Klipsch Image S4 mkII,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Klipsch Image S4 "II" In Ear Headphone - Black (Electronics)
So I've been using these every day for the past ~10 days now. I got them because my old Klipsch x1s were far and away the best pair of earphones I've ever had the pleasure of experiencing, and unfortunately, the cable attaching to the plug at the end broke (I've dropped my ipod loads of times, so it wasn't really a surprise). First thing to say is the packaging is awesome, there's a flap with a little magnet in it, so you can see them, and they're dead easy to get out. The delivery was also great...
Anyways, onto the actual thing. The wires are flat, but they're still pretty thin - I'd say 2x1mm from the 'phones to the splitter, and 4x1mm from the splitter to the plug. The plug surround sticks straight out by about an inch, and it looks and feels pretty sturdy. I've had them in for most of the time I've been awake, and some of the time whilst asleep as well - they are more comfy than the x1s because they are stouter, I think. As always with Klipsch, the sound quality is excellent, as is noise isolation.
For the first couple of days, I didn't like them at all, the sound was always too tinny, and getting used to not being able to get the 'phones half way down my ear canal took a while...but after a week of breaking in, they sound much better, and sometimes my head makes up imaginary vibrations of bass for my chest to feel! They are a really great buy, cable noise is much less than what it used to be, and you get the feeling that the wires are much sturdier, though that'll take more testing, I guess.
Overall, I'd say...standard Klipsch, really really comfortable, good quality headphones and awesome sound. Be warned that they do take seemingly forever to break in though...
