  • The Klipsch Image S4 earphones offer up sound quality on par with and better than sets that cost many times as much; they are a spectacular choice for anyone looking for new earbuds.


  • As ever the all important question is: "would I be willing to spend £60 of my own money on a pair of these earphones" and with the Klipsch Image S4s the answer is yes. Despite a few shortfalls, the S4s are definitely still worth their price tag.


  • A great set of 'phones for the cash but a step-up in sound quality is only a few quid round the corner


  • The Yurbuds sounds good enough with the proper EQ settings that I'm willing to overlook them - largely because these are the only earbuds I've owned that actually stay in place for me. In addition to using it for exercise, its light weight also makes it great alternative to larger full headphones when traveling by plane. Give it a shot if you want earbuds with a secure and comfortable fit.
