Klipsch and McLaren partner up for the T5 II True Wireless Sport McLaren Edition Earphones

Klipsch T5 II True Wireless Sport McLaren edition.

It's no secret that Klipsch will introduce new true wireless headphones (after all, they are in the business of personal audio). What's unexpected was the partnership with motor race team McLaren that brought about a very cool pair of true wireless earbuds, complete with a carrying case in McLaren livery.

The Klipsch T5 II True Wireless Sport McLaren edition comes with McLaren's unique Papaya Orange and carbon fibre accents, and each unit comes with a brand book and serialised metal card of authenticity. It's effectively the special version of the Klipsch T5 II True Wireless earbuds, although details of the regular variant are still under wraps.

The earphones don't only look the part - it embodies several traits that define sport-ready audio gear. Both the buds and the carrying case have IP67-certified dust- and water-resistance, on top of built-in moisture removal to ensure that the device remains dry. It also comes with a Transparency Mode that allows ambient noise to pass through the earbuds, so you can be more situationally aware when needed.

For the best possible fit, Klipsch included six pairs of their patented ear tips, one set of Comply memory foam tips, and three sizes of ear wings. The case itself charges wirelessly (wireless charging pad is included) or via USB Type-C cable. The earbuds have eight hours battery life, with the carrying case offering an additional 24 hours of playback.

Other known features also include its 5mm dynamic drivers, four beam-forming microphones for call and voice chat usage, and an anodised metal exterior antenna to boost its signal pick-up.

The Klipsch T5 II True Wireless Sport McLaren Edition earphones are available for pre-orders at S$399, at Klipsch's Singapore official website. The first units will arrive in August 2020.
