Just looking at the shape, I don't think you are going to get much noise reduction with these if that's what you're after. I use etymotic with comply foam tips and the noise reduction is comparable to foam ear plugs.

Any experience with these Klipsch Image S4 under a helmet.

The on line review looks good and the price seems great.
They just look like the stick out quite a-ways.

Not very good for the reason you mentioned...luckily the controls died after a few months and I got a refund from Best Buy and then bought the Etymotic.

Get the klipsh x10. Way better sound and more comfortable than the etymotic. You can find the x10 for 89$ on amazon. They block enough noise to use at the gun range

Wow, great price. They look good. Do you know if they come with foam tips or if the comply tips will fit on them?

I've just bought the Shure SE115 as my previous attempts to find a comfortable pair of earphones have failed. I had great hopes for the Sennheiser OCX 880's but my helmets pulled the over-ear cable off when I put the helmet on.

Hopefully the SE115s will be the solution I'm looking for after 3 previous attempts

Maybe this has been covered in this thread and if so, I apologize. I was wondering which (if any) of the comply earphone tips work on the ER61?

I've had my ER6is for about a year now and just love them, but I'm curious about using other tips on them. The Comply units look great, but wasn't sure if they even make a model that fits the ER6i (the isolator series). Based on this Comply compatibilty chart, I don't see any tht will fit the ER6i

The x10's just arrived. Great sound-really clear, tight, and solid bass.
Still too much snow to try with the bike yet.

I finally began using a helmet liner to avoid pulling out the plugs - works well as long as they don't stick out too much --

Nice find, I may give these a try. The on line reviews are stellar, just don't know how they would work under a helmet? They look like they would work fine though.

A lot of the reviews for these state that the cables fail very quickly so what put me off buying them was the questionable durability when used with a helmet.
On first acquaintance, the Shures seem to work well, even working as standard ear plugs when not in use. Good sound from them when not in use as well.
