INDIANAPOLIS (August 14, 2012) — Klipsch, a leading global speaker manufacturer, today announces the launch of new Image™ S4®, Image™ S4i® and Image™ S4A® headphone models that serve as updated versions to the already in-market products. With their introduction, Klipsch delivers enhanced product features while maintaining the same acclaimed acoustics and unrivaled comfort.
The new Image S4, Image S4i and Image S4A present flat cabling for added strength and tangle resistance, a more streamlined shape and overall improvements in product durability.
Equipped with the patented oval ear tips for which Klipsch is known, each model allows for hours of comfortable, long-term wear. 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. These ear tips also offer superior noise isolation (or passive noise-cancellation), blocking out almost all ambient noise and providing excellent bass.
Each model produces the same award-winning sound signature through an 8.5 mm dual magnet micro-speaker. This technology covers a wide frequency range and delivers dynamic detail for the most strikingly realistic sound reproductions of music libraries.
The Image S4 is available in a piano black or pristine white finish and comes complete with four different-sized oval ear tips, a protective carrying case and two-year warranty. The in-ear headphone is compatible with any portable device that features a standard 3.5mm headphone jack. The updated Image S4 retails for $79.99 (U.S. MSRP) and will be available at authorized retailers and http://www.klipsch.com in August 2012.
In addition to its audio functionality with any device housing a 3.5mm headphone jack, the Image S4i features a three-button remote that houses a directional mic, granting Apple device users seamless call and music control, as well as crystal clear conversations. Also available in a black or white finish, the headset carries a two-year warranty and includes four pairs of different-sized ear tips, a protective carrying case and clothing clip for the remote and mic. The new Image S4i retails for $99.99 (U.S. MSRP) and will be available at authorized retailers and http://www.klipsch.com in August 2012.
Catering to Android’s™ mobile and tablet users, the Image S4A presents a fully functioning headset with in-line remote and mic for advanced controls. Upon download of the free Klipsch Control App, the headset’s single-button remote and mic allows users to play, pause and skip music tracks, answer and end incoming calls, and voice search. Each of these button functions and more can be customized through the app. Available in a sleek black finish, this model comes complete with four different-sized oval ear tips, a protective carrying case, clothing clip and two-year warranty. This Image S4A retails for $99.99 (U.S. MSRP) and will be available at authorized retailers and http://www.klipsch.com in August 2012.
