13 October 2017, Singapore - American sound-icon Klipsch pulls out three new premium 'rabbits' out of the hat. They all look and sound great, so keep reading!
The new Klipsch flagship is a pair of the most finely-crafted headphones from Klipsch yet. Dubbed the Heritage HP-3 headphones, these are assembled by hand using functional yet attractive materials for that perfect blend. Some of the ingredients include die-cast steel, hand-sanded and polished wood, premium-grade leathers, and machined aluminum. Nothing feels disposable here - even the headband and ear cushions are made of cowhide and sheepskin leather respectively.
“After two years behind the curtain, we are finally ready to reveal a headphone worthy of the Heritage name. Acoustically, mechanically, and physically this is the most impressive headphone Klipsch has ever created,” said Steve Jain, vice president and general manager of Klipsch Group, Inc.
At S$1999, it better be!
Small and light, but every bit a Klipsch. The R5 neckband headphone is wrapped in hand-stitched leather that caresses the skin when it sits around your neck. It supports aptX codec for pristine sound over Bluetooth, and lasts up to 8 hours on a single charge. Like other headphones of the same type, the controls are all located on the neckband, allowing for somewhat easy access. The neckband also vibrates to alert the user to incoming calls.
The R5 is also IPX4 splashproof for those days you have to rush back to office under the rain. The Klipsch R5 retails for S$199.
For the space-constrained, the Klipsch RSB-3 sound bar is a slimline speaker that could dramatically enhance the sound of your telly. Bring out the sonic impact you've been missing out watching Netflix when you slot this under your Samsung and connect it to its optical port. This is a bi-amped speaker with two horn-loaded tweeters, a 2.5" woofer and dual oval-woofers, so you'll be ensured of more powerful sound than what regular TVs can muster.
And with an affordable S$599 price tag? That just makes it more compelling.
Wall mounting is available as well.
