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: 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
Excerpt: В целом ничего, но за такую цену у нас (4500), хотелось бы получить лучший результат.
Pros: Чистый звук, как и пишут в обзорах. Более менее незапутывающийся кабель. Хорошое качество встроенного микрофона.
Cons: Цена. (за 2к или 3к еще куда не шло) Длина провода, излишняя для гарнитуры на мой взгляд. (юзаю совместно с sgs2) Меньшая динамика по сравнению со всякими бухалками типа sony EX310LP. В процессе эксплуатации начала дребезжать кнопка гарнитуры, бесит. При эксплуатации в условиях метро, не хватает громкости, у упомянутых сонек звукоизоляция была лучше. После 2х месяцев использования элемент управления на проводе начал скрипеть при нажатии и нажиме. Сама кнопка на провод...
