If anyone is still on the fence with these, then you can also look into SoundMagic earbuds. Very good value for the money but not the best build quality.

i bought the klipsch s4i i was not too impressed. the quality of the wires is comparable to one from the dollar store. i also managed to get one of the changeable earplugs stuck in my ear at the gym- wtf was my first reaction. the next week i lost one of the ear plugs- errr. i contacted klipsch via email and they sent me a whole new set.

i really couldn't see a big different in sound quality compared to other earbuds ive bought. i wouldn't buy another set even if they were 99 cents.

i prefer shure ear buds. the quality is top notch and the retail price is a lot cheaper. wires are thick, and i have never had a problem with the earplugs coming out.

klipsch should stick to floor standing speakers.

Anyone know any technical specs on these headphones? Impedance, sensitivity, frequency response?
Specs pulled from a old Woot sale. These are a step down from the s3 models as the packaging is bare bones and all you get are a couple tips, no case included. Haven't had a listen to them but probably average performance. All these got going is the oval comfort fit and a use them to abuse them nature.

Judging that they list patent numbers as a feature for these buds I don't think they will stand out in anyway. All people can hope for is these don't crap out after a few months of use.

Design: In-ear, Dynamic Moving Coil Micro Speaker
Driver diameter: 5.8mm
Drive Components: Full Range KG 15
Finish: Black
Frequency Response: 12Hz - 18kHz
Impedance: 18 ohms
Input Connection: 3.5mm
Noise Isolation: -18
Sensitivity: 106dB
Cord Length: Approx 50"

Still brings upon the question if I should get this, or get the s3/s4 people are talking about above.. or am I missing something? :C
Dude, anything anyone is posting about earphones will be better than the stock buds that came with your phone. I have several different pairs, I workout with Creative Aurvana in ear but they don't sell those anymore. I have some Soul by Ludacris SL99's that I got at Staples on clearance and used an Office Depot coupon pursuant to the instructions in an earlier post on this site. The SL99's are a little too bright/shrill and i'll probably end up giving them away sooner than later. I have a set of Sennheiser IE8 that I use on long distance flights/trips but those I treat like royalty. Some people have disparaged the Klipsch earphones and they're right, the clarity is just ok and on the S3/4 the bass is muddy and slightly overboosted. But they will still be better than what you've been using. Last I checked, there were some Klipsch X10's on sale on Amazon for 89.00 and a buddy of mine picked those up...ok I just checked, here they are Klipsch X10 [amazon.com]. For that price they are awesome and don't have the issues the lesser models have. If your budget allows, move up.

Choose either the FX40's or FX101's.

If you like deep/extreme bass, go for the FX101's.
If you like everything about the FX101's but don't want mind-numbing bass, go for the FX40's. The FX40's have exceptional highs/mids/lows.

Same price/cheaper than the Klipsch S1's.

The JVC's shit on the S4's, let alone the S1's.

Don't believe me, go check out head-fi.org and see what people say.

I feel like Klipsch has become the new Beats. Anything with a Klipsch name and people will go gaga over it.

There are much better options out there folks.
ordered 1 of each, I hope these dont disappoint. Big Grin

Before saying the S4 has no bass:

1. Do you have a perfect seal with the eartips? Are the earphones in your ear all the way? Klipsch eartips don't fit my ears, so I have to use aftermarket eartips for a perfect fit especially to hear strong bass out of the S4.

2. Did you listen to the S4s for many hours to break them in?

3. Are you using an iPod/iPhone as a sound source? The newer models do NOT output strong bass, and it's too easy to blame your earphones. Apple toned down the bass in the EQ and hardware chip in order to save battery power because apparently, more bass means poorer battery life when marketing a product. If you don't believe me, google up Wolfson audio chip. It generates more bass and only the older iPod models have it. My Klipsch S4 with the original iPod Nano had so much bass when playing Trance/Electronic dance music, I sometimes had to turn it down.

Also, before you recommend JVC as an alternative, I'm 100% positive it doesn't have the sound detail and quality of the Klipsch. I hear sound frequencies on Klipsch I've never heard before on other brand names, and for me, that's a fact. I've bought Senheiser CX200 and the sound is dull compared to the Klipsch S4 (although Senheisser fit and sound isolation were better, but you can say the Senheisser eartips are better, not the speaker).

Klipsch have gone from highend to bargain brand since the explosion of personal media devices. Those who know better know Klipsch is still riding on the premium brand momentum it built up over the last 60 years. But in my eyes the brand is tainted and since Voxx bought them out it's just a race to the bottom in terms of quality.

Better buds can be had in this price segment, it just requires a little research.

1) Yeah, the eartips are all the way in. I've used all the sizes. I've tried the Shure Olives as well.
2) Break in? I used my friend's "burned-in" S4's and I still prefer my cheapo "straight out of the box" FX101/FX40's.
3) I'm using a Wolfson dac (Galaxy S3) for all of my listening needs and I still prefer the FX101/FX40.

JVC doesn't have the sound detail and quality of Klipsch?

Are you kidding me? JVC is one of the most reputable companies (and have been around for a very long time) when it comes to audio.

Your Klipsch S4 is so great that there is a lot of problems with the earpieces dying out. Don't believe me? Just google it.

Don't tell me the S4 is a quality reliable IEM because there are tons of problems with it.

Klipsch and Sennheiser. Yes, the name brands of IEM's. They make high-end stuff that sounds great. But they produce alot of crap that people go crazy over just because the label says "Klipsch" or "Sennheiser".

Have you even tried these other brands? Somehow, I doubt you have.

Sound detail of the Klipsch?

I'll give you a handful of IEM's that destroy the Klipsch S4 at the price range.

So what do the S4's retail at. Well, the retail price is around $80. But the going price for the S4's are around $30-60? Give or take?

1) JVC FX101
2) JVC FX40
3) Vsonic VC02
4) Vsonic GR02 Bass edition
5) Sony MH1C
6) JVC FX3X
7) Brainwavz R1

Etc., Etc., Etc. The list goes on.

The above IEM's are all under $40.

No one is saying the S4's are garbage. They're not. They're pretty good.

But at the price range, there are much better alternatives.

Might pick up a pair so I can stop using my X1 at the gym. The S4 weren't amazing but I would guess these share the good fit of those with better than typical earbud sq

Well, there are people on head-fi who say the JVCs are all hype and that the highs are harsh and sibilant on ones like the FX40 and FX101.
And some people like the $8-$15 Philips 3580/3590 more than either of those.
And some people like the Mono 8320 over the 3580.
And some people like some other $6 ones over the 8320.

Though at least two on your list, the Brainwavz and the MH1C tend to be very highly recommended.
