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...

Sublime sound for the price; in-line mic; highly recommended

The buds tended to wiggle out of optimal position when we were on the move

What else can one say? These headphones will get you there; they possess that magical X factor that makes you feel as though you’re in the studio with the artists, and they’ll make you fall in love with whatever’s playing.

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 S4i Review

 

The Klipsch Image S4i is one of the only non-Apple iPhone headsets on the market that supports both the iPod Shuffle's VoiceOver function and the iPhone 3GS's Voice Control.

Klipsch Image S4i review

 

Improving on the Apple iPhone buds is easy, but at what price?

Useful extra controls ; iPod shuffle 3G-compatible

Poor value ; Some ergonomic compromises

Expert review by:

Klipsch Image S4i

 

The Klipsch Image S4i earphones offer up sound quality on par with and better than sets that cost many times as much, and they include compelling extras for iPhone and iPod users.

Exceptional sound quality for the money ; Very comfortable ; The package includes a few handy extras such as a storage box and cleaning tool ; A call answer button, mic and iPod playback controls integrated into the cord

The cable is pretty thin and tangle-prone ; The included ear tips may not work for everyone

Klipsch Image S4i review

 

The Klipsch Image S4i is a high-quality set of earphones, but it's the three-button controls that make them fully iPhone 3GS and iPod shuffle-compatible that make them special. We take a closer look.

Built in controls enable iPod shuffle compatibility; great sound quality

Twice as expensive as the iPod shuffle itself; not quite as good sounding as other earphones in this price bracket

At £90 these earphones aren’t exactly cheap, although they do offer great sound quality. The presence of full iPod controls on a set of headphones is rare, and these make a great audio upgrade for iPod shuffle owners (although at twice the price of the...

Klipsch's Image S4i earphones have primarily been designed for use with either an iPhone 3GS or iPod shuffle with VoiceOver. Although they'll work with any audio device with a 3.5mm headphone jack, the S4is have a couple of features that are only...

At 90, the Klipsch Image S4i is far from cheap and may be overkill for the shuffle, but if you want a great headset for an iPhone 3GS, look no further

Klipsch Image S4i earphones with mic

 

The cord keeps these buds from perfection. The warranty gives some security though.

Full range bass mids and highs. Distortion not noted. 2 year warranty that you will need

Cheap cord

Klipsch Image S4i earphones with mic

 

I would definitely buy these again. Well worth the $100. Great sound and functionality = great value. The in-ear nature blocks outside noise quite well for not being advertised as "noise cancelling". I've used these on many flights and can only hear my...

Earbuds are comfortable; sound is spectacular; button compatibility is most welcome

flimsy cord, including connection to 1/8" jack; cord length; doesn't come with optional foam earbuds

Good functionality, good sound

Made very poorly. Very thin, cheap wires and the connection between the wire and jack is very flimsy, an obvious design flaw. After 4 months of use, the jacket wore off near the connection with the jack and the frail individual wires are now exposed
