The fine folks at Tinh Tê have managed to snag what appears to be a new, redesigned pair of the iconic Apple earphones. The alleged iPhone earphones appear cone-shaped, perhaps so they may fit snugly in the ear canal. Good news to all small-eared readers out there: this redesign would probably keep them from popping out while bumping to music, or running with the Nike+ app. If the redesign turns out to be true, they would be a welcome addition to be included with the next-generation iPhone. All the rumors are pointing to a September 12 Apple iPhone announcement. Thanks to Google translate, it is understood that the earphones are more compact than previous models. According to the reports, the sound quality is much improved and the bass is significantly louder. Video after the break!

It has been a while since we covered a Klipsch product, but the company just announced the new Image S4i, “an in-ear headset that combines the company’s acclaimed sound performance and amazing comfort value with a unique in-line microphone and remote.”
It’s designed for iPhone and iPod users, and features Apple’s advanced three-button microphone and remote system that can handle voice and/or music controls. By the way, the Image S4i works seamlessly with the iPhone 3GS, and the latest releases of iPods. It is also compatible with the Apple VoiceOver feature on the 3rd gen iPod Shufle, so you can hear the name of the playlist, song, or artist.
The Klipsch Image S4i is planned for release in August, at a price of $99.99.

Klipsch says that they now have the planet’s smallest and most lightweight earbuds for iPhones, iPods, or any device with a head phone jack. Their Image earphones weigh only about 10g and are smaller than an average human’s fingernail. The phones come with a set of silicon Contour Ear Gels which the company claim are anatomically designed to fit the human ear canal and are not only comfortable, but provide an excellent seal for isolating sound. The earphones come with a case, 1/4-inch and airline adaptors, and gel cleaning tool for $349.00.
