    I want to get new headphones. I have bought a couple so far, but I want better ones than just 30-40$ headphones. So I'm down to the Image S4i's by Klipsch or the Bose Around-Ear headphones. Now, I prefer small headphones(more like earbuds/in-ear headphones), mainly because I can just put them in my pocket and not in my backpack. I'm interested in sound quality and sound isolation. I've heard great things about both, but I don't know which one is better. Can anyone help me out? I'd appreciate it.
    Added poll, I noticed people would rather vote than comment

    I recently bought the klipsch image s4i. I have never tried the Bose ones but I really like the klispch ones. They have good noise isolation and sound very good. Also, they look really nice IMO.

    Bose has been known to have overpriced headphones.

    Also, I cannot say enough about the S4's. The S4's were the very first high end audio equipment i've ever purchased. They have single handedly made me appreciate audio.

    Do your self a favour and get the S4's. You will hands down not be disappointed, and I cannot recommend them enough.

    i also vouch for the S4i; however, the 3.5mm connector part isn't bent (it isnt bent on the Bose one either) so be careful
