Great sound, great placement, but the build....eh!,
This review is from: Klipsch Image S4i In-Ear Headset with Mic and 3-Button Remote Headphones for IPhone/IPod - White / Chrome (Electronics)
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...
