Those using music phones should also be plenty impressed with the sound quality offered by the Image S2m earphones. Bass is present without being overwhelming, though it's mushier than what we experienced with the Image S4. Also, we could detect some low-end distortion for certain metal tracks, and overall audio was not as crystal clear as that offered by the S4. Highs are also not quite as bright and crisp, but some listeners may prefer the softer, somewhat warmer sound of the S2m. Still, music in general came through with a good amount of detail and thump, and despite our minor gripes, we think these headphones feature great audio response for the money--we've certainly heard worse from earbuds that cost the same or even more. Plus, you get the added benefit of an integrated mic. All in all, the Image S2m is a great value for music phone owners with discerning ears.
