Klipsch’s first true wireless earbuds arrive at CES 2019

American audio brand Klipsch announced a slew of new devices at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, all of which should excite fans of the brand and newcomers alike.

First and foremost, the company is looking to expand its headphone line with a slew of compelling new in-ear options. It will add four new headphones in what it calls the T5 line, including the company’s first pair of true wireless earbuds (called the T5 True Wireless).

We have very little detail of the performance specs (battery life/driver size and type) in the new wireless in-ears, but we can say that they appear to be very stylish. They come in a sleek silver case that resembles classic flip-top Zippo lighters. The company says all four new headphones models will be available this spring, with prices ranging from $59 to $199.

The company also announced some exciting new soundbars, five in total, that are aimed at bringing outstanding clarity and realism to your favorite on-screen moments. All of the soundbars come with some smart functionality on board, from built-in Google Assistant on the smallest Klipsch Bar 40G to Google Assistant, Alexa, and Airplay 2 compatibility on the largest Klipsch Bar 54A. The larger Klipsch Bar 48W and Klipsch Bar 54A will also feature immersive surround sound options, with the former offering DTS Virtual:X surround and the latter offering Dolby Atmos compatibility. All five new soundbars will be available in the spring and will range in price from $299 to $1,599.

Klipsch also expanded its Heritage Wireless speakers with a new model called The Three that comes with Google Assistant onboard. It will feature various finish options, and will even be made into a special portable version for those interested in taking their tunes with them on the go. Prices will range from $149 to $499, and the speakers will trickle out in spring and summer this year.

CES 2023: New Sennheiser wireless earbuds help you hear better in noisy places
A man wearing the Sennheiser Conversation Clear Plus earbuds.

It's a noisy world out there, and if you've ever found it hard to hear a conversation in a crowded bar or anywhere else with substantial ambient noise, then Sennheiser's Conversation Clear Plus wireless earbuds, announced this week as CES 2023, could clear things up for you.

When the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) made it possible for those with mild to moderate hearing loss to get over-the-counter (OTC) hearing aids without a prescription last October, the market responded, with big-name players like Sony, Jabra, and Bose jumping in with products of their own. And while Sennheiser isn't officially tagging the Conversation Clear Plus earbuds as OTC hearing aids, they use what Sennheiser calls "advanced speech enhancement technology," developed by one of the world's biggest hearing aid makers, Sonova (which now owns Sennheiser), with the main purpose of enhancing speech and filtering out noise so you can hear conversations better.
