1.0 out of 5 stars Edit - broken within 4months?! Very poor, 2 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Klipsch Image S4i (II) In Ear Headphones w/ 3-button control and mic - Black (Electronics)
Edit: broken within 4 months, AGAIN! Very poor build quality - thankfully Amazon replaced them without quibble, though I don't anticpiate them to last.
_______________________

I'm no audiophile, but do appreciate decent sound quality and although the headphones that ship with the Iphone 5 are an improvement on the previous disposable jobs, they still weren't hitting the spot. The price of these earphones did seem a tad high, but on the basis of hours used per day whilst commuting and in the office my cost per hour is negligible if they last a couple of years like the S3's that these replace.

I work in a rowdy open plan office and struggle to concentrate unless I can block it all out - these headphones effectively isolate most of that even without any music on, and with very little volume you are cocooned in your own tunes without distraction. The other useful feature is the remote that allows you to skip through tracks on your iPhone, without having to suretitiously rumage around in your pocket, elbowing your fellow commuter in the process.

Sound quality as you'd expect is excellent and perfectly balanced - skipping through my fairly eclectic music collection the headphones seamlessly cope with whatever I throw at them. Bass response is good, but not to the detriment of everything else and makes for a very clean clear sound.

I didn't buy them for use as a headset, but on the odd occasion I've receieved a call whilst listening to music they have performed very well without needing to raise the microphone to your mouth.

The flat profile cable is meant to resist tangling, which seems to be the reality and not marketing hype - the downside is the material does seem to catch on my clothes and rustle. It in no way detracts from experience and is preferabe to the tangled mess I'd occasionally wind up with.

All of which is backed by a 2 year warranty for that little extra reassurance - whole heartedly recommended.
