2019 saw Klipsch’s first entry in the true wireless earbuds field with the T5 True Wireless and its oval ear tips. Reviews for the earbuds were a mixed bag, but the design helped the T5 stand out from the competition. Klipsch looks to bring the same design energy for 2020 with the new T10 True Wireless.
Klipsch created the T10 with the help of Ear Micro, a company specializing in miniaturizing audio technology. It’s why Klipsch claims the T10 are the world’s smallest and lightest earphones, even though you can squeeze six hours of use out of them. They also pack dual-microphone active noise cancellation and the same balanced armature driver found in the Klipsch X10i. Thanks to the small size of a balanced armature driver, Klipsch can fit more components inside of the T10.
These components allow for a “built-in operating system with embedded artificial intelligence.” With the operating system, you can control playback with head gestures. You can also control the T10 using your voice. Even better, you don’t need a voice assistant like Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa to control the T10.
Rounding things out, the T10’s thin charging case looks like an oversized guitar pick with magnetic doors to get the earbuds in and out. As a bonus, the case supports wireless charging. Finally, eco-conscious buyers will be happy to learn the T10 is 95-percent recyclable.
All of these features come at a steep price: $649. It’s a steep price, particularly when you consider the AirPods Pro and its $250 price tag. If you can stomach the T10’s price, Klipsch said the earbuds will be available fall 2020.
