Not bad for the price

Pros: Bass, in-line mic, OK SQ

Cons: Harsh treble, sound compressed, poor cable

These are solid IEM's. I've owned mine for about 2 years and they're still working. They're showing serious wear, but still working. They are decent at low volumes but the bright mid-range and grainy, sharp treble is tough to listen to a lot of music through. The newer versions of the S4 seem to be an improvement. The bass is decent, but lacks extension and is a bit wild. Definitely bleeding into the mid-range. The cable is fine, but it is permanently "coiled." This is very obnoxious. However, they've seen a stupid amount of abuse and the cable is still holding together fine. This is very impressive. The tips fall off far too easily but they do work well for me.

Pros: great sound

Cons: bad design

these are great sounding earbuds, they feel comfortable and look pretty good. the one huge problem with these are that every time the cable touches your cloths you get this thudding sound go straight into your ears, very disappointing . i found this site useful if you ned to know more, i wish i had read it before i bought them www.futuredigital.co/klipsch-promedia-earbuds

Great Value

Pros: Build Quality, Built in Mic, Y-Adapter for PC

Cons: Stock tips are too soft, could not get a good seal;

Coming from a Sony MDR-V6 for my main set CAN, I'm very use to a flatter frequency response and far less bass. The large amount of bass can overpower the main track in some my electronic tracks however it is just strong enough in most of music making it far more enjoyable. This was mainly observable on my desktop PC with a Creative X-Fi, but on my Samsung Galaxy S, the extra bass was just enough to push the weak default source to a far more enjoyable level. It was a great improvement over the stock oem "premium" headphones which isn't saying much here on head-fi although there were better than the your typical run of the mill headsets. Still for $40 (I got them on sale at my local B&...

Competent but not spectacular sound – still a decent value in the "always-at-hand headset" category.

Pros: Good fit with nice quality stock tips, fairly compact, soft cables seem to do a decent job with microphonics

Cons: Bass-heavy, a bit lacking in the upper ranges, soft cables don't feel very snag resistant.

Compared to the siblings: This is the Promedia version of Klipsch Image S4 (and their S4i iPhone counterpart). Besides the gamer-friendly red and black coloring they also differ from the S4i by having a single button mic rather than the 3-button Apple remote. They also come with a Y-adapter that splits the TRRS plug into separate plugs for PC headphone and mic connectors. Finally there's also the standard three sizes of single flange tips, one set of small dual flanges, a shirt clip and a zippered pouch to hold it all.   Design and build: Overall design and build quality is fairly good. The housings feel solid and have a nice finish, and the tips sit firmly on the nozzles....
