A guide to ultra-comfortable earphones

A guide to ultra-comfortable earphones

TRUE COMFORT – LEVERAGING MORE THAN 70 YEARS OF ACOUSTIC TECHNOLOGY, KLIPSCH MAKES THE MOST COMFORTABLE EARPHONES ON EARTH.

Think about this scenario for a moment - you put your earphones in for your commute, your workout, or a phone call. You’ve got your playlist ready to go.

How do your earphones feel?

Do they fit into your ear canal or do they sit at a strange angle?

Do they feel uncomfortable after just a few minutes?

Do you have to constantly adjust them?

If you answered “yes” to any of those questions, then you need to get the skinny on why and how Klipsch cornered the market on the most comfortable earphones in the world.

“‘True Comfort’ is more than just a slogan,” explains Klipsch Engineering Program Manager Andrew Doerr. “Here at Klipsch, everything we’ve done for each headphone is part of that comfort story.”

Klipsch is built on more than 70 years of groundbreaking acoustic technology. In 2007, Klipsch engineers saw the potential for making a headphone that offered the same legendary sound of our speakers. The research began by studying, well, ears. Engineers made molds of various ear canals and reached the same conclusion - ear canals are oval-shaped, not round.

Doerr says the evolution of making in-ear headphones more comfortable began back with the X series. “We now had the smallest ear tips, nozzle, and housing in one product,” he says.

Doerr says his team is always hunting for improvements to make the comfort improves every time a new iteration of Klipsch earphones comes to life.

PATENTED OVAL EAR TIPS

PERFECT SEAL, EXCELLENT BASS, NOISE ISOLATION, AND LASTING COMFORT

Human ear canals are oval shaped, not round. Most other earphones are round, which can be uncomfortable.

Klipsch’s patented oval ear tip design means that our earphones won’t fall out, the way cheap round earbuds do.

 

SMALL NOZZLE AND PATENTED HOUSING

COMFORTABLE FIT WITH MINIMAL FATIGUE

Klipsch earphones use the smallest nozzle size available. Doing this allows the nozzle and housing to stay small for a more comfortable fit inside your ear and minimizes the room it takes up in your ear canal.

Other earphones with larger nozzles create pressure to the inside of your ear canal and cause discomfort.

Klipsch earphone drivers are the smallest in the industry and built in the housing unlike competitor’s drivers that are built into the nozzle. Doing this allows Klipsch to keep the housing and nozzle small. Larger housing means the nozzle and the tip will be larger and cause discomfort.

 

APPROACH ANGLE

SEAMLESS ENTRY INTO THE EAR CANAL FOR MAXIMUM COMFORT AND ACOUSTICS

Depending on the form factor of the earphone determines how the housing angles into your ear:

  • Up and in: The nozzle is at an upward angle and inward tilt, creating a seamless entry into the ear canal. (T5 Series)
  • Full 360° for maximum flexibility (True Wireless)

The third component of our premium-comfort is the angle of the nozzle. Doerr says the T5 Sport, T5M, and T5 Neckbands took the same successful approach used on the R6i in-ear headphones. An up angle, coupled with a side angle, made for a better fit and turned into a separate patent for Klipsch’s engineering design team.

The T5 True Wireless earphones offer full 360° turning for maximum flexibility.

Any way you slice it, Klipsch earphones are designed so you can enjoy your music and only your music, without interruption or having to adjust your earbuds.
