INDIANAPOLIS (February 6, 2014) — Klipsch, a leading global speaker and headphone manufacturer, announces today the appointment of Mike Seals as an official brand ambassador. Effective immediately, the undefeated light heavyweight boxer with a passion for technology will become a major component of the marketing campaigns surrounding the brand’s high-performance audio products.
"It’s great to see sound purists teaming up with a boxing purist like myself,” said Seals. “Because we both love what we do and always strive for perfection, I see only positive outcomes in our work together and I’m ecstatic to get started.”
“Mike's rise to fame in the professional boxing space coupled with his glowing record and drive for the sport all made perfect sense when formulating this partnership,” said Paul Jacobs, CEO of Klipsch. “Mike’s intense passion for boxing undoubtedly mirrors our attitude when it comes to high-performance audio. Together, we will continue to strive to remain undefeated in both the boxing and audio industry rings.”
Introduced to Klipsch via his college colleague, current brand ambassador Robert Mathis, Seals immediately reached out to the company with hopes of being able to experience Klipsch's superior sound solutions. Now, as a brand ambassador, he will be incorporated heavily into the creative inspiration behind the marketing and social efforts serving the brand itself, its headphones and home audio products, and his representation of the brand during fight nights.
Today, Seals utilizes Klipsch products in his daily workout regiments including the Klipsch Music Center KMC 3 while in the ring as well as the A5i Sport for personal workouts. Because of his love for gaming, Klipsch will incorporate him into the marketing of the new KG-200 and KG-300 Wireless headsets.
This announcement coincides with Klipsch’s large-scale sports marketing initiative that incorporates world-renowned athletes into the daily activities fueling the brand and its overall growth. As a result, Seals joins fellow Klipsch brand ambassadors that include Andrew Luck (Indianapolis Colts), Robert Mathis (Indianapolis Colts), DeMar DeRozan (Toronto Raptors), and Roy Hibbert (Indiana Pacers).
