Looking at Klipsch for new ear buds, but are they better than my SC Titans?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Iv owned a pair of Skull Candy Titan ear buds for the last two years, and after long periods of use they can put quite a hurting on my ears. Klipsch just came out with these ear buds and they look nice, but I really don't know much in the audio department. So if anyone could tip my opinion in any direction it would be great. Because I can't decide if I should keep my Skull Candy Titans or grab these. Thanks

I had the FMJs by SC, and thought they were great at the time. The one ear bud stopped working and I got the Klipsch s4. What a difference. They sound so much better, it really is a huge difference. My SC's had a lot of bass, or what I thought was bass. With the s4's it feels like everything is much more balanced, the bass doesn't kill the other parts of the music and it just sounds cleaner. The ones you linked to look exactly like my s4's just a different color. Maybe someone with more experience can shed some light on if they are indeed the same thing.

I hadn't seen the S4's, I got pointed to the ProMedia by a MaxPC article. The S4's look to be a little more of what i'm looking for, I don't need the Mic the ProMedia offers. Thank you for the information

From what I've read on Head-Fi, the ProMedia earphones sound the same as the S4 and have almost the same housing. The only difference between that and the S4i (the one with microphone and two buttons) is the fact that the ProMedia has only one button on the in-line mic.

You should have seen these earlier. S4 for 50 bucks.

They might still be in stock. The coupon is still good until after the 12th of April.
