INDIANAPOLIS, IND. (July 10, 2020) — Klipsch®, a tech-driven premium global audio company, is pleased to introduce three new true wireless earphones that are designed to deliver best-in-class sound, comfort, technology and materials. Each new model features an innovative and functional case.
Klipsch is the official headphone and portable audio partner of the McLaren Formula 1 team. The two companies have collaborated to combine McLaren’s unparalleled design ethos and technical innovation with Klipsch’s legendary high-fidelity audio and unparalleled comfort. The result is the Klipsch T5 II True Wireless Sport McLaren edition earphones — engineered for extreme performance and designed to stay dry and in place through anything life throws at them. US MSRP $249.
Key features include:
- Dust and water-tight earphones and case (rated IP67) with moisture removal system ensure the earphones remain dry.
- Six pairs of patented Klipsch ear tips, one pair of memory foam ear tips, and three sizes of no-budge ear wings ensure a customized, comfortable, and secure fit.
- The case charges via USB-C or wirelessly with the included one-position wireless charging pad.
Up to 32 hours of battery (8 hours in the earphones).
- Best-in-class acoustic performance and four beamforming microphones with clear voice chat.
- A seamlessly designed anodized metal signal-boost exterior antenna.
- McLaren’s hallmark Papaya Orange and carbon fiber accents, special edition brand book, and a serialized metal card of authenticity.
New Klipsch T5 II True Wireless Sport earphones include the same features as the Klipsch McLaren edition and are available in three colors – black, white, and green. While the case charges wirelessly and via USB-C, it does not include a wireless charging pad. US MSRP $229.
Additionally, the Klipsch T5 II True Wireless earphones are the second generation of its acclaimed T5 predecessor. The earphones are approximately 25% smaller and more closely mimic the shape of the ear for maximum comfort. The amount of Klipsch patented comfort ear tips has doubled to include six pairs for a customized fit. A new signal boost antenna delivers a high-quality, seamless Bluetooth®
wireless technology connection. The earphones are dust and waterproof (rated IP67) and fit into a slimmer premium brushed metal case that holds up to a combined 32 hours of battery life (8 hours in the earphones). US MSRP $199.
The free Klipsch Connect App is available in eight languages and allows users to make product updates, EQ adjustments, access the quick start guide and troubleshoot, detect device battery status, and manage transparency controls.
All new earphone models are available for pre-order on July 10 through Klipsch.com and Worldwide Stereo. To learn more, visit Klipsch.com/mclaren-sport.
