"People who rate this under 4* are stupid"4.0 starson by AlexDena
Pros: Great sound and isolation
Cons: Materials and construction
Summary: Bottom-line is that these babies have a $400 sound quality on $10 dollar package, so the $100 price tag seems fair to me, you can find $100 better built ear buds (like Bose's) but they will not be nearly as great as the Klipsch S4i, the earbuds and its cord aren't meant to take them on outdoors sports because mainly because of 2 reasons 1. It will probably wear off really quick if it is constantly being in contact with rough surfaces like zippers or metals and 2.sound isolation is a security issue.
If you decide to take them to the gym they will probably wear out very soon..IF YOU DON'T AT LEAST WIPE THE SWEAT OFF... so don't be a pig and do it...
The way I see these earbuds, they are like buying a VW Passat, not cheap, not over the top expensive either, you get a good performance product that is as good as an audi but doesn't quite feel as finely built... but then again it is CHEAPER.
I hope I helped and if you didn't understand my analogy don't worry probably you are not alone..
