Klipsch Image S2 and S4

Klipsch on Wednesday updated its Image in-ear headphones with some of its first models outside of its normal high-end range. The Image S2 and S4 have the same oval ear tips as more expensive models but less complicated, moving coil drivers and a larger enclosure. Making the switch lets Klipsch lower the price while still providing roughly the same amount of comfort and ear isolation as more costly models. The S4 also adds a dual magnet motor that steps up the amount of damping and more closely replicates the attack rate of kick drums and similar bass without introducing distortion.

All of the earbuds work with portable audio devices and phones with 3.5mm input jacks. The S2 as the entry pair will come in a single black finish and should cost $49 when it arrives in July. Despite its advanced hardware, the S4 will come in April at $79 and will also have the option of a silver finish.
