Klipsch has build a strong name for themselves in the in-ear heaphone market over the years by delivering high quality sound at value for money prices, such as with the Klipsch Image S4i in-ear headphones.
Described by the manufacturer as the “Eistein of the headphone world” the Klipsch Image S4i comes with on-cable mic and control, making it a very iPhone friendly headphone, and the soft flexible ear-tips to ensure comfort, which is very important from a pair of in-ear headphones that potentially could see a lot of usage over time.
Another very important factor for in-ear headphones with support for making/taking calls is sound isolation. We are surrounded by sound pretty much everywhere we go these days, so having headphones that blocks out unwanted sound, making it easier to hear the person on the other end of the call, or the music you are listening to, is very important. Even the mic has been designed for echo cancellation so the person on the other end of the call will hear you nice and clear to.
When it comes to sound the Klipsch Image S4i have done well enough to make the Top 5 in the Best Heapdhones list at Stuff.tv (it is actually the S4 model that does not include the mic and control that is on the list), and are also highly regarded by industry experts at WhatHiFi. Consumer feedback on Amazon UK is also very positive when it comes to the performance of the in-ear headphones. I have not yet had the chance to spend some quality time with the Klipsch Image S4i but will be back with independent rating as soon as possible.
The Klipsch Image S4i in-ear headphones are available from amongst other the following UK retailers.
