This review is from: Klipsch Image X10i Noise Isolating In-Ear Headset with 3-Button Mic for iPhone / iPod - Black (Electronics)
In-ear phones like these depend on a very good seal of the "gel" inside the ear canal, We all vary in shape, size etc, that includes the internal dimensions of ear canals.

As a previous S4i owner, I fitted the same large sized gels and was eagerly anticipating something special during my first listening with these top line phones. I was disappointed, volume was low, sound was weak and washed out, with no depth or warmth. The largest gels were too small, even with the X10's inserted deeply into my ear canals, they sounded awful and wouldn't remain in place. I immediately repacked the X10's for return. Amazon refunded the costs without question.

All the tips supplied by Klipsch appear to be too small across the range. If you know you require large tips, then I urge you to try before you buy. I later improved the fit of a new pair of S4i's by replacing the original gels with Comply TX100 foam tips (large) Comply TX-100 Foam Replacement Eartips - Large (3 Pairs), Perhaps these would help potential buyers or those who already own in-ear phones which are a loose fit.
