Headphone Design

Headphone Type

Headphone type refers to the construction of the headphones.

Around the Ear means that the headphones wrap around the ear to provide a secure fit. This is most often seen in active and sports headphones.

Around the Neck means that the headphones wrap around the neck. This is also seen in active and sports headphones.

Earbuds means that the right and left sides of the headphones are separated and will fit securely into the ear. These are small, compact, and user friendly.

Over the Head headphones mean that the right and left speakers are connected with a support that goes over the head and rests on top. This is the typical headphone type.

Earbuds
Earpiece Design

This is the design of the earpieces on the headphones. Some headphones go inside the ear, while others rest on the outside of the ear. This helps you know exactly what type of headphones you will be receiving.

In-Ear: The ear buds go into the ear. Most often, the right and left ear buds are two separate pieces.

Enclosed-Ear: Usually are found on the larger headphones. They rest on top of the ear and have padding for comfort, as well as enclosing the ear to the speaker. This type of headphone helps to filter out surrounding noise.

On-Ear: This type of headphone involves the speaker sitting gently on the ear without going in the ear or sealing it off.

In-Ear
Specifically For
Some headphones can use an IR Transmitter in your vehicle, while some can be plugged into your media device and be used on the go or at home.
Home/Portable

Acoustic Principle
The basic design of the headphones. There are 3 different types: Open: Have ports that allow air through the back of the diaphragms, enabling the headphones to sound like the music is coming from an outside source. Closed: Completely sealed and have no air passing through the diaphragms. Sounds like you are in a closed off room. Semi-open: Have slots or ports in the back of the cup and are partially open. This allows for a mixed sound between an open and closed headphone.

General Features

Noise-Canceling
Noise Reduction technology removes unwanted noise from a signal. Background or ambient noise can be removed to produce clearer speech and enhanced hearing. Typically these Active Noise Canceling (ANC) headphones are powered and use batteries to activate the noise canceling technology. Also referred to as Noise Reduction or Noise Cancellation.
No
Headphone Connection
This is how the headphones connect to the audio source.

Corded means that the headphones use a cord to transfer the audio signal.

Wireless means that the audio signal is transmitted wirelessly to the headphones.

Corded
1/4" Stereo Jack Adapter
Some headphones will come with a 1/4" stereo jack adapter to connect the usual 3.5mm jack to a 1/4" stereo plug.

1/4" Stereo jack is a larger audio jack that select electronics have.

No
Volume Adjustment
Volume Adjustment means that the headphone (independent of the source) can adjust the playback volume. Many headphones and ear buds have in-line volume control, which allows adjusting the audible volume from a switch on the headphones cord. Other headphones have a volume knob on the headphone can.
No
Built-In Microphone
This means that the headphones or earbuds have a built-in microphone. This can be a microphone on the cord, built into the headphone, or even a boom microphone. These mics can be used for music devices like iPods, for Smartphones to make and receive calls, or for gaming purposes.
No
Frequency Response
The range of frequencies the speaker will reproduce (lowest frequency to the highest). Bigger is better, meaning the wider the range, the better. The optimal range is 20 - 20,000 Hz (which is the range of human hearing).
10 - 19,000 Hz
Sensitivity
An efficiency or sensitivity rating tells you how effectively a speaker converts power into sound. The higher the number, the more efficient the speaker and the louder it will play with the same input power. An efficient speaker helps you maximize your available power. Most sensitivity ratings measure the speaker's output with 1 watt of input, 1 meter from the speaker. Some speakers' sensitivity is measured with 2.83 volts of input, instead of 1 watt.
 
Efficiency (1w/1m) is not an accurate indicator of a subwoofer's output capability and should not be used as a comparison to other speakers or subwoofers to determine which one is "louder".
110 dB
Driver Size
This refers to the diameter of the driver (speaker) on each side of the headphone.
Driver Type
The physical design of the driver in the headphones.
Impedance
The opposition to electric current, a higher impedance means a higher electrical resistance. This is measured in ohms.
18 ohms
Primary Color
This is the main color of the item.

Very high quality

May 1, 2011

These earbuds are the best quality I have ever had. They have deep lows and a percise mid range and highs. I have previously owned Bose earbuds ($100) and Shure earbuds (a little over $100) and have listened to Ultimate Ears which were over a hundred. These are by far the best out of all of them. Not much of a competition. Its incredible sound for really an incredible price. If you really want bang for your buck and are an audiophile, get these and you will never regret it.

AMAZING Earbuds

April 30, 2011

Best ear buds I've EVER heard. Heard multiple "high-end" headphones and none compare to the quality of these. Bass is absolutely destructive (with an amp of course), treble is screaming clear. The mids are very trumpet-like and accurate. The headphones themselves are extremely lightweight, strong, and high-quality. They look great and come with different size ear buds. The medium work best with my ears and creates the best seal. With this in (with no music), you'll be isolated in your own quiet world. Broke a pair by slamming them in the car door and driving down the road with them dangling out my door (woops ;]) and IMMEDIATELY dished out the money for another pair,

Very good if you are someone who prefers ear buds...

February 14, 2013

I got these after reading glowing reviews online and they are all I've been told. Having said that, I don't know if it's just me but I find ear buds in general to be fairly uncomfortable with a propensity to slip out my ears slowly. I am critical of the thin cord which needs to be treated with kid gloves. But Klipsch do provide a nice metal case that protects them and looks great. Nevertheless, the S4s are more comfortable than any others I've used and sound is crisp, especially mids and highs.

Best Ear buds

Awesome sound

October 5, 2012

These headphones (while a bit pricey) are worth the money for sure. The sound quality is fantastic, and they stand up to a good bit of abuse. I've had them for about a year now, and the left headphone has started to come and go unfortunately. They come with a warranty, however, so take advantage of it!

Used mainly for commuting and they cut off the ambient noise a lot so you can listen soft music comfortably. The bass is great for such small headphones.

Blocks outside noise

June 1, 2012

These headphone definitely block outside noise and are comfortable to wear and have good sound quality. The only thing I do not like is when I'm wearing them while exercising any movement of the cord is amplified in the ear buds. For that reason alone I would not likely spend the money to purchase this item again.

These buds are better than the positive reviews I read prior to purchase. They sound almost as good as my Bose headphones. I use them while snowboarding and they are plenty rugged.

I would recommend this product because for the price the earbuds are pretty good quality. It comes in a really cool case with different sized and shaped ear tips so you are able to get a good fit. I think this is a good balance of a really good product for the price. I did have to speak to customer service and they were excellent.

Klipsch Image S4

May 28, 2012

These earphones are an excellent value. I obtained these earphones which work with a wide range of music in clear highs, middles and lows, with no distortion or buzz. I use them frequently when exercizing. I can crank up the music and tune out the world. They are so good, that sometimes I worry about my eardrums. That is when I turn the music down. They are well made, and durable. I would buy another set if the need arose. If you are still using the earbuds that came with your ipod, you are missing out on a alot of musical enjoyment.
