INDIANAPOLIS, IND. (January 4, 2017) — Klipsch®, a tech driven audio company, continues its 70th anniversary celebration at CES® 2017 by debuting its legendary sound in smartly designed products. Klipsch is focused on delivering innovative audio products consumers would be proud to have in their homes. This CES showcase will be one of the largest debuts of new products in Klipsch’s history.
“The Klipsch showcase of products illustrates our commitment to incorporating luxury materials, such as real wood veneer and tactile spun copper switches and knobs, blended with the acoustics and the classic design legacy of Paul W. Klipsch,” said Paul Jacobs, president and CEO of Klipsch Group.
The Heritage Wireless collection is expanding and Klipsch will introduce two table top speakers and a pair of powered floorstanding speakers, named The Fifteens. “When designing The Fifteens, we took cues from the 1930’s and the result is a pair of romantically nostalgic floorstanding speakers with a distinct wide baffle and large format sound,” said Steve Jain, VP and general manager, Klipsch. “The Fifteens completely redefine the audiophile experience with a design nod to the past and the latest technology.” Also on display in the Heritage Wireless collection, attendees will find The One, The Three and The Sixes.

Klipsch with the latest technologies available today. The floorstanding speakers provide clean, multi-dimensional sound and true, full-range performance with a narrow profile.
Other must-see products include the new Heritage range of headphones consisting of multiple models with a top of the line product that incorporates Klipsch’s first semi-open headphone design. “In a sea of plastic headphone options, Klipsch Heritage Headphones are crafted from machined metal, milled wood, and hand-selected full grain cow hide.
