Simplified flat cable, remote enhances new Image ONE
Global speaker manufacturer Klipsch announced the launch of the new Image ONE Bluetooth and upgraded Image ONE on-ear headsets. For the first time on any Klipsch product, the new models have improved flat cabling as well as a flat-folding collapsible design. Both new headphones will be available in September.
The Image ONE Bluetooth its Klipsch's first wireless headphone model. The controls for the headset and phone call reception are located on the right ear cup. The headset is available in a black finish with aluminum accents, and is compatible with any Bluetooth device that supports the A2DP protocol. The Image ONE Bluetooth will be available for $250.
An update to the iMage ONE provides flat ear pads, with a simplified cable design, featuring one cable feeding into the left cup instead of one cable to each ear cup as in the previous design. A three-button remote and microphone is housed on the cable for phone call reception and music control with Apple devices. The new Image ONE retails for $150.
