A honest IEM for listening without any analitical purpose. The sound is great, which is perfected by the amazing isolation and comfort, turning the sound even more enjoyable. It´s also very easy to fit in and take out. I live close to a bar and with this fone and some white noise I hear nothing. Just fall asleep. I heard someone saying the sound is thin and the volume is low. I don´t know.. I use this fone with a Sansa Clip+ and the sound is full e pretty high. I have also a Grado SR225 and a Yuin PK3. but the S3's skills make It more usable daily.

For those times, I want normal tips with normal insertion,...(read more)

I did some looking around in Best Buy and online and decided I wanted the Klipsch Image One II headphones. When I went to the store, they were out of stock and I saw these farther down the aisle. They're almost a third of the price, and made by the same company; I have only heard good things about their product, so I figured I'd give these a try. I was a little tentative, though, because the last in-ears I bought did not stay in no matter what size tip I tried.... Anyway, I've been using the S3M exclusively for weeks now and I'm happy with my purchase. They are comfortable and...(read more)
