Klipsch The One Plus, new Bluetooth 2.1 speakers

The American manufacturer presents the Klipsch The One Plus Bluetooth speaker, the latest evolution of the Klipsch The One which appeared in 2016. On the menu, numerous developments…

The latter, like the Klipsch The Three Plus speaker, is part of the Klipsch Heritage Wireless range. Which always appears obvious at first sight of the product featuring an American design straight from the 50s/60s, using noble materials: real wood veneer, fabric and copper buttons.

Klipsch The One Plus, connectivity

However, if the form harkens back to the middle of the last century, the substance is completely current with the integration of the latest technologies making it possible to respond to new consumer habits and to broadcast sound of optimal quality. Thus, if the on/off, volume buttons and the set of LEDs are still placed on the upper face, the connections have evolved compared to those of the first Klipsch The One of the name: in addition to the auxiliary microphone input 3.5 mm jack for connecting an external audio source (audio CD player, etc.), we note the presence of a USB Type-C port in line with the most recent audio devices. The latter allows you to access music files stored on a suitable device or to recharge the same device (smartphone, tablet, computer, etc.).
