Klipsch rolls Image S4i earbuds with mic

updated 01:50 pm EDT, Tue July 21, 2009

Klipsch Image S4i

Klipsch at mid-day on Tuesday branched out into fully iPhone-aware headphones through the Image S4i. The pair adds an in-line remote and mic to the regular Image S4 and gives iPhone and iPod touch owners the option of calling or recording audio. Klipsch's remote is also Apple-sanctioned and supports all the functions of current iPods, including the third-generation iPod shuffle. In an attempt to improve on Apple's formula, the S4i's remote and mic are at a more natural position at the Y split in the earbud cord and have 360-degree reception with anti-echo processing to let users talk freely.

As with the original S4 models, the S4i set has unusual oval ear tips that are said to be more comfortable than circular tips and a design tested against long-term wear from cable strain or damaged wires. Klipsch officially prices its new in-ears at $100 and should have them available online as well as at Amazon and Apple sometime next month.
