My Sennheiser cx-300 b's just broke and I need new earphones. I want to buy the Kplisch Image S4i but after reading some of the bad reviews i've become hesistant. Maybe the monster turbines? Any ideas ?

I love my S4i buds. Great bass without muddying the midrange and highs, awesome fit (your mileage may vary), excellent sound suppression, 2 year warranty, signature Klipsch sound, and very reasonable price. They sound much better than the Beats Tour at almost half the cost. The only bad thing is the wire is thin and gets tangled easily. Also, it's only an average phone headset; I can hear static while making calls.

I didnt really care for the built-in mic so I opted for s4 klipsch without it and tagged along with mw600 bluetooth mic piece for wireless usage (seperates your phone/player from the iem/earbuds).

Do you need the remote on the wire? or not? Also if durability is that important, then maybe spending a little bit more on the Shure SE215k ($94)

They have a detachable wire and great sound.

I don't really need the remote but it would be really convenient for the gym and The 60$ for the kplisch is already a stretch as it is.

Alright last question, is there gonna be a noticeable difference between it and the sennheiser cx-300b's that are worth an extra 30-40$?

Honestly, this depends on you. Just as one person's trash in another's treasure, you might find that the difference between the two is negligible. Or dramatic. Audio reproduction is very subjective. In general the Klipsch are well-regarded and generally folks believe the price is a good value for what you get, but the same can be said for the Sennheisers. The following might help:

The Klipsch are going to be bass-heavy, but with better defined midrange and high-frequency response. In general, they do a better job of reproducing mid- and upper-range frequencies, though you might need to turn the bass down, a bit.

Good luck,

Boz

I don't really know what those numbers mean in differences, but I'll just get them and see how it goes. Thanks.
