The Klipsch R5 Wireless is now on sale in the UK. Designed for those who live an active lifestyle, Klipsch’s new Bluetooth earphones are an extra-small size. To help achieve this compact design, the Indianapolis-based company locates the electronics separate from the ear buds, meaning the R5 Wireless’s tips fit into ear canals.

The electronics, including the rechargeable battery and the remote control, sit securely on the cable, as opposed to forming part of the earpiece.  The R5 Wireless design also employs two ‘ear cinches’, letting you customise the cable to your desired length, and so keeping the wire out of your way. A further advantage here is the ability for the wearer to select from two options, down and loose or, when, say, heading out on a run, tighten the cord for a secure, unobtrusive fit.

The R5 Wireless’s universal fit earwings further stabilise the earphone, providing balance protection from upwards and sideward movement. The maker also supplies a pair of Comply Ts-100 Comfort foam tips. The Bluetooth 4.2-enabled R5 Wireless works with aptX and AAC high-quality codecs and has a 5mm dynamic moving coil micro speaker driver design.  The R5 Wireless design also supports multi-point pairing, so you can simultaneously pair two devices. Rated at IPX4, the R5 Wireless is deigned to resist moisture, rain and sweat, while its single lithium ion battery is good for up to eight hours of listening to music and taking calls with the integrated cVc microphone and three-button remote. Priced at £100.
