Klipsch Debuts HP-3 Heritage Headphones



Klipsch fans who are into high-performance full-size headphones will be thrilled to know that the HP-3 Heritage ($1199)— the company’s new flagship model that was previewed at CES 2017—will make its public debut today at CanJam RMAF 2017, which is occurring now in Denver at the Rocky Mountain Audio Fest.

The HP-3 Heritage headphones have been under development for two years and represent what Klipsch senior manager of product development Vlad Grodzinskiy calls “Acoustically, mechanically, and physically the most impressive headphone Klipsch has ever created.”

In keeping with consumer expectations for premium products at this price point, the HP-3 ships with two detachable braided cords (a 4.5-foot and an 8-footer) as well as a custom solid-steel headphone stand.

The HP-3 utilizes 52 mm “free-edge biodynamic drivers” that the company states results in “high efficiency, low distortion, and full range sound.” It’s a semi-open design, which allows it to have expansive soundstage of open-back headphones combined with the improved bass response that closed-back headphones provide.
