Klipsch Image S4i Headset
Advantages: Great Sound, Works well with iPhone, Great Customer Service, Light Weight
Disadvantages: Microphone is lacking, durability of older generation is poor
The Klipsch S4i is a great set of earphones that produces clear sound and works very well with the iPhone. The other reviewers have all said that it is a good pair of earphones that provide good sound. So I will not go into details regarding this.
What I will review is the Microphone, Build Quality and Comfort.
The microphone is very receptive, but sometimes it is too receptive and does not pick up your voice very well. This could be the position of the microphone which is on play/volume controls that usually hangs below your next. But, I tried to hold it in front of my mouth and speak clearly and according to some callers on the other end, my voice sounds far away and very soft. So as a hands-free set it doesn't always work well. Probably about 405 of the time I have to unplug the earphones and speak normally.
The Comfort of the S4i is decent but users with big ear holes will find the in-ear buds not really suitable as they don't really fit. This has caused me to resort to aftermarket foam tips from Comply. This has produces a better seal for me and it is much more comfortable. The ear-buds are very light and you do not really feel it and the cord is well made and does not produce the amplified rustling noise that some other earphones produce.
The Build Quality of the S4i is dependant on when it was made. I know this because i bought my first pair a year and a half ago about a year into use, the rubber covers joining the cable to the ear buds had started to split and loosen and the cable between the jack has started to wear due to the cable rubbing against the hard rubber jack edge causing the left ear-bud to stop working. But Klispch Customer Service was excellent and they said that they have a deal with Amazon and they will replace the earphones with a new pair asap. Have now used the new pair for 6 months and I am very happy with them as they have fixed the problems with the older version. The join between the ear-buds and cable is firmer and looks more durable and the join between the jack and the cable is now a soft flexible rubber that should prevent any cable wear.
Overall I am happy with these earphones because there are not many that can be found to produce good sound and work well with the iPhone for the price. Also, their customer service is very good and I will likely buy from Klipsch again due to this fact.
Summary: I would definitely recommend this earphones to anyone. A great buy at a great price.
