Klipsch have for a long time been developing high quality in-ear earphones for the consumer market and iPod generation. For those not familiar with this exciting company, Klipsch were founded shortly after World War II by American Paul W Klipsch, with the view to becoming the market leader in all things HiFi related. Their range of in-ears are widely regarded as some of the best available and the new Klipsch models look set to bolster this reputation. Causing a stir at HiFi Headphones HQ this month are the new offerings from Klipsch, including a very intriguing new addition…
Klipsch Image S3
The latest addition to the Klipsch Image range, the S3 will be introduced as a stripped down version of the Klipsch S4. Sporting a fabulous Gun Metal Grey finish the S3 will be available from October 2010.
Klipsch Pro Media In-Ear: Gaming Earphone
This cool Black/Red design looks set to be another popular new model from Klipsch, based along the same lines as the S4, but with a MAC/PC compatible VOIP/gaming adaptor. This will be particularly interesting as In-Ear manufacturers have not fully embraced the gaming market with full-size Headphones being the current weapon of choice for gamers, so we await this addition with interest.
Klipsch S5i Rugged
This Earphone from Klipsch has been specifically designed for use whilst playing Sport or any physical activity. Designed to restrict Water, the S5i Rugged also boasts tangle resistant cables, easy to use enlarged Transport Buttons with included 360 degree mic and a very futuristic water resistant carry case. Available November 2010 these look set to be a favourite for anyone looking for high quality audio whilst exercising.
There are also mods and tweaks to the S4/S4i so watch this space for further details.
Klipsch Image One
Then, right out of the blue came this… the first On Ear Headphone from Klipsch. Yes, On Ear! Based on the sound signature of the S4, the new Image One has a sleek/stylish appearance crossed somewhere between Bose On Ear and the B&W P5, and comes complete with three button transport control, microphone and a crush resistant travel case, these foldable on-ears have whipped up a lot of interest. More reviews to follow when we get our hands on these exciting new products.
