Klipsch has launched the Image S4i Rugged, the company’s latest in-ear headphone model engineered to withstand the elements. It sports weather resistant, ruggedized rubber moldings on the exposed surface of each ear bud.

The Image S4i Rugged works to resist moisture to ensure full functionality no matter the conditions. Offering a three-button remote, the headphone offers iPhone users call and music control during activity. Located on the back of the remote is a directional mic for hands-free phone calls.

The Image S4i Rugged is available in a yellow, orange, blue or red finish. It works with virtually any device that has a standard 3.5mm headphone jack; however, the mic and three-button remote support select Apple products.

Included with purchase are four different-sized oval ear tips, a nylon zipper case, clothing clip and two-year warranty. The Image S4i Rugged retails for US$99.99 and will be available at authorized retailers and http://www.klipsch.com later this month.
