INDIANAPOLIS (July 15, 2015) — Klipsch, a leading global speaker and headphone manufacturer, today announces the launch of two new Pro-Sport headphones. The Klipsch Pro-Sport AS-5i in-ear headphone is engineered to stay put while powering intense workouts, while the Pro-Sport AW-4i withstands rigorous activity in harsh outdoor elements.
ProSport AS-5i headphone caters to fitness enthusiasts by offering a secure, customizable fit, gently wrapping around the ear. A flex-wire design allows listeners to further position the headphone for a perfect fit. Reinforced cables provide unrivalled durability and moisture-resistance.
The Pro-Sport AW-4i headphone combines award-winning sound, all-weather resistance and advanced mobile technology. It is crafted to motivate and support the most daring outdoor enthusiast. Sporting tough, ruggedized rubber moldings on the exposed surface of each ear bud, the all-weather Pro-Sport AW-4i works to resist moisture to ensure full functionality no matter the conditions.
Both models feature a three-button remote that houses a directional mic, allowing Apple device users seamless call and music control, and crystal clear conversations. The Pro-Sport AW-4i offers an extra-large three-button remote to ensure full functionality while wearing gloves.
The Pro-Sport AS-5i and AW-4i are available in blue or black finishes.
Boasting the patented oval ear tips for which Klipsch is known, the Pro-Sport headphone series allows for hours of comfortable, long-term wear. Unlike circular-shaped ear tips that put stress on the pressure points inside the ear, Klipsch’s patented oval ear tips naturally fit the contours of the ear canal, providing comfortable long-term wear. These ear tips also offer superior noise isolation (or passive noise-cancellation), blocking out almost all ambient noise and providing excellent bass.
Offering the same award-winning acoustics as other Klipsch in-ear headphones, the Pro-Sport headphones are equipped with dual magnet micro-speakers. This advanced audio technology covers a wide frequency range, while delivering dynamic detail for strikingly realistic sound reproductions.
The Pro-Sport headphone series works with virtually any device that has a standard 3.5mm headphone jack; however, the microphone and three-button remote support select Apple products.
Included with purchase are four different-sized oval ear tips, a soft-fabric case, clothing clip and two-year warranty. The Pro-Sport AS-5i all-sport in-ear headphone retails for $79 and the AW-4i all-weather model is $59 (U.S. MSRP). They will be available at authorized retailers and klipsch.com in July 2015.
