The Klipsch T5 Series launches in the UK. Consisting of four new earphone designs the new T5 Series covers the in-ear bases: with up to 32 hours of wireless play, the T5 True Wireless is a traveller’s dream; the T5 Sport enables a super-secure fit for cardio workouts; the T5 Neckband offers a compelling mix of form and function; and the T5 M Wired fixedly concentrates on maximising sound performance from its secure-fitting, wired design.
Klipsch T5 True Wireless
Bringing its maker’s legendary sound and superb fit to a fast-developing product category, the Klipsch T5 True Wireless is set to light up the True Wireless market. It impresses from the off, arriving securely packed in its ‘Zippo style’ carry case. Not just a pretty face, this protective container also acts as a wireless charging unit, supporting USB-C for fast powering and enabling up to 24 hours of battery charging. Add this to the True Wireless’s single charge eight hour battery life, and the user can listen for up to 32 hours without need for a juice stop. Chatting at length, thanks to this T5’s four integrated mics with cVc (clear voice chat) technology, is also a sure option – even more so when you factor in the patented oval ear tips, meaning great noise isolation, superior bass and reduction in ear fatigue.
The Klipsch T5 True Wireless employs Bluetooth 5 with built-in aptX high-quality audio ability. Whatever the format, the full bass, dynamic driver excels, always getting best from your tunes. The T5 True Wireless is also digital assistant ready’ – just press to instantly connect with the smart helper of your choice – and the Klipsch Connect App (available this autumn) lets you check the battery level, run firmware upgrades, and adjust EQ settings. Getting hot under the collar at the thought of all this tech? No worry, the T5 True Wireless is IPX4 rated, so sweat and water-resistant.
Klipsch T5 Sport
Designed for those with active lifestyles, the Klipsch T5 Sport majors on a secure fit, even when the wearer is undertaking a serious cardio workout. Klipsch’s patented oval ear tips already enable a super-snug fit and the T5 Sport adds smart cable management – choose from down and loose or tighten the cord and employ the ear wings – to further lock-down your buds. The pack also contains a pair of Comply Ts-100 Comfort tips, giving users a further option to enable the best possible fit.
In addition to a secure fit, the T5 Sport delivers assured performance. The model’s dynamic driver combines high output and full bass extension – ideal for a 140pbm, electro house exercise playlist – and the single lithium-ion battery is good for up to ten hours of tunes and calls. The model offers built-in aptX and aptX HD Bluetooth 5 support, with the latter supporting 48 kHz / 24bit LPCM audio. It also enables multi-point pairing, so you can simultaneously pair two devices. Users get the T5 range’s integrated cVc mic, IPX4 rated sweat and water resistance, with further features accessible via the upcoming Klipsch Connect App. Beautifully crafted, the T5 Sport design also incorporates a three-button remote, allowing seamless control of music and phone calls with both Android and Apple devices.
Klipsch T5 Neckband
The Bluetooth-equipped Klipsch T5 Neckband delivers the reassurance of buds connected to a wire, together with the convenience of a wireless connection with your smartphone. It also presents a gorgeous look and feel, using a lightweight, hand-stitched, edge-treated leather neckband, which sits directly on your neck or tucks under your collar. This approach enables up to 15 hours of listening to music and taking calls – the built-in neck vibration feature notifies you of incoming calls and the integrated cVc dual mics automatically enhance voice clarity and actively reduce environment noise.
In line with its T5 Sport sibling, the T5 Neckband employs Bluetooth 5 complete with built-in support for aptX HD, rates IPX4, and works with the forthcoming Klipsch Connect App. It also sports Klipsch’s patented oval ear tips – only Klipsch has these – plus that integrated, three-button remote control. Engineered for pure performance, the T5 Neckband’s dynamic driver delivers powerful sound from a really neat package, offering music fans a compelling new choice in the neckband category.
Klipsch T5 M Wired
No Bluetooth connectivity? No sports fit? No True Wireless technology? It’d be tempting to dismiss the Klipsch T5 M Wired as a blast from the past but, when it comes to the sound-per-pound ratio these buds are nigh unbeatable. For those who don’t require added features, this model delivers the T5 Series’ superb-sounding dynamic moving coil micro speaker driver design, together with its maker’s patented, great-fitting oval ear tips. Add IPX4 rating plus a single-button mic/remote and the T5 M Wired easily looks, and definitely sounds, every bit as compelling as the rest of the new Klipsch earphone collective.
