Read this and find what suits your sound signature preference, for me its slightly bassy with slightly absolutely no sibilance.

EDIT: well seems you dont need the linky, but yes seal makes a major difference, and the S4s are one of the bassier ones around, others include Meelectonics M31, V-moda (anyone really), crappy Skullcandies, and Monster Turbine

+1, Thanks alot, I agree with the reviewer the S4 feel a little muddy.

I ordered the aftermarket tips, well see how much difference it makes.

Like you I had klipsch S4's and wanted a little bit more bass, (not that it is weak for its price range but there is better more expensive IEMs out there) so I ended up buying some Monster Turbines Pro Gold for $120 used local.

I did have a problem with their eartips so I picked up the Sony Hybrid tips and let me tell you......there is a very noticeable improvement in these Turbines over the S4s in the bass department, while maintaining nice mids and highs.

The Klipsch's were indeed much more comfortable though.

Glad to see someone who understands me haha, well I ordered the Comply T-100s for the S4s apparently it makes a huge difference. i don't really find the S4s comfortable with the Gel since my ears get more waxy the more I wear them and they keep sliding out, i find myself having to shove the IEM down my canal and it becomes uncomfortable.

Check the thread in my signature. It was already posted by Wired-Knight, but I thought I'd confirm it's integrity.

Before even reading page two i went off to get the link for these: [ame="http://www.amazon.com/Sony-EPEX10A-BLK-Replacement-Earbuds/dp/B001RB24UA/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top"]Amazon.com: Sony EPEX10A/BLK Hybrid Replacement Earbuds (Black): Electronics[/ame]

And then read your comments on the Sony Hybrid Tips. Outside of the shure e2 foam tips i've tried, which were very good, these are the best tip replacements I have used on any IEM.

The inner channel that seals on the output from the driver is made of tougher stuff and the outside is soft and comfortable while providing an "excellent" seal. These will pretty much make any IEM isolation worthy in terms of a quick listen. I use these on my RE0's on the train for over 2 hours every single day and they are incredible for what I was looking for.

I don't really enjoy "heavy" bass anymore, but i feel they gave a nice low freq punch to my RE0s, which are notable for being very neutral and balanced, while still having crystal clear highs. I never use eq settings with these iems and they are dead nuts perfect for my listening needs.

I also tried these on a pair of modded jvc marshmellows and more recently, a pair of Thinksound Rain IEMs that I bought. Instantly a huge increase in clear bass and no loss of anything else. The thinksounds are cool too if you wanna look into them. They have wood enclosures so they are warmer and arent going to give you the cooler/neutral sound most people prefer with trance/electronica, but they have deep bass and liquid mids and I find them a nice change of pace from time to time. Anything vocal on them is like crazy good for a $55 IEM.
