Klipsch announced today the launch of its Image X7i line, the first-ever ceramic headphone models made by the Indianapolis-based company.

Klipsch has revealed a rugged variant of its popular S4i line of in-ear headphones. The new S4i Rugged shares a lot in common with the S5i Rugged and offers outdoor enthusiasts an option for listening to music on the go. It is weather resistant, with an extra-large remote control, all with a non-slip grip coating that will help to ensure users can enjoy high-quality audio without worrying about damaging them.
In a last-minute arrival, Klipsch's promised Gallery G-17 wireless speakers have started shipping. The AirPlay-focused speakers pipe audio from any iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, or iTunes app on the same Wi-Fi network. The design is meant to provide an "audiophile resolution" with dual amps as well as two 20W woofers and two 10W tweeters.
Klipsch has just introduced a special version of its X10i earbuds with the Signature Audio Edition Lou Reed X10i. As the name indicates, the company teamed up with key Velvet Underground founder Lou Reed. The singer and songwriter is a self-confessed fan of Klipsch products and puts his signature of each set of these.
Klipsch has announced its first earphones designed specifically for Android devices. The new Image S4A earphones are compatible with all Android devices running Android 2.1 (Eclair) or later. The earphones include an in-line remote that gives users push-button control for music and calls, while it also comes with a companion app.
Klipsch has just introduced the finalized version of an AirPlay-compatible speaker in the form of the Gallery G-17. The nearly 17-inch long enclosure houses two 0.75-inch tweeters that use Tractrix horns and get fed 10W of power each along with two 2.5-inch woofers with 20W each. Other than the wireless audio streaming from iOS devices, the device gets a 3.5mm line-in and a USB port.
Klipsch has quietly introduced a new upscale pair of over-ear headphones. The Mode steps up above Klipsch's regular pair with active noise cancellation but also promises to fix the short runtime the earpieces often have. Full noise reduction should last 45 hours, and the headphones will keep playing as usual if the batteries run out in mid-session.

Cirrus creates Lightning-headphone dev kit
Apple supplier Cirrus Logic has introduced a MFi-compliant new development kit for companies interested in using Cirrus' chips to create Lightning-based headphones, which -- regardless of whether rumors about Apple dropping the analog headphone jack in its iPhone this fall -- can offer advantages to music-loving iOS device users. The kit mentions some of the advantages of an all-digital headset or headphone connector, including higher-bitrate support, a more customizable experience, and support for power and data transfer into headphone hardware. Several companies already make Lightning headphones, and Apple has supported the concept since June 2014. http://bit.ly/29giiZj

Apple employees testing wheelchair features
New features included in the forthcoming watchOS 3 are being tested by Apple retail store employees, including a new activity-tracking feature that has been designed with wheelchair users in mind. The move is slightly unusual in that, while retail employees have previously been used to test pre-release versions of OS X and iOS, this marks the first time they've been included in the otherwise developer-only watchOS betas. The company is said to have gone to great lengths to modify the activity tracker for wheelchair users, including changing the "time to stand" notification to "time to roll" and including two wheelchair-centric workout apps. http://bit.ly/2955JDa
