tape the button down in order to hear the music clearly is a pain. Maybe it's the fact that I'm using them with a certain MP3 player that causes this to happen.
