Our take on the Klipsch Heritage HP-3

An instant classic

Klipsch certainly knows how to make a first impression. These substantial, hand-built Heritage HP3 headphones arrived at my desk impeccably packed in a large wooden display case. When I pulled them out, I could practically feel the weight of Klipsch's long, storied history — the premium materials, the pride in craftsmanship, the attention to detail. I'll have full impressions soon, but my first listen evoked that old-school, high-end Klipsch speaker sound. Intimate and detailed — like that burst of adrenaline from pushing to the front of the crowd at a concert.

Hear What You've Been Missing

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Scintallating!!! OMG these headphones are awesome. You hear things that you have never heard before. To say these things are fantastic is an understatement. Everything about these are spectacular. The packaging that they come in is ridiculously nice --- if they take that kind of care to package these, just think how great they will sound. The build quality is top rate. The sound is amazing. Listening to old classic rock songs (primarily Rush) gave me an even better appreciation for the music as you can really hear things like never before --- unless of course you have a set of Klipsch heritage speakers. The folks at Klipsch have replicated their historical sound in these headphones. If you are a fan of the heritage line of speakers you will love these --- huge and detailed sound stage --- as if you are in the studio with the band. You won't want to share these. Besides sounding unreal, they look and feel great. Another grand slam home run product by this legendary company.

Pros: Wide and detailed sound stage Fantastic sound Uber comfortable Great build quality and look Sounds great on a smartphone but works even better with Dragonfly

Cons: None


Michael from San Antonio, TX on 12/5/2017

This is my first pair of headphones in this ultra high end category, being a big Klipsch fan I became excited when I heard of this from CES 2017. Nearly 11 months after that announcement had to hear what the best headphone audio Klipsch has to offer sounds like. Definitely not disappointed. They feel lighter than I imagined, while also feeling and looking quite stunning. They are very comfortable, they don't squeeze your head like some of their older over ear headphones. Design wise they've definitely made improvements as these are the most comfortable over ear headphones I have had the pleasure of using from Klipsch. The headband could potentially do with a little extra cushion, makes my head tingle slightly after a while, but you can just angle it slightly and continue listening. Listened to these for 6+ hours straight without issue. Their sound is equally beautiful. They as crisp and as clean, possibly more so, than my reference premier floor standing speakers. The bass is as pleasing as my rsw-15 sub without being exaggerated, treble as clear as those horn loaded tweeters. Absolutely remarkably clear audio, particularly anything with live instruments just really comes to life. Very addicting sound, pairs superbly with the Heritage Amp. Love these headphones, recommended if you really enjoy home audio.
