Just when we thought that we had seen every possible cool set of headphones, we stumbled across the new Heritage Headphone series while we were at the Klipsch booth checking out the inspiring speaker line by the same name. Once again, we couldn't help but fall in love.
Just like the speakers, these headphones were designed with a lot of character. For this line, Klipsch took on the specific challenge of making sure that none of the surfaces were plastic. Each pair is finely designed with a craft made look. They took the time to focus on the individual materials: the leather, the real wood, metal, copper and steel.
And, just like the speakers, don't think that these headphones are just a pretty package alone, because that couldn't be further from the truth. They are definitely engineered for function as well as style. They boast superior sound quality with new leading edge driver technology. They offer an open, airy sound that is very natural. There is no added bass or effects because they truly believe that music is art and their goal is to recreate the musical experience as the artist intended.
There is a large assortment in both style and aesthetic in the Heritage series. You can choose from open and closed ear models accompanied by either oak, ebony or walnut finishes. There are options in the closed ear models that also include features like Bluetooth and ambient noise cancellation technology.
Series pricing goes from $399 to $999 and you can get more information from their website at Klipsch.com.
