Klipsch Image S4i Review


Magnificent headphones can transform everyday listening sessions into mystical experiences: Like a two-way conversation with God—or watching the Lakers lose in the finals. Klipsch has produced some of our favorite speaker systems, but we would never...

Auditioning Klipsch’s Image S4i earbuds was an absolute thrill. They revealed incredibly subtle elements of recordings we’d never picked up before, ranging from crowd comments on live recordings to discovering there are two Pauls and no Johns on...

Klipsch Image S3m Review


Say you're headed out on a trip, but you've lost the headphones that came with your phone (or maybe you just can't stand them any more) and those throw-away ‘buds you picked up at the airport last trip…well, you probably threw them away. You need...

Good clarity and instrumental separation ; Decent low end power ; Cool, comfortable design

Extremely sharp upper register ; Anemic midrange

Unless you like your cymbals super spicy, and sibilants with a serpentine flare, we recommend you keep on looking. We will too.

Klipsch Image S4i II ( Black)


Combining a comfortable fit with excellent sound for the money, Klipsch's original Image S4 and S4i earphones have long been among our favorites here at CNET. But the one knock against them is that they just don't hold up that well over time, a...

The Klipsch Image S4i II in-ear headphones have the same impressive sound and fit as the original S4i model but they're more durable and have a tangle-resistant flat cord. There's an integrated Apple-friendly remote/microphone and they come with a...

Opt for other models in the S4 line if you want Android compatibility or better sweat resistance; bass lovers probably won't be satisfied by the amount of bass.

The Klipsch Image S4i II in-ear headphones add a new, more durable tangle-resistant flat cord while retaining the S4 model's very respectable sound quality and superior comfort.

Klipsch Image S4A for Android (Black)


The Image S4A Headphones for Android join a solid pack of headphones in Klipsch's S4 product catalog, beginning with the original Image S4 in-ear headphones , followed by the S4i headphones for iOS devices . The S4A are the company's first earbuds...

The Klipsch S4A Headphones for Android earn our favor with powerful 8.5mm drivers, comfortable ear tips, and an accompanying Android app that smartphone owners can use to remap the in-line remote controls.

The headphones perform inconsistently on devices running Android 2.1 and lower.

Klipsch's ultracomfortable, noise-isolating ear tips are just one of the reasons I love and recommend the S4-series headphones. If you're an Android user shopping for a new pair of earbuds, the Image S4A headphones are definitely worth the $99.

Klipsch Image S4


Editors' note: As of August 2012, the Klipsch Image S4s reviewed here have been replaced by the Klipsch Image S4 IIs .

The Klipsch Image S4 earphones offer exceptional sound quality for the money. They're also very comfortable and come with a few handy extras such as a storage box and cleaning tool.

The cable of the Image S4 earphones doesn't seem very durable, and the included eartips may not work for everyone.

The Klipsch Image S4 earphones offer up sound quality on par with and better than sets that cost many times as much; they are a spectacular choice for anyone looking for new earbuds.

Klipsch Image


Klipsch's first entry into the headphone market gets a lot of help from the fact that it's marketed as “the world's smallest high-performance earphones.” They are indeed impressively small and lightweight — each earbud takes up less than two hundredths...

Extremely comforable; good bass and sonic detail; cabling designed to prevent tears

Expensive; you can hear cable thump when walking or running

The world's smallest earbuds prove that less costs more, but these smartly designed cans are worth it.

Klipsch Image Earphones Review


The Klipsch Image earphones are proported to be the "world's smallest high performance earphones," and there is no doubt that they are unlike anything I have seen. I remember seeing them at CEDIA

Excellent noise isolation ; Amazing bass extension ; Incredibly small, lightweight and comfortable

Expensive ; Higher priced than an iPod Touch ; Only available in black

There were actually times while listening to the Klipsch Image earphones that I could swear I felt a kick drum in my chest, much like I would while listening to large speakers paired with a great subwoofer. That is how great the low end is on these...

Best-value earphones


Most reviewers and users say the Klipsch Image S4 earphones -- and their iPod/iPhone compatible version, the Klipsch Image S4i (*Est. $100) -- deliver great sound quality for the price. Clarity is a strength, though reviewers say bass might be on the...

Superb sound quality, comfortable, good value

Construction concerns, slightly dominant bass

Klipsch Image S4 Earphones Review


Brilliant Sound Quality

The Klipsch Image S4 earphones provide excellent sound quality at a very affordable price. This device is comfortable to utilize and is available in the market with different items like cleaning brush and metallic box

The cord of this device is not that strong, moreover the built-in ear tips might not function for all the users

The Klipsch Image S4 earphones provide you high sound quality as compared to many other earphone devices present in the marketplace in the same price range. It is one of the best options accessible for the people searching for new earphones.

Klipsch Image S4i Headset/In-Ear Headphone (Playback 28)


The Indianapolis, IN-based firm Klipsch first entered the headphone market in 2007, focusing primarily on higher-end models such as Custom 3 ($299, no longer in production) and the Image ($349, and now called the Image X10). Over time, however, Klipsch...
