Perfect headphones (from someone who is picky),
This review is from: Klipsch Image S4 Headphones (Electronics)
I ordered these after reading lots of reviews online on cnet and here, and was not disappointed.
Firstly and most importantly - sound quality. Detail is great - I love Sigur Ros and have heard depth and detail previously missing in other 20-30 pound headphones from Creative & Sony. Bass comes through beautifully on hip hop such as Mobb deep, and trance/dance music also sounds brilliant. The main thing here is the quality and depth of the bass doesn't come at the expense of detail, which it often does (if it's there at all) in cheaper headphones.
Ergonomically, these 'phones are also pretty faultless. There's no stupid connector to extend/contract the cable length trying to drag the headphones from your ear (Sony) and the asymmetric design means the 'phones don't stick out of each ear at right angles, stopping any movement of the headphones as you walk.
All in all, I'm very impressed - this is the first time I've spent this amount on headphones, but I can safely say I can see/hear the differences and would recommend them to anyone. Only caveat is to rip your tracks at a high bitrate (192+, preferably 320) - if you don't you will here defects on low quality tracks and you're missing out on great detail in tracks you love.
