Our take on the Klipsch Image S4i Rugged by Crutchfield's David Brown
You go outside when it rains, so why shouldn't your headphones?
Portable headphones are portable for a reason: they're meant to be taken out in the elements, not left at home or tucked away in your bag. The Klipsch Image S4i Rugged in-ear headphones are built tough, giving you great sound anywhere you go. These all-weather earbuds are moisture resistant, letting you put them to the test indoors and out, no matter the conditions.
Your music will sound clear and full whether you're grinding through a workout in the gym, on the trail or through the streets, thanks to the S4i Rugged's dual magnet micro speakers. Deep bass and detailed highs will accompany you everywhere, without tripping you up or slowing you down. The durable cable is tangle resistant, and the moisture-resistant remote gives you easy track and volume control of your iPhone or iPod while it stays out of harm's way. Take calls using the built-in directional microphone, or ignore them and just keep moving.
A secure fit for your mobile lifestyle
The S4i Rugged comes with four pairs of flexible oval-shaped ear tips, so you can find the perfect fit. This not only provides optimum sound quality, but also ensures that your headphones stay securely in your ears while you're racing up a bike trail or down a ski slope. Loop the cords around your ears and attach to your clothing with the included clip for even more security. The supplied travel case and cleaning cloth make sure these headphones are always ready for action whenever you are.
Great sound quality. comfortable in ears. surprised that it is discontinued.

Rugged Design: The Klipsch Image S4i Rugged in-ear headphones are extremely durable and are perfect for the active outdoor lifestyle. Designed to live with the elements, these in-ear headphones are moisture tested and the in-line remote is rubberized to offer weather resistance for outdoor activities.
Note: Available in 4 colors (yellow, orange, blue, and red).
Realistic Sound: The Image S4i Rugged in-ear headphones 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 and deep bass.
Noise Isolating Ear-Tips: The Image S4i Rugged headphones features angled housings for proper in-ear alignment. The Klipsch Image S4i Rugged '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 four different sizes of washable ear-tips; small, medium, and large single-flange ear-tips, plus a pair of dual-flange ear-tips.
X-Large 3-Button Mic and Remote System: Thanks to its advanced 3-button mic and remote system, the Image S4i Rugged in-ear headphones offer control of your Apple iPod, iPhone, or iPad. The built-in, x-large 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). 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. The Klipsch Image S4i Rugged headphones are compatible with the following Apple iPod, iPhone, and iPad models (as of 8/16/2012).
|iPod Model||Generation||Tested Version||Audio Output||In-Line Remote||In-Line Mic|
|3.5mm Connector||Audio Playback||Playback Controls||Answer/End Call||Voice Control||Hands-Free Communication|
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 wait until a newer software update is available.
55" Headphone Cable: The Image S4i Rugged in-ear headphones features a durable 55" headphone cable with built-in strain relief. The headphone cable has an adjustable cable-slider to prevent tangling.
Gold-Plated 3.5mm Connector: The Klipsch in-ear headphones 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 in-ear headphones include a shirt-clip to keep the in-line mic close to your chest when speaking.
Carrying Case: The Klipsch S4i comes with a carrying case to protect the headphones during storage and transport.
