Engadget Review

I expected a lot more from Klipsch’s first true wireless earbuds, given the company’s track record for audio gear. The T5’s unique design makes the set uncomfortable to wear and the sound quality doesn’t match up to the likes of Sony and Sennheiser. Even at a lower price, there are better options than what Klipsch offers here.

The Klipsch T5 True Wireless are a compelling entry into the true wireless market that bridge the gap between affordable, hyper-functional models and more lifestyle-driven offerings. If you want premium looks and sound alongside great battery life, there are relatively few models on the market right now that match up.

The Klipsch T5 True Wireless earphones sound excellent and look cool, but are priced just a little too high.

The Klipsch T5 True Wireless give class-leading true wireless headphones like the Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless a run for its money. While Sennheiser has the upperhand in overall sound quality, Klipsch's latest 'buds are no slouch and cost a third less. They're still pricey, but the Klipsch are a good value for audio enthusiasts that don’t want to compromise on battery life or wireless performance.

If you're looking for great sound quality in a unique package, these definitely tick those boxes. I can comfortably say that the Klipsch T5 are the best sounding earbuds I've ever used, wireless or otherwise. They also last forever on a charge, and have a truly stand-out look in an increasingly crowded product segment.

There’s really little to complain about with the Klipsch T5 True Wireless. If you can get over the arguably tacky design of the charging case, and you know that the earbuds fit well in your ears (the fit is unique compared to most other true wireless earbuds), these are one of the best sounding true wireless earbuds that we’ve tested. The fact that they’re $100 less expensive than most other “audiophile-grade” wireless earbuds, makes them even more attractive.
