Wire-free earbuds with F1 looks and premium materials
Klipsch teamed up with McLaren Racing for this special edition of their T5 II true wireless sport earbuds. The streamlined design and striking color scheme were inspired by the famous British Formula 1 team. Both the charging case and lightweight earbuds are fully waterproof, and Klipsch includes a generous helping of ear tips. This version also comes with a wireless charging mat.
Music plays wirelessly via Bluetooth 5.0, the latest and greatest version of the wireless technology. And the 5mm drivers feature a thinner diaphragm that can move, stop, and start more quickly. All to serve up that famous, dynamic Klipsch sound — high on detail, low on distortion — with a nice helping of bass to push you through more reps.
Super-durable charging case banks 24 hours of power
These earbuds offer up to 8 hours of battery life — really solid for wire-free earbuds. Plus, the case banks an extra 24 hours of power to recharge on the go. If your workout was outdoors or especially grueling, no worries. The case has special material inside that will absorb and remove sweat or moisture.
When you need to recharge the case itself, just place in on the included wireless Qi charging pad.
Secure in-ear fit and waterproof design to handle the workouts of world-class athletes like McLaren driver Lando Norris.
Large collection of ear tips for patented comfort
Klipsch includes six different sizes of their patented oval ear tips with the T5 II Sports, you now get six different sizes. These soft silicone earbud covers slide in easily to keep the earbuds stable and secure while you move. I find they avoid pressure points and create one of the best seals out there — crucial for getting solid bass response.
You also get a pair of soft foam ear tips that contour to your ears, avoiding painful pressure points. So you have options! Klipsch even includes ear wings to further secure the earbuds while you workout.
Reliable wireless connection
Klipsch designed these earbuds with out-facing antennas for a stronger wireless connection and less audio dropouts. Tha Each earbud can make a strong, independent Bluetooth connection to your phone or other audio device. You can grab either earbud to make a quick call, or use both to listen to music. Either way, pairing is hassle-free.

Overview: The Klipsch T5 II True Wireless Sport McLaren Edition earphones is the collaboration of Klipsch and McLaren's Formula 1 Racing team, two companies that specialize in design quality and technical innovation. This special edition of the T5 II True Wireless Sport earphones features McLaren Papaya Orange ear tips and racing stripes on the charging case, as well as carbon fiber accents. The earphones and charging case are waterproof and dustproof with an IP67 rating. Its unique moisture removal system helps to keep them dry even after a workout. Like the other T5 II True Wireless earphones, the T5 II Sport delivers the legendary Klipsch sound comfortably and without wires. They are approximately 25% smaller than the original T5s, with a shape that more closely mimics the shape of the ear canal, to provide a more secure fit and better noise isolation. The ear buds include Klipsch's contoured oval ear tips to ensure they stay in place for hours, even during rigorous activities. The T5 II True Wireless Sport earphones include 6 pairs of Papaya Orange silicone ear tips, 3 pairs of silicone ear wings to keep them solidly in place, and a pair of memory foam ear tips. The charging case not only charges the earbuds, but itself can be charged wirelessly with any wireless charging pad, or with the included USB-C cable.
Drivers: The T5 II True Wireless Sport McLaren Edition earphones feature the 2nd generation T5 driver, designed for high output and natural sound with deep bass. The 5mm dynamic drivers were engineered from the ground up to give you the most performance from the smallest form factor. The T5 II's driver has an all new ultra-thin diaphragm for better clarity and improved audio quality.
Microphones: The earphones feature four microphones with cVc 8.0 (Clear Voice Chat) and Beamforming technology which enhances the clarity of your voice while actively reducing external noise. This makes your phone calls loud and clear.
Transparency Mode: The Klipsch T5 II True Wireless Sport McLaren Edition earphones offer a Transparency Mode, which uses the built-in microphones to pick up sound around you and pass it through to your ears. This allows you to maintain awareness of your surroundings without having to remove the earbuds.
Ear Tips: The patented, oval-shaped Comfort Fit silicone ear tips fit the natural shape of the ear canal, ensuring a deeper fit and good seal for excellent noise isolation (-22dB). Six pairs of silicone ear tips are included to help you find the best fit. Sizes include Small, Small+, Medium, Medium+, Large, and Large+. This Sport version also includes a pair of memory foam ear tips that contour to your ear canal to relieve pressure for long listening sessions.
Bluetooth 5.0: The earphones feature Bluetooth 5.0, with a range of up to approximately 33 feet (10 meters). A new signal-boost external antenna helps to provide a solid connection to your device for fewer dropouts. Bluetooth profiles include A2DP 1.3, AVRCP 1.6, HSP 1.2, and HFP 1.7. The headphones include SBC, AAC, and aptX codecs for high-fidelity audio streaming.
On Board Controls: Control of the T5 II True Wireless Sport McLaren Edition has controls on the outside of each ear bud for music playback and phone calls. There are controls for the left and right ear buds when they are worn together, or individually as a single earphone. Long and short presses, long presses, and double presses are used to adjust the volume up or down, music playback (play/pause, skip forward, skip backward), phone calls (answer call, end call, mute microphone), and activating the voice assistant (Siri, Google Assistant). Fewer functions can be controlled when using only one earbud.
Battery: Each T5 II True Wireless Sport ear bud is powered by a 50mAh rechargeable battery. The ear buds are charged when placed inside the supplied Charging Case, which has a 360mAh Lithium Ion rechargeable battery. The case's battery can be wirelessly charged by placing it on top of a wireless charging pad. It can also be charged via with the supplied USB-C charging cable, plugged into the USB-C port inside the case (5.0V, 1.0A). If the charging device does not have a USB-C port, the included USB-C to USB-A adapter can be used. The earphones, when fully charged, provide up to 8 hours of battery life. The case's battery provides enough reserve power for three full charges, or 24 additional hours. When the T5 II True Wireless Sport is paired with an iOS or Android device, the battery status is visible on the device's screen.
Moisture Removal System: The waterproof Charging Case has a desiccant pod in the lid filled with moisture absorbing silica gel crystals. If the earbuds become wet when in use, you can place them in the charging case and close the lid. The Moisture Removal System will draw out the moisture from the earbuds and into the desiccant crystals. Periodically the crystals will need to be reactivated by placing the removable pod from the charging case and placing in the microwave oven for about 30 seconds. Replacement desiccant pods are available from Klipsch if they are no longer effective at removing moisture.
Klipsch Connect App: The Klipsch Connect App is designed to provide even more performance and potential for the T5 II True Wireless Sport earphones. With the app, you can adjust the sound of your music with six preset EQ settings (flat, treble, vocal, podcast, bass, and rock). You can also set and save a custom EQ curve along 6 bands (60Hz, 150Hz, 400Hz, 1kHz, 2kHz, and 15kHz). The battery status is available at a glance on the app, as well. To keep your earphones working in top shape, any firmware updates are delivered through the app. Klipsch Connect is available on the Apple App Store for iOS devices running version 12.4 or later, and from Google Play for devices with Android version 7.0 and up.
