Designed from the most functional and premium materials available, the Heritage HP-3 headphones feature die-cast steel, milled wood, premium leathers, and machined aluminum components. Boasting a 52mm KG-520 biodynamic driver housed in a back-vented design, the HP3 headphones deliver unsurpassed acoustic performance. Solid-wood, triple-vented ear cups add natural warmth and character. Angled sheepskin ear pads provide perfect depth and distress naturally with age. A genuine hand-stitched cowhide headband adds quality, strength, and becomes more pliable over time. Hand-assembled with visible copper nuts and bolts, our Heritage headphones boast a classic aesthetic that’s built to last.Dynamic soundCrafted with one engineering goal in mind: achieving high efficiency, low distortion, full-range Klipsch loudspeaker sound, the Heritage Headphones deliberately tugs on your emotions; extracting every detail from studio recordings and revealing both presence and detail without sacrificing bass. Featuring a recessed 52mm biodynamic driver, the Heritage HP-3 expands the soundstage to mimic the imaging characteristics of speakers instead of conventional headphones.Semi-open designProper 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 baffle, 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 Heritage HP-3 reduces pressure in your ears, and creates a consistent performance for any head or ear shape.CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v80), quality = 98Easy to driveCompared to other audiophile-grade headphones, the Heritage HP-3 is vastly different because of its high efficiency, one of Paul W. Klipsch’s original founding principles in loudspeaker design. During the headphone’s acoustical development, it was vital that it could be driven by virtually any source playing any content. With a flat, low impedance, the Heritage HP-3 will pair well with both high-end amplifiers as well as standard smartphones.Thoughtful detailsWhile most headphones are built for sleeping on a plane, the Klipsch Heritage HP-3 headphones comes pre-packaged with a custom solid-steel rod headphone stand, short (1.37m) and long (2.5m) detachable braided nylon cables, and a custom-fit 1/4” adapter. With a design this beautiful, these headphones are meant to be displayed and listened to, not stored in a bag inside a drawer.
