Especially these days, a witty sense of humor and a quarter won't even get you a cup of coffee, but Klipsch is giving funny-makers a shot at some its S4 headphones and a HD Theater 300 speaker setup. That's right -- those snarky remarks you normally give out for free can now score you some gear! Here's the bracket breakdown -- four caption contests will be run (each lasting two weeks) and the winning entry from each caption contest will win a pair of S4 in-ears; and a random entry from the final four will score a HD Theater 300 speaker system. Long odds and lots of competition, so now's the time to break open that war chest of audiophile taunts you've been building up. Full PR release after the break.


WHAT: Klipsch is hosting four separate online photo caption contests to celebrate the launch of its new Image S4 headphones and HD Theater 300 home theater system. Contestants simply visit klipsch.com to access the contest. From there, all they have to do is enter a witty caption related to the provided photo in 140-characters or less.

Klipsch will select the best caption from each contest and those authors will win a pair of Image S4 headphones, valued at $79.99. As a bonus, Klipsch will randomly select one name from all entries and that lucky winner will score an HD Theater 300 home theater system, valued at $399.99. Photo captions and contest winners will be posted on Klipsch's Facebook page.

WHO: Legal U.S. residents, not directly affiliated with Klipsch or any of its employees, are encouraged to enter their creative caption.

WHEN: This online photo caption contest runs now through September 7, 2009.
