5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Quality 11 May 2011
By ChrisB
I'm a serial headphone purchaser: I've got Sennheisers, VModa, jays, Sony, Apple and now My second pair of Klipsch. The audio quality is as good as I've heard from my keenest £100 pair of vmodas and outstrips Apple by a clear mile. The bass response is great and more than anything, they are the most comfortable 'phones I've ever used. The oval tips are a winner for me. If it weren't for the lack of clicker on my Klipsch Image S2s, I would have stuck with those. My only criticism of the S4i is the bud design. It looks a little like something out of 'I, Robot' and I prefer the look of the S2s. That said, these are my favourite earphones right now and I've stopped impulsively buying more!

OK, first off, I'll say this. I haven't had a pair of iPhone headphones that were more comfortable, or better sounding, than the S4is. The angle is unique to these headphones, as are the oval tips - most buds use circular tips, or the uncomfortable ridged ones. The ovals suit my ears, and are more comfortable, and better at filtering out ambient noise, than other headphones I have tried.

The sound quality is fantastically balanced, giving a warm, clear sound at all levels. I'm not an audio expert, so I'm keeping this bit brief - but they sound fantastic. I'm always a little wary of "experts" talking about clarity, seperation etc from a digital music file, because so much depends on the bitrate it was encoded at. But with that said, again, fantastic sound quality.

What keeps these from 5 stars is the thin, flimsy cable and jack. A squared, flattened jack adapter could have stopped my s4i's cable from seperating inside four months of buying them. A slightly thicker, monster style cable, would make these by far and away the best sub $100 headphones on the market. As it is, I'm taking a mark off. I'm currently deciding wether or not to buy a second pair...

5.0 out of 5 stars wow 17 May 2012
Verified Purchase
wow, the quality of these headphones was incredible, i compared this to dre tours, and these were better at everything apart from bass in my opinion, but personally i believe the bass in tours drowns the mids and highs, whilst dont get me wrong, the bass of these is still pretty massive!!!!!!
GREAT VALUE but was a tiny bit disappointed with the packaging, overall 5* nonetheless

2.0 out of 5 stars good sound, poor build 4 Jun 2012
By jared
Verified Purchase
first off, i couldn't get the right earpiece to fit without causing a fair amount of pain. maybe that's because god didn't want me to be symmetrical, i'm not sure...anyway, i ordered memory foam replacement tips, and it was fine. the sound quality was very good, especially after a week or two. but a few months later, all the black rubber pieces started splitting and breaking (around the plug, at both earbuds, the little piece that connects the left and right cord, etc.) it annoyed me, but i decided i could live with a few cosmetic blemishes. anyway, a few days ago, one of the earbuds shorted out and i've lost sound. this is just 7 months after i purchased them. to be fair, i use them pretty much every day, but i take good care of them. there is no excuse for such poor build quality. anyway, sound quality is great, build quality is awful. personally, i'm returning mine and getting a different brand. the choice is yours, my friends.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent sound and worthy for this price range 28 Jun 2011
Verified Purchase
I have used many different brand of headphones, but I have always come back to Klipsch. This is a good replacement for the white Ipod standard earphone. If you want to have better sound for your music, and don't want to pay more than what you pay for your Ipod, then this the one for you. The 3-button remote is very handy, as I keep my Ipod in my bag, I can switch my music easily with the remote. Sometime I also use this earphone with my Iphone 4, and the mic is also good to switch from music to voice call. Overall, this is an excellent product for this price range.

4.0 out of 5 stars Decent headphones 3 April 2012
By Lozza
Verified Purchase
Received these today and passed all authenticity tests (sold by mp3 accessories/soundzdirect ltd). Build quality looks a touch iffy but time will tell on this one. Sound quality is good but not miles better than my v moda remix which I bought for £22 (available currently on amazon for £29.99). There is just a little more attack at the top end. They are extremely comfortable and due to the angle of the ear piece they are easy to fit. The build quality of the v moda remix would probably tip me in their direction if I compared them side by side (which I now have) However, to be fair only time will tell if the cables last. Also, I've heard that these benefit from a 40 hr "burn in" period so maybe the best is yet to come aswell sound wise.

1.0 out of 5 stars Honestly I hate these headphones 30 Mar 2014
By suzie
Verified Purchase
Sounds quality, voice controls all of that is completely overridden by the awful material used for the cable.

I used to have a black pair of these but they broke at the cable and amazon replaced them. However, they didn't have any black ones left so they replaced them with these white ones. But the cable is a different material on the white and as other reviews have stated its almost sticky. If they rub against anything they snag and get yanked out of your ears. If you put them in clothing to make sure they don't catch on things they stick and pull down.

Honestly never ever ever buy these headphones, I don't think I have ever hated anything more and today when they got yanked out again I'm giving up. A £5 pair from ARO would be better than putting up with these. Do not buy them you also will hate them in time.
