INDIANAPOLIS (January 5, 2015) — Klipsch, a leading global speaker and headphone manufacturer, today announces the debut of its Reference On-Ear headphone at CES 2015. The same advanced acoustic engineering from the brand’s legendary Reference home theater line inspires the performance, voice and design of the headphone.
“The Reference On-Ear headphone establishes a new standard in the market by providing users an ideal blend of unmatched comfort, legendary sound quality and unlimited portability,” said Vlad Grodzinskiy, senior manager of headphone product development for Klipsch. “This product was not built to be flashy, but to possess a sleek design that improves reliability to ensure that listeners are equipped with a premium headphone that lasts for years to come.”
Klipsch’s Reference On-Ear headphones combine comfort and sound quality in a compact package that hides hinges and sliding mechanisms in favor of a minimal, clean look. Its ground-up design also protects mechanical components from the outside world to improve reliability. The model is complete with high performance, 40-milimeter drivers to deliver a proper representation of music from any genre. Vocals are clear; highs are crisp, while bass is true and accurate.
The headphone’s soft and deep ear cushions significantly improve comfort and separate music from outside noise. The ear cups provide articulation in every direction, ensuring that pressure is applied evenly across the entire ear, allowing for hours of unbeatable comfort. Designed with portability in mind, the product is light on the head and folds up neatly. The cups have also been shrunken so the ear cushion is the largest component.
Reference On-Ear headphones offer listeners an advanced, three-button remote and mic for seamless control of music and phone calls on iPhone, iPad and iPod models. The flat, tangle-resistant cable enables hassle-free storage and transport.
The Reference On-Ear headphone is available for demo at Klipsch’s CES booth in the Las Vegas Convention Center’s Central Hall at booth 10428. Available in a black or white finish, the headphone comes complete with a carrying case and one-year warranty. Reference On-Ear headphones will retail for $199.00 (U.S. MSRP) and be available for purchase through authorized retailers and klipsch.com in February 2015.
