Back when you were little your mom told you not to stick things in your ears. You might want to rethink mom’s advice when it comes to Klipsch’s new Image S4 and S4i earbuds, which are right now making their way into retail outlets.
Klipsch’s new beauties come in either black or white, and feature dynamic moving coil micro speakers with a frequency response of 10Hz to 19kHz, a sensitivity of 110db SPL/mw, and a nominal impedance of 18 Ohms. Drive components consist of full range KG 25s. Each has a noise isolation rating of -16.
The difference between the two is the S4i’s inline microphone and three button remote, designed for smoother compatibility with the iPod and iPhone. The remote, according to Klipsch, is the first third-party remote to allow full control of an iPod or iPhone (but it is only fully compatible with the iPhone 3GS, 4th and 5th generation Nanos, 2nd generation Touches, and the iPod Classic).
While now available, there are some caveats. The black versions are widely available, including at Klipsch's own web site. The white version of the Image S4 will be exclusive to Vanns.com, while the white version of the Image S4i will only be available from Apple stores. The S4 has a retail price of $79.99, and the S4i has a retail price of $99.99.
