INDIANAPOLIS (January 8, 2013) — Klipsch, a leading global speaker manufacturer, today announces the launch of the Image® A5i Sport, the company’s first-ever all sport in-ear headphone model. Designed to stay put, resist moisture and enhance the most strenuous workouts, this headphone offers renowned Klipsch comfort and sound to fitness enthusiasts of every level.
Offering a secure, customizable fit, the lightweight Image A5i Sport gently wraps around the ear and features a flex-wire design that allows listeners to position the headphone for a perfect fit. With woven synthetic fiber cables, the headphone presents unrivalled durability and moisture-resistance. Adding to its functionality, the Image A5i Sport features a slim three-button remote that houses a directional mic, granting Apple device users seamless call and music control, and crystal clear conversations. A built-in clothing clip keeps these controls in place during activity.
“The Image A5i Sport adds another layer to our highly regarded Image headphone series,” said Chris Aiello, Klipsch product manager for headphones. “Serving as our first true sport headphone, every design component was engineered to withstand the most rigorous activity. As we enter this new category, we look forward to equipping consumers with high-performance audio to accompany their workouts.”
Equipped with the patented oval ear tips for which Klipsch is known, the Image A5i Sport allows for hours of comfortable 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.
The Image A5i Sport utilizes a high-efficiency driver, presenting advanced audio technology that covers a wide frequency range and is capable of delivering dynamic detail for strikingly realistic sound reproductions.
The Image A5i Sport’s audio works with virtually any device that has a standard 3.5mm headphone jack; however, the mic and three-button remote support select Apple products. Included with purchase are four different-sized oval ear tips, a protective carrying case and a two-year warranty. The Image A5i Sport, available in a green finish with gray accents, retails for $129.99 (U.S. MSRP) and will be available at authorized retailers and http://www.klipsch.com in January 2013.
