Klipsch Bars, Buds and Cans - CES 2020

Klipsch is preparing for CES 2020 with a range of new Dolby Atmos soundbars and earphones, including a partnership with McLaren Formula One.

Klipsch Soundbars - CES 2020 

First up is the Klipsch Bar 54 with Dolby Atmos and DTS Virtual:X technology. The 54-inch soundbar system features a 12-inch wireless subwoofer and Surround 3 with Dolby Atmos speakers. Klipsch states that the system delivers a full 5.1.4 cinematic experience. Additionally, the HDMI-eARC connection enables compatible TVs to transmit Dolby Atmos from built-in apps. That is on top of built-in Google Assistant, Apple AirPlay 2, and Amazon Alexa for control through any streaming partner. The Bar 54 will be available for $1,499 US in the Autumn.

Klipsch earphones and headphones - CES 2020

Klipsch Audio has been unveiled as the Official Headphone and Portable Audio partner of the McLaren Formula 1 team. The Klipsch x McLaren headphones will be debuted at CES 2020. According to the brands, the resulting partnership has produced ear pleasers that are built using the most advanced technologies and finest materials, inspired by McLaren Racing with fluid designs that are accentuated by highlights of McLaren's signature colour - Papaya Orange.

Klipsch x McLaren

Klipsch x McLaren T10 - CES 2020

The Klipsch x McLaren T10 True Wireless smart earphones are significantly smaller and lighter than any other true wireless earphone available today, so says the press release. They boast a built-in operating system with embedded artificial intelligence and are controlled using advanced gestures. That aside, we are told that they are also capable of high-quality audio, voice control, and telephony with dual-microphone active noise cancellation. Inside they are loaded with the same balanced armature as the Klipsch X10i earphones plus an “exclusive turbo boost mode to enhance the performance.” You also get a natty recharging case that “features state-of-the-art magnetic doors.” Available in the Autumn for $999 US.

The Klipsch x McLaren Over-Ear Active Noise Cancelling (ANC) headphones are also kitted out with dual-microphone noise cancellation tech. The Over-Ear ANC headphone sports ultra-plush memory foam earpads, a lightweight design, seamless Bluetooth connectivity and transparency mode (we're guessing so you can hear announcements rather than your headphones turning invisible). You also get 30 hours of battery life, and a flight case complete with pockets for travel essentials and convenient charging. Yours for $549 US in Autumn. 

Klipsch x McLaren T5 - CES 2020

The Klipsch x McLaren T5 Sport True Wireless earphones are dust and water-tight with an IP67 rating. The case, as well as also getting the IP67 stamp of approval, features a unique moisture removal system and wireless charging. You get three sizes of no-budge ear wings, patented Klipsch oval ear tips and pressure relief memory foam ear tips all bundled in too. Available Autumn 2020 for $249 US.

Klipsch Connect and True Wireless

If you don't care about the special McLaren editions, Klipsch is debuting the standard Klipsch T10 ($649 US) and noise-cancelling T5 True Wireless smart earphones ($299 US) as well as the Over-Ear ANC headphones ($399 US). The T5 also comes in IP67 rated Sport ($229 US), and T5 II ($199 US) flavours.
