Klipsch Image S4i Review
The Klipsch Image S4i is an In-Ear headphone. It has an advanced 3-button microphone with superior noise isolation, bass response and durable cables. The headphone naturally fits the shape of the ear canal. It also cancels echo which has always been a problem with the other headphones. With this headphone, outside noises are eliminated. Moreover, the mic makes your voice to be heard with ideal clarity. However, since the earphones can block a lot of sound, sometimes, it is hard to hear your own voice. The tendency is for you to shout or speak louder, not knowing that the person on the other line could hear your voice loud and clear. The sound of the S4i is like a live performance with bold bass, percussion and vocals. You can hear guitar riffs, base lines, hi-hats. But for the outside noises, you won’t hear any engine or human noise with an added volume. The headphone’s sound has a strong bass; it is best to use when your genre is rock or hip-hop music. There are instances, however, when there’s a need to position the earphone upside down for a better sound depending on the shape of the person’s ear. For the exterior of the S4i, it is basically good-looking. It looks pricey, too, except for the wire of the earphone which is thin and seems less sturdy. If this cord is bent, there would be problems with the sound. It needs to be straightened to make it work again. The buttons get easily broken. Earbuds look great but they easily fall out of the ears even with the use of different sizes of earbuds and they become very uncomfortable to use. The S4i needs careful handling to insure its longer service life. The earphone is lightweight; you would forget it’s in your ear. Its durability is not 100% guaranteed. Some complain about its less-than-a-month service life. Others had it for almost three months only. Nonetheless, there’s a two-year warranty for this earphone and it could be replaced. In summary, the Klipsch Image S4i delivers a great sound and has a very nice exterior. Although pricey, it sounds well compared to other earphones. It is a good value for money.
