i have the s4 image. its very comfortable. in my ears they do not isolate well enough compared to SE420. the s4 image well. i detect distortion at high levels not heard in the SE420. the SE420 seem a bit heavy handed base-wise in comparison but i prefer them due to overall clarity. get the s4 image to obtain 75% of what the SE420 provide at a much lower cost. worth it in my opinion. i use mine with my PC with a cheap KOSS volume switch.

Great In ears for the money but they have got too much bass.

the bass becomes much more pronounced in the S4 when the fit in my ears is tighter. the impact of the fit is very important in this it seems..

I still keep the S4 on the rare occasion that I can't use my Westone 4R. It's fine for getting in touch with your inner basshead, but the sibilance still bothers me. They've been purely relegated to a backup IEM.

It's really the eartips that cause the sibilance. Using the biflanges or any other kind of eartip that puts more space between the headphone and the eartip will greatly reduce sibilance. Highs might become a bit less detailed but it sounds a bit warmer that way.

What brand of tip would fit the s4's so that i could use bi-flange tips as i am really bothered by the sibilance.

Where did you send it to?

My trusty OG S4s failed on me a few months ago after over 5 years of service.  One of the channels lost most of its volume (I can still hear some audio at a very low volume, but it is mildly distorted).  Does this sound like something that I can fix (I have some soldering experience with larger electronics) or is it more likely that something else failed that won't be worth attempting a repair/replacement?

I'd love to hear this too. I worked on mine for several months, and finally got fed up and sold them. Tips do matter, but not sure any can go as far as S4 needs. If you have some comply foam sitting around, it is worth a try. But I did not like comply nearly as well as Klipsch tips for X11. (It is not a sibilance monster to the extent that S4 is.)

I'd recommend the S4 for everything but classical, and even that sounds good. At the very least, it excels at rock and electronica. It may also be the most comfortable IEM on the market.

Judge Buff,

which in ear headphone would you recommend for classical music, then? comfort also important.
