Klipsch has taken the wraps off its first pair of wireless over-ear noise-cancelling headphones. The segment is a popular one that is currently dominated by Sony with its WH-1000XM3 and Bose with its Quiet Comfort 35 II model.

Audio maker Klipsch has revealed its new Over-Ear Active Noise Cancelling headphones. They are the first of their kind from the company and enter into a segment of the market where the Sony WH-1000XM3 and Bose Quiet Comfort II current dominate. Naturally, to take the two big hitters, Klipsch has made sure that its entrant is competitive.

The Indianapolis-based company claims that its latest offering delivers 40 decibels of active noise cancellation while also delivering up to 30 hours on a charge. This is around 10 hours more than you will get from the Bose Quiet Comfort 35 IIs and is on par with what the Sony WH-1000XM3s offer. It will also deliver 5 hours of battery life from a quick 10-minute charge over its USB-C port. They also support the SBC, aptX HD and AAC codecs.

The Klipsch Over-Ear Active Noise Cancelling headphones will go official at CES 2020 and will retail for US$399 when they go on sale in the fall. They will also be available in a special (and more expensive) McLaren F1 co-branded set that will retail for US$549.

I have been tech-obsessed from the time my father introduced me to my first computer, an Apple ][. Since then, I have grown to enjoy exploring and experimenting with any computing platform that I can get my hands on – I am the definitive early adopter! I have always been interested in how we can use technology to shape and improve our lives, most recently using it to record, mix and master my debut record, Acuity – Nature | Nurture out now on Spotify.
