The latest example is the Klipsch T5 M, which are our pick as the best in-ear headphones at £50 to £100, and our overall What Hi-Fi? Awards headphone Product of the Year for 2019.
The T5 M wired earphones are part of a range of headphones from Klipsch, featuring neckband, sports and true wireless models, all of which use the same speaker driver derived from previous award-winning earphones.
The Klipsch T5 M earpieces are comfortable and easy to fit. Each one houses a 5 millimetre dynamic driver and features a 5.6 millimetre nozzle, on to which you can put the patented, Klipsch oval earbuds. And we’re big fans of the buds, which provide a snug fit and good noise isolation.
The headphone cable is equally solid, while the left earpiece offers an in-line mic and one-button control.
They may not be positioned as sports headphones but it’s worth noting that these buds are IPX4 certified, meaning they’re both sweat- and water-resistant.
Of course what really makes these earphones Award-winners is the class-leading sound quality.
The Klipsch T5 M deliver solid, powerful bass, crisp and controlled treble notes, and an overall sound that’s dynamic and exciting.
In-ear headphones at this price rarely deliver a sound that’s as mature and detailed as what’s on offer here.
If you’re still using the in-ear headphones that came bundled with your smartphone, then you’re missing out.
The Klipsch T5M Wired in-ears are the best around at this price, and that’s why they’re our 2019, in-ear headphones, Product of the Year.
