Amazing Comfort and Fit
Made just for you, the Image S2’s exclusive soft and flexible oval ear tips naturally fit the contours of your ear canals, providing comfortable long-term wear as well as producing a perfect acoustic seal. A good seal minimizes outside noise, also known as noise isolation, and allows you to enjoy your music at lower, safer volumes.
These headphones come with three different sizes of washable ear tips: small, medium and large single flange designs. So light and narrow, they are almost impossible to feel inside your ears.
At the heart of every Klipsch product is over 60 years of audio expertise beating strong. Our commitment to no-compromise performance has made us the preferred choice of top cinema operators, a leader in stereo and home theater sound and now a premium name in headphones.
The Image S2 delivers strikingly realistic sound through the use of a single, moving coil driver (or mini speaker) per channel. These drivers cover a wide frequency range with dynamic detail. From heart-pounding bass to spine-tingling guitar riffs, you won’t miss a beat.
Available in a beautiful piano black finish, the Image S2 makes quite a fashion statement. It carries a two-year warranty and works with the iPod, iPhone and other portable devices that feature a standard 3.5mm headphone jack. A cloth “Snap tite” carrying pouch is also included in the purchase.
How do I know if I have a good seal?
When no music is playing, your voice should sound louder and ambient noise should sound quieter, very similar to wearing a pair of ear plugs. Creating a tighter seal is simple. Insert the ear tip (while connected to the nozzle) into the ear canal, gently rotate it left and right and then slightly pull it back. This adjustment eliminates virtually all external noise so you can play your music at a lower volume, for a longer period of time, without experiencing ear fatigue.
Why am I not getting enough bass response?
It’s probably because you don’t have a good ear seal. Be sure to try out the various ear tip sizes. You may also want to try pulling the ear tip out slightly, as it may have collapsed.
Why are Image ear gels oval-shaped instead of round?
When Klipsch started studying three-dimensional ear impressions, it was discovered that nearly everyone has an oval-shaped ear canal. The company couldn’t believe that no one else had yet considered the anatomical shape of the ear canal when designing in-ear headphones. Aside from their comfort value, our oval ear tips load quickly and easily into the ear canals
as well as virtually disappear from view.
Top customer reviews
-By far the most comfortable in ears I've ever had. This was probably the number one factor in my buying them again. After the initial break-in period, I found that bass response was adequate, but not overwhelming. Mids were clear and the highs were defined without getting 'tingy'. All in all, if you're looking for a well balanced sounding set of in-ears, these are the best for this price. I'd even go so far as to say they give a fair challenge to in-ears twice the price.
-Sound isolation is almost to the point of sound cancellation. Being a college student, I study religiously. I found it's almost impossible to find quiet places, so having these in-ears are a blessing!
-The left ear and right ear cords are the same length. The last couple in-ears I've owned had that weird feature where the left ear cord is shorter than the right cord. I guess it kinda makes sense, you're supposed to loop the right earphone around the back of your neck yada yada - I just don't care for it. I like them the same length, so thank you Klipsch!
-The cord, connections, and earpieces [seem] a little on the flimsy side though they never broke, warped, or spontaneously combusted. Compared to the high-end in-ears I've used on stage, there is a noticeable difference in the quality of the cord and the construction of the earpieces. This is what dropped the product down a star.
-Not so much a con, but a warning. Due to the sound isolation, be careful using these in circumstances where it would be wise to have your hearing (i.e. biking, driving, gorgeous girl trying to get your attention)
-Cord noise. This is kind of normal and more of a con for pretty much all in-ears, but it's like the whole connecting two cans with a string - though I realize the current generation of kids may have absolutely no idea why people would do such a thing. Basically, friction with the cord causes noise to travel into the earpieces.
-I'm sure you've seen the $200+ in-ears and wondered,"Man, I'm sure those sound even better." I would say, not necessarily. Unless you're rocking full sound quality as in uncompressed, unadulterated, straight up tracks from the studio hard drive; the more expensive the headphones, the more unforgiving they are with lower quality tracks. So for a casual listener not insisting on 256kbps as a minimum threshold for sound quality, these are actually the best bet.
These are a great pair of balanced sounding in-ears and I would highly recommend them.
1) Headphones have a long "stem;" if you try walking with them, they quickly fall out of your ear due to the weight imbalance (increasing / decreasing earbud sizes didn't help).
2) The sound of your movement reverberates in the earbuds (you hear "thud" "thud" "thud" as you walk). Never been a problem with the S4is.
3) The L-shaped adapter does not form a firm connection with my iPhone. I find that I often have to push the adapter in or else I lose one of the sound channels.
4) High frequencies are very subdued and muddled.
Spend the extra money, and get the Klipsch S4s - you won't be disappointed.
So after some research, I bought these. And let me tell you, they are GREAT. So much more comfortable than any other earphones I've ever had. I can keep these in for eight hours and my ears don't hurt at all after. The sound quality is great although keep in mind that I'm not an audiophile or sound snob, so "great" might be relative. The noise-isolating part is also a plus, as it keeps me from being distracted by other people talking at work. I've had these for quite a while and they don't show any signs of wear at all yet. I just put them in the little provided bag and throw them in my purse at the end of the day. They get knocked around a bit in there, but there's been no problems at all.
All in all, I can't recommend these enough for wearing these for long stretches.
