Klipsch S4i Headphones, Built Tough
Klipsch needs no introduction to audio circles, but their latest creation, Image S4i Rugged Headphones are ready to battle the elements.
The Image S4i Rugged Headphones utilise tough rubber mouldings and an all-weather design to protect the legendary Klipsch sound from Mother Nature's bad side. Apparently “neither rain nor snow can stop the award winning acoustics and live music experience of the Image S4i Rugged headphones.”
An extra-large, 3-button remote lets you multi-task and precisely control iPhone calls and music whether you're wearing bulky gloves or are simply on the go. While the headphones' exterior is built tough, these in-ear headphones boast Klipsch's famous patented oval ear tips ensuring ultimate comfort, with zero sound leakage. Unlike circular-shaped ear tips that put stress on the pressure points inside the ear, Klipsch's patented oval ear tips naturally fit the contours of the ear canal, providing comfortable long-term wear. These ear tips additionally offer superior noise isolation (or passive noise-cancellation), blocking out almost all ambient noise, while still producing excellent bass.
“Whether rock climbing or dirt biking, there's no question one's music library enhances the experience,” said Chris Aiello, Klipsch USA product manager for headphones. “With the Image S4i Rugged, we intend to offer the most extreme outdoor enthusiasts the acclaimed audio they too deserve, while also allowing them elements of personal style and, most important, durability.”
Offering identical award-winning acoustics as the Image S4, the Image S4i Rugged is equipped with an 8.5mm dual magnet micro-speaker. This advanced audio technology covers a wide frequency range, while delivering dynamic detail for strikingly realistic sound reproductions. The Image S4i Rugged's audio works with virtually any device that has a standard 3.5mm headphone jack; however, the microphone and three-button remote support select Apple products.
Available in red, orange, yellow and blue, the Klipsch Image S4i Rugged Headphones retail for $149. Included with purchase are four different-sized oval ear tips, a nylon zipper case, clothing clip and two-year warranty.
Available now at specialty retailers and Harvey Norman.
