Klipsch produces hardware that are good looking, sound great and go the distance. If you’re someone that likes a good investment, then keep reading. Not long ago we saw the release of their T5 series of headphones, now we’re getting even more. At CES 2020 Klipsch has released multiple new devices, each with their allure for a different market segment.
The T10 Smart, true Wireless earphones – US$649
The simple fact is these are the smallest and lightest in-ear audio devices available. Klipsch has partnered with Ear Micro to deliver something that – on paper at least – is pretty special. The T10 ticks all the boxes for the current generation of in-ear listening including six hour battery life (plus a further 24 hours in the case) and Active Noise Cancelling.
They also go a step further because they’re so physically small, touch controls aren’t practical. The built-in OS allows users to control their earphones with head gestures. How this looks in practical terms, we’re not sure of just yet but we’ll be sure to take a look at this if we can secure a review unit.
The T5 Sport True Wireless Earbuds – US$299
Focused on athletic users, the T5 Sport true wireless earphones are a really nice looking piece of hardware. They have IP67 rating, active noise cancelling, USB-C and Wireless Charging capability and a high quality case that removes moisture.
Staying true to the needs of different users, Klipsch includes a number of different tips. This makes sure that they’ll fit properly during your workout and give you the best audio possible. If you’re on the move a lot, the case will provide you – like the T10 – a further 24 hours of charge.
The Over-ear Active Noise Cancelling Headphones – US$399
For the more discerning audio listener, Klipsch has also released a pair of Over-Ear Active Noise-Cancelling headphones. More aimed at users who want the audio quality, listening time, higher levels of comfort and either commuting or travelling regularly they’re built for heavy use.
I’m a fan of over-ear headphones for a number of reasons:
In the case of Klipsch’s new offering you’re getting aptX HD and AAC audio via a Bluetooth 5 connection.
All of the ANC models of earphones have transparency mode to allow the ambient noise and voices through when you’re in an area where it could be a matter of safety. One thing is certain with Klipsch, you’re going to get quality hardware and a great listening experience – provided you’re prepared to pay for it.
