Klipsch preps budget Image S2, S4 in-ears

03/11, 12:20pm

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.

Klipsch rolls Image X5 audiophile earbuds

06/04, 12:15pm

Klipsch Image X5

Klipsch is expanding its young earbud group with an update to the IMAGE line. The silver-hued X5 is meant to drop the price of the in-canal earphones by allowing a slightly thicker design: the housing is about 2mm (0.08in) wider but allows for considerably less expensive components without sacrificing audio quality. The American audio equipment maker also notes a shift in the balance of the sound: where the original (now called the X10) still has Klipsch's longstanding emphasis on bass, the X5 is more balanced with purportedly stronger treble and more noticeable vocals.
