Our take on the Klipsch Image S4i by Crutchfield's Kristen Schaub
Klipsch's Image S4i earbuds are a dramatic sound quality upgrade for your iPhone, iPod, or iPad or any portable music player. These convenient in-ear headphones offer full control of the music loaded on your favorite Apple device. (See Hands-on Research for full compatibility info.) The tiny wide-range speakers in each earbud deliver dynamic detail and punchy bass. Your music will sound clear and natural, whether you're rocking out to a killer guitar riff or relaxing to a smooth jazz beat.
Control your iPhone, iPod, or iPad with ease
A three-button remote control built into the cord lets you answer and end calls, control the volume of your calls or music, and pause, play, or skip through your songs. It also has a 360° microphone with echo cancellation, so your voice will come through clearly and you won't have to worry about any surrounding noises drowning you out.
Patented earbud design for super-comfortable listening
Klipsch's patented oval-shaped ear tips naturally fit the contours of your ear canals, providing better comfort and sound isolation than conventional circular-shaped ear tips. The soft ear gels also create a tight seal to help minimize outside noise, so you can enjoy your music at lower, safer volumes. Four sizes of ear tips are included to help ensure a good fit with your ears. The S4is also feature angled housings for proper in-ear alignment that reduces strain on your ear canal. A compact, crush-resistant aluminum case provides safe storage for your earbuds.
Sound great, strong bass response.

Overview: The Klipsch Image S4i in-ear headset offers premium sound, a comfortable fit, and an in-line 3-button microphone with music/phone control (select Apple products). The Image S4i features an in-line advanced 3-button mic and remote system for full music and/or voice control on select Apple products. The 360° mic yields high intelligible phone calls. Its patented oval ear-tips offer unbeatable comfort, superior noise isolation, and amazing bass response. The in-ear headset uses durable cables with built-in strain relief.
Premium Sound: The Image S4i in-ear headphones + mic deliver realistic sound through the use of a single, moving coil micro-driver (or mini-speaker) per channel. These drivers cover a wide frequency range (10Hz-19kHz) with dynamic detail.
3-Button Mic and Remote System: Thanks to its advanced 3-button mic and remote system, which Klipsch designed in conjunction with Apple, the Image S4i is the first third-party headset to offer full control of your iPhone or iPod touch. The built-in 3-button remote control lets you answer and end calls, turn the volume up and down, and control music playback (Play/Pause, Fast Forward/Rewind, Previous/Skip).
Note: Its also compatible with VOIP, Skype, iChat, and audio recording applications.
360° Mic Design: Unlike other headsets, the S4i positions its mic and remote at the cable yoke to create a more natural feel when answering calls and controlling music. The mic is a highly intelligible 360° design with echo cancellation, so you will be heard crystal clear and will not have to worry about the external noise around you.
Apple Compatibility Chart: The Klipsch Image S4i is compatible with the following Apple iPod, iPhone, and iPad models (as of 1/20/2012).
|iPod Model||Generation||Tested Version||Audio Output||In-Line Remote||In-Line Mic|

Note: Apple iPod/iPhone software updates may change functionality results. If you download a newer software version, you may need to reset your iPod/iPhone to regain functionality. If this doesn't work, you may need to revert to the older software version or wait until a newer software update is available.
Comfortable Fit: The Image S4i features angled housings for proper in-ear alignment. The Klipsch Image S4i's exclusive soft and flexible oval ear tips naturally fit the contours of your ear canals, providing comfortable long-term wear as well as producing a perfect acoustic seal. A good seal minimizes outside noise, also known as noise isolation (up to -16), and allows you to enjoy your music at lower, safer volumes. The Image S4i comes with three different sizes of washable single-flange ear tips (S/M/L) and one pair of dual-flange ear-tips.
51" Headphone Cable: The Image S4i in-ear headphones + mic features a durable 51" headphone cable with built-in strain relief. The headphone cable has an adjustable cable-slider to prevent tangling.
Gold-Plated Connector: The Klipsch in-ear headphones + mic features a gold-plated, straight, male 3.5mm connector, so it works with any portable device that features a standard 3.5mm headphone output.
Shirt-Clip: The S4i features a shirt-clip to keep the in-line mic close to your chest when speaking.
Carrying Pouch: The Image S4i comes with a cloth "snap-tite" carrying pouch to store the headphones when not in use.
