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 S4A for Android (Black) review: 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 S4A


When the iPhone 4S was released, much chatter was had over how far ahead Android phones remained in the race to build the ultimate smartphone. While it is true that some ‘Droid devices have the upper hand when it comes to stuff like built-in...

Small, light, and comfortable ; Lively sound with punchy bass ; Android device compatibility

Using in-line control for music pulls phone out of active app, redirects to Klipsch app ; Volume control a little odd

The Klipsch Image S4A is not only the first but, for the time being, also the only product to provide Android users with this kind of music player and phone control in an earphone.

Klipsch Image S4i


Suddenly, it seems the market is full of earphones intended specifically for the iPhone and recent iPodsmost of them even have the letter "i" in their names, but it would be a mistake to assume they're all "i"dentical. Klipsch's new Image S4i ($99.99...

Built-in iPhone/iPod controls and mic. Works with iPod shuffle's voice-over feature. Strong bass response. Secure, comfortable fit

Controls only guaranteed to work with iPhone 3GS and newer iPods

For $100, you get a great-sounding pair of earphones that controls the latest iPods and iPhone, and even works with the iPod shuffle voice-over feature.

Klipsch Image S4A & S4i review


The Klipsch Image S4A & S4i sound great, but Android users might find the inline controls a little on the sparse side.

Klipsch Image S4i


Award-winning sound performance

These Klipsch S4i noise-canceling headphones are made and designed to work flawlessly with Apple I-pod, Apple I-phone and most other Apple electronics. Its 3 button wired remote control which is conveniently attached to the cord is the control center...

There is not a whole lot to say in the way of bad things for these headphones. They deliver crisp clear audio, covering all range of sounds from your deep bass tones to your high pitched tones. If anything bad could be said about these headphones it...

While there is the fact that the controls sometimes malfunction in high moisture areas and they may be uncomfortable for some users, they deliver some of the highest quality sound that you can find at that price range. Therefore we give the Klipsch S4i...

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...
