Default Klipsch or Ultimate Ears?

Hey guys, I'm currently seeing new earphone models at stores such as klipsch which I never seen at futureshop before and a new model of ultimate ears 500. They both cost around $70. Klipsch model is "image 3"



I love ultimate ears from past experience, but I've heard good about klipsch also. Which ones are better? Generalizing the klipsch models, not asking about a specific one.


Also testing the email system atm hehe. Hoping that when you guys reply I will get a notification. For the past years I've been book marking certain threads and checking up on them.

Are you sure it is not the Klipsch Image S3? For what it is worth what I have read about the the S3 is mostly negative. But take that with a grain of salt as I have seen positive comments too. Generalizing based on my experienced with the ProMedia (AKA S4) I would say Klipsch are overpriced. The S4 is not a bad IEM, but at $80 there is simply too much competition for me to recommend it. At $40 or less it becomes a little more appealing. Given that the S4 is Klipsch top-tier consumer IEM, I imagine the S3 at that price is probably not a good deal (they go for $30 here in the US BTW).

I cannot say I have heard much about the UE 500. For what it is worth, the UE 600 is just a rebranded SuperFi 5 whereas the UE 500 is an entirely new IEM.

I believe it is the S3 because it states to in the specifications.

I guess I'll save up on the ultimate ears .
