Our take on the Klipsch Reference Over-ear Bluetooth®

"I'm with the band..."

Many of the musicians and frequent concert-goers working here at Crutchfield are fervent Klipsch fans.

It takes you right down in front of the stage, where you can feel the energy and emotion of the performer. The Klipsch Reference Over-ear Bluetooth headphones make it convenient to hear that exciting sound on the go. Music plays wirelessly from your phones, and controls are right on the earcup.

Features

Overview: The Klipsch Reference Series over-ear Bluetooth headphones feature the latest driver technology and premium comfort. With Bluetooth 4.0, you can enjoy your music and phone calls wirelessly. The headphones come with a tangle-resistant pass-through cable, a USB charging cable, and a hard shell zippered carrying case.

Bluetooth 4.0: The headphones feature Bluetooth 4.0 wireless technology with a range of up to approximately 33 feet (10 meters). Bluetooth profiles include Multipoint A2DP, AVRCP, and Multipoint HFP. The headphones include aptX + AAC streaming for high-fidelity sound.

Klipsch Balanced Dynamic (KBD) Drivers: The over-ear BT headphones are equipped with high-end 40mm Klipsch Balanced Dynamic drivers. KBD technology utilizes fully balanced drivers that move like a piston to deliver lower distortion and increased bass.

Ear Pads: The headphones have removable memory foam ear pads that provide long-time comfort, and an excellent seal to keep out external noise, while keeping your music inside. The ear cups are hinged and can fold in for compact storage in the supplied hard shell case.

Battery: The wireless headphones are powered by a built-in 400mAh rechargeable battery. The battery can be charged via USB (5.0V, 0.5A) with the supplied charging cable. When fully charged, the battery provides approximately 20 hours of power for wireless listening.

Integrated Microphone: The Klipsch over-ear BT headphones feature an integrated microphone with cVc (Clear Voice Capture) 6.0 technology. With cVc, you get clear, natural voice communications with ambient noise rejection.

On-board Controls: The headphones have on-board 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, previous track, and Voice Assistance (e.g. Siri). When managing your phone calls, the remote can answer, reject, and end your calls. The on-board controls only operate when Bluetooth is on. They do not work when you're listening using the pass-through cable.

Pass-Through Cable: The Klipsch Over-ear BT headphones come with a 50" tangle-resistant flat pass-through cable, which allows you to listen to your music and phone calls when the built-in battery is exhausted. The cable has no in-line remote, so you will have to control your music and phone calls on the connected device. The cable terminates into a slender 3.5mm plug that is compatible with most smartphone cases.

Specifications:

  • Frequency Response: 20 Hz - 20 kHz (with Bluetooth); 15Hz - 20 kHz (with pass-through cable)
  • Sensitivity (1 mW): 110 dB
  • Power Handling: 100 mW
  • Impedance: 32 ohms
  • Ear Cup Dimensions: 2.972"W x 3.718"H x 1.917"D

Customer Q&A

Crutchfield asked  
Why did you buy this?

Have always been a fan of Klipsch performance. Enough to give these a try. Will review when I have had them for awhile. Thanks to LT and the help he provided with compatibility of certain devices. Love the team at Crutchfield. Robert [ Robert C.  Dec 31, 2017 ]
I bought a Klipsch KSW 10 Sub, when I was stationed in Japan almost two decades ago. It still runs hard and strong. After speaking with Crutchfield assistant "CJ" I was confident the headphones I choose would serve me well. [ Byron  Sep 13, 2017 ]
Unlike Bose, Klipsch lists audio specifications. Also, a few reviews complained of inadequate volume on the Bose headsets. Finally, the Klipsch unit was on sale. [ DAVID  Mar 09, 2017 ]
High quality sound and materials [ William  Jul 13, 2017 ]

1 question already asked

Since the battery can be charged via USB (5.0V, 0.5A) using the supplied charging cable, you can use a USB-AC European adapter to charge the Klipsch headphones overseas. If you would like to discuss further, feel free to contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. I hope that helps! [ Larry  Jan 09, 2017 ]  Staff
