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.
Yes
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.
Yes
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

The S4A Just Doesn't Hold Up Therefore I Can't Recommend

November 11, 2013

This is a simple review to the point:

The Klipsch S4A are fine headphones...when they work. In the space of nine months I'm have had to return a set for the second time. The problem with both returns are for the same: the mic quits working then not long afterward one of the headphones goes out. Very frustrating. I can not, therefore, in good faith recommend the S4A. I wish I could. As I said before, I like them fine when they work. Alas, the quality of the construction just isn't there.

I will give kudos to the SE service dept for their help with the returns. They've been helpful and efficient every time I've needed them. Wish the headphones were as good.

Nice Headphones, Good Sound Isolation, Bad Mic Placement

August 19, 2013

I bought the Klipsch Image S4A to use with my HTC One V Android 4.0 phone. I was looking for lightweight, in-ear headphones with a microphone.

I am very happy with the headphones overall:

Comfortable ear plugs, pretty good sound isolation (not as good as noise-cancelling headphones), good sound quality, a cord that untangles easily, very lightweight. I am a bus and subway commuter, and the noise isolation is good -- I don't have to crank up the volume to 11 whlie on the subway.

My major ding is that the microphone on the cord is not well placed for good audio quality. I have to hold the microphone close to my mouth for others to hear me on the phone. Maybe it's not a knock on the product, but I don't find myself using the Android-specific phone controls on the cord -- I still control muting, stopping, etc. from my phone.

Klipsch SA4 Headset for Android

August 15, 2013

I bought these headphones to use with my Samsung Galaxy at the gym while running on the treadmill. I use them 4-5x a week and I have to say they have held up very, very well. I switched from Shure E3C, which are a slightly more expensive set around $129. But when I researched these, CNET had high recommendations as best for an Android. The reason I switched was because the Shure just were not holding up, The wires kept shorting or they would get wet from working out and perform. I switched to this cheaper model at $65 but these sound just as amazing if not better and the wire cable is thicker and sturdier with a nice fit. They come with a nice case too. I'm very pleased with my purchase and would definitely buy these again.

Great Headphones at a great Price!

January 14, 2013

These headphones are great and a good value too! Now that there is a version with the cords that do not tangle, I might upgrade to that version.

Awesome headphones!

January 13, 2013

These headphones are the best I have found for the price. They have great sound quality and they actually fit really well. They cancel out most of the ambient noise by using the shaped silicon thing. I actually bought the S4's initially then when I upgraded to an android phone I saw that these could control the android music player so I bought these too. The ability to skip tracks with the button on the cord is awesome. Although occasionally it can be difficult to get it to register a double click rather than single click but this normally fixes itself. It might just be the phone being a bit laggy.

Great set of buds!!

December 6, 2012

Got these for use in my Galaxy s3 and they sound awesome! Very comfortable, rich full bass, very clear sound. Only complaint could be that they could have used a more quality insulated wire, but doesn't hurt sound at all, just feel. Highly recommended!!!

Excellent quality & value

November 11, 2012

After reading many reviews and forums I decided to give these a go. I am a music producer so I am critical of sound quality. I am incredibly happy with them. They are exactly what I expected.
So happy to find a pair of ear buds of this quality that actually have the android remote built in. The Klipsch app is useless on my Galaxy SII (unless they've found a workaround recently) but I don't really care. I can still answer calls with the remote button, mute sound, or skip tracks (slow double-click).
Very clear and accurate sound. Quite the bargain for the price. Very happy.

Best buy for me

October 3, 2012

I researched for quite awhile before deciding on the Klipsch Image S4A ear buds and I was not disappointed. They fit snugly and comfortably in my ears and the sound is superb. A little more expensive but I got what I paid for.
