Are you looking to get the best sound you can with small pocket-able headphones?
If you're an iDevice user who wants to get better sound from that sound jack than Apple's stock headphones can offer, I think that you should try out these headphones
, the Klipsch Image S4 series. They come in at a hefty $79.99, but for in-ear headphones, the bass is pretty impressive, the sound isolation is great, and the comfort level is off the charts. It may be a pretty expensive investment, but after trying these, you'll never look back at your stock Apple headphones the same way again. The Klipsch Image S4 headphones have two versions, one has an inline remote and microphone and the other does not. I chose the buy the pair that did not have the inline remote and microphone.
When you open the box, you see a nice aluminum carrying case and numerous sizes of ear pieces. The stock ones that come on the headphones already usually cut it for most people. The silicon is so soft that you will barely know that they're in your ears. The Bass is so noticeable, but it isn't so brutal, that you can sit back and enjoy what you're listening to without getting sore ears after more than fifteen minutes. That is the effect that I have had with similar headphones such as the Skullcandy Titan series which I would not recommend at all because they have sound problems with the all-around iDevice lineup.
These headphones are small, and they can reach some pretty impressive lows. Of course, you won't get studio quality bass in something that discrete, however you will be able to mellowly enjoy what you're hearing because you can hear those low frequencies just well enough to... well audiophiles know exactly where I'm getting at. Unless you buy big and bulky headphones that literally overlap your whole head, you won't get true mobile bass. But the Klipsch Image S4 takes the modern day mobile headphones and meets those heavy bass bulky headphones at an intersection. The quality is there, the noise isolation is excellent, and you will feel like you bought a pair of headphones that you can listen to your music with.
The wiring isn't tangle-prone which means that you can bunch it into your pocket with confidence. Like all wires, it can tangle, but it's not nearly as bad as how tangled the stock Apple headphones can get if you bunch them up in your pocket. Comparing these headphones to a similar pair - the Apple in-ear headphones, you will notice that the Klipsch headphones bring a more illuminant sound. The Apple in-ear headphones simply don't have any boom in the bass at all - just a tick.
If you're looking for good headphones for your iPhone, iPad, or iPod, I recommend the Klipsch Image S4 (or Klipsch Image S4i if you want the inline remote and microphone). What do you think about these headphones - have you ever tried them? Share in the comments.
