About the Klipsch T5 Sport Earphones
Add Klipsch finesse and toughness to your workouts
The sweat-proof Klipsch T5 Sport earbuds play music wirelessly and deliver classic Klipsch sound.
Add Klipsch finesse and toughness to your workouts
"Sweat-proof and super-durable." That's how Vlad Grodzinskiy, head of Klipsch's headphone division, described the T5 Sport Earphones when I visited the company's Indianapolis headquarters. Those happen to be two key attributes when it comes to workout headphones. And I learned that Klipsch has the other important stuff covered, too — like sound, fit, and comfort.
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 10 hours of battery life on a full charge, so I think that should cover even the most hardcore workouts.
Tuned for classic Klipsch sound
Vlad also explained that the new Bluetooth technology helps Klipsch provide the audio performance they're known for. Basically, a stronger wireless connection equals better sound. It allows the 5mm drivers inside the T5 Sport earbuds to do their thing. They deliver that famous Paul W. Klipsch sound — high on detail, low on distortion — with nice helping of bass to fuel your workout.
Soft oval ear tips for patented comfort
For workout headphones especially, fit and comfort matter. So Klipsch includes their patented oval ear tips. Klipsch includes three 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.
There is also a pair of Comply foam tips inside the box. These special tips conform to the shape of your ear canal to create a tight seal. Klipsch includes a set of "ear wings" to further stabilize the earbuds, and a cord cinch to adjust the connecting cable behind your head.
Built and developed from years of research
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."
For this sport model, Klipsch gave the slim earpieces a unique, angled shape for a more secure fit. This keeps them from moving around during exercise and also helps isolate your music from outside noise.

Overview: The Klipsch T5 Sport wireless in-ear earphones are designed for active lifestyles. The contoured oval ear tips ensure the earphones stay in place for hours, even during rigorous activities. They're also rated at IPX4 to withstand rain, moisture, and sweat. The T5 Sport Wireless earphones include 5 pairs of ear tips, including a pair of Comply Premium foam ear tips, ear wings, a USB charging cable, and a cloth carrying pouch.
Drivers: The T5 Sport Wireless earphones feature the same driver as all of the T5 series earphones from Klipsch (including the T5M, T5 Neckband, and T5 True Wireless). The drivers were engineered from the ground up to give you the most performance from the smallest form factor. The T5 Sport's 5mm dynamic moving coil micro-driver are designed to deliver the high quality Klipsch sound with high output and full bass extension. The ear buds are ergonomically shaped for a deeper fit and better hold, so they'll stay in your ears, whether you're working out or relaxing.
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). Four pairs of silicone ear tips are included, including one pair of dual-flange ear tips. In addition, one pair of Comply™ TS-100 premium foam ear tips are included for even better ear retention. The unique ear wings provide added stability and extra security, holding the ear tips in your ear canal.
Bluetooth 5.0: The headphones feature Bluetooth 5.0, the latest in wireless technology with a range of up to approximately 33 feet (10 meters). Bluetooth profiles include BT4.1, A3DP 1.2, AVRCP 1.4, HSP 1.2, and HFP 1.6. The headphones include SBC, aptX HD, and AAC codecs for high-fidelity audio streaming. Multi-point pairing lets you pair two devices at once.
Battery: The wireless headphones are powered by an 80mAh rechargeable battery built into the in-line remote. The battery can be charged via USB (5.0V, 0.5A) with the supplied charging cable. When fully charged, the battery provides approximately 10 hours of power for wireless listening. When using the T5 Wireless with an iOS device, the battery status is visible on the device's screen.
In-line Remote/Microphone: The headphones have an in-line remote with controls that are compatible with Apple iOS devices (iPhone, iPad, iPod touch) and Android smartphones and tablets. The 3-button remote controls volume up and down, as well as play/pause, next track, and previous track. When managing your phone calls, the remote can answer, reject, and end your calls.
Integrated Microphone: The Klipsch T5 Wireless headphones feature an integrated microphone with cVc (Clear Voice Capture) 8.0 technology. With cVc, you get clear, natural voice communications with ambient noise rejection.
Cable Management: The T5 Wireless in-ear headphones come with two cord clips, giving you the choice of wearing styles. You can choose to wear the cord over the ear and cinch the cord tight against the back your head to keep the headphones secure during active workouts. For a relaxing fit, let the cord run under your ears and loose behind your neck, using the clips to shorten the cable as needed.
