Klipsch Image S4? - Page 8

post #106 of 623
If you mean sleeping sitting up in a chair, which I have done with the S4s during one of these late night Phillies playoff games, then yes, they work.

If you mean sleeping with your head/ear against the pillow, they stick out too far. I use the UM3X when I need to rest my head against a pillow.

I guess I can't imagine laying on my side with anything in my ear.

That's a nice advantage of the UM3X design. You can do just that, no problem.

I lie down on the couch with them on. When I rest my head on either side, it will add pressure to my ear and make them very uncomfortable. I imagine they would be good for sleeping only if your rest the back of your head on the pillow and you don't move whatsoever while sleeping. Otherwise, you'll wake up with sore ears.

I can easily fall asleep with them in, lying on my back. Rolling over on my side is a signal to remove them and put the Zune on the night stand. I do this automatically now. I have slept with them in, almost all night, several times.

I guess it depends if you wear them hanging down, or with the cable up over your ears. I find they sit much more flush with my ears if I have them cable over... Sometimes the right earpiece tends to back out a bit though and break seal this way, and it's not quite as secure a fit as just hanging down. No difference in sound either way....

Your right cn11 sometimes i wear them up and over my ear and sometimes i just wear them regularly. I must have a deformed left ear because i have always have problems getting earbuds/iems to stay in that ear. But when i wear the cords over my ears i have no problem having it stay in my left ear.

But i dont like sleeping with anything attached to me so to speak. I don't even wear socks so IEMs are kinda out of the question

Hope you won't be disappointed. This might help. Last night, I listened the modded Amp3 I have in my possession (thinking about buying it) with the S4s (UM56 tips) and I was amazed at the SQ coming through these $79 phones. As you know from the Amp3 thread, these are the only IEMs that don't hiss from the ones I own, so they are really important on that front (Amp3) alone. Since you own the Amp3, I thought I would mention it.

Seems the S4s and Amp3 were made for each other, but only after "extended play time," if you catch my drift.
I surely catch your drift, so I'll give the them the appropriate play time while I watch Basil, Sybil and Manuel taking care of their Torquay homestead.
Yes, AMP3 has a unique sound quality, I can surely agree on this, but particular when it's suited up up with an IEM, headphone or whatever we place around or in our ears. What about the shure flex tips compared to the Um56 tips, what's your input on this? I'm thinking value wise..

Shure Flex tips are excellent too. Just a more shallow insertion than the customs, of course. You may also just like the OEM gels. I went from gels to modded flanges (shures, 3 to 2 flanges, stalk trimmed) to soft flex mediums. Now, the UM56s are mainly what I use. But for ease of use, I seem stuck on the soft flex tips.

Thanks for the answers guys. I use (well try to) my ER6s when lying on my side and they hurt quite a bit so I was looking for IEMs that I could sleep with. The only way I can sleep with them on my side is if I put my hand between my cheek and the pillow to lift my head off the pillow. I'll have a look at the UM3Xs.

Edit : Oh ha, $400 isn't quite what I had in mind :P
post #116 of 623
I have UM2s and sleep with them all the time. Sound is great (IMHO), comfort is also great and they fit flush, so, they are good for sleeping.
post #117 of 623
Unfortunately my budget is more the ~$100 region, hence my interest in the S4s :|
But thanks for the suggestion.

figured this would be another good place to ask. how would these compare to the Denon AH-C551K in the bass department? i first didn't like the bass on the c55's but i've grown to like them. problem is, they break quickly..i'm going on my 3rd pair so it's time for something new.

The C551K will have more bass presence, but the bass will be a little boomier and not as punchy as the S4. The S4 have very good bass with good impact, but they still do not match the punchiness and quality of the bass on the IE7.

Thanks for the quick reply.
