Klipsch have delivered some great products over the years, including some legendary in-ear headphones well known amongst Apple gadget owners. With their latest product, the Klipsch GiG, they are looking to challenge the leaders in the portable bluetooth speaker market.
The Klipsch GiG falls into the ultra portable speaker market, meaning it’s small enough to fit comfortably into your briefcase, backpack, or even in your hand. While small in size, which means its in competition with the Jawbone Jambox’es of this world, Klipsch says they have crammed in 65 years of history and expertise to deliver a high quality sound.
Inside the Klipsch Gig you will find dual 1-inch full range drivers and dual 2-inch passive radiators. Power output is at a peak 20W with 2x5W RMS amplification. A pretty decent set up for such a small speaker. The bands running on the outside of the Klipsch Gig are replaceable (sold separately), allowing you to give it a bit of personal touch with the color of your choice. One central twistable button gives you full control of your Gig, although with bluetooth streaming your are likely to handle most from your player. As well as normal bluetooth pairing, the Gig comes with NFC for easy one touch pairing, and aptX support for a higher quality audio stream from supported devices.
The Klipsch Gig is available from amongst other the following UK retailers.
