On-the-go and in-the-office headphones with Klipsch style
Guess where you'll find the Klipsch T5 Neckband earbuds in heavy use? In the Klipsch offices! Of all their headphones, these were the ones I saw most often when I visited Klipsch heaquarters in Indianapolis. The leather and metal neckband will vibrates when you get a phone call, so many of the folks at Klipsch leave them around their neck even when the earbuds aren't in.
Music plays wirelessly from your phone via Bluetooth. These headphones are part of Klipsch's "True" series lineup, so they include a state-of-the-art Bluetooth chip that offers a strong wireless connection. You also get up to 15 hours of battery life on a full charge.
Tuned for classic Klipsch sound
The new Bluetooth technology also helps Klipsch provide the audio performance they're known for. Vlad Grodzinskiy, who leads their headphone division, told me the stronger wireless connection equals better sound. It allows the 5mm drivers inside the T5 Neckband earbuds to do their thing. They deliver that famous Paul W. Klipsch sound — high on detail, low on distortion — with nice helping of bass.
Sweat-proof, lightweight, and convenient
If you've never worn this type of headphone, the band actually rests on your collar area, allowing you to move your head around more freely. The lightweight earbuds seem like they are hardly there at all. Plus, the neckband is water-resistant, so a little sweat or moisture won't cause any problems. There are controls for music and phone calls, and the built-in microphone ensures conversations are clear.
Soft oval ear tips for patented comfort
When it comes to in-ear headphones, fit and comfort matter. So Klipsch includes their patented oval ear tips. Klipsch includes four sizes of these soft silicone earbud covers that slide in easily and comfortably. I find they avoid pressure points and create one of the best noise-isolating seals out there — crucial for getting solid bass response.
On my tour of Klipsch HQ, I saw firsthand that they didn't just stumble onto their oval ear tip design. Vlad pulled out several tackle-boxes full of rubber-ish molds of actual people's ear canals. "Back in 2007, we were looking for a common similarity among different ear types," he said. "And we noticed an oval cross section in each mold – no matter the size."
