Klipsch Heritage Headphone Development in Japan

Recommended Posts

We are in Japan working on the Klipsch Heritage Headphones.  

 

Check out some some of the progress.  Keep in mind these are prototypes so the materials, finish, coloring etc may look different...rest assured they will look like what we showed at CES.  

 

Take note of the super cool new design for the 50MM driver baffle.

Why in Japan?  This couldn't be done in the US?

 

We are working with Foster which is a fantastic factory with tons of HP experience...they are in Japan.

I am really stupid... so what driver technology am I looking at?

 

What price point is the system being designed to hit?

I am interested as well. I miss my Mode M40's.

 

Really like over the ear headphones.

I wonder if that is a typo and he means - Fostex instead of Foster? A much more familiar name for Japanese speakers/drivers.

I'm pretty sure it it Foster... the parent company of Fostex.
