Klipsch has just announced a new portable Bluetooth speaker range. Called Music City, this series includes three models, each representing an iconic American city: Detroit, Nashville and Austin.
As the year draws to a close, Klipsch is adding to its range of portable speakers. A few months after the battery-powered Klipsch GIG XL and Klipsch GIG XXL party speakers, the American manufacturer has released three compact portable Bluetooth models. While they each have a different format, this new trio have several characteristics in common, starting with IP67 water and dust resistance, and the integration of a microphone for phone calls.
Robust portable speakers
Klipsch Music City portable speakers are designed to follow music lovers wherever they go, whatever the circumstances. The Klipsch Nashville, Klipsch Austin and Klipsch Detroit models are IP67 certified. Robust and durable, they feature an easy-to-wash covering.
The two most compact models, the Klipsch Austin and Klipsch Nashville, come with a carrying strap. This accessory makes it easy to take the speaker out of the house, into the garden, to a friend’s house or to the beach. The Klipsch Austin model has a 12-hour battery life, while the Klipsch Detroit offers 24 hours, as does the Klipsch Nashville.
Klipsch Music City: daisy-chaining mode and app
With its new Music City range, Klipsch makes it possible to pair different speakers. Using the Klipsch Connect control app, the three mobile speakers can be paired in stereo. The app’s Broadcast mode enables the wireless connection of up to 10 speakers, including residential models such as Klipsch The One+ and Klipsch The Three+. Moreover, the Klipsch Connect app provides access to three-band equalizer settings.
