DESIGN THE NEXT KLIPSCH HERITAGE SPEAKERS OR HEADPHONES IN NEW COMPETITION

Fancy being responsible for designing a new Klipsch active speaker or set of headphones? Now's your chance.

Klipsch has opened up its very own design competition for students and young designers under-30 years of age.

The contest is part of the brand DNA (avant-gardism, innovation) but it also perpetuates the will of Paul W. Klipsch which was to offer a unique audio experience with beautiful products.

The theme of the competition is “HERITAGE” - meaning the young talents of today will have to tap into the roots of the brand to imagine the products of tomorrow which could fit in Klipsch's HERITAGE range.

Open to France, the UK, Italy and Spain from April 15th 2019, the competition will end on June 15th 2019 to give way to the deliberations at the end of June 2019. A jury will then appoint the 4 winners.
