Klipsch unveils their first Bluetooth neckband headphones – the X12
The first of its kind for Klipsch, the X12 Neckband Bluetooth is built with the traveler in mind. It comes with a solid 18-hour battery life, and has a lightweight steel frame with a genuine leather neckband that’s IPX4 splash resistant so you can keep it on all day with comfort.
There’s also a built-in cVC microphone in each that enhances voice clarity while reducing environmental noise so you can take and make calls even when you’re out in a crowd. AptX and AAC support ensures that you get the best Bluetooth experience possible, and the neckband even vibrates to notify you of incoming calls. Raised controls allow you to adjust volume and skip through tracks by feel so you can keep your eyes on the road, and more importantly, have been tested to work with both Android and Apple devices.
In terms of acoustics, the X12 uses a single custom KG-926 balanced armature driver. Ported and vented, this balanced armature driver delivers a classic tube amplifier sound with great clarity to boot. It also comes with Klipsch’s patented oval ear tips that are anatomically designed to fit the contours the ear canal, providing for hours of comfortable wear. A better fit means less ear fatigue, and better passive noise isolation while improving the quality of the bass, making for a better listening experience overall.
The X12 will be available all major Klipsch retailers for S$695, but no release date has been announced yet.
