There's nothing like good old competition to keep tech prices in check. Case in point: earphones. The headphone market is heavily saturated, and we can all thank that fact for the existence of many worthy earbud contenders in the sub-$100 price range. Klipsch is one company in particular that has impressed us with earphones in this price range, and its latest entry is no exception. The Image S2m is a stereo headset with an integrated mic and call button that sells for a very reasonable $60. Like its Editors' Choice award-winning sibling, the , these 'phones offer impressive sound for the money, though audio is not quite as crystal clear.
The Good The Klipsch Image S2m earphones offer great sound for the money and include an inline mic and call answer button. The earbuds fit securely and comfortably.
The Bad The Image S2m earphones have a thin, tangle-prone cable, and the clarity on a limited number of songs is not stellar.
The Bottom Line The Klipsch Image S2m earphones provide great sound quality for the money and a comfortable fit. They're a solid option for anyone with a music phone looking for a wired stereo headset.
