I had a pair of AKG K370 (any one had these? what were your impression?) earphones which have been the best In ear earphones I ever had. They broke recently (they broke twice but I had them replaced the first time) and now they are out of warranty.
I kept checking reviews and found the Klipsch Image S4A II and I had high expectations about them. However I wonder if my pair is a counterfeir or if they are legitimate. They were bought on Amazon (sold by one of their sellers)
Everyone seems to be happy about them on Amazon and so many other places, but to me they are just too bassy, the bass is so well defined when there are not other higher frequencies. Otherwise it seems to get muddy, and besides that they have low highs.
The problem is I am not sure if I am so used to my old AKG, which seemed to sound bright and I think they were very well balanced and with a flat frequency response. The only problem I had with them is that they were a bit big and used to fall easily.
However I am disappointed with these Klipsch, is it me?. I see they are not so well received in forums like this one, but hey... they were 110€..
I must say they have really good things too, isolation is fantastic, the oval tips are just a great idea and they fit so perfect in my ears and they are so light. Seems they are perfect for workout and running too!
Would you recommend me to return them? If I do I don't know which ones to buy
I listen to a lot of styles: electronic dance music like house, elektro, hands up, hardstyle, also classical music, rock, soundtracks, chorus, rnb, dnb..
I'm also a music producer in my free time and I try to look for the most balanced flat response to avoid confussion.
I tested my earphones with a Galaxy S and Spotify premium mostly.
