Klipsch announced today the launch of an upgrade to its Quintet home theater system. The new Quintet 5.1 home theater system is said to have been thoroughly reengineered with an eye toward refining the system's sound delivery capabilities. It features four satellite speakers and a dedicated center channel speaker, all composed of durable materials and integrating the horn-loaded technology typical to Klipsch products.
Klipsch announced today the launch of its Image X7i line, the first-ever ceramic headphone models made by the Indianapolis-based company. The new in-ear buds are designed to accentuate bass, mids, and highs, and they are built to function along with iPhones, iPads, and iPods. The units retail for $200 and are available on Klipsch's site.
Audio hardware manufacturer Klipsch announced today the availability of its new HD Theater 600 Home Theater System. The new system expands Klipsch's HD Theater series, which was originally introduced in 2009. The HD Theater 600 system is available for $600 on Klipsch's site.
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.

Apple want ads hint at future Watch faces
An Apple job listing for a dedicated clock face team may suggest future fashion-brand partnerships, possibly in time for the updated watchOS updates that are likely to be revealed at this spring's Worldwide Developer Conference. Since the introduction of watchOS 2, there has only been four new watch faces, but three of them were left over from the first release, with only one truly new one -- the co-branded Hermés face exclusive to that edition. There is a rumored March 15 event, but if that takes place it will likely focus on new band options as regards the Apple Watch. http://apple.co/1O1TbTI
