Last Week's Most Interesting


After weeks of nothing, finally we saw a company releasing a new line of IEM last week. Klipsch, who enter the IEM market with its balanced armature transducer based 'Image X' and 'Custom' series, announced a new dynamic transducer based series called the 'Image S' series, with S4 and S2 as the new models. So far we only see S4 on display with a promised release date on April. Judging from Klipsch's S4 website, it seems the S series is targeting the lower end of the market. The interesting bit about the S series is, S4 uses a different (and said to be better) transducer than S2 (which probably going be the lowest end of all Klipsch's headphone models). No official price quote yet, but my personal guess are S4 for US$100 and S2 for $50. In any case, we will have to wait till April to find out more about them. [UPDATE] Got a price quote of US$80 for S4.

Klipsch Image S4 spec:
frequency response10Hz – 19KHz
sensitivity110db SPL/mW
nominal impedance18-ohm
input connections3.5mm

The website does have Google Ads and Amazon Associates enabled (which I have no direct control over their content) - though I don't write review for a living, nor does the ads generates enough money to cover my breakfast (in fact, not even one breakfast per week). Listening to music and playing with audio gears are purely hobby for me. In short, I am just an audiophiles who happens to have his own blog. Not a journalist who happens to be an audiophile.
