Incredible sound you want, blocks what you don't

Pros:Best audio reproduction/noise isolation of any earbud I have ever tried.

Cons:Very thin, flimsy cables.  I doubt that it will be durable enough for my commute.

The Bottom Line: Take the time to get the proper fit and these earbuds will excel.  Hope that they survive the daily commute.  Don't expect to run/exercise with this product.


I got the Klipsch S4 headphones about a month ago and wanted to put them through the daily metro train ride to work before I reviewed them.  I found that they are tremendous in blocking outside/unwanted noise and have incredible sound response from solid bass through crisp highs.  It just took some work to get to love these headphones.

I opened the package, plugged them into my iPod, and was totally underwhelmed.  The bass was very weak and overall sound was terrible.  I played with the different ear inserts and had an "aha" moment when I switched to the large inserts (they ship with the medium installed).  The sound suddenly was incredible and the noise isolation was apparent.  So, I'd solved the problem by getting the proper fit but they were still uncomfortable in my ears and noise still leaked in.

When I switched and wore the Left earphone in the Right ear, and vice versa, I had a second "aha" moment.  Noise isolation was infinitely better and the sound quality jumped.  I don't know if the phones are marked improperly, but wearing them backwards was the solution.  I now absolutely love these earbuds.

I'm in love with these earbuds.  Be sure to play with the ear inserts and dare to wear them backwards.
