Thread: [Review] Klipsch Image S4 Headphones

  1. #21
    And the successor to the S4I is now the Klipsch Reference S4I, it makes the best earphones sound even better. It's currently priced at $119.00 and it looks pricier with its copper accents.

    Definitely a fan of lossless compression, and to experience the high-fidelity sound lossy files allow high-end earbuds are a must. I've always wanted to invest in a pair of Ultimate Ears, and have even dreamed of getting custom-molded buds, talk about true sound isolation. But, $1,200 is a ton of money drop on buds no matter who you are. But, the TripleFi 10 look very tempting right now.

    How many of you actually have lossless quality audio files on your iPod or iPhone as opposed to compressed mp3s?

    I'd pay that price if I had spent the time ensuring my whole music library was at the highest quality feasible, and there was a recognisable difference between those and my sennheisers.

    Without a doubt, the stock headphones are extremely poor quality, designed for somebody with massive ear holes who doesn't care about quality.

    Any other in ear headphone that simply fits in your ear properly would be a great improvement!
    I don't use lossless at all. Just about any pair of headphones will provide a notable difference over the standard apple ones. I keep the apples as an "emergency" pair, but one does not need to use lossless to be able to enjoy a better pair of headphones.

    This is like buying a Nakamichi or Onkyo receiver and then buying $20 Kraco truck speakers to go with it. The speakers are what you actually hear with and as such probably deserve more attention and finance than the player. I couldn't think of a more misguided or ignorant mindset about this particular issue.

    ...And since when is $79 expensive for a set of decent headphones (a category within which the ones that come with the phone do not fit)- I mean the phone retails for like 800 bones without a subsidized contract. iPod Touch isn't what I would call cheap (relative to whining about $79). Perspective people, perspective....

    I used to have these... loved them a lot until I lost them. I've since picked up a pair of sennheiser in-ear buds that sound just as good (or better) for $50.

    I've not listened to these but I know someone who owns them and he rates them highly. I have the Sennehieser MM70i which are on par with these and they sound amazing - they cost me £69.99. I was tempted to buy the Klipsch X10i but they were £240 when I was looking to buy. They're down to ~£160 now so may be tempted one day.

    I don't have all of my music collection as lossless AAC, but most are 320kbps mp3 or m4a. A cheap £10 would sound better than the crap apple include. Apple go so far with style and quality, yet they skimp so much on headphones.
