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.

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 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 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

Bought this in an airport electronics store, desperate for a phone headset that didn't require charging. Ear buds can become uncomfortable after long period of wear, but the sound is fantastic ... great for listening to music or phone calls

phone microphone lacks any noticeable noise canceling and picks up all kinds of background noise; every person I spoke with, in all conditions indicated that the sound was scratchy and busy

Ear plugs worked ok for me

They cause my iPOD to skip, pause and be otherwise unusable
