It doesn't always have to be True Wireless. Instead, Klipsch's new "T5 Neckband"-In-Ears feature all the electronics, including the battery, in the hand-stitched leather neckband.
It holds a battery capacity that lasts up to 15 hours – a clear advantage over "True Wireless" models, which Klipsch alludes to with the description "True Freedom". The oval earpieces are intended to provide particularly good wearing comfort. The T5 can decode Bluetooth signals with AAC and aptX, and the integrated microphone allows telephone calls with reduced ambient noise. Incoming calls are announced as a vibration and accepted via the control buttons on the neckband. Additional buttons are available for volume, skip and play/pause. The T5 Neckband will be available from September in black or white, with a sweat and splash-resistant exterior for 130 euros.
