Holiday Gift Idea 4: True wireless earbuds that look as good as they sound

X'mas Gift Idea 4: True wireless earbuds that look as good as they sound

Klipsch T5 True Wireless earbuds

If you’re looking for a gift for your favourite audiophile a set of stylish looking true wireless earbuds, check out the Klipsch T5 True Wireless earbuds. These use Klipsch’s patented oval ear tips for better fit, which aids in noise isolation and in providing better bass response. The T5 True Wireless earbuds use the latest Bluetooth 5.0 protocol and have aptX HD support for better wireless streaming, while boasting an 8-hour battery life.

The T5 sets itself apart with a distinctive design inspired by the Zippo lighter. A flick of your thumb opens the case in which the earbuds nestle. The case has a nice heft to it, so there’s no worry of accidentally flicking too hard and sending the whole unit flying across the room.

Most other true wireless earbuds casings seem to be designed horizontally, making them easier to open when using both hands, but Klipsch’s vertical design improves upon this experience. Flick the cap open with one hand, retrieve the earbuds with the other hand, and flick it close again.

Music on the T5 comes across as suitably balanced and detailed, with an appropriate amount of bass that doesn’t overpower everything else. Klipsch’s patented oval ear tips provide an excellent seal for blocking out noise, so you can fully enjoy your music. Just be wary of traffic and your general environment when you take the T5 out for a jog! Speaking of outdoors, the T5 is sweat and water resistant with an IPX4 rating, so you'll be fine even if you get caught in a passing shower.

From 3 - 29 December, the Klipsch T5 will be going at a special promotional price of S$319 (Usual price: S$349). It's available in a choice of Silver or Triple Black, and can be found at the Klipsch website, Lazada, Shopee and all leading consumer electronics and lifestyle retail stores.
