2. KLIPSCH Image S4i Rugged
Rugged headphones with the sound quality of Klipsch. The website says “an all-weather design to protect the legendary Klipsch sound from Mother Nature’s bad side”. I guess it’s true. The design is bold and stylish, big buttons on the remote control but less than 15 grams of weight. The KLIPSCH Image S4i Rugged can resist the sand and the water, but no IP code reported in the specs on the official website. Someone reported that after a complete cycle in the laundry they are still working. But I would not be so brave to try.
ATTENTION: There are many sellers on Amazon with great prices for Klipschs’ product, but not all of them are authorized dealer. The items purchased by an unauthorized dealer are not covered by the manufacturer’s warranty. Here you can check the authorized online dealer.
This is an Amazon authorized dealer – Price $88.00
