Classic Klipsch Sound
For over 70 years, Klipsch has been about giving you the dynamics of a live performance. You’ll find that same type of sound in the HP-3. Wide open and fun!
Impeccable Build Quality
From the leather stitching to the way the ear pads snap on, to the brass screws, everything in the HP-3 is first class.
Super Easy to Drive
While we feel like any good headphone could benefit from a great headphone amp, the HP-3 is efficient enough to be used with a smartphone.
Each Heritage HP-3 headphone component has been designed from the most functional materials available: die-cast steel, milled wood, premium leathers, and machined aluminum. Solid-wood, triple-vented ear cups add natural warmth and character. Angled sheepskin ear pads provide perfect depth and distress naturally with age. A genuine hand-stitched cowhide headband adds quality, strength, and becomes more pliable over time. Hand-assembled with visible nuts and bolts, the Heritage HP-3 is built to last.
Klipsch Dynamic Sound
Crafted with one engineering goal in mind: achieving high efficiency, low distortion, fullrange Klipsch loudspeaker sound, the Heritage HP-3 deliberately tugs on your emotions; extracting every detail from studio recordings and revealing both presence and detail without sacrificing bass. Featuring a recessed 52mm biodynamic driver, the Heritage HP-3 expands the soundstage to mimic the imaging characteristics of speakers instead of conventional headphones.
Proper acoustic venting drives the powerful and smooth delivery of the Heritage HP-3. Back-vented to the outside world as well as through the front baffle, the drivers can breathe and allow ambient noise to fuse seamlessly with the rhythm of your music, creating a natural presentation. Precisely vented between the front of the driver and directly behind the ear pad through a vortex guide, the Heritage HP-3 reduces pressure in your ears, and creates a consistent performance for any head or ear shape.
52mm Free-Edge Biodynamic Drivers
Driven by a pair of 52mm biodynamic drivers with more than one tesla of magnetic flux density, the Heritage HP-3 decreases distortion and provides superb dynamic range. Using a proprietary mixture of biocellulose and inorganic fiber, the biodynamic drivers achieve incredible levels of balance and control throughout the full frequency spectrum. Additionally, the urethane rubber surrounds create a driver that stays solid and rigid, moving like a piston instead of rocking and tilting like typical headphone drivers. This free-edge design further reduces tonal coloration and improves clarity.
Easy to Drive
Compared to other audiophile-grade headphones, the Heritage HP-3 is vastly different because of its high efficiency, one of Paul W. Klipsch's original founding principles in loudspeaker design. During the headphone's acoustical development, it was vital that it could be driven by virtually any source playing any content. With a flat, low impedance, the Heritage HP-3 will pair well with both high-end amplifiers as well as standard smartphones.
While most headphones are built for sleeping on a plane, the Heritage HP-3 comes pre-packaged with a custom solid-steel rod headphone stand, short (1.37m) and long (2.5m) detachable braided nylon cables, and a custom-fit 1/4" adapter. With a design this beautiful, these headphones are meant to be displayed and listened to, not stored in a bag inside a drawer.
