I have a similar model (not the Android specific ones) that I got last summer. I have to say that the wire being rubbed produces a lot of unwanted noise in the earbuds, worse than my iphone ones. They are, however, great for noise isolation. Just make sure you don't hit the cord because it comes through loud. Not so great for running, unfortunately.

38 woots and counting over 7+ years.

I bought a pair of these about a month back without the mic. They have great sound, great bass, and I absolutely love them... My only complaint is I wish that I waited for this because I spent $50 at the time over on Amazon =(... Now to figure out if I should spend the money on another pair =/

I've had Klipsch S5's for over 3 years now (they look exactly the same minus the on-line mic) and I love them. I used them 3 nights a week, rewinding them to put back into the case, and they're still 100%. No noticeable wear on the cord or earbuds. I also use my S5's with my android phone to listen to music while I mow the lawn. They seal awesome and I have no problem hearing what I'm playing over the lawnmower, without blasting them at a ridiculous volume. The response and sound quality is amazing on these. I can't speak at all on the mic quality but for $40 I would buy these just for the earbuds.

I doubt many will care as at this price it's still a good deal, but keep in mind that based on the images, this is the older revision of these headphones.

The 2012 and newer model is the S4A (II).

Exactly why these (and all the other Klipsch headphones recently) are on Woot. Very minor differences between these and the newer versions.

Sighhhh Why are they in-ear? A pair of in-ear ones came with my samsung and I think they're awful. Why would I want noise cancellation while I'm driving? I would pay a good amount for regular ear buds with a mic but cant find a good set anywhere.

That's right. One of the "Honest 200". Arggggg

According to this review, they work fine as single-button iPhone headphones, but I haven't tried them myself. I have tried the S4i (iPhone specific version) and they are really nice.

Been using these headphones (well basically non android equivalents of these headphones) for about 3 years. Not super high quality, one set stopped working in one ear but got the replaced. However for $40 they sound great, and I consider myself picky for audio. If you like clean balanced bass these are for you. If you like overpowering heavily distorted bass, these are not for you. The number one complaint I've seen is people having a hard time with the rubber ear buds and not fitting, fitting awkwardly, or falling out. The awkward fit makes many people think they have no bass and sound horrible. This leads to my number one recommendation; buy a $10 3-pack of foams tips and I promise you you'll never go back. Personally I went from feeling ripped off to feeling ecstatic once I replaced the tips.

I just bought these and might need to buy those tips. Where can I get those $10 foam tips that you speak of?

All I see are in excess of $20 or higher! *pondering*

So usually ear buds that come as an accessory aren't very good, usually okay at best. These also aren't noise canceling, that implies an active process where they send out sound waves that actually cancel out background sound waves. These are noise isolating, which is a fancy marketing term for being tight fitting ear buds which sounds like what you are looking for. So comparing these, ear buds that came with my iPhone, and bose quiet comforts over ears (all of which I own), these in my opinion isolate you from surrounding noise the best, for better or worse (co workers have to kick me to get my attention). Also I will put my in-ear Shure SE500s up against most anything in terms of sound quality, so I wouldn't knock ear buds just because they are "in ear".

So I have comply T-100 which I thought back in the day were $10 but I guess are $15 at amazon. I believe the $20 version (Tx-100) has a piece of cloth in the ear hole to keep out ear gunk. They eventually fall apart, but I've kept using them long past when they start looking shoddy, maybe 4-6 months? But I'm cheap and they were fine still, maybe a little less comfy. My biggest testament is that they don't fall out while biking, but I will warn you they do an even better job isolating sound so just be careful things don't sneak up on you (like cars).

I paid much more for these elsewhere. They are mediocre at best - the $9 iMetal buds I got on Woot! 3 years ago sound FAR better.

One more reason the Klipsch name means next to nothing anymore. They keep tacking it on junk like this.

Haha I was just gunna ask how the sound quality (bass) compares to the imetal buds.
The imetal buds blow the samsung ones out of the water. I'm looking for some with iMetal sound or better with a built in mic.

Great observation.. Thanks for the input.. I was thinking of buying these specifically for running.. The "cord/slap" noise drives me buggy..

I just paid $90 for these literally last week. They work fine in both android and Apple products. Sound quality is ok. I have the same problem with these as I do all IEMs - my ears must be bigger than normal because I don't get good isolation with any of the included silicone ear pieces. The inline controller is nice, it will work well while riding my motorcycle for changing tracks, if only I could get them to seal well enough to use.

These are a bit heavy toward bass. And the other user is wrong, these sound fine and is consistently Cnet's top pick for earbuds under $100. One thing you should remember though, is that bass obscures a lot of the lighter notes in other audio spectrums. Typically headphone companies jack up the bass to cover engineering inadequacies.

If you head over to Head-Fi forums, you'll find audiophiles bashing Klipsch s4 buds for being too bass heavy.

Another reason these aren't good for running is because the place where the buds connect to the cords are very flimsy. My S4s lasted all of 1 month in the gym because repeated bobbing loosened the cord on one side to cause it to lose audio. Treat these very gently.

I have been using the iPhone specific ones (S4i) now for three years, and they are great.

As another poster said, I too would recommend getting a set of Comply (T-100) foam tips. With the tips, you can wear them all day without ear fatigue, and they stay in.The foam tips also provide a much better seal in the ear which isolates noice better, and alows for great bass.
I wear them while riding my motorcycle all the time and they never loosen or fall out even in the wind with or without a helmet.

The one time one of the buds lost audio, I contacted Klipsch and had a new pair within a short while under warranty. Their customer service rocks and they deffinitely stand behind the products.

I personally own two sets of the S4i's, one i leave at the office.

I recently bought the ASUS tablet/keyboard dock combo here at Woot, and I am seriously thinking about getting one of these Android versions to use with it so I have music controls on the tab.

Has anyone used these in motorcycle helmets other than the poster with the big ears who can't get a tight fit? With all the wind noise in the helmet on the highway, you can't hear other cars anyway. All the others I've tried from the shelves at the box stores require the volume to be high on the highway to hear over the wind. So much that when you slow down they are blaring. There has got to be a better way.

These were developed when Klipsch was Klipsch, so they're not bad (not great - but not bad). Still made in the same plant in China with no changes since their intro. Since AudioVox has gutted the company, anything new is suspect. Their customer service is really poor, though, so don't count on any problems being resolved. This is based upon experience. At this price, I'm willing to take a chance.

I've used the Applie version of these with full-face helmets. If you get a good seal around your ear, you don't have to crank up the volume to be heard. They do, however, kill noise pretty well even at low speeds. I've heard horns with them on thru my helmet.

I have these (well the S4, not the S4A) and I love, love, love them. I own probably half a dozen mid-priced in-ear monitors but these are my faves. The sound is clean and crisp, with good but not overpowering bass.
