    KLH launches Ultimate One Headphones
    US speaker company KLH recently announced a move into the European market and they’ve now released their first headphone in support of that move.
    Included as part of a celebrity gift pack at the glitzy MTV Movie and TV Awards on June 15th, these studio reference over-ear headphones sport an eye-catching finish and will no doubt be adorning the bonce of many an A-lister who received a pair.

    KLH has adopted a classic open-air, over-ear dynamic design for the Ultimate One, with real ebony wood earcups to help maintain acoustic integrity and provide a distinctive look. The cups are supported by premium grade leather and dual layer memory foam for added comfort over longer listening sessions and the headband is hand stitched, adding to the overall sturdiness.

    Designed for a range of applications including TV, home stereo music, gaming, enthusiast and pro recording plus travel, the headphones employ 50mm pure beryllium drivers. The 18Hz - 22kHz frequency response and sensitivity rating of 97dB ensure a high fidelity performance which matches the premium look.

    KLH CEO and President David P. Kelley, said. “Our design goal with the KLH Ultimate One was to deliver a rich, enveloping musical experience that, simply put, elevates the soul. Given the amount of overwhelmingly enthusiastic responses we have received from critics, celebrities and consumers, we have achieved just that.”

    Former Klipsch executive Kelley acquired and rebranded the company to KLH Audio back in 2017 and knows a thing or two about high-end acoustics and his firm has spent the last few years building a portfolio of products which have been recently hitting the market.
    In addition to the Ultimate One, KLH also has several ranges of speakers available, including the Kendall floorstanders, Ames bookshelf speakers and Broadway elevation speakers

    Available for $299, the Ultimate One headphone comes with a 2 metre, 3.5mm detachable braided cable and removable quarter inch adaptor plus a choice of both hard and soft carry cases. See the KLH website for more details.
