About the Klipsch T5 II True Wireless
Truly wireless and truly Klipsch
The Klipsch T5 II True Wireless earbuds offer up to 8 hours of listening and the case banks 24 hours of power to wirelessly recharge them.
Truly wireless and truly Klipsch
Back in 2019, Klipsch dove headfirst into the truly wireless trend with their T5 True Wireless earbuds. For this new version, you still get that bold Klipsch look and many of the same features that made the original one of our top-selling headphones — including the Zippo® style charging case. But the earbuds themselves are now 25% smaller, completely waterproof, and feature redesigned drivers to better deliver Klipsch's immediate, hard-hitting sound.
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 Paul W. Klipsch sound — high on detail, low on distortion — with a nice helping of bass for your on-the-go listening.
Reliable wireless connection
I visited Klipsch's Indianapolis headquarters right before the T5-series first launched, so those earbuds will always hold a special place in my heart. But I'm glad to see that Klipsch has addressed one of the few issues our customers had with the originals — audio would drop out from time to time. Outward-facing antennas surround each of the T5 II earbuds, ensuring a stronger wireless connection and extending the range.
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.
Klipsch streamlined the overall earbud design and added an external antenna for a stronger wireless connection.
Their responsiveness to this feedback parallels the thoughtfulness I saw in the building, and is really what makes Klipsch, well, Klipsch. (Check out the end of that story just to see how much attention to detail went into the cool case design!)
Large collection of soft oval ear tips for patented comfort
Klipsch includes even more of their patented oval ear tips with the T5 II, 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.
I saw firsthand that they didn't just stumble onto this design. Klipsch showed me several tackle-boxes full of rubber-ish molds of actual people's ear canals. In these molds, they noticed an oval cross section in each mold — no matter the size.

Overview: The Klipsch T5 II True Wireless earphones are two independent wireless ear buds that deliver the legendary Klipsch sound comfortably and without wires. The second-generation T5s are approximately 25% smaller, with a shape that more closely mimics the shape of the ear canal. This provides 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. They have a much improved IP67 water resistance rating over the IPX4 rating of the original. The T5 II earphones include 6 pairs of ear tips, a sturdy, brushed metal Charging Case for storage and recharging the ear buds, and a USB-C charging cable (with USB-A adapter).
Drivers: The T5 II Wireless earphones feature the 2nd generation T5 drivers, 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 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+.
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 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 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 charged via USB (5.0V, 1.0A) with the supplied USB-C charging cable. 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 is paired with an iOS or Android device, the battery status is visible on the device's screen.
Klipsch Connect App: The Klipsch Connect App is designed to provide even more performance and potential for the T5 II True Wireless 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.
