Klipsch Image S4 II In Ear Headphone – : Good, but bear some caveats in mind

I had the old klipsch s3 for about a year and a half now and i decided to get an upgrade recently. These s4 ii definitely outperform the s3 (as they should) in terms of sound performance (with better mids and slightly stronger bass). So far i have been burning in my s4 for just over 50 hours, already i can sense how much better they are than the s3 (which i have been using for a while). The flat cable is also a great feature, now you won’t have to suffer the pain with the cables all tangled up. The fits are also better than the old s3, now i can go jogging with my earphones plugged in without having to fiddle with it every 5 minutes. In my opinion, to get the most out of your earphones, you must find the right size bud and to have them fitted properly. Keep seeing these reviews on how easy they break, i have only had them for 2 days so can’t really comment on that specific aspect.

Very comfortable fit, excludes most noise, clear sound. This is my second pair of this model hope they last a bit longer than the first pair as i lost sound from one earpiece but they are a good buy and are just as good as bose.

Sound gorgeous once played in a bit. Had to purchase seperate buds to fit my ears though.

Some of the best headphones i’ve had.

  • Good, but bear some caveats in mind
  • Maybe my pair were indestructible?
  • Excellent sound and noise isolation but broke very quickly

  • Noise isolating in-ear headphones with enhanced sleek profile
  • Award winning sound delivers deep bass and full range clarity
  • Patented oval ear tips provide comfortable wear for hours
  • Perfect seal keeps your music in + blocks outside noise
  • New tangle resistant flat cables

Excellent, well balanced sound. Not sure why klipsch don’t have right angle headphone jack like their competition. Its a weak point in the design and always breaks. They’ve even carried it over to the new r6.

Great earphones the best you can buy i recommend these you should buy ive had for to months and they’ve only got better.

No matter how much they cost, they always seem to have a life cycle of about a year. My third pair of shure se535s that cost £350, nope, that’s no deterrent for my erratic forgetful brain. Because of this i’m now punishing myself with not being able to purchase headphones that cost over £50. Fortunately the klipsch’s make that punishment very bearable. They sound great, they fit well (though admittedly i did swap the silicon tips for my shure foamies – they made for a better seal and were highly comfortable, you can purchase these separately if you wish). A lot of the reviews here say these break quickly and frequently which just isn’t the case. I’m not sure how these reviewers were using their earbuds, but in the nearly two years i owned my pair (before obviously losing them) i only ever had to wrap some tape around the 3. 5mm jack plug to keep it stiff. Otherwise, wrapping them up, stuffing them in my jeans rear pocket, getting them sat on, they went through hell and still came out strong and ready to put up with another day.

Break somewhat easily, i’ve owned about 5 of these, and each broke after a few months use. Sound quality is good, but not great.

I read and researched reviews on different websites before buying this and it certainly lived up to its reputation.

I purchased these in the black friday sale for £35 to replace my original klipsch image s4 headphones (not ii with the flat cable). I have owned a vast range of of mid-market in-ear headphones (£15-£60) from the likes of sony, sennheiser, jvc etc and and in my opinion klipsch’s s4 range are the clear winners in terms of sound quality. The unique earbuds create a great seal in my ear, keeping out background noise and keeping them in while i’m at the gym, although i have heard that this is not the case for everyone so i guess it depends on your ears. The flat cable is a bit of a novelty, it does prevent tangling just looks slightly odd. As others reviews state the main downside is the build quality. While i have not had any problems with these particular earphones my previous klipsch image s4 ‘i’ headphones did become faulty but as you are buying from amazon returns/replacements are not a problem if the product does become faulty within the 2 years manufacturers warranty.

So i’ve been using these every day for the past ~10 days now. I got them because my old klipsch x1s were far and away the best pair of earphones i’ve ever had the pleasure of experiencing, and unfortunately, the cable attaching to the plug at the end broke (i’ve dropped my ipod loads of times, so it wasn’t really a surprise). First thing to say is the packaging is awesome, there’s a flap with a little magnet in it, so you can see them, and they’re dead easy to get out. The delivery was also great. Anyways, onto the actual thing. The wires are flat, but they’re still pretty thin – i’d say 2x1mm from the ‘phones to the splitter, and 4x1mm from the splitter to the plug. The plug surround sticks straight out by about an inch, and it looks and feels pretty sturdy. I’ve had them in for most of the time i’ve been awake, and some of the time whilst asleep as well – they are more comfy than the x1s because they are stouter, i think. As always with klipsch, the sound quality is excellent, as is noise isolation. For the first couple of days, i didn’t like them at all, the sound was always too tinny, and getting used to not being able to get the ‘phones half way down my ear canal took a while.

Bought these to replace my broken akg 376 which were £80 and far too quiet. The klipsch are nice and loud with very nice sound quality.

Great sounding earphones but having bough nearly 5 pairs they all broke within 3 months so i have switched to beats which have so far proved much more resilient.

After a few months, cable at the port side has become less reliable. Sound now occasionally excludes vocals if placed incorrectly. I have been good at taking care of them and slightly dissapointed in this fact. Saying that, still work fine when placed correctly and produce good quality sound at those times. Would recommend getting better (noise-cancelling) ear buds to replace the standard buds that comes with these.

If you owned the s4 model then you’ll find that this model merely has a new flat cable which feels more durable and a new soft case. At this price you get an overall quality product with decent sound specs (the result of a 8. The direct competitor is rather the denon ah-c100 model. The shure se215 and the phonak audeo pfe 012 most probably deliver better sound but cost more.

Finding no problems with the cords, like the cord device that stops tangling. Nice n bassy but not really really heavy. Over all a very good buy for me.

Superior headphones and wonderful compact case. But had superior audio from others. Check out the soundmagic e10s if audio high quality and charge is far more essential to you than appears to be like/model.

Amazing headphones, i hold coming back to them everytime i shed them.

All the things is virtually fantastic for earphones in its price category. Only minimal fault is the will need to fit it in adequately just about every time, if you really want to just take advantage of the noise cancellation.

These headphones are small and light and do a excellent position of keeping ambient seem out.

I acquired these to exchange a pair of top ears in-ear monitors whose cable had unsuccessful a 2nd time, and my experience therefore much has been very good, but not excellent. The strengths of these headphones can be summarised therefore: they healthy comfortably and isolate you rather successfully from outside the house noise and the seem is obvious, effectively-balanced and effortless to hear to across a wide range of models of audio. Having said that, they are not without the need of downsides: the seem is not the most enjoyable you can come across and the cable is susceptible to snag on nearly anything it can. If you might be likely to use these earphones at your desk, then they’ll be difficult to fault, but for use out and about, you could obtain (as i have completed) that the cable causes a lot more issues than you are prepared to settle for. Let us begin with the positives, while. To begin with, these headphones do sound very good. I’ve had mine for a month or so now and have tried using a vast range of new music with them, from early renaissance choral new music, in which delicacy of texture and accurate copy of voices was essential, to some unpleasant ed rush and optical drum’n’bass. They’ve acquitted by themselves very nicely, and i’ve had some excellent, extensive listening classes wherever the audio has under no circumstances grated or become tricky function. They are at ease, also, and isolate you perfectly from exterior noises. Nonetheless, the negatives are sufficient to make my recommendation a guarded a person.

Sadly these earphones broke in just six months of standard use with out any events i can remember of ‘abusing’ them. I found that immediately after a even though there was a significant volume imbalance concerning the remaining and suitable buds. Ideally i was just unlucky – amazon issued a refund and i have now purchased the s4i as a substitute. Pros:- superb seem excellent- good sound isolation- tangle totally free cords- 1 calendar year guarantee- means to have on the ear buds two various wayscons:- broke in just 6 weeks- struggled to continue to keep the earbuds in my ears when strolling all-around.

    I had these headphones for a18 months and they were fine. Now i have lost sound in one ear which now makes these phones completely useless. In another review the warranty was two years but amazon stated it was only the one year, so i paid a fair bit for these and feel very disappointed. I also have been an amazon customer for decades and spent fortunes with the company and their customer services somewhere over seas would not even replace or refund as a goodwill gesture, that’s loyalty for you. Oh well poor me must now go and work my butt off the save for another pair of phones but not with klipsch and maybe not the mighty amazon.

    I love the sound of klipsch headphones, and i had two pairs which i used in-parallel for what must have been over two years. Since then, however, i’ve been through three pairs, all of which have failed in one way or another almost exactly after six months of use. I always handle my headphones with care, replacing them loosely-wound in the carry pouch when not in-use, but that wasn’t enough to stop them failing at the point where the cable meets the plug (. Probably not helped by the design of recent editions changing from a right-angled to a straight plug, which is more susceptible to damage in the pocket). And it’s not always the cable – i had one pair where a driver died suddenly, completely, and without warning. I’ve managed to get warranty-refunds for all of the pairs that failed in six-months, but i won’t be buying any more. Sorry klipsch, it’s the end-of-the-road for this previously loyal customer.

        Good headphones and nice compact case. But had better sound from others. Try the soundmagic e10s if sound quality and cost is more important to you than looks/brand.
