First of all, I would like to thank Sarah from Mustard PR for sending me these out to review.
I first glanced on the Klipsch S3M’s at the Digital Summers event in London. I was immediately intrigued by them, due to my good impressions of the S4’s that Klipsch has built a good reputation around, in the earphone world for low-priced, but very well performing earphones. Thus, I wanted to review the S3M’s in a more controlled environment and compare them to the impressions I had of the S4’s.
The S3M’s can be purchased from sellers such as AmazonUK and are priced at £40.
The S4’s, their bigger and older brothers can be found also on AmazonUK at £43 and their newer revision at £59. Although I have no idea what the difference between the S4’s revisions are. The S4’s mentioned in this review are based on the cheaper and older revision.
