INDIANAPOLIS (September 16, 2013) — Klipsch, a leading global speaker and headphone manufacturer, today announces the launch of the Klipsch STATUS, the company’s latest innovation in noise-isolating, over-ear headphones. Perfectly-engineered with pristine yet virtually indestructible materials, the headphone compacts over six decades of technology and acoustic prowess to produce a pure, first-class listening experience.
Constructed from the same durable material used in high-end eyewear and available in a black and white finish, the Klipsch STATUS headphone’s frame, made of Grilamid TR® material, offers unsurpassed durability while a gloss finish with subtle reflective highlights exudes both fashion and luxury. Ergonomically designed for maximum comfort and stability, the headphone features ear cups lined with high-density memory foam, optimized clamp force as well as precisely dimensioned ear cup rotations to create a perfect seal around the ear.
With two detachable cloth cables similar to those used in premium HiFi systems, Klipsch STATUS headphones fit any device with a standard 3.5mm headphone jack. One of the cable features a three-button mic and remote compatible with iPods ®, iPhones ® or iPads ® for complete music and call control.
Aligned with Klipsch’s commitment to generate powerful, emotional music reproductions, the headphones maintain the same sound signature for which Klipsch is known. With dynamic, 40mm drivers, the product delivers crisp highs, deep bass and zero distortion for a strikingly realistic listening experience.
“This Klipsch STATUS presents the ideal blend of sound quality, comfort and portability providing for music enthusiasts who prefer an over-ear model,” said Mike Klipsch, president of global operations for Klipsch. “Not only does it serve as a reminder of our industry-leading position in the highly-saturated headphone industry, but the product also highlights our commitment to engineer products that establish a new listening standard.”
Klipsch STATUS headphones have collapsible ear cups that fit nicely into the included travel case. Also included with purchase are a two-year warranty, two detachable cables, ¼-inch adapter and airline adapter. Klipsch STATUS headphones retail for $249.99 (U.S. MSRP) and will be available at authorized retailers and http://www.klipsch.com in September 2013.
