Klipsch just released the flagship Heritage HP-3 headphone in honor of their late founder Paul W. Klipsch. These $1200 over-ear headphones feature die-cast steel, milled wood, premium leathers, and machined aluminum components. Solid-wood, triple-vented ear cups add natural warmth and character. Angled sheepskin ear pads provide depth and distress naturally with age. A genuine hand-stitched cowhide headband adds quality, strength, and becomes more pliable over time. The craftsmanship is showcased by the visible nuts and bolts construction that is built to stand the test of time.
The Klipsch Heritage HP-3 semi-open design creates accurate, natural sound and refined bass. Proper acoustic venting drives the powerful and smooth delivery of the Heritage HP-3. Back-vented to the outside world as well as through the front baffe, the drivers can breathe and allow ambient noise to fuse seamlessly with the rhythm of your music, creating a natural presentation. Precisely vented between the front of the driver and directly behind the ear pad through a vortex guide, the headphone reduces pressure in your ears, and creates a consistent performance for any head or ear shape.
The HP-3 headphone feature a recessed a pair of free-edge 52mm biodynamic drivers that decrease distortion, further expand the soundstage, and mimic the imaging characteristics of Klipsch Heritage speakers. Each comes packaged with a custom solid-steel rod headphone stand, short (1.37m) and long (2.5m) detachable braided nylon cables, and a custom-fit ¼” adapter. The HP-3
