New wireless speakers have been revealed.
Klipsch has announced Google Assistant integration for its upcoming next-gen Heritage Wireless Speakers. The collection will include new editions of the Three and the One.
The Three Klipsch Heritage Wireless speaker is a stereo tabletop model with an integrated subwoofer for enhanced bass performance. Meanwhile, The One Klipsch Heritage Wireless is a smaller, semi-portable tabletop model with a rechargeable battery, giving users more freedom on where to place the unit. And with Google Assistant integration, both speakers will allow users to get information, stream music, receive news weather and traffic, create shopping lists, control smart devices, make phone calls, and more. In addition, both models feature a mid-century modern design with real wood veneer, copper switches and knobs, and Bluetooth wireless connectivity.
The Three Klipsch Heritage Wireless speaker with Google Assistant is set to launch this fall for an MSRP of $499. Meanwhile, The One with the Google Assistant is expected to arrive in in the spring of 2019 for an MSRP $349). Beyond the new Google Assistant speakers, Klipsch is also currently showcasing several other Heritage and Heritage-inspired products at CES 2018 in Las Vegas from January 9-12.
The show's lineup includes the Klipschorn, Cornwall, and Forte speakers; The Sixes wireless speakers; the new Heritage Theater Bar; and the HP-3 headphones. The HP-3 features a semi-open design along with a recessed pair of free-edge 52mm biodynamic drivers that are designed to mimic the imaging qualities of Klipsch Heritage speakers. Each unit is hand-assembled with solid-wood, triple-vented ear cups, angled sheepskin ear pads, and a genuine hand-stitched cowhide headband.
