INDIANAPOLIS (August 28, 2012) — Klipsch, a leading global speaker manufacturer, today announces the launch of the new Image™ ONE Bluetooth® and upgraded Image™ ONE. Catering to on-ear enthusiasts, these headphones maintain the same high-quality sound signature and comfort for which Klipsch headphones are known while introducing enhancements in build, functionality, design and performance.
With the launch of these two Image ONE series models, Klipsch introduces upgraded, flat cabling—attached only to the left ear cup—for added durability and tangle resistance, as well as a flat folding collapsible design for space-saving storage.
Image ONE Bluetooth
Combining high-performance Klipsch sound with the convenience of wireless listening, the Image ONE Bluetooth serves as Klipsch’s first wireless headphone model. Given its utilization of Hi-Fi Bluetooth (A2DP) audio quality and aptX Codec for lossless streaming, users experience high-performance, uninterrupted listening. The Image ONE Bluetooth’s wireless capabilities are enabled via its built-in rechargeable battery; with wired connection still possible via the included direct connect audio cable. Large, easily-accessible controls are located on the right earcup for controlling playlists and phone calls. Because of extensive research, the volume controls on this earcup offer ideal ergonomic placement, ensuring one’s thumb naturally falls onto the control. Lined with professional-grade foam and equipped with an adjustable leather headband, it provides premium comfort and superior noise isolation. Available in a black finish with brushed-aluminum accents, and compatible with any Bluetooth-enabled device, the Image ONE Bluetooth retails for $249.99 (U.S. MSRP) and will be available at authorized retailers and http://www.klipsch.com in September 2012.
Maintaining the same acoustics of the current model, the updated Image ONE provides listeners with flat earpads and an adjustable leather headband for optimal comfort and fit, still providing superior levels of noise isolation. Simplifying cable design, the headphone utilizes only one cable that feeds into the left earcup. Because the headphone’s earcups fold flat into the headphone, a smaller carrying case is provided for more compact storage. The same three-button remote and mic is housed on the cable for full call and music control with Apple devices. The new Image ONE retails for $149.99 (U.S. MSRP) and will be available at authorized retailers and http://www.klipsch.com in September 2012.
