INDIANAPOLIS (November 14, 2012) — Klipsch, a leading global speaker manufacturer, announces today a three-year strategic partnership with the Toronto Raptors (NBA). With the 2012-13 NBA basketball season underway, Klipsch will serve as the official headphone partner of the Toronto Raptors.
Serving as the team’s official headphone, Klipsch will be highly present amongst the team and spectators. The Toronto Raptors have been outfitted with Klipsch Mode M40 headphones to personally experience the brand’s award-winning comfort and high-performance sound signature. With Raptors Guard DeMar DeRozan serving as the brand ambassador, Klipsch will design a custom, Raptors-themed headphone for him to wear while traveling to and from games.
